What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is a noninvasive technique to improve the radiance of the skin on the face, neck, and décollatage. Chemical peels remove damaged, dead skin cells by applying a special treatment on your skin, which causes the visible layer to slough off. The treatment can vary in strength, depending on which chemical exfoliating solutions are used (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, or trichloroacetic acids) to reveal smoother, healthier skin. At Elysium SurgiSpa, our team offers chemical peel treatments that help to decrease skin flaws, such as scars, wrinkles, fine lines, dry patches, hyperpigmentation, and more. Schedule a consultation at our office in Chicago, IL to learn more about chemical peels and other aesthetic treatments.
Chemical Peel Reviews
"Great service had 3 chemical peels done always very attentive Thank You going back soon 👍"- S.S. / Google / Oct 28, 2018
"Dr. Mick is the Michelangelo of Fillers and Botox. There is no amount of good that I can say that does justice to how amazing Elysium SurgiSpa truly is. Dr. Mick is not only warm and approachable, but his ’bedside manner’ is unparalleled. I was referred to Elysium for Botox and now go there for all of my skincare needs including hydra facials, dermaplaning, chemical peels, and skincare products. Not to mention, the staff is all fantastic and attentive and the space is beautiful."- H.S. / Yelp / Feb 24, 2021
"Plenty of metered street parking outside the building. $4.75/hour. There’s a park right across the street, which looks beautiful, so for those with kids *hint hint*When I walked in, the lobby looks beautiful, organized, and smells great. Wish I took a picture to share with you all.Bathroom was clean.Heard about the rave of Hydrafacial and saw a deal off Groupon so bought it to try. They start you off with a skin analysis using VISIA. It was nice to see areas of concern. The analysis points out spots, wrinkles, texture, pores, UV spots, brown spots, red areas and porphyrins (bacteria on face). High scores means good, low not so good. It was reassuring to know I scored high in UV and porphyrins meaning my sunscreen application has been good and my face is clean from bacteria. Victoria was my esthetician. She’s very nice, informative and gentle. The session was relaxing. She paid really good attention to my blackheads. After using the equipment for extraction she did manual extraction, which I appreciate. Manual extraction was the most discomforting, but tolerable for me. Victoria was nice enough to take before and after pictures for me. My skin is sensitive so I had some red spots after the treatment but was told it’ll go away in a few hours. You can see after the treatment my is more hydrated based off the diminished lines. Blackheads not as visible. Victoria will give you recommendations post treatment, for me it was adding vitamin C into my regimen. She she didn’t push any sales or product onto me. Hydrafacial maintenance is every 4-6 weeks. I’m all about self care, but don’t think I’ll be doing it every 4-6 weeks, maybe 8 weeks :p. They do have packages so do ask about the pricing for that if you want to save in the long run."- E.L. / Yelp / Jul 04, 2022
"I arranged a day of treatments at what can only be described as a true gem in Chicago. As a local I have many choices to where to go and whom to see. I can honestly say when it comes to a 5 star experience be it Botox, Fillers, Cheek Augmentation, Facial Rejuvenation, Chemical Peels, Liposuction, Eye Lash Enhancement, Cellulite Reduction, Fat Transfer, Skin Mole Removal, Lazer Hair Removal or indulging in the stellar skin care product lines you will find no better. The staff is welcoming, professional, and provide a service that is second to none. The spa features a beautiful aquarium and relaxing treatment rooms. I feel at home whilst there and the prices reflect great value for the luxury products used such as Glo, Latisse, Nouvell, Lytera and Neocutis which is really the best money can buy. Mick is my Doctor and he does everything he can to make me feel comfortable. I highly recommend him as he makes the entire experience very enjoyable and worth it, and accommodating to my extremely busy travel schedule. He is also is honest when it comes to what services I need or don’t...has not "overdone" any procedure. I suggest visiting Elysium as it is vast and above parr in every aspect. Distinction and elegance at its best. Elysium has made me feel forever young, like a diamond in the sun!"- C.G. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2017
"This place is wonderful. Dr. Mick Singh does a fantastic job, and all of the aestheticians are just as great. I’ve had multiple types of facials, chemical peel, and highly recommend the quality of their work. Plus their staff is extremely kind and welcoming. I always walk in and have a pleasant experience. And I’ve never had an difficult time getting an appointment. It’s the best!"- L.M. / Yelp / Aug 25, 2017
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
A team member at Elysium SurgiSpa will assess your skin in an exam in our Chicago, IL office before choosing a chemical peel for optimal results. On the day of your procedure at Elysium SurgiSpa, we will cleanse your skin before applying the personalized solution to the face, neck, or both. We will massage the solution onto your face and allow it to sit for a specific length of time. Next, we will wash the solution off your skin and put on a neutralizing agent. Patients should bring sunscreen or a hat to wear outside after the treatment to avoid environmental exposure. Depending on the level of the chemical peel you choose, you can expect your skin to peel and itch from several days to a couple of weeks. To allow your skin to heal and avoid any scarring, it's important to avoid picking at your face during the healing process. Once your skin has healed, you should notice a more even texture and a more radiant glow.
