What are micro-peels?

Posted on 09. Mar, 2009 by in Chemical Peel, Microdermabrasion

A micro-peel is a skin care procedure that combines a microdermabrasion with a chemical peel. The procedure removes a micro-thin top layer of skin in order to regenerate the skin’s natural radiance, softness, smoothness and youth.

While microdermabrasion can produce excellent results on its own, when used in conjunction with the appropriate chemical peel solution the results are remarkable. The surface exfoliating action of microdermabrasion removes surface build-up for better penetration of the peel solution and more dramatic results. This combination treatment is very effective for sun damaged skin, fine lines, enlarged pores and acne. The process usually takes 30 to 45 minutes.

Generally, the skin will turn pink immediately after receiving a micro-peel treatment, but this color will fade within a few hours. Most women can apply makeup and return to their normal activities immediately following a micro-peel. The results of this treatment are often subtle improvements in texture and the appearance of refreshed-looking skin. Depending on the severity of the problem, the procedure may be repeated to achieve more dramatic results, and create smoother, younger-looking skin.

Most individuals see the effects of each micro-peel treatment about two weeks after treatment. To achieve the best results a series micropeel treatments are needed. It is also recommended to maintain your results you should receive micro-peels every one to three months after the initial six peels. As with any skin treatment avoid sun exposure and use a proper home care regime to achieve and maintain your desired results.

Micro Peels have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface skin. This skin care procedure combines two effective treatments to reveal a younger, clearer, more radiant complexion.
