Acne Peels

At the Skin Center NY, we offer a wide variety of medical-grade chemical peels and facials to help patients to treat a wide variety of issues, the most common of which being acne and acne scars. 

These chemical peels not only help patients to treat acne, but all manner of facial scars, blemishes, discolorations and much more. Regardless of their versatility, they are most effective in the treatment of acne and acne-related issues. Learn more about these chemical peel options below.

The Lactic Acid Peel
One of the most common, medical-grade peels around today, the Lactic Acid peel is a milder treatment, which helps to tighten the skin, while reducing the appearance of superficial blemishes, scars, wrinkles and fine lines. 

A common AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid), the Lactic Acid Peel is derived from milk, meaning there is a small possibility of allergic reactions, therefore it is important to make us aware of any allergies you might have. This is the perfect “first-time” peel for an individual with either oily or dry skin. As well as those with more sensitive skin or darker toned skin.

Benefits of the Lactic Acid Peel

  • Stimulates the production of collagen to fill, plump and soften the skin.
  • Brightens discolorations, hyperpigmentation and sun-damaged skin.
  • Improves acne and minor acne scars.
  • Clears pores of dirt, debris and excess facial oils.
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, minor scars, blemishes, and rosacea. 

Glycolic Acid Peel
A deeper-penetrating alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) peel, that reaches the skin’s inner “action” layer known as the dermis. This allows the acid to stimulate the production of vital skincare proteins known as collagen and elastin – which are depleted by aging. With these compounds the process of cellular turnover is vastly increased, helping to resurface the outer layer of dull, dead skin cells, and replace them with fresh, new youthful skin cells. Removing blemishes, wrinkles, and leaving the skin softer, more supple, and far more elastic.
For those with deeper skin issues and blemishes.

Benefits of the Glycolic Acid Peel

  • Tightens the skin and improves elasticity.
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, minor scars, blemishes and more.
  • Brightens discolorations, hyperpigmentation and sun-damaged skin.
  • Improves acne and minor acne scars.
  • Leaves skin smoother, softer and more supple.

Salicylic Acid Peel
One of the most popular acne treatment methods, salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that penetrates only slightly past the skin’s surface. Salicylic acid is known for its antibacterial properties, and its ability to act as a strong chemical exfoliant – as a result, it is effective at drying active acne, helping to prevent future acne, and other skin issues.

Works great for patients with oily, acne-prone skin, and clogged pores. The acid is known to react with surface oils along the skin, allowing it to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin through the pores.

Benefits of the Salicylic Acid Peel

  • Treats active acne and prevents future breakouts.
  • Reduces the appearance of superficial acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, and more.
  • Unclogs pores of dirt, debris and excess oils.
  • Can treat moderate hyperkeratosis (thickening of the skin – warts and calluses).
  • Treats oily skin & rosacea.
  • Evens out the skin complexion and tone.
  • Brightens minor discolorations, hyperpigmentation and sun-damaged skin.
