Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a type of facial that utilizes specialized chemicals to remove outer layers of dead skin and reveal healthier skin underneath. Chemical peels are customized for your skin issues and can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and uneven texture.

Chemical peels are safe for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin, because they’re customizable. They reverse signs of aging so you have fresher, dewier skin that looks and feels more youthful.

How does a chemical peel work?

Nigro Dermatology Group offers a variety of chemical peels that range in strength to suit your needs. Your specialist evaluates your skin and your aesthetic goals to determine which type of chemical peel may be right for you.

At your appointment, your specialist at Nigro Dermatology Group washes your skin and brushes the chemical peel over your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth, like applying a liquid-based face mask. They allow the peel to dry before removing it with water.

While the chemical peel is on your skin, you may feel a tingling or stinging sensation. The chemical peel works by dehydrating the outermost layers of dead skin so they dry out and peel off. Most chemical peels take 3-5 days to see full results.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

You can see a noticeable reduction or elimination of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, acne, and dry or oily skin after your peel.* By removing the outer layers of dead skin, chemical peels exfoliate and improve the tone, texture, and color of your skin.

Chemical peels also stimulate cellular turnover, which improves the overall health and appearance of your skin. Cellular turnover increases blood flow, creating a more youthful glow.

Are there other exfoliation treatments?

If a chemical peel isn’t quite right for you, microdermabrasion offers skin-revitalizing benefits using a different method of exfoliation. The process of microdermabrasion involves the manual removal of dead skin cells and the uppermost layer of skin with a handheld device.

Microdermabrasion also encourages healthy blood flow and stimulates cell turnover, leaving you with a fresher, brighter complexion.

A chemical peel or microdermabrasion may be the answer to your skin issues. Call Nigro Dermatology Group or request a consultation online to learn more.
