Dermaplaning is typically used as the first step of the SkinCeuticals MicroPeel in Austin, the removal of the dead skin cells not only allows for cell renewal, but also allows for better penetration of the chemical peel which is step 2. Dermaplaning is a gentle skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical blade to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. As an added bonus, it also removes facial hair—a great procedure for people wanting to remove lighter-colored facial hair or “peach fuzz.” You end up with very smooth-looking, glowing skin.
Several options are available for the chemical peel portion of the MicroPeel. The micropeel is customized for your skin type and skincare needs. Options include but are not limited to: sensitive skin solution, pigment balancing peel, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicyclic acid, or the micropeel plus. The specific peel used during your facial and microneedling treatment will be based on your skin type and personal needs.
Types of MicroPeels
Sensitive Skin Solution
This peel is for the person who has sensitive skin and can’t tolerate a strong acid. It contains Niacin, lactic acid and usnic acid. It exfoliates and decongests pores while hydrating the skin.
Pigment Balancing Peel
This treatment is a unique, customizable chemical peel targeting hyperpigmentation to dramatically improve the uneven appearance of photo-damaged, mottled skin (most efffective after a series of 4-6 treatments). This peel combines brightening and anti-inflammatory agents with a powerful exfoliating acid solution to accelerate cell renewal and diminish, diffuse and localize hyperpigmentation.
The Micropeel 20 Solution (or 30% for a step higher)
This is formulated with 20% unbuffered and unneutralized glycolic acid at a low pH, which accelerates cell renewal to reduce signs of photo damage and environmental stressors.
