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.

 

Afterward...

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!
