Neo-Peel ( New treatment )
Neo-Peel is the next dimension in superficial peels. It combines glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture, as well as skin roughness and surface irregulatities. Following a consultation with the skincare professional, a series of 3 to 6 peels every 2 to 6 weeks is recommended. Impovement in skin tone and texture may be visible following one peel but more pronounced results require 3 to 6 peels.
A Patient Favorite! The MicroPeel is a 20-30 minute exfoliating procedure with no recovery time. By first removing dead cellular layers using a technique called Dermaplaning, a customized solution of glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid may be applied. A change in skin texture can be seen and felt immediately. A series of treatments may be recommended to even skin tone and texture, reduce breakouts, and restore your skin's healthy glow. Depending on your individual skin care plan, regular MicroPeels may be prescribed to keep your skin looking its best.
Biomedic MicroPeel Plus
The MicroPeel Plus utilizes a bacteria destroying 30% salicylic acid to effectively combat acne/oily skin. This peel reduces breakouts by loosening congested oil in the pores, killing bacteria, and reducing inflammation within the breakout. A light to moderate peeling or flaking may be experienced 1-3 days following this peel. Your aesthetician will customize your acne treatment plan and may include 2-4 of the MicroPeel Plus Peels.
This non-invasive peel utilizes a novel approach to chemical peeling with a new generation of acids. You will notice instant enhancement of skin appearance such as freshening, tightening, and brightening of skin clarity with minimal discomfort and little or no peeling. Excellent prior to special events!
This medium-depth chemical peel brings the benefits of a unique blend of intense peeling agents that include 0.3% Retinoic acid. Encouraging rapid turnover in skin cells, this procedure is especially beneficial for those with sun-damaged, aging, blemish-prone, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and general poor skin quality.
This peel is the deepest of the SkinMedica Peels, penetrating into the epidermis to produce significant results with minimal irritation. Appropriate for moderate to severe skin conditions including sun-damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scarring, and melasma.
Using state-of-the-art Microdermabrasion equipment that is only available in physicians' offices, we are able to improve the texture and tone of your skin with particle resurfacing. Microdermabrasion uses a jet of sterile microcrystals to gently exfoliate the skin. In addition to precise surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the deeper layers of the skin, cleans pores, and stimulates collagen production that can further improve skin texture. Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin and can treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees, and hands. This treatment includes a dermaplaning treatment prior to each Microdermabrasion session. Advanced Microdermabrasion can intensify your Medical Microdermabrasion procedure by adding the benefits of a customized light chemical peel.
Using the latest FDA-approved Intense Pulsed Light technology, we are able to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair for both women and men.
Hair Reduction works by selectively concentrating light energy in the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unchanged. This comfortable procedure can be performed in as little as 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area, and allows you to return to your regular activities almost immediately. Treatments can be performed on nearly any area of the face or body, nearly any skin color, and are effective on all but the blondest colors of hair.
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a non-surgical treatment that improves skin tone and texture. The IPL is much like a laser, but produces a broad spectrum of light instead of only one wavelength. IPL energy includes all of the light wavelengths that are optimal for removing a variety of discolored skin lesions (brown spots, age spots, freckling). The IPL also stimulates collagen to produce smooth skin and reduce pore size. In addition to the face, the neck, arms, legs and upper chest areas can also be treated.
IPL PhotoFacial treatments are gentle, with minimal discomfort. There is no “downtime’ after treatment - only temporary redness that fades within hours. Patients receiving PhotoFacial treatments do not need to take any time off from their usual activities. Improvement of age spots and dilated blood vessels can be seen after only one treatment, and skin texture progressively improves with additional treatments. PhotoFacials are one of the most effective treatments for facial redness due to rosacea. Your skin care specialist may recommend a series of 3 or 5 treatments scheduled 2 to 3 weeks apart.
