Consider Atlanta medical practice chemical peels and their benefits

Medical practice peels are an excellent solution that can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. However, in most cases, they are best saved for cooler weather. We want to help you to understand what happens in a chemical peel. It is a simple and safe procedure that uses chemicals to provide smoother, brighter skin. This is accomplished by removing the top layer of dead and dying skin cells. Chemical peels are provided in different strengths, and even with lighter peels, the skin is tight immediately after the solution is applied. Heat and/or hot weather makes the tightness more uncomfortable. In addition, for about a week after the procedure, your skin is more sensitive to the elements, including Ultra-Violet rays from the sun.

Ensuring the best chemical peel result

Medical chemical peels are beneficial for individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Regardless of when you decide to undergo a chemical peel, we recommend that you protect your skin with quality sun block. You must be diligent about applying s skin moisturizer, and just as important as the moisturizer, is hydration for your body. It is necessary to drink water every day, but even more so after a peel or exfoliation. Water in your system is crucial for the detoxifying process as well as for fostering the healing process. Proper hydration can be a factor that gives your cells a plumper look that can reduce some fine lines too.


Remember that sunlight at any time of the year, is damaging after an exfoliation or chemical peel. You should avoid prolonged sunlight, and use a sunscreen of at least 50 SPF while your skin is healing. Hydrocortisone cream, Aloe Vera gel, and Neosporin may be used to alleviate redness, burning or itching associated with a peel. We also do not recommend chemical peels for pregnant women.

It is advisable that you avoid consumption of caffeine or alcohol because these products can adversely affect the healing and moisturizing process.
