What Should I Expect from a Chemical Peel?

SERVING MANHATTAN AND NEW YORK CITY

What You can Expect from a Chemical PeelDull, blemished and worn skin can make you feel less confident and attractive. Restore fresher, youthful skin with a chemical peel offered by experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman. This skincare treatment uses various chemical solutions based on the final results for which you and Dr. Pakeman have planned. Chemical peels can address a wide array of skin issues, such as:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots/sun spots
  • Fine lines
  • Certain types of acne
  • Certain types of scars
  • Poor skin texture and overall appearance of the skin

For most people interested in a chemical peel, the peel may be applied to the face, hands and/or the neck. You and Dr. Pakeman will discuss the best treatment approach for your goals and expectations.

Chemical peels work by essentially causing the skin to blister. Old, damaged skin cells peel away, revealing fresher, rejuvenated skin. The peel itself may cause a slight stinging sensation briefly once it is applied. Afterward, you may experience redness, crusting, swelling or other temporary side effects that will diminish in the days following. Depending on the type of peel you choose, your results will be long-lasting.

To find out if a chemical peel may be the right way to rejuvenate your skin, please call Manhattan Surgical Care at 212-308-1566 . Dr. Pakeman serves Manhattan, New York City and all of the surrounding areas.
