Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments are a minimally abrasive procedures that exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. Patients with fine lines, dull skin or clogged pores may benefit most from a series of microdermabrasion treatments. This type of skin rejuvenation is also used to treat light scarring, discoloration, environmental damage, and even stretch marks. Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. How often you should get a microdermabrasion facial depends on your skincare needs. Most in-office procedures pack a bigger punch and treatments are often scheduled at 1-2 month intervals. Microdermabrasion is an excellent procedure to help maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen, keep skin feeling smooth, help pigment look more even and speed clearance of whiteheads.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin. Resulting wound healing processes begin to regenerate new tissues. The dead skin eventually peels off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Some of the many skin conditions chemical peels are used to treat are: acne, age spots, discoloration (blotchy complexion, uneven skin tone), dull complexion, fine lines (especially under the eyes and around the mouth), melasma, rough-feeling skin, sun-damaged skin. Some chemical peels require more downtime than others. There are many different chemical types to choose from depending on the severity of the skin issue at hand. Once your desires have been discussed and your skin has been assessed by one of our specialist, we will go over all the options we have available to best suite your needs and lifestyle.

Microneedling

Microneedling, also referred to as dermarolling, gets its name from the tool used, a dermaroller. The dermaroller looks a bit like a miniature paint roller, except it’s covered with tiny needles. When rolled over the skin, the dermaroller does two things. First, it allows for better penetration of products, thanks to tiny pinpricks that work almost like canals, allowing your products, often serums, since they’re the most viscous, to reach deeper into the skin. Second, it creates micro-injuries, which tell your brain to kick into repair mode. This prompts your body to send collagen to the epidermis, which is an important building block of healthy, radiant skin. More collagen, better skin. Microneedling works great for sunken areas on the skin caused by acne or chickenpox, as well as for fine lines, discoloration and general skin rejuvenation. This safe procedure isn’t just for the face though. It can also be used on many areas of the body, including the arms, neck, legs, abdomen, back and hands. We can customize microneedling to the desires of each patient. An anesthetic cream is applied to the patient’s skin to keep them comfortable during the procedure. The process typically takes less than 1 hour, and afterward, your skin can be slightly pink or red. You’ll need more than one treatment. This isn’t a one-time event. Depending on the skin areas treated and what you’re trying to achieve, somewhere between 3-6 microneedling treatments are typically required for optimal results. Treatments are usually spaced out three weeks to a month apart.

Vampire Facial

Microneedling can also be done with an electronic pen called a Dermapen. This deliveries a deeper penetration and is usually done in conjunction with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). This procedure is also referred to as a “vampire facial”. The reason why this procedure earned its nickname, the ‘vampire facial’, is because the micro-needling is immediately followed with platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own blood. You will have 2 small vials of blood taken. We than spin the blood down and extract the plasma (not red) part of the blood. The serum is then used immediately following the microneedling or dermapen. PRP contains a high concentration of the body’s own growth factors to stimulate a healing response. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into thinking there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated). The results of this procedure include improvement to the overall complexion, texture and firmness of the skin and a reduction in scars & pore size. This procedure has become more popular due to Kim Kardashian televising herself receiving this treatment.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a gentle, non-invasive form of manual exfoliation of the skin in which a specialist uses a surgical blade to gently exfoliate the outermost layers of the epidermis to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. This encourages the skin to regenerate new skin cells, leaving the complexion smooth, soft and vibrant. A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. Products even penetrate the skin better following this treatment. Dermaplaning is an extremely safe, non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types and colors and provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins. Dermaplaning cannot be performed in individuals who are using Accutane or blood thinners or who have active shingles, hemophilia, or weak delicate skin. A chemical peel done immediately after dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure that the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly. They go great together and we recommend the combination for optimal results. Dermaplaning can be performed every 3-4 weeks.
