A Fresh Start for Spring

Does your skin feel dry, rough, or wrinkled from the winter weather? Spring is the perfect time for a fresh start. Chemical peels rejuvenate the skin and reduce fine lines, restoring that fresh, smooth youthfulness that helps you meet spring with confidence.

TCA Peel

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a non-toxic chemical used to treat sun damage and age spots, reduce fine lines, and restore a softer, more supple appearance to the skin. Once a technician applies the TCA peel, it penetrates the tough top layer of your skin, causing it to dry and peel away over the course of several days. This exposes a smooth, under layer of skin that’s undamaged by exposure to the elements.

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid peels can remove superficial skin damage by peeling away the top, damaged outer layer of the skin. Glycolic acid peels refresh the skin, often resulting in a youthful glow, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with minimal discomfort. Several treatments may be necessary to gain the full benefits of a glycolic acid peel.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion procedures are performed by a certified technician in our office. A “lunch hour facial,” it takes between 30 minutes to an hour and requires minimal to no recovery. Skin may be reddened after microdermabrasion and it’s recommended that patients wear sunscreen and moisturize after microdermabrasion.

What to Know about Breast Augmentations

Women who want to enlarge their natural breast size or restore lost volume are good candidates for breast augmentation. Want to learn more about breast implants? We’ve written several blogs that offer in-depth looks into finding the right surgeon, deciding on implant type and scar placement, choosing the right implant size for your body, and even how to shop after getting breast implants. You can also reach out to our office to answer questions about breast augmentations.

What to Know about Breast Lifts

The mastopexy—more commonly known as breast lift surgery—is another popular breast enhancement procedure. Over time, skin loses elasticity. This often results in breasts that sag, losing their firmness and shape. Breast lift surgery removes excess skin and reshapes the breasts, restoring a more youthful appearance. This surgery can be performed alone—to lift and shape the breasts—or together with a breast augmentation to shape and lift the breasts as well as adding volume.
