Chemical Peels & Microneedling
Chemical peels use a gentle solution of chemicals to remove the top layer of skin on the face and reveal a younger, smoother skin underneath. Chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, correct sun-damaged skin, treat acne, and diminish scars. Several treatments required for maximum results. Prior to this procedure, you must stop benzoyl peroxide, glycolic and salicylic acids, or any exfoliating products 48 hours pre- and post-procedure. Cannot be in a chlorinated pool, have sunburn or a lot of sun exposure before or after for at least 48-72 hours. Cannot be on Retinol 5-7 days before procedure.
- 30% Glycolic Peel. 45 minutes.
- Obagi Blue Peel. 1 hour.
- PCA Peel 30/10
When you are looking for helpful treatments for your skin, you may feel lost in a sea of treatments and creams that may or may not be helpful for your skin conditions. Here at Pure Reflection MedSpa, we want you to be pleased with what you see in the mirror every morning, so we have scoured through the available treatment options and only choose to perform those that we know are effective. One of these treatment options that we approve and have already seen helping our wonderful clients is microneedling.
Microneedling is very similar to what it sounds like, a series of very small, very short needles that are used to puncture just beneath the skin. Often lined on a small roller or sheet, microneedling can be done over large expanses of skin in a short period of time. The size and depth of the needles leaves minimal discomfort, and the results can be astounding for many people!
One of the things that makes microneedling unique is that it is a treatment option that works for many different conditions. While there are some treatments that are very problem specific, microneedling seems to be beneficial in the treatment of a myriad of problems. Issues such as acne scarring, cellulite and even hair loss can be minimized and greatly improved with microneedling. Furthermore, many people love the fact that elastin and collagen production are both stimulated after microneedling, which leaves your skin feeling plumper, more youthful, and vibrant in appearance.
Microneedling can provide you with some wonderful results, and these results are often seen after the first session- a rarity amongst many skin care treatment options. Shortly after your first treatment, you can see your skin looking plumper and more vibrant. While multiple treatments might be required if you want help with deeper issues, such as scarring or hair loss, the first treatment can help give you the motivation and results to see it through.
After you have had your microneedling treatments, you will want to be gentle on your skin. This means that you will need to skip exfoliants and even washing your face for about 1-2 days. You should avoid makeup, swimming and even sweating and heat, as this can flush the facial skin and cause discomfort that is unnecessary. Our team would be happy to recommend some serums and calming creams to boost your microneedling procedures while also helping to calm and treat your skin.
At our medical spa, we ensure that our tools and procedures, including microneedling, are done very safely. You can feel confident and comfortable knowing that our tools are very clean and ready for your treatments. Because microneedling can cause problems if done improperly or with inferior tools, we recommend that you work with our professionals to get the best results that will give you all the benefits of microneedling without the risks.
