VISIA® Complexion Analysis
Our office utilizes advanced technology such as the VISIA® Complexion Analysis System during consultations to more accurately assess your skin rejuvenation needs. Thanks to its updated software and UV lighting and photography, we’re able to capture high-quality facial images to assess age spots, wrinkles, skin inflammations, areas of hyperpigmentation, spider veins, and more before making treatment recommendations.
Also known as chemexfoliation, a chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure involving a chemical solution used to remove damaged layers of skin. These peels are commonly used to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, sunspots, and other skin pigmentation issues, chemical peels use chemical solutions of varying strengths, including phenol, trichloroacetic acid, and alpha-hydroxy acids.
Using a rotating brush to remove your skin’s upper dead skin layers and stimulate the formation of new skin cells, microdermabrasion is often used to enhance your skin’s texture. Reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and more with minimal recovery time required afterward.
Over time, the amount of collagen your skin produces naturally will significantly decline, resulting in more wrinkles, fine lines, and facial sagging. Using high-energy ultrasound waves to heat your skin’s tissues, ultrasound facials can penetrate deeper into your skin’s layers to stimulate collagen production for more youthful-looking skin. Benefits of this type of facial include tightened facial skin, exfoliated dead skin cells, faded age spots and scars, cleared acne, and the reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
