Frequently Asked Questions about Chemical Peels in Central New York
What do the peels do?
Our mildest peel, MicroPeel Sensitive, decongests pores, hydrates, and helps improve the overall appearance of skin with a combination of mild exfoliators, including niacin and lactic acid.
MicroPeels 20 and 30 can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness with either a 20- or 30-percent concentration of glycolic acid.
MicroPeels Plus 20 and 30 are suitable for more tolerant skin, containing salicylic acid, a stronger acid, to improve fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, laxity, skin tone, and much more.
The Pigment Balancing Peel features brightening agents to help diminish discoloration caused by acne and photodamage.
Our most intense formula, Advanced Correcting Peel contains a maximized concentration of clinical-strength ingredients to brighten skin and dramatically improve discoloration, smooth texture, diminish pores, and revitalize skin.
Is there any downtime?
Chemical peels are well-tolerated. Downtime depends on the strength of your peel. Our mild peels may cause a temporary pinkness to your skin while affording minimal to no downtime, while our intense peels may incur a few days to a week of redness, flaking, and peeling as healthy, new skin regenerates. During your consultation, we will help you learn exactly what to expect and how to speed your skin’s unique rejuvenation process.
