Chemical Peels for The Southern Tier of New York
What Is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are procedures that apply a chemical solution to your skin to remove the dead or blemished top layers. This exfoliation of the upper layer reveals healthier, younger-looking skin beneath it. Most of the blemishes on your skin are, quite literally, skin deep — only the highest layer of skin receives most skin damage, including acne, sun damage, and some signs of aging such as wrinkles.

Chemical Peel Frequently Asked Questions
How long do the effects of chemical peels last?
Your results depend on a variety of factors, including how deep of peel you received, what area was treated, and how many treatments were needed. This means results can last anywhere from a month or so to multiple years. We can give you a better idea of what to expect during your consultation.
When will I see results?
Generally, results will be visible within 10 days of treatment, and sometimes sooner depending on how deep of a peel is performed.
Are some chemical peels better than others?
Not necessarily. Some peels we offer work better for certain areas or situations than other treatments, and our team will help identify the treatment best for your needs during a consultation. That said, we do find that the SkinCeuticals® chemical peels we use are often a great fit for our patients because it’s a research-backed serum and highly customizable treatment that offers fantastic results!
Can I get a chemical face peel the day before a big event?
A chemical peel will temporarily leave your skin red, tight, irritated, or swollen, no matter what depth the peel is. A light peel can fully heal after one to seven days; a deep chemical peel may require up to two weeks for full healing, but redness can last for months. Please plan social events accordingly.
Do chemical peels hurt?
Depending on the strength and treatment area selected, the sensation levels of chemical peels can range from a slight tingle to a stinging. Most people have no issues tolerating the treatment, but we always have the ability to neutralize and remove the chemicals if you wish.
How do chemical peels treat and improve skin?
The vast majority of skin damage is limited to the outermost layers of the skin. A chemical peel is effective at revealing the healthier, unblemished skin underneath those upper layers, because they effectively exfoliate flawed, abnormal parts of that surface skin.
Does it really matter who provides my chemical peel?
Chemical peels are a completely safe procedure, but it’s still important to have them performed by a trusted expert. Getting a chemical peel can be a rejuvenating experience for your skin, but only if it’s performed by experts like ours at Sambursky Eye and Esthetics, who know how to deliver natural and youthful-looking results with minimal discomfort.
