Chemical Peel Kansas City: Multiple Options for Your Skincare Needs
Chemical peels are a cost-effective method to achieve a light to moderate resurfacing of the skin. By providing a deeper treatment than microdermabrasion, chemical peels target age spots, acne, sun-damaged skin, fine lines and surface blemishes. The best part? You can see great results from just one treatment!
At Skincare by Michelle, different types of chemical peels are used to address various skin types and conditions. All chemical peels include a thorough skin analysis to ensure your treatment is perfect for your skin type.

What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a technique used to help improve the appearance of the skin on your face, neck or hands. It uses an acidic solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin and to stimulate the production of new cells. The strength of the acids determines the depth of exfoliation. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the skin that was removed.
What Does a Chemical Peel Do?
A chemical peel is used to:
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
- Improve the appearance of mild scars
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles and melasma (dark patches)
- Improve the look of sagging skin and crow’s feet
Types of Chemical Peels
Different levels of chemical peels treat different skin conditions:
Superficial / Light / “Lunchtime” Chemical Peels
This type of chemical peel penetrates only the outer layer of skin and is ideal for clients who want the benefits of a peel, but do not want to experience the recovery time associated with a deeper treatment. A light chemical peel is ideal for treating light wrinkles, acne and rough or uneven skin texture/pigmentation. The solutions used are typically alphahydroxy acids, such as salicylic or fruit acids. A series of light peels is usually required to achieve desired results.
Medium Chemical Peels
Stronger than a superficial peel but still requiring less downtime than a deep peel, this type of chemical peel penetrates the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. Medium peels target wrinkles, blemishes and pigmentation issues using glycolic or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Multiple medium peels (with enough recovery time in between) are possible.
Deep Chemical Peels
The strongest chemical peel, a deep peel uses phenol acid to treat coarse wrinkles, sun-damaged skin and shallow scars. This type of chemical produces the most dramatic, long-lasting results, but also takes longer and requires a longer recovery time of two to three weeks. You can only have one deep peel.
Are Chemical Peels Safe?
When performed by an experienced aesthetician, chemical peels are completely safe. During light and medium chemical peels, you’ll likely only feel a mild stinging sensation. Over-the-counter pain relievers are provided to help minimize any post-treatment discomfort. Deep peels do cause some pain and require an oral sedative or, in some cases, general anesthesia. (Because of this, I do not perform deep peels at Skincare by Michelle in Kansas City.)
Following light and medium chemical peels, you may experience redness and peeling. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun until healing is complete. Frequent moisturizing and proper care of the skin is important to help prevent infection and help results last longer.
How Long Do Chemical Peel Results Last?
Because the skin continues to age, chemical peel results are not permanent. The deeper the peel, however, the longer your results will last. I can tell you more about the type of results you may experience during your thorough skin analysis prior to treatment.
How Much is a Chemical Peel?
At SkinCare by Michelle in Kansas City, a single chemical peel is $65. You can also add a chemical peel to any service for $40 or purchase one as part of one of my popular facial packages. In addition to great results, this buys you the peace of mind of knowing a trained professional is on your side!

Chemical Peel Kansas City Reviews
After years of struggling with melasma, I was desperate to try anything that would improve the discoloration of my skin. I had tried endless amounts of products over the counter and prescribed by my dermatologist with little or no results. Although I was skeptical about chemical and laser peels, I was desperate to try anything. After a series of chemical peels followed with laser treatments, the stubborn spots finally faded. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
I used to hate how my complexion was so splotchy. Regular chemical peels have really made a huge difference in my skin’s appearance. It not only got rid of hyperpigmentation, but it reduced the appearance of most, if not all, of my acne scars and also reduced some wrinkles. Now my skin is radiant!
I would’ve never imagined how great my face would look a month after a chemical peel! My skin looks younger and I’ve gotten SO many compliments on how refreshed my skin appears.
