Chemical Peels in Savannah, GA
We often recommend chemical peel treatments to patients who are looking to improve skin quality without any invasive or particularly aggressive techniques. These controlled exfoliation treatments can restore the skin, enhancing tone and texture. Savannah Plastic Surgery offers a range of chemical peel treatments to help our patients in Savannah and the surrounding areas of Chatham County, GA, achieve their cosmetic goals.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are a type of facial treatment that use a more aggressive topical solution on the skin. The purpose of a chemical peel is to cause controlled exfoliation, eliminating aged, damaged, or otherwise imperfect skin from the surface. This process will remove imperfections and allow the body to produce healthier, brighter skin. Chemical peels are customizable treatments that can vary in strength depending on the skin care needs and treatment goals of the patient. Therefore, the chemical peel treatment is suitable for most patients. There are even treatment options for those with sensitive skin. With the chemical peel treatment, we can address the following skin concerns:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin texture
- And more
How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?
The cost of chemical peel treatments at Savannah Plastic Surgery can range from $100 to $750. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the number of treatment sessions necessary to achieve those goals. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time. To learn more about our insurance policies or your payment options, please refer to our financing and insurance page.
What is the Chemical Peel Treatment Like?
The chemical peel treatment is performed in-office and begins much like a facial, with the skin being cleansed. Then, we will apply the chemical solution onto your skin. The strength of this solution will vary depending on your treatment goals, and will be discussed with you beforehand. Once the chemical solution is applied to the skin, it will rest on the skin for a set amount of time to complete the desired amount of exfoliation. Once the appropriate amount of time has passed, we will cleanse the skin of the chemical solution and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Chemical Peel Recovery Like?
The recovery process following a chemical peel will vary depending on the intensity of treatment. Following your treatment, you may experience red, dry, or sensitive skin. This is a natural effect of the chemical peel treatment, and it will cause the skin to peel and flake within a few days of treatment. This may continue for multiple days. After one to two weeks, the skin should no longer be peeling, and it will begin to heal and reveal brighter, healthier skin. During this process, it is important to protect the skin from anything that might irritate it and hinder the healing process, such as sun damage, particularly hot water and certain skin care products.
What Chemical Peel Results Can I Expect?
The results from your chemical peel treatment will become visible as the skin heals. Most patients notice these results within a few weeks of treatment, and enjoy continued improvements in their results for an additional few months. If you are receiving chemical peel treatments to address deep skin concerns such as acne scarring, wrinkles or similar conditions, you may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve your desired results. In other cases, we may recommend regular chemical peel treatments to maintain the results of the procedure.
