About Chemical Peels

Price List

Chemical peel brings about a significant improvement in skin rejuvenation. In this procedure a low concentration of the peeling agent is mixed with a special base prior to its application. Application of the peeling solution on the skin initiates the peeling process. This causes the topmost (dead layer of the skin) to slowly peel off. In a few weeks a healthier skin replaces the old skin.

Why would I want to have a CHEMICAL PEEL done?

A chemical peel is done to remove fine lines and wrinkles and to even out your skin tone, leaving you with younger looking smoother skin. A peel can be done over the entire face or just specific areas. It does not replace a face-lift as it won't eliminate sagging skin, but many patients benefit from a combination of the two procedures. It can also be done over the arms, hands, and chest. It generally is not as strong as laser-brasion, but there is less recovery time for the skin after the procedure.

What are the different CHEMICAL PEELS available?

Glycolic Acid and TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid), and Jessner, are the most common peel solutions available today.

The Glycolic Acid peel is a light to heavy peel which can be repeated every two weeks for several months if desired. This peel has almost no recovery time so it is perfect for the patient who needs to return to normal activities immediately.

A stronger TCA Chemical Peel can also be done for the treatment of deeper wrinkles and to reduce the lines around the lower eyelids and lips. This peel can be done alone or at the same time as other plastic surgery procedures such as a face-lift or eyelid surgery.

All three peels result in the reduction of fine wrinkles, a more even skin tone and younger looking skin. The deeper the peel, the more dramatic the result.

How long is a CHEMICAL PEEL procedure?

This procedure takes between 15 minutes and 1 hour depending on how much is being peeled.

What will I experience in the days following a CHEMICAL PEEL?

Following a Glycolic Acid Peel, you will experience mild pinkness similar to a mild sunburn for a day or so.

The Jessner Peel, and the TCA chemical peel are followed by crusting which will last up to 10 days.
