What Are Chemical Peels?
To provide the highest quality results from chemical peel treatments, The Plastics Clinic provides you with choices. Your personalized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids) will reveal more radiant skin. At our South Jordan, UT office, we offer chemical peel treatments that help to minimize skin irregularities, including scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dry patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels remove dead or damaged skin cells using a personalized peel on the skin, which causes the upper layer to peel off. When your skin heals and starts to rejuvenate and repair itself, you should see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive technique to make your skin radiant and is used for the face, neck, and décollatage.
At our South Jordan, UT office, we perform chemical peels on multiple levels (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate our patients' skin concerns and goals.
Light peels: You can receive a light chemical peel during your lunch hour and get back to your day. This strength of peel will remove the outer skin layer (the epidermis), giving your face a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We typically recommend that you receive a light peel around once a month for the ideal glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of peel penetrates further into the skin, and patients usually decide to do this type of facial rejuvenation treatment over an extended weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for increased discomfort during and up to an hour after a chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have deeper damage to their skin, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of peels is the deep peel treatment, and it will require the longest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that can leave your face itchy, swollen, and peeling for several weeks. Patients who get a deep chemical peel may have dark age spots, sun damage, prominent acne scars, and deep-seated scars. As this strength of chemical peel is generally uncomfortable for most patients, your aesthetician may provide you with mild anesthesia prior to your procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Based on the strength of the chemical peel, you may anticipate a number of the following benefits for your skin from your session at The Plastics Clinic:
- Moisturized, rejuvenated skin feel
- Decrease in wrinkles and age signs
- Evened and neutral complexion
- Reduction of pores and other skin imperfections
What to Expect from Chemical Peels
Depending on the type of peel you receive, you can expect the treated area to itch and peel from several days to a couple of weeks. Our doctors and our team of highly trained specialists will discuss how to care for your skin during your consultation. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches during the recovery, it is never helpful to pick the skin off. You may create scarring on your skin.
The Plastics Clinic Reviews
Best surgeon! Best staff! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
First thing I want to share is if your end goal is to have a tummy tuck- don’t touch your body until that time! Long story short, prior to seeing Dr. Garlick I had laser liposuction aka smart lipo. I followed all of the after care but still had severe scar tissue which made my tummy tuck feasible but different. I consulted with 4 other plastic surgeons before seeing Dr. Garlick and I always felt like they were telling my what I wanted to hear vs being honest, up front and giving me realistic expectations. I left all 4 feeling kind of off- I knew Dr. Garlick’s books were filling up but I had a tug to call to get one more consult ( 5 should be enough, right?) in the mean time I had actually paid (refundable fortunately) and scheduled a surgery date with another surgeon. My plan was if I heard the same the thing I would continue with this other surgeon. Call it divine intervention or luck I got a call that Dr. G had a consult cancellation- it was almost 3 months prior to my scheduled consult. The consult was exactly what I was looking for, compassionate, inquisitive, understanding and realistic. I am a mom of two, I like(d) my body I just wanted to enhance it. He understood that and also explained what was going to need to happen in a way that made sense. He also didn’t make me feel bad or dumb for having my prior procedure (you don’t know what you don’t know), that was huge for me. I was able to snag one of his last available dates for the year, I’m writing this almost a week post op and when I didn’t think it couldn’t get better it really did, one my nurses Hope, she was so straightforward and funny. I loved her dryness, honesty, and let’s get this done attitude. Dr. Garlick’s bedside manner is like none I have ever experienced. Not only is he personable, everything we talked about in my consult is exactly the same thing we went over before I headed into the OR- he never wavered. He talked my husband through aftercare gave dinner spot recommendations. He called to check on both of us after my surgery and has answered my text messages throughout this first week of recovery, which has been huge because I live out of state. He has treated me like I am his only patient this week-he embodies the saying “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”Plastic surgery is personal, it’s emotional and can be exhausting, I am thankful that I was able to have this experience with Dr. Garlick and his team and I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
I’m so glad I did my research and went with Dr. Garlick for my breast lift & augmentation. My results were far better than I could have ever imagined. I received excellent symmetry, a healthy recovery and zero complications. Dr. Garlick has a great bedside manner and was always a quick call or message away to answer all my questions no matter the time. If you value your results and want the very best I highly recommend getting on his consultation list. He’s most definitely worth the wait!
I came to Dr. Garlick for a mommy makeover. (Breast aug, tummy tuck and lipo in legs and flanks). On my consult, I had my times wrong and arrived 30 mins late. Everyone was so kind and I still got to see him that day. He has been amazing at answering all my questions and my results are simply amazing. I would definitely recommend this doctor.

Chemical Peel FAQs
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin concerns and aesthetic goals. In your initial consultation with our South Jordan, UT team, they will help you choose which type of peel is right for your skin. Some factors you might consider are your general health, the type of skin you have, the depth of your skin concerns, the time you can commit to recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. For first-time patients, it's better to select a light chemical peel and see what you think of the results. After this, you and your practitioner or aesthetician might alter your plan to find the best chemical peel level for your needs.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Both dermabrasion and chemical peels are facial rejuvenation procedures that correct surface imperfections to give your skin a softer appearance. The major difference is that dermabrasion requires surgical tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush) to remove the surface skin layer through a careful scraping process. A chemical peel uses a caustic solution that is applied to your skin to dissolve damaged skin cells. During your consultation, your team member at The Plastics Clinic will explain the advantages of each treatment and help you decide if dermabrasion or a chemical peel is better to achieve your skin goals.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Based on the formula used, you might feel mild discomfort while it is actively treating your skin. If you have a light peel, you may feel some stinging but this can be alleviated with the use of a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are better for deeper skin blemishes and give you longer-lasting results; however, they are usually more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, skin medications, and soothing ointments can be applied to minimize your discomfort during your treatment. Dr. Chiddy, Dr. Garlick, or a team member will explain post-treatment skin care to help your skin heal.
