Micropeels: The Next Step in your Treatment Plan
A micropeel combines two popular esthetic treatments, microdermabrasion and a chemical peel, into a single treatment session for an advanced exfoliation. Here at Renew, we perform a Silkpeel® dermalinfusion followed by a PCA® chemical peel to produce accelerated results. Both the infusion and peel are customized for your skin type and the condition that you are seeking to correct. Everyone's skin is different, so you can be assured that at Renew Dermatology, our Master Estheticians choose customized products for your individual needs and goals.
The best candidates for micropeels are experienced cosmetic clients who have received microdermabrasion and chemical peels separately in the past. If you are seeking a more intense procedure, the micropeel is the next progression in your treatment plan. Clients who do well with micropeels typically have skin that could be described as "tough," "thick," or "resilient." They may have a history of heavy sun exposure that has created uneven pigmentation and numerous fine lines, or have oily, thick skin with a rough texture and large pores. Because this is a more aggressive procedure, it is not useful for treating sensitive, extremely dry skin, or rosacea.
Things to Remember for a Successful Treatment:
Stop your prescription topicals, such as tretinoin, Retin-A®, Renova®, Epiduo®, Tazorac®, and any other retinols, glycolic acids, alpha-hydroxy acids, or other exfoliants, a MINIMUM of three days before and after your treatment date.
Avoid facial waxing for one week before and after your treatment date.
Stay out of the sun. Wear broad-spectrum spf 30 daily.
Avoid heat sources and heavy sweating after your treatment. Plan to have post-treatment peeling for up to one week after your treatment date.
During March and April 2013, we will be introducing micropeels as a single service for $200, or a package of 3 micropeels for $500. As a special gift, you will receive a complimentary PCA® C-Quench Serum with any micropeel procedure!
