Chemical Peels in Chevy Chase, MD and Washington, D.C.

The skin comprises many layers, the outermost of which is called the epidermis; this is the soft tissue you see when you look in the mirror. The epidermis is a protective layer which can develop freckles, age spots, wrinkles, and dead skin cells. New skin is generated at the bottom of the epidermis. As old cells fall off, they are replaced by fresh, new skin cells from this deeper layer.

A chemical peel helps to accelerate the sloughing off a process that the skin naturally goes through. It uses an acidic solution to remove layers of the epidermis manually. Light chemical peels treat only the outermost portion of the skin, while medium depth peels penetrate underlying layers. There are many benefits to light, or superficial peels, and medium depth chemical peels. At Capital Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of chemical peels.

  • Superficial chemical peels provide light exfoliation, removing only the outermost layers of skin. These peels are ideal for treating uneven pigmentation, acne, and fine lines. They also restore a bright, healthy appearance. This is our gentlest peeling option, requiring no downtime after treatment. Recovery is minimal, and side effects include redness for a few hours. Light peels can be performed every few weeks, initially, for dramatic skin improvement and monthly for maintenance.
  • Medium depth peels offer a deeper peeling option than the superficial peel. A medium depth peel can treat deeper wrinkles and discoloration. This peel requires a longer recovery but offers more dramatic results. Typically, we use the medium peels to transform the skin and maintain results with regular superficial peels.

We exclusively use PCA Skin peels for both our light and medium depth chemical peels. Dr. Singleton loves this brand of high-quality, innovative peel, as they offer some of the best results in the industry with minimal downtime.

Dr. Singleton meets with each prospective patient before their procedure to discuss treatment goals and choose an effective peeling solution. He’ll also provide recovery instructions and each patient will leave with a post-peel skin care package. All peels are administered by Dr. Singleton himself in one of our comfortable, private treatment rooms.

Quality Skin Care Products in Washington, D.C.

The need for surgical intervention to correct cosmetic issues may crop up once every handful of years, but effective skin care is a daily necessity. The products you use at home can make or break success in your cosmetic results. When you use the right products, they enhance the results of your in-office treatments, leading to a better result and healthier skin. The wrong products can hold you back, making it impossible to achieve your skin care goals.

We know that choosing skin care products for your skin type and concerns is difficult. Let Dr. Singleton guide you to effective and targeted treatments for your best skin. We carry products from PCA Skin, Obagi, and Face MD. Each line was carefully chosen by Dr. Singleton; we only recommend products that we know and trust.

PCA Skin has been innovating skin products since 1990. The company was founded by an aesthetician and developed by a dermatologist. Their products are some of most innovative in the industry. We love PCA Skin for their line of chemical peels, which are the only peels we offer here at Capital Facial Plastic Surgery. Their extended product line is just as astounding; they offer solutions for every skin type, concern, and color.

Founded in 1988, Obagi products are long-held favorites in the aesthetics industry. This line was designed for problem skin, and their formulations are excellent for treating premature aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Dr. Singleton can help you create your own customized Obagi skin regimen, designed specifically for your skin type and concerns.

Face MD products are available exclusively to a handful of medical offices. This product line is medically developed using natural ingredients that are effective on all skin types. The line uses no artificial coloring or fragrances and contains no unnecessary additives or fillers. This product line is well tolerated by most patients and, with consistent use, yields dramatic skin improvement.

Dr. Singleton will help you select effective skin care solutions from one of our three available lines. He’ll also offer detailed information about how and when to use each product at home. He is very familiar with each product we offer and will happily answer questions.
