• Microdermabrasion for Skin Damage
Microdermabrasion is the least invasive peel available. It is called the lunchtime peel mainly because you can have it done and go back to work with just a small amount of redness. It increases circulation, unclogs congested pores and gives you a nice healthy glow. In some cases, it may be combined with micro-needling.
• Obagi Blue Peel
The Obagi Blue Peel uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi.
Depending on the strength and depth of the peel, you will experience light swelling following the procedure. Within 2 to 3 days, your skin will begin to peel. This peeling continues over the next several days. By Days 7 to 10, your skin should be healed. Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin’s appearance should continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking.

• Laser Hair Removal
The Clearscan laser targets your hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. You may need to be treated from 3 to 5 times at intervals of 3 to 8 weeks: Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase. Hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed. However, if hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before.
Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and, in the process, produces collagen and elastin. Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin. This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars.
*There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away to eliminate skin damage. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
