Has your skin been looking less than its best lately? Problems like scars and wrinkles can leave you looking older than you feel. If your skin is in need of a tuneup, you should consider undergoing a treatment with a chemical peel. These skin rejuvenation procedures come in a variety of formulations and strengths to help turn back the clock on aging skin and reduce signs of sun damage and acne scars.
What Is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are simply chemical solutions that we apply to the skin to remove damaged skin tissue affected by signs of aging and sun damage. The type that you require can be determined at your initial consultation.
What Do Glycolic and Lactic Acid Peels Help Treat?
Glycolic and lactic acid peels are some of the mildest forms available. They are basically a type of mild exfoliation to remove the buildup of dead skin cells and cellular debris that cover up fresh skin underneath. They are quite effective for those with a dull skin tone or very light wrinkles, but may require multiple applications in some cases. These types of gentle peels do not usually require sedation or any downtime.
More than one treatment may be required in order to reach your goals. Our staff can recommend how many treatments you may need, as well as how far apart you should space them. Spacing the treatments apart allows your skin time to heal, which means the chemical peels can be as effective and efficient as possible.
Should I Take Any Precautions After a Chemical Peel?
You should avoid excessive rubbing or manipulation of your skin in the days following your treatment. This is because your skin will be quite sensitive at this time. Since we have removed portions of the outer skin layer, your skin will be more vulnerable until it can heal and remodel.
Avoid activities that can significantly dry your skin, like vigorous physical exercise. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and take care to remain hydrated while your skin heals from your peel. Our professionals can offer you more detailed aftercare instructions at your consultation.

I have been a patient of Dr.Jacobs for over 20 years,,Over that time period he has discovered, treated, and has removed several skin cancers from me. I can clearly state that if it weren’t for him I probably would not be alive today..His staff has always been the most professional and his clinical environment is always immaculate. I would recommend anyone with dermatological issues from psoriasis to melanoma to consult with Dr. Michael Jacobs.

I had the best experience with Dr. Jacobs. Went to see two doctors who misdiagnosed a rash I had on my ankle. Dr. Jacobs identified it within seconds, prescribed a medication and it started to clear up two days later. The staff is wonderful and I would go back anytime.

For over 30 years, Dr. Jacobs has treated me. He is cordial, friendly and listens. Most recently, I had a severe case of bedbug bites that I got in Portugal. Literally within minutes of texting him with photos, he corrected the diagnosis I'd been given at a local hospital clinic and told me the medicines I needed. While I saw two doctors in Europe, it was Dr. Jacobs who helped me control my anxiety. For over three weeks, he communicated frequently with me - reconfirming what I was doing was correct and reassuring me the bites would get better, Dr. Jacobs is my go to! He is thoughtful, direct and clear in conveying his diagnosis. I am grateful to him for his care and appreciate all he has done for me over the years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacob's for over a year and although I went for one procedure, I kept coming due to their outstanding and attentive service. Their facility is very clean and the staff is very professional. Their equipment is top of the line. I've had hair removal and lasers done that was totally painless. I highly recommend this facility.
Too Modest to Publicize Himself

The wonderful work the Doctor did restoring a freshness to my face and neck was enough to convince 5 women pictured in The Social Register to make appointments of their own. Whether socially, for a polished image at work, or for health and wellness to take personal care seriously, this is the doctor to visit. NOT one who sells her services on TV talk shows. This office is not a Botox factory assembly line. When comparing notes, we women agreed that each was treated uniquely as specialized treatments were matched with care and a sure sense of what would be pleasing and successful with each patient. May I note as well that there are quite a number of men in the office seeking treatment as well!. This is a board certified physician who teaches his skills at Cornell. It goes without saying that his professional demeanor causes a patient to trust his judgement.
