what is a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are chemical solutions that are used for exfoliation of the skin and increasing skin turnover. This process removes layers of skin cell build up revealing a smoother, clearer complexion.
What can chemical peels treat?
Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including, hyperpigmentation/dark spots, acne, mild scarring fine lines, wrinkles, and many other skin imperfections.
How often should I receive peel treatments?
Peels should be done every four to six weeks. Most conditions commonly require a series of four to six peels. This can vary based on the condition being treated and the strength of the peel being used.
Is there any downtime?
After the treatment, most New York patients experience mild to moderate redness and heat sensations that resolve within a few hours. The skin will look normal until around days three to five when the process of peeling begins. This process resolves for most patients by day seven.
Why can’t I just buy peels and do them at home?
At-home peels are great to add to your skincare routine, but they will only make superficial changes to the skin. Medical-grade peels can only be purchased by licensed professionals. The strength of these peels will give patients more results as they are able to drive into deeper layers of the dermis.
What peel is right for me?
The formulation and strength of the peel should be chosen by a licensed professional after a formal consultation is done. Skin type, condition, and severity will all play in role in the type of peel used for treatment. Call today to find out which treatment is right for you!
