Three Steps to Better Skin

Three Steps to Better Skin | Elite Plastic SurgeryWe all want younger looking, vibrant, healthy skin. But the rigors of aging, coupled with sun damage, and our facial skin can take on a dull, lifeless tone. At Elite, we offer the SkinCeuticals® MicroPeel to counteract those factors and improve your facial skin dramatically.

What does the MicroPeel do?

The MicroPeel is a three-step treatment that removes a micro-thin layer of the outer skin on our face. This layer features many clogged pores and dead skin cells that get in the way of the healthier skin beneath.

The MicroPeel is an in-office procedure that combines dermaplaning, a light chemical peel, and cryogenic therapy to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The MicroPeel lightens areas of hyperpigmentation, improves breakouts and oily skin, and removes many skin imperfections.

What are the steps of the MicroPeel?

The MicroPeel is a three-step treatment.

  1. Dermaplaning— This is a manual exfoliation that is similar to shaving. A blade is held at an angle and pulled downward across the skin. This removes dead skin cells and fine hairs, and it primes the skin for the peel.
  2. Alpha Hydroxy Acid Peel— This is a light chemical peel. Using customized solutions formulated to create light skin resurfacing, this peel removes the outer epidermis and stimulates collagen remodeling to improve hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and skin imperfections.
  3. Cryogenic therapy— The final step is an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial freezing procedure that increases the rate of cell turnover and leaves the skin feeling cool and clean.

What are some of the benefits of a MicroPeel?

MicroPeels are great for removing the dull, lifeless skin that’s keeping your face from looking more vibrant. Beyond the specifics above, MicroPeels have other benefits:

  • Hydrate the skin
  • Condense pore size
  • Even skin tone
  • Reduce excess oil
  • Correct sun damage
  • De-fuzz the face

At Elite, our MicroPeels don’t require any recovery time. You may have some slight redness for a few hours, and you may have some light peeling for a few days. Otherwise, all you have to look forward to is brighter, better skin.
