The best facial peels for aging skin revitalize Centreville complexions
Facial peels are a great way to refresh your complexion. This is a carefully controlled method of exfoliating dull, dead skin, without abrasion. The aesthetic skin care professionals at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia offer customized peels for all skin types. Let’s take a look at the best facial peels for aging skin, and how they rejuvenate faces in the Centreville area.
When is a peel appropriate?
The most common signs of an aging complexion are:
- Irregular pigmentation (brown spots)
- Rough or leathery texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Skin peels effectively address all of these conditions.
Peel options for younger looking skin
Mild peels containing gentle ingredients such as glycolic acid (derived from sugar cane) are good for the earliest signs of aging. For more noticeable sun damage and wrinkles, the doctors at DANV Centreville usually recommend a series of medium or deep peels.
Medium peels may contain retinoic acid and resorcinol. This peel exfoliates upper skin layers, reducing pigmentation spots and stimulating cell turnover. Within a few days, old skin flakes off, and a vibrant, soft, glowing complexion emerges. Most patients benefit from medium peels every three months.
TCA is an excellent deeper peel for moderate to severe wrinkles. Trichloroacetic is in the vinegar family of acids. It penetrates skin, causing controlled injury, something like a sunburn, so expect redness and mild swelling. Full exfoliation typically takes about a week. Our licensed Esthetician provides aftercare instructions to ensure beautiful results. We usually recommend a deep peel every six months to minimize wrinkles and refine skin texture.
