What is a chemical peel? It is a beauty treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin of the face. This solution results in the top layers of the skin peeling off. The skin underneath is newer, fresher, and less wrinkled. It is a great way to remove sun damage and even skin tone.

At NY Face Place, we use varying types of chemical peels. Some are more superficial, while others go deeper to produce more significant results. Which chemical peel is right for your skin?

Chemical Peels Offered at NY Face Place

Here is what you need to know about the chemical peels we use at our medical spa. While the results increase with each level, so does the recovery. Thus, you will need to balance these factors in your decision.

  • Superficial – We use a peel from the MD skincare line for our superficial treatments. If you have sensitive skin, this peel will be better for you. While minimizing skin irritation, it is still designed to prevent acne breakouts, reduce the appearance of facial pores, even out the skin tone, and diminish fine lines. It can be used on just about every skin type and is the most popular chemical peel that we offer.

  • Medium – We use a Jessner Peel for the next level of peel. This provides for even exfoliation and encourages faster cellular turnover. The results are immediately visible. This type of peel is for those with moderate sun damage and wrinkling. It also provides even more skin tone balancing.

  • Deep – While the deep effects of the Obagi Blue peel are not for everyone, it does provide the most dramatic results. This peel is often able to completely eliminate age spots and sun damage. It is like turning back the clock on wrinkles and damaged skin. However, due to discomfort, you will have to be sedated during the application. Recovery time is about a week and involves redness and peeling.
