Chemical peeling is the general term for chemical solutions that are used to treat various skin problems, including wrinkles and acne blemishes. Peeling is essentially peeling off the top layer of the skin in order to improve the skins complexion. While some peel solutions may be purchased and administered without a prescription, don’t take that risk with your skin. A single solution will not work for everyone. Besides, it is your own skin/face that you are dealing with here. It is instead recommended that you seek guidance from an experienced dermatologist like Dr. Adelle T. Quintana.
Trained in Cutaneous Laser Surgery and Mohs Micrographic Surgery at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, Dr. Quintana will thoroughly assess your skin concerns before giving any recommendation as to the type of chemical peel that is most apt for you. Depending on specific skin issues, she may even suggest laser-based rejuvenation techniques in combination with chemical peels.
So, do you have facial skin problems involving, among other things, fine facial lines, discoloration, or age spots? If yes, then contact Dr. Quintana’s New York Office at (212) 391-8600 or via this Appointment Request Form.
