What Are Facial Peels?

Facial peels rejuvenate your skin by removing thin layers of damaged skin that causes lines, wrinkles, discoloration and other types of skin problems.  After your facial peel, your body generates new skin that is free of abnormalities and flaws.

How Does A Facial Peel Work?

A facial peel works by destroying layers of damaged skin, allowing new skin to grow in its place.  Facial peels are performed at three levels — light, medium and deep, and the level of facial peel determines how deeply the chemicals destroy the damaged skin.

What Can Be Treated With A Facial Peel?

Light facial peels remove only the smallest amount of skin and are excellent for general exfoliation, fine lines, dryness, acne and uneven skin color.  Medium facial peels treat sun damage, pigmentation and wrinkles, and deep facial peels, the most extensive type of facial peel, treats extensive sun damage, scars and deep wrinkles.

How Is The Facial Peel Procedure Performed?

Dr. Goldberg may recommend a light, medium or deep facial peel, depending on the type and extent of damage to your skin.  A special chemical solution is applied to your skin and allowed to penetrate the layers.  The type of chemicals and time for the treatment depends on the level of facial peel.  After the chemicals have remained on your skin for a specific amount of time, a neutralizing solution is applied, and your skin is cleansed.

Is The Procedure Painful?

For a light facial peel, you may experience some tingling during the procedure.  With a medium peel, you may have slightly more discomfort, including burning and stinging.  Due to the extent of treatment with a deep facial peel, you may experience discomfort during the procedure.  Dr. Goldberg may recommend a sedative for a deep facial peel.

When Will I See Results?

The timeline for results depends on the type of facial peel that you have.  You will see results immediately after a light facial peel because there is little to no recovery time.  Your skin feels smoother and looks more vibrant right away.  The medium facial peel takes up to a week to heal, and the deep facial peel takes up to three weeks.

How Long Do The Results Last?

Facial peels offer long-lasting results if you care for your skin, especially when outdoors.  The more mild light facial peels can be repeated to maintain the overall health of your skin.

Can Facial Peels Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Dr. Goldberg may recommend facial peels to be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic dermatology procedures to give you the best possible outcomes.

The Medical Glycolic Peel

Glycolic acid is an effective treatment for correcting the skin damage caused by aging, sun exposure, scarring and acne. Medical grade glycolic peels use a higher concentration of glycolic acid, typically ranging from 30% to 70%, to address various skin conditions. Your specific regimen is determined during your consultation appointment.  Based on your skin type and cosmetic goals, your physician determines the type of medical grade glycolic peel that is needed.  The medical grade glycolic peel solution is applied to your skin and remains on your skin for a certain amount of time.  This allows the solution to penetrate your skin.  You see results after your first treatment, but additional treatments may be needed for best results.  Typically, patients receive three to six treatments every two to three weeks. The medical grade glycolic peel process takes about 15-20 minutes. Although the results are usually not permanent, maintained improvement can be accomplished by periodic re-treatments.
