A safe and effective procedure to treat chronological aging and photoaging.
Dermaplaning removes the topmost layer of the skin surface, improving skin texture immediately. Lactic or alpha hydroxy acid is applied to help free the pores and debris. Finally, cryogenic therapy reduces inflammation and cools the skin. A series of MicroPeels promotes cell turnover and improves the skin color, texture, and tone. For maximum results, a series of six treatments is recommended.
The Biomedic MicroPeel is a thirty-minute glycolic acid treatment designed to exfoliate the skin, improving its clarity, tone, and texture, while it helps to reduce precancerous lesions. The MicroPeel is used twice a month for correction and once every four to six weeks for maintenance.
What Are Lactic And Glycolic Acids?
Lactic and glycolic acids are naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) found in fruits and other foods. AHAs are used in formations to exfoliate or shed the surface skin. The extent of exfoliation depends on the type and concentration of the AHA. At high concentrations, AHA functions as peeling agents, which act more rapidly, and at a deeper level.
Is The Biomedic MicroPeel Right For My Skin?
For sensitive skin, an acid-free or 2% lactic acid BioMedic MicroPeel is recommended. For a more rapid exfoliation, the BioMedic MicroPeel can be preformed with glycolic acid at concentrations of either 20% or 30%. Remember: always consult a physician when choosing your treatment.
What Results Will I See?
MicroPeels are designed to refine skin texture damaged by environmental factors and skin conditions such as acne. The procedure assists in smoothing fine lines and evening out skin discoloration while reducing the appearance of acne scars and environmental damage to the skin. With each additional MicroPeel procedure, you will notice incremental improvements in the overall appearance of your skin.
Will I Experience Any Downtime?
There is usually no downtime associated with the BioMedic MicroPeel. However, depending on the customization of the MicroPeel, you may experience minor peeling in the days following the procedure.
