Your skin plays an important role in providing a barrier to protect your muscles and internal organs from direct exposure to the outside world. As you age and go through life, minor physical defects can develop throughout the dermal layers.

This can come in the form of acne, acne scars, liver spots, fine lines, freckles, hyperpigmentation, physical scars, and the aftereffects of sun damage. One way to lessen the appearance of these skin defects is to have a chemical peel performed at Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD’s plastic surgery clinic in New Rochelle, New York.

This special dermal treatment uses a specially formulated chemical solution to smooth your skin’s texture. While it is primarily used on the face, a chemical peel can also be used to address minor skin defects on the neck and hands. It can also help with rough or scaly skin on certain parts of the body.

It’s important to note that a chemical peel might not be right for you if you have a personal history of abnormal skin scarring, irregular pigmentation, or warts on your face.

Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD will go over these factors and potential risks during your initial consultation. If a chemical peel is counter indicated, our plastic surgeon can help you understand your alternative treatment options.

If you live in the New Rochelle, New York area and you are struggling to deal with dermal defects on a visible part of your body, you should call 914.235.5171 to schedule a chemical peel consultation.
