Chemical Peels/ VI PEEL
Yes, chemical peels are safe for melanated skin!
Chemical peels have come a long way from the days of having to worry about hurting your skin more than helping it. Most patients with skin of color tend to be cautious of chemical peels. Some of the reasons can be hearing things like "chemical peels are meant for lighter complexions”, or "chemical peels don't work for people with melanated skin", both are myths.
We specialize in Skin of Color, so any treatment we perform is both SAFE and EFFECTIVE!
At Pretty Faces Atlanta, we use several types of chemical peels.
We use Trichloracetic Acid or TCA peels in varying percentages, and we also use Glycolic Acid peels.
VI Peel®, is our deepest, most aggressive chemical peel. This painless chemical peel will remove layers of dry, dead skin to unveil your most youthful glow.
Why choose a VI Peel? You can improve your skin’s tone and texture with just one treatment. VI Peel lifts scars and sun damage, boost collagen regeneration to tackle fine lines and wrinkles, and treats a number of skin conditions such as acne, melasma, and PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) to name a few.
The Perfect Derma Peel™
WHY CHOOSE THE PERFECT DERMA PEEL?
Please let Dr. Jing Jing know if you are using any retinoids or tretinoin products. If so, you’ll want to discontinue them for 3 days before your peel to avoid excess irritation. You’ll also want to avoid other cosmetic procedures in the weeks before your peel, so let your us know if you are planning anything stronger than a facial.

Superficial peels offered at day spas can give the skin a nice glow, but medical grade peels offer longer lasting results. The Perfect Derma Peel uses well known, safe and effective acids in low percentages to ensure a great result for all ethnicities, with little risk of side effects.
While no doctor or medical spa can guarantee a specific result for a single cosmetic procedure, Perfect Derma Peel patients often report dramatic results after their peel series!
Be sure to prep your skin (and your schedule) and plan your “down time” properly so that you enjoy an easy, stress free process and most of all, absolutely gorgeous results!
When The Perfect Derma Peel™ is performed in a series of 3 peels (typically once a month for three months) patients see clearer, more youthful skin and diminished signs of aging.
