About Chemical Peels

For the highest quality results from chemical peel aesthetic treatments, Housel Dermatology, P.C. provides you with choices. Your customized chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids) will reveal more radiant skin. At our Liverpool, NY office, board-certified dermatologist Joseph P. Housel, M.D. offers chemical peel treatments that resolve skin flaws, including scars, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels work by removing dead or damaged skin cells through the application of a customized solution to the skin, which causes the top layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical way to make your complexion bright and is appropriate for the face, neck, and décollatage.

Variations of Chemical Peels

In our Liverpool, NY office, we provide chemical peels of different levels (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skin needs.

Light peels: You can receive a light peel on your lunch break and get right back to your routine. This strength of peel will remove the outer layer of skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We usually recommend that you get a light treatment once a month to maintain ideal, glowing results.

Medium-depth peels: This strength of peel penetrates further into the skin, and because of this, patients generally decide to have this level of facial treatment during an extended weekend. You may also prefer to ready yourself for increased discomfort during the peel and for about an hour after. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have deeper damage to their skin, such as deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems.

Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep peel treatment, and it requires the most recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that could leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for several weeks. Patients who receive a deep chemical peel usually have age or dark spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, or other deep scars. Since this strength of chemical peel is typically uncomfortable for patients, your aesthetician will provide you with mild anesthesia prior to your procedure.

Ideal Candidates

Receiving the suggestions of an aesthetic specialist is the first part of the journey to healthier skin. A team member at Housel Dermatology, P.C. will evaluate your skin during a consultation in our Liverpool, NY office before selecting a chemical peel for ideal results. Chemical peel patients typically have visible problems in their skin, like acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, discoloration, sun spots, fine lines, and more. We will recommend multiple types of peels to fit your needs.

Procedure Technique

At your appointment at Housel Dermatology, P.C., you will lie in a comfortable position as we administer your treatment. A team member will ensure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the personalized solution to the treatment areas. We will massage the solution onto the skin and allow it to work for an appropriate length of time that will be determined in your chemical peel consultation. To complete the treatment, we will clean the peel off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients are encouraged to bring sunscreen or a hat to wear outside following the procedure to protect from environmental exposure and sun damage.

What to Expect

Based on the level of the chemical peel you choose, you should expect the face to peel and itch from several days to two or more weeks. Dr. Housel or a member of his team will explain methods to treat your face during your consultation. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the post-treatment process, you should never pick the skin off. If you do, you may cause scarring to your delicate skin!
