Chemical peels are a non-invasive procedure used to control blemishes, reduce irregular pigmentation, and fade fine lines caused by sun damage, age, or other uncontrollable factors. They can also improve whiteheads and blackheads that are seen with acne or excessively oily skin. When you come into La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, you can rest assured that your Chemical Peel will leave your skin looking fresh and renewed! Located in La Jolla we proudly see Chemical Peels patients from all over San Diego and Orange County.


What are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels in San Diego and the La Jolla area can be extremely beneficial for skin health and appearance for all skin types and tones. By eliminating damaged or aged skin, patients can reduce wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and more. Chemical peels can also improve the efficacy of topical skincare products as there is more penetration in the skin after a peel.

Who are the Best Candidates for a Chemical Peel Treatment?

Good candidates for Chemical Peels in La Jolla & San Diego are not immuno-suppressed and don’t have any major underlying medical conditions. Peels are ideal options for those suffering from unwanted skin conditions such as wrinkles, lines, acne, scars, dark spots, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and premature skin aging from the sun. Deeper peels can even address more serious skin conditions such as melasma, rosacea, and precancerous growths. Chemical peel treatments are excellent choices for all skin types and tones. You should maintain realistic expectations from the procedure and not be currently pregnant or nursing.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting a Chemical Peel in La Jolla & San Diego is to schedule an in-person visit to La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic for a consultation with one of our certified providers

While Chemical Peels are safe for most skin types and tones, they may not be the perfect option for all clients. We recommend that you schedule a consultation at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic to meet with one of our medical professionals. The appointment includes an evaluation of your skin and a discussion about your cosmetic goals. If undergoing a Chemical Peel is right for you, we explain the procedure and the expected outcome.

At the end of the consultation, we aim to arrive at a mutually agreed upon treatment plan, after which, you can either receive your Chemical Peel immediately following your consultation, or if you’d prefer, you can then schedule your appointment for a convenient time.


What to Expect on the Day of a Chemical Peel Treatment

At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we offer a wide variety of medical chemical peels. Depending on which treatment you opted for during your consultation with your provider, you can expect as follows: 

Jessner Peel

The technician applies a glycolic cleanser over your face to fully remove the oils so that Jessner’s solution will penetrate properly. Then she will apply Jessner’s solution to your face. This causes a slight burning sensation. Several layers may be applied depending on the skin condition. You may develop a whitened look, known as “frosting” that will dissipate within a few hours. The technician neutralizes the solution and removes it from the skin with cool water. Finally, a calming mask is applied.

VI Peel

At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, our VI Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that reaches the dermis of your skin. This layer of skin is where most complex signs of aging originate. The combination of five chemicals in our VI Peel not only corrects wrinkles and other concerns but also exfoliates your skin for a radiant glow and soft texture.

The VI Peel is applied in two layers. After the first layer, you may notice some tingling and numbness. Once the second layer is applied, your skin turns white, indicating that the peel is working. Applying the peel takes about 30 minutes. After the VI Peel is applied, you return home. The peel stays on your skin for four to six hours, and you wash it off following the instructions that we provide before you leave our practice. Use a mild, high-quality cleanser to remove the peel. Do not use any type of skin products while the peel is on your face.

Chemical Peels Recovery

After your chemical peel at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, your skin might appear pink, with some swelling, followed by it flaking off for about a week. For the first 3 to 4 days, we provide a protectant that needs to be applied to your skin two to four times per day after the peel is rinsed off your skin. For the first week, you are supposed to stay out of direct sunlight and are expected to use medical-grade sunscreen.

Finally, around the one-week mark, your results will be evident, with your face looking smoother and more radiant.

How Much Does a Chemical Peel Cost in La Jolla & San Diego?

 The cost of a Chemical Peel in La Jolla & San Diego will vary depending on the strength of the chemical peel solution as well as the number of treatments needed for optimal results. 

Please schedule an appointment to consult with a technician for further insight into your customized needs and cost.
