Exfoliate for a Skin Transformation in Westfield, NJ
As a first line of defense against environmental pollution, debris, and other harmful elements, skin can take significant damage. Years of ultraviolet radiation, toxins, acne flare-ups, and the natural loss of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin can leave the skin looking dull, worn, spotted, scarred, and crisscrossed with fine lines and wrinkles. All of these can be addressed with a chemical peel. NJ-based Burnett Plastic Surgery offers several distinct chemical peels, giving patients the option to create a customized plan to transform their skin.
A chemical peel is an nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that works by taking away dead skin cells and other problem elements that prevent a smooth, clear look. The treatments sometimes remove the entire outermost layers of skin. With the debris and worn-out layers gone, a younger, fresher layer is exposed. This layer will feature less of the hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and other cosmetic annoyances that make a person look aged and tired.
Chemical peels also trigger collagen and elastin production as part of the natural healing process. Boosting the levels of both of these important elements in the skin gives the entire surface a rejuvenated and more youthful look and feel.
Burnett Plastic Surgery Chemical Peel Basics
A chemical peel is a strong topical solution applied directly to the skin for a set amount of time, then cleaned off. This is enough to start the transformation process, leading to exfoliation that happens over the course of the following days.
Our 90-Day Skin Transformation releases inner beauty through three unique chemical peels formulated to each patient's skin type and needs. With this form of customized skin care, provided at 30-day intervals throughout the process, patients see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. At the onset of the 90-Day Skin Transformation, Dr. Burnett and his team will carefully select the most appropriate chemical peel based on an assessment of the patients' skin.

Obagi Blue Radiance Chemical Peel
Ideal for addressing sun damage, redness, and even acne scars, the Obagi® Blue Radiance Peel can be completed in about half an hour and does not require any post-treatment down time. Patients enjoy improved complexion and a radiant and rejuvenated look. Treatments involve the application of a preparation solution, then the peel solution itself, to be left on for a maximum of 12 minutes. Some peeling is possible, with results improving over the next week or two.
Jan Marini's Clarify And Transform Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are effective for addressing a wide range of cosmetic complaints, but certain formulations have a more specific focus. The Jan Marini Clarify Peel is ideal for clearing acne outbreaks, reducing acne scarring, and helping patients with darker skin. The Transform Peel is a more "aggressive" option that yields more dramatic results, improving pigmentation irregularities, healing sun damage, and rejuvenating the skin. Both peels are available only at physicians' offices.
Resurfacing Gel Exfoliator
The Resurfacing Gel Exfoliator Aesthetician Formula by Jan Marini uses glycolic acid to decreases fine lines and wrinkles, create a firmer and softer feel, brighten the skin, even tone irregularities, minimize both acne lesions and acne scarring, and more. This chemical peel is good for all skin types and produces progressive results that are ideal for maintenance between other treatments that have a more dramatic effect. Downtime and recovery are minimal. Patients can resume their preferred activities—as well as wear makeup—right away.
More Skin Care Choices
Burnett Plastic Surgery also offers skincare products that can be applied at home to enhance the effects of a chemical peel, or as part of their own regimen designed to maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. Talk to the team to find out more about the available options.
