Chemical peels are a popular non cosmetic surgery procedure to restore the natural glow and radiance to the facial skin by performing a deep cleansing and removal of uppermost layers of dead skin cells.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain the potential effectiveness of different types of chemical peels.
Some providers may prefer to present chemical peel before and after photographs at the first appointment. This will allow the patient to understand the procedure better and make an informed decision. Judicious board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides chemical peel treatment to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations in this part of the country.
What are Chemical Peel Before and After Images?
Chemical peel ‘before and after’ images refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to an earlier patient who has undergone the same treatment with good results. The pictures include images taken before the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when the facial skin has completed healed and full effects of the chemical peel treatment can be seen.
The treatment provider will take the necessary care to obtain the photos with the consent of the patient and present them before new patients in an appropriate manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed. The sole purpose behind this exercise is to use the photos as a visual aid to educate new patients about different types of chemical peels and help them make the right choice.
In the age of digital technology and competition patients have a lot more power then they use to. Transparency is the key here and patients of Dr. Hustak have the awesome opportunity to make a judgment call before they even make a phone call. But for a chemical peel procedure, as will be mentioned again down below, they will have to schedule an appointment since there is not any before and after pictures on the site for this particular treatment.
No worries, a patient can perhaps see these outstanding pictures during the consultation so everyone is on the same page and a patient knows what they are contemplating. A picture speaks a thousand words right? Right!
When a patient seeks a chemical peel procedure for the first time, they may be unsure about which type of chemical peel to choose. Some patients may require only a mild treatment with a superficial peel, while some others may need more intensive treatment with advanced peels.
In some cases, the provider may recommend chemical peels in conjunction with another treatment to meet the patient’s goals. In each case, the patient can make the best decisions when they have access to chemical peels before and after photos.
Having Reasonable Expectations
While chemical peels are a proven and effective procedure to rejuvenate facial skin, it is important that the patient forms reasonable expectations from the treatment. Patients who clearly understand the potential results and have a realistic perspective will typically have better satisfaction in the end.
Therefore, an experienced provider may provide chemical peel before and after photos for the patient’s review. This will also mitigate the risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient when the treatment is over. Patients should be aware that chemical peel is a non-surgical procedure, and the results cannot be compared to an invasive plastic surgery such as a facelift.
Patients should carefully weigh their treatment options after evaluating the before and after photos. The provider will encourage them to review as many photos as possible during the pre-op consultation.
Online Image Gallery
The treatment provider has the option to present chemical peels before and after photos on their practice website. The photos can be included in a dedicated Image Gallery section on the site for free access to all but in this case in particular a patient will have to see if they see these types of images during the consultation since they are not currently on the website. It is very easy to set up a consultation, just make a phone call which many people have done and currently are doing. Dr. Hustak’s devotion to her craft is remarkable.
