Chemical Peels

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a facial treatment that employs specialized chemicals to gently remove outer layers of dead skin, revealing healthier skin beneath.

These peels are tailored to address specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and uneven texture.

Customizable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, chemical peels reverse signs of aging, leaving you with fresher, dewier skin that appears more youthful.

How does a chemical peel work?

Nigro Dermatology Aesthetic Center provides a range of chemical peels of varying strengths to meet individual needs. Your medical aesthetician assesses your skin and aesthetic goals to determine the most suitable type of chemical peel for you.

During your appointment, the aesthetician washes your skin and applies the chemical peel, akin to a liquid face mask, avoiding the eyes and mouth. After allowing it to dry, the peel is removed. While the peel is on your skin, you may experience a tingling or stinging sensation. The chemical peel works by dehydrating the outer layers of dead skin, causing them to dry out and peel off. Most chemical peels yield full results within 3-5 days.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

A chemical peel can visibly reduce or eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, acne, and issues of dry or oily skin. This chemical exfoliation improves the tone, texture, and color of the skin, and rejuvenate your complexion.

Furthermore, chemical peels stimulate cellular turnover, enhancing the overall health and appearance of the skin. Increased blood flow from cellular turnover contributes to a more youthful glow.

Are there alternative exfoliation treatments?

For those seeking an alternative to chemical peels, microdermabrasion provides skin-revitalizing benefits through a concentrated exfoliation method. This process involves manually removing dead skin cells in the uppermost skin layer with a handheld device.

Similar to chemical peels, microdermabrasion encourages healthy blood flow and stimulates cell turnover, resulting in a fresher, brighter complexion.
