A chemical peel is a customized treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to the face, neck, hands, or other area where the skin is showing the signs of damage such as fine lines, wrinkles, or pigment changes. The chemical solution causes the upper layer of skin to exfoliate and peel away, revealing fresh, youthful, more supple skin beneath.
When considering a chemical peel, you want to ensure that your treatment is performed by a highly-skilled medical professional, as your skin is unique to you. The right formula must be applied to your skin, based upon your skin type, goals of the treatment, and medical history. You can be confident that Dr. Smith will fully evaluate your skin condition to select the most effective chemical peel solution – for you.

If you are considering a chemical peel, the first step is a full evaluation of your skin type, and the problems you want to address. Once the correct formula for you is chosen, the treatment can begin. The experience should be relaxing and comfortable, and Dr. Darren Smith is committed to providing a superior patient experience at his private, luxury practice in Manhattan. The process goes through the following steps:
For a light peel, your skin should look and feel healthy and glowing within a few hours to a few days depending on the specifics of the procedure. For a medium chemical peel, plan on a week, with more time before the pinkness or redness fully disappears. For a deep chemical peel, you will require longer, and must keep your skin protected from the sun’s rays. Plan on taking a week or two off from important social engagements if you have had a more extensive chemical peel.
Dr. Darren Smith is among the most acclaimed board-certified plastic surgeons in the country. His qualifications are truly extraordinary, and you can trust in his meticulous approach to skin rejuvenation with chemical peels.
