Best Treatment for Acne Scars, Hyperpigmentation & Wrinkles

Everyone dream of a spotless, flawless complexion which is just lying under the surface of outer layer of our skin.

What is Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is one of the most minimally invasive method of improving the nature or appearance of facial skin. The method can be used to smoothen the texture of the skin, by causing controlled destruction of the top most layer of the skin resulting in a fresher and healthier looking skin.It is important to note that the chemicals peels are not exclusively for the face, and can be used for other parts of the body too, especially the hands, neck and back.

However, a controlled destruction of epidermis is there so as to avoid excessive damage to skin. Destruction of epidermis leads to the exfoliation and removal of superficial lesions on the skin followed by the regeneration of new epidermal & dermal tissues.

Cost of Chemical Peels

Chemical peel is a sensitive process which needs precision while doing procedure. There are few factors which determine the cost of the chemical peel treatment.

Type of Peel
The type of peel used for the treatment determines the cost of treatment. The price of light chemical peel is less as compared to the deep chemical peel. There are medium chemical peels also which are of average cost.
Number of Sessions
Number of sessions also determines the cost of treatment. If less number of treatments will be required, then the overall cost will be less but if numbers of sessions are more, cost will rise.
Standard of Clinic
If you are getting your treatment from a well reputed clinic by trained and skilled cosmetologist, your treatment cost may rise.
Location of Clinic
Location or cost of living also contributes to the cost of treatment. If you are living in a metro city or city having high cost of living, this will raise the treatment cost.
Area and Nature
The surface area of the skin for treatment also affects the cost of treatment. Cost of face treatment will be different from the cost for back or other body parts. If treatment demands for only minor skin imperfections, basic chemical peel treatment will be sufficient which costs less but if severe skin imperfections are to be treated then deep peels will be required which will charge more.
After your chemical peel treatment, if there will be need of some after care treatments for effective results, then these can add up to the cost of treatment.

4 Side effects of Chemical Peel Treatment

There are very common side effects after the chemical peel treatment. But these side effects can be managed or treated easily with precautions. Just consult with your doctor if you face any of the side effects.

Dry Skin

Due to the chemical peel, your skin may become dry. But with the help of regular moisturizing, you can get rid of dry skin. Drink plenty of water and try to keep your body hydrated.


Chemical peel is about peeling off your dead skin. So if you see flakes on your skin or face, don’t get scared. It is a normal process and your new layer of skin will be visible within few days of flaking.


You may see red patches on the skin after the chemical peel procedure. As your outer layer of skin has undergone the chemical procedure, you might suffer from redness but it will not last long.


If you are going for chemical peel treatment by a specialized dermatologist, you may not have to face this. This is very rare side effect of chemical peel.

Before, During & After Chemical Peels

What you should keep in mind before going for a Chemical Peel Treatment? While most people would be thrilled by the idea of all that a chemical peel can do for facial skin, not everyone can be considered a worthy enough candidate for the procedure. Your doctor will have to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the same and in order to do this, he or she will have to ascertain that you:

When a person approaches a doctor with the intention of getting a chemical peel, there will be a fair few steps involved.

These would include:

  • Why you want to get a Chemical Peel and whether you have realistic expectations from the Procedure
  • Whether you have any medical conditions, allergies or prior surgeries
  • Your alcohol consumption and smoking habits
  • Whether you are on any medications, vitamins or herbal supplements

Your doctor might also ask you to undergo a few medical tests and checks, to ensure that you are fit to undergo a chemical peel. You will also be made to understand the possible risks and side effects, so that you are able to make a fully informed decision.

This would also be a good time to have all your doubts and queries clarified and you should not feel embarrassed or ashamed to ask anything.


What you can Experience during the Chemical Peel Procedure?

Before a chemical peel is actually started, your face will be cleaned thoroughly. If you are opting for a deep chemical peel, then you will be given an anaesthetic or mild sedation, because there could be some pain involved. The pre-prepared chemical solution will then be brushed onto your skin and allowed to do its work. Timing is crucial, which is why you should get the treatment only from a reputed clinic or salon. There could be some tingling, burning or itching sensation and all these are considered normal.

Depending on the type of chemical peel you have opted for, your doctor will either, simply wash off the peel, use a saline compress or slather your skin with ointment. If you have undergone a deep chemical peel, chances are that your skin will be dressed and the ointment will have to be left untouched for a day.


What are the benefits that you can expect after the chemical peel treatment?

Once the procedure has been completed, you are bound to feel a little itching, irritation or redness, but all of these are normal and will disappear in a few days. You will be given medication to apply on your skin, which will help reduce the redness or irritation and also help with the possible pain. There is a chance of infection or hyper-pigmentation and if you notice either, it would be best that you meet a doctor immediately. You will be asked to avoid makeup for a few days, because your skin will require time to heal. You will also be asked to apply a gentle moisturizer as well as sunscreen.

Questions Asked By The Patients


Will I Experience Any Side Effects?

Most people have felt a sense of burning, itching, irritation, swelling or redness, but all of these are normal and tend to disappear in a few days.

Will A Chemical Peel Help My Skin?

That is the whole idea – when the peel is done by a professional and with the right chemicals, it should peel away the damaged cells, revealing the healthier and smoother skin.

What Is The Recovery Time For A Chemical Peel?

The procedure is generally done on an outpatient basis, which means that you should be able to return home the same day. However, your skin will now be extra sensitive for a few days, which means that you will have to take extra care, such as applying gentle moisturiser and sunscreen. Your skin should be ready and recovered in about 10 days’ time.

How Many Treatments Will I Require?

This is something that is dependent on your skin – how unkempt it is or how tired it is will decide how many sessions you will need. This is a decision that your doctor will take for you.

What Do Chemical Peels Do?

Chemical peels help to resurface the skin and thus removing superficial layers of the skin. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top skin layer and improve skin problems like hyper-pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.
