A chemical peel is helpful for reducing the appearance of light acne scarring, wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation such as age spots and freckles. Pre-cancerous conditions, including keratoses (rough, thick, reddish growths) also respond well to a chemical peel.
There are several types of chemical peels available at Loudoun Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: light peels are used to remove superficial wrinkles, while medium and deep peels are reserved for more severe conditions.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, our doctors will use a small applicator to apply the chemical solution to the specified area of the face. Excess solution is then removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas of the face.
The amount of improvement you experience will vary and depend on the initial condition of your skin. When significant improvement of damaged skin is achieved, you may see dramatic results.
