Chemical Peel NYC
A variety of environmental factors can have a negative impact on our skin, such as sun exposure, acne and even the normal aging process. Overtime the effects of these factors can cause the formation of facial fine lines, wrinkles, scars and sun spots to appear on our skin. At E’Lite Medi Spa located in both Huntington, NY and NYC we offer Chemical Peels to effectively remove damaged skin cells and receive a brighter, healthier glow.
What are Chemical Peels?
This personalized treatment is designed to refine facial skin texture damaged by environmental factors, age and acne. Chemical Peels exfoliate your face and stimulates your skin’s natural renewal process; which smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as moderate to severe skin imperfections. You may see noticeable improvement after just one peel and compelling results after three to six peels. As a unique, personalized treatment, chemical peels are available in differencing levels including superficial, medium and deep peels. A superficial peel is ideal for individuals seeking a gentle exfoliation, only penetrating the outermost layer of the skin. A medium peel is effective in penetrating the middle and outer layers of the skin and lastly, a deep peel fully penetrates the middle layer of the skin to effectively remove damaged skin cell.
What do Chemical Peels treat?
At L’Elite Medi Spa our Chemical Peels are safe and effective in treating various skin concerns including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone or redness
What is the procedure like in NYC?
Prior to your appointment date, we advise our patients to refrain from applying any type of retinol or retin-A topical medication for at least 48 hours, avoid waxing, hair bleaching or using depilatory hair removal products the week before treatment and avoid the use of facial scrubs and exfoliates for at least one week before the procedure.
At the start of your treatment, one of our trained aestheticians will begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin and providing you with eye protection. Depending on the peel received, the treated area may be numbed beforehand utilizing a topical anesthetic, in order to provide for a more comfortable procedure. One or more chemical solutions will then be applied to the treated area, causing the skin to exfoliate and peel (dependent on the type of peel received), revealing the new, healthy skin underneath free of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure typically last between 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the peel applied.

Chemical peels are considered exceptionally safe and effective; however, common side effects do occur on the treated skin. These side effects are generally mild in nature and should subside naturally within a few days post-treatment. Such side effects may include:
- Mild burning sensation
- Slight swelling
Due to the different levels of chemical peels available (light, medium and deep) individuals may experience a difference in side effects, such as peeling for the deep peel. Downtime will also be dependent upon which peel was received. Individuals opting for a light peel can expect little to no downtime, while a deep peel may require two to three weeks of recovery time. After receiving a chemical peel, your skin may be temporarily more sensitive to the sun. For this reason, we advise all our clients to apply sunscreen daily and avoid excessive sun exposure.
