What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are customized facial treatments that are designed to improve a wide range of skin concerns that include texture, tone, skin discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles. Chemical peels use a precise chemical blend to carefully exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, revealing the healthy, radiant skin underneath. These treatments are highly customizable, so they are suitable for patients of all skin types and ages.

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?

The cost of your chemical peel treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your chemical peel treatment that will work best for you.

Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions. We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.

Am I A Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are versatile treatments that can be customized to suit any skin type and nearly any cosmetic concern. If you are interested in a chemical peel treatment, the best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation. During your consultation, we can help you determine if a chemical peel is the best treatment option for you.

Is There Any Downtime After a Chemical Peel?

After a chemical peel, depending on the strength of the chemical peel treatment, you can expect mild redness and tenderness for a few days. Then, the skin will begin to flake and peel off, similar to a sunburn.

During these phases, it is important to protect the skin from excessive sun exposure and other irritants, as the skin will be highly sensitive. Despite these minor restraints, patients are able to resume most normal activities following their treatment.

When Will I See Results from My Chemical Treatment?

The results from your chemical peel treatment will become visible after the skin has healed, typically a week or two after treatment. Some patients may need multiple chemical peel treatments to achieve their desired results, which can then be maintained with regular chemical peel treatment sessions.

Beautiful office and welcoming environment. The facility is open and bright. They do quality procedures always focused on looking natural and refreshed. Ashley is the best!!!


Professional, friendly, compassionate staff. I have been coming here for years and always have a great experience. Very pleased with my most recent results. Would highly recommend.


The staff at Cosmetic Enhancement Center are knowledgeable/professional and truly care about the client/patient experience. What I found refreshing was the fact that they were honest about the approach and process that was right for me and not merely trying to ‘sell a treatment’ for the sake of profiting. Honest, professional and they have your best interest in mind.
