Peels and Skin Treatments Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel improves the look of your skin by sloughing off old and dead cells to reveal fresh, radiant skin. Your aesthetician at The Beauty Medics applies an exfoliating solution to your skin to reveal a less wrinkled, smoother appearance.

Chemical peels vary in intensity from superficial peels, which address mild skin discoloration and rough patches, to deep peels, which treat moderate lines, freckles, and shallow scars. Dr. Bokhari helps determine the best type for you depending on your aesthetic goals and skin care needs.

Be sure to apply sunscreen after a chemical peel as your skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun. It may take just one to seven days to heal from a superficial peel, but almost three weeks to heal from a deep peel treatment.

Dr. Bokhari and the staff at The Beauty Medics let you know exactly what to expect with your peel, which products to apply after treatment, and any special precautions you should take.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin using a wand with a diamond tip. It’s minimally abrasive but offers enough to exfoliate skin cells and reveal soft, radiant skin underneath. Microdermabrasion can be effective on skin issues, such as:

  • Age spots
  • Blackheads
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Large pores

The treatment lasts about 45 minutes and has no downtime. Microdermabrasion also stimulates your body’s ability to produce collagen, a skin-strengthening compound that can improve your skin’s texture, tone, and firmness.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, uses super fine needles to create tiny wounds that trigger your body’s healing mechanisms, which reveal brighter, rejuvenated skin.

Microneedling is effective on skin concerns such as:

  • Poor skin texture
  • Sagging skin
  • Scars
  • Large pores

As a result of the procedure, your body produces more collagen and elastin natural factors that tighten and enhance your skin’s appearance. The tiny channels created with the needles also allow for better absorption of skin-boosting serums and creams.
