Chemical Peels

Erasing Facial Imperfections, Layer by Layer

Youtherapy: The go-to source in Manhattan and Westchester for expert medical grade peels

A chemical peel is a procedure in which a combination of exfoliating ingredients are applied to remove the top layers of dead skin and reveal new, brighter results, rejuvenating the complexion. At Youtherapy, we only use medically approved high-grade chemical peels in order to expose the soft, clear and radiant underlying skin. They’ve been called the secret to perfect skin for years now, and for good reason!

What It Treats

Most clients choose a chemical peel to help with fine lines, uneven pigmentation, mild acne, and even acne scars. When done in a series, peels can also be used to minimize the effect of deep facial wrinkles and improve uneven skin tone caused by sun damage or aging.

Procedure Time

Majority of our peels range from 30 – 45 minutes.

Recovery Time

Moderate to none, depending on the peel.

Are you a candidate for a chemical peel

At Youtherapy, each of our peel treatments begin with a personal consultation with one of our experienced estheticians. From this evaluation and discussing your current skin concerns, we will determine your suitability for a specific chemical peel or a combination of treatments. We will recommend a customized treatment plan based on your skin type, skin condition, age, health, skin laxity, and your personal cosmetic goals.


You may not be a candidate for a chemical peel if you have:


• A history of abnormal or severe skin scarring
• A naturally dark complexion or skin tone
• A tendency to have extra pigmentation of your scars
• Used certain acne treatments prior to your peel, such as Retin-A or Hydroquinone
• Skin conditions or medications that make the skin more sensitive than normal
• No intention to use sun protection, as a chemical peel will make the skin more susceptible to hyperpigmentation when not protected with SPF

For more information visit our Chemical Peels FAQs page.


Improvements from chemical peels start becoming visible within a few days and may reach their maximum effect after a few weeks. However, depending on your skin type and other factors, a series of peels may be recommended for optimal results.


I’ve seen so much online about chemical peels and how they do wonders for your skin so I decided to try it. I was a little nervous at first, but the professionals at Youtherapy took the time to listen, carefully evaluate my face, ease my anxieties, and perform the procedure flawlessly. I haven’t felt the need to wear makeup since!

Level 1 – Vitalize Peel


SkinMedica’s Vitalize Peel is one of the most popular chemical peels at Youtherapy Medspa because it is gentler on the skin than traditional chemical peels. Don’t be fooled – it still provides a great exfoliation and physically peels the skin. With a combination of Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, Beta-Hydroxy Acid, Resorcinol Acid, and Retinoic Acid, the Vitalize Peel provides a unique mix of ingredients that is a powerful yet non-damaging peel that can take years off aging skin. This is the perfect peel for patients with mild to moderate skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, pigment irregularities, and acne. You will see noticeable results after one peel; significant results after 3 to 6 peels. Treatments can be repeated every 3-4 weeks until desired results are reached.


Treatment Time: 30-45 Minutes

Level 2 – Rejuvenize Peel


SkinMedica’s Rejuvenize Peel is our strongest peel. It penetrates into the epidermis using a combination of strong but safe acids specifically formulated for the deepest exfoliation. When done in a series of 5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, it can substantially improve the appearance of the skin. This advanced formulation of peeling agents, with a built-in anti-irritant and penetration enhancer provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost damaged layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin.


Treatment Time: 30-45 Minutes

NEW! BioRePeel from Italy

This new, non-peeling-peel from Italy is part of a new generation of bio-revitalization peels with a two-layer technology, treating the deeper layer of skin below the surface, the dermis. One layer protects and moisturizes, which attributes to the non-irritating result. The second layer contains the innovative mixture of active ingredients to achieve the immediate lightening and tightening result that will improve over time.


This amazing treatment targets all imperfections of the skin and works on all skin types. Youtherapy’s offices in Scarsdale and Manhattan offer customizable options for the Italian non-peel that can reduce common signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, brown sun spots, and acne scarring. In addition, BioRePeel plumps and hydrates your skin, creating a gorgeous glow. For optimal results, a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 7-12 days apart is recommended. Results may vary depending on client concerns and skin.
