Chemical Peel Q&A

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels at Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta are aesthetic treatments that use safe, FDA-approved chemical solutions to exfoliate outer skin cell layers and make room for newer, younger-looking cells to generate in their place. The result is youthful-looking, smooth, even-toned skin and self-confidence you deserve.

The Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta offers various chemical peel strengths, from mild to deep, based on your skin type and beauty goals.

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

The advantages of chemical peels include:

  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Smoother skin
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Even-toned skin
  • Refreshed look
  • Reduced sun damage
  • Diminished acne scarring
  • Less hyperpigmentation
  • Reduced melasma
  • Less skin redness 

Chemical peels help turn back the hands of time, revitalizing treated skin without pain or significant risks.

Am I a candidate for chemical peels?

Nearly everyone with aging skin is a candidate for chemical peels. To learn which cosmetic treatment best suits your needs, the Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta team discusses your desired results, reviews your medical history, and examines your skin.

What happens during chemical peels?

A dermatology specialist cleans your skin and, if needed, numbs the treatment area before applying a chemical solution to it. After a period of time, they neutralize the solution or wash it off. Your specialist may also apply a healing serum to treated skin.

Your skin may initially appear red, tender, and swollen after your treatment. Keep the treatment area clean and protected from the sun and follow your post-procedure instructions to ensure proper healing.

How often should I schedule chemical peels?

While stronger chemical peels take longer to heal, the results often last longer as well. Your Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta team lets you know when to schedule your next chemical peel based on the type you receive. You might undergo a peel once a month, once every few months, every year, or as needed.

Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta offers additional cosmetic dermatology solutions, including Botox®, dermal fillers, CoolSculpting®, hair-loss treatments, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), laser treatments, and many others. They tailor each procedure based on the condition of your skin and the desired results.
