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
"It´s been a month since my wife has gone under surgery with Dr. Kelishadi for a breast augmentation procedure, and the results are incredible. My wife has been wanting to get this done for a very long time, but we were a bit concerned about the final outcome. Why have we waited so long, my gosh, she's so happy now, and I'm even happier :-) Dr. Kelishadi and his staff, Alejandra, Shea, and the anesthesiologist he works with, have been professional and supportive throughout the entire process. Dr. Kelishadi even contacted us himself, the first Sunday after the procedure to see how my wife was doing. We are so thankful and definitely recommend him 100% to anyone who wants to look better, feel better and be treated like family, no doubt. Thank you Sean."- C.S. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2018

"I'm just barely 2 months post op from my breast augmentation , and I'm in Hawaii celebrating in my bikinis! Lol lol So first of all, a shout out to Dr Kelishadi and his staff: Alenjandra and Shea- they ladies are absolutely wonderful! So you guys know the classic tale, mother of a couple kids decided to get breast augmentation after breastfeeding destroyed them.... yup that's me! I ended up choosing SSK because I was impressed by his resume and portfolio- which he extensively went over during our consultation. Dr Kelashadi, I felt connected very well with me and it's important for me to feel like my doctor will care about me. He's also hip, young, healthy and looks like he has steady hands. The consultation itself is .., not gonna lie... extremely awkward...., but it's part of the process. That's when you try on different implant sizes and the doctor examines your breast. In the end we decided on 365cc, high profile which the doctor recommended after examining my proportions. The surgical facility itself was very clean and the staff was amazing. I had a wonderful experience. Recovery was fast and quick.. but to be fair..... my pain tolerance is high... especially after giving birth 2 times... After the recovery... my breast looked pretty hard and square... I definitely wasn't ready to wear a tube top or anything. By the week 6 however... they were taking form and I was so excited about them... and each day after the 6th week... they looked progressively better and better. So i am nearly 8 weeks out... they are not 100% settled yet but I don't care... im in Hawaii in a bikini! Lol Anyway, I understand everyone's experience will be different... I just happened to have a very ideal experience and I am tremendously grateful for everything and everyone. I am very happy with my body. The results, honestly... ended way better than I thought it would be... going in I had no expectations because I seriously hated how they looked originally. I just can't believe how I look in certain clothes and in bikinis- I am sooo happy!"- T.L. / Yelp / May 19, 2018
"The best of the best... I wish there were more stars to add to his review, but if the five stars describe the best, then that would be Dr. Kelishadi. I have no words to describe the amazing job he's doing with every case. He is very patient, meticulous and never gives up until the smallest detail is taken care of. Thank you Dr Kelishadi for everything"- S.A. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
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.
