Chemical Peels

Chemical peels (derma peeling, chemexfoliation) are minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments involving the use of chemical solutions to exfoliate and strip away the damaged, outermost layers of the skin, in order to reveal youthfully smooth, radiant skin. Chemical peels can be utilized to correct a wide variety of problematic skin conditions that negatively impact the appearance of the face, neck and hands, including:

  • Sun-damage
  • Age spots
  • Acne or injury-related scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Freckles
  • Blemished, acne prone skin
  • Rough or scaly patches on the skin
  • Liver spots
  • Hyperpigmentation

CHEMICAL PEEL OPTIONS AND PROCEDURE

Chemical peels involve the delicate application of carefully calibrated chemical solutions to the skin, and are offered in three general strengths:

  • Light Chemical Peel (superficial peel): the gentlest form of chemical peel, appropriate for all skin types and ideal for patients suffering from uneven skin pigmentation, acne, dryness, or fine lines. Light chemical peels subtly improve the condition of the skin through the use of glycolic acid, alphahydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids to remove only the outermost layer (epidermis) of the skin, and to gently exfoliate the skin, leaving the skin looking refreshed and glowingly healthy. Because of the mild nature of the light chemical peel, patients can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment, and can safely schedule this type of peel at weekly intervals, for up to six consecutive weeks.
  • Medium Chemical Peel: more intensive than the light peel, medium peels are best suited for patients seeking to correct deeper wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. Medium chemical peels involve the use of TCA (trichloroacetic acid), often in conjunction with glycolic acid, to remove skin cells from not only the outermost layer of skin (epidermis), but also the upper part of the deeper skin layer (dermis). Patients may be given a pain reliever and/or oral sedative to minimize any discomfort during the 30-40 minute peel, and many patients choose to take 2-5 days off from work in order to allow their skin to heal to a point where makeup can be used to camouflage any residual peeling, redness, and discoloration.
  • Deep Chemical Peel: the most intensive form of peel, deep chemical peels offer dramatic results that can last upwards of 10 years. Deep peels use the powerful chemical phenol to treat issues affecting the innermost layers of the skin, such as: deep facial wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, scars, and pre-cancerous growths. For a deep chemical peel, patients are often given a local anesthetic and an oral or intravenous sedative to ameliorate any discomfort. Prior to a deep chemical peel, patients will be put on an 8-week pre-treatment regimen of prescription strength Retin-A, in order to prep the skin and accelerate the healing process. Skin regrowth after a deep peel takes approximately 1-2 weeks, and many patients take this period of time off from work to allow their skin to properly heal.

After conducting a thorough assessment of your current skin condition and treatment goals, Dr. Shapiro will recommend the appropriate chemical peel strength and formulation to safely and effectively fulfill your aesthetic objectives.
