When to Consider a Chemical Peel

When to Consider a Chemical Peel

Fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, uneven tone and texture — all common issues that can have a big effect on your complexion and your confidence. And guess what? No matter how well you care for your skin, these issues can — and almost certainly will — occur at some point.

 

But there is good news: Chemical peels can help. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) calls peels “one of the most cost-effective ways” to improve your complexion and eliminate flaws like scars and fine lines. It’s no surprise, then, that the ASPS says peels are among the top five most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatments.

 

At Wellife Center, our team offers multiple chemical peel options to help every patient at our Sandy Springs, Georgia, practice get the results they’re looking for. Here’s what you need to know about chemical peels and how they can help you look and feel your best.

How chemical peels work

Chemical peels use special solutions to gently loosen the uppermost layers of your skin. Within a few days or so, these layers peel or flake off, revealing smoother skin underneath. 

 

Peels come in different strengths, reflecting the issues they’re designed to treat: Stronger peels are used for deeper wrinkles, for instance, while a milder peel may be recommended to prevent acne breakouts. Most peels can be repeated to achieve greater benefits over time.

 

After your provider thoroughly cleanses your skin, they apply the peel solution to the treatment area, allowing it to remain for a specific amount of time (again, depending on the issue that’s being treated). Once the peel time limit is reached, your provider rinses the solution from your skin and applies a neutralizer. 

 

Most treatments take less than an hour, with peeling or flaking occurring within a few days. After your opeel, you’ll need to avoid direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen regularly to protect your skin. Our team provides complete skin care instructions to help you get the most from your peel.

What chemical peels can treat

There’s a reason why the ASPS heralds chemical peels as cost-effective solutions for improving the appearance of your skin: Peels are very versatile, which means they can be used to treat a lot of different cosmetic concerns, including:

 

 

By improving your skin’s texture, some peels can help enhance your skin’s firmness, too.

 

Peels aren’t just for your face, either. Many peels can be used to improve the skin on your neck, decolletage, back, chest, shoulders, and hands. Our team will select a peel option suited to your skin type and aesthetic concerns, so you can feel confident in your results.
