What Is MicroPeel®?
MicroPeel® is a safe and effective three-step process to more youthful skin. First, dead cellular layers of the skin are removed through dermaplaning. Next, an alpha hydroxy acid solution is applied to the skin. After the desired level of exfoliation is achieved, the acid is neutralized. The third step is a skin cooling process called cryogenic therapy, which immediately removes inflammation and cools the skin. You will notice incremental improvements in the appearance of your skin with each MicroPeel®. There is no downtime following a MicroPeel®. Some patients report some minor peeling for a few days following the procedure.
What Is MicroPeel®Plus?
The MicroPeel® Plus is designed to refine skin texture damaged by the sun and various skin conditions such as acne. This procedure is available in two concentrations of salicylic acid customized to your skin type and goals. After cleansing the skin, the MicroPeel® Plus solution is applied to the skin. After two to three minutes, the skin is rinsed. Most patients experience some mild peeling two to four days following the procedure for a brief time. Our patients are happy when they discover, after several treatments, that their fine lines and discolorations have been replaced with smoother, more youthful skin.
