Welcome to Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery for a chemical peel in NYC on Park Avenue.

This skin rejuvenating treatment restores your skin from within through gentle, controlled removal of the outermost skin layer to reveal new, beautiful skin beneath.

A Gentle Alternative to Physical Exfoliation

Chemical peels have been used for many decades to restore smoother, more youthful skin without the harshness of physical exfoliation (a technique that can cause micro-tears).

A chemical peel is a controlled manner of stripping away the dead outer layer (epidermis) of the skin. This process stimulates re-growth within the deeper layer of the skin, bringing newer, more youthful skin to the surface.

How it Works



Recovery & Downtime

You may prefer a consultation with a skin professional at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery before your first NYC chemical peel. During your consultation, we will examine your skin and help you determine if a chemical peel is right for you.

We base this decision on your skin’s condition, your skin goals, and your expectations for the treatment. For deeper, more aggressive peels, we may have to prepare your skin with topicals 4 to 6 weeks prior to the treatment for optimal results.

A chemical peel in NYC at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery is a relatively quick procedure at 15 minutes.

This is because the technique is a controlled manner of removing the outer layer of the skin. Your provider will ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.

Your recovery period depends on the type of chemical peel we apply. The lighter chemical peel has little to no recovery time, while the deep peel will have the most.

This can range from 3 to 4 days. Deeper peels can take 7 days for full recovery. You should avoid sun exposure with all chemical peels.

Whether you’re treating skin dullness or signs of aging, your chemical peel results will have your skin looking and feeling renewed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical Peels

How long do I have to stay out of the sun after a chemical peel?

It’s important to stay out of the sun following your chemical peel in NYC. The length of time depends on the strength of the chemical peel. Your provider will give you more information for how long to avoid sun exposure after your treatment.

How long does a chemical peel last?

A chemical peel lasts for 1 month. This is because of the natural regeneration process of your skin. We recommend ongoing maintenance for chemical peels to ensure the best, most lasting results.

Will I need more than one chemical peel?

With lighter skin rejuvenation procedures, to get much smoother skin treatments may need to be repeated. This is especially true with lighter treatments such as the weekend peel.
