Chemical Peels And Microdermabrasion

Peels improve skin clarity, tone and texture.  Chemical peels are a safe and effective way to treat mildly sun-damaged skin and early age spots or freckles.

Microdermabrasion can improve acne, rough skin, sun damage, uneven skin color, melasma, and some small scars.  They do not help with deeper wrinkles or lines of expression.

Illuminize Peel is a gentle superficial peel that increases skin glow and radiance.  It is great for first time chemical peel patients as there is microscopic, but no visible peeling.  Think of this peel as a skin refresher.  Great to have a week before a big event, photos, or a party.

Vitalize Peel is a moderate peel recommended for patients with mild to moderate sun damage, pigment irregularities, and acne.  Mild to moderate peeling happens for about a week.  Don’t make any plans you need to be photo-ready for until 2 weeks after the peel.

Rejuvenize Peel is an advanced peel that provides deeper penetration and exfoliation of the damaged top layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin.  This peel is good for pigment abnormalities and fine lines.  Moderate peeling can last for about 10 days and don’t expect to photo-ready for 3 weeks.  Since this is our deepest peel, patients must have had at least 1 Vitalize peel prior to ensure the Rejuvenize will be well tolerated.

SilkPeel Microdermabrasion (MDA)  The SilkPeel Microdermabrasion system is a safe and highly effective, clinically proven technique for precise exfoliation of the skin while simultaneously delivering a topical formula to target a specific dermatological condition . The system glides across the skin to remove dead and damaged skin cells, refine the texture and color of your skin and help improve acne.  It does not help with deeper wrinkles or lines of expression.  You may have seen the terms Parisian peel, diamond peel, or lunch-time peel.  These all refer to the same process – Silkpeel microdermabrasion.

How many treatments are recommended?  For best results, peels should be done in series of at least 3, spaced at least four weeks apart. Our medical staff will confirm the correct peel choice for your skin on the day of treatment.

Who will do my treatment?  Our registered nurses Rita Bauer and Melissa Paulson provide this treatment.

Who should NOT have this treatment?  Patients with melasma must check with a Provider prior to scheduling. In some instances, peels may worsen melasma.

If you are interested in having this procedure done please call our front desk at 206-215-6600 to schedule.  A consultation is not required, unless you have melasma.
