Chemical Peel NYC: Which peel is right for you?

Skinney Medspa top CoolSculpting and Emsculpt provider in NYC

Chemical Peel NYC: smoother, younger skin

A chemical peel in NYC is a popular skin-care treatment applied to the neck, hands, or face. Most people get a chemical peel to enhance their skin’s appearance and improve texture. During a peel, chemical solutions are applied to the site of treatment. The solution triggers both exfoliation and rejuvenation in the skin. Once the outer layer of skin peels off, the new skin beneath is smoother,  less wrinkled, and less blemished.

Benefits of Chemical Peel NYC treatments

Chemical peels are used to treat a large number of skin conditions or blemishes. Chemical peels are excellent for treating:

  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • sun damage
  • acne scars
  • hyperpigmentation
  • scars
  • melasma
  • uneven skin tone or redness

What type of chemical peel in NYC can I get?

Three broad categories of chemical peel are available from SKINNEY Medspa, the premier chemical peels NYC provider. These are:

  • Superficial peels, which use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid to gently remove the outermost layer of skin but penetrates no deeper than that.
  • Medium peels, which involve trichloroacetic or glycolic acid, passes through the outer layer and affects the middle skin layer. Medium peels are able to target some issues that result from damaged skin cells.
  • Deep peels, which penetrate enough to affect the entire middle layer of skin, rely on phenol or trichloroacetic acid to attempt to remove deep blemishes by clearing away damaged skin cells.

At Skinney Medspa, we use only the finest peels on the market. This includes the Glytone collection from

How is a chemical peel done?

Chemical peels are performed in a professional setting, like SKINNEY Medspa. Before the procedure, the patient ties back any hair and their face is cleaned. Eye protection, like goggles or gauze, is placed on the patient.

At SKINNEY Medspa, the premier chemical peel NYC provider, your skincare specialist might apply a topical numbing agent for some medium or deep peels to prevent pain or discomfort.

Different Levels of Chemical Peels

Light peel

The chemical solution is applied with a brush or cotton ball. The skin whitens during the application, and the skin might experience a slight stinging sensation. When the chemical has finished, it is made inert with a neutralizing agent or simply removed.

Medium peel

The skincare specialist administers the chemical solution using a special applicator or gauze. The skin gradually becomes whiter, and a cool compress is placed on treated skin to help alleviate discomfort. A stinging or burning sensation might be felt but doesn’t last for longer than 20 minutes.
