CHEMICAL PEEL

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

A chemical peel is a facial tretament made to rejuvenate the face by exfoliating dead cells gently over a period of several days. We offer a variety of peel levels to choose from, each one differing in intensity. Chemical Peels use active ingredients to exfoliate the outer layers of skin, so fresh and new skin cells can surface

TYPES OF CHEMICAL PEELS

These peels are light peels that use chemical properties of AHA fruit acids for stripping of top layers of the skin.

Illuminize Peel: This peel is appropriate for mild skin imperfections as determined by your physician. It brightens the overall appearance of the skin and gives you a more uniform complexion.

Rejuvenize Peel: This peel is appropriate for moderate to severe skin imperfections as determined by your physician. It smooths the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness.

Vitalize Peel: This peel is appropriate for mild skin imperfections as determined by your physician. This peel also smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness.

The three step ZO Skin Health peel works to combine a professional peel that improves the skin's quality with at-home products to help extend the results of your peel.

TCA Peels are the most intense peels and can treat a wide variety of skin concerns. This peel is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to further enhance your results.

MICRONEEDLING

MICRONEEDLING
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling treatment creates controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism (cellular regeneration) by creating ‘micro injuries’ in the skin to trigger new collagen synthesis without posing risk of permanent scarring. So, like aerating your facial skin.  These tiny channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical-grade topical products.

MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT

Performed by Medical Aesthetician, Wendy Ventimiglia.

BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING

Medical Microneedling can drastically improve the appearance of acne scarring.

This treatment can also be used to address wrinkles because of the new collagen production. Collagen breaks down as we age and is responsible for smooth and younger looking skin. 

MICRONEEDLING RECOVERY

IMMEDIATETLY AFTER
WHAT TO EXPECT

Appearance of the skin post treatment will vary depending on the depth of the needles. Immediately after treatment, skin may appear red/flushed, tight and sensitive, or slightly swollen, similar to moderate sunburn. These side effects should subside between 24 and 72 hours.

ONE TO TWO MONTHS
WHAT TO EXPECT

The results gradually appear over 2-3 weeks and continue over next 6 months.

So, like aerating your facial skin.  These tiny channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical-grade topical products.

This can be performed safely on all skin tones and types.  It is sometimes preferred over laser treatments because Microneedling doesn’t pose any risk of burning the skin. 

This minimally invasive procedure can reduce appearance of acne scarring, enlarged, rough skin texture, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, redness, stretch marks, and minor laxity of aging skin. 

Treatments are usually scheduled for about 90 minutes for the face (which includes time for numbing) but may require more time. The number of treatments depends on your skin’s condition and desired results.  We typically recommend 3+ treatments scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart to start.

TREATMENT EXPERIENCE

When you schedule a skin rejuvenation treatment consultation with one of our three medical aestheticians, Maryann, Monique, or Wendy, your goals will be discussed and a skin examination will be performed to decide which treatment path is best for you. The treatment starts with a cleansing of the face, and then the first chemical peel layer is applied. The amount of layers and time spent on the skin is determined by your medical aesthetician.
