What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are facial rejuvenation treatments that are similar to a facial. During a chemical peel, a carefully selected chemical solution is applied to the skin. This solution causes a controlled exfoliation of the skin, eliminating aged and damaged skin cells. Once the outer layers of skin are removed, healthier, brighter, and clearer skin is revealed. The chemical peel treatment is customized for each patient, and can vary in intensity. These treatments will be adjusted depending on your cosmetic concerns, which may include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Age spots or sun damage
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Enlarged pores
How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?
The cost of your chemical peel will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the type of peel performed and the number of treatments required to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.
What is the Chemical Peel Treatment Like?
Before the chemical peel treatment, your face will be cleansed. Then, your custom chemical peel solution will be applied to the skin. This may cause a tingling sensation, but most patients find the chemical peel treatment comfortable. The chemical peel solution will remain on the skin for a set amount of time. Some treatments only require a few minutes, while others may be worn home to be washed off later. The length of your treatment will depend on the type and strength of the chemical peel you are receiving.
What is Recovery Like After a Chemical Peel?
After a chemical peel, the recovery is quite similar to a sunburn. You may notice that your skin is red or sensitive immediately after your treatment. A few days later, your skin will begin to peel and flake off. During this time, you will need to avoid excessive sun exposure and other activities that can damage the newly revealed skin. However, most patients are able to resume all normal activities within a day or two.
What Results Can I Expect from Chemical Peels?
You will notice results from your chemical peel after the skin heals, which typically takes just one to two weeks. You should notice a rejuvenated appearance in the skin improvements in skin tone and texture. For some cosmetic concerns, such as skin damage and wrinkles, you may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will help you determine the type of peel and number of treatments that will be best for you.
