Patients ask, “Is there a dermatologist near me who treats facial areas with chemical peels?”
Age spots and acne, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, can contribute to feeling insecure about our appearance. We may turn to makeup to cover up acne or dark patches of melasma. We may opt for a disguised look with a hat and sunglasses. There is no reason to hide our true beauty. However, there are treatments that can restore youthfulness and vibrancy to the appearance of our skin. Many patients in Montclair will ask, “Is there a dermatologist near me who treats facial areas with chemical peels?” The team at image Dermatology ® P.C. will reply with a resounding, “Yes!”
Dr. Jeanine Downie is the founder of image Dermatology ® P.C. and is often a guest on shows including The Dr. Oz Show, Good Morning America, and The Today Show. Dr. Downie is also known for personally performing the same procedures on herself that she offers patients. She believes a patient testimonial is important for any treatment and will proudly add her own when asked about dermal fillers, Botox, chemical peels, laser hair removal, and many others.
Dr. Downie performs a chemical peel on herself once a month. She has seen firsthand the beautiful results from treatment including more youthful-looking and rejuvenated skin. Certain types of chemical peels can be used to reduce fine lines around the nose and under the eyes. After treatment, there is no longer any reason to hide behind bulky sunglasses. Chemical peels vary in strength. Light chemical peels may be ideal for fighting acne. Deep chemical peels can be used to treat acne scars and skin discoloration.

The Vitalize Peel includes lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol and can is applied to the face for a few minutes. Then, retinoic acid is applied and the chemicals are left on the skin for deeper penetration. After washing off the peel the next morning, patients can embrace desired results. With many chemical peels, patients may experience light flaking, but not a ton of peeling. Even the light flaking is a form of skin exfoliation, allowing their best selves to shine through after treatment. Dr. Downie believes chemical peels provide the glow factor many patients seek.
Chemical peels are popular treatments because they are convenient and typically comfortable. Patients can enjoy chemical peel treatment during lunch breaks. With virtually no downtime, they can return to work or other daily activities after treatments. Dr. Downie will recommend wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 after treatment, even when indoors. The sunscreen should be reapplied every few hours. Following these tips can improve results of treatment. Many patients enjoy results for up to a year.
