Who is the best candidate for a chemical peel treatment?

If you are a person who has issues with skin clarity, pigmentation irregularities, or want to improve your skin’s overall tone and texture, you are a great candidate for a chemical peel. While this treatment also smooths fine lines and wrinkles, it is highly effective for treating acne and resolving sun damage issues.

What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?

There are many different types of chemical peels that address different skin issues.  Superficial peels are helpful in the treatment of acne, clogged pores, sun spots, and fine lines and wrinkles.  Deeper level chemical peels can help treat skin that has more significant sun damage or discoloration due to sun exposure and they also help generate collagen production which improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Deeper level peels can even reduce the appearance of acne scars and also improve overall skin tone.

What is the cost of a chemical Peel?

The cost of a chemical peel can range from $125 – $600 when administered in a medical office by a licensed professional.

What is the down-time after a chemical peel?

Patients may experience tingling or dryness depending upon the type of peel used, immediately after the treatment. The skin might be slightly pink in color for a few days. Patients will slough treated areas of skin usually within a few days and flaking should be complete within a week. The deeper the peel, the longer the recovery, but the stronger the rejuvenating benefits. 

A complementary treatment that accelerates the sloughing of dead skin after a chemical peel is Dermaplaning. This additional treatment can shorten the recovery time for a chemical peel and when done before a peel, can increase the benefits of the peel treatment itself, allowing the peel penetrate more deeply into the skin.

What are the best products to help aid in the recovery from a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel treatment, patients should use a gentle cleanser with gentle cleansing techniques. Skin Medica’s TNS Recovery Serum and HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator are excellent, medical-grade products which help in the healing and recovery time from a chemical peel or really any skin treatment procedure.  Our Medical Aesthetician will prescribe a customized at home skin care regimen based on each person’s skin issues and clinical treatment schedules.
