Exfoliation treatments are designed to create a uniform and controlled shedding of the dead skin cells. The result is improved tone and texture, softening of fine lines, and lightening of uneven pigmentation. Additionally, exfoliation assists the skin in building lost collagen and helps anti-aging products to more successfully penetrate the skin.
Exfoliation is accomplished either through a chemical or physical process. Aesthetic peels are chemical while microdermabrasion is the physical treatment utilized at the Center for Cosmetic Dermatology.
Through a complimentary skin care analysis, our trained medical providers will determine the most effective treatment and product regime to address your skin care concerns.
Chemical Peel treatments result in healthier, smoother, and more evenly toned skin by causing mild to moderate peeling of the skin’s outermost layers. Peels are effective in treating many concerns including acne, brown spots, and fine lines. These treatments also assist in building collagen. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments administered every 4- 6 weeks. Please inquire with your aesthetician to find out which peel and schedule is appropriate for your skin care concerns.
We offer the following types of peels:
We also carry Young Pharmaceutical and SkinMedica peels.
Deep peels performed by a Physician or Physician Assistant:
TCA • DCA • Jessner’s
Utilizing a controlled spray of fine mineral crystals, this treatment helps to reduce or eliminate many textural and pigmentation irregularities resulting from acne, sun exposure, and aging. Skin will be noticeably smoother and fresher after the first treatment. Microdermabrasion also has little to no “down time” and regular activities can be resumed immediately. It is often referred to as a “lunch time” treatment because of the lack of recovery needed.
We recommend a series of treatments spaced 4- 6 weeks apart.
Power Peel Treatment
By preparing the skin with microdermabrasion, the skin is better able to absorb the chemical peel giving you heightened results. Following the chemical peel, a soothing mask calms the skin. This treatment may be received monthly, but is not suitable for those with very sensitive skin.
