Dr. Christopher Hove is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who regularly performs the cosmetic procedure. Dr. Hove has performed hundreds of facelifts, and he considers facelifts to be his specialty.

Before your procedure or after you heal, you may benefit from non-surgical treatments to enhance your facelift results. A chemical peel, for example, can minimize the signs of aging on the surface of your skin. Dr. Hove can discuss the benefits of combining a facelift and chemical peel during your consultation at our Philadelphia, PA, office.

Can a Chemical Peel and Facelift Be Combined?

Depending on your cosmetic needs and personal goals, Dr. Hove can combine multiple cosmetic treatments. At Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer surgical and non-surgical procedures that can redefine areas of the face like the eyes, brows, cheeks, and chin, among others. Our Philadelphia plastic surgery center also offers a wide range of injectable treatments.

One procedure that can complement a facelift is a chemical peel. A chemical peel and a facelift can minimize the signs of aging but through different means. The treatments target different areas of the face to deliver rejuvenated results.

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel reduces the signs of aging from the surface of your skin. The non-surgical treatment does not address skin laxity and deep folds in your skin. Our Philadelphia cosmetic treatment center offers light, medium, and deep peels.

Under the close supervision of Dr. Hove, the chemical will be applied to specific areas of your face to remove the outer layer of your skin. A chemical peel can treat sun damage, age spots, and other blemishes. Chemical peels generally require only a short recovery period.


A facelift is a surgical procedure that reduces sagging skin on the jawline, cheeks, and other areas of the face. The procedure requires incisions and repositioning of the skin to produce a more youthful appearance. Dr. Hove also performs mini facelifts for individuals with minor cosmetic concerns.

How Can a Chemical Peel or Facelift Be Combined?

The chemical peel procedure can be staged out a few months after your faceift surgery. By waiting until your skin has had time to heal, you can enjoy better cosmetic results and reduce your risk of side effects or complications.

Dr. Hove will let you know the specific treatment timeline. Combining a chemical peel to your overall treatment plan can deliver dramatic cosmetic results. While a facelift reshapes facial features, it does not address skin-level blemishes. Similarly, a chemical peel can’t address skin laxity.

Combining the two procedures (staged a few months apart), allows our patients to enjoy the benefits of firm skin that is free of surface blemishes.
