Common FAQs on minimally invasive procedures

What are the best treatment options for busy working people?
A cosmetic procedure such as Botox can be undertaken during the lunch break at work, and the patient can be back to work at the end of the hour! Other non-surgical procedures such as dermal fillers and chemical peels also involve minimal downtime and the patient can be return to work quickly.

What are the potential risks of dermabrasion?
While dermabrasion, at our San Antonio plastic surgery facility, is used to smooth the skin, in some patients it can lead to skin pigmentation and discoloration. There is also a risk of infection to the skin after the procedure. The pores can increase in size for some time before reducing to their normal size.

How often should a chemical peel treatment be taken?
The effects of a single chemical peel treatment last for about one month. The first time it may be necessary to repeat the treatment each week for six weeks, until the skin of the patient clears up. Thereafter, the patient has to undergo chemical peel treatment once a month to retain clear skin.
