Chemical Peels

How can a chemical peel help you?

They say youth is wasted on the young. After all, when you are a child or teenager you never have to worry about sagging or wrinkled skin. But as we get older, this is one of the main complaints people have. If fine lines and wrinkles are affecting your appearance there is a simple solution for giving you the more youthful look you crave without needing invasive cosmetic surgery: chemical peels.

A chemical peel is a quick and easy way to reduce the signs of aging. Our cosmetic dermatologists will apply a special chemical solution over the skin, which helps to exfoliate and remove the outer layers of the skin, where the most damaged skin cells are.

Chemical peels can be used just about anywhere on the body but the face, hands, chest and neck tend to be the most commonly treated areas. While a chemical peel can certainly target and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles it is also a great option for people looking to treat these skin conditions:

  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Dullness
  • Uneven skin tone and discolorations
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage
  • Rough skin
  • Melasma (brown patches)
  • Scars

A chemical peel may just be what you need to give your skin the glow it craves. Give our office a call at 703-709-1492 to set up a consultation!
