What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
Your chemical peel will be performed in-office at Manhattan Plastic Surgery NYC by double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Huettner and generally takes between 30 and 90 minutes. You will relax comfortably to ensure a smooth application as the peel is evenly applied to your skin, where it will be left on for a certain amount of time to allow the desired effects to occur.
As the solution begins to dry, you may notice a mild tingling or burning sensation, but this varies from patient to patient and Dr. Huettner will keep a close eye on your skin as the peel works to ensure you don’t experience an adverse reaction.
After your treatment, the solution will need to be neutralized and removed. Many light or superficial peels neutralize automatically after a period of time, but medium and deep peels may require a neutralizing agent to stop the effects of the chemicals.
