Skin & Face Peels
What are Skin Peels and Face Peels?
A skin peel is a chemical process that can transform deep, tired lines and wrinkles, under eye circles, rough and sun-damaged skin to a more beautiful, vibrant and youthful appearance. There are many different types of skin peels offered today, all of which can be light, medium, or deep. A Skin Rejuvenation Peel (SRP) is the deepest skin peel available and offers the most dramatic results, which can last for many years.
Though it is not a surgical process (there is no cutting with a scalpel) skin peels are still invasive, as they penetrate the outer layers of the skin, and should only be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. A skin peel may be recommended instead of a facelift or after a facelift to improve the skin. A private consultation with Dr. Man will help you decide what procedure is best for you.

As a result of aging our skin turn around time is prolonged, the skin gets thinner, and we develop light, medium and deep wrinkles. We also develop damage from sun exposure, and deep pigmentations, which leave our skin tone uneven, wrinkled, cause lose skin, acne pits or scars; that’s where I, Dr. Daniel Man can offer significant help thanks to my extensive experience in this art of chemical peels. I have developed a specific proprietary chemical peel (SRP). This procedure gives you the best results possible with a chemical peel and is considered to be the gold standard by which all other peels are measured. During the SRP treatment I use combination of chemical peel and a few other methods in order improve your skin of the face, eyelids, mouth, neck chest and hands, by gently removing the damaged layers giving you a new tighter skin without the ravages of aging. The protocol I perform stimulates cell turn over to make you look younger and radiant with thicker, healthier skin. The protocol I perform requires 6 days to complete in order to achieve optimal results. Aging skin with all the ravages of time did not develop over night, but I can assure you that after 6 days your skin will look and feel much younger and will keep looking younger and more vibrant for years. After having done thousands of these procedures, the patients, my staff and myself are always astonished as to how amazing the patients transformation is, many times without cutting at all. What kinds of peels exist? What is the history of chemical peels? For many years we have been using several types of chemical peels. However, many of the next described peels have to be done 4 to 6 times in order to be effective. 1) ALPHA HYDROXY (AHA) PEELS; These are also called Glycolic acid or Carboxylic acid and these are Alpha Hydroxy Acids, usually found in nature (glycolic, citric, lactic, malic and tartaric), these are the mildest type of peel and these can affect fine lines. These peels can affect fine lines, but are also known to have side effects such as redness, stinging, dryness and flaking of the skin. These are also modified and in turn also appear in some of our skin care such as facial wash and various creams as they are used to improve our skin’s texture slowly. 2) BETA HYDROXY (BHA) PEELS; Salicylic acid is an example of a Beta Hydroxy acid peel. These peels can go deeper then AHA peels and affect the skin pore size and decrease the sebaceous glands activity thereby improving and leaving the skin with less clogged pores. 3) JESSNER PEEL Dr Jessner, a German American dermatologist, pioneered this peel; it combines 14 % of each of the following;
- Aging Skin
- Deep wrinkles
- Severe sun damage and precancerous skin
- Severe Melasma
- Control Acne
- Reduce size of large pores
- Tighten loose skin
- Hormonal skin changes
