About Chemical Peels
To get the best quality results from cosmetic chemical peel treatments, Body+Beauty Lab provides you with many choices. Your medical-grade chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic and lactic acids) will give you smoother, healthier skin. At our Philadelphia, and Radnor, PA offices, our team of experienced estheticians offers chemical peel treatments that address a wide range of skin flaws, including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead or damaged skin cells with a specific solution that is applied to the skin, which causes the oldest layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical procedure that will leave your complexion bright for a long time. This treatment can be done for the face, neck, and décollatage (chest).

"I went to the Philadelphia location, I had Melissa as my clinical esthetician. She was very professional and thorough. Very pleased with the quality of work she did and highly recommended her. Cost is also very reasonable which is another factor, as there are many other places one could go that offer similar services."- F. / Google / Feb 20, 2023
"I’m so happy we have a place like BBL in center city because I love the detailed care they take w/skin care needs. I’ve been seeing Judy since 2019 for various facials and haven’t wanted to go to anyone else since. She takes the time to listen to your concerns and assess your needs which puts me at ease. I like to try new facials and I appreciate how Judy honestly walks me thru pros/cons of new treatments for my skin goals. She truly enjoys her craft and caring for her clients and she’s felt more like a friend I go to visit rather than only an esthetician. My skin always looks great after working w/Judy and I appreciate all the compliments I’ve received on my skin glowing :) and I love to credit her w/results so anyone who has commented on my skin gets to learn her name."- E.B. / Google / Jan 12, 2023

Getting valuable advice from an aesthetic specialist is essential in everyone's journey to achieving healthier, more radiant skin. One of our team members at Body+Beauty Lab will evaluate your skin during a one-on-one consultation at our Philadelphia, PA office before your ideal chemical peel is selected. Regardless of gender, chemical peel candidates typically have visible problems with their complexion, like scaly patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and more. We can suggest multiple types of peels to fit your needs and concerns and help you to decide which would produce your best outcomes.
During your appointment at Body+Beauty Lab, we will ask you to lie in a comfortable position to administer your treatment. A team member will ensure that your skin is properly cleaned prior to applying the solution to the treatment areas. We will massage the solution onto your skin and allow it to soak in for around half an hour, depending on the type of peel that was selected and your goals. Finally, we will remove the excess peel off of your skin and administer a neutralizing agent. Clients are encouraged to bring sunscreen or a hat to wear outside following the procedure to protect their skin from environmental exposure and UV rays.
What to Expect
Depending on the chemical peel that you choose, you should expect your face to flake and itch for up to two weeks. Your skilled esthetician will give you post-care skin instructions once your treatment has concluded. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the post-treatment process, it's not helpful to pick the skin off. You could cause your delicate skin to scar!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Your esthetician can talk about your costs during your consultation after your chemical peel treatment plan has been developed. Costs for a chemical peel will vary, depending on the type you get. Body+Beauty Lab takes several payment methods. We encourage clients to ask about current specials on our spectrum of facial treatments. Buying a package with several chemical peel treatments can also help you save money. In addition, joining our VIP membership program will also entitle you to exclusive deals and discounts on a range of our skin care services.
What should I choose for my chemical peel?
The chemical peel you choose will depend on your specific skin needs and aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, we can help you select which chemical peel is best for your skin. A few things you might consider are your general health, the type of skin you have, the depth of your skin concerns, the amount of time you can commit to recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. For first-time patients, it may be better to start with a signature peel and see what you think. After this, you and your esthetician might tweak your plan to create the best type of peel for your needs.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are both facial treatments that correct surface imperfections to give your skin a smooth, rejuvenated appearance. The major difference between the two is that dermabrasion requires special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush) to clear away the surface skin layer by means of a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve dead and damaged skin cells. During your one-on-one consultation, your esthetician will go over the pros and cons of each treatment and help you decide if dermabrasion or a chemical peel is better for your skin goals.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
For even greater improvements to your skin, you may combine a chemical peel with another skin treatment at Body+Beauty Lab. During your initial consultation, be open with your esthetician when describing your skin problems so we can develop a personalized treatment plan to best address your needs. Your skin care treatment plan might include an injectable treatment for wrinkles (such as Juvéderm or BOTOX), plus a chemical peel to refresh your entire face.
