What is a SkinCeuticals® MicroPeel
The MicroPeel is a safe and effective three-step process that removes a micro-thin top layer of skin. This layer of skin consists of clogged pores that obstruct the development of healthy, beautiful skin. This in-office procedure combines dermaplaning, light chemical peeling and cryogenic therapy to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure lightens hyperpigmentation, improves texture and skin tone, as well as improve breakouts/oil and skin imperfections.
1. Dermaplaning – A manual exfoliation technique that safely and efficiently removes surface debris (dead skin cells) and prepares the skin for the chemical peel solution (AHA).
2. AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) – Using customized solutions formulated for lightly resurfacing the skin, this removes the outer epidermis, stimulates collagen remodeling to improve hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, texture and skin imperfections.
3. Cryogenic Therapy – This anti-inflammatory and antibacterial freezing procedure increases the rate of cell turnover and leaves skin feeling cool and clean.
This treatment requires little or no recovery time and could also be called a “lunch time” peel. You may experience slight redness and/or minor peeling in the days following the procedure. A series of treatments is recommended for optimal and maintained results.
