There are several office-based procedures that can improve your skin. Some of the most common procedures include:
Laser skin resurfacing: Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to vaporize the top layer of skin, which triggers the body to produce new, healthy skin cells. This procedure can help to reduce wrinkles, age spots, and scars. Dr. Pepper typically uses either a Pixel™ Erbium laser or a CO2 laser.
Intense pulsed light: Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a cosmetic procedure that uses light energy to improve the appearance of the skin. It is often used to reduce wrinkles, age spots, and sun damage. IPL works by using a handheld device to emit pulses of light into the skin. This results in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and sun damage. IPL therapy is a relatively safe procedure, but it can cause some side effects, such as redness, swelling, and bruising. These side effects usually go away within a few days.
Chemical peels: Chemical peels use acids or enzymes to exfoliate the skin. This can help to improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of pores, and make the skin smoother. Light peels can be done in the office under local anesthesia. Deeper peels are usually done in the operating room under general anesthesia, usually along with other procedures.
Other treatments, offered by our nurses or aestheticians:
- Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that exfoliates the skin. This can help to remove dead skin cells, improve skin tone, and reduce the appearance of pores.
- Exfoliating facials: Exfoliating facials use acids or scrubs to remove dead skin cells
from the surface of the skin. This can help to improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of pores, and make the skin smoother.
