Skin resurfacing is the removal of superficial upper layers of the skin without causing wounding. Chemical peel solutions containing lactic acid, low concentrations of TCA, retinoic acids, salicylic acid, and glycolics combinations are good choices for gentle exfoliation. Microdermabrasion uses fine abrasive crystals and a vacuum suction to polish the skin. Epidermal leveling involves careful scraping with a fine scalpel. Results continue to improve with repeated treatments. Sun protection is paramount to maintain results.
Unlike a glycolic peel, these peels are not neutralized, washed off with water or timed. They are applied in multiple layers based upon the needs of the patient. The number of layers is determined by: skin type and thickness; advanced preparation of the skin and hereditary background.
This skin resurfacing treatment is designed for melasma, photodamage, pigment discoloration, acne, smoker’s skin and extreme sun damaged skin. We use a standard Jessner’s formula that is enhanced by incorporating lightening agents* into the peel solution. Great for obtaining even skin tone!
*This peel is available with or without skin lightening agents to allow for maximum flexibility.
