Microdermabrasion & Light Facial Peels
At Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists of Newburgh, New York, we perform a variety of light facial peels as well as microdermabrasion to restore a softer, smoother, more youthful facial appearance. These skin resurfacing treatments exfoliate the outer layer of damaged skin, revealing a new layer of fresh, young skin beneath. These are non-invasive treatments that take just thirty to sixty minutes to complete and involve little to no downtime. For optimal results, we recommend a series of four to eight treatments spaced two to four weeks apart.
When performed by an experienced medical staff, light peels are generally safer and more effective than those available at day spas and salons. We use a more concentrated peel that allows for deeper penetration and more dramatic results.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment which uses microparticles to gently exfoliate the top layer of damaged skin, stimulating new skin growth and collagen production. This is an ideal treatment for superficial wrinkles, superficial scars, acne, age spots, sun damage, discoloration, large pores and even stretch marks.
Glycolic Facial Peel
A Glycolic peel is a light peel which uses a chemical solution, glycolic acid, to exfoliate the outer layer of damaged skin. Glycolic acid is the strongest of the alpha hydroxy acids. Glycolic peels can treat fine wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, acne and dryness. There is no downtime and patients will enjoy smoother, more youthful looking skin.
TCA Facial Peel
TCA peels use trichloroacetic acid and are considered a medium-depth peel. They can dramatically improve wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, skin discoloration and other skin blemishes. This peel takes approximately fifteen minutes to perform. Patients may experience some mild discomfort, though anesthesia is not necessary. Recovery lasts about three to five days.
ClassicEuropean Facial Peel
This is a traditional deep pore cleansing facial. During treatment, the face is cleansed and impurities and dead skin cells are removed with a special enzyme exfoliation and steam. This is followed by extractions, a relaxing massage, and a facial mask for balancing and restoring moisture and elasticity in the skin. The Classic European Facial can be used on all skin types and will leave the skin clean and supple with an improved skin texture.
