The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can make you look tired and older than your actual age. Over-the-counter anti-aging creams may be ineffective in treating these minor imperfections. A retinoic peel can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.

How Does a Retinoic Peel Work?

A retinoic peel helps exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production to reveal fresher skin. The increased collagen production plumps skin layers to minimize enlarged pores and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment can also help reduce acne scarring and other minor skin imperfections. The treatment process can take less than 20 minutes. You may experience some minor redness and swelling, along with skin flaking for a few weeks after treatment.

After your treatment session, you can resume your daily activities immediately. Your provider will give you special instructions to follow during recovery to speed healing and minimize discomfort. You may notice improvement right away that will continue to improve over time. A retinoic peel may be used with other aesthetic treatments for skin revitalization.

Ideal Candidates for a Retinoic Peel

For best results, individuals seeking a retinoic peel should be in good health with no skin disorders. If you have a job that requires you to be outside frequently, you may want to seek alternative treatment options. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should seek other facial rejuvenation procedures. In order to be considered as an ideal candidate, you will need to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
