Chemical peels are a type of cosmetic procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the face, causing the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Long-lasting dermal peel treatments are offered at LCS Medspa by Dr. Melanie Carreon and her qualified staff. Fine lines, wrinkles, scars, sun spots, and dark patches can all be minimized with chemical peels. A chemical peel is often referred to as derma peeling.

Chemical peels, also known as dermapeeling, use a specialized chemical solution applied to targeted areas to improve the texture and overall appearance of your skin.
This solution causes controlled trauma to the top layers of the skin, allowing the damaged skin to peel away and allowing healthier skin to take its place. The result is a more even skin tone, a brighter complexion, and fewer lines and wrinkles.

Yes! Chemical peels are used to improve the tone and texture of your skin and can also be used to treat certain skin conditions. They are often used on the face, neck, and hands to help expose fresher, more vibrant skin. They also help to reduce or improve:
– Fine lines, especially those under your eyes or around your mouth
– Certain types of acne
– Mild scarring
– Age spots
– Liver spots
– Uneven skin coloring
– Rough skin, scaly patches, dull complexion
– Dark patches of skin (melasma)
There are different levels of chemical peels, ranging from light to deep. It’s important to work with your dermatologist or skin specialist to determine which depth and intensity of peel is right for you.
Chemical peels vary in terms of depth and intensity, and recovery times will fluctuate depending on what type of peel you and your dermatologist agree upon.
If you go for a deep peel, you should be prepared to potentially give up tanning permanently as prolonged sun/UV exposure after this treatment is highly discouraged.
In addition, you should be aware that there are some common side effects associated with chemical peels, including temporary redness, dryness, stinging or burning, and swelling.
Less common but more severe side effects from a chemical peel are:
– Permanent darkening or lightening of the skin color, especially in people with darker skin
– Heart, liver, or kidney damage
It’s important to talk to your performing specialist about any skin or medical conditions that you have before treatment to safeguard your health. The procedure, aftercare, and all benefits and potential side effects should be reviewed with your dermatologist before any service is carried out.
Pre-care and after-care are an important part of ensuring that you get the results you’re looking for from a chemical peel.
Before your chemical peel, adhere to the following:
– Apply any topical products suggested by your doctor as instructed
– Avoid tanning and prolonged sun exposure two weeks prior to your treatment date
– Avoid using any products containing retinoids 1-2 weeks before treatment
– Ensure peel areas are free from any open sores, lesions, or skin infections. If you notice any of these things, contact your treatment provider as soon as possible as you’ll likely need to reschedule your appointment.
– Take any prescribed oral antibiotics or oral antiviral medicine at least 24 hours before your treatment.
After a chemical peel, you should expect your skin to be red, irritated, tight, or swollen. It’s important that you avoid picking, rubbing or scratching your skin while it heals.
Equally as important, you also want to protect your fresh skin from direct sunlight or UV exposure.
Follow your doctor’s after-care instructions and recommendations regarding cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin. Note that it may take up to a couple of months for your skin color to return to normal and for you to observe the full results of your peel.
The cost of a chemical peel can vary on the depth of the treatment you need, the experience level of your provider, the area you live in, and if your insurance covers any portion of the procedure.
On average, light chemical peels cost between $150 and $250. Deep chemical peels, which are a more intensive form of treatment, typically cost around $3,000 – potentially more if you require anesthesia or an overnight stay at the clinic.
