As with any cosmetic procedure, the price of a glycolic acid peel may vary greatly. Generally they range in price from $50.00. (usually in a spa) to $200.00. The price will also vary by region. When considering where to go also consider the strength of the glycolic acid peel. Higher strength peels, such as a 90% peel will generally be more expensive than a 30% peel. Dina Strachan, MD.

Melapeel for pigmentation - Los Angeles

In our office, we use the Melapeel to address pigmentation, acne, and large pores.  The peel is a few hundred dollars and works well to treat the skin. We believe this peel is preferable to a glycolic peel. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles

 In our practice, usually the aesthetician performs the glycolic peels. We charge $85 for a single peel and $300 for a series of 4. It is probably lower in a so-called medi-spa, and a bit higher in places like LA or NYC.

Most chemical peels can range from $100-$300 (and can go up from there) depending on the percentage of chemicals and the quality of the office you are going. It's best to look for an office that works with multiple chemical peels and have the experience of working with a range of skin types.  The initial analysis it the most important. In my office we use the VISIA skin care analysis system that allow us to not only see what would work best or your skin but we can track your results.

Cost of Glycolic Peel

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The cost for a single Glycolic Peel in my practice is $100. After having the first peel, you will most likely want to do a series of peels approximately 2-3 weeks apart. We offer a series of four peels for $300 and a series of six peels for $400. I use a 70% strength glycolic acid and apply it myself.
