Chemical Peel

Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. If you want your skin to look smoother and younger, consider a chemical peel, which uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. You can improve:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin

Microdermabrasion

Skin Resurfacing can reduce the effects of aging on our skin. Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face a likely victim of these changes, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms and hands may be affected as well.

Skin Resurfacing with Microdermabrasion is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. A wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical peels, the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment.

Non-Ablative Resurfacing

Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing uses an array of high-precision microbeams to create deep, narrow columns of coagulation in the epidermis and dermis. A restorative, natural healing process is then initiated, accelerating the formation of healthy new tissue. This procedure requires little to no downtime. Patients can typically return to their daily activities with minimal redness or discomfort. A series of five to six treatments may be recommended for maximum benefit.

Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing is a procedure in which the SmartXide DOT laser system ablates a customized pattern of tiny micronized dots rather than the entire surface. This allows for a faster healing time and less downtime, generally 3-4 days depending on intensity of treatment. Can be performed comfortably with a topical anesthetic. One to three treatments may be required for maximum benefit. This procedure is ideal for patients with mild to moderate sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scars.
