Chemical Peels

Remove Your Wrinkles with Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.

There are several types of chemical peels:

  • Light peels to remove superficial wrinkles
  • Medium peels
  • Deep peels for more severe conditions

After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas.The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient’s skin. Significant improvement of damaged skin has been achieved, which can produce dramatic results.

Skin Rejuvenation

A skin rejuvenation program is often used in conjunction with either chemical peels or laser wrinkle removal to reduce the fine wrinkles of the face, lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and produce a softer texture to the skin. The program can be accomplished separately or in conjunction with the other procedures listed here and is followed at home by the patient after a consultation and a treatment plan is established for the patient’s cosmetic needs. Our skin care department is dedicated to providing you with the latest and most effective skin treatments available.We invite you to inquire about laser skin resurfacing and hope it can help you achieve smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.

Skin Tightening and Firming

Our Laser Treatments provide a complete anti-aging solution for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including, jowl and neck laxity, sagginess under the eyes, saggy brow lines, and nasolabial folds. Unlike conventional laser skin tightening treatments that are time and treatment intensive, and often too painful for many patients; we offer virtually painless and fast treatment for sagging and wrinkled skin. With our Cynosure, the tightening effects are delivered comfortably at a deeper level than competing technology. An advanced built-in chilled handpiece and external chiller device along with topical anesthesia make all the treatments comfortable. No other laser manufacturer in the world has this combination of technology.

In order to obtain the best results it is important to avoid tanning before and after treatments. There is no complicated aftercare required and no downtime with these treatments; however certain recommendations for best results are made with each type of treatment. This information is provided at your consultation and each treatment.

Microdermabrasion & Light Peels

Microdermabrasion and light chemical peels gently exfoliate the dead outer skin (epidermis) layer, producing fresh young skin cells and collagen resulting in softer and smoother skin. The procedures takes 30 to 60 minutes and there is no downtime. Treatments are recommended every 2 to 4 weeks. A series of 4 to 8 treatments are recommended. Optimal results seen after 8 to 12 weeks of treatment.

Light peels performed under medical supervision are safer, more concentrated, resulting in significantly deeper penetration of the fruit acid with far superior results than those found in conventional day spas and salons.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is ideal for people with sensitive skin. Micro-crystals delivered and suctioned through a delicate hand piece polish the outer skin. Treatments are frequently combined with a relaxing facial and or masque for optimal results.

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic acid, a natural byproduct of sugar cane, is the most potent of the alpha hydroxy acids. A Glycolic acid peel, a type of light peel, exfoliates the dead outer skin layer restoring a more youthful appearance to the skin. This non-surgical treatment is ideal for people with fine lines, age spots, and sun damaged skin. Treatments are frequently combined with a relaxing facial and or masque for optimal results. There is no downtime.

TCA Peel

Dramatically reduces deeper wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and skin discoloration. For optimal results, the skin is pre-treated with 4 light peels over a 4-week period. The TCA peel procedure takes 15 minutes, results in mild to moderate discomfort. No anesthesia is needed. A 3 to 5 day downtime is expected.
