A chemical peel is the process of applying a chemical solution to the skin to smooth out its texture. It can be used to treat many skin issues, such as scars from acne, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
WHAT DO CHEMICAL PEELS DO?
A chemical peel is a very popular treatment in Atlanta as it helps promote growth of new skin by causing the top layers of skin to peel off using a chemical solution. Chemical peels also treat photo-aging, wrinkles, scarring, and discoloration.
WHAT WILL MY SKIN FEEL LIKE AFTER A CHEMICAL PEEL?
The state of your skin after a peel depends on the type of chemical used and your skin type. Superficial peels have limited effects given they only impact the top layer of the skin. Medium peels go deeper into the surface of the skin which can help with deeper acne scarring, but also causes a longer recovery time. Deeper peels may require 10-14 days to recover.
