Video: Dr. Kearney Discusses Skin Care
San Diego cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kearney, discusses skincare options at his La Jolla cosmetic surgery practice.
Dr. Kearney performs the peel under light sedation and you may go home the same day. Light activity is recommended for the first couple of days and most patients are finished peeling within seven to eight days. Your skin will be pink for a few weeks following the procedure and this can be easily covered with makeup.
You may be a candidate for a TCA chemical peel if you have sun damaged skin; fine wrinkles and lines; or brown spots and skin discoloration. READ MORE INFO »
Croton Oil Peel
You may be a candidate for a Croton Oil peel if you have deep lines or wrinkling around your eyes and mouth, skin discoloration or superficial acne scarring and wish to have more youthful appearing skin. There is significant tightening of the skin with a Croton Oil peel.

Fraxel Laser II
Fraxel Laser II resurfacing is a gentle, non-invasive skin rejuvenation laser that helps you rediscover the skin of your youth and offers rapid healing time. You may be a candidate for the Fraxel Laser if you have brown spots, melasma, fine lines and wrinkles or acne scarring. The Fraxel helps tighten your skin and reduce pore size!
Patients usually require 3-4 sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart, depending on your skin condition and schedule. Since the Fraxel only treats 20-30% of your skin at a time, downtime is minimal. Most patients experience some pinkness and minimal swelling which usually subsides in 2-3 days.
Recovery & Follow-Up
A topical anesthetic is applied 60 minutes prior to treatment to reduce discomfort and each treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete. Many patients are able to return to routine activities following their treatment. Results are immediate and progressive and most patients see optimal results in 2-3 months. READ MORE INFO »
