Chemical Peels

Home » Non-Surgical » Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a popular cosmetic treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. They exfoliate the skin’s outer layers, treating concerns such as wrinkles, acne, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation. Dr. Karan Mehta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan, provides personalized chemical peels to revitalize your skin from the inside out.

Resurface & Revitalize Your Skin

Chemical peels are non-invasive cosmetic procedures designed to resurface and revitalize the skin. During a chemical peel, a solution is applied to the skin, which causes the outer layers to peel off, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath. This exfoliation process reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. Chemical peels can be customized to different depths, from superficial peels for mild skin concerns to deep peels for more significant skin rejuvenation.

Chemical Peels Correct:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Rough and dull skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Certain types of skin discoloration

Candidates for Chemical Peels:

  • Individuals with mild to moderate skin concerns
  • Those seeking skin rejuvenation and improvement in skin texture
  • People with a realistic expectation of the results and a commitment to post-treatment care
  • People without active skin infections or open wounds
  • Those with a desire to improve overall skin tone and complexion

Chemical Peels Treatment Details

During your consultation, Dr. Mehta will carefully assess your skin concerns and discuss your desired outcomes. He will consider factors such as your skin type, sensitivity, and the severity of the condition to determine a suitable chemical peel for you. The appropriate type and strength of the chemical solution will be selected to address your specific needs and goals.

The treatment begins with thoroughly cleansing your skin to remove dirt, oil, or makeup. Our cosmetic provider will apply the chosen solution to your skin in a controlled manner. You may experience a warm or tingling sensation as the solution works. The duration of the treatment will depend on the depth of the peel and the specific peel type being used.
After the desired amount of time, the solution will be neutralized, and your skin will be cleansed again to remove any residue. The provider may apply a soothing cream or serum to calm the skin and minimize discomfort. Finally, you will receive detailed post-treatment instructions to minimize side effects and ensure proper healing and results.

The Recovery Process

Immediately after the session, your skin may appear slightly red and feel tight. This is a normal reaction and should subside within a few hours to a few days. Dr. Mehta may recommend specific skincare products to apply during this healing period. In the following days, you may experience some peeling or flaking of the skin as the old, damaged layers gradually shed off. It’s crucial to avoid picking or pulling at the peeling skin to prevent scarring or complications.

Please protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to prevent further damage. The duration of the recovery process can vary depending on the depth of the peel and individual healing factors. It’s crucial to follow Dr. Mehta’s guidance and attend any recommended follow-up appointments. As the skin continues to heal, you will notice improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance.
