Chemical peels are used to eradicate the superficial dead layers of skin, allowing fresh, new, firm skin to replace it. Science & Beauty offers chemical peel treatments in the greater New York City area. The end result is a softer, smoother, revitalized appearance and a reduction in wrinkles. Depending on the amount of damaged skin and the desired result, clients can choose from three different peel strengths – superficial, medium, or deep. Because of the nature of the interaction between the chemicals and the skin, chemical peels should only be administered by a well-trained esthetician, dermatologist or plastic surgeon. These trained professionals can safely guide you through the chemical peel process and aftercare regimen.
Anyone suffering from facial skin problems caused by sun damage, pitting or scarring, fine lines around the mouth or eyes, age spots or pigmentation irregularities can benefit from a chemical peel.
The benefits of Chemical Peels include:
All Chemical Peels should be administered by a highly-trained esthetician, dermatologist or plastic surgeon. For superficial peels, the client may experience a slight tingling during the application process, but should be able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Medium-depth chemical peels penetrate deeper into the skin and cause the skin to visibly peel away after treatment, a process that can take up to a week. For clients requiring a deep peel, anesthesia is generally required, and a longer recovery time should be expected.
The cost for a chemical peel in NYC may vary based on the expertise and qualifications of the specialist performing the treatment, type of chemical peel performed, time and effort the procedure or treatment requires as well as the location of the office. Average price for a chemical peel procedure in NYC averages between $500 to $800 per treatment.
Most chemical peels take as little as 30 minutes to perform in our NYC clinic, however some can take up to an hour.
Most chemical peels cause minor redness, peeling and itching; however, blistering is not uncommon when treating stubborn age spots, sun spots, and severe acne. Our skin specialist will let you know exactly what to expect from your chemical peel treatment after your initial consultation.
Most chemical peels don’t require recovery time for most of the patients; however the redness and peeling may make you feel uncomfortable which may make you want to stay inside your house for one or two days until the redness goes away. We also recommend our NYC patients to get chemical peels on a Friday so that they have the weekend to recover.
