We Have Resumed Normal Business Hours

Our patients, team members, and their families are the center of all we do as a company. Mountain State Oral & Facial Surgery is closely monitoring guidelines from the CDC and are dedicated to keeping people safe and healthy.

We are resuming normal business hours and operations including all elective and non-elective treatments. As we re-open we want our patients to know they will see some changes in our offices including but not limited to social distancing measures, increased sanitization, increased use of PPE, and other changes. These changes are to protect our staff and patients as we are committed to serving the needs of our community during these difficult times.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and update our response as more information is made available from the CDC. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this difficult time.

Stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of scars, address acne and hyperpigmentation, and much more.

Chemical peels procedure

During your consultation, you will be given a thorough evaluation to determine your skin type (the ideal candidate has fair skin and light hair), areas of concern, and depth of treatment. You may be asked to stop taking certain medications prior to your chemical peel treatment.

There are three types of chemical peels:

  • Superficial peel. A mild acid, such as alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy, is applied to the skin to remove only the outermost dermal layer. This is a light chemical peel, also known as a “lunchtime” peel. Healing time is approximately 1 to 7 days.
  • Medium peel. A stronger chemical solution is used that is intended to peel away damaged cells on the outer and middle layers of the skin. Healing time is approximately 7 to 14 days.
  • Deep peel. A very strong chemical solution is applied that will penetrate the middle layer of the skin and remove damaged cells. Healing time is approximately 14–21 days.

During your chemical peel, it is normal to feel a stinging sensation. Stronger peelings may sting more than a light peeling. Redness, swelling, and irritation may occur. You may be given or prescribed lotion, cream, or medication to make you more comfortable as you heal.

It is important that sun exposure is temporarily avoided after any chemical peel, although the period of time can vary due to your skin type, healing process, and the type of chemical peel treatment. We will provide you with detailed instructions to guide you throughout every step of the way.
