About Chemical Peels

Offering the best in chemical peel aesthetic treatments, Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center provides patients with multiple options for a customized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) that give you healthier, more radiant skin on the face. At our Raleigh, NC office, plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle offers chemical peel treatments that help to resolve skin flaws including scars, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels work by removing dead or damaged skin cells with the application of a customized solution on your skin, which causes the top layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you should notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive way to make your skin bright and is appropriate for the face, neck, and décollatage.

Variations of Chemical Peels

At our Raleigh, NC office, we provide chemical peels in different levels (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skincare needs.

Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel on your lunch break and immediately get back to your day. This strength of peel will remove the top layer of skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you get a light treatment around once a month for the best glowing results.

Medium-depth peels: This strength of chemical peel penetrates deeper into your skin, and you'll usually want to do this level of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. Prepare yourself for more discomfort during and around an hour after chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have significant damage to their skin such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.

Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep peel treatment, and it will require the most recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that could leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for several weeks. Patients who receive a deep peel usually have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, significant acne scars, or deep-seated scars. As this strength of peel is typically uncomfortable for most patients, we will provide you with mild anesthesia prior to your procedure.

Ideal Candidates

Getting the opinion of an aesthetic professional is the first step in the journey to healthier skin. Dr. Lyle at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center can assess your skin in a consultation in our Raleigh, NC office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for ideal results. Chemical peel candidates of both genders typically have noticeable problems in their skin like acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, discoloration, sun spots, fine lines, and much more. We will suggest multiple types of chemical peels to fit your needs.

Procedure Technique

During your procedure at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position before administering your peel. We will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized solution to your treatment areas. We will massage the solution onto your face and let it set for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Finally, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. You are encouraged to bring a light sunscreen or a hat to wear outside after the procedure to protect from environmental exposure.

What to Expect

Depending on the level of the peel you choose, you can expect the face to itch and peel from a few days to a couple weeks. Dr. Lyle or a member of our team will explain methods to care for your skin during your consultation. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during post-treatment recovery, it is never helpful to pick the skin off. You could cause scarring to your delicate skin!

Could not asked for a better doctor to do my tummy tuck. Everyone in the office is wonderful along with Dr. Lyle.

Dr. Lyle performed a reduction/lift on me after another area surgeon totally screwed it up.. He was amazing and the results are breathtaking.. doing revision surgery is VERY HARD.. His gentleness with me, explaining everything.. taking time to talk to me beforehand and video talk to me just to make me feel confident meant everything.. I HIGHLY recommend him.. and his staff.

I went to see Erin for Botox. She is a WONDERFUL injector. She knows exactly what you need and shares her expertise with you. She has a soft hand, makes sure you are comfortable and gives you the best results. The front office staff are a joy. They are friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend Dr, Lyle's office!

Dr. Lyle, You are the best Plastic Surgeon! Thank you for the superb surgical artistry with my Breast Mastopexy. You have changed my life and I wish I didn't wait until I was 52. How do I begin to let you know how much I appreciate what you did for me? You actually gave me back my self-image. I think, without realizing it, I had lost it for a while. I had become so self-conscious of my breasts that I felt that was all people saw when they looked at me. I can't get over the difference!! It's like night and day! You have quite a gift. I'm thrilled with the results. No more neck, shoulder or back pain and can now begin working on my posture (girls out). I am three months post-op and over the moon about my results. So grateful! Lastly, I want to let you know that your staff is the BEST (as if you don't already know that). They were all friendly, courteous and accommodating. I never once felt like just another patient in your office. Thank you!

Dr. Lyle did plastic surgery between my toes removing tissue after a poisonous spider bite and while he was looking over my spider bike, he noticed something on my face he was concerned with, something dermatologists had been looking at for 8 years. It was Lentigo Maligna Melanoma, he just may have saved my life. He did a biopsy and surgery within a week! He care, he goes above and beyond, such a wonderful bedside manor. So calm, knowledgeable, absolute perfection in his surgery on foot and especially my face/lip... cannot say enough good things about him. I have had weight loss surgery, and he will be the person I have called to do some abdominal reconstructive surgery. He is the best and I have recommended many people to him over the years, they too were so happy with their procedures. Best of luck to you, Dr. Lyle is your doctor for sure!

About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an innovative, fat diminishing treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by freezing away tough fat cells without resorting to more invasive procedures. The technique includes the use of regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they can be naturally expelled from your body to reveal a slimmer physique. At Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center in Raleigh, NC guided by plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle, we offer state-of-the-art CoolSculpting to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Schedule a consultation to learn more about cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting and decide if this treatment is right for you.

Ideal Candidates

Although this minimally invasive procedure has proven fruitful with both men and women of different ages, those who benefit the most from CoolSculpting:

Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight

Struggle with stubborn fat patches that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts

Live a healthy and active lifestyle

Do not desire or are not good candidates for more invasive procedures

Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment

Procedure Technique

After your consultation with Dr. Lyle, he will plan and organize your CoolSculpting treatments. During your procedure, a gel pad and CoolSculpting applicator will be applied to the treatment area and the controlled cooling will start. The cooling, delivered by the applicator, will begin to attack and paralyze the fat cells. You will likely feel coolness at the time of your treatment, but this does not typically cause great discomfort. As the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat into the predetermined treatment area, you may feel a small amount of tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.

What to Expect

Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can expect to return to your daily activities following your treatment. In most cases, you can return to work or school immediately after. Side effects of the procedure usually include redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, and discomfort around the treated site. These side effects are temporary and usually subside in the days following your procedure. You should expect to notice changes in as little as three weeks, and you will see the most obvious and dramatic results 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.

A Slimmer Contour

No body is perfect and we all have things we wish to change, like stubborn areas of fat that will not respond to exercise and a healthy diet. Due to modern technology, you no longer have to choose between living with undesired fat or undergoing liposuction. Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center is excited to offer Raleigh, NC residents CoolSculpting treatments to minimize areas of stubborn fat without invasive procedures for a smaller, tauter body contour. Schedule a CoolSculpting consultation with Dr. Glenn Lyle to find out if you are an ideal candidate for CoolScupting, or if another procedure would better help you meet your aesthetic goals.
