Frequently Asked Questions

How do Chemical Peels work?

Chemical Peels are clinical applications that work to drastically improve the outer layer of skin. A variety of solutions are used depending on your selected Chemical Peel in order to obtain your desired treatment results. An exfoliating solution removes damaged and dead skin from the upper layer to create a smoother and more refined texture.

At Lucere, we are proud to offer a variety of unique and personalized Chemical Peel treatments, to target specific skin concerns tailored to each client’s unique needs. We have peels that are specific to acne & acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, sunspots, melasma, dull skin, uneven skin tone and much more!

Is there any downtime with a Chemical Peel?

You may experience mild pinkness in the skin for one to three hours following your treatment. However, this is typically well-tolerated by patients. Depending on the ingredients and intensity of your peel, you may experience some social downtime as your skin may mildly peel or flake.

Which Chemical Peel is right for me?

Lucere offers a variety of effective Chemical Peel treatments depending on your unique skincare needs. During your complimentary consultation, one of our skin experts will be happy to determine the peel that is right for you.

How much does a Chemical Peel cost?

At Lucere, we offer a variety of different peels to target different skin concerns. They typically range from $149-$269 per treatment.

Will my skin peel after my Chemical Peel treatment?

Not necessarily, it depends on the peel! Depending on the specific peel and the ingredients in that peel, you may or may not peel. We do offer gentle peels that do not result in peeling or flaking, rather, deep exfoliation of the skin. We also offer peels that will cause some mild redness and/or mild peeling or flaking.

When will I see results?

You will notice an instant glow to your skin immediately following your Chemical Peel treatment. Because Chemical Peels deeply exfoliate the skin, you may experience purging or breaking out of the skin, as impurities come to the surface, days following your peel.

Will I experience any discomfort during my Chemical Peel?

Your Chemical Peel is designed to be a rejuvenating experience. You should experience none to minimal discomfort during your treatment. Some peels may result in itching or tingling sensation during the treatment.
