Microdermabrasion is an innovative technology that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the top layer of skin.
Acne is a skin condition that affects adolescents and adults. There can be multiple causes for acne and these include: clogged pores, P. Acnes bacteria on the skin, hormonal changes and genetics.
In order to treat acne it is important to remove the dead skin cells on the top layer to inhibit clogged pores and bacterial infection which can lead to acne and inflammation. We use different modalities depending on the cause of acne. We can treat acne using chemical peelings which consist of light fruit acid peels from Dermaceutic or Renophase. We can also use VPL (variable pulsed light) which is similar to IPL (intense pulsed light) and microdermabrasion. We also use dermaceutic products at home for a tailored skin regimen.
Chemical peels are used to improve imperfections of your skin because a thin layer of the epidermis is removed. This can be used to treat unevenly pigmented and wrinkled skin and improve the color and texture to create a radiant, healthy and youthful appearance.
