Your question regarding light chemical peels after a facelift is complicated. A facelift is really intended to lift sagging fat pads and skin. It can have some improvement for facial lines that are deep, but it really doesn’t treat the skin itself. Chemical peels on the other hand do treat the skin. For example a chemical peel can help to reduce fine lines and brown spots, while that is not the role of a facelift. So to think that a chemical peel will maintain your facelift results is really misleading. What a chemical peel can do for you is to improve the tone, texture, color and fine lines in your skin. Whether it is a series of light chemical peels or a surgical peel, either can help the skin appearance significantly. Light chemical peels are done as frequently as every 3-4 weeks. The surgeon’s peel is usually only done once every several years as long as you maintain your skin with good skin care, sun protection, light peels and perhaps Botox.
