Chemical peels or microdermabrasion are great tools to turn over the skin to reduce dullness and give a fresh glow. One great peel that is very versatile is the SkinMedica®️ Vitalize Peel used to address acne, pore size, pigment, or texture. Deeper peels such as the SkinCeuticals®️ Advanced Corrective Peel cause slightly more turnover but are designed to get more results in skin tone and texture. The SkinCeuticals®️ Pigment Balancing Peel is specifically designed to address pigmentation issues along with sun damage. Glycolic and salicylic acid peels can be added to dermaplaning to enhance the effects of treatment.
Microneedling using the Vivace RF is ideal for improving skin texture of sun-damaged or acne-scarred skin. The Vivace RF device has added benefits of radiofrequency and a blue or red light to enhance collagen formation and treat active acne. Microneedling is well-tolerated in all skin types with very little to no downtime. Combining microneedling with growth factor treatments or platelet rich plasma (PRP) may augment results.
Sciton® Halo laser treatment is great for skin texture, pigment, and pore size. This treatment can be performed in a series to target deeper wrinkles and texture. The Sciton® Forever Young BBL treatment can address redness, brown spots, and stimulates collagen. Combining the Sciton® BBL treatment with Sciton® Halo treatment yields impressive results.
