What is a micropeel?
The micropeel is a combination of a microdermabrasion and a light chemical peel. It reduces fine lines, softens acne scars, and reduces brownish-yellowish discoloration.
How is the treatment done?
The face is cleansed with a cell-loosening agent. A microdermabrasion treatment is then done to prepare for the light chemical peel. The chemical peel is applied, followed by a cocktail of hydration lotion, vitamin infusion serum, and sunblock.
Will this work for me?
This treatment is most effective for patients with fine facial wrinkles, sun damaged skin and brown blotches.
Is there any downtime?
There is a day or two of reddening of the skin, like a mild to moderate sunburn. Most people just go back to work that day or the next day.
Are there risks with the micropeel?
Some people might have an allergic reaction to one of the agents, but this is rare. We usually do a small test patch before performing a whole treatment.
