Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). It is a popular treatment for all skin types and has no downtime. Results are glowing smooth skin, better product penetration, and makes makeup go on smoother.
Microdermabrasion, often referred to as microderm, is a popular cosmetic procedure that gently exfoliates the dead, outermost surface of the skin. New skin cells are exposed for a fresh, younger looking glow.
What are the key conditions that microdermabrasion can treat?
Microdermabrasion can be an excellent solution for a wide range of skin conditions, including:
• Fine lines
• Sun-damaged skin
• Acne and acne scars
• Scar remediation
• Excess oils
• Blackheads and whiteheads
• Enlarged pores
• Superficial age spots
A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve the texture and tone of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.
Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
A chemical peel is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the appearance of your skin. The potential result of the chemical peel depends on the type of chemical and technique used.
What can chemical peels improve?
We offer a variety of chemical peels:
Vi Peels are safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones, and offer specifically designed treatments that are convenient with minimal down time to address a broad range of patient concerns from young, acneic patients to mature, anti-aging patients, plus body peeling.
Advanced Corrective Peel by Skinceuticals
Formulated with an exclusive blend of clinical-grade acids and a maximized peel concentration of phenylethyl resorcinol, Advanced Corrective Peel dramatically diminishes the appearance of discoloration, while smoothing texture and refining the appearance of pores, to restore a brighter, more clarified skin tone. For optimal results, a series of 4-6 treatments every 4 weeks is recommended.
Glycolic Acid Peels (Multiple Variations)
Glycolic acid is a popular treatment for winkles and acne. Part of the AHA family of natural ingredients, glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and is a fruit acid. When applied to the skin, it helps to remove the “glue” that holds the older, rougher and dryer skin on the surface. When it removes that top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible.
Lactic Acid Peels (Multiple Variations)
Lactic acid is derived from sour milk. It’s an alpha hydroxy acid like glycolic acid, but is much gentler and helps the skin maintain its ideal PH factor. Although lactic acid peels are gentler, they usually provide many of the same benefits as the other peels, but in a less intense version.
Comprised of three primary ingredients: lactic acid to assist in the exfoliation of the skin, salicylic acid to aids in penetration, and resorcinol assists in the treatment of acne. A Lite Jessner is half the percentage strength of a traditional Jessner Peel.
