Chemical Peel Reviews
"I'm so excited to have found a very knowledgeable, experienced Esthetician and beautiful clinic to help me with my less than flawless skin. I've been a sun lover and the down side to that is all of the little brown spots I've developed all over my face and now chest. I've been seeing Debbie for a little under 3 months and she has turned my skin AROUND! She is a fountain of knowledge and never in a pushy sales way. I've switch over to their product line and receive regular peels and laser and I can honestly say my skin is now on its way to flawless!!!"- F.D. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2015

"My skin has never looked better! I kept hearing people rave about how good Siobhan is with skin aesthetics, so I decided to make an appointment and sure enough.. SHE's AMAZING! She recommended chemical peels, put me on a skin care regimen?"- L. / Citysearch / Jul 27, 2010
"I'm so lucky i found the Gallery. There are so many to choose from, but I believe I've selected the best. The doc is knowledgable, approachable, tells you what to expect, offers suggestions without pressure. I've had the Ultherapy, skin rejuvenation, Botox, peels. My skin is great for a woman my age. My only wish, is that they had evening or weekend hours, for those of us who work, and can't always take off. I will continue my beauty regimen with the Gallery for a very longtime."- A.M. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2015
Types of Chemical Peels@headingTag>
Medium Depth Peels@headingTag>
A medium depth peel consists of Trichloroacetic acid (known as a TCA peel). It penetrates the skin more deeply than the superficial peel, with stronger effects. The trade-off, however, is a less comfortable procedure with a longer recovery time. This procedure also costs more than a superficial peel. Recovery can take a full week or longer.
A deep peel is the harshest of all chemical peels. It is also the most expensive and has the longest recovery. However, this peel, containing Phenol, does have a much stronger effect and can combat more persistent problems, like skin lesions and deep wrinkles. Deep chemical peels tend to bleach the top layer of the skin. Therefore, it is not recommended for darker skin tones. These are reserved for individuals with skin wrinkling around the lips, deep wrinkles from sun exposure and deeper scars.
During/After the Procedure@headingTag>
The process for applying a chemical peel is generally the same for each type, but will vary slightly depending on the level of solution being applied. Anesthesia is not used during this procedure. However, it may be considered for Phenol peels. First, the face is thoroughly cleaned. Then, the chemical agent is then brushed on to the skin. Patients will experience some mild stinging at this time. The face is then washed and a cool saline compress is applied to act as a neutralizer. Patients will need to wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure as much as possible.
The cost for a chemical peel will vary based depending on the type of treatment performed and the time and care provided during the treatment process. Patients can expect to pay between $125-$300 for a superficial chemical peel. Keep in mind, it is recommended that these be repeated monthly in order to maintain the results. A medium chemical peel will run between $1,000-$2,000. This process can be repeated every six months. Deep chemical peels are the most invasive and often require physician skill and pre-op and post-op medications. They run between $2,500-$6,000, but are long-lasting.

Chemical Peel FAQs@headingTag>
Does a Chemical Peel Hurt?@headingTag>
A chemical peel does not hurt. However, it may cause some discomfort. Most patients will feel tingling and a slight burning sensation, which will subside shortly after the procedure has been completed. Phenol peels result in a greater degree of discomfort, but the practitioner should plan for this before the procedure begins.
It is very common to combine a chemical peel with another procedure. Microdermabrasion is one such procedure that provide effective results when combined with a peel. This will be considered a combination program that can be repeated every six weeks.
How to Choose?@headingTag>
There are many alternatives to consider. Individuals looking to reduce fine lines, blotchiness and other mild skin conditions may benefit from a chemical peel, which removes dead skin cells and accelerates the generation of new skin. If deep wrinkles are the issue, a Phenol peel may help, but patients may also want to consider another treatment such as BOTOX or Dysport.
