As we age, our skin changes. Smoking cigarettes, sun exposure, and other environmental factors can take their toll, causing the skin to become dull, dry, and wrinkled. A chemical peel will help improve the appearance of the skin by removing the damaged outer layers and revealing the fresh, healthy skin underneath. While a chemical peel may sound like a scary procedure, it is a great way to exfoliate the skin and enhance its appearance, texture, and tone. Dr. Dina Strachan and her team at Aglow Dermatology provide this and many other skin services to patients in New York, NY.
What types of chemical peels are available?
There are different varieties of peels available. Your doctor will work with you to choose the best one for your needs. The depth of the chemical peel determines how much improvement you see in your skin. A deeper peel may provide more dramatic results but also includes a higher risk of side effects. Deciding on the chemical peel most appropriate for you starts with a consultation appointment at Aglow Dermatology to assess your skin and make educated recommendations regarding the best treatment option.

How is a chemical peel performed?
A chemical peel is a relatively simple procedure that can be done in your doctor’s office. First, the skin is cleansed. Then a peeling solution will be applied to the area being treated. You might feel a tingling or burning sensation during this part of the process. This solution will remain on your skin for a few minutes before being neutralized and removed. In some cases, the peeling agent is left on the skin for hours.
