"I will recommend this office over and over again! The results from my procedure were phenomenal. Dr. Kunasz was great! I have never met staff so eager and friendly to help. Melanie called me back with all the details, and I appreciate that greatly. Happy customer"- A.S. / Google / Apr 19, 2019
"Dr Chan gave me the results I wanted and made me feel so comfortable. He even asked to see me before my procedure because I had been a couple of months since our first consult. It was my delay in scheduling the procedure because of everything I had going on, but he wanted to make sure that he met with me so that we were in agreement with the plan and our goals. Healing process has an easy and wonderful and I know it’s because of us have expertise. His staff treated me like family and I felt like they were truly connected to my needs and worries. They took the time to individually help me get my pre op work because I missed one of them. As a healthcare provider, I highly, highly recommend this practice and Dr. Chan. I had no idea I would be able to get the results that I wanted, but his precision and skills are exceptional!!! I can’t say enough about this practice! Go see them. They will be honest and give you the compassion and knowledge you are looking for."- M.G. / Google / Nov 01, 2019

Ideal candidates for The Perfect Derma Peel desire rejuvenated, healthier-looking skin. Nearly all skin types are candidates for this treatment, but those who receive the best results have:
- Acne scars
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Large pores
The application of The Perfect Derma Peel takes only about 15 minutes to apply. There is no need for preparation or preconditioning of the skin before the treatment. However, those taking Accutane will need to stop approximately three months before their treatment for optimal results. During the application of the peel, you may feel a slight tingling sensation that will subside quickly. Your skin will become numb within minutes of application. We will use a fan to help keep you comfortable during your procedure. After the peel has been administered to the skin, patients will be released to return home. You should leave the skin alone during the first 24 hours of peeling and should avoid sun exposure and cosmetics.
What to Expect
Immediately following application, your skin may appear pink or red as if you have a minor sunburn. Peeling will begin on day three after treatment and will continue up to seven days. The results offered by this treatment are dynamic and include smooth, glowing skin and a decrease in fine lines, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. As long as you care for your skin over the coming weeks, your results will be long-lasting. STARS Plastic Surgery does recommend repeat treatment for patients with more severe skin conditions, such as cystic acne and melasma. However, many patients see dramatic results after just one treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is The Perfect Derma Peel different than other peels?
The Perfect Derma Peel is comprised of a unique formula that combines intense ingredients with effective acids for one powerful treatment. This chemical peel lifts fine lines and treats melasma, acne, and other skin conditions in as little as seven days of healing. When compared to other peels, The Perfect Derma Peel offers more comprehensive results in shorter treatment time.
How many treatments will I need?
Patients with minor skin imperfections typically see beautiful results after just one treatment while patients with more complex conditions, such as melasma and active acne, may require up to three treatments.
How long will my results last?
Those who maintain an ideal at-home skin care regimen will sustain their results for a long time. Our team can help you choose skin care products that will protect your skin and amplify your results. We recommend the use of SPF each time you will be exposed to the sun to protect your skin from new imperfections.
What skin types are ideal for this treatment?
Unlike many other peels, The Perfect Derma Peel is safe and effective for use on all skin types (Fitzpatrick scale 1 – 6).
How should I prep my skin for treatment?
Another exciting benefit of The Perfect Derma Peel is that there is no need for preconditioning or prepping of the skin prior to treatment. Patients using Accutane and Retinols will need to discontinue use at the recommended time prior to treatment so they can attain optimal results. Our team will help you determine when to stop using these medications.
