Chemicals peels are used to achieve better skin tone and to remove fine lines, especially on the face. The Vein Guys® of Augusta offer chemical peels using salicylic acid and/or glycolic acid and will select the best solution for you after a thorough patient consult. You will see some results after a single treatment, but we usually recommend a series of six treatments (one every two to three weeks) to achieve the full benefits of smoother, younger looking skin.Who can benefit from a chemical peel?

At The Vein Guys® we begin with an evaluation of your skin and a discussion of your expectations. We select a specific chemical peel solution (ranging from very mild to very strong) based on your skin type, skin condition, pigmentation and desired end result. The solution is carefully applied and remains on the skin for a short time to remove the outer layers of skin which may have been damaged by age, sun or acne. The skin is then neutralized and cleansed and a moisturizer is applied.Will I experience any downtime after a chemical peel?
This is not the harsh process you may have experienced in the past! Our chemical peels are safe and effective, and most of our patients experience little to no recovery time.
