What Are Chemical Peels?
Exfoliating peels (chemical peels) are aesthetic treatment solutions designed to treat skin conditions like acne, melasma (hormonal pigmentation), fine lines, wrinkles, uneven patches, pigmentation, scaring and more. Our mild to moderate peels contain combinations of beta-hydroxy (salicylic), alpha-hydroxy (glycolic, lactic, malic) and trichloroacetic (TCA) exfoliating agents that are safe to apply on the face and body.

How Are Chemical Peels Performed?
On the day of your appointment registered nurse Elizabeth Hagen will begin your skin treatment by performing a thorough skin assessment to determine the right mild to moderate peel solution that meets your needs. The peel solution will be brushed onto your skin and allowed to set for a specific length of time. Exfoliation treatments (chemical peels) penetrate your skin's top layers, encouraging the oldest layers to release dead and damaged skin cells. Protective sunscreen will be applied, and Elizabeth will provide aftercare instructions.
What happens after?
The recovery time depends on the type of peel. For a superficial peel, recovery usually takes 1-7 days. Over the next week, your skin will feel dry and flaky, gently sloughing off the top layers of dead skin cells.
A medium peel may require 1-2 weeks for recovery. The first 3 days, your skin will feel very dry, from day 3 to day 7 days expect to generously peel.
Chemical Peels are designed to stimulate and rejuvenate the deepest layers of the skin. The result is a smoother, clearer, and more radiant complexion.
After a chemical peel, it's important to wear at least a 30 SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun and to keep it moisturized. Here at Absolute Aesthetics, we will give you specific instructions based on the type of peel and your skin type.

Chemical Peel Reviews
I would absolutely recommend Elizabeth as your go to esthetician!! From the moment I walked into her office, I knew I was in a safe place and felt very comfortable. I was given all the information regarding my procedure, and was informed of any side effects that could happen. She is very good at what she does and did her best to keep me comfortable (electrolysis is not very fun lol). I am so happy to have found her business and cannot wait for my next appointment!

Chemical Peel FAQs
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Hagen will discuss your costs during your consultation as soon as she has decided on your chemical peel treatment plan. The cost of a chemical peel will vary based on the formula you choose. Absolute Aesthetics accepts several payment methods and we often run specials on skin 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 aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation with Dr. Hagen, she can help you select which peel is best for your skin. You might consider a few factors: your overall health, skin type, the depth of your skin concerns, how long you can recover, and what you want the peel to accomplish. For first-time patients, it's better to try a lighter chemical peel and decide how you like the results. From there, you and Dr. Hagen can tweak your treatment plan to find the best type of peel for you.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are facial rejuvenation procedures that treat surface imperfections to give your skin a rejuvenated appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion uses special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush ) to remove the surface skin layer through careful scraping. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve dead and damaged skin cells. In your initial consultation, Dr. Hagen will review each treatment’s pros and cons and help you choose if a chemical peel or dermabrasion is best for your skin goals.
