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 cannot only be cost effective, but very efficient for a variety of skin conditions and cosmetic improvements. Virtually everyone can benefit from a chemical peel, from teenagers with acne or children with rough, bumpy skin, to people with wrinkled or pigmented skin, or simply to improve their overall skin health.
Chemical peels can range from a superficial peel that is typically performed in a series at monthly intervals, to a deeper chemical peel that can require 1-2 weeks of down time. 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, depending upon which peel and area of the country you live. A series of 4-6 peels is recommended. Many clinics will package the peels in a series and provide discounts if you purchase the peel package.
The deeper chemical peels can be more costly with slightly more risks, but with greater improvement with the one treatment. These can range anywhere from $400- $1000 per peel and should only be performed by licensed physicians. Deeper chemical peels typically use TCA in varying concentrations.
Beauty is More Than Skin Deep
Chemical peels increase the cell turnover of both the epidermis and dermis to 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 will provide 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 wrinkles
- Rosacea, with decreased overall skin redness
- Age spots, freckles and other discolorations
- The barrier function of the skin, causing the skin to become less sensitive and more tolerant
- Overall skin health
