Skin peeling treatments are a terrific way to improve texture, tone, and uneven pigmentation on the face. At Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY we offer a range of chemical peel solutions and strengths that can be customized to give you the results you desire.
What is chemical peeling?
Chemical peeling is a non-surgical treatment that improves the skin. A specialized chemical solution is spread over the skin, causing it to peel off, revealing younger-looking, rejuvenated skin.
Chemical peels can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, most commonly: uneven pigmentation, acne, sun damage, lines, and wrinkles. Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center offers a diverse group of peels that are specific to different concerns. During your consultation, we can work with you to determine the peel that is best for your skin type and condition.
Benefits of chemical peels:
- Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
- Ideal for treating sun damage
- Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation
- Improves the appearance of acne spots and scarring
- Lightens areas with age spots, freckles, and melasma
- Can be combined with other treatments to achieve more extensive rejuvenation
Who is a candidate for chemical peels?
Patients with lighter skin and hair are best suited for chemical peels. Patients with darker skin may experience satisfactory results, depending on the concern being treated. Patients with dark skin may need milder peels.
What to expect before the peel
Before a chemical peel, patients will be given instructions that may include specific skin preparation and the discontinuation of certain medications. Please consult with your doctor prior to stopping any medication.
Before the peel, the skin is thoroughly cleaned to remove any oils before the chemical solution is applied.
What to expect after the peel
Depending on the type of peel patients may notice anything from mild flaking and redness to swelling, and blisters with deep peeling. Skin will be sensitive to sun, so it’s important to avoid sun exposure and protect the skin.
