Chemical Peels

Sometimes skincare products alone aren’t enough to achieve glowing, flawless skin. Chemical Peels offer extra exfoliation that you simply cannot achieve with at-home skincare. A Chemical peel solution improves the skin’s texture by eliminating the dead skin cells and encouraging rapid cell turnover to reveal the healthier skin cells underneath. Let’s explore the basics of this tried and true skin treatment and help you achieve firmer, more elastic, and more youthful-looking skin!

What Are Chemical Peels?

A Chemical Peel is an exfoliating solution that removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin underneath. The Chemical peel solution is applied to the face in a controlled manner by skilled Licensed Estheticians, who monitor you while it sits on the skin for a predetermined amount of time before removing. The result? Smoother, brighter, more even-toned skin.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Over time, the buildup of oil, debris, and dirt in the pores can leave skin dull and damaged. The active ingredient in Chemical peels is an acid such as glycolic or salicylic acid. Once applied to the skin, these acids dissolve the bonds between dead skin cells, allowing them to slough off or “peel” the top layer of the skin away. As new skin cells grow and reach the surface, they reveal a fresh complexion, free from blemishes and fine lines. It’s a one-stop-shop treatment perfect for total skin revitalization without fancy devices or procedures.

The Benefits of Chemical Peels

Tackle Multiple Problems in One Treatment

Chemical peels can help improve acne, reduce scarring and fine lines, even out hyperpigmentation, and give your overall complexion a more youthful appearance. Unlike other treatments that only address one concern at a time, Chemical peels are an incredibly versatile solution.

Boost Collagen Production

Collagen is responsible for keeping our skin firm and plump, but our bodies produce less of this protein as we age. With regular Chemical peel treatments, you can stimulate collagen growth which will lead to firmer and smoother-looking skin.

Customizable Treatments

Because Chemical Peels are simply solutions applied to the skin, they are highly customizable to each patient. Our Licensed Estheticians can spot-treat certain problem areas with a more intense treatment or layer different solutions to achieve the desired result.

What Are the Different Types of Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels come in different strengths and formulations, ranging from superficial peels that only penetrate the surface layers to deep peels that can penetrate farther into the skin and provide more advanced rejuvenation benefits. There are three main types of Chemical Peels: superficial, medium-depth, and deep Chemical peels.

Superficial peels: Superficial peels are usually performed using mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta-hydroxy acid (BHA). They peel away only the damaged outer layers of the epidermis. Superficial Chemical peels are ideal for those with minor skin concerns such as uneven texture and pigmentation.

Medium peels: Medium peels are usually performed using glycolic or trichloroacetic acid. They penetrate the epidermis and the dermis, promoting higher cell turnover and collagen production to transform the skin. Medium-depth Chemical peels may help improve moderate acne scars and deeper pigment issues such as melasma.

Deep peels: Deep peels produce the most dramatic improvements but require an extended recovery time. This peel type is not safe for all skin types. Deep peels smooth out deep lines, severe acne scars, and considerable sun damage.

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?

The cost of a Chemical Peel can vary depending on location, provider expertise, the solution used, the depth of the peel, and more. Generally, you can expect to pay between $150 and $300 per treatment. You may also find discounts if you purchase a package of Chemical Peels. Additionally, when evaluating cost-effectiveness, one must factor in that regular Chemical peels have been shown to help slow down visible signs of aging over time – so by investing in your skin with this treatment now, you could potentially save money on other anti-aging measures down the road!


Someone with significant scarring or hyperpigmentation may require more frequent Chemical peels than someone who wants a general skin refresh. Typically, patients get a series of 3-6 peels spaced out over several months
It often depends on the strength and depth of the Chemical peel; however, some level of visible exfoliation usually occurs for 4-7 days as dead skin cells shed away, revealing healthier glowing new skin underneath.

Each person’s experience is unique and determined by factors such as individual health, hormonal balance, diet, sun exposure, etc. It’s common to start seeing results after the second session, but full effects can take up to six weeks concluding a Chemical Peel series.
