Medical Grade Facial Peels and Microdermabrasion
We perform medical grade chemical peels using compound acids available only to physician directed medical centers. The higher strength of these componenets results in a much deeper exfoliation process (average about 3 to 4 days after the peel you will have noticeable flaking). The result is great skin rejuvenation and improvements in mild to severe acne, discoloration, wrinkling and sun damage.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Peels take away dead skin cells and compel the generation of new skin, thus improving fine lines & wrinkles, sun spots, mild scarring, and acne.
How long does the procedure take?
Generally a typical treatment will take 15 minutes, depending on what chemical peel is used.
Is it painful?
Upon application, patients feel a slight stinging which subsides after a few minutes.
What results can I expect?
Facial peels remove the outer “dead” layers of the skin or epidermis. You will gradually notice reduced fine lines and smoothness of the skin.
Are there any risks with chemical peels?
Complications from superficial peeling agents are rare. The most common side effects may include persistent erythema, irritation and increased sensitivity.
How many treatments are required?
We recommend a peel every two weeks for two months, then a maintenance peel every month or two.
Can I combine a peel with a microdermabrasion?
This is by far the most effective way to improve your skin’s appearance. The micropeel will further break down the cell walls to further penetrate nutrients and moisturizers into the skin. Microdermabrasion uses gentle physical abrasion to compliment the action of the facial peel. We recommend the sequence of a peel followed by microdermabrasion a week later for a total of four two-week cycles.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that minimizes fine lines, reduces acne scaring, evens out skin tone while smoothing the surface of the skin, leaving a vibrant glow. The results are comparable to a chemical peel or laser resurfacing treatment. However, a series of sessions are less abrasive, no anesthetic is needed and there is no down time.
