What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a quick, non-invasive treatment that exfoliates the skin and cleanses your complexion with key ingredients. They work by infusing your skin with specific chemical compounds and ingredients that will gently remove damaged skin cells from under the surface layer of your skin. Simultaneously, your healthy skin cells are triggered to multiply and migrate to the surface.

What types of skin issues can a chemical peel help?

Chemical peels are helpful in treating your uneven skin pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and sun damage. They can also rejuvenate your tone and texture of your skin.

Do chemical peels hurt?

Chemical peels are relatively painless. There are different levels of chemical peels, the mild ones have extremely mild pain results as well. The stronger the peel, the more discomfort you may experience. Dr. Harirchian has special treatments to help reduce any pain you may experience during a treatment.

Facelift, eyelid surgery

I am healthy and wanted my appearance to be reflective of the way I felt inside. I am very pleased with my procedure. Very natural results. Everything was just as Dr H explained to me. When I came out of recovery, Dr H was there.

Lower eyelid surgery

My experience with Dr Harirchian has been fantastic, both in the office and during/after my surgical procedure. She is knowledgeable, caring, warm and confident. I appreciate her personal touch (calling, accessibility). I was increasingly self-conscious of my lower lid bags/dark circles. I was ready for a permanent solution after trying fillers. I am beyond thrilled with the results.

Love my new eyes. I had dark circles under my eyes which would not go away with makeup or concealer. Dr H put filler in my eyes and it worked! I love it.

Amazing rhinoplasty result!

We had a very positive experience. Dr Harirchian was professional and caring. We will be back! My daughter was having a terrible time breathing and was unhappy with the size/shape of her nose. Dr Harirchian helped her breathe and gave her the nose she always wanted.
