What Is A Chemical Peel
Would you like the face you show the world to be smoother, younger-looking and less wrinkled? A chemical peel may be an excellent way for you to get the skin you desire.
Dr. Samuel Beran, one of the leading plastic surgeons in Westchester, is a highly recognized expert at a wide range of chemical peels — skin treatments that reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve your skin’s surface and texture. The result? Smooth, beautiful, rejuvenated skin.
The most frequently used chemical peel solutions contain alpha hydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid or phenol as the peeling agent, depending on the depth of your wrinkles and your skin type. Dr. Beran often advises several light- to medium-depth peels rather than one deeper-peel treatment for similar results, less risk and a shorter recovery time.
Alpha hydroxy acids, derived from foods such as fruits and milk, improve the texture of your skin by removing layers of dead cells on the skin’s surface and revealing the smoother, healthier-looking layer below. After this type of light chemical peel, there is usually little or no recovery time.
Trichloroacetic acid is used for peeling your face, neck, hands and other exposed areas of the body. With less bleaching effect than phenol, trichloroacetic acid is excellent for “spot” peeling of specific areas. It can be used for light, medium or deep peeling, depending on the concentration and method of application.
Phenol is sometimes used for full-face peeling when sun damage or wrinkling is severe. It can also be used to treat limited areas of your face, such as deep wrinkles around your mouth. A “buffered” phenol peel offers yet another option for severely sun-damaged skin and may be a good choice for patients who want a deep peel with a somewhat faster recovery.

How Much Does A Chemical Peel Cost?
Because the texture and appearance of every woman’s facial skin is unique and the results she is seeking from a chemical peel are specific to her, the exact cost of this skin treatment is determined by Dr. Beran after he has met with the patient and together, they have decided what type of procedure will bring her the best possible results.
