Poet Thomas Nashe once wrote, “Beauty is but a flower, which wrinkles will devour.” While technically the sentiment is true, you don’t have to let wrinkles, blemishes, and signs of aging take away from your beauty. One effective tool in the battle against aging is a chemical peel. But are the results worth the chemical peel cost?
Chemical Peel Cost
Chemical peels can be effective for a variety of skin conditions and cosmetic improvements and are one of the most affordable procedures.
The most popular peels are the superficial chemical peels which use either alpha hydroxy acid such as glycolic acid or retinol. Superficial peels will cost anywhere from approximately $90-$200 per peel. A series of 4-6 peels is recommended. Many clinics will package the peels in a series and provide discounts when you purchase the peel package.
Deeper chemical peels, including TCA are more costly as usually only 1 peel is required. They incur more downtime in which to heal. These peels should only be performed by licensed physicians and can range from $400 – 700.
Beauty is More Than Skin Deep
Chemical peels work to improve cell turnover, stimulate new collagen, elasticity in tissues and improve the dermal matrix. They do this by inducing subclinical injury to promote healing and through exfoliation. This provides improvement in texture, clarity and smoothness of the skin, providing a healthier, more youthful appearance. Your skin will regain that “natural, youthful glow” and reduce the signs of aging, with these simple outpatient treatments.
Virtually everyone can benefit from chemical peels as they are affordable and provide a great variety of benefits, including improvement in:
- Fine lines and deeper wrinkles
- Rosacea, with decreased overall skin redness
- Age spots, freckles and other discolorations
- Improving barrier function of the skin, causing the skin to become less sensitive and more tolerant
- Overall skin health
