What Is A Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel, also known as chemexfoliation or derma peeling, uses a chemical solution to improve the appearance of your skin. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to your skin, which causes trauma or injury to your skin’s layers. The skin layers eventually peel off revealing more youthful skin. The new skin is usually smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles, has a more even color and is brighter in complexion.

How Much Do You Charge for Chemical Peel?

Chemical treatment costs vary and must be personalized to ensure that an appropriate treatment plan is developed to help you achieve your goals. In most cases, Chemical peels costs are affordable, due to the popularity packaging of one or more peels in a series. If you’d like a more in-depth estimate of how much treatment would cost for your specific needs, call or text us at Jurney Med Spa to schedule a custom consultation with our Nurse Practitioner or one of our staff.

Is A Superfical Chemical Peel Right for Me?

Generally, superficial peels can be used on all skin types. However, if you have a darker skin tone, you have a greater risk of experiencing a darkening of your skin after treatment. This condition is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. If you have a naturally darker skin tone, you may want to get the advice of your dermatologist about other less aggressive treatments to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Chemical peeling may also not be recommended if you:

  • Have a history of abnormal skin scarring.

  • Have extra coloring in your scars.

  • Have skin conditions or take medications that make your skin more sensitive.

  • Can't stay out of the sun for the healing period.

How is a Chemical Peel Given?

A chemical peel can be performed here at our Med Spa as an outpatient procedure. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed with an agent that removes excess oils, while your eyes and hair are protected. A chemical solution is then applied to your skin. Chemical solutions typically used include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol). The different types of chemicals cause a controlled injury, each penetrating through to a different skin depth, and then peeling away to reveal a new layer of skin. 

The different chemical solutions provide different results. The choice of a chemical depends on your goal. You will work with your dermatologist to determine the depth of your peel.

  • A Superficial  (“BRIGHT”) chemical peel provides subtle improvement over time and is often done in a series. The outermost layer of skin is removed. This choice may be best if you have fine wrinkling, acne, uneven skin coloring, or dry, rough sun-damaged skin to help promote a healthy glow.

What is Recovery Like After A Chemical Peel?

Recovery from this type of peel may be within hours to a few days but with little to no downtime.  If you’ve had a light chemical peel:

  • Expect a sunburn-like reaction to occur after your peel, meaning you’ll see redness followed by scaling that lasts between three and seven days. 

  • Apply lotion or cream as directed until your skin heals. After your skin heals, apply daily sunscreen.

  • You can wear makeup immediately after treatment or the next day.

  • Additional peels may be repeated every two to five weeks until you achieve your desired results. Typically three to five peels are needed to achieve your goal.
