Facials and Chemical Peels
Facials and chemical peels are customized for your skin type and lifestyle.
Chemical peels can improve the skin’s appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
- Improve the appearance of mild scars
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
- Improve the look and feel of skin
Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. If you have darker skin, you may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated. But you also may be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure.
Exfoliate dead dry skin, minimize the appearance of scars, wrinkles & fine lines. Give your skin a youthful glow with Vibraderm, the newest form of MicroDermabrasion.
Vibraderm™ is a skincare solution, marketed as an easy alternative to microdermabrasion. A Vibraderm treatment can quickly and painlessly improve the appearance of your skin and is most successful for patients battling the earlier stages of aging, or young patients with skin damage due to acne. “Vibradermabrasion” can help treat mild acne scars, age spots, fine line and wrinkles, dull skin, and large or clogged pores. Many clinics use Vibraderm in conjunction with or as a preparation for chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing.
Dermabrasion is a procedure that sands away the top layer of skin. It can treat severe sun damage, but it causes bleeding and needs a week of recovery time. Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical option. Often called a “power peel,” it blasts the skin with tiny crystals that exfoliate the outer layer. This can reduce fine lines, brown spots, and mild acne scars – usually with little recovery time.
