Facial Chemical Peels
As the skin ages, it loses its youthful tone, texture and glow. The skin becomes thinner, with age discolorations and wrinkles, changing the overall complexion. One way to achieve younger-looking skin is with facial chemical peels. Our team at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA, offers medical-grade facial chemical peels to maintain a more youthful appearance and healthy skin at any age.
What Is a Chemical Peel?
The skin cells are continually dying and changing, impacting the skin’s appearance. Exfoliation can remove the top layer of dead skin cells, but to remove and refresh skin at a deeper level, the top skin cells need to be gently removed. A chemical peel uses enzymes and natural acids to break down old skin cells and reveal new, fresh skin. This can also induce more collagen production to heal the skin, creating a firmer, smoother appearance. Facial chemical peels can help minimize or treat the following skin flaws:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Acne and other scars
- Dull skin
- Sun damage
Chemical peels are available in different grades and intensities. A mild chemical peel can be used to improve the glow or refresh the skin. For more severe skin flaws, a higher grade or more intense formula is needed. The recovery time depends on the depth of skin cells removed. More intense chemical peels can require several days for the skin to heal; mild chemical peels have little or no downtime after the procedure.
Facial chemical peel treatments can be used at all stages of life to improve the health and appearance of the skin.
