How is a Chemical Peel Performed?
During your appointment at About Face & Body Medical Spa, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will clean your skin before applying the customized solution to the treatment areas. We will spread the solution onto your face and let it work for an appropriate length of time, which will be determined in your chemical peel consultation. Next, we will wash the peel off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients are encouraged to bring sunscreen and a hat to wear outside following the procedure to avoid sun exposure.
What should I expect after a chemical peel?
Based on the level of the peel you have, you should expect your skin to itch and peel from a few days to two or more weeks. Michelle or a member of her team will talk about methods to care for your face during your procedure. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches throughout the healing process, it's not good to peel the skin off. You could create scarring to your skin unless you leave it alone and let the skin heal on its own. Contact our Katy, TX office with any other questions or concerns that arise after your chemical peel treatment.
Chemical Peels FAQ
How much does a chemical peel cost?
One of our experienced team members will discuss your costs during your consultation as soon as they have created your chemical peel treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel will vary depending on the intensity you select. About Face & Body Medical Spa takes many payments methods, and you can ask about current specials on skin treatments like chemical peels. You may also consider buying a package of several chemical peel treatments.
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will vary based on your unique skin concerns and cosmetic goals. In your consultation with your provider, they can help you select which peel is right for your skin. Some factors you might consider are your general health, your skin type, how deep you want the peel to work, the time you can commit to recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. Initially, it is better to try a light peel and see how you like the results. After this, you and your team member can tweak your plan to discover the best type of peel for you.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Both dermabrasion and chemical peels are facial treatments that correct surface irregularities to make your skin a smoother appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion uses surgical tools (a rotating brush or shaving instrument ) to clear away the top layer of skin with a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel uses a caustic solution that is applied to your skin to dissolve dead and damaged skin cells. In your consultation, we will explain the pros and cons of both options and help you decide if dermabrasion or a chemical peel is best for your needs and goals.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Based on the chemicals selected, you might feel mild discomfort while it is actively treating your skin. If you get a lighter peel, you may notice some discomfort; however, this can be alleviated with a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are better for deeper damage and offer results that last a long time; however, they can be more uncomfortable. Numbing cream, medications, and ointments can be applied to minimize your discomfort during the chemical peel. A member of our team will discuss skin care after your chemical peel to extend your results.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
A chemical peel may be combined with another skin treatment at About Face & Body Medical Spa. During your consultation, be honest when describing your skin and cosmetic issues so we can create a comprehensive treatment plan to best address your goals. This may include an injectable treatment for wrinkles (like BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) along with your chemical peel to refresh your whole face.
