WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
Chemical peels are one of the most widely used and trusted methods for reviving the skin. As the name implies, the procedure involves applying a chemical solution to the face in order to peel off the upper layers of skin and reveal the clean, damage-free layers beneath. At Optimal Health & Skin, we use the Skinceuticals® range of peels to create the highest quality results*. Two common options are:
- Glycolic Peels – This peel uses glycolic acid to get rid of the top layer of skin, revealing a beautiful, clean complexion underneath. A milder peel, many patients benefit* from several glycolic peels spread over a longer period of time.
- TCA Peels – Also known as trichloroacetic peels, TCA peels can address wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and more. Intended to penetrate into a medium-depth layer of skin, these peels are generally more aggressive than glycolic peels and may require longer recovery* time.
The best way to determine which peel is recommended for you is to schedule a consultation.
HOW MUCH DO CHEMICAL PEELS COST?
Each individual will require a different approach to their chemical peel to get the most impressive results*. In an effort to fully customize each procedure to the individual, we price each procedure on a case-by-case basis. The cost of your procedure will be calculated at the time of your consultation, so that you can make the most informed decision regarding how to move forward.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHEMICAL PEELS?
There are countless reasons to choose a chemical peel treatment. In addition to being largely non-invasive, chemical peels are effective at addressing a wide range of skin conditions, which include sun damage, pigmentation, acne, uneven texture, rough texture, and uneven skin tone.
Depending on your goals and your skin’s unique needs, our medical team will recommend the treatment plan that is best suited for you.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE CHEMICAL PEEL PROCEDURE?
The chemical peel process is fairly straightforward. During your appointment, your peel will be applied to your face and left to extract the damaged, outer layers of skin. Chemical peels are classified as either light, medium or deep, and the depth of your peel will determine the length of time the solution is left to sit. Once your peel is complete, the solution will be washed off and we will apply a soothing neutralizer to the skin.
Chemical peels are often combined with additional cosmetic dermatology procedures to achieve the most comprehensive rejuvenation possible. During your consultation, our team will advise you on which additional procedures may be helpful in reviving the look of your skin.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTERWARD MY CHEMICAL PEEL?
In the days* following your chemical peel, you can expect some light flaking and peeling. You may also experience some redness, especially from deeper peels. During this healing process, it is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight. The length of healing will vary, depending on the type of peel used. However, once your healing is complete, you will be able to appreciate your impressive results*.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR CHEMICAL PEELS?
Many patients who have uneven skin tone, damaged surface-layer skin, and other skin concerns are excellent candidates for a chemical peel. However, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation. This will provide you with the time you need to speak with our team and create a plan to achieve your results*.
