What Is A Chemical Peel?

Your skin deserves the very best, which is why the team at First Body specializes in multiple effective chemical peels for clients with a range of needs. Your medical-grade chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will reveal smoother, healthier skin. At our Alpharetta, GA office, Dr. Arnaldo Jimenez and our team perform chemical peel treatments aimed at diminishing the appearance of skin flaws, like scars, wrinkles, fine lines, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead, damaged skin cells by applying an individualized treatment to your skin, causing the surface layer to peel off. When your skin recovers and begins to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel facial is a noninvasive option to make your complexion luminous and can be used for the face and neck.

What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

Based on the strength of the chemical peel, you can expect a variety of these benefits from your session at First Body:

  • Reduction in facial creases and signs of aging
  • Hydrated, revitalized skin texture
  • Evened and neutral complexion
  • Shrinkage of pores and different skin imperfections

Who Is a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Getting the suggestions of a skin professional is the first part of the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at First Body will evaluate your skin during an exam in our Alpharetta, GA office before selecting a chemical peel treatment for optimal results. Chemical peel patients, of both genders, typically have visible issues on their skin, including acne scars, rough patches, discoloration, flaky skin, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. We may recommend multiple types of chemical peels to fit your needs.

What Can I Expect During My Chemical Peel?

Your chemical peel treatment at First Body will begin with you lying back on one of our comfortable treatment beds as a member of our team washes and prepares your face. Our practice offers different chemical peel options for you to choose from, including:

  • skinbetter science® Peel: This effective solution from skinbetter science offers a high-strength treatment for skin that is sun damaged, rough, or showing signs of aging.
  • BioRePeelCI3 Peel: This fantastic option is used to help address a plethora of concerns, from acne and rough skin texture to signs of aging and dark spots. BioRePeel peels typically contain a combination of acids, enzymes, and other active ingredients to exfoliate the skin and promote skin renewal.
  • Jan Marini Transform Peel: This peel is can offer help in addressing concerns from blemishes and uneven texture to damage from the sun. The Jan Marini Transform Peel includes a combination of acids, such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid, to exfoliate the skin and stimulate collagen production.
  • Jan Marini Glycolic Resurfacing Peel: These peels can help to address a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines as well as deeper-set wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne, acne scarring, and more. Patients also report noticeably firmer, softer, and more radiant-looking skin. With virtually no downtime required, these peels can be a great option between more aggressive skincare treatments to keep your complexion looking bright and beautiful.

A member of our team will administer your selected chemical peel solution to your face and allow it to work for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment consultation. Then, we will clean the peel off your skin and put on a neutralizing agent. Chemical peels can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight so we advise you to bring sunscreen and/or a hat to protect your newly refreshed skin from damaging UV rays.

About Us
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?

The best chemical peel for you will depend on your specific skin needs and aesthetic goals. During your consultation at First Body, our team will help you select which type of peel is best for your skin. Some factors you may want to consider are your general health, your skin type, how deep you want the peel to work, how long you can spend in recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. For your first peel, it's better to start with a light peel and see how you like the results. From there, we can alter your plan to decide the best type of peel for your needs.

Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?

Both dermabrasion and chemical peels are facial treatments that correct surface irregularities to make your skin a smoother appearance. The major difference is that dermabrasion uses special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush ) to remove the top layer of skin with a careful scraping process. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve dead and damaged skin cells. Our team will go over the pros and cons of both options and help you decide if a chemical peel or dermabrasion best fits your needs and goals.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?

Based on the peel selected, you may have mild discomfort when it is on your skin. If you get a lighter peel, you will feel a little stinging, but it goes away quickly with the use of a small fan. Deep or medium peels are better for deeper skin issues and offer results that last a long time, but they can cause more significant discomfort. Numbing cream, skin medications, and ointments can be used to help you feel more comfortable during the treatment. Our team will discuss post-treatment skin care to maintain your results.
