Combine the effects of time with sun exposure, and you see facial wrinkles, rough skin texture, pigmented spots and more. At Long Island skinMedical & Cosmetic Dermatology, your Plainview-area dermatologists, Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven, offer chemical peels which brighten and smooth your facial features, allowing you to feel and look refreshed.


What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels involve the in-office application of biologically safe acid preparations to areas of the face, neck, and hands which exhibit signs of aging and sun exposure. By actually removing layers of skin, these popular procedures uncover a fresher, less lined facial appearance.

Lasting for several months, the effects of chemical peels are more than physical. Those who choose these treatments, with the advice of their Plainview area dermatologist, of course, experience greater self-confidence and happier outlooks, both personally and professionally.


How do chemical peels work?

Dr. Sherer or Dr. Coven will perform a thorough skin examination and medical history review before recommending any aesthetic procedure at Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology. If a chemical peel is right for your facial landscape, you'll experience a comfortable treatment which exfoliates everything from light scarring and sun spots to fine lines.

Depending on your specific need and preference, your dermatologist may perform one of three procedures:

  1. Superficial
  2. Moderate
  3. Deep

The superficial peel is also called a "lunchtime" peel, for it causes no downtime whatsoever. This superficial peel uses a mild alpha-hydroxy acid to smooth lines and reduce dark areas on the chest, neck, hands, and face.

The moderate to deep peels use more potent acids (glycolic and trichloroacetic acid) and as such, take more time to heal. They address more obvious skin issues such as precancerous growths, deeper lines, and darker spots. Deep peels may not be repeated.



When your skin has fully healed after a chemical peel, you'll see a younger and brighter appearance to the treated areas of your skin. You should avoid excessive sun exposure and continue to moisturize your skin. Ask your dermatologist for a recommendation on the product that is right for you!

Find out how a simple chemical peel can improve the appearance of your skin!

Whether you just want to refresh your appearance or you want to target fine lines, enlarged pores, and other imperfections, our Syosset great skinarea dermatologists, Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven, have many options to make sure that you get the results you want. Many people are turning to chemical peels to help reveal fresh and younger-looking skin. Here’s what a chemical peel can do for you!


What is a chemical peel?

It’s important to understand what happens during this treatment to understand if it’s right for you. This deep exfoliation treatment uses a special solution that is applied directly to the skin so as to remove the outermost layer, which contains bacteria and dead skin cells.

Treatment can take around 30 minutes, after which peeling can last up to five days. As the most damaged outer layer of the skin peels away, you will see healthier and more radiant skin be revealed.


What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

There are many reasons why adults are turning to a simple chemical peel in Syosset, NY, to improve the overall look and appearance of their skin. Some benefits of this treatment include,

  • Improving the overall tone, texture, and color of your skin
  • Stimulating the production of collagen, which keeps skin tight and firm
  • Reducing or even eliminating sunspots and sun damage
  • Treating acne breakouts
  • Smoothing away lines and wrinkles
  • Boosting hydration
  • Reducing the appearance of superficial scars and other imperfections
  • Removing dry skin and dead skin cells to make skincare products more effective

While many people will achieve beautiful results after just one session, if you are looking to maintain your results for the long term, then you may want to talk about undergoing several chemical peel sessions. The benefit of getting more than one chemical peel is that this special solution can then penetrate to deeper layers of the skin for even better results!
