Chemical peels are beneficial in the treatment of wrinkles around the eye and mouth, skin
discoloration and age spots, as well as dull skin texture and mild acne scars. The procedure
involved the application of a special chemical solution to remove outer layers of aged,
discolored and irregular skin. Fresh skin is then generated, which is usually smoother, less
wrinkled and more even in color.
At Tribeca Park Dermatology, a host of different agents are used to peel the skin, ranging from 30-70% glycolic acids, 20-30% salicylic acid, Jessner peels, and 20-35% TCA peels. The type of acid, strength of peel, and frequency of treatment is carefully tailored for each individual to work to deliver powerful results but without unexpected or unwanted downtime.
