Chemical Peel

A chemical peel uses different combinations of acids such as Jessner, TCA, glycolic and salicylic to smooth and improve the texture of the facial skin. Damaged outer layers of skin are removed during the process. The chemical peel is helpful to those who have wrinkles, blemishes, and uneven skin coloration. Chemical peel may also remove pre-cancerous skin growths, soften acne facial scars and even control acne.  These peels can be done in a series or as an individual treatment.  Some redness and peeling may occur after this procedure.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion can treat acne scarring, sun-damaged skin, brown spots and unevenly textured skin. Safe for all skin types, microdermabrasion will also soften fine lines and wrinkles and decrease the appearance of large pores.  The treatment utilizes a delicate hand piece through which powdered micro-crystals are glided across all areas of the face, neck, décolleté, and hands. The crystals are then removed by a suction leaving your skin smooth and polished.  Some redness and peeling may occur after this procedure.

All of the above-mentioned procedures remove the dead skin cells or the “protective” layer of skin.  It is highly recommended to avoid any sun exposure 24 hours after each procedure.  A sunblock should be used to protect the skin from any further damage.
