Have you been wondering what it would be like to have beautiful, glowing skin? As we age, it’s hard not to ignore the signs of aging and sun damage we see in the mirror. Today, there are nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, including micropeels, which can result in smoother, softer skin, and a brighter complexion.

Micropeels come in a variety of formulations to address specific skin conditions: acne, aging, dry skin and sun damage. We begin with a consultation to determine your skin type and perform a VISIA® Complexion Analysis, so we see where your skin needs the most help.

How Do Micropeels Work?

The micropeel works by removing the outer layer of skin. During the peel, you will see a reduction in any superficial blemishes or fine lines within the top layer of skin. The result is smoother, younger and more even-looking skin.

Micropeels have many benefits, including:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing age spots, dark spots, and signs of sun damage
  • Unclogging pores and helping to clear acne
  • Improving poor skin tone caused by sun damage
  • Tightening, firming, and reducing skin laxity
  • Improving minor acne scars
  • Stimulating cellular turnover
  • Enjoying a glowing complexion

What Should I Expect?

The micropeel is a three-step process that removes a micro-thin layer of skin, ridding you of clogged pores and impurities. Just like chemical peels, micropeels involve the application of a chemical to exfoliate and cleanse your skin. Our highly trained and experienced staff at Santa Fe Vein & Med Spa will perform this safe and effective procedure.

After cleansing your skin and dermaplaning (a light scraping of the skin with an instrument to reduce dead skin and hair from the face), our Medical Aesthetician will apply the peel solution to your skin in a few layers, similar to a facial mask. The peel is left on for just a few minutes or more, depending on your skin’s needs. Most patients feel some warmth or a tingling sensation over the area—we provide a small fan to help cool your skin. There is minimal downtime associated with micropeels; in most cases, any residual redness will quickly fade. Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient.

Your skin's needs and your personal goals will determine how many peels you will need. Depending on your unique skin care regimen, we may recommend you get a peel every 4 to 6 weeks to achieve optimal results. Acne sufferers may need more frequent peels.

Our micropeels are customized to our clients' skin care needs and can include the following products:

  • SkinCeuticals Professional Grade Lactic Acid to deeply detox blocked pores and stimulate the rejuvenation of skin cells
  • SkinCeuticals Professional Grade Pigment Balancing Peel to suppress hyperpigmentation, brighten the skin, and stimulate cellular turnover
  • SkinCeuticals Professional Grade Glycolic Acid to suppress hyperpigmentation, penetrate with deep hydration, and trigger cellular turnover

Micropeel treatments also include:

  • a light extraction of congested pores with our ultrasonic extractor
  • cryotherapy treatment (which is applied to the skin to tighten and close pores)
  • antioxidant application
  • vitamin infusion
  • complimentary hand treatment with product and hydration

Premium Chemical Peel

Shedding of the skin is very beneficial and needs to occur on a regular basis if you have trouble with sunspots, enlarged pores, or dull skin. Our Premium Chemical Peel is a medium depth chemical peel that we apply in multiple layers. You will leave the office with the products still on your skin as they will continue to work for up to 4 hours and will self-neutralize. Over the next 3-4 days, you will peel as new healthy skin emerges.

Individual Timeframes and Results May Vary.

Why Get a Premium Chemical Peel?

Our Premium Chemical Peels rely on products and procedures tailored to your skin type and needs. Chemical peels can heal your damaged skin and can address acne issues, leaving your face feeling smooth and fresh. Our Premium Chemical Peels are designed to repair fine lines and wrinkles by boosting your skin’s suppleness and elasticity. They can also significantly reduce light discoloration from aging or excess exposure to the sun.

Our chemical peels are also beneficial in reducing mild scarring and rejuvenating your skin. Our goal is to offer you premium skin care and revitalize your beauty. These treatments will leave you with fresh, younger looking skin, without requiring any invasive procedures. 

Individual Timeframes and Results May Vary.

Results: 3-4 days of peeling, tighter and brighter skin, healthy glow!
