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.
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 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.
A gentle exfoliant technique to restore softness to the skin and reduce surface imperfections, microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells on the face to reveal the smooth, youthful skin underneath. 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.
