Combination Therapy

In some cases it is necessary to use combination therapy with could include combining Medical microdermabrasion, Glycolic Acid Facials and Cosmetic Ultrasound Therapy to work together to yield state-of-the-art, in-office superficial skin rejuvenation.

Medical Microdermabrasion

Tiny crystals of aluminum oxide are administered to the surface of the skin at a high flow rate and are then gently vacuumed off. This treatment leads to even, controlled shedding of the aged and sun-damaged skin leading to a smoother, more polished look.

In use since late 1990’s, medical microdermabrasion is the gold standard in superficial skin exfoliation. Patients say that makeup applies easier and their skin appears more youthful. We utilize one of the most advanced microdermabrasion systems known as Parisian Peel Prestige. Usually a series of 6 sessions are performed at 2-3 week intervals to achieve maximum results. Most patients continue to have maintenance enhancement sessions every 4-6 weeks.*

Glycolic and Salicylic Acid Facials

A type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid is derived from natural fruits and sugar cane. Repeated applications of Alpha Hydroxy Acids to the skin can help reduce sun induced aging including fine lines, pigment spots and rough scaly blemishes which improves the overall texture and smoothness of the skin. Salicylic Acid is also used to help control acne outbreaks.

A series of 6 facials are performed over a period of 12 weeks, with increasing concentrations of acid each time. Improvements in fine lines; color and texture are cumulative and can often be appreciated after just a few treatments. Improvement can then be maintained through the continued use of home skin care products and monthly in-office facials.*

Cosmetic Ultrasound

High frequency ultrasonic vibrations are used to help penetrate deep into pores and hair follicles to break up old skin cells, secre- tions and oily blockages. Also, skin metabolism may be increased which improves lymph flow leading to more rapid removal of skin waste products. The more waste products removed the better penetration and absorption of your skin care products. Deep tissue micro massage improves skin tone, softness and texture. All combined, these create younger looking skin.*
