Chemical Peels for Skin Resurfacing
SkinMedica Illuminize Peel
This peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that immediately delivers a “glow” to the skin without any skin peeling or downtime. This mild peel exfoliates dead skin cells similar to microdermabrasion treatments. It is ideal for individuals who would like something more invasive than a facial without any downtime of a full chemical peel.
SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
The peel is our most popular peel and for good reason. It exfoliates dead skin, resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, fewer brown spots, and less sun damage.* Two days after the peel is applied, the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for a duration of about two to three days. If you want to peel during the weekend, we suggest receiving this peel on a Wednesday evening.
SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel
This peel is the strongest of the three peel options from SkinMedica. It is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical-grade peels. These individuals are now seeing less shedding of dead skin when other chemical peels are performed. This peel may result in some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after it is applied. The duration usually lasts about three to four days.
Obagi Blue Peel Radiance
Obagi Blue Peel Radiance contains a unique blend of acids to provide a gentle, but effective, skin resurfacing peel resulting in tighter, smoother, and brighter-looking skin after just one use.* Salicylic acid-based peels are used to improve patient outcomes for a range of skin conditions including acne scarring, photodamage, and melasma. Blue Peel Radiance effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed, and radiant.*
This peel is a medical-grade treatment that consists of a synergistic blend of five acids, including Trichloroacetic acid. This skin resurfacing peel is effective for treating hyper-pigmentation and melasma; reversing sun damage and signs of aging; improving skin tone and texture; reducing acne and blemishes; stimulating collagen growth and elastin production; minimizing pores; and achieving younger looking skin.* This peel is recommended four times per year.
The Perfect Derma Peel
This peel is our newest chemical peel that utilizes a unique anti-aging ingredient called Glutathione, an antioxidant known to prevent damage to important cellular components caused by free radicals and peroxides.* The Perfect Derma is the only skin resurfacing peel that uses this ingredient to help repair and nourish the skin, improving hyperpigmentations, lifting melasma, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating and preventing acne and acne marks, refining pores, and giving the skin a radiant glow.*
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation
This cosmetic procedure improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries for facial skin and the body.* The skin resurfacing process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects. The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad-spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck, and hands—virtually anywhere sun damage shows.
Laser Hair Removal
This hair removal process uses an energy-based laser treatment to provide permanent hair reduction for unwanted hair anywhere on the body.* Laser hair removal is also effective in the treatment of Pseudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps). The High Speed Lumenis LightSheer DUET uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair, and with greater speed and comfort than other methods. This laser is able to safely treat men and women of many skin types and colors. A series of treatments is usually necessary for optimal results.*
Skin Resurfacing with Fotona QX MAX Acne / Acne Scar Revision
The QX MAX System
This cosmetic procedure and system offers a laser acne treatment protocol that provides a truly comprehensive solution to help resolve acne.* Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light safely penetrates into the skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.
For improving the appearance of acne scars, Fotona offers a complimentary laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which an Er:YAG laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.*
Fast Results Without Side-Effects
For active acne breakouts, Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects.* Fotona’s high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.
In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.*
Gentle and Effective Acne Scar Revision
For treating problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve skin texture and tone.* Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe, and simple procedure.
Other Skin Resurfacing Services
Dermafrac Micro-channeling System
This cosmetic procedure is an exciting new treatment combining micro-needling and deep tissue infusion. The new micro-needling treatment offers no downtime. Micro-needling infusion therapy is an advanced aesthetic treatment used to target many skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, pigmentation, open pores, congested skin, mild acne scarring, and dry, dehydrated skin.* Dermafrac uses a roller which contains 180 superfine needles to stimulate collagen production and cell renewal, helping to plump, firm, and smooth the skin.* As the roller creates the micro-channels in your skin, the Dermafrac system simultaneously enables the infusion of a potent serum to boost the impact of the needling treatment. This effectively leaves your skin with a glowing complexion.*
We always treat the skin with a three stage approach. Included in the Dermafrac treatment you will receive the following:
- Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion or Dermaplaning
- Product Infusion
Crystal Free Microdermabrasion
This process is a skin resurfacing treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture, and color by removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant.* It also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.* It is a wonderful alternative or complement to chemical peels or laser treatments.
This cosmetic process is a painless skin resurfacing procedure in which epidermal skin is removed by gently gliding a scalpel across the skin. This procedure helps resurface the skin by allowing products to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. It not only removes any dead epidermal cells, this process also removes unwanted hair, giving you healthier looking skin.*
This non-invasive process is a painless skin-tightening treatment that uses advanced radiofrequency technology without damaging the top layer of skin. The skin begins to produce new collagen after the first treatment, resulting in improved skin quality, firmness, and tightness.* This treatment takes 40 to 60 minutes, and requires no downtime.
These products are the #1 choice of skin care professionals. We carry a large variety of Jane Iredale® products, a mineral-based makeup that is recommended by the Skin Cancer Association for its UVA and UVB broad spectrum sun protection.
