PCA Skin Chemical Peel in Fairfax, VA
What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are skin care treatments that exfoliate your skin. Many people use exfoliation to improve their skin tone and texture. But most at-home treatments rely on manual exfoliation, like rough scrubs or brushes.
Peels are different. They use specialized substances to gently dissolve dead skin cell, revealing healthy skin underneath. Chemical peels also clear away dirt and oil to produce a firmer, brighter complexion.
What skin care concerns do chemical peels address?
Chemical peels can help:
- Clear up acne
- Unblock clogged pores
- Freshen dull or dry skin
- Smooth uneven complexions
- Erase sun damage
- Reverse signs of aging
No matter what your skin care concerns, chemical peels can help improve your complexion. A qualified doctor like Dr. Jones can help you choose the peel that’s right for you.
What happens during and after a chemical peel?
At your first appointment at Contours LaserSpa, Dr. Jones carefully examines your skin. She asks about your lifestyle, your skin care goals, and any pre-existing medical conditions.
Before you receive a chemical peel, you may need to adjust your skin care routine. Dr. Jones can explain which products you can use before and after your chemical peel. You may need to stop using certain products in the days before your chemical peel.
The application of the chemical peel is a simple process. You lie face up on a padded table while Dr. Jones smooths the peel onto your skin. You can expect to remain in the office for up to an hour. During this time, Dr. Jones checks your skin regularly to make sure there are no adverse reactions.
You may notice changes in your skin tone and texture for about a week after the procedure. This is a normal part of the treatment process. Your skin is shedding dead skin cells, revealing fresh and healthy skin underneath.
What results can I expect?
Individual results may vary. Most clients notice significant improvements in their skin tone and texture.
Chemical peels are especially useful when combined with other skin care procedures. At Contours LaserSpa, Dr. Jones can help you develop a personalized skin care treatment plan that addresses all your concerns.
