What is a Chemical Peel?

Are you considering a chemical peel treatment and would like to know what it entails? Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as his aesthetician, Natalie, discusses the process of a chemical peel procedure.

So a chemical peel is a chemical exfoliation that happens underneath the skin’s surface. It will help to stimulate the cellular turnover, helps to stimulate collagen. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help with pigmentation. It’s just a different way to get the skin cells to turn over versus any of our other procedures that we do, such as microneedling and laser. So if you think a chemical peel may be right for you, please give our office a call.
