Chemical Peels | Facial Masks | Snellville GA
Chemical peels improve the tone and texture of the skin by removing damaged, outer layers of skin with chemical solutions. When applied by a trained esthetician, chemical peels are safe and extremely effective in fighting the signs of aging and reducing the appearance of blemishes.
They target sun damage (age spots), acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tones. Unlike some harsh peels that make your skin peel for weeks, all of the peels offered at Abraham Medical Cosmetics in Snellville, GA (outside of Atlanta) are superficial and require little or no downtime, which means you’ll be able to show off your new look practically immediately. We also offer custom facial masks for patients who have combination skin and/or multiple skin conditions.
Vitalize Peel® by SkinMedica®
SkinMedica®’s Vitalize Peel® will remove the damaged outer layers of skin that contain pigmentation irregularities (including melasma) without damaging the healthy skin beneath. While you will see visible improvement after just one Vitalize Peel®, those with significant pigmentation issues will benefit most from multiple treatments.
Illuminize Peel™ by SkinMedica®
A gentle treatment, this chemical peel will give you radiant, rejuvenated skin with very little or no actual peeling. While improving the skin’s tone and texture, this treatment also tightens the skin to leave you with a youthful, glowing appearance.
Rejuvenize Peel™ by SkinMedica®
Rejuvenize Peel™ by SkinMedica® improves pigmentation issues and acne scarring in just one session. Although it is a stronger formula than some of our other peels, it comes equipped with a built in anti-irritant to calm the skin while still allowing exfoliation of the damaged outer layers.
Blue Peel Radiance™ by Obagi®
This gentle peel by Obagi® will provide you with quick, painless results by exfoliating the damaged layers of skin to expose the fresh skin underneath. You’ll see significant results with just one peel, but may further accentuate your results by following with a regular after-care regimen of Obagi® products.
Patients with several skin issues or combination skin can benefit from one of our customized facial masks. After a consultation, one of our skilled estheticians can create a custom application that will address your specific concerns.
Chemical Peel and Facial Mask FAQ
How can harsh chemicals improve my skin?
While some chemical peels contain harsh chemicals, the products we offer contain ingredients strong enough to penetrate through to the dead, damaged skin cells and reveal the healthy skin underneath without the peeling and down time produced by stronger, acid-based peels.
How long is a typical chemical peel treatment session?
The treatment session time really depends on which chemical peel you choose; however, all of our peels take between 30 minute and an hour. In fact, some of our patients like to schedule treatment during their lunch break.
Are there any side effects or downtime associated with chemical peels?
Immediately after your peel, you’ll notice redness and possible facial swelling that should subside within 24 hours of the treatment. None of our peels require recovery or downtime, and most patients return to regular activities immediately. There are some chemical peels that will make the skin peel for up to a week after the treatment, but the peels we offer are mild with appreciable results the very next day.
How do I know which peel will produce my desired results?
It’s hard to suggest a specific peel without a proper consultation because what gives one patient their desired results may not work for another. After a consultation, we can tell you which peel will best suit you needs, or if a customized facial by one of our skilled estheticians would benefit you best.
