Chemical Peels


A chemical peel is an ideal treatment if your facial skin has been damaged by acne, sun exposure or hyper-pigmentation. This procedure refines skin texture and removes unwanted skin blemishes and discolorations. The result is newly vibrant, beautiful skin that looks and feels younger and smoother.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ellen Mahony will explain the various options for chemical peels she offers in her Westport, Connecticut cosmetic surgery practice and recommend a customized treatment and skin care regimen for you.

Ellen’s three-dimensional analysis considers all potential options, such as neurotoxins, dermal fillers, and facial surgery. For chemical peels, Ellen offers light, medium or deep options – each varying by intensity and recovery time. After your treatment, you can expect to see significant improvement in your skin, which will be visibly smoother, clearer and brighter. Pharmaceutical-grade products and a personalized skin care program can maximize your results.

Wearing sunscreen is particularly important following your chemical peel treatments. The younger, fresher skin revealed after a chemical peel can easily be burned if you spend much time outdoors without proper sun protection. If you don’t already use a high-quality UVA and UVB sunscreen, Ellen can recommend one for you.
