Improve the Look, Feel and Health of Your Skin with a Chemical Peel

If you want to improve the look, feel and health of your skin, a chemical peel is a safe skin treatment that softens fine lines, rebuilds collagen, and lightens and brightens skin.

When you come in for a chemical peel, your doctor should carefully examine your skin. This is very important to determine the right process for you.

All types of light to medium chemical peels are available. So let your cosmetic surgery doctor or chemical peel doctor know if you are interested in a specific type of chemical peel.

During the chemical peel procedure, a peel solution is applied to the skin, which breaks down the ‘intercellular glue’ responsible for keeping multiple layers of dead cells attached to the surface of the skin. The peel formula exfoliates the dead skin, stimulating the production of fresh, new cells. Over time, you will see discoloration fade, fine lines disappear, and the overall hydration and health of your skin improve. Removing this barrier of dead skin also allows for increased penetration of topical vitamins and moisturizers into the skin. Superficial chemical peels can remove freckles, sunspots, and discoloration from injury or trauma, as well as increase your body’s natural production of collagen.

At Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter provides a superficial chemical peel treatment to Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia patients in order to improve the overall quality of the skin without downtime. Their gentle chemical peel formulas allow you to go directly back to work after your peel treatment.

Done at their office near Washington, D.C., in a series of six treatments at intervals of two weeks or more, they offer several different chemical peels, which address specific skin issues.

To help you determine which chemical peel is right for you, schedule a chemical peel appointment with a chemical peel doctor in your area.
