A chemical peel is a solution of beneficial chemicals that can give your skin, usually the skin on your face, a deep clean. At our dermatology clinic in Bellmore, NY we offer chemical peels that treat a variety of skin conditions because the peels come in a range of strengths. You should only get a chemical peel from a trained, licensed technician or dermatologist.
Peels are forms of acid that chemically and mechanically remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
We offer the most popular and effective types of peels, which are Trichloroacetic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy (glycolic acid), Beta-Lift (salicylic acid) and Jessner’s peels.
Peels are useful to treat acne, remove sun damaged spots, treat pre-skin cancers, shrink pores, balance oil production,remove fine lines and wrinkles, and improve collagen production to decrease the signs of aging.
This will vary for everyone based on many factors such as your skin type, your skin pigmentation and the degree of damaged skin you have.
