Chemical peels can be nerve-wracking for many people, especially if the treatment does not behave as expected. But, if your chemical peel doesn’t begin peeling, it is not a cause for worry. Healing after a chemical peel can vary from person to person, which does not mean the treatment won’t be effective. Certain factors can also affect the healing process of a chemical peel.
Using products like Vitamin C serums, retinol, or your at-home chemical peel treatments can cause the peel not to peel as much as expected. Regular facials or exfoliating products can also reduce the peeling aspect of a chemical peel. Depending on the type of formula and acid used, some patients’ skin may not react as dramatically to the peel as others.
Regardless of why your skin doesn’t peel, it doesn’t mean the treatment isn’t working. The outer layers of the skin may not react, but the deeper tissue is still affected and will produce the desired results. Always allow the treatment adequate time to work before expecting the results, as chemical peels take seven days to two weeks to see results.

Thigh lifts or thighplasty can be a confusing topic for many people seeking to understand more about the procedure. The terms are often used interchangeably, and there is no clear answer to the differences. However, both a thigh lift and thighplasty are essentially the same thing. The terms are used in the same way a nose job or rhinoplasty are exchanged for each other. However, this doesn’t mean there is only one type of thigh lift. There are three commonly used types of thighplasty procedures which can greatly benefit patients.
There is a medial (inner) thigh lift, mini thigh lift, and lateral (outer) thigh lift. These procedures are performed based on the patient’s needs, goals, and physical makeup. Dr. Jonov can provide insight and information on which procedure would fit your unique needs during a consultation.
A thigh lift or thighplasty removes thigh fat and excess skin, bringing a natural contour to the thighs. It can help smooth the skin, thin the thighs, and eliminate excess skin causing frustration. Thigh lifts greatly benefit patients and bring confidence and comfort back to their lives.
