Chemical Peel FAQ

Chemical Peel Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel uses exfoliating solutions such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) or Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove damaged or aged layers of skin to reveal the softer, more youthful skin underneath.

How is a Chemical Peel performed?

Most chemical peel procedures begin with prepping the skin either with skin care treatments or with microdermabrasion. Our licensed professional will cleans your skin and use a mild toner to remove any oils before gently applying layers of a solution to peel away the aged surface of the skin.

Depending on the procedure, the solution is left on your face for a certain period of time before the product is removed. After removing the peel solution a cream is applied to aid in comfort.

What is the recovery time for a Chemical Peel?

Recovery time after a chemical peel is dependant on the type of peel. After a chemical peel procedure, your skin may feel tight or sunburned. The proper skin care regimen is important to speed up the healing process and enhance results.

Cleansing, moisturizing, using sunscreen are highly recommended after a chemical peel. Avoid sun exposure during the early healing period. Do not peel off loose skin. Allow skin to exfoliate on its own.

What results should I expect?

The results of a chemical peel vary depending on the peel that you receive. A superficial peel slightly reduces the signs of aging and skin damage. Medium peels are more effective in reducing signs of sun damage and fine wrinkles helping with the appearance of aging skin.

What are the costs of a Chemical Peel?

The cost of a chemical peel depends on the type of peel you receive. Please see our Chemical Peel Pricing page for current prices.

How long do Chemical Peels take?

Most peels are performed in less than one hour, depending on size of the area being treated.

What will my skin feel like after a Chemical Peel?

The state of your skin after a peel depends on what kind of peel you had. The superficial peels have limited effects and the medium peels may cause some redness.

How many Peels will I need?

The superficial peels are usually done several times over the course of several months. Regardless of the technique, you will likely need repeat treatments.

How long do the results last?

With good sun protection, results can last months to years, depending on the depth of the peel. Generally, the deeper peels have a more long lasting effect.

What are the risks of Chemical Peels?

Superficial peels are quite safe although rarely minor irritation of the skin can occur.
