What are Chemical Peels?
If you have visible problems on your skin, such as scaly patches, flaky skin, fine lines, sun spots, and more, you may greatly benefit from a chemical peel! To provide your ideal results from chemical peel treatments, Body Werks Chicago provides you with numerous choices. Your individualized chemical peel will reveal healthier, smoother skin. At our Chicago, IL office, we offer chemical peel treatments that decrease skin irregularities, including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, rough patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels remove damaged and dead skin cells, causing the top layer of skin to peel off to reveal a clearer, smoother complexion. Chemical peels at our Chicago, IL office are a noninvasive technique to help you have a bright and glowing complexion on the face and neck.
"Celia is the bomb.com!!! Super sweet, so thorough and just all around a great experience and nice time talking with her. Had the Treat your Kitty Nice and Pretty done which includes a full Brazilian wax & vajacial afterwards and it was great from start to finish. Not to mention this was my first time getting waxed after having my baby and it was just a smooth & painless relaxing procedure. Never had it like that before so I’m glad I found her!"- E.G. / Google / Sep 29, 2021
"Vanessa was amazing, I thought it would be awkward at first but no, it was the opposite."- Y.P. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"First the good - I got a package for 6 sessions of radio frequency treatments and my esthetician Celia was absolutely amazing. Not only did I see results, it was also always a joy to chat with her. Highly recommend her. Now the bad - They kept messing up the IOU. Basically, we are allowed to split up the payment for a package into three or less installments with them. But multiple times, they kept telling me that my remaining balance was something that definitely seemed like more to me. The first time, I was okay with it because calculation errors happen. The second time it was a lot. But the third time, things got really inflated. I did my calculation and showed them but they said they needed to consult with their manager (fair enough). So the manager gives me a call back and leaves me a voicemail saying a ridiculous number that is owed (like more than double of what I had calculated). Then when we were able to get on the call, I walked her through the calculation. She seemed very miffed about it but ultimately she realized I was right. However, after that entire ordeal, I wasn’t given a single apology. Her reaction was like “Okay, I updated your IOU.” and that was it. No “sorry about that” or anything at all. So, I don’t know if I was the only one who faced this, but you can’t expect your customers to constantly correct the math for you. Especially, the first two times when they were wrong, they were off by $50-75. So to a customer it may not even be noticeable given the high cost of the services, and that is dangerous. And if you do mess up, the least you can do - after putting the customer through the ordeal - is offer a sincere apology and some reassurance. As much I loved Celia, the accounting experience left a very sour taste in my mouth and I don’t think I would like to return there."- A.B. / Google / Jun 19, 2021
"I booked an appointment back on May 27th which was a Thursday. I knew i was not going to be able to keep my appointment. So i canceled my appointment on Monday before i was scheduled. I asked for my deposit back several times since you had to put it down to reserve an appointment . Nobody never returned my call and my deposit was not returned. It’s now June 13th. I found the staff to be very unprofessional and inconsiderate of my time and money. My recommendation stands is don’t go!! If they treat you like this before being serviced then it only leaves little room for the imagination as to what spirit they’ll work in throughout the process."- V.T. / Facebook / Jun 14, 2021
"The service provided by Vanessa was excellent! I recently had a Vajacial & a sugar Brazilian wax for the first time. I was extremely nervous at first, but she answered all my questions. Vanessa is very knowledgeable about everything which made me very comfortable. I felt like I was talking to one of my friends. I also love the fact all the products they use is all natural. As soon as I walked in the staff was friendly & professional I will be returning for other services soon."- Y.B. / Google / Nov 22, 2020
What Can I Expect from My Chemical Peel?
Before your chemical peel, we will have a private consultation to discuss your chemical peel options. We offer a varying degree of chemical peels, from light peels to deep peels. The difference between these peels is the strength of the peel used, as well as the recovery period. On the day of your procedure at Body Werks Chicago, we will have you relax in one of our comfortable procedure rooms while we administer your peel. We will ensure your skin is cleansed prior to applying the customized solution to your face and/or neck. We will spread the solution onto your skin and allow it to set for an appropriate length of time. Next, we will wash the peel off your face and put on a neutralizing agent. You are encouraged to bring a light sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after your treatment to avoid sun exposure. Depending on the level of the chemical peel you choose, you can expect your skin to peel and itch, from a few days to a couple of weeks. Someone from the team will explain how to treat your face after your procedure. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches after your chemical peel, it's not good to pull the skin off, as you may create scarring to your skin.
Chemical peel FAQs
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
Everyone's needs are different, so Body Werks Chicago will examine your skin and listen to your treatment goals before making a recommendation. If you have a sensitive complexion or this is your first chemical peel, we may provide a lighter peel to see how your skin reacts. Patients who want dramatic results and have gotten chemical peels before may benefit from a deeper treatment.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Patients don't experience a great deal of discomfort after a chemical peel. Of course, your skin will be more sensitive depending on the level of treatment provided. Our staff can provide you with tips and advice for reducing discomfort, such as avoiding sun exposure and keeping your face clean and moisturized during recovery.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
Chemical peels can be effective when used in conjunction with other skincare treatments. However, it's best to get one procedure at a time at Body Werks Chicago. We want to make sure your skin heals properly before we treat it again. Remember to ask about options like dermaplaning and microneedling for amazing results.
