Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels in Chevy Chase, Maryland

Rome was not built in a day and neither were the layers of your skin. A chemical peel works by removing the outer layer of skin to reveal a more youthful vibrant appearance and can help you achieve a smoother, more refined appearance, especially if your skin has scarring. Avoid the embarrassment of being judged solely on your appearance, reduce skin sensitivity to everyday products, and boost your attractiveness with a chemical peel!

Why Choose Chemical Peels?

This procedure is especially beneficial for those who suffer from surface-level skin discolorations. It is a much more affordable way to show off your skin by avoiding the continuous purchase of skin creams and makeup. The results are long-lasting, and the procedure is relatively simple. 

Those who have chosen to get chemical peels experience a sense of confidence knowing that their skin is more vibrant and smoother. There is a sense of relief knowing that your physical appearance is just as beautiful on the outside as you are within.

What Does a Chemical Peel Feel Like? 

A chemical peel is not as painfully daunting as it sounds. Pain tolerance does vary from person to person. Most clients experience a brief stinging sensation that can be easily comforted with pain medication or a cool compression. The experience may cause some uneasiness, but the discomfort is bearable.

When Will I See Chemical Peels Results?

After a chemical peel, it takes time for the skin to heal. Typically, it takes about two to three weeks before new skin grows and your results are fully evident, though you may see results in as little as two or three days. Many patients see results after the first session. However, multiple sessions are required to achieve an ideal look.

You are likely an ideal candidate for a chemical peel if you suffer from any of the following:

  • A darker skin tone or complexion
  • Darkened scars due to extra pigmentation
  • Experience unusual skin scarring
  • Medications, creams, and treatments have caused your skin to become overly sensitive
