Body Chemical Peel: $800 | 2 vials Per Treatment

Our Approach

A chemical peel is a procedure that utilizes a solution of actives (mainly acids) to induce a controlled injury to the outermost layers of the skin. Common areas for people to get chemical peels on their body include the back and butt. These areas are prone to acne related to hormones, hair growth, and sweat. Utilizing a chemical peel on the body works beautifully to improve acne/blemishes by increasing the cell turnover rate of the skin. Depending on the concern being targeted, as well as the area being treated, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. Patients are provided with medical grade skincare to optimize and maintain their results.

Pre-Care | Post-Care
  • Do not wear makeup to your appointment. ​

  • Avoid shaving, waxing, or chemical hair removal for at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. 

  • If you’re prone to herpes outbreaks, begin taking your medication at least 3 days prior to your appointment.


Do chemical peels hurt? 

On the body chemical peels feel very mild. This is because the skin on the body is less sensitive than the skin on the face. Patient’s usually only feel a warm sensation. 

How long does it take to see results? 

The skin on the body is thicker than the skin on the face. In addition, the cellular turnover rate is slower. So therefore it takes longer to fully appreciate the results of the chemical peel on the body. Patient’s should expect to wait 3-4 weeks to fully appreciate the results.

What’s the downtime? 

The “downtime” is just a week. Meaning, this is when the skin is the driest and most sensitive. But because the body takes longer to heal, patients should expect dryness for up to 3-4 months. Sun exposure should be avoided completely for at least 2 weeks, and very limited for up to a month. Proper SPF must be utilized when exposed during those limited exposure periods. 

Is this safe to do during the Summer? 

It depends. Chemical peels on the body can be safe to do in the Summer if the patient is completely out of the sun during the designated recovery period. Many patients find this challenging during the Summer months, but if they do want to proceed with a chemical peel it is possible with the appropriate safety parameters in place.  

I have body acne scars, will a chemical peel help? 

Yes, to some degree. Chemical peels are great for improving body acne scars and texture. It can take multiple peels in combination with microneedling and HD PRP to address significant scarring. But patients can expect an improvement with every treatment, especially when combined with medical grade skincare.

Do chemical peels help with pigmentation? 

Yes! Chemical peels in combination with medical grade skincare will drastically improve hyperpigmentation on the body. Depending on the level of hyperpigmentation and discoloration, various peels may be required, potentially combined with microneedling and HD PRP for best outcomes. Patient’s must be patient with the healing process when treating the body, as it does not heal as fast as the face for these corrective procedures. ​
