Chemical peels have been a staple part of skincare for a long time. However, sticking with what's tried and tested will not always get you the best results - something that Dr. Elena Reitman knows very well. That's why she's brought procedures like the Perfect Peel and the Prodigy Peel for her patients.
Dr. Reitman and her team have plenty of experience with using skin peels to help improve skin, manage wrinkles, and otherwise rejuvenate the face. When you have cosmetic concerns that are too minor for treatments like plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery to address, chemical peels can be the simple yet effective solution to your worries. With the skilled application of a chemical solution, this treatment can help remove damaged skin and even skin discoloration - all without too much trauma to the treated skin.
Dr. Reitman is always willing to explain to her patients the advantages of using chemical peels against the signs of aging. Call Dr. Reitman today to learn more about how chemical peel treatment can work for you.
A chemical peel treatment is a procedure used on your skin to remove the damaged outer layers, revealing newer and younger skin underneath. Depending on the type of peel that's used, you can use it for a wide variety of cosmetic improvements on your skin.
Some of the applications of chemical peels include correcting uneven skin pigmentation, reducing acne scarring, and improving skin texture. Here are some of the benefits your skin will get from going through chemical peels:
As the top layers of your skin are stripped away during a peel, it reveals the younger skin underneath. This younger skin is far more resilient to the daily wear and tear you may experience and can repair itself more efficiently compared to the skin that's already been peeled off.
The newly-exposed skin layer is also free of most blemishes and discoloration, which the peeled skin has gotten over time. Skin peels can easily give your entire face a smoother and more vibrant appearance, especially if you find the right peel for your skin type and skin tone.
Some skin infections can be caused by viruses, bacteria, and other parasites that feed on your dead skin. These germs and foreign bodies can easily cause moderate to severe complications on your skin if left untreated. By using skin peels, you're able to minimize any risk of developing skin conditions caused by old skin remaining on your body.
Relatively non-invasive treatment: While chemical peels can be uncomfortable or somewhat irritating to people with sensitive skin, there are no cuts or incisions required like the ones for plastic and cosmetic surgery.
The ideal peel to let your skin shine
The Perfect Peel is a medium peel that penetrates a good way into your skin, resurfacing the treated area and removing most signs of skin blemishes. Medium peels particularly excel at managing acne scars, since their footprint is located a little underneath the surface of your skin.
What makes the Perfect Peel stand out compared to other dermal fillers is that it's the only one that features glutathione. Glutathione is commonly used in skin brightening products to give your skin extra vibrancy - so combining it with the capabilities of a chemical peel can give you even better results.
Peel and feel great on demand
The Prodigy Peel is a light peel that's more suitable for correcting skin discoloration and rejuvenating the skin. Light peels don't penetrate the skin as deep as medium peels can, but the benefit is that you can get them more frequently to ensure that you have better skin. They also don't take as much post-procedure aftercare compared to more intense peels.
One reason to use the Prodigy Peel is it's formulated for use on anyone, regardless of skin type and skin tone. Compared to other brands of chemical peels which are suited for certain skin types, Prodigy Peel is a general-use product that anyone can enjoy.
Chemical peels are extremely accessible for many patients, but they can work for some people better than others. Here's how you can ensure that you'll be in the best state possible for a successful chemical peel treatment:
Dr. Elena Reitman is an Ivy-league educated anesthesiologist, but more importantly, she understands the intricacies of correct chemical peel application. Chemical peels need to be done with the utmost precision to both get the patient the results they want and avoid any serious side effects. Here are other reasons why you should get your chemical peels with us:
A: As a rule, a light chemical peel usually needs more applications compared to a medium chemical peel or a deep chemical peel. This is because these deeper peels reach deeper into the skin, which means your skin needs more time to recover. Light peels can typically be repeated as many times as needed until you get results.
A: Some chemical peels can have immediately visible results, but most of your results will show themselves when your skin has fully peeled from the chemical solution. On average, you can expect to see the full results of your peel 1 to 2 weeks after your procedure.
A: At-home chemical peels and their assorted kits are available - but keep in mind that the best option for chemical peels is still in a professional setting. This is especially crucial for stronger peels like a medium chemical peel or a deep peel since they need expert oversight during and after the procedure.
A: The "best" peel you can get is a peel that can address your specific cosmetic concerns. This is something best discussed with your peel provider since they can recommend the best type of peel to suit the outcome you're looking for.
A: Chemical peels are considered cosmetic treatments, so they're unlikely to be fully covered by your insurance. However, some plans may reimburse your initial consultation if it's within the term of your plan. For more deals, consult your peel provider.
