A chemical peel is a process where a chemical is applied to the skin and penetrates into the outer layers causing a slight peel. The new skin underneath appears smoother and finer in texture. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminshed as well as some sun-induced brown spots and pre-cancerous lesions. With healing, cosmetically desirable results are achieved.
Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium, and deep. The strong the acid, the deeper the penetration. Our office performs superficial and medium depth peels. Dr. LoBuono performs the mid depth peels which use trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA penetrates deeper than glycolic acid, and TCA peels are usually performed only once, while glycolic acid peels are generally done in a series. The superficial peels are performed by our Registered Nurse.
This office uses Neo-Strata brand glycolic acids. The strength baries from 20% to 70%. With Neo-Strata peels, the patient can expect mild discomfort that quickly diminishes. A series of glycolic peels results in softer skin, the clearing fine lines and wrinkles, more even skin tones, some shrinking of pore size, increased smothness, and an improved natural glow and radiance.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving skin more supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System removes this layer by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. Removing this outer layer leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin.
Skin Resurfacing also stimulates the vascular circulation to the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. DiamondTome™ rejuvenates sun-damaged skin, reduces age spots, minimizes blotchy skin coloring, extracts blackheads, and improves oily skin.
Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and requires no downtime. To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended for healthier, younger looking skin. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment. Our treatments include a cleansing, multivitamin masque, and moisturizing protection.
Botox® has been used therapeutically for over 16 years in 75 countries to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is the most studied botulism toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. Botox® Cosmetic, introduced in 2002, is the first Botulinum toxic to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows and “crow’s feet” by the outer corners of the eyes. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Patients should see results within days of their treatment, and the appearance of frown lines should continue to improve for up to a week. Visible results can last up to four months, after which further treatment may be required.
Xeomin® is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
What can I expect during treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject Xeomin® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required. Some patients observe visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after the injection. Maximum effect occurs in about 30 days and lasts 3 months or longer.
The Restylane® family of products, Restylane® and Perlane®, are cosmetic dermal fillers approved by the FDA to sooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin.
Restylane® was the first cosmetic filler made from hyaluronic acid that has been modified slightly to last longer than the human body’s own hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane® is the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA for lip enhancement in people over 21 years old.
The results are virtually instantaneous. Restylane® results last about six months in the majority of patients. Your doctor will decide which product is right for you based on evaluation of facial wrinkles and folds
