AHA Peel Cost
AHA peels are among the mildest chemical peels available. A single AHA (alpha-hydroxy-acid) peel costs $100 to $300. The chemical solution is made with concentration of 30% to 70% glycolic acid (the stronger the concentration, the deeper your peel). The difference in AHA concentration is not typically reflected in the price of your procedure, and even at the highest acid level, the AHA is not particularly intense.
Because AHA peels only affect the very top layers of the skin, several treatments may be required before you recognize any significant changes in your complexion. For this reason many dermatologists offer a discount as an incentive to purchase a package of multiple peels in advance. A series of three AHA peels costs $300 to $600, and a series of six costs $400 to $1,000.
AHA peels can treat dull skin, acne, and enlarged pores on body skin too. Price breaks are also available if you address several body parts at once. For example, a physician who charges $150 for an AHA peel on the face may charge $450 to combine treatment of the face, neck, and hands.
How to get AHA peel: For mild, use-at-home formulations, at a pharmacy. For stronger peels, at an aesthetician's or plastic surgeon's office.
