Do you ever wonder if you could just peel away years of aging and damage from your skin to reveal a younger, youthful glow?
Fortunately, there is a way to attain younger looking skin—without drastic downtime, too! Our Athens chemical peel at Aqua Medical Spa can help you do just that. Say goodbye to skin imperfections and dullness, and hello to flawless, radiant skin
A chemical peel is a procedure to smooth the texture of your face. A chemical peel procedure accomplishes that by removing the skin’s damaged outer layer. At our Athens spa, we offer chemical peels to help you reveal brighter, smoother skin.
There are many reasons why people elect to have a chemical peel procedure, including:
The chemical peels performed by our Athens team are a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that removes the upper, damaged layers of your skin, leaving you with healthy, glowing skin.
When you schedule a consultation with one of our Athens physician-supervised aestheticians, they will create a treatment plan for your skin. Chemical peels typically take between 20 minutes to an hour. Your skin is thoroughly cleaned before the procedure and the appropriate chemical solution is selected based on your skin type and overall skin goals. Variations in chemical peel treatments include:
The peel solution is layered evenly onto your skin. There are a number of passes made with the chemical solution and a neutralizer, affecting the depth of skin layers and how long the chemical peel remains on your skin. It is then removed at the right time, revealing a fresh, new you.
After your chemical peel, you may be treated with a calming solution and instructed on how to care for your skin at home. Each peel has varying recovery time—some are immediate where others may take a few days for your skin to recover. Once your skin has healed, you can expect to see brighter, glowing skin…which we believe to be well worth the wait!
At our Aqua Medical Spa locations, we offer a wide range of chemical peels. All have different levels of exfoliation and peeling time. Here, they are organized based on the level of peel—from lightest peel to deepest level of peel.
