ABOUT CHEMICAL PEELS
A chemical peel is effective for the improvement of brown spots, sun damage, and a general resurfacing or tightening of the skin. Chemical peels can treat acne and greatly reduce the appearance of acne scarring and enlarged pores. This type of treatment helps exfoliate and smooth the skin, as well as improve the texture of the skin, creating a softer, glowing appearance. We can treat most places on the body, including the face, chest, hands, and back.
WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is a general classification for a number of chemical treatments used to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. Typically during a chemical peel, nothing actually peels off. As tissue is dissolved, a wound forms on the skin, which stimulates the body’s healing response. This causes new tissue to emerge. The depth and strength of the peel will vary based upon the strength of the chemicals used and the length of time the solution is applied.
Dermatology & Skin Cancer Consultants Reviews
Convenient location and friendly personnel, enjoyed a doctors visit and that is rare to enjoy going to the doctor!
I am posting this on my husband’s account, but I just wanted to share my experience here. Everyone that I saw was very kind—from the front desk to the back room. The nurse practitioner and nurse that I had at my appointment were very sweet and personable, and they took the time to make me feel better about my skin, which I appreciated because I tend to get nervous in doctor’s offices. It was my first time here, and I will use them again in the future if needed. I’d be happy to recommend this office to anyone.
I want to say these ladies go above and beyond to help with issues that you may have with your skin,and with Ms.Patrica she is happy and always caring when entering my room .She help me get my psoriasis under control. I always enjoy coming to the office cause I feel that I get all answers!
There is no other skin cancer physician, Moh’s surgeon or dermatologist I trust more. I first met Dr. Carranza over 11 years ago before her private practice. I was in a very fragile state and that’s the day she impacted my life forever. My skin cancer journey began a little over 15 years ago in my mid 20’s. I have seen other dermatologist’s and Moh’s surgeon’s in Atlanta, Memphis and Nashville- she is by far the most incredible. Her compassion, knowledge, professionalism, bedside manner is unparalleled to anyone. Sincerely, there is no other person I trust more with my skin cancer journey or skincare needs. Dr. Carranza is most thorough in every exam and procedure. She is persistent in advocating for her patients. She will take her time, listen and explain in a way you will understand. Many doctors these days lack empathy, not her. I noticed that from day one, she genuinely cares. You can tell that this field is a true love and passion. You will see that trait almost immediately after meeting with Dr. Carranza. Let me say this, I hate that people have posted they are upset because they had to wait. Moh’s surgery is not like going through a fast food restaurant. It is a procedure that takes time. You want your surgeon to take that time - making sure those margins are indeed clear. On that note if you do wait a little longer, have comfort because she will take her time with you. Her appointments are not like quickly cooking and flipping a burger to get to the next one. I promise she will impact your life in a positive manner. Trust her expertise and she will guide you in whatever dermatological needs you may have in your life. Dr. Carranza is bar none!
I am a new patient at this clinic and I was very impressed at how quickly I was able to get an appointment and how quickly they saw me once I arrived. I didn't wait long maybe 10 min to see the Doc. The staff was very nice and helpful and the Doc was so sweet and professional. I have moved all my dermatological care to this clinic and I am so glad I did! 😊

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH CHEMICAL PEELS
A chemical peel won’t take more than 30 minutes. We start by cleansing your skin and preparing it with a solution. We protect the sensitive areas of the face, like the corners of your eyes, around the lips, and nose, with a barrier. Finally, we apply the chemical peel. The amount of time the peel will stay on the skin varies from patient to patient.
Recovery time for patients will depend on the type and strength of peel they’ve had. The common alpha hydroxy and glycolic acid peels have little or no recovery time. A slight pinkness to the skin may be present, but it usually fades rapidly.
With the high concentration peels, you can have some peeling and irritation for a few days afterward. Very aggressive peels with very high concentrations can be more problematic. The post-treatment effects and recovery times can be similar to a total skin resurfacing with a carbon dioxide laser. Recovering from a deep peel can take more than a week.
We believe great skin starts at home.
