What are Chemical Peels?

For the best results from chemical peel treatments, RareV provides you with different choices. Your customized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you more radiant skin. At our Las Vegas, NV office, our team offers chemical peel treatments that help to remove skin flaws, including scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dry patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels clear away dead, damaged skin cells using a specific treatment on the skin, which causes the upper layer to slough off. As your skin recovers and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you may notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel facial is a noninvasive technique to make your complexion radiant and is used for the face and neck.

Variations of Chemical Peels

In our Las Vegas, NV office, we perform chemical peels in a few levels (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skincare concerns and goals.

Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel during your lunch break and return to your routine. This strength of peel will remove the top skin layer (the epidermis), giving your facial features a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We usually recommend that you get a light chemical peel at least once a month for the best glowing results.

Medium-depth peels: This strength of a chemical peel goes deeper into the skin, and patients generally prefer to have this strength of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also prefer to ready yourself for more discomfort during and up to one hour after a chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have significant damage to their skin, like deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems.

Deep peels: The strongest of the three types of chemical peels is the deep chemical peel, and it does require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that could leave your face swollen, peeling, and itchy for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who have a deep peel usually have age or dark spots, sun-damaged skin, prominent acne scars, and/or deep scars. As this strength of chemical peel is usually uncomfortable for most patients, we may provide you with local anesthesia prior to your procedure.

Who is a Candidate for a chemical peel?

Getting the advice of a skin specialist is the first part of the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at RareV will evaluate your skin in an examination in our Las Vegas, NV office before selecting a chemical peel for ideal results. Chemical peel patients, both men, and women, typically have noticeable issues with their skin, including scaly patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, sun spots, and much more. We can recommend different strengths of peels to match your goals.

How does a chemical peel work?

During your procedure at RareV, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will ensure your skin is cleaned before applying the personalized solution to the treatment areas. We will massage the solution onto your face and let it work for a specific length of time, which will be determined in your treatment planning session. Then, we will wash the solution off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. You should bring a light sunscreen or a hat to wear outside following the peel to protect from sun exposure.


Depending on the strength of the peel you have, you should expect the treated area to peel and itch from several days to two or more weeks. A member of our team will discuss methods to care for your face during your appointment. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches during the post-treatment process, it is not good to pull the skin off. You may create scarring to your facial skin!

Chemical Peel FAQ

How much does a chemical peel cost?
Our team will go over your costs in your consultation as soon as he has made your personalized treatment plan. The cost of a chemical peel will vary based on the formula you get. RareV accepts many payments methods, and you can ask about current 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?
Which level of chemical peel is best for you will vary based on your specific skin needs and cosmetic goals. In your consultation, we can help you decide which peel is best for your skin. Some factors you may want to consider are your general health, your skin type, how deep you want the peel to work, how long you can spend in recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. Initially, it's better to start with a light peel and see how you like the results. From there, we may tweak your treatment plan to decide the best type of peel for your skin.

Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Chemical peels and dermabrasion are facial treatments that treat surface imperfections to give your skin a rejuvenated appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion requires surgical tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush) to remove the top layer of skin through a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel uses a caustic solution that is applied to your skin to dissolve dead and damaged skin cells. During your initial consultation, we will explain the advantages of each treatment and help you decide if a chemical peel or dermabrasion best fits your needs and goals.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Based on the formula selected, you might feel mild discomfort when it is on your skin. If you choose a lighter peel, you will feel some discomfort, but this goes away quickly with a small fan. Deep or medium peels are good for deeper issues and longer-lasting results, but they usually cause greater discomfort. Numbing cream, skin medications, and soothing ointments can be used to help you feel more comfortable during the treatment. A member of our team will explain post-treatment skin care to help your skin heal.

Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
A chemical peel may be combined with another nonsurgical skin treatment at RareV. During your initial consultation, be open with our team about your skin issues so we can create a unique treatment plan to achieve your goals. Your plan may include injectable wrinkle treatments (such as BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) along with your chemical peel to refresh your entire appearance.
