Patients who are ready to address a variety of issues with their skin may also ask their dermatologist, “Should I get a chemical peel?” Dr. Roger Koreen of Huntington, NY may suggest chemical peels for specific patients.

Chemical peels explained

A chemical peel is a specialized treatment used to address several skin concerns. Chemical peels can be used to treat:

  • Acne
  • Poor texture and tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Chemical peels work by using a combination of ingredients on the skin for a short period (seconds to minutes) to remove the dead skin cells and stimulate the production of fresh new skin. By doing this, the skin is quickly rejuvenated.

When to consider a chemical peel

Chemical peels are used in several different situations. When patients have several issues that can be improved with one service, Dr. Roger Koreen may highly recommend it. Patients can also choose from mild to aggressive peels, depending on how many they want to undergo and how much social down time they can arrange for recovery. More aggressive peels take longer for skin rejuvenation than mild ones.
