Dr. Scott Wells Skingym™, our highly experienced European skin care team offers a variety of unique and customized, medical-grade peels that will take years off your skin and improve the texture, cellular turnover rate, moisturizing ability, collagen production and softness of your skin.

An advanced grade peel can also reduce fine lines, decrease hyper-pigmentation, unclog pores, clear acne, smoothen the skin, even out skin tone, give you a glow and improve minor scarring. We offer the following medical grade peels at our Park Avenue location in Manhattan and Long Island.

Wells Signature Peel- This is our ultimate skin freshening and hydrating “no peel” peel. A gentle combination of Alpha Hydroxy Acids gently exfoliates the skin while adding the extra benefit of hydration. Also known as our “Red Carpet Facial” this peel has no down-time, is safe enough for sensitive skin, and perfect for those who have an upcoming event.

V.I. Peel — This Peel Contains Retinol, TCA, Phenol, Vitamin C and a blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. It provides great results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little or no downtime. The V.I. Peel can improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin; reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma; soften lines and wrinkles; clear acne skin conditions; reduce or eliminate acne scars; and stimulate the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin. It also works well in conjunction with lasers, injectables and following surgical procedures.

Glycolic Peel – This customizable Glycolic Peel is a high performance cosmetic skin care system formulated with a patented anti-irritant and available only through physicians. It begins to accelerate exfoliation, then works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin texture and tone, with little or none of the irritation normally associated with cosmetic chemical peels.

Other Hydroxyacid Peels – These peels combine an equal proportion of glyocolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid for the treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.

Sircuit Skin Peel — We also offer peels from Sircuit Skin Cosmeseuticals that combine AHA, BHA, Retinol and antioxidants. This peel is excellent for acne and giant pores, sun damage and hyperpigmentation (spots), plus fine lines and wrinkles.

Enzyme Peels – These peels use fruit enzymes and are designed to treat the upper layers of the skin and flush out the dead cells. They use a combination of pumpkin enzyme, marine enzyme and exfozyme for very sensitive skin.

Dr. Wells will recommend the right peel depending upon your skin type and condition.

Peels Q & A

What are facials and peels?

Facials include a range of skincare treatments that rejuvenate facial skin and result in more vibrant, healthy-looking skin. Facials may serve to reduce the size of visible pores, minimize bacteria on the surface of the skin, and improve the absorption of skincare products. Our experienced esthetician will work with you to select an appropriate facial/peel for your unique skin condition and/or skin type.

One great advantage of facials/peels is that these cosmetic treatments are suitable for people of all ages and virtually all skin types. These procedures are specially designed for those with acne, wrinkles or large pores, and for those who simply desire smoother, younger-looking facial skin.

What other therapies are combined with facials/peels?

At our Park Avenue Plastic Surgery Center, we utilize a range of cutting-edge technologies and treatments for facials. We offer custom European Facials, Gentlemen’s Facials, Sensitive Skin Facials for sensitive skin types and rosacea, Acne Facials, and Express Facials for those on the go.

Your facial treatment may be combined with a selection of other cosmetic procedures, such as: AB Lift – uses radiofrequency technology to improve the appearance of aging, saggy skin Chemical peels – improves skin with the use of chemical agents
Dermaplaning – removes dead skin from the surface to reveal newly regenerated skin underneath Light Therapies – heals skin with Gentle Waves and Bioptron light

Oxygen – improves the absorption abilities of skin
Post-laser treatment – application of ointments and creams after laser skin resurfacing

Your facial/peel experience will be a personalized one. Schedule an appointment to determine which procedure may best suit your needs.

What can I expect during my facial/peel?

Each facial/peel procedure is unique to the patient. However, prior to the application of any exfoliants or solutions, the skin is cleaned. The esthetician may apply steam to the skin to loosen and remove dirt or debris. She may also perform a facial massage to stimulate blood flow to the skin. After the facial mask is removed, the esthetician will thoroughly explain how to extend the effects of your treatment with at-home care.
