Chemical Peels in Valdosta, GA
Not all signs of aging can be corrected with plastic surgery. Chemical peels are recommended for problems on the surface of the skin, such as lines, acne, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Southern Vein & Laser Center offers chemical peels to men and women in Valdosta and Alpharetta, as well as surrounding areas in Georgia.
Chemical Peel Treatments
Chemical peels use a combination of chemicals that are found in consumer-level products, but at higher concentrations. The most common chemicals that are used include trichloroacetic acid, hydroxy acid and phenol. Chemical peels are categorized as light, medium and deep based upon how far the chemicals penetrate the skin as well as how many layers of damaged skin are removed during the procedure.
Benefits of Chemical Peel Treatments
The chemicals that we use for our peels treat a range of skin problems, such as acne, dry skin, dark spots, lines and hyperpigmentation. Light peels do not require downtime and can be repeated monthly. Medium peels require a relatively small amount of downtime and can be repeated every six months. Deep peels are recommended for the most advanced types of skin damage. The downtime is lengthy, and the treatments should not be repeated.
How Chemical Peel Treatments Work
Chemical peels have been used for hundreds of years to improve skin texture and appearance. Over time, the chemicals have improved to protect and even promote skin health while addressing aesthetic concerns. Many of the chemicals that are used for the treatments can be found in consumer-grade and professional skin care products, just at lower concentrations.
What to Expect from Chemical Peel Treatments
Each level of chemical peel uses a similar process — a chemical solution is applied to the skin and remains in place for a specific amount time. A neutralizing solution is applied, and the skin is cleansed.
Recovery does vary based on the level of chemical peel that is administered. No recovery or downtime is required for light chemical peels. For medium peels, you see a new layer of skin after three to seven days, and full healing can take up to two weeks. Deep chemical peels represent the most advanced type of peel. Local anesthesia may be used to keep you comfortable during the treatment. You will need to rest at home for at least one week, and full healing can take several months.
