Chemical Peels for Skin Resurfacing in New York City

Our office in Manhattan offers chemical peels that are safe and effective, in a relaxing, private environment, administered by a board certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician. This unique skin-resurfacing procedure begins with the application of a prescribed chemical solution, based upon your cosmetic consultation with your physician or licensed aesthetician , and specially formulated for your skin type and goals. Working to gently clear away the top layers of your skin, our individually formulated chemical peels remove dead skin cells while improving smoothness, tone, and texture.

Chemical Peels Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical peels treat:

  • Acne scars

We offer individually-formulated, medical-grade chemical peels, administered and formulated by board certified dermatologists in a calm, clinical setting to provide the most transformative results available. Targeting mild to severe skin imperfections, these peels provide immediate and long-lasting change in skin texture, tone, and quality.

Benefits of our individually-formulated chemical peels:

  • Brighter, tighter more youthful appearance
  • Reduction of line, sun damage and pigmentation
  • Enhancement of your skin’s glow and radiance
  • Reduction of scarring
  • Non-invasive, and requiring little to no downtime, our chemical peels are suited for those looking for mild to deep exfoliation.

Most patients are just fine to resume their normal daily routine after a chemical peel, but you can expect to be more red and sensitive than usual for 2-5 days. We recommend waiting 24-48 hours post-peel before applying make-up, and to treat the skin gently and keep it protected from the sun. Post-peel instructions are carefully reviewed with you before leaving our office.
Is there any downtime with a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are a little to no downtime procedure. Most, but not all, patients will experience some degree of peeling after a chemical peel. Approximately 48 hours after the treatment is when the skin starts to peel. This is considered a side effect of the procedure, and will generally last 2 to 5 days.

After the initial healing period, you will begin to see improvement in the texture and clarity of your skin. Depending on your skin concerns, we recommend a series of peels to achieve optimal results.

“Chemical Peel” does not necessarily denote one particular treatment or chemical, and many cosmo-ceuticals have adopted this term for their products. The chemicals used by The Dermatology & Laser Group to specially formulate your individual peel are prescription-grade acids, individually mixed by the very same board certified dermatologist that has examined your skin that very same day. You will not find a safer, more individualized, or more effective chemical peel anywhere else. There simply is no substitute for this level of customization in skin treatments, and the results prove it!
