Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels

Peels Offered at McLean Dermatology & Skincare Center

We recommend chemical peels to any patient who is looking to kick start a new regimen, prolong results after a procedure, or simply maintain their healthy skin. Peels exfoliate the top layer of skin cells, revealing a brighter, smoother complexion, and allow your topical products to work more effectively. They also stimulate your own natural collagen production, thereby providing long-term benefits.

Obaji Blue Peel

The Obagi Blue Peel® is a very effective procedure to maintain lifelong healthy skin renewal. It is considered a medium depth designed to penetrate to the Immediate Reticular Dermis (IRD). Penetration to the IRD dramatically reduces wrinkles and causes skin tightening. It is comparable to having a face-lift without the surgery. The Obaji Blue Peel® removes the layers of aged and damaged skin, and promotes the creation of healthy skin. The process smooths the surface of your skin, improves skin tone and color, diminishes wrinkles and shrinks pore size.

* In order to achieve optimal results, we require all patients to have prepped their skin with Obaji Nu-Derm® System, or one of our other hydroquinone systems, prior to receiving peel. Consultation required. Expect 7 days of post procedure peeling.

Eye and Lip Peel

Glytone by Enterpeel® eye and lip peel is specifically designed to improve the appearance of sun spots, fine lines, and signs of aging. Its key ingredients, TCA and Lactic acid, penetrate the skin where collagen remodeling take place. We recommend 2-4 treatments fone 2 weeks apart. For even better results, try combining with IPL, and Microneedling

Neck Peel

Glytone by Enterpeel® Neck peel is specifically designed to improve aging skin on neck and decollete, decrease mild hyperpigmentation around neck and decollete, fine lines and wrinkles, chrono-and photo-aging, reduce uneven skin tone. May help with loose sagging skin. For better results, ask to see if combining IPL and Kybella Injections would work for you.

Hand/Arm/Leg Peels

The use of TCA peel on hands, arms or legs can help with scarring, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Try combining with IPL treatments.

NEO•PEEL Glycolic Acid Peel

Solutions 20,40,50,60%
NEO•PEEL is an in-office superficial peel that combines glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of skin aging and help promote renewed smoothness and radiance. Our Aesthetician’s favorite peel to preform after an acne facial or deep pore cleaning. No peeling.

TCA Peels

Trichloroacetic Acid Solutions 10, 20, 30%
TCA peels are considered medium-depth peels. They reach slightly deeper into the skin than alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) peels-and thus often produce stronger results. These peels also have the advantage of being suitable for most skin types, including darker-toned skin. To avoid discoloration, however, people with ethnic skin need to follow a pre-treatment protocol that may include treating the skin with AHAs first.

TCA is a skin-resurfacing treatment: it removes dead skin cells, uncovering a “new” layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. As a result, it softens fine lines, minimizes superficial “age” spots and other skin discolorations, and generally improves the tone and texture of your skin. TCA peels are also very popular for diminishing the appearance of acne scars.

Can't say enough good things about this place! Thank you for going beyond my expectations!" - Hannah G., Falls Church, VA

The ride to McLean is definitely worth it!" - Tarah S., Alexandria, VA
