About Chemical Peels
To provide the best results from chemical peel facial treatments, Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness provides you with options. Your personalized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you healthier, more radiant skin. At our Las Vegas, NV office, cosmetic surgeon and board-certified family practitioner Dr. Reuben Thaker offers chemical peel treatments that help to solve skin abnormalities, like scars, fine lines, wrinkles, rough patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels remove dead, damaged skin cells by applying a personalized peel on your skin, which causes the upper layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you may notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive method to make your skin radiant and can be used for the neck and face.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At our Las Vegas, NV office, we perform medical-grade chemical peels from the proven skin care lines VI Peel and Jan Marini. Available in multiple levels of strength (light, medium, and deep), we will consult with you before determining which treatment will best meet your skin care concerns.
Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel during your lunchtime and return back to your day. This level of peel will remove the top skin layer (the epidermis), giving your face a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you receive a light chemical peel about once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This level of chemical peel reaches deeper into your skin, and you'll usually prefer to do this strength of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and up to an hour after the peel. Medium-depth peels are designed for patients who have significant damage to their skin, including deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep chemical peel, and it will require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that can leave your face itchy, peeling, and swollen for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who get a deep peel generally have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, prominent acne scars, and deep-seated scars. As this level of peel is usually uncomfortable for most patients, we can provide you with local anesthesia before your peel.

"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
Getting the recommendations of a cosmetic professional is the first step in the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness can assess your skin in an exam in our Las Vegas, NV office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for best results. Chemical peel candidates, both women and men, should have noticeable concerns on their skin, including rough patches, acne scars, discoloration, flaky skin, fine lines, sun spots, and much more. We may suggest varying strengths of chemical peels to match your concerns.
During your procedure at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness, we will have you lie down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized solution to your face, neck, or both. We will spread the solution onto your face and let it set for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Next, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. You should bring a light sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside after the peel to protect against UV exposure.
What to Expect
Depending on the strength of the peel you receive, you can expect the treated area to itch and peel from a few days to a couple of weeks. Dr. Thaker or a member of his team will go over ways to care for your skin during your procedure. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the recovery, it is never good to peel the skin off. You could cause scarring!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Thaker will go over your costs in your consultation as soon as he has developed your custom treatment plan. The cost of a chemical peel can vary based on the formula you select. Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness accepts many payments methods, and there are often specials on treatments, like chemical peels. You may also consider buying a package of several chemical peel treatments.
What skin care line and peel level should I choose for my treatment?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin issues and cosmetic goals. During your consultation with Dr. Thaker, he will help you choose which type of peel is right for your skin. Some factors you may consider are your overall health, your skin type, how deep you want the peel to work, how long you can spend in recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. Initially, it's better to select a lighter peel and see how you like the results. From there, you and Dr. Thaker may alter your plan to decide the best chemical peel level for your skin.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the chemicals used, you may have some discomfort throughout the treatment and shortly after. If you choose a lighter peel, you may feel some stinging, but it goes away quickly with a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are good for deeper problems and give you longer-lasting results, but they are usually more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, medications, and ointments can be applied to minimize your discomfort during the treatment. Dr. Thaker or a member of his team will explain post-treatment skin care to help your skin heal.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
You may consider combining a chemical peel with another skin treatment at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness. During your consultation, be honest with Dr. Thaker about your skin and cosmetic issues so he can create a unique treatment plan to achieve your goals. This may include injectable wrinkle treatments (like BOTOX or Juvéderm) along with your chemical peel to rejuvenate your overall appearance.
