Stafford Area Dermatologist Explains Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an amazing way for patients in Stafford and the surrounding areas to improve the texture, tone, and overall youthfulness of their skin. This dermatological treatment can provide amazing results for adult patients who are ready to enjoy rejuvenation of a dull, tired appearance.

Chemical peels work by using a specific combination of ingredients to help in skin cell turnover. The chemicals cause the superficial layers of skin to flake off, allowing newer, healthier skin to surface. This can have a dramatic effect on the overall texture of the skin, and can provide a more youthful, glowing appearance.

This dermatological treatment is done for many reasons. It can assist in:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Improve sun damage
  • Reduce mild acne scars
  • Treat acne
  • Eliminate melasma
  • Lighten freckles
  • Improve skin texture and tone

At Washington Dermatology Consultants, we offer a variety of chemical peels. The depth of the chemical peel is determined by the strength of the ingredients. Peels that are more aggressive take longer for full recovery of the skin. Mild peels can be done without any recovery time, while others can take a week or two to heal.

This treatment is done relatively quickly at our practice. The process starts with a full cleansing of the face, followed by the application of the solution. It is left on the skin for just a few minutes to activate, and then is removed immediately. Patients leave the office with after-care instructions, and they are invited to call with any questions or concerns once they may have. Patients are briefed before they leave on what to expect from their recovery process, and what to watch for.

Patients interested in undergoing a chemical peel can speak with the team at Washington Dermatology Consultants during a consultation appointment. Call us today to schedule one, and feel free to learn more about the amazing treatments that can provide dramatic results. Patients love the ability to achieve a more youthful appearance after just one treatment, and many return for regular services to maintain the results.
