Younger, Healthier Skin

This popular cosmetic treatment involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layer to peel off. The result is smoother, more even-toned skin that looks and feels younger. Also known as a “skin peel,” this procedure can treat many skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.

A wide variety of chemical peel solutions are typically divided into light, medium, and deep chemical peeling agents. Light peels produce smoother, brighter-looking skin.

Results with these peels are usually improved by performing a series of peels over time. During treatment, you will notice an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, and unwanted pigment. You may also see an improvement in acne if your skin is prone to breakouts.

More dramatic results can be achieved with medium to deep peels but require a more intense recovery. These can treat deeper lines and wrinkles, severely sun-damaged skin, and even pre-cancerous growths.

How much does a chemical peel cost?

The cost varies depending on the type of chemical peel procedure, the number of treatments needed, the areas of concern, and the patient’s specific goals. Chemical peels tend to offer a more cost-effective option when compared to other resurfacing procedures like laser resurfacing.

Are there any associated risks with chemical peels?

Skin resurfacing with chemical peels removes the outer layers of skin and can cause some side effects, including redness, itching, and swelling. The milder the peel, the less risk associated with the procedure.

Dr. Thompson has had specific training with chemical peeling agents, and all treatments he offers are safe. It is vital to seek a specialist with experience and training using chemical peels to avoid unnecessary injury.

Are the results permanent?

Results can be dramatic and long-lasting; however, the natural aging process will continue after treatment, and you may develop new lines or pigmentation over time. Proper sun protection will help preserve results over a longer period of time.

Your Initial Consultation 

To ensure a successful chemical peel procedure, it's crucial to have all your questions answered beforehand. Dr. Will Thompson's Denver offices offer consultations where you can discuss your skin concerns and goals. During the consultation, the provider will ask about any specific skin issues you are experiencing, such as dryness, acne, or fine lines. Additionally, a skin assessment will be done to ensure no underlying issues may affect the procedure's safety or effectiveness. The primary goal of the consultation is to ensure that you feel heard and understood as you take the next step in your skincare journey with a chemical peel in Denver.

The Day of Your Procedure

Dr. Thompson typically performs the chemical peel procedure in the office setting. The treatment process varies somewhat based on the specific goals of the procedure. Light to medium-depth peels may produce a mild stinging sensation but typically do not require anesthesia. Dr. Thompson ensures all patients are comfortable during and after the procedure.

Recovery and Results

Recovery will vary based on which chemical peel solution is used. Mild peels will produce some redness, but patients can typically return to work or their routine immediately after treatment. Stronger peels may result in flaking, scaling, and swelling. This is expected and will resolve with time but may require one to two weeks of recovery. Many patients modify their activities to avoid certain social situations until their skin shows improvement and the redness has faded or can be concealed with makeup.
