What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels in one form or another have been in use for thousands of years, to remove old skin and correct skin issues. The modern chemical peel just started to become popular in the past 30 years or so.

Patients love chemical peels because they are a quick and effective way to actually grow new skin that is softer and blemish-free. It can be used to treat acne, freckles, age spots, discoloration, large pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. It is often used on the face, but it can also be used for skin on the neck and hands.

In a chemical peel procedure, a solution is applied to the skin that causes the upper layers of the skin to peel off. When new skin grows back it looks and feels amazing. A chemical peel can be used with other procedures to give you the results you want.

At Zinney Facial Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Center, PCA Skin chemical peel treatment is used. The type of formulation used is specific to your skin type, has more benefit for the skin than a typical chemical peel, and is more comfortable when applied. The Jessner peel is one PCA Skin product – it is a combination of only the best skin-care ingredients, such as lactic, salicylic, kojic, and citric acid and resorcinol.

Besides beautiful looking skin, another benefit of chemical peels is that there is very little downtime and only mild side effects. Your skin may feel irritated and dry, and it may be red. If you are uncomfortable, typically an over-the-counter pain reliever will help. After a chemical peel you should stay out of the sun and make sure to wear lots of sunscreen when you do go out.

An expertly applied chemical peel from Zinney Facial Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Center in Marble Hill, GA, is a nonsurgical way to get younger looking and radiant skin. Call 678-210-5538 today!
