Why Your Skin Needs a Chemical Peel

You may not know it, but your complexion could probably benefit from a chemical peel. If your skin has sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, or is just looking a little lackluster and dull, you could use a chemical peel. A chemical peel is when a dermatologist or physician's assistant applies a chemical peeling agent to the skin and leaves it on for an amount of time, depending on skin issues and type. The chemical agent then peels off the top layer of skin and stimulates the production of collagen underneath. The chemical peeling agent we use at Schweiger Dermatology in New York include Jessner's Peel (a solution combining resorcinol, lactic acid and salicylic acid to treat acne and the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation associated with acne scars), Glycolic Acid (for acne and pigmentation issues) and Salicylic Acid (extremely effective in treating acne). All of the chemical peeling contain AHAs, which are key ingredients when it comes to enhancing and perfecting the complexion.
