It’s no secret that many cosmetic solutions exist for treating facial concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and acne scarring. The treatments offer varying degrees of success, but one of the most popular and most effective solutions is a chemical peel.
A chemical peel is a form of skin rejuvenation that exfoliates the skin using safe medical-grade chemicals. At Renew MD, our highly-trained staff administers chemical peels tailored to the exclusive needs of each client.
Chemical Peel Overview
When you opt for a chemical peel, a unique chemical solution gets applied to your face that improves the texture and tone of your skin’s appearance by removing the damaged outermost superficial layers.
The process begins with one of our expert team members applying a special degreaser to your face to remove any pollutants or oils from the skin. Next, the chemical solution gets applied and stays on your face for around five minutes.
You may feel some mild stinging during the process, but it’s only a temporary feeling, and it goes away after a few minutes. Afterward, the chemical peel gets washed off or neutralized.
We offer glycolic, beta, and lactic, VI and Prodigy Peels at Renew MD, depending on your needs and specific cosmetic goals. A chemical peel is a practical cosmetic solution for treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and acne scarring.
Chemical peels are also good at treating hyperpigmentation and skin damaged by over-exposure to the sun.
Average Cost of Chemical Peels
The average cost of a chemical peel is around $289, according to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). But, what might your chemical peel cost?
As you can imagine, the cost of a chemical peel will be influenced by various factors. Examples include the facial cosmetic concerns you wish to address, whether you need more than one chemical peel, and if you have other simultaneous cosmetic treatments.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
When it comes to skin rejuvenation, a chemical peel offers a multitude of benefits. First, a chemical peel is non-invasive. There’s no surgery involved, and it does not require anesthesia.
Secondly, there’s the speed of the procedure to consider. A chemical peel takes just 60 minutes to administer, on average. There is minimal discomfort compared to alternative treatments, and only a few days of downtime needed for optimal results.
Lastly, a chemical peel results in a more youthful appearance, with skin looking rejuvenated and free of pollutants, blemishes, and light wrinkles and fine lines.
Am I a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?
You could be a candidate for a chemical peel if you’re unhappy with your facial appearance and want a non-surgical cosmetic solution. Chemical peels are safe treatments, and the risk of infections or scarring is extremely rare.
Examples of perfect candidates include people who have scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin or acne that don’t otherwise have skin conditions.
