What are chemical peels?
For the highest quality results from chemical peel facial treatments, Imperial Dermatology provides you with multiple choices. Your individualized chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you healthier, smoother skin. At our Hollywood, FL office, our team offers chemical peel treatments that decrease skin irregularities such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead or damaged skin cells using a special solution on the skin, which causes the top layer to slough off. As your skin heals and begins to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should notice a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical way to make your complexion bright and may be appropriate for the neck and face.
Chemical Peels Reviews
"I can’t stop raving about Imperial Dermatology. From the moment you step in, I feel like I have entered a spa. A high end designed dermatologist office with competent staff and flexibility for appointments. Your experience at this clinic will have you coming back. My cystic acne prone skin is now controlled and with my series of chemical peels by Micah I am finally seeing myself for how I feel on the inside. It’s a journey and they keep you on track by recording the changes your face has been making. I am officially a loyal client and other competing dermatologists can’t compare to Dr Simona Bartos. Thank you guys for this amazing journey!"- J.Y. / Google / Sep 10, 2022

What Can I Expect from My Chemical Peel?
Your aesthetic treatment will begin when we get you settled into one of our comfortable treatment chairs and cleanse your face of any makeup, dirt, and other oils. From there, we'll begin your chemical peel. Your treatment will vary depending on the degree of the peel you receive. We are pleased to offer custom peels based on your particular needs and use PRX T33 (a non-peeling peel) and Perfect Derma Peel to provide you with stunning results. At the start of your chemical peel, we'll massage the chemical solution into your skin and let it sit for a pre-determined amount of time. We'll wash the solution off and apply a neutralizing agent to your skin. Depending on if you had a light, medium, or deep chemical peel, you can expect your skin to peel anywhere from a few days up to a few weeks. Once the dead and damaged skin flakes off, healthy, glowing skin will be revealed.
You may experience redness, swelling, and irritation after your treatment. This is normal and should subside on its own. When you leave our office, you can continue your day. Keep in mind, however, that your side effects may be greater and you may need to go home and relax after a deep chemical peel. It's important to keep in mind that as your skin starts to peel, you should not pick at the flaking skin as this may cause scarring.
Chemical Peel FAQs
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Bartos will talk about your costs in your consultation after she has decided on your personalized treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel will vary based on the level you select. Imperial Dermatology accepts many payment methods, and we often run specials on facial treatments like chemical peels. You may also consider buying a package of several chemical peel treatments.
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin concerns and cosmetic goals. In your initial consultation with Dr. Bartos, she will help you select which formula is right for your skin. A few factors you might want to consider are your general health, the type of skin you have, the depth of your skin concerns, how long you can spend in recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. Initially, it may be better to try a lighter peel and decide what you think of the results. After this, you and Dr. Bartos can tweak your plan to find the best type of peel for you.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are both facial treatments that correct surface irregularities to make your skin softer. The major difference is that dermabrasion uses special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush ) to remove the surface skin layer with a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel uses a caustic solution that is applied to your skin to dissolve damaged skin cells. During your consultation, Dr. Bartos will review both options’ pros and cons and help you choose whether dermabrasion or a chemical peel is better for achieving your skin goals.
