Which chemical peel is right for me?
- Posted on: Jul 30 2020
Today’s technology allows for patients in the Bedford, NY area who are considering skin and body treatments to find ways to enhance their appearance with lasers, ultrasound energy, and radiofrequency energy. However, when it comes to improving the skin’s texture and tone, a certain treatment that has been used for decades to enhance skin still outperforms many of these services: chemical peels.
What is a chemical peel?
For decades, patients have been able to rejuvenate tehri skin with the use of chemical peels. Chemical peels range in superficial to deep, and can provide subtle or dramatic changes to the skin of the face and body. With chemical peels, our professionals utilize a custom-blend of chemicals to apply to the skin to stimulate skin cell turnover. In mild chemical peels, most patients experience minor redness but are able to continue through the days following in their usual activities. Stronger, more aggressive chemical peels provide the best results in the shortest period of time, though they do require patients to take time off of work and social activities as the skin peels and heals.
What type of chemical peels are available?
Our chemical peels range from mild to deep, and choosing the one right for a patient depends heavily on several factors. Elena Ginsberg of Primary Aesthetic Skin Care consults with patients initially to help decide if they could benefit from this treatment, or if other services in the office are more beneficial. The type of acid used will change the strength and depth, while also changing the final results achieved. Patients who are interested in treating the following conditions may find chemical peels to be appropriate:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Skin texture/tone
- Acne and acne scarring
- Pigmentation concerns (sun spots, freckles, etc.)
