Skin Care Southlake TX
Fotofacial™ Southlake TX
This procedure is designed to produce younger, healthier looking skin by using a broad spectrum light to penetrate into the dermal layer. This improves sun damage, wrinkles, broken capillaries, age spots, freckles, Rosacea, blotchy skin tone, and enlarged pores. The face, neck, chest, and hands are the most popular areas that are treated. Microdermabrasion® is included when needed to prepare the surface of the skin since this treatment works from the dermal to the epidermal layers of skin.
FotoFacial™ treatments are usually recommended in a package of 5 to prevent downtime, keeping them approximately three weeks apart for best results.
Microdermabrasion® Southlake TX
This package treatment removes dead skin cells by creating a mild abrasion to the skin using sodium crystals. It can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, enlarged, clogged or oily pores, acne scars, and stretch marks.
A chemical exfoliation can sometimes be combined with this treatment for maximum results when treating certain conditions. This process involves little or no discomfort allowing you to return to work immediately. A series of 6 treatments is recommended in order to achieve correctional results.
Fraxel Laser™ Southlake TX
Fraxel™ is an FDA approved laser that treats wrinkles around the eyes, age spots, sun spots, brown spots / pregnancy mask (melasma), acne scars, surgical scars and skin resurfacing. As seen on the Today Show and The View you can also notice skin tightening due to the collagen remodeling. The technology behind Fraxel™ allows the laser to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin by using pinpoint laser beams that are smaller than a single strand of hair to penetrate beneath the skin’s surface. This eliminates old, damaged skin cells and replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. Your treatments are tailored to your skin’s individual needs which will determine the amount of downtime you may experience. Since Fraxel™ is so precise; it is proven to be safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands as well as the face. You can expect two levels of results. Immediately following the initial healing aspect of the treatment, the surface of the skin will feel softer, appear brighter, and skin tone will start to become even. The progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal and the collagen remodeling develops.
BioMedic® MicroPeel Southlake TX
This is a three-step process that removes a micro-thin layer of skin. Having this layer removed allows the skin to breathe easier unclogging pores and looking more youthful. Micro-peels are great for sensitive skin.
MicroPeel Plus Peel Southlake TX
This procedure contains salicylic acid and eliminates blemishes. This procedure rids the skin of all dead cells and stimulates the skin renewal process. There is no downtime and can be performed in 30 minutes.
TCA Peels Southlake TX
Trichoroacetic acid is used in different strengths depending on the individual’s skin and desired results. This helps to correct photodamaged skin and hyperpigmentation. The TCA peel also improves fine lines, texture, and acne scars. Prepping the skin for this particular chemical peel is recommended. Patients report that it feels like a sunburn immediately after the procedure and usually the peeling begins by the 2nd-3rd day and then continues for 7-10 days.
Glycolic Peels Southlake TX
This is a combination of lactic, maltic, taltaric, and citric acid that is applied in different strengths depending on the individual’s skin. It causes a light exfoliation of dead surface cells which helps to improve texture, enlarged pores, acne breakouts, fine lines, and superficial discoloration. When a series of glycolic peels are done two weeks apart, better results are accomplished. There are 3-5 days of light exfoliation or sloughing of the skin.
Laser Hair Removal Southlake TX
Laser hair removal is done with a diode laser which penetrates the skin. The light is absorbed by the darker hair which then heats up the hair shaft thus destroying the hair. The hair grows in cycles, therefore, multiple treatments are needed to accomplish permanent hair reduction. It is recommended to have four treatments several weeks apart depending on the area being treated. The most popular areas of treatment are facial areas, underarms, bikini areas, and legs and arms. Men benefit most from the lower neck since it eliminates shaving this sensitive skin every time they shave their beard. Many men also enjoy the benefits from laser hair removal on their backs, shoulders, and chest, or anywhere there is unwanted hair.
Dermaplaning Southlake TX
Dermaplaning is a wonderful way to physically exfoliate the skin on any skin type. Even the most sensitive and reactive skin can be treated this way. A scalpel is used by a trained aesthetician to gently remove the dead surface cells from the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis). Facial hair is also removed by this process leaving the skin surface soft and smooth. Dermaplaning also improves skin texture and stimulates new healthy cell growth at the surface. This procedure is recommended monthly.
