MicroPeel® in Reno
Sometimes at-home skincare products are not enough to provide you the rejuvenated, fresh appearance you desire. Our MicroPeel® treatment, also known as a “lunchtime peel,” is a light, three-step acid peel that removes a micro-thin top layer of the skin, leaving you with a glowing and renewed complexion.
If you are looking to successfully improve the appearance of your skin without surgery or harsh treatments, a MicroPeel® may be right for you.Schedule a Consultation
What Does a MicroPeel® Involve?
Step 1: Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique that uses a surgical scalpel to gently remove the top layers of the skin. This treatment is beneficial because it removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells to create a smooth, clear surface before your peel. Because you will be free of any cells/debris clogging your pores, your MicroPeel® products and techniques will be able to penetrate your skin’s protective barrier better.
Step 2: Chemical Peel
After dermaplaning, our skincare professional will apply a chemical solution to your skin using SkinCeuticals products. These products are designed to brighten your skin, creating a more youthful appearance. The peel works to exfoliate and refine pores to improve the skin’s texture and tone.
Step 3: Cryogenic Therapy
After the peel is complete, you will undergo cryogenic therapy. Cryogenic therapy uses extremely cold temperatures to tighten and brighten facial skin.
