Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing the outermost layers and promoting the growth of newer, smoother skin. Many facial skin conditions can be treated at the same time with a peel. Dr. Derderian may recommend a chemical peel for patients whose goals are to brighten their skin, erase sun damage, reduce fine lines, and eliminate freckles and age spots, or smooth acne scars.

What is Involved in a Chemical Peel?

Prior to your procedure you may be asked to engage in an in-depth skin-cleansing regimen. Dr. Derderian will select the appropriate strength and mixture of chemicals for your peel depending on your skin type and whether the procedure is light, medium or deep. The solution is applied to the treatment area, and begins gently peeling away your skin. You may experience temperature swings in the face, or a stinging sensation for a few minutes, but will be carefully monitored at all times.

What to Expect After a Chemical Peel

After the peel, avoid sun exposure and apply sunblock whenever you go outside. You can begin applying makeup again about seven days after the procedure. Depending on the intensity of your peel, you might experience redness or light scaling, possible swelling or blisters, or continued peeling. If any of these conditions are severe, contact our office immediately to discuss the next steps you can take.

How Much do Chemical Peels Cost?

Because of the varied needs of each patient, it is difficult to offer an advance cost quotation for chemical peels. The cost of your procedure is dependent on the current condition of your skin, as well as the desired outcome you wish to achieve. You will receive a written cost quotation during your consultation.
