Eye PeelEye Peel: A Beneficial Treatment

The Eye Peel can turn back the clock. Is the skin around your eyes looking tired due to wrinkles, roughened texture, and irregular coloration? Loss of skin quality is a significant factor contributing to the aging of your lower eyelid skin.  Shereen Timani, M.D. at Johns Creek Dermatology in Johns Creek, GA, offers a mild resurfacing procedure to diminish the changes caused by damage to under eye skin and the crows feet area. The mandelic acid eye peel is a remarkable treatment which safely and gradually improves the quality of the skin around the eyes, resulting in a reduction of the appearance of fine lines and discoloration.

Lower eyelid chemical peeling is appropriate for patients who would like to see a reduction in fine wrinkling, softening of deep creases, and smoother texture around the eyes without surgery. We recommend the mandelic acid peel to produce a freshening effect for the thin and delicate skin around the eyelids, as it yields visible results without scarring, significant changes in pigmentation or muscle contraction. Mandelic acid peels are a type of alpha hydroxy (AHA) peel, similar to a glycolic acid or lactic acid peel.  Because mandelic acid molecules are larger than either of these acids, mandelic peels do not penetrate into the dermal layers as deeply, so they are less irritating, yet effectively smooth out the lines around the eyes and brighten the skin tone.  One of the benefits of the mandelic acid peel is that it is appropriate for all skin tones.  Discuss your options with Dr. Timani to determine the best skin revitalization treatment for your skin characteristics.

What to Expect From the Eye Peel Process

Dr. Timani will discuss the post-treatment care program to minimize the chance of pigmentation discoloration, which consists of a daily application of sunscreen and other protective measures such as the use of sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats for several months following the eye peel.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results will vary.
