The term “lunchtime peel” is used for a chemical peel that can be completed at “lunch time” or a break from work, giving it its name. The lunchtime peel, like other chemical peels, is aimed at clearing up the skin, re-toning it, smoothing it, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. If you are interested in getting started with chemical peels and have never done one before, the lunchtime peel could be a perfect foray into the treatment!
This quick read will go over some of the details, the definition, cost, and more information about the lunchtime peel.
What is a lunchtime peel?
A lunchtime peel is a chemical peel and moisturizing treatment that takes under an hour and can be done “on your lunch break.” It also gets its name from the lack of recovery time needed. You can get right back to work or your usual social life right after. You will not need days for your skin to return to normal as you might with some of the deeper penetrating chemical peels.
What does a chemical peel do for me?
A lunchtime peel in Chicago at CCI can help you with:
- Removal of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, revealing healthy, younger skin.
- Encourages the skin’s natural collagen production (plumps the skin and reduces wrinkles).
- Skin redness reduction like you see with rosacea.
- Kills bacteria that can cause acne and breakouts.
- Brings more even tone to skin color.
Do chemical peels stimulate collagen?
Yes, one of the most commonly discussed benefits of chemical peels is the stimulation of collagen in the skin, bringing back plumper, more youthful skin in many cases. The amount of collagen production re-ignited by your peel depends on the “depth” of the peel. They come in superficial, medium, and deep peels.
How much does a lunchtime chemical peel cost?
According to thumbtack cost estimates from hundreds of chemical peel providers, moderate peels can cost anywhere from $200-600, depending on the provider you choose, the area you live in, and other factors.
