At Washington Dermatology Consultants, we strive to help our patients feel better about their skin by offering customized treatments for various medical and cosmetic concerns. A reliable, convenient treatment that can successfully address several early signs of aging and photodamage is the chemical peel.
Chemical peels are highly versatile and therefore a suitable Dermatology treatment for most of the people who visit our Arlington and Stafford offices. Using extreme care, we are able to adjust the variables of a chemical peel to safely achieve the most beautiful result. The term chemical peel itself can lend to the idea of harsh solutions and lengthy recovery. The treatments provided in our office, however, are far more pampering than aggressive.
Lunchtime facials are the mildest chemical peels available. These treatments are typically completed within an hour and they leave no immediate aftereffects. Mild chemical peels do not take you out of your busy day. You can return to work, class, or your normal schedule as soon as you leave our office. Any redness that is visible following treatment fades within thirty minutes.
You can accomplish a lot on your lunch hour
Our lunchtime chemical peels consist of a precise solution, one that may contain a substance like glycolic or salicylic acid. This solution is applied to clean skin and left on for a set length of time before it is gently washed off. Ideal for treating mild signs of sun damage or age, this lighter peel, with mild active ingredients, is left on the skin only for a short time. However, the skin receives ample benefit.
Though mild in nature, a lunchtime chemical peel loosens dead and damaged cells, allowing healthy new cells to shine through. Treatment also provides stimulation to new cells, prompting the production of collagen, which increases elasticity and firmness.
Due to the gentle nature of these pampering peels, they can be applied every few weeks. Many of our patients schedule routine peels as a way of maintaining healthy, vibrant skin for a longer period. Chemical peels are ideal for the treatment of various concerns, including:
- Early wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Aging skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Mild acne scarring
While chemical peel treatment is great on its own, we often incorporate peels into a comprehensive treatment plan for total rejuvenation. Chemical peels can be an adjunct treatment for laser skin resurfacing, dermal fillers, and treatment with Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. In a customized combination of treatments, beautiful, youthful results can be achieved, leading to greater satisfaction and confidence.
