Chemical Peel NYC: Which peel is right for you?

A chemical peel in NYC are popular skin-care treatments that tend to be applied to the neck, hands, or face. Most people get a chemical peel in order to enhance their skin’s appearance and texture. During a chemical peel, chemical solutions are applied to the site of treatment, which triggers both exfoliation and rejuvenation in the skin. Once the outer layer peels off, the new skin beneath is smoother,  less wrinkled, and with less blemishes for flawless looking skin.

Benefits of Chemical Peel NYC

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.

How is a chemical peel done?

Chemical peels are mostly performed at SKINNEY Medspa. Before the procedure, the patient ties back any hair, their face is cleaned, and eye protection, like goggles or gauze, are 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.

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 light stinging sensation. When the chemical has finished working, 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. If you are receiving a blue peel, then a blue dye is added to the chemical solution. 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. If the treatment was a blue peel, the skin might maintain a blue tint for a few days post-procedure.
