Microdermabrasion: A microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical exfoliating procedure that
achieves results by removing the top layer of skin and stimulating new skin growth. It is a
painless procedure with little to no downtime and is frequently referred to as a "lunchtime"
procedure. Microdermabrasion treatments are effective in treating fine lines, wrinkles, sun
damage, minor pigment problems, large pores and uneven skin tone. A series of 5-7
treatments is recommended with each treatment requiring less than 30 minutes. You can
return to your normal activities following your session with special emphasis on sun
avoidance and use of sunscreen.
We perform medical grade chemical peels such as VI peel and APothepeel using
compound acids available only to physician directed medical centers.
Lactic Acid: Increases elasticity of skin and improves fine lines and wrinkles. Treated
skin will feel more full and plump.
Lacti-bright (Lactic Acid, hydroquinone): Improvement of hyperpigmented areas, fine lines
and skin may have brighter smoother appearance.
Lite Jessner's (Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Resorcinol): Drying of active acne and
superficial blemishes, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultra Jessner's (Jessner's with Hydroquinone): Improvement of hyperpigmented areas,
fine lines and wrinkles. Dries active acne and superficial blemishes.
Jessner's Peel (14% Resorcinol, 14% Salicylic, 14% Lactic): The higher strength of
these components results in a much deeper exfoliation process (on average 3-4 days after
the peel you will have noticeable flaking of the skin). The result is great skin rejuvenation
and improvements in mild to severe acne, discoloration, reduction in appearance of fine
lines and wrinkles and overall sun damage.
Combining a medical grade microdermabrasion with the chemical peels allows
the peel to work at a deeper level of the skin. The end result is more significant in
Ultrasound (sonophoresis) treatment:
Sonophoresis (ultrasound facial) is a process that exponentially increases the absorption
of topical compounds into the epidermis and dermis. Ultrasound has been used since the
1970's to enhance penetration through the skin.
Sonophoresis acts by temporarily reducing the density of lipids in the intercellular domain
of the bi-layers. This allows the intracellular pathways to open up allowing substances of
higher molecular weight (topical facial compounds) to penetrate and absorb deeper into
The process of sonophoresis involves ultrasound waves that stimulate micro-vibrations
within the skin epidermis and increase the overall kinetic energy of molecules making up
topical agents. It is widely used in hospitals to deliver drugs through the skin.
Hot/cold hammer: Used in conjunction with facial treatments to open and close pores
while allowing more rapid penetration of topical products into the epidermis.
TCA blended peels (Apothepeel, VI peel): TCA (trichloracetic acid), Salicylic Acid,
Phenol, Retinoic Acid, Vitamins and Microelements. Experience the latest in peels with
the synergisitic blend of powerful ingredients that are suitable for all skin types. The TCA
blended peels leave dramatic results with little downtime! The peels will improve the skin
texture and clarity, reduce the appearance of age spots, hyperpigmetnation and melasma,
soften lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of acne skin conditions and stimulate
the production of collagen for firmer more youthful skin!

Answers to your questions:
How does it work?
Peels take away dead skin cells and compel the generation of new skin, thus improving fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, mild scarring and acne.
How long does the procedure take?
A typical treatment takes approximately 15 minutes.
Is it painful?
Upon application patients feel a slight stinging which subsides after a few minutes. A handheld fan helps to alleviate the stinging sensation.
What results can I expect?
Facial peels remove the outer "dead" layer of the skin (epidermis). You will gradually notice reduced fine lines and smoothness of the skin. It is recommended
that a series of treatments be done for optimal results.
Are there risks to chemical peels?
Complications from superficial peeling agents are rare. The most common side effects include erythema (redness), irritation and increased sensitivity.
How many treatments are required?
Generally 4-6 treatments once a month will give desired results.
Can I combine a peel with microdermabrasion?
This is by far the most effective way to improve the skin's overall appearance. The micropeel will further break down the cell walls to further penetrate nutrients
and moisturizers into the skin.
