Chemical Peel

Welcome to Nuderm Aesthetics, an innovative skincare clinic in New Hyde Park, NY. Our clinic is dedicated to offering modern therapies, including pigment removal and melasma correction, under medical supervision.

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels improve the face, neck, and hand skin. A chemical solution exfoliates and peels the skin. The regenerated skin is smoother and less wrinkled. However, fresh skin is momentarily more sun-sensitive. Three main chemical peels exist:

Benefits of Chemical Peel

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Fading of sun damage and age spots
  • Treatment of acne scars (depending on the peel depth)

Safety Precautions after having a chemical peel?

All peels require some follow-up care: The healing time for superficial peels is 1-7 days. Skin treated may be red and scale. You should apply lotion or cream until your skin heals, then sunblock daily. Most makeup can be worn the next day.

Healing takes 7-14 days for medium peels. The treated skin will be red and inflamed. Initial swelling worsens for 48 hours. Swelling of eyelids may occur. Blisters can break out. The skin crusts and peels in 7-14 days.  You should soak your skin every day for a certain time before applying ointment. Antiviral treatment can be needed for 10–14 days in case of break-outs. Apply mild lotion or cream. Avoid sunlight until recovery is complete. Camouflage makeup is allowed after 5–7 days. A follow-up appointment is needed to track progress.

 Healing takes 14–21 days for deep peels. The area treated will be bandaged post-treatment. Soak skin four to six times a day and apply ointment for 14 days. Then a heavy moisturizer is administered for 14 days. Antiviral treatment can be needed for 10–14 days. Apply mild lotion or cream. Stay out of the sun for 3–6 months. Camouflage makeup is allowed after 14 days. Multiple follow-up appointments are needed to track improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

A chemical peel can cause mild discomfort, such as a tingling or burning sensation. The intensity depends on the peel’s strength. Deeper peels might require local anesthesia.

Chemical peels exfoliate the top skin layers, promoting cell turnover and revealing smoother, brighter skin. They can reduce fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.

  • Superficial Peels: Mild, using alpha or beta hydroxy acids, ideal for light exfoliation.
  • Medium Peels: Using trichloroacetic acid (TCA), targeting deeper layers for moderate wrinkles and pigmentation.
  • Deep Peels: Using phenol, for severe wrinkles and deeper scars, with more significant downtime.

Treatment Process

A chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new skin underneath is typically smoother and less wrinkled.
