MicroPeels are one of the most beneficial and economical aesthetic treatments for soft, smooth, bright, and healthy skin. This 30-45-minute treatment provides the ultimate in exfoliation with no downtime, improves cellular turnover, removes precancerous lesions, and rids your face of those pesky vellus hairs (aka, peach fuzz). Despite our best efforts, exfoliation at home cannot approach the results of a professional MicroPeel. For those who have yet to experience a MicroPeel, here are the steps:
- Dermaplaning – Your skin care nurse uses a sterile blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus hairs.
- Chemical Peel – Depending on your skin type and goals, a variety of chemical peel options continue the exfoliation process and reveal vibrant new skin with a soft, polished surface and even skin tones. These superficial peels do not cause visible peeling but they build new collagen and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
- Cryo-Therapy – We use CO2 to produce a small, intensely cold snowball that is gently massaged across your face. In addition to soothing your skin, cryo-therapy increases blood circulation, stimulates the immune system, decreases inflammation, removes precancerous lesions, and increases cellular turnover to reduce the signs of aging.
Makeup can be applied immediately and fresh, glowing skin is the only evidence of the treatment. When repeated at 4 – 6 week intervals, MicroPeels can be the key to beautiful, healthy skin throughout the year.
