BetaPeels and SonoPeels
Patients often ask what they can do during the summer to reduce sun damage, treat acne, or maintain results from previous treatments. Most laser and light devices rely on a pigmented target (freckle, blood vessel, hair follicle, etc). If we treat over an area that is tan or recently exposed to the sun, the active melanocytes and extra pigment in the skin also act as a target for the laser energy. This increases the risk of complications or requires us to turn down the energy to a safe enough level which may not always be effective. A great alternative in the summer is SonoPeels™ and BetaPeels. The SonoPeel™ uses ultrasonic energy and gentle cavitational forces to remove the dead, scaly outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis. BetaPeels use salicylic acid, also known as beta-hydroxy acid, to gently exfoliate the dead surface cells and promote regeneration and renewal of the skin. Treatments will reduce sun damage, improve the skin’s overall tone and texture, reduce acne breakouts and can safely be performed during the summer!
Would you like to reduce the amount of damage created in your skin due to Sun exposure, acne and the aging process but are not ready to undergo laser treatments? Jessner Peels might just be the solution for you! Jessner Peels are chemical peels which are most often applied to the face, neck, chest, back, arms and hands to reduce the appearance of skin discolorations and improve skin texture. The peel solution is made up of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol. This medium depth peel which penetrates beyond the top layer of the skin causes the skin to regenerate and heal. Depending on the degree of damage present multiple layer of the solution may be applied to the skin to produce the desired outcome. After the application of the peel patients may experience “frosting” or whitening of the skin which can persist for a few hours but is a normal occurrence. Some redness, peeling, and flaking is also expected for about seven days after the treatment. Unprotected sun exposure is highly discouraged after this procedure to ensure proper healing and reduce potential side effects. Make sure you apply a sunscreen with zinc oxide and SPF 30 or higher daily. To achieve smoother, brighter and healthier skin with less noticeable pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes, two to three treatments are usually recommended with each peel scheduled two to three weeks apart.
