Microderm Peel Treatment
When it comes to skin rejuvenation treatments, sometimes two are better than one. At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, our microderm peel utilizes microdermabrasion and a light peel solution. The natural ingredients in the peel solution help resurface and rehydrate your skin.
What is a Microderm Peel?
Microdermabrasion is one of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate the surface of your skin. Your technician will use a handheld tool to gently sand the outer layer of skin. This treatment removes dead skin cells and reveals a new and refreshed surface.You may feel a slight scratching sensation as the treatment is taking place, but it is comfortable to sit through.
Microdermabrasion can effectively treat multiple skin concerns. Some of these may be light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and uneven texture. We will clean your face before we begin the treatment to remove any skin oils that may inhibit absorption of the solution. Once we apply the solution to the treated areas, your treatment provider will leave it to dry for a set amount of time. The light peel will then work from the inside out, gradually improving your skin.
Our light peel ingredients are in the alpha hydroxy acid family, using a mild chemical solution that is suitable for first-time users or for those with sensitive or oily skin. These peels can help combat acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, dehydrated and damaged skin.
Are there any risks or side effects?
Both components of a microderm peel are safe and carry minimal adverse effects. Slight redness is common after a microdermabrasion treatment, which will subside quickly. The lactic acid peel alleviates the flaky, dry skin that results from this treatment.
The ingredients of our light peels are found in your skin. So, the risk of allergic reaction to this peel is minimal. Your skin will be more sensitive after treatment, and you may need to limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen after treatment.
When will I see results?
You will immediately notice the smoother, softer texture of your skin after microdermabrasion. The results of a lactic acid peel may be more gradual, but you will soon begin to notice new, healthy cells on the skin surface.
