When it comes to a medical spa treatment for problem skin, skin resurfacing is a perfect choice. These non-surgical treatments have been found to be safe and effective for reducing common signs of aging and acne scars. The treatments have such a wide-ranging effect on the condition of the skin. And not only are most skin resurfacing treatments highly effective, the lack of incisions necessary means that you can return to your normal activities almost immediately in most cases.
Chemical peels make another great choice for skin resurfacing. We use a chemical solution containing special acids to gently peel away a small portion of the outer skin layer, triggering the production of new collagen and a renewal of the skin’s surface. Chemical peels are classified into three categories: light, medium, and deep. Each type is categorized by its strength, concentration, and depth of penetration. Light peels are basically forms of gentle skin exfoliation to treat dull skin and enlarged pores, while medium and deep peels are more appropriate for light to moderate scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Cosmetic lasers have undergone incredible advancements in recent years, making them an ideal medical spa treatment. We direct concentrated laser energy under the surface of your skin to encourage your body to remove old, damaged skin tissue affected by problems like sun damage, signs of aging, or acne scars. One advantage to undergoing a laser treatment is its ability to offer significant results without the need for incisions and the lengthy downtimes and complications that sometimes accompany surgical procedures.
