TOTAL COST TCA FACE PEEL: $750-$2000
TCA peels (Trichloracetic acid) are safe, extremely effective, time proven procedures to resurface the skin of the entire face and neck, and even hands and chest. Resurfacing eliminates fine lines and even reduces or eliminates deep wrinkles on the entire face and neck. In addition, to a limited extent, stronger TCA peels will tighten loose skin. However, peels are not a substitute for surgery. The stronger the TCA peel, the better the results. The recovery time is longer with the stronger TCA peels. The recovery time varies from 3 days to about 10 days. Patients who are interested in a TCA face peel may call Dr. Bandeian’s office for a consultation.
The cost of the consultation is applied to the surgical fee. Dr. Bandeian does the TCA peels at Bristol Plastic Surgery Center with sedation. Dr. Bandeian gives his Bristol, Kingsport, Johnson City and Elizabeth chemical peels patients 4 prescriptions: one for antiseptic soap to use before surgery, one for prophylactic antibiotics, one for nausea, and one for pain medication.
The peel takes about one hour to do. After the procedure patients should have a responsible adult drive them home from the surgery center. By the day after the peel, most patients do not need to take any pain medication. Dr. Bandeian checks his cosmetic surgery Bristol patients on day after the peel and on several days after that. Patients will not look presentable until about 3 to 10 days after the peel.
Lasers are the high tech alternative to peels, but in Dr. Bandeian’s opinion, no laser treatment is as good as the peels he uses. Dr. Bandeian’s opinion is based on his results from peels compared to laser peels he has seen. Furthermore, lasers typically cost thousands of dollars to purchase, and often have high maintenance costs. Additionally, often, it is necessary for a physician to purchase more than one laser to be able to treat different wrinkles and different skin types. Since the chemicals used for peels are inexpensive, it is not surprising that laser skin resurfacing typically costs much more than peel resurfacing. The results of the stronger peels are spectacular, and Dr. Bandeian has the before and after photos to prove it. Before a patient has a peel, Dr. Bandeian shows her in consultation, his before and after photos so she can see for herself the great results patients get with peels.
PHENOL FACE PEEL
TOTAL COST OF PHENOL FACE PEEL: $4,000.00
A phenol peel resurfaces the face to correct lines from years of sun damage and from the effects of aging. The results of a phenol face peel can be dramatic and long lasting. Phenol face peels have been done for more than 50 years, and in the opinion of Dr. Bandeian, a phenol face peel is the best treatment for extensive facial lines. But don’t take Dr. Bandeian’s word. Compare the results of his phenol face peels to the results of any laser skin treatments. Patients who are interested in a phenol face peel may call Dr. Bandeian’s Bristol chemical peel skin care office for a consultation. The cost of the consultation is applied to the surgical fee.
