If your skin imperfections are mild, and you are seeking to enhance your overall facial skin appearance without having to undergo a more invasive treatment with a relatively longer downtime, you may be an ideal candidate for the Micro-Peel.
The Micro-Peel is considered to be light to mid dermal exfoliation or a mild refresher peel for the majority of skin types. It contains a combination of Resorcinol, Kojic Acid and Salicylic Acid.
Micro-Peel assists in evening out skin discoloration, reducing acne causing bacteria, stimulating collagen and elastin production to smooth lines and wrinkles, and improving the overall texture and luminosity of the skin. For optimal results the manufacturer recommends a series of 6 peels, spaced approximately 3-6 weeks apart. With each Micro-Peel procedure, you will notice incremental improvements in the overall appearance of the skin.
What can I expect after the peel?
Every skin is different, but your skin will undergo a renewal process whether you experience actual peeling, just mild flaking or no shedding at all. If peeling does occur, it typically starts 3-5 days post peel and lasts for approximately 3 days. In addition, you may experience mild itching, dryness and redness. The overall health and condition of your skin is probably the best gauge of how much shedding and flaking of the dead outer layers of your skin that you may experience.
A brief skin evaluation is the best way to be certain that you are a candidate for this service.
