Autumn is chemical peel season and if you are among the likes of the thousands of New Yorker’s who have already scheduled their routine peel regimen this fall your skin will thank you! The semi-annual chemical peel is paramount to any proper skin care regimen providing an opportunity to identify and correct troublesome areas in a painless and non-invasive way. Recommended for men and women between the ages of 28 and 68 chemical peels can treat a variety of skin conditions targeting the face, neck, hands and back.

Tone Your Skin

If you are in your teens or late sixties everyone strives to improve skin clarity and texture.  Dark spots and areas of discoloration whether from sun damage or hyper-pigmentation can wreak havoc on your complexion. A chemical peel will remove the top layers of your skin to effectively even your skin tone while promoting the regeneration of healthy new skin cells to leave you glowing!

Reduce The Signs of Aging

Irrespective of which peel is recommended for your individual needs all treatments provide deep exfoliation to allow your skin to absorb vitamins. This process causes the pores to shrink and tighten reviving your skin’s youthful appearance. With deeper chemical peels the skin is stimulated at the dermal level increasing collagen and elastin production which over time will dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Clear Acne and Acne Scarring

Chemical peels provide unparalleled results when treating superficial acne through deep exfoliation. The exfoliation process causes the cells to reproduce more rapidly than they ordinarily would speeding up the natural regeneration process of the skin cells. This prevents pores from clogging and also targets acne scars as old unhealthy skin is shed and new heathy layers of skin form to replace the old ones!

Light, medium and deep chemical peels are available containing either Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Trichloroacetic Acids or Phenol. It is important prior to having any chemical peel to take extensive precautions by spot testing the skin and identifying potential allergies and or interactions. Prior to having any chemical peels it is recommended to make sure the procedure is performed by experienced technicians and medical staff.
