Actinage

This chemical peel blend utilizes Vitamin A in combination with natural Salicylic, Mandelic and Azelaic acids to help clarify, smooth and brighten the skin. When it comes to acne, we need to exfoliate the dead cells off the surface, purge the oils and congestion from the pores, shrink the oil glands, and kill off bacteria. The unquie blend can help with just that. We recommend a series of treatments, one every 3-4 weeks. Acne can be hard, but you have to be persistant and consistant.

Microdermabrasion

Microderm is a manual exfoliating procedure using a vacuum-like wand with tiny crystals that slough off layers of damaged skin cells revealing softer, smoother skin and can even help with mild scarring. This treatment can also improve acneic-oily skin by removing the layer of dead skin cell that are blocking the bodies natural ability to purge oils and congestion trapped in the pores. Microderm is safe for all skin types, colors and textures and is an alternative to laser resurfacing and chemical peels for those patients who are sensetibe to these techniques. Although one treatment will make the skin look and feel better, we recommend a series of 6. One every 2-3 weeks apart. Microdermabrasions can be teamed up with free acid chemical peels to improve the benefits.

Chemicals Peels: Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic, etc.

Chemical peels have the power to shrink oil glands, kill bacteria, and diminish the appearance of large pores and acne scars. Unlike cosmetic peels you might purchase in the store or experience in a day spa, physician's strength chemical peels have the ability to go deeper, below the skin's surface and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin as well as new healthier skin cells. Salicylic acid is the primary treatment used for acne/oil, but we also use glycolic, lactic and mandelic.
