Hydration

The Hydration Peel is great for any age or skin type. This light peel removes the top layers of dead skin. New skin is revealed and the production of natural hyaluronic acid is stimulated in the skin to extend the results of the peel effects.

Acne

The Acne Peel is specifically designed to treat active or live Acne skins. It uses a combination of glycolic and salicylic acids to diffuse bacteria and get skin under control. A series of three treatments is usually recommended for this skin condition. We can also treat back and chest acne.

Brightening/Pigmentation

The Brightening Peel uses a concentrated percentage of Lactic acid to gently remove multiple layers of dead skin tissue that can house dark pigmentation spots caused by sun damage and age. This treatment is highly effective at lightening pigmentation issues for people with darker skin types such as Asian, Indian or African American skin without risk of post inflammatory reactions. Additionally, it is an excellent solution for any skin type with pigmentation issues due to acne, melasma or photo-damaged skin.

The treatment is not painful. Patients describe the treatment as a light scratching sensation.

One of the advantages of Microdermabrasion is that it has no downtime. In fact, our medical esthetician will finish your skin with a mineral makeup so that you can return to your normal routine. However, we do recommend avoiding the application of regular makeup until the next day if possible.

 

Will microdermabrasion help with acne scars?

Microdermabrasion can help lighten pigmented acne scars when combined with a light peel or medical facial.

Our medical esthetician will finish your skin with a mineral makeup so that you can return to your normal routine. However, we do recommend avoiding the application of regular makeup until the next day if possible.

 

Do I need to avoid the sun?

Exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided for 24 hours following the treatment. Part of the treatment includes the application of a non-carcinogenic SPF product for protection.

 

Can I have this treatment done while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?

Pregnant women should not undergo microdermabrasion.

 

What is the difference between a facial and a medical facial?

The term Medical Facial indicates that the treatment is an enhanced facial geared towards specific results. The treatment will involve active ingredients and solutions that are customized to your specific skin needs and concerns.

 

What is a Customized Advanced Chemical Peel?

The Customized Advanced Chemical Peel is a unique acid peel and is customized to your skins needs. This peel is safe for all skin types and utilizes a combination of three acids and is custom blended with potent nutrients and antioxidants making it a great peel for many skin concerns including aging skin, acne, rosacea, and dull looking skin. This Peel is also a potent stimulator of collagen and elastin. All Peels are PH balanced so not to irritate the skin, carefully applied by your practitioner, making it a relaxing treatment.

  • Brighter skintone
  • Calms acne
  • Calms rosacea
  • Healthier skin
  • Lifts hyper-pigmentation
  • Normalizes oil production

 

Is the treatment painful?

Chemical peels are not painful. Patients describe it at as a gradual heating up with an intense tingling sensation towards the end of the peel.

Downtime varies from person to person depending on their skin. The peeling begins 2-3 days after the treatment and can last up to 7 days depending on the layers applied and the strength of the peel.

 

Can I wear makeup after the treatment?

We recommend not wearing makeup. You will find it very difficult to apply makeup post peeling due to the flaking. When skin is peeling, it requires nutrients and healing ingredients to support the skin as it rebuilds a healthy fresh new layer.

 

Do I need to avoid the sun?

Direct exposure to the sun should be avoided until the peeling process is complete.

 

Can I have this treatment done while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?

Chemical peels are not recommended during pregnancy.
