What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels reduce fine lines, refine pores, treat acne, lessen the appearance of pigmentation while making your skin appear and feel smoother. At Queens Laser Hair Removal we offer several different kinds of peels in order to treat different skin tones and conditions.  Which peel is right for you is determined during your initial consultation and after a careful analysis of your skin and medical history. 
WHY WAIT.  Call us at 718-476-3299 or (814)EZ-LASER to schedule your next Peel.

ARE CHEMICAL PEELS SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?
We offer chemical peels that are safe for all skin types including South Asians (Indians, Pakistanis…), West Indians (Guyanese, Trinidanians, Jamaicans…) and Hispanics.    Vitalize and Illuminize Peels  are clinically proven, effective and gentle formulation that smoothes and corrects age spots, fine lines and wrinkles as well as acne for all skin types.  After just one peel you will notice improvement in your skin’s texture and tone, lessening of fine lines and a healthier more youthful appearance.  Dramatic results can be achieved with a series of peels.

We call it the ‘light peel’.  Illuminize Peel offers a novel approach to very superficial chemical peeling utilizing a new generation of alpha hydroxy acids (Mandelic Acid and Malic Acid) in combination with Phytic Acid and commonly used peeling agents (Salicylic Acid and Resorcinol) to maximize skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation.    This peel is safe for skin types including South Asians (Indians, Pakistanis…), West Indians (Guyanese, Trinidanians, Jamaicans…) and Hispanics.

VITALIZE PEEL
Vitalize Peel® is a more powerful yet non-damaging chemical peel that helps fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. This peel can take years off aging skin in just minutes. This special formulation includes a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol, and retinoic acid (obtained by physicians only). While results are predictable and noticeable after just one peel, dramatic results are seen after a series of peels. This is a highly effective rejuvenation procedure with no downtime. It is highly effective on clearing acne, and reversing the effects of aging, sun damage and environmental factors. Anyone who wants younger, healthier skin will benefit from this peel.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Depending on the type of peel, possible side effects may include mild redness, drying and/or flaking of the skin, itching, swelling, burning, blistering, skin discoloration and possible crusting of the skin.  If swelling, burning, blistering, discoloration, or crusting occurs, contact us for assistance.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER MY PEEL?
You may be more sensitive to sun exposure.  Take precautions by using Sunscreen SPF 30 and wear protective clothing. We recommend limiting sun exposure for at least one week after your Vitalize peel and 2 to 3 days after your Illuminize peel.

POST-PEEL INSTRUCTIONS
This procedure utilizes ingredients that may increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. The use of a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and limited sun exposure is recommended while using this product and for at least a week afterwards.
The skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next two or three days prior to peeling. After 48 hours a slight flaking may occur which can easily be controlled with Aquaphor or Vaseline.    Many ingredients in foundations are greasy, fragranced and can be irritating; therefore, foundations should not be worn after the Vitalize Peels or during the days when the skin is actually peeling. Avoid the sun, scrubs, AHAs, glycolic acid, Vitamin C or retinal creams. Let the skin shed at its own rate to avoid scarring or rashes; avoid pulling or peeling shedding skin.  After one to two weeks, the skin should look clearer and smoother and the use of normal skin care products can resume.
