One of the most effective, affordable and popular ways to turn back the hands of time are chemical peels. With all of the new technologies used today, it can be easy to forget that there are outstanding ways to refresh the skin without lasers or light therapies.

At Ithaca Medical Aesthetics, we offer chemical peels with a variety of ingredients to remove damaged outer layers of skin and rejuvenate the face, neck, décolleté, back and hands. This method of treatment removes the outer layer of skin cells, those that block pores, trap bacteria, and steal your vibrant complexion.

We use medical grade chemical peels from Glytone by Enerpeel®— Glytone combines pharmaceutical expertise with cosmo-dermatological excellence to create targeted and transforming skin solutions for healthy, radiant skin. Our hand-picked peels are base on your skin type and sensitivity, our expert providers will choose the chemical peel that is right for you.

How it works:

Each procedure is non-invasive and formulated with active chemical exfoliants packed with powerful acids to penetrate the skin for consistent, reliable exfoliation and long-lasting, visible results.

 

Peels effectively speed up the process of cellular turnover by shedding the top layer of dead surface cells, revealing brighter, smoother and renewed skin underneath.

Each peel procedure takes around 20 minutes depending on the type of peel and number of layers applied. During the procedure, a mild tingling, itching or heating sensation may be temporarily experienced.

Salicylic Acid (SA) - Acne / Oily. GOOD FOR:

Designed for the treatment of acne, this peel delivers a high dose of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and sebum and cell turnover-slowing ingredients into the pores. Combined with salicylic acid you will see a reduction of oil, and exfoliation that will assist in unblocking pores. It is also used for controlling the inflammatory phase of papules and pustules. We can also use this on back and chest.

  • Texture

When you are wanting improvement in skin tone, smoothness and clarity, this is your go-to peel. It is a gentle but highly effective anti-aging medical-grade peel treatment, addressing multiple signs of aging including open pores and pigmentation. It has a sebum slowing effect like Salicylic acid, but it penetrates much deeper. PA peels can be very useful for post-acne damage and oiliness. 

  • Excessive oiliness

  • Sun Damage on Neck, Décolleté, Cleavage Lines

  • Open Pores

  • Alternative to Salicylic Acid peel in aspirin-allergic patients

Brightening Eye & Lip Chemical Peel. GOOD FOR:

  • Hyper pigmented lesions on the back of the hand

  • Chronological aging

  • Photo damage including poor tone and texture

  • Beginning actinic keratoses

Neck Peel - Neck and Décolletage. GOOD FOR:

Delicate skin on the neck and chest requires equally delicate treatment. The Enerpeel for the Neck and Décolletage includes lower % of pyruvic and lactic acids. 

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Aging

  • Sun Damage

  • Beginning actinic keratoses

Why Treating Connected Areas Makes Sense

By treating your hands, arms and chest the same as you do your face, you’ll keep a much more “together” look. 

Aging and sun damage show in more places than just your face. By treating your hands, arms and chest the same as you do your face, you’ll keep a much more “together” look.

No matter what chemical peel you choose, it is vital that you follow strict adherence to a sun protection program to maintain your results and prevent unwanted pigment changes. Medical chemical peels need to be correctly chosen for your skin type and condition and should be administered in a physician’s office. Exact combinations and formulations will provide safe and long lasting results.

The best results are usually achieved through periodic treatment.  Our clinicians can help create a chemical peel schedule that will work with your lifestyle and budget.
