WHAT IS A TYPICAL CHEMICAL PEEL IN NJ?
As the name suggests, a chemical peel employs specific chemical solutions to be applied to the face. These chemical solutions are generally clear and may vary from glycolic acid for a milder peel to trichloroacetic acid for a medium to deep peel. These solutions damage the outer layers of the skin on purpose in order to separate them from the bottom layers, allowing the skin’s natural repair mechanism to take hold and stimulating the undamaged skin underneath. The damaged skin will then peel off over the course of several days. A chemical peel is often used to treat certain types of acne, as well skin damage due to sun exposure. It can also help improve other skin flaws such as irregular pigmentation, blotches, and wrinkles.

WHY DOES DR. RAPAPORT SUGGEST CHEMICAL SKIN PEELING SERIES INSTEAD OF ONE DEEPER PEEL?
Studies show that a series of chemical peels administered consistently within a short period of time is significantly more effective than one deep and extensive procedure. It is based on these findings that Dr. Rapaport developed a way to duplicate the results of one deep procedure in a series of medium peels, so you get the same results without the inconvenience of a long recovery time.
