Most people get facial treatments to maintain healthy skin. Others may need treatments to repair and restore skin. Read on to learn more about chemical peels and nonchemical exfoliation techniques that target acne, age spots, and other skin conditions.
5 Chemical Peels to Treat Spots and Acne
Chemical peels are far less scary than they sound! They are highly effective skin treatments for acne, damage, and discoloration. Here are five you may want to try:
- TCA (trichloroacetic acid) Orange Peel. This treatment dries out the top layers of skin so they peel off. It’s effective for treating skin damaged by the sun, and discoloration caused by UV and age (age spots). This can only be given by physicians; ours are administered by our Medical Director, Dr. Francis Toscano.
- Triple Effect Image Perfection Lift. This three-part service includes our modification to Jessner’s Peel. We target damage caused by sun, acne, and hormonal changes like age spots.
- Acne Lift. We use a beta hydroxyl acid formula that treats and heals lesions caused by acne in one treatment.
- 4-Layer Face Lift. This isn’t a surgical treatment, but a process to tighten and revitalize skin tone layers of Vitamin C, glycolic acid, and enzymes to speed up cellular turnover.
- Lightening Lift. A mild solution of lactic acid and treatment agents removes discolorations resulting from acne and rosacea.
Dermabrasions and Dermaplaning Repair Minor Damage
These two techniques target the top skin layers and level (or “plane”) them to refinish skin.
- Microdermabrasion. We use the BellaDerma Microdermabrasion treatment to safely remove the top skin layer, allowing the next to emerge. It’s a great way to reduce fine lines, remove surface scars, and shrink large pores.
- Dermaplaning. A special blade is lightly scraped across the skin to exfoliate the outer skin layers and remove peach fuzz. It also can remove some scars left by acne or surgery.
