Costs of Chemical Peels
Chemical peel cost in India
Hi. I work mostly with the higher Fitzpatrick skin types - III to VI. And so, my chemical peel range is restricted to superficial/light to medium peels. My charges would be between $20 and $26 per peel session for glycolic/ salicylic/ lactic/ TCA peels.
And since, the peel is charged per session, the costs may vary depending on the total number of sessions planned, and would differ based on the area to be covered ,eg, back versus face.

Chemical Peel pricing varies greatly across the country and also the type of peel utilized. Typically,$75 to $1500.

Cost of Chemical Peels
The cost of a chemical peel is determined by the type of peel you are having done.
For example, in our practice a glycolic peel is $75 and our Lactic peel is $65.00 per treatment.
We offer a stronger peel called the VI peel that is $300 per treatment.
Package pricing for all our peels is also available since typically a series of treatments is required to achieve optimal results.
Package prices will usually lower the cost of each peel since you are paying for multiple treatments at one time.
The cost of your chemical peel treatment will vary depending on the areas you are having treated as well.
The cost of $75 for a glycolic peel includes treatment of the face, neck and decollete. If you are wanting to treat your arms and hands as well this would be considered a separate treatment for another charge of $75 due to the additional solution that would be used.
Chemical Peel Costs
Light chemical peels such a Jessner's solution cost $175 each and usually need 5-6 peels at 2 weeks apart. 10-15% TCA peels run about $250 each and need 3-5 peels. 20-25% TCA peels run about $500-750 each and most need 2-3 peels. 30-35% TCA peels run about $750-1500 each and 1-2 peels do great for most patients. You also will need a good cortisone lotion, prescription bleaching cream and sunscreen with each peel.
Peel type and need for anesthesia and aftercare
Deeper peels need anesthesia and more aftercare (more visits to the doctor's office during healing). This makes them a bigger deal and therefore more expensive. Laser peels also tend to cost more than chemical peels as equipment cost factors in as well.
Deeper peels correct more pigment, wrinkles, etc. Not everyone benefits by the same peel.
Chemical peel cost or price
Prices for a chemical peel will vary based on the type of peel performed. Some superficial chemical peels can be performed at home and purchased over the counter while others are performed by aestheticians and other non-physicians. Deeper chemical peels will generally require a physician and more intense post treatment care. This will usually result in a higher cost. Deep chemical peels such as phenol require cardiac monitoring which will also add to the cost.
