ABOUT CHEMICAL PEELS
For the highest quality results from chemical peel facial treatments, Radiant Skin provides you with several choices. Your customized chemical peel with exfoliating solutions, such as glycolic, salicylic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids, will reveal healthier, smoother skin. At our Zionsville and Danville, IN offices, our skilled team of aestheticians and skin care professionals offers chemical peel treatments that help to decrease skin irregularities, including wrinkles, scars, fine lines, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead or damaged skin cells using a customized treatment on your skin, allowing the outer layer to gently exfoliate. When your skin recovers and begins to repair and rejuvenate itself, you will see a smoother, clearer complexion.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER A CHEMICAL PEEL
Depending on the type and depth of chemical peel you receive, you should expect your face to itch and peel for several days to a couple of weeks. A member of our team will give you instructions on how to care for your skin after your procedure. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the post-treatment recovery process, it’s not a good idea to peel the skin off. You could create scarring on your skin!

CHEMICAL PEELS FAQ
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Mustaklem or registered nurse Kayla Trammel will discuss your costs during your consultation after they have decided on your personalized treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel will vary depending on the formula you choose. Radiant Skin takes many payments methods, and you can ask about current 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 vary based on your specific skin issues and cosmetic goals. In your initial consultation with our providers, they will help you decide which peel is best for your skin. Some factors you may consider are your general health, the type of skin you have, how deep you want the peel to work, the time you can commit to recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. Initially, it’s better to start with a light peel and decide how you like the results. From there, you and your provider can tweak your plan to decide the best type of peel for your skin.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are both facial rejuvenation procedures that address surface irregularities to make your skin a rejuvenated appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion uses special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush ) to remove the top layer of skin through a careful scraping process. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve damaged skin cells.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Based on the peel used, you may have mild discomfort throughout the treatment and shortly after. If you have a lighter peel, you will notice some stinging; however, it can be alleviated with a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are better for deeper skin blemishes and longer-lasting results, but they can be more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, skin medications, and ointments can be applied to minimize your discomfort during the treatment. A member of our team, will explain skin care after your chemical peel to help your skin heal.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
A chemical peel may be combined with another skin treatment at Radiant Skin. In your consultation, be open with your provider when describing what your concerns and goals are and our experienced staff will customize the perfect treatment plan for you!
