Micro Peel - Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC
The board certified cosmetic surgeons at the Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery serving Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC offer micro peels under the supervision of an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon.
Like other chemical peels, a micro peel is the process of applying a chemical formula to the skin to encourage new cell stimulation.
A Micro Peel works to smooth and soften skin leaving patients with a brighter complexion while minimizing discoloration and pores.
The process begins with a gentle removing of dead skin cells. A diluted Glycolic acid solution recommended by your plastic surgeon is applied to the treatment area.
Some patients experience minimal discomfort, such as mild, temporary burning and itching.
Regular activities may be resumed immediately following a micro peel treatment although some patients with fair skin may experience redness on the skin. Like most skin care treatments, it is necessary to continue to maintain the health of your skin with additional treatments and other skin care products to maximize your result.
