Is a Facial Peel Right for You?

There are many factors to discuss when considering a chemical peel. Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery's highly skilled and attentive team, led by Paul A. Berry, M.D., and Kevin P. Kunkel, M.D., is here to help you make an informed decision. Before proceeding with treatment, they'll take the time to:
 
  • Explore why you're considering a facial peel and the desired outcome, taking into account your specific condition and lifestyle and personal preferences
  • Determine which facial peel is best for you
  • Explain what to expect before and after the procedure
  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions, previous surgeries, drug allergies and medical treatments, including current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements, as well as alcohol and tobacco use
  • Discuss general and individual risk factors, as well as side effects, most commonly bruising and bleeding at the injection site, but these can vary depending on the filler used
 
Drs. Berry and Kunkel, are board certified and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Why is this important?
