Chemical Peels

chempeels

The one truth about skincare is that it is never too early to start to take care of your skin.  Chemical Peels in conjunction with microdermabrasion is a great starting point to achieving your desire for younger, healthier looking skin and is still considered to be the “gold standard” amongst Dermatologists.  There are a variety of different chemical peels available and each type of chemical peel has varying benefits.  As part of your initial consultation we will discuss with you the various types of peels and the added benefit of microdermabrasion.  In addition, we will advise you of various cosmeceutical products available to maintain or correct various skin disorders and help devise a maintenance program so you may enjoy the results of your treatments for many years to come.

The goal of facial aesthetics and the endpoint to the series of treatments of chemical peels and microdermabrasion is to promote exfoliation of the epidermis (thinning), induce wounding of the dermis, and allow for increased lymph flow which provides cleaning, toning and reduced redness.  By wounding the dermis, the dermal layer will heal itself by producing more collagen that in turn will reduce or reverse dermal thinning, thus improving tone, texture, tonicity and reducing wrinkle precursors.

In essence, by wounding the skin we are allowing the skin to heal itself, reduce the thickening of the epidermis, allow for more blood flow and nutrients to the skin.  Promoting increased collagen production will allow for greater elasticity of the skin and correction prior skin conditions caused by UV exposure or of the aging process.

Glytone Peels

A Chemical Peel is a procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin. This can be used on face, neck, hands and back. We apply a chemical solution to the skin that we want to treat, exfoliating it and eventually causing the dead skin to peel off. The New skin should now appear smoother and less wrinkled.
