Chemical Peel FAQ

A chemical peel is ideal if you want to correct or reduce the appearance of skin conditions, such as acne scars, dark spots, dull or rough skin, as well as fine lines and sun damaged skin. Chemical peels are generally performed on facial skin. However, they can also be performed on your hands, neck, back, private/genital areas, underarms, elbows, legs, or other areas of your body. Most peels are approved for adults who are in good health overall, but some are safe for patients as young as 13 years of age. If you are taking Accutane or using Retin-A, please schedule an initial consultation to discuss your options.
There are numerous types of chemical peel solutions available and each of them vary in composition and strength. Alpha hydroxy acid, carbolic acid, phenol, retinol, and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) are a few of the most common chemical formulas available. Some of them only remove the top layer of the skin, but others go further into deeper layers of skin. Although they have a bigger impact on overall skin improvement, stronger chemical peels are considered more invasive, and you may need more time recovering.
Chemical peel treatments generally take 30 to 60 minutes at Joie De Vivre MedSpa of Chattanooga, depending on the areas being treated. Some peels require topical anesthesia (numbing cream) while others do not. We will thoroughly cleanse your face and then apply the chemical solution to the surface of your skin; at which time you may feel a hot sensation or mild stinging. Some peels can be neutralized in the office and others do not need neutralizing and you will be sent home with the chemical formulation on your skin. You will receive home skin care instructions well as follow up appointment and recommendations for skin care products to help optimize the peel’s results.
Some peels will result in some skin peeling but others have minimal if any peeling. Skin peeling can start two to four days after receiving the treatment and skin will look like it was windburned or sunburned. The peeling process removes the damaged and older top layer of your skin, revealing the healthier, smoother-looking skin that is underneath. Recovering from a chemical peel can take anywhere between one to 10 days depending on the strength of the treatment received. During the recovery period, your skin may feel slightly warm or tender and it will be sensitive to the sun. A sunblock is highly recommended, especially during the first few weeks after each treatment.
How much your chemical peel costs will depend on the type of solution that is chosen as well as other factors related to your specific treatment. Multiple treatments are often recommended and it is more cost-effective to buy the packages recommended for better and longer-lasting results. An in-person or virtual consultation is recommended to go over the details and discuss recommendations for the best treatment plan addressing your concerns and goals. At Joie De Vivre MedSpa of Chattanooga we accept all major credit cards, checks, cash, as well as the option to finance through Care Credit. We truly look forward to serving your skin care needs to help you achieve the best results.
