What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and remove the top layer of damaged skin cells. This process helps improve the skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance.

Am I a good candidate for a chemical peel?

Most individuals can be good candidates for a chemical peel. There are various types of peels designed for different skin types and concerns. During a consultation, a qualified professional will assess your skin and determine the most suitable peel.

How long does a chemical peel take?

The duration of a chemical peel procedure can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel. In general, it can take from 30 to 60 minutes. Some peels may require multiple sessions for optimal results.

When can I return to work after my chemical peel?

Many chemical peels have little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal activities, including work or school, shortly after the treatment. However, the downtime can vary depending on the type of peel. Stronger peels may require one to two weeks for the skin to fully heal.

What are the potential side effects of a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are generally safe but may have some mild side effects such as redness, skin irritation, tenderness, and temporary changes in skin color. It's crucial to avoid sun exposure during the healing process, as the skin becomes sensitive and can darken. Serious complications like infection or scarring are rare when performed by skilled professionals.

How much will my chemical peel cost?

The cost of a chemical peel can vary depending on the specific type of peel used and the extent of correction required. Since chemical peels are typically considered cosmetic procedures, health insurance does not cover them. However, we offer various payment options, including cash, major credit cards, and healthcare financing through CareCredit, to make the treatment more affordable.
