Aging, sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle factors including nutrition, alcohol consumption and smoking all may contribute to facial wrinkling. The corner stone of skin anti-aging is a good daily skin care regime, microdermabrasion, and regual facials.
Pigmentary changes of the skin, such as blotchiness or brown spots, may also occur with age or as a result of birth control pills, pregnancy or genetic factors. Prior acne may have made the surface of your skin uneven. These problems, as well as certain other skin conditions, may be improved by a variety of skin treatment options.
What is a Peel?
Peels can improve all types of skin conditions including hyperpigmentation, melasma (pregnancy mask), acne scars, redness from post-inflammation, dullness, fine lines and wrinkles. Determining which treatment is right for you would depend on you skin care concerns. Now offering Lactic, TCA and Jessner treatments!
Am I good candidate?
You may be a good candidate for skin resurfacing if you have one or more of the following conditions:
wrinkled or sun-damaged facial skin
vertical wrinkles around your mouth, such as those that cause lipstick "bleed"
"crow's feet" lines around your eyes and perhaps some skin laxity in your lower eyelid area
fine wrinkling of your upper eyelids
brown spots or blotchy skin coloring
acne or chicken pox scars
superficial facial scars from a past injury
Requirments for a Peel:
Each client will need to pre-condition the skin for 3-4 weeks with a HQ/Vitamin A serum in order to ensure an even and successful resurfacing of damaged skin. The goals of the preconditioning regimen are to prepare the skin for improved penetration of the peel and faster recovery, but preconditioning also will improve skin appearance.
Number of treatments will vary person to person. Most cases will average on 4-6 treatments each spaced 3 weeks apart to exfoliate the skin and improve skin clarity and texture. If you have acne prone skin or hyper pigmentation you should
commit to a package of 5-8 peels in order to get the acne in control or to improve the discoloration.
