All Things Chemical Peels
There are so many different types of facial scrubs, masks, and other treatments to help refresh and rejuvenate the skin, and it is likely that you’ve tried all of the drug store brands and high-end makeup store solutions. But sometimes, your face just needs some professional attention to look and feel new.
What Is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a facial treatment (it can also be performed on the neck and hands) that removes the top layer of skin to reveal a new, fresh layer of smoother, more supple skin. These peels can treat wrinkles, scars, and discoloration. After the treatment, your skin will be red and feel irritated; however, the depth of the chemical peel determines the healing time and the amount of treatments needed to achieve your ideal look.
What Are My Options?
At Park Avenue Medical Spa, we offer three different depths of chemical peels. Before undergoing your treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Tchelebi to determine which chemical peel depth is best for your skin and your desired results.
- Superficial/Light Peel: This type of peel causes minimal exfoliation and brightens, hydrates, and evens out your complexion while also reducing some fine lines.
Intermediate Peel: This peel improves deeper wrinkles, lesions, and skin tone. It removes cells from the epidermis and parts of the dermis.
Deep Peel: Deep peels, like a TCA peel, can be performed on precancerous growths and deep wrinkles. This peel goes deep into the dermis to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.

Am I a Candidate?
Candidates for chemical peels vary, depending on the amount of treatment needed. If you are just wanting a light, relaxing scrub, then a chemical peel may not be the option for you. But if you want to rejuvenate and refresh your skin to eliminate and lessen signs of aging, scars, or potentially cancerous growths, then it is recommended that you schedule an appointment with Dr. Tchelebi to discuss your needs.
