What are Chemical Peels?

At our Duluth, GA office, plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers chemical peel treatments that help to decrease skin flaws, such as scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. This treatment helps to dissolve damaged, dead skin cells by applying a special solution on the skin, which causes the visible layer of skin to peel off. When your skin heals and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should notice a clearer, smoother complexion. This is a great nonsurgical method to make your skin luminous and can also be used on the neck.

Variations of Chemical Peels

At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we offer chemical peels in multiple levels of strength (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate each of our patient's skin care concerns.

Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel on your lunch break and return back to your routine. This type of peel removes the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a brighter appearance and softer texture.

Medium-depth peels: This level of peel goes deeper into the skin for those who have deeper damage, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation problems, and is suggested to have before a long weekend at home. You may also prefer to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and up to one hour following the chemical peel.

Deep peels: This is an aggressive treatment that could leave your face itchy, peeling, and swollen for several weeks. Patients who get a deep peel typically have age or dark spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, or deep scars. Since this strength of chemical peel is usually uncomfortable for most patients, we will provide you with local anesthesia prior to your treatment.

What Are the Benefits of A Chemical Peel?

Based on the intensity of your peel, you can anticipate a number of these benefits from your chemical peel treatment at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery:

  • Moisturized, rejuvenated skin feel
  • Minimization of dynamic lines and aging marks
  • Balanced and neutral complexion
  • Shrinkage of pores and different skin flaws

Can I Get a Chemical Peel?

If you're thinking about getting a chemical peel, it's likely you have noticeable issues with your skin, including scars, rough patches, flaky skin, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and much more. The best way to determine if a chemical peel is right for you is by having a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang. Dr. Mang or another team member at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery will evaluate your skin in a consultation before choosing the chemical peel for your desired results.

How Does Getting A Chemical Peel Work?

Before your chemical peel, we'll have you get comfortable in one of our private treatment rooms where we will administer your peel. A team member will ensure your skin is cleaned prior to applying your personalized solution to the treatment areas. We will brush the solution onto your skin and let it set for a predetermined amount of time. Then, we will clean the peel off your skin and put on a neutralizing agent. You may want to bring sunscreen or a hat to wear outside after the procedure to protect your skin from sun exposure.

What Can I Expect After My Chemical Peel?

Depending on the strength of the chemical peel you receive, your skin will itch and peel anywhere from a few days to two or more weeks. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will give instructions on ways to care for your face following your procedure. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the healing process, it's not good to pick the skin off as this could cause scarring to your facial skin.

Chemical Peel FAQ

How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Mang can discuss your costs in your consultation as soon as he has developed your personalized treatment plan. The cost of a chemical peel can vary depending on the level you select. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery accepts several payments methods, and we often run specials on skin treatments like chemical peels. Buying a package with several chemical peel treatments can also help you save money.

What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
Which level of chemical peel is best for you will vary based on your specific skin issues and cosmetic goals. In your consultation with Dr. Mang, he can help you decide which peel is best for your skin. A few things you may consider are your overall health, the type of skin you have, the depth of your skin concerns, how long you can spend in recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. For your first peel, it's better to try a light peel and decide how you like the results. After this, you and Dr. Mang can alter your plan to discover the best chemical peel level for you.

Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are both facial treatments that treat surface irregularities to give your skin a softer appearance. The difference is that dermabrasion uses special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush) to remove the surface skin layer through a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve damaged skin cells. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss the advantages of both options and help you decide whether a chemical peel or dermabrasion best fits your needs and goals.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the peel used, you might feel mild discomfort during the application process. If you choose a light peel, you will feel some stinging, but this can be alleviated with a small fan. Deep or medium peels are good for deeper blemishes and longer-lasting results; however, they are usually more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, skin medications, and soothing ointments may be applied to help you feel more comfortable during your chemical peel. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will discuss skin care after your chemical peel to help your skin heal.

Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
A chemical peel may be combined with another skin treatment at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. In your initial consultation, be open with Dr. Mang about your skin problems so he can create a unique treatment plan to best address your goals. This might include an injectable treatment for wrinkles (like BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) along with your chemical peel to refresh your whole appearance.
