There are many benefits that chemical peels offer, and the cost of receiving one can be pretty reasonable.
Smoother & Better Exfoliated Skin
Many people seek chemical peel treatment because they want smoother skin with an even tone and texture. Chemical peels will leave the skin silkier and even-toned and can better able to absorb skincare products. Skin that has undergone a chemical peel will be rid of dead cells, allowing better penetration of these products.
Helps Minimize Damage from the Sun and Hyperpigmentation
Your skin can take a beating from the sun. Skin can suffer from sunspots, dark spots, freckles, and pigmentation problems due to sun exposure. Mild chemical peels can help with these issues while also reducing some blotchiness and lines (also sun-caused). Your skin will look younger than ever.
Medical studies conducted show that some forms of chemical peels can even help reverse a form of hyperpigmentation disorder called melasma, which severely impacts an individual’s self-esteem and life quality.
Reduction in Acne Marks and Blemishes
Chemical peels can help control breakouts of acne while reducing scarring from previous blemishes. It is accomplished through the unclogging of pores, the removal of surface blackheads, and the application of components that help fade pimple marks. When looking into chemical peels to treat acne and acne scarring, ask about salicylic acid and lactic acid peels.
The Cost of a Chemical Peel
The cost of a chemical peel changes depending on the treatment you receive. You can get chemical peels over the counter, but the costs discussed here will be for an in-office peel provided by a dermatologist. On average, you could be looking anywhere from 500 to 700 dollars for treatment, but (for more mild peels) you could find one for as low as $150 to $200. The cost may seem a bit steep, but a chemical peel is reasonably priced compared to laser skin treatments.
