What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. Chemical peels can improve your skin’s appearance. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel. The new, regenerated skin may be smoother and less wrinkled.

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?

Every patient has unique needs, and your cost will vary accordingly and will be discussed during your consultation. We accept all forms of payment, including credit cards and checks.

Why Choose Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels create smaller, tighter pores, as well as reduce your skin’s oiliness, helping to make your skin look and feel softer. One of the quickest cosmetic treatments that can produce real results is a chemical peel.

Who is a Candidate for Chemical Peels?

If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, chemical peel treatments may help by removing dead skin. Chemical peels for the face use a chemical solution to smooth and improve your skin’s texture by removing damage. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This smooths the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers and removing superficial wrinkles.

What is the Procedure for Chemical Peels?

In this treatment, a chemical solution is skillfully applied to your skin, which in succeeding days will make it “blister” and eventually peel off. During your consultation, Dr. Dawli will discuss the types of chemical peels that are available, and what you can expect from your treatment and in the days following.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many benefits to getting regular chemical peels, including:

  • Improving uneven skin tone and texture
  • Boosting the body’s natural production of collagen
  • Reducing brown spots and sun damage
  • Helping improve acne breakouts and acne scarring
  • Decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face
The amount of time it will take to recover from your chemical peel treatment really depends on the depth of your chemical peel. Peeling, flaking and redness take about seven to 10 days to subside after a light chemical peel, however, it may take up to 14 days to subside with a deep chemical peel. Talk to Dr. Dawli about which chemical peel is right for you based on your preferred amount of downtime and desired results.
Yes, chemical peels are a great way for patients to exfoliate and resurface their skin if they wish to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. It’s important to follow Dr. Dawli’s recommendations about how often you should receive chemical peels, as getting them too often or too close together may become unsafe.
Yes, a chemical peel can remove any hyperpigmentation or skin discoloration in your treated areas. This is because a chemical peel gently exfoliates and resurfaces the treated areas, taking off layers of dead cells on the skin’s surface and revealing the fresh, new skin underneath. Chemical peels don’t have to just be for your face. A chemical peel can also be used to treat the skin on the neck, chest and other areas of the body as well.
How often you should receive a chemical peel ultimately depends on your skin’s current condition and the intensity of the peel you are receiving. As a general rule of thumb, Dr. Dawli advises you should not receive more than one light chemical peel every four to six weeks. However, this time frame may vary depending on your skin’s sensitivity or if you have moderate to severe acne.
