Chemical peels are great for many different skin types and can help treat various skin conditions. If you think you may be a good candidate for a chemical peel treatment, you’re probably wondering what the cost is going to be. The answer isn’t as straightforward as you may think.
The price of a chemical peel varies depending on the severity of the skin condition and your skin type. You may require only a couple of treatments, or you may have to get treated a dozen times. The main thing when looking at chemical peel costs is to not fall into the trap of going with the cheapest option. Working with a reputable professional is important when dealing with skin treatments.
Variables Affecting Chemical Peel Cost
A standard chemical peel will cost you around $300. This type of chemical peel is suitable for smoothing out minor wrinkles, fine lines and rough skin. The cost is reasonable, but you’ll likely need a few treatments before you see a very even skin tone.
Chemical peels with boosters can address acne blemishes, correct pigmentation issues and even out an uneven skin tone. This type will cost roughly $400 and will likely have to repeated every three months or so maintain clear skin.
A deep chemical is simply a myth and should not be confused with a Co2 Fractional Skin Resurfacing Treatment which is designed to be much more invasive than a chemical peel. Clients with serious skin damage or deep wrinkles typically elect to a series of skin resurfacing treatments followed by a chemical peel, but the recovery time is also much longer.
Why Chemical Peels Are Worth It
If you’ve had rough skin, bad acne or other skin blemishes for a good portion of your life, you owe it to yourself to look into a chemical peel facial. Estheticians can even add boosters to some chemical peels to treat existing acne! Talk with your esthetician about whether a chemical peel is right for you and decide if the cost is justified. Most patients believe the cost is well worth it when they look at themselves in the mirror afterward.
