Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are both minimally invasive approaches offered by Dermatology Associates of McLean that will noticeably enhance the appearance of your skin. Chemical peels work to improve the texture of your skin by allowing it to shed any damaged outer layers. Microdermabrasion also removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells through the use of a mechanical exfoliating process.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion work to make you look younger by resurfacing the skin, which removes as well as prevents any further sun damage. The peels also activate the production of collagen, which works to tighten your skin and subsequently reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also reduce the appearance of acne scarring and brown age spots.
3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart are normally recommended for the highest level of effectiveness from peel treatments.
