Microdermabrasion involves the use of a diamond edge system, combined with vacuum, to rejuvenate and exfoliate the skin. By passing fine crystal granules over the skin’s surface, this system is a powerful but gentle procedure that removes outer dead layers of skin cells and refreshes and renews your skin. This procedure can be used alone, or in combination with facials and chemical peels to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, acne scars and other skin imperfections. These treatment combinations can be employed to significantly enhance overall results.
- Glycolic Peels
We employ the use of medical grade peels that range in concentrations from 30 % to 70% Free Glycolic acid, resulting in very low pH values, allowing for maximum performance. Glycolic peels are clinically proven to be effective in reducing skin aging effects such as fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, and photo damaged skin.
- Salicylic Peels
Skin cell turnover is enhanced utilizing medical strength Salicylic Acid Peels with concentrations ranging between 20% and 30%. These peels exfoliate the skin by eliminating surface cells and opening pores. This helps to visibly reduce the appearance of pore size, improve tone and texture and give an overall glow to the skin.
- TCA 25%
25% TCA peels are used to decrease moderate age (dark) spots, fine lines, small scars and coarse wrinkles. Providing medium-depth exfoliation, 25% TCA peels are formulated to minimize the inconveniences caused by higher percentage TCA peels, including pain and downtime. This TCA peel works best for patients experiencing moderate hyperpigmentation and more pronounced visible signs of aging.
- Laser Skin Rejuvenation (Syneron® RF/IPL)
Safely and comfortably fade the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun and uneven skin tones caused by brown and red spots. Highly selective light energies are absorbed by the blood vessels and pigmented skin cells resulting in improvement in such conditions as rosacea and age spots. This process helps specifically target damaged cells, while preserving adjacent normal tissue.
- Micro Peels
Microdermabrasion/Facial also known as “Lunch-time Peel”, is a safe, non-surgical, non-invasive skin resurfacing system. The massaging action of the Microdermabrasion treatment creates a deep exfoliation or flushing and cleansing effect below the skin surface. The result is a vibrant, healthy appearance and complexion. Microdermabrasion requires no anesthesia, can be performed quickly over the span of a “lunch break” and requires no “down time”. Although it can be performed as a single treatment, Microdermabrasion typically has its greatest impact when performed as a series of treatments. In addition to promoting overall skin health, Microdermabrasion is useful in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and restoring more even color and texture to the skin surface.
