What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

About Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be conducted on the skin of the hands, neck, face, or chest and can help with several visible skin concerns, including sun damage, aging, and acne scarring. As a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that is easily customized to suit each individual’s needs, chemical peels are popular with both men and women of all ages looking to improve the health and visible appearance of their skin. 

Chemical peels get their name from their composition because they contain a combination of non-toxic acid ingredients such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which is used to clear away dead skin cells. Despite having the word ‘chemical’ in their name, chemical peels have been carefully formulated to remove only the very top layers of skin to promote cell growth and rejuvenation from beneath

Types of Chemical Peel Treatments

Here at Manhattan Aesthetics, we offer a large variety of chemical peels that are specially formulated to suit your individual needs. Your medically trained practitioner will help determine which type of peel is right for you during your initial consultation. 

VI Peel 

The VI Peel is one of the most popular types of chemical peel and is designed to treat hyperpigmentation. After just one application, patients can expect to see brighter, clearer, and more even-toned skin, though it is advised that they follow up with additional sessions for best results. 

Alpha-hydroxy Acid (AHA Peel)

AHA peels are formulated to tackle dry and rough skin and improve the skin’s texture.  

Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA Peel)

For those concerned with fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, or hyperpigmentation, a TCA peel can even out the skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and imperfections. 

Phenol Peel 

And finally, for those with skin discoloration from sun damage, aging, or birth control pills, a Phenol peel can help to restore skin to its natural color.

Benefits of Chemical Peel Treatments

Chemical peel treatments can benefit a wide range of skin complaints including, hyperpigmentation, skin discoloration, blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and acne scarring. Slowly resurfacing the skin one layer at a time, chemical peels remove dead skin, trigger the body’s natural healing response, boost collagen, and improve skin tone and texture.

Am I a Candidate for Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are generally safe for most people because they can be customized at different strengths to suit the skin sensitivity of the individuals’ skin. Most chemical peels are also administered over several treatments, which means that they can be stopped if irritation occurs. Some people that chemical peels may not be suitable for include those with large skin sags, or severe wrinkles as these conditions tend not to respond well to chemical treatment. Here at Manhattan Aesthetics, at your initial consultation, a member of our highly trained medical staff will conduct a thorough assessment of your skin to ensure that you are the right candidate for a chemical peel procedure. They will then discuss the different treatment options available to you and talk to you through the aftercare process. If, for whatever reason, your skin is not suitable for a chemical peel, then they will also be able to suggest some other non-invasive procedures to help solve your skin concern.
