Chemical peels remove the outer layer of damaged skin cells to smooth skin texture and reduce imperfections. We use chemical peels in our Washington, DC, med spa to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, soften deep laugh and frown lines, repair sun damage, reduce age spots, and improve scars. Skin resurfacing diminishes the outward signs of aging and revitalizes the tone and condition of the skin.
