What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are medical-grade exfoliating treatments that use chemical solutions to peel off the outermost layers of skin. When administered by a dermatologist, chemical peels can offer far greater cosmetic and skin health benefits than at-home alternatives. Chemical peels are highly customizable, with different treatments offering different ingredients and varying strengths. This means that patients with a range of skin types and skin concerns will have access to a chemical peel treatment that is suitable for their needs.
What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are powerful exfoliation treatments, which can address signs of aging, skin damage, and skin imperfections of many types. Additional benefits include:
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces enlarged pores
- Reduces scarring, including acne scars
How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?
The cost of chemical peel treatments at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the type of peel performed and the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. As cosmetic treatments, chemical peels are typically not covered by health insurance. This means you will be responsible for the full cost of your treatment. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and provide the exact costs associated with your treatment.
What are Chemical Peel Treatments Like?
Chemical peel treatments begin with a gentle cleansing to eliminate oils and debris from the skin. Then, the chemical peel solution will be applied to the skin, which is customized based on the patient’s skin type and treatment needs. Patients may experience a warm or tingling sensation during the chemical peel as it works to exfoliate the outer layers of skin. Depending on the strength of the chemical peel, we may rinse it off in-office after a short period of time, or we may advise you to wear the chemical peel home and rinse it off later.

Is There Any Downtime After Chemical Peels?
The downtime that follows your chemical peel treatment will vary depending on the strength of the peel. In most cases, patients can expect some redness and sensitivity in the skin immediately following their chemical peel. In the following days, the skin will begin to flake and peel off. After this phase, new, healthy skin will become visible and you will start noticing the results of the chemical peel treatment. During this recovery process, patients are advised to protect the skin from heat, sun exposure and aggressive skincare products. Detailed instructions for aftercare will be provided upon conclusion of the procedure.
What Results Can I Expect from Chemical Peels?
Within a few weeks of your chemical peel, healthier skin should be visible. At this time, patients should notice cosmetic improvements through the reduction of signs of aging, skin damage and other imperfections. However, some patients may require multiple chemical peel treatments to achieve the best results. When appropriate, we’ll help you schedule a series of chemical peel treatments to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
