We offer advanced options in facial chemical peels at our medical facility in Manhattan to achieve healthier, younger-looking skin.

We have the right chemical peel treatment that can reveal your best skin and a healthy glow.

Chemical Peels FAQs

How do chemical peels work?
Chemical peels will resurface the skin through the application of an acidic solution. In turn, these peels will promote the growth of a new healthy layer of skin as well as stimulate collagen and elastin under the skin. This improves pore size, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and uneven texture.

What should be avoided post procedure?
It is important to avoid UV radiation post peel, and keep the skin well hydrated. Skin should be washed with a gentle cleanser.

Is a chemical peel painful?
Most patients do not experience pain from a peel. Typically, most patients will only experience a mild to moderate burning feeling during their procedure.

What are common active ingredients in chemical peels?
Common ingredients include glycolic, mandelic, salicylic, lactic and trichloroacetic acids.

What are the associated risks and side effects from a chemical peel?
Most people will feel a little dry after a peel, but there does not need to be downtime associated with chemical peels. Expert dermatologist Dr. Morgan specializes in a “red carpet peel,” which refreshes the skin without the downtime.

Can I wear makeup after a peel?
Yes, you absolutely can wear makeup! We recommend using sunscreen as well.

What is the benefit of a chemical peel?
There is a list of benefits, including improving the skin’s color, clarity, tone and texture. Peels work to stimulate new collagen and the health of skin cell growth for a more radiant complexion. Peels can also reduce discoloration from sun exposure.

How many peels are needed to see any change?
The number of peels completed depends on the condition of a patient’s skin. Improvement is noticeable after each peel. For most patients, it will take around 5-6 peels to achieve the best results.

How do I prepare for a chemical peel?
After speaking with a dermatologist to determine the best peel for your skin, it is important not to exfoliate beforehand. It is also recommended to stop any anti-aging or anti-acne medications.

If you want to improve the overall appearance of your skin’s tone and texture, a facial chemical peel treatment should be part of your skincare routine.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
