Using the Fotona ER Yag laser, micro-laser peels target deeper irregularities located throughout the top layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion has a lot of benefits. This controlled depth treatment increases cell turnover while safely removing layers of injured skin cells, decreases signs of sun damage, and decreases pigmented acne scarring while smoothing out fine lines and giving the skin a healthier and brighter appearance.
- Minimal down time needed
- Refreshing effect on the skin
- More precise and controlled than chemical peel
- Evens out pigmentation
- Erases fine lines
- Option to incorporate skin tightening to further treat deeper wrinkles and laxity of the skin
Microdermabrasion is a great starting point on your roadmap to healthy functioning skin. Microdermabrasion requires zero down time and begins the cell renewal process by eliminating the outermost layers of the epidermis encouraging the basement epidermal cells to regenerate. For those who are experiencing pigmented and erythematic acne scars, several microdermabrasion treatments may be required for a more aggressive exfoliation treatment than those that can be performed at home. Each treatment ultimately pushes the more superficial pigmented scars closer to the surface, eventually eliminating them.
- Sloughs off debris that can lead to clogged pores
- Lymphatic drainage helps to eliminate toxic build up within the tissue that can lead to acne breakouts
- Loosens up and draws out black heads and comedones which can lead to acne breakouts
- Micro circulation draws nourishing blood to the cells
ZO 3 – STEP PEELS
ZO 3-Step peel utilizes 3 types of exfoliation:
- MECHANICAL POLISH utilizes magnesium mineral crystals to gently polish the uppermost layer of the epidermis. Polishing the skin encourages better absorption of other active ingredients to aid in the skin’s renewal process.
- ENZYMATIC EXFOLIATION helps dissolve the “glue” that holds the dead skin cell layers together which encourages a releasing action of these layers.
- CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION is a process where AHA acids break down the dead skin cells. With a 10% concentration and higher PH, this process of the treatment is extremely gentle.
We recommend the ZO peel every 3 – 6 months to encourage proper cell turnover, which is required to maintain an efficient barrier function. With an efficient barrier function, the skin works in a healthy manner and rectifies conditions such as:
- Dry skin / dehydration
- Signs of aging skin
