As you age, the skin on your face changes and reflects the damage caused over many years. Sun exposure, lost collagen and small scars all impact the appearance of your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles appear on thin skin. While you cannot stop aging, you can slow it down and rejuvenate your skin cells. At City Facial Plastics in New York City, we offer a variety of chemical peels that fight the signs of aging, helping your skin look years younger.

Chemical peeling is a non-surgical facial treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face or neck. The type of chemical peel is individualized for your skin type and lifestyle. They are used to rejuvenate your skin by reducing fine wrinkles/lines, blotchy skin and superficial acne and acne scarring. Chemical peels remove the outer layers of the skin to reveal new skin underneath. These applications produce a controlled wound, enabling new, refreshed skin to appear. Many different types of peels exist. Our skin expert at City Facial Plastics will tailor your peel to fit your needs. Chemical peeling is a nice alternative to laser skin resurfacing.

Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?

Men and women both benefit from chemical peel facial treatments if they are beginning to notice aging of their skin. Discolorations, uneven skin tone, dullness and a crepey appearance can be minimized with chemical peels. The procedure takes less than an hour and helps to flake away old skin cells. New skin cells appear and collagen in the skin increases, helping to improve elasticity and tone.

There are different levels of chemical peels available that impact the skin in different ways. Some light chemical peels require no downtime, just a little redness after the procedure. Other peels that work on deeper layers of the dermis can result in redness and flaking for a few days. We will let you know what to expect from your facial chemical peel to help you plan your activities.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
