During these uncertain times, it’s important to remember to take care of yourself. Even when that currently means staying at home and avoiding crowds, there are still things you can do that are just for you! One of those is getting to know more about the kinds of skin care treatments available to you once the world gets back to a normal rhythm again. In that spirit, we wanted to share some information with you about the treatments available here in Alpharetta!
When you’re considering a non-invasive treatment to improve your complexion, there are almost countless options to choose from these days. And depending on your individual skin concerns, different treatments may be more or less beneficial in helping you achieve your complexion goals. Among all the types of treatments you may come across in your research, though, there remains a tried-and-true option you’ve likely heard about: chemical peels!
Chemical peels have been a staple of high-quality skin care regimens for so long because you can trust them to deliver noticeable results with minimal downtime. Another major benefit is that they are suitable for almost every skin type. Although you may have heard of chemical peels, do you know what a chemical peel treatment really involves? Here’s how a chemical peel works, and the kinds of results you can expect.
What happens during a chemical peel treatment?
During your personal consultation, prior to treatment, we will help you determine the specific type and intensity of peel for your skin concerns and goals. During the treatment, you can relax while we clean your skin. Next, we’ll apply the chemical peel to your targeted areas and allow that to rest on your skin for a predetermined amount of time. You’ll leave your treatment feeling intensely clean, refreshed and reinvigorated!
Is there downtime with a chemical peel?
The amount of downtime needed depends on how intense your peel was. With a mild peel, you can expect just some slight pinkness to your skin, but no downtime. Medium-intensity peels typically involve a few days of redness and peeling that gradually fades, revealing radiant new skin!
How soon do the results become noticeable?
Depending on how intense your peel was, you could expect to see your brighter, rejuvenated results within days to one week following your peel. If you have a major event coming up and want to prep your skin, chemical peels are a wonderful option! It’s just important to remember to plan at least one week ahead, if not two, to ensure your skin is fully healed and showing off its new-found glow.
