What is a Micro Laser Peel?
A Micro Laser Peel is for those looking for little recovery time but wanted more than a light chemical peel or microdermabrasion. This procedure can treat scars, pigmentary problems, laxity on the face, neck, or chest, and wrinkles. While microdermabrasion treats only the top layer of the skin, a micro laser peel is considered to be deeper and often produces more impressive results.
I micro laser peel will be 10 to 50 microns deep. For best results, expect to have the procedure two to four times, six to eight weeks apart. We find most patients fully recover after three to four days.
What is a Lamellar Peel (Thermage)?
This procedure is a safe, clinically proven way to improve your skin’s overall appearance. It will tighten, smooth, and contour your skin for a younger-looking appearance.During a treatment session, we will stimulate your collagen. This treatment will improve your skin and will naturally change your skin tone and texture. A Lamellar Peel is non-surgical, and there is little or no recovery time.
What is a Chemical Peels?
This technique is used to improve a patient’s skin along their face, neck, or hands. Our experts will apply a chemical solution that will exfoliate your skin, causing it to peel off eventually. The new skin surface will usually appear to be smoother and less wrinkled than the older skin. Please keep in mind that the new, fresh skin will be more sensitive to the sun for a small amount of time.Generally, there are three levels of peels, each one increasingly deeper: Superficial Peel, Medium Peel, Deep Peel.
What is a Obagi Blue Peel Treatment?
This is a chemical peel designed to treat acne scarred or wrinkled skin and replace it with fresh, healthy skin. Much like other peels, the chemicals penetrate the skin to help peel it off. Results from this peel are often more immediate, and it is considered to be a more superior chemical peel. This chemical peel can only be used by trained professionals and is not available for individual use.
What is Microdermabrasion?
This treatment uses an abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing any thick, uneven layers of your skin. It also helps remove dead skin, letting your newer skin to show through. This rejuvenation technique is often used to treat light scarring, sun damage, stretch marks, or discoloration. It can help thicken your collagen, which will usually result in a younger appearance
What is Non-ablative Laser Treatments?
This laser skin treatment sends light energy into the skin and tissue underneath it. This results in the stimulating of collagen in your body, bringing a new freshness to your skin and give it lift.This treatment is much less aggressive than ablative laser treatments and results in quicker recovery time. This procedure is often used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars, sunspots, and age spots. Treatments can last twenty minutes to two hours depending on the area or areas being treated.
