Anti-Aging Q & A

Anti Aging Treatment Staten Island

What are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a dermatological procedure employed to improve the aesthetic appeal of skin on the face, hands, and neck. The application of a chemical solution works to exfoliate a person’s skin and then the affected skin falls away. The skin which is exposed after the treatment will have fewer wrinkles and fine lines as well as a younger-looking appearance. There are three forms of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep.

  • Superficial- these are used to address mild skin discoloration and roughness
  • Medium- these can improve wrinkles, moderate discoloration, fade age spots, and minimize freckles
  • Deep- these peels address dark freckles, shallow scars, age spots, and moderate wrinkles and creases

Deep chemical peels can only be done a single time and will necessitate a much longer recovery period.

What is an IPL Photofacial? 

An IPL, or intense pulsed light, photofacial is used to treat issues of facial redness, uneven skin tone, brown spots, spider veins, and broken capillaries. The treatment employs concentrated pulses of light which focus on skin cells to stimulate a chemical change. The light waves can also be employed to increase collagen production and heal acne. This treatment is non-invasive and very safe. There is very little or no down time required and appointments can be scheduled to accommodate a work and social commitments.
