Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel Specialist NYCThe minutia of aging doesn’t have to detract from the youthfulness you feel inside. You have options in Manhattan with the top aesthetic specialists at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness. As you get older, you may start worrying about the various signs of aging you notice. Wrinkles, discoloration, spots or dull skin seem to loom large as you apply your daily makeup.

One of the most popular options for skin rejuvenation in New York City is a chemical peel that offers a simple method of peeling away the signs of aging from your face, revealing a revitalized new you. Chemical peels are an ancient beauty remedy, believed to originate in the ancient Egyptian days by the beautiful Cleopatra. Chemical peels brighten, smooth and even your skin tone. And you can use chemical peels for other areas that commonly show aging such as your neck, hands and chest.

The Benefits of Chemical Peel

The benefits of chemical peels often amaze and surprise people. There are a number of undesirable facial flaws that chemical peels are designed to treat. The certified health practitioners at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness in New York City use chemical peels to treat a number of skin conditions such as:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Light sagging
  • Freckles
  • Rough skin
  • Melasma
  • Discoloration
  • Dull complexion
  • Acne and Acne scars

Chemical peels reduce these signs and allow you to show your inner youth outwardly. Experienced Aesthetic Professionals at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness help you select the kind of chemical peels that are right for you and that complement the entire holistic plan created to make you look your best.

In general, chemical peels are considered light or superficial, medium or deep, depending on the strength of the acid being used. Your aesthetic specialist recommends either salicylic and glycolic peels depending on the focus of your treatment; both of these chemical peels are considered light or medium.

What to Expect During Chemical Peels

  • Light Chemical Peel. Light chemical peels are done in the Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness office. You don’t typically need painkillers or sedatives during or after your procedure. During your light chemical peel:
  1. Your aesthetic specialist cleans your face and protects your eyes and hair.
  2. She then brushes your face with the chemical peel solution.
  3. You’ll feel a mild burning or stinging for a few minutes.
  4. Then your doctor applies a neutralizing solution to remove the chemical peel from your skin.
  5. You can expect your skin to be slightly irritated, red, and dry.
  • Medium Chemical Peel. Medium chemical peels are done in Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness office as well. Your doctor may prescribe mild painkillers or you might prefer an over-the-counter option. During your medium chemical peel:
  1. Your doctor cleans your face and protects your eyes and hair.
  2. She then uses a cotton applicator to brush your face with the chemical peel solution.
  3. Your skin begins to turn white after a few minutes.
  4. Next, cold compresses are used to cool your skin, but no neutralizing agent is needed.
  5. You can expect to feel burning or stinging for about 20 minutes and your skin will feel tight, swollen, and appear red and irritated for a few days.

Salicylic Acid Peel

Salicylic acid is found naturally in the bark of willow trees and has been used in medicine for more than 2,500 years. As a rule of thumb, salicylic acid chemical peels are great for treating acne scars. It’s a fairly mild acid that’s effective against rough skin, acne scars and discoloration.

Salicylic acid promotes the sloughing of dead skin cells on the top layer of skin. The acid also breaks down the lipids or oils on the skin so it has a cleansing effect as well as a burning effect. Salicylic acid is a common ingredient in over-the-counter acne medications and treatments.

Salicylic peels should be done under the supervision of or by your aesthetic specialist when it’s used in high concentrations. Salicylic peels are effective treatments and are often used in combination with other skin rejuvenating treatments that give you back your youthful glow. The health practitioners at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness work with you to create a comprehensive plan that helps you achieve a greater sense of harmony in your mind, body and soul.

Glycolic Acid Peel

Glycolic acid is derived from the sugars in cane and fruit and has been used in medicine for thousands of years. Glycolic peels are frequently used to reduce visible wrinkles and uneven skin tone, but sometimes can relieve the impressions left by acne scars.

These peels are also excellent at smoothing rough skin and brightening tone overall. Because glycolic acid molecules are small enough to penetrate the cell walls of the skin, it’s one of the more effective chemical peels. The acid enters the cell and promotes the formation of collagen — the structural protein in skin that gives it a youthful appearance. And glycolic acid plumps up cells, reducing overall wrinkles.

Patients who have glycolic peels are usually amazed at their results. Your skin appears brighter and more youthful — reflecting your inward beauty. Glycolic peels are often used in combination with other aesthetic treatments. Dr. Natalya Fazylova works to combine integrative techniques with glycolic peels to achieve results that make you more comfortable in your own skin.

Results You’ll Love

Chemical peels have been around for thousands of years because people love the results they provide. And today, they are safer and better than ever. After your chemical peel, you’ll notice better skin texture, improved tone, fewer wrinkles and smoother skin. It’s important to stay completely out of the sun while your skin heals for best results.
