We offer the following in-office procedures:
A chemical peel is an acidic solution applied to your skin, which causes your skin to exfoliate. Benefits include diminishing fine lines, improving skin texture and tone, and decreasing discoloration. The exfoliation can sometimes result in peeling or can occur more at the cellular level, where the change will be less noticeable. There are a lot of different types of chemical peels available. The peels we offer are Glycolic Acid, Physicians Choice, SkinMedica and Trichloracidic Acid peels. Our staff can determine which type of peel would be best for you.
Microdermabrasion is similar to a chemical peel in that the purpose is to exfoliate the skin. However, the exfoliation is physical rather than chemical. There is greater control with microdermabrasion because concentration can be placed on trouble areas and settings can be adjusted according to skin type. Benefits include diminishing fine lines, improving skin texture and tone, and decreasing discoloration.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments
IPL is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes fluorescent pulsed light to diminish skin problems in targeted areas. The treatment consists of numerous “zaps” of bright light over the affected areas of your skin. Afterward, you feel slightly wind burned similar to spending the day in the sun. IPL is used for decreasing facial redness, diminishing broken capillaries, clearing freckles and sunspots, along with rebuilding collagen and elasticity
