The micropeel is a non-invasive procedure performed by the doctor to rejuvenate and brighten your skin. This chemical peel relies on alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) to improve the evenness of your skin tone, brighten your complexion, and shrink your pores. After this brief 30-minute procedure, you’ll find years of aging erased and will be left with a more youthful appearance.
The micropeel procedure is non-invasive. Other options like laser therapies require a few days of recovery time because they require further prep and medications. It relies on the alpha hydroxyl acids to exfoliate dead and dying skin cells to allow for regrowth of healthy skin cells. This procedure is also pain-free because they’re the most of gentle of all chemical peels.
If you’re looking for a more youthful appearance, without pain or invasive surgery, the quick and convenient might be perfect for you.
This procedure is the perfect complement to your current skincare routine. However, unlike your current skincare routine, micropeels provide immediate results that last for an extended period of time. This is because of the increased strength of the treatment. After the treatment, you will notice smoother skin, less redness and rough areas, and smaller pores that offer an even skin tone. This procedure is a great option for those also seeking improvement of superficial wrinkles.
What does a micropeel do?
Think of the micropeel as an alpha hydroxyl acid powered exfoliator. The procedure works by using the acid solution to gently remove dead skin cells. Our skin care specialist will mix a solution that’s customized to your skin type and needs. She will then brush the solution on your skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. The length of time the solution is left on will depend on what she deems necessary; longer isn’t necessarily better.
While the solution is on your skin you might notice slight itching or stinging. This is normal. If, however, you experience intense burning or stinging you’ll want to notify our staff immediately. This rarely happens.
After the solution is removed, soothe your skin with dry ice, then a moisturizing cream. This helps balance your skin and bring it back to a state where you can go back to work or other daily activities.
While you’ll notice immediate results, you will continue to see improvements for up to six weeks. While this treatment is safe to undergo on a monthly basis, our team can help you determine what sort of treatment plan would work best for you.
What are the disadvantages of micropeels?
For the most part, there are few disadvantages to micropeels. It’s important to consult with our skin care specialists about the procedure to understand how it might impact your unique situation.
Generally, this procedure isn’t for individuals seeking treatment for deep wrinkles. Those who have thinner skin or sensitive skin could see redness that might take a few days to disappear. Our team can help reduce redness by choosing the best AHA concentration to use on your skin.
