Chemical PeelsIs getting a Chemical Peel right for you?
What is a chemical peel? A chemical solution is applied and dissolves the upper layers of skin. As the skin dissolves, new skin cells emerge and the dead skin peels off.
A chemical peel can help improve:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age and liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough skin and scaly patches
- Sun-damaged skin
Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.
What types of chemical peels are there? There are several types of chemical peels that can penetrate deeper into the skin depending on the damage and desired results. You would need to have your skin evaluated to find what type of chemical peel to be used. Schedule a consultation today and our staff can help you determine which peel is best for your skin.
MicrodermabrasionDo you have dry skin, acne or just want to keep your skin healthy?
Microdermabrasion is a painless procedure that uses tiny crystals which exfoliate the face, back, chest and other areas of the body. This procedure mixes gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. This procedure can help to reduce mild acne scarring and hyperpigmentation (along with a chemical peel), improve the appearance of poorly textured skin, fine lines and clean out clogged pores. It is effective for all skin types and all ages over 12.
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or deep acne scars. Skin is temporarily pink but fully recovers within 24 hours. It doesn’t require surgery or anesthetics. That may help people who cannot take “down time” for healing.
