Medical Grade Facial Peels in North Bethesda, MD

facial peel

Medical grade peels accelerate skin exfoliation through the use of a variety of chemical substances depending on the type of peel you choose. Peels address visible skin imperfections that result from acne, aging and sun exposure, including fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. The results - renewed, healthier looking skin and a more uniform complexion.


We offer a range of chemical peels in varying strengths. Dr. Faulkner or our Licensed Aesthetician can help you select the optimum peel for you. Peels are not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.

Keep in mind, you should plan to dramatically limit sun exposure and take extra precautions to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for at least one week following your peel. Results from a series of three or more peels are cumulative resulting in optimal benefits.
