Simple, Quick, And Effective!
A traditional skin rejuvenation treatment, such as a chemical peel, may do wonders for your appearance. This time-honored method of skin rejuvenation uses a gentle exfoliation technique to quickly and noticeably improve the skin's texture and tone. YMD Medspa's chemical peels in Atlanta have been shown to provide long-lasting benefits.
What Is A Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a popular cosmetic treatment in which the skin's outer layers are removed by applying a chemical solution, revealing skin that's lighter, smoother, and more evenly toned. They can also enhance the skin texture, tone, and quality. Acids are the primary peeling agents used in professionally-administered peels.

How It Works
Peels come in a wide variety of substances and purposes. Not all chemical peels are created equal; some just act on the surface of the skin, while others can reach deeper layers. When choosing the best chemical peel for your skin, take in mind that certain peels exfoliate more than others. The results you want, your skin tone, and your current skin issues will all determine which chemical peel is ideal for you.
How Many Treatments Will It Take For Me To See Results?
We know you’re busy, and we respect your schedule. So just how long does the treatment take? Chemical Peels are quick and take just a few minutes to perform from start to finish. While Chemical Peels can be a standalone treatment, they are often performed with a facial, adding time to the treatment. Following a chemical peel Atlanta patients may begin to see results within a day or two. They will continue to improve as new skin cells begin to make their way to the skin's surface. Quick and easy!
What Is The Downtime For A Chemical Peel?
What precautions should you take after your chemical peel procedure? Post-peel care is essential. It's best to avoid exfoliating acids and harsh active ingredients, like retinol, and glycolic and salicylic acids, since the skin can be red, dry, and flaky for a few days after a peel. You'll also want to keep the skin well hydrated with a good moisturizer and protected with ample sun protection (to prevent pigmentation from developing). Whether or not you need to rest after getting a chemical peel depends on the kind of peel you get. After getting a peel, your skin may feel dry, slightly red, or irritated for up to a week. Chemical peels typically cause the skin to flake and peel.
In most cases, chemical peels can be performed without any negative consequences. But hyperpigmentation can develop following a peel, especially if you remove the exfoliating skin off your face too roughly. Due to the pore-clearing and skin-exfoliating effects of chemical peels, mild outbreaks are often experienced.
You'll see the effects as soon as your skin has healed. For a light or lunchtime peel, healing takes one day, but for a deeper peel, it may take 14 days or longer. It could take three to five peels to achieve the desired effects from a lunchtime peel.
