The cost of chemical peels used for treating acne scars

Acne scars can affect self-esteem. Dr. Jeanine Downie, a nationally prominent dermatologist who founded image Dermatology® in Montclair, knows firsthand the concerns of a patient who battles acne. She suffered from acne and then found a treatment that worked. One of the treatments she offers patients is chemical peels. She is happy to explain the cost as well as other factors of chemical peels. Cost factors of chemical peels include the type of peel, strength of the peel, and the individual needs of the patient. Deep chemical peels affect several layers of skin. They are used only on the face and are only performed once. Deep chemical peels require anesthesia and more aftercare. These are used to correct skin pigment issues and wrinkles. These chemical peels often contain a chemical called phenol. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is the main peeling agent used for medium peels, though the peel may be done in several steps using a different chemical solution followed by TCA. Superficial or light peels are the mildest type of chemical peel and can be used on all skin types. They usually use glycolic acid. This type of chemical peel can be performed during a lunch break and does not require any downtime. Dr. Downie performs a superficial peel on herself once a month.
