About Chemical Peels
Our Newport Beach practice offers top-notch chemical peel treatments to improve the overall health and look of your skin. At SSK Plastic Surgery, we understand that your skin is exposed to harmful environmental elements everyday. This can lead to skin damage, such as sun spots, dryness, or uneven pigmentation. Treating yourself to a professional skin care treatment, such as a chemical peel, can bring significant improvement. A chemical peel is ideal if you have rough skin texture, wrinkles, and scars. During your treatment, a customized peel solution will be applied to your face and/or neck to remove the very top layer of skin. The results will leave you with smoother, clearer-looking skin. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi looks forward to speaking with you at his practice in Newport Beach, CA.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At our office, we offer chemical peels in different strengths (light, medium, and deep chemical peels) to accommodate our patient's skincare needs.
Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel on a lunch hour and go right back to your day. This type of peel will remove the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your facial features a brighter appearance, and softer texture. We may suggest that you schedule a light peel at least once a month for best results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of chemical peel goes deeper into your skin, and you may prefer to do this type of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also want to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and about an hour after treatment. Medium-depth peels are for patients, who have significant damage to their skin, deeper wrinkles, and darker pigmentation issues to correct.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the 3 types of chemical peels is the deep peel, and it will require the longest recovery time. This is an aggressive treatment that may leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for a few weeks. Patients, who have a deep peel, usually have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, entrenched acne scars, and/or deep-seated scars. As this type of peel is generally not pleasant to have without some sort of numbing agent, we may provide you with anesthetic as a part of your treatment.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

"I initially was drawn to SSK because of a promotion for their hydra facial. I met Shay and Alejandra who helped me understand the benefits of hydra facials. My complimentary hydra facial at their open house promotion was awesome!! I joined the SSK Club and now treat myself to monthly hydra facials at a reduced rate. My skin is glowing! I feel taken care of at SSK, and Shay and Alejandra make sure I feel this way. I've even tried the micro needling technique offered by Dr. Kellishadi which has taken my glow to a new level. Dr. Kellishadi obviously truly cares about his patients because he's interested in what's best for ME and not just what will make his cash flow grow. He said I don't need surgery to look great at my age. I'm 55. Most plastic surgeons would jump on the opportunity to talk a 55-year-old woman into chasing a youthful look through a face lift or some other expensive surgery. He spent the time to talk with me about my life goals and what makes me feel happy and alive, and we BOTH decided that going under the knife isn't what is best for me. I choose to maintain my best look by non-invasive procedures such as hydra facials and micro needling. Dr. Kellishadi cares about my satisfaction and happiness with SSK services despite the fact that I'm the opposite of a "high ticket" client. Because of this, I'm now a loyal customer."- C.S. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2019
Seeking the advice of a medical professional to have great skin is the first step in the journey to smooth, healthy skin. Patients with fair skin make the best candidates for a chemical peel, however, we can assess your skin in an examination in our office. We will also ask about your medical background before proceeding with a chemical peel treatment for optimal results. Chemical peel candidates, both men and women, will have noticeable issues with their skin, such as acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, discoloration, sun spots, fine lines, and much more. Depending on the tone of your skin, we can suggest different levels of chemical peels to meet your needs.
On the day of your chemical peel appointment in our office, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your treatment. We will make sure your skin is cleansed before administering the customized solution to your face and/or neck. We will brush the solution on your face and let it set for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Then, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent to the skin. You may want to bring a light sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after the treatment to avoid sun exposure.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Depending on the type of peel you have, you can expect your skin will itch and peel from a few days to a couple weeks. We will explain how to care for your skin during your appointment. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the healing process it is never a good idea to pull the skin off. You could cause scarring to your facial skin.
