How Much Can a Chemical Peel Cost?

It’s not uncommon for people to have darkened, aged, or damaged facial skin. While these conditions may not be life-threatening, having healthy and youthful skin can go a long way towards boosting your confidence and helping you to feel better about yourself. One of the best ways to improve your skin’s appearance is with a facial peel. Not only can a facial peel help to even out your skin tone, but it can also remove surface damage and the effects of acne.

How a Chemical Peel Can Work for You

A chemical peel is a process that uses special chemicals to remove the top layers of damaged skin. As the layers are removed, newer and healthier skin will be revealed. Getting regular chemical peels can help you save money in the long run because you will be less inclined to use other types of cosmetic treatments or more invasive surgical procedures. At Physician Skin Solutions, we offer several types of chemical peels to treat a variety of skin concerns.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Facial peels work best when they can help address several different problems at once. This is why people with discolored skin, scarring, or acne and those who have fine lines and wrinkles find facial peels beneficial. Assuming that you are in good health, you should be able to undergo a chemical peel safely.

How Much Does a Chemical Peel Cost?

According to Healthline, the average cost for a facial peel is around $150. There is no set or fixed price for a chemical peel because many factors will influence the final cost. These include the type of peel you choose and the experience of your provider. For example:

  • Light Chemical Peels: They gently exfoliate the outer layer of the facial skin by using mild acids such as alpha-hydroxy acid.
  • Medium Chemical Peels. They contain trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin.
  • Deep Chemical Peels. This type gets used for moderate to severe cases of skin damage.

What to Expect During Your Chemical Peel

Your clinician will apply the necessary chemicals using a cotton ball. The number of times you will have to undergo a facial peel depends on how much your skin needs to be treated. Some people may only need one treatment, while others may require several more treatments over the course of several weeks. After each facial peel, your skin will become red and swollen for several hours. Over the next few days, you may experience some mild peeling or flaking as well as sensitivity to light or even a slight sense of burning. These sensations are normal and should resolve within the first few days.

After your skin has peeled or flaked, it will go through a period of regeneration. This means that your new skin will be bright and smooth. You will feel confident and comfortable in your skin after your chemical peel. Depending on your symptoms and how your skin responds to treatment, you may need to have another chemical peel in about six months. You should avoid chemical peels if you are pregnant or have a history of keloids, problems with your skin healing after injury, heart issues, or cancer.

Is There Any Downtime After a Chemical Peel?

Even though you will be able to go back to your regular routine after a facial peel, you need to avoid strenuous activities such as aerobic workouts. Based on the area that the peel is treating and how much skin is affected, you may experience noticeable redness for several days. Slight peeling or flaking skin is also possible. You should also avoid spending a lot of time in the sun or tanning booths. It can take several weeks for your skin to fully recover after undergoing a chemical peel. Your skin may look mottled and patchy for about two weeks.

What Results Can I Expect From a Chemical Peel?

Depending on the type of chemical peel that you undergo, the results can be quite dramatic. The deeper and thicker your skin layer was before treatment, the more pronounced your results will be. A facial peel will diminish fine lines, acne scarring will fade, and discoloration will be reduced. You should also see an improvement in the texture of your skin.
