Medical Peels :: Park Avenue Medical Spa - Westchester


The best way to describe the main benefit of a peel is, stimulate.

Peels stimulate a number of reactions by exfoliating the superficial layers of the epidermis. This in turn has consequences on fibroblastic synthesis and angiogenesis, which take place in the papillary dermis and renew and revive the skin. A peel can also directly penetrate and act on the dermis which is a unique property of peels.

The benefits of peels were first noticed years ago by Egyptian women who noticed that the byproducts of grapes improved their skin, due to their tartric acid. They also noticed that milk baths made their skin softer, because of its lactic acid. In the Antilles Islands, women noticed that the use of products obtained from sugar cane made their skin softer, which was a result of the glycolic acid found in the sugar.

Today, years of research have created an arsenal of peels, from those which act superficially to those which are deeply penetrating, which treat a number of conditions, with little to no downtime.

The superficial peels are: glycolic acid peels, lactic acid peels, salicylic acid peels, kojic acid and TCA of low concentration. These peels will cause no or minimal exfoliation and will improve the texture, brighten the complexion, hydrate, and decrease fine lines in the skin. These treatments will restore the equilibrium between different cell types.

The intermediate peels are primarily the TCA peels. These peels will improve deeper wrinkles, eliminate actinc keratotic lesions which are precancerous lesions, and improve the skin’s overall tone. These peels will repair the skin and revive all of the skin’s functions.

The deep peels like TCA 40% and phenol peels cause a dramatic result by practically liquefying the epidermis and strongly stimulating the dermis. The skin becomes very smooth, and lines are completely eliminated.

The Medical Needling reduces scarring and improves elasticity and thickness of the skin by stimulating the body’s own repair response, including the production of natural collagen and important growth factors. This treatment is based on a revolutionary approach to anti-aging through natural processes. The process facilitates and stimulates the skin’s natural repair and growth processes without causing any scarring or permanent damage. The primary function of this treatment is to cause microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface of the skin. As a response, platelets are released. A course of treatments (generally a minimum series of six), can typically result in the following: acne and minor scarring are reduced, fine lines and wrinkles are softened, the skin is naturally thickened, tightened, and elasticity is restored. Pigmentation marks are lightened, stretch marks are improved and the disappearance of dilated blood vessels is encouraged. Advantages: The healing period is minimal, and the process is suited for all skin types (including laser- resurfaced skin). No scarring is induced. It can be safely repeated for maximum results. No additional sun-sensitivity is induced. All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated.

Age Management/Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HTR) is a common treatment for women going through menopause or experiencing the symptoms associated with menopause. Slowed metabolism, hot flashes, mood swings, memory loss, low libido and aging are all reasons a doctor may prescribe hormone replacement therapy. A more natural method of treatment, called bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), is becoming increasingly popular among doctors and patients alike.

Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are made to have the identical molecular structure of the hormones made by your own body, so your body can metabolize them as it was designed to do, minimizing side effects. Additionally, as opposed to the general, mass-produced synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are individually matched to each woman’s specific hormonal needs.  Synthetic hormones can cause serious side effects and are only available as a generic hormone replacement.

Although bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not FDA approved, many of the hormones used have been individually approved.  This treatment has been used in clinical trials for over 20 years and is considered a generally safe procedure that offers women more specialized, effective treatment for their troubling menopause symptoms.
