Chemical peels can benefit both women and men who would like to give their skin a more youthful, healthier appearance. These popular, non-surgical skin care options can address an array of concerns that affect skin texture, tone, and overall aesthetics in areas such as the face and neck, and they can also be performed on the hands and other body regions. A chemical peel can often be an ideal treatment to reduce signs of:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Brown spots, age spots, and other types of hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Mild scarring
  • Oily skin

Our skilled skin care team here at the Godek Center offers a comprehensive selection of chemical peels that can be performed on many different skin types. We can help you determine the best option for your goals.

Chemical Peel Treatment

Many skin care experts recommend chemical peels when their patients are in need of an exfoliating effect that treats skin slightly deeper than a topical cream can. Our New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Godek and our skin care professionals typically recommend the chemical peels listed below based on your needs and cosmetic goals following a consultation.

Salicylic Peel

A Salicylic Peel can exfoliate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, ultimately helping the skin replenish itself. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial components of the Salicylic Peel often make it a good choice for patients with acne.

Glycolic Peel

At our practice in New Jersey chemical peels, including the popular glycolic peel, can diminish signs of large pores, eliminate dead skin cells, and generally give the skin a healthier, more refreshed look.

Lactic Bright Peel

The Lactic Bright Peel can be an ideal treatment to address fine lines, discoloration, skin “roughness,” and other common signs of aging.

Jessner Peel

This is a very effective peel for a wide range of skin types, such as acne-prone and photo-damaged skin. It can also treat fine lines. You may experience moderate skin peeling for 2–4 days. The post-skin care kit is required for this peel.

Belladerma Signature Back Peel

This treatment addresses the back and shoulders for acne, uneven skin tone, and rough skin. In this treatment, glycolic or salicylic acids are used, depending on the skin type.

Mid-Level Chemical Peels

With the ability to target deeper layers of the dermis, mid-level peels can be good options for minimizing signs of fine lines and improving the balance of skin pigmentation. These advanced peels can also aid the skin’s development of collagen, ultimately helping to produce enhanced tone and firmer skin.

CPG Resurface Peel

This chemical peel is a blend of Trichloroacetic acid and salicylic acid, which helps bring a luminous glow to the skin. A resurface peel is designed to reduce fine lines, decrease pore size, and improve overall texture. The resurface masque is applied in-office, and the patient leaves with the masque on, following a simple but strict at-home skin care regimen. In about 36 hours, light to moderate peeling will begin. After a period of about four days, peeling diminishes to a very light peel. After about one week, the skin should look brighter and firmer. Most patients also see a difference in pore size and texture.

CPG Skin Brightening Peel

This chemical peel is designed to improve the texture and appearance of sun-damaged skin. A lightening masque is applied in-office, and the patient continues to follow an easy but strict at-home skin care regimen. In about 36 hours, light to moderate peeling will begin and last over a period of four days, diminishing to a very light peel by the fourth day. Results will vary, but after about one week areas of hyperpigmentation should appear lighter, and most patients notice an improvement in skin texture.

CPG Skin Clarifying Peel

This superficial peel combines salicylic acid and azelaic with retinol, which has revolutionized the treatment of acne. This skin clarifying peel helps to control acne while giving the skin a smoother texture and a healthier glow. This chemical peel is supported by home-care products to aid in the benefits of the treatment. This peel can be repeated every two to three weeks.

PCA Peels

Sensei Peels

The Sensei Peel offers a unique peeling option suitable for all patients, including those with highly sensitive skin. Its formulation aims to enhance surface texture and promote a brighter skin tone.

Ultra Peel I

A specialized TCA blend consisting of 20% lactic acid and 10% TCA, designed specifically to address dehydrated and aging skin concerns. It is also recognized for its efficacy in treating acne, pigment disorders, and sun-damaged skin.

PCA Peel with Hydroquinone

Comprising 14% Lactic acid, 14% Salicylic acid, and Citric Acid, alongside 3% Kojic Acid and 2% Hydroquinone, this acid blend effectively diminishes hyperpigmentation and fosters a more uniform skin tone. It serves as an ideal remedy for acne, hormone-induced breakouts, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Cosmelan Peel

With cosmelan®, you're not just getting a regular surface treatment – it goes deeper to tackle the root cause of pigmentation issues. Imagine it as a superhero treatment that not only visibly reduces pigmentation spots but also regulates the overproduction of pigmentation, preventing those spots from making a comeback.

And if you're struggling with those pesky skin spots that pop up after dealing with acne, known as Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), cosmelan is the ultimate solution for you—it's effective on these spots, regardless of your skin type.

Special Considerations

When considering a treatment with chemical peels New Jersey patients should keep a few things in mind:

  • The use of all topical retinoids (such as Retin-A and Differen® [Adapalene 1%]) and any products that contain retinol, benzoyl peroxide, AHA, or BHA should be stopped at least three to four days prior to the chemical peel treatment.
  • Chemical peels are not recommended for patients who are suffering from open wounds, sunburn, inflammatory rosacea, facial warts, or active cold sores.
  • Chemical peels are not advised for patients who have taken Accutane in the year prior to treatment.
  • Chemical peels are not recommended for patients who have undergone radiation treatments or chemotherapy.
  • It is recommended that patients who are pregnant or lactating avoid chemical peels.
  • Patients who have vitiligo should not undergo a chemical peel treatment.
