  • Seaver Soon, MD, FAAD

Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Compare and choose photoaging, wrinkle and scarring indications for medium and deep combination chemical peeling.
  • Utilize exact techniques for medium trichloroacetic acid chemical peeling and deep regional phenol chemical peeling in combination on the face.

Dermatologic surgeons can treat hyperpigmentation, moderate to severe wrinkles, actinic keratoses, and pitted scarring in a cost-effective manner using combinations of chemical resurfacing techniques. This session will teach exact techniques for medium depth trichloroacetic acid (TCA) chemical peeling and regional deep phenol peeling (i.e., around the mouth) on the photoaged face. Didactic instruction and extensive video will be used. Superficial peeling will only be emphasized in the context of performing a medium or deep peel, and complications will be covered briefly in the same context. Familiarity with chemical peeling agents in advance is very helpful.
