During the comprehensive consultation the best skin care program will be discussed with the patient to insure desired results.
What is Power Peel®
The Power Peel® Microdermabrasion System is an intense exfoliation process that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine aluminum oxide crystals to remove the upper layer of the stratum corneum. At the same time, the hand piece of the instrument contains a vacuum tube that sweeps up both the crystals and the skin's cellular debris. This process exfoliates the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin which will result in a firmer, more youthful looking skin over time.
What are it's uses?
The Power Peel® Microdermabrasion System buffs the skin of fine lines and discoloration while refining texture and hue. Repeated treatments yield excellent results for scar revision (whether from acne, chicken pox, or even surgery scars) as well as some deeper discoloration, and melasma.
What results can I expect, and how soon?
Depending on the area treated, you will notice an improvement in your skin's appearance. Acne scars will be less obvious. Age spots and fine lines are greatly diminished and many patients report that their skin seems to be softer, smoother, and younger-looking. After your first treatment, your skin will have a fresh pink glow. Improvement continues throughout your treatment program. You will begin to notice visible results after about the third treatment.
What are Power Peel® treatments like?
With the aid of microcrystals vacuumed through a delicate hand piece, held at a precise angle to the skin, the technician effects a superficial skin polishing. In as little as 30-45 minutes, this gentle abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Treatments are applied through a course of weekly sessions. The Power Peel® Microdermabrasion System can enhance skin condition and do what no other available treatment can (without surgery) in combating the signs of aging skin. Most importantly, it is safe to use on all skin types and colors.
How often can I get a Power Peel® treatment?
Every 7 to 10 days for up to 12-15 treatments. Monthly treatments are recommended to maintain best results.
