Natural aging, sun damage, acne, smoking, and a poor diet can leave your complexion looking wrinkled, uneven, scarred, and dry. Chemical skin peels revitalize your skin’s clarity and smoothness, leaving your facial skin looking younger and healthier.
Chemical peels apply a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layer of skin to flake and peel off. This allows healthier skin beneath to shine through.

How Are Chemical Peels Performed?
Kronowitz Plastic Surgery offers non-toxic TCA chemical peels (trichloroacetic acid) at varying strengths. The strength of the peel determines how deep the chemical solution will penetrate and how much the skin will peel.
Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly to remove any dirt and oils. This cleansing allows the solution to penetrate the surface evenly. You may experience some discomfort or a warm sensation while the solution is on the skin, but this temporary. After an allotted time, the solution is removed, and a soothing ointment is applied.
This chemical solution causes the top layers of the skin to dry and peel, reducing sun damage, acne scars, and irregular pigmentation.
Chemical peels range from light (where only the top layer of dead skin is removed) to medium to deep chemical peels. The stronger the peel, the longer you will peel, but the more noticeable your results will be.
What Will My Chemical Peel Recovery Be Like?
Chemical peels offer significant skin improvement with a quick recovery period. Your skin will peel off over several days to one or two weeks, depending on the strength of the peel.
Your complexion may develop a yellow color initially that will become slightly red before it begins to peel.
You may experience some discomfort as your skin peels. This pain can be lessened with over-the-counter pain medication.
When Will I See My Chemical Peel Results?
Once the old, damaged top layer(s) of skin peel off, your chemical peel will reveal a new layer of undamaged skin. This healthy skin will have a smoother, more even texture and color. Your chemical peel results will continue to improve over the following one to two months.
The depth of your chemical peel will influence the quality of your results.
Light chemical peels can be performed in a series, medium depth peels can be performed once or twice a year, and deep chemical peels can be performed only once.
