Chemical peels can rejuvenate the appearance of the skin and treat acne, fine lines, and other blemishes by removing dead skin cells to reveal fresh, younger-looking skin. Chemical peels can be used as a stand-alone treatment; however, many patients find that this non-invasive treatment can enhance the results of their surgical procedures as well.
MicroPeel® with Dermaplaning
To treat extensive sun damage, deep wrinkles, and scars, we use the BioMedic MicroPeel®. The first step of the MicroPeel® is a dermaplaning procedure involving the use of a special blade to manually remove dead skin cells. We then apply a chemical solution to further exfoliate dead skin cells. We may also perform a third step, called Cryogenic Therapy, for some skin types and conditions. This freezing process involves the application of carbon dioxide to the skin in circular motions to reduce inflammation and make the pores look smaller. The MicroPeel® procedure produces smooth, healthy skin with a youthful glow, and can even remove surface hair.
