Keep Your Skin Looking Radiant & Youthful

Medical Spa Treatments: Chemical Peel

A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical method to make your complexion luminous around the areas of the face and neck -- but chemical peels come in different types, and you’ll need the help of an experienced, board-certified professional to determine which type is best to meet your individual needs and make your skin look radiant and youthful. 

Board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson offers chemical peel treatments that solve skin irregularities such as scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dry patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels remove damaged, dead skin cells by applying a personalized treatment to the skin that causes the upper layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you will see a smoother, clearer complexion. 

If you’re ready to look as radiant as you can, schedule your chemical peel with us today. If you have questions for us, contact our office in Greenwood Village, CO. Our friendly, knowledgeable team is happy to help!

Types of Chemical Peels for Face & Neck

For the highest quality results from chemical peel treatments, The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity provides you with a wide range of choices. We offer chemical peels in multiple strengths (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate your skin concerns.

We offer various types of chemical peels for acne, wrinkles, scars and more, including:

  • Light peels: You can receive a light peel on a lunch hour and go right back to your routine. This type of peel will remove the outer layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your facial features a more radiant appearance and a smoother texture. We usually recommend that you schedule a light peel at least once a month for the ideal glowing results.
  • Medium-depth peels: This type of peel goes further into the skin and patients generally decide to have this type of facial treatment during an extended weekend. You may also want to ready yourself for increased discomfort during and about one hour following the treatment. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have deeper damage to their skin, like deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems.
  • Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep peel and it does require the longest recovery time. This is an aggressive treatment that may leave your face itchy, peeling, and swollen for a few weeks. Patients who have a deep chemical peel generally have age or dark spots, sun damage, entrenched acne scars, and/or deep scars. Since this type of chemical peel is generally uncomfortable for patients, you may be given an anesthetic as a part of your treatment.

Seeking the advice of a skin specialist is the first part in the journey to smooth, healthy skin. A team member at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity will evaluate your skin during an examination in our Greenwood Village office before selecting the chemical peel that will provide your individual skin with the optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do chemical peels near me cost?

Dr. Levenson can discuss your costs during your consultation once he has developed your personalized treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel will vary depending on the intensity you choose. The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity takes several payment methods and we often run specials on skin treatments like chemical peels. Buying a package with several chemical peel treatments can also help you save money.

What level should I choose for my chemical peel?

Which level of chemical peel is best for you will vary based on your specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals. In your initial consultation with Dr. Levenson, he can help you decide which formula is best for your skin. A few things you might want to consider are your general health, the type of skin you have, the depth of your skin concerns, the time you can commit to recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. For your first peel, it is better to try a light chemical peel and decide what you think of the results. After this, you and Dr. Levenson can adjust your treatment plan to find the best type of peel for you.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?

Based on the peel selected, you might feel mild discomfort throughout the treatment and shortly after. If you get a light peel, you will notice a little discomfort; however, this can be alleviated with the use of a small fan. Deep or medium peels are better for deeper skin blemishes and longer-lasting results; however, they can cause greater discomfort. Numbing cream, skin medications, and soothing ointments may be used to help you feel more comfortable during your chemical peel. Dr. Levenson or a member of his team will explain how to care for your skin after a peel to maintain your results.

Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?

A chemical peel may be combined with another nonsurgical skin treatment at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity. In your initial consultation, be open with Dr. Levenson when describing your skin goals so he can develop a comprehensive treatment plan that delivers your best results. Your plan might include adding an injectable treatment for wrinkles (such as Juvéderm or BOTOX), plus a chemical peel to refresh your entire face.
