Chemical Peel Treatment

Skin Acne Glycolic Peel Treatment in NYC

“Chemical peel New York City” is one of the most frequently searched phrases amongst dermatology patients today. Little wonder, as chemical peel treatments are among the oldest and most trusted cosmetic procedures in the world, performed in ancient Egypt and Greece. Today, peel treatment in NYC helps people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. The Glycolic Acid Peel performed in our New York City and Brooklyn Dermatology Offices offers nearly immediate results restoring a more youthful appearance to skin.

Glycolic, Salicylic, and trichloracetic acids all stimulate the new growth of skin cells and collagen by removing dead and unwanted superficial layers of skin that build-up, creating a dull complexion. Peels induce a temporary and effective inflammatory response that promotes blood flow and signals the body to generate new tissue. A peel in one of our dermatology offices can vary in strength from a mild to strong concentration that will be determined by several factors including age, acne severity, skin sensitivities and desired results.  Used in conjunction with our proprietary New York skin regimen, we’ll watch together as your skin looks more rejuvenated, leaving a healthy, glowing complexion.

In our NYC and Brooklyn Dermatology Offices, we offer Chemical peels to treat early photo-aging changes, fine wrinkles, coarse skin texture, sallow skin tone, age spots and other pigmentary abnormalities. Peels gently rejuvenate skin and stimulate renewal at a cellular level, for long-lasting, more visible results. Peels also help to unclog pores for people that are prone to oily skin and blackheads.

Our Dermatologists recommend Glycolic Peels for the treatment of:

• Lines & wrinkles
• Pigmentation variance over face
• Unclog pores
• Post-inflammatory effects of hyper pigmentation after acne.
• Aging due to sun damage.

*Some fascinating new data suggests that chemical peels may even prevent skin cancer by delaying and reducing tumor formation after exposure to UV light (J Dermatol Sci 2010 Oct;60:21).
