Facial Peels NYC: Exfoliate Your Skin to Reveal Smooth, Radiant Skin

Achieve healthy, glowing skin with nine different chemical peel formulations to complement each skin type. Our experienced estheticians provide you with innovative ingredients applied with masterful technique for superior results from our facial peels.

Benefits of Chemical Peels
  • Exfoliates dry, dull, dead skin
  • Smooths out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Targets skin imperfections, like hyperpigmentation and acne
  • Reveals smooth, radiant skin


A chemical facial peel is a skin resurfacing technique that improves the texture and tone of the skin on the face, as well as on the neck and hands. By using a chemical solution to dissolve the dead skin cells that sit on the surface of the face, a facial peel will reveal the fresher, younger looking skin that’s beneath.

The exfoliating effect of a chemical peel makes it highly effective for removing dead skin cells, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, melasma and skin imperfections caused by changing  hormones, aging or photodamage. Further, peels can aid in cellular turnover and promote collagen production. As a result, they are great addition to an anti-aging skincare regime.

Offering different facial peels allows our estheticians to customize each treatment to meet the individual skincare concerns of each client. Chemical peels differ in a variety of ways:

  • Acid Solution — Each peel takes advantage of a different acid as its active ingredient. Salicylic, glycolic, lactic or pyruvic acid are a few examples. Each provides different benefits for the skin.
  • Acid Concentration — Each formulation will peel to different depths of the skin. It all depends on the percentage of acid in the peel’s concentration.
  • Mechanism of Action — Facial peels differ in the way in which they lift off skin. While some peels lift off deep skin in a layer (called sheet peeling), others work by flaking off the skin.

Speak to one of our experts in beauty to find out which chemical peel and what acid concentration is right for you.

If you’re targeting a specific concern like hyperpigmentation or acne scarring, we recommend coming in for a facial peel once a month. For general skin turnover and anti-aging benefit, an appointment for a peel can be scheduled once every few months.

You can return to normal activity after a facial peel. Generally, skin will not appear red. However, your face will look better in ten days than it does right immediately following the peel. Depending on the peel, you may have flaking or layer flaking two to three days following treatment. That’s why it’s best to avoid the gym until the peeling process begins. Further, do not wear makeup or use mineral makeup (no oil, no talc, doesn’t clog pores). And, lastly, try a mineral sheer tint from the private label of Nicole Contos, Owner and CEO of Smooth Synergy.

We invite our clients to consider the perfect synergy between a chemical peel and one of our customized facials. A facial will assure you start with a clean slate for a chemical peel to work most effectively on the skin.

Smooth Synergy Owner, Nicole Contos, offers a brightening peel, which is a take-home peel. It’s a brightening pad that gives you a radiant glow, for an all-around shine and freshness.
