Chemical Peels

Beta Peel | Glycolic Peel Scarsdale NY | Mount Kisco NYChemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes  to produce healthy, glowing skin. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel appears softer, less wrinkled and with improved texture. It is one of the oldest skin-resurfacing techniques used by dermatologists. A chemical peel may also be combined with laser resurfacing, dermabrasion or soft-tissue fillers to achieve the individual needs of the patient.

Beta Peel

With its powerful combination of AHAs and BHAs, the Beta Peel is right for anyone with multiple skin issues. This comprehensive dual peel contains salicylic acid, to halt sebum production, clear pores and stop acne breakouts. Glycolic acid joins in to speed cell turnover for firmer, brighter, healthier skin. Together, these two chemical peeling agents lift away sun-damaged cells to even skin tone and dissipate fine lines and wrinkles.

Glycolic Peel

The mildest form of chemical peels, glycolic peels gently exfoliate the surface layer of skin to expose the fresher, younger-looking skin beneath. They are ideal for roughness, dryness and sun damage. Treatments take only 10-15 minutes. Results are visible immediately, although repeated treatments are recommended for best results.

TCA Peels

TCA peels are medium-depth peels that treat fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCAs are the preferred chemical solution for darker-skinned patients and may be used on the neck and other areas of the body. Multiple treatments may be required. Treatments only last 10-15 minutes, and recovery time is fairly short.

VI Peel™

The VI Peel is an advanced chemical peel that combines unique ingredients to produce significant results with no pain, no skin preparation and minimal downtime. Patients can enjoy smoother, fuller and more vibrant skin after just one 20-minute treatment session, which can be repeated regularly to prolong results. The Vi Peel can be used to effectively treat the skin of the face, chest, hands and more.

Patients may appear slightly tan or red immediately after treatment, and skin will begin to peel after three days. Moisturizer can help patients look their best through the healing process, so that they can continue their daily routine with no worries about their appearance. The results of the Vi Peel will be visible once the peeling process is complete and will improve the tone and texture of the skin for an overall more youthful appearance.
