A Chemical Peel is an effective treatment option for a variety of skin issues: reducing fine lines, wrinkles, mild scarring, age spots, sun damage, blemishes, or improving overall skin appearance. Generally, there are three types of Chemical Peels, ranging from Light, Medium to Deep - the severity of peel, therefore the strength of chemical used, is dependent on what skin symptoms are being treated. Acids and chemical solutions of Alphahydroxy Acids (AHA), Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), and Phenol cause layers of skin to be exfoliate chemically and new, regenerated skin is typically smoother and has better texture. The more severe the peel, the more downtime may be required for new skin to regenerate but results are more dramatic.Request a Consultation

Prudence L. Ferrone- Director of Aesthetic Services "Prudy," as she is affectionately known around the office, has been in the personal care, beauty, and wellness industry for over 20 years. The roots of her aesthetic interests first sprang up when she began working for Lanc�me cosmetics as a make-up artist. Following that she began working as a wardrobe coordination consultant for Beauty Control.
In her continuing desire to work with people, fashion, and glamour, she entered the world of fragrance as a consultant for Burberry and Boucheron. As Prudy began her family, she tapped her entrepreneurial spirit by launching a successful jewelry design company where she served as both senior designer and CEO.
As her family grew, she began focusing on using her multifaceted skills and experience in the growing medical cosmetic arena. Her first step was to enter the field of personal care and nutritional supplementation with the international giant Nu Skin Enterprises and Pharmanex.
While there, Prudy was a respected trainer and lecturer while achieving the pinnacle of success and earning capacity. During this time she was also responsible for bringing to fruition the concept of nutritional wellness centers to medical practices, creating over 200 in the tri-state area.

Prudy, like millions of Americans is an aging baby boomer "As I continue to 'mature,' I want to feel good and look my best as long as possible. I have tried all types of procedures short of surgery; I know what works and what doesn't."
