What is a Micropeel?

The SkinCeuticals Micropeel is a three-step clinical procedure combining dermaplaning (physical exfoliation), chemical exfoliation, and cryogenic therapy to reduce signs of photo-aging including fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and visible skin imperfections in a series of 4-6 procedures.

Formulated with niacin, lactic acid, and usnic acid, this mild clinical-grade peel gently exfoliates and decongests pores while hydrating skin. Micropeel Sensitive Skin Solution, an optimal starter peel, is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive.


What can I expect as a result?

The Micropeel Plus procedure is a unique one-step treatment of chemical exfoliation designed to reduce acne, keep problematic skin clear of breakouts, and help correct enviormental skin damage. Micropeel Plus 30 Solution is formulated with a combination of salicylic acid to refine pores and help reduce the apperance of acne and glycolic acid to aid in the improvement of rough texture, blotchiness, and uneven skin tone.

The Micropeel Plus 30 Solution, formulated with 30% salicylic acid, is applied in one easy step and self-neutralizes once the optimal level of salicylic acid had been deposited. One week following a Micropeel Plus procedure, skin will undergo its renewal process and light to moderate peeling may occur. For optimal results, two series of 4-6 procedures per year are recommended.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation procedure which smoothes wrinkles and fine lines, improves the appearance of scars, reduces the size of pore, and helps improve age and sun spots. It can be described as an intense mechanical exfoliation treatment which removes the top layer of the skin.


How does it Work?

A controlled spray of very fine aluminum oxide is applied to the surface of the skin, removing the upper layer of the epidermis. While emitting the spray, the device simultaneously works to clear excess oxide crystals and the skinís cellular debris. This process helps the skin cells to stimulate new collagen, resulting in increased skin firmness and tone, revealing a fresh youthful looking face.

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Scars That Have Resulted From Acne, Surgery or Even Chicken Pox
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Age Spots


What can I expect Post Treatment?

There is no downtime involved with this procedure, though microdermabrasion patients are asked to wear sunscreen after treatment, as skin will be extra sensitive to light. Immediately following treatment, the skin will have a slightly pink hue, creating a fresh look. Self-conscious patients can easily camouflage the redness with makeup. Skin imperfections are diminished and the skin seems softer and rejuvenated. The best results come to patients who continue a series of microdermabrasion treatments over time.

Yes, both treatments rid the skin of the top layer of cells. MicroDermabrasion is done by physical means while a peel uses chemicals to remove surface cells.

Yes, a series of treatments will make the skin smoother, softer, and with less fine wrinkles.

To obtain optimal results, a series of 6 rejuvenating treatments spaced 1 week apart is recommended. Continued improvement is best achieved with maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are used to improve the skin’s appearance by applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing the top layers of the skin to separate and peel off and new layers to be exposed. The new skin is smoother; less wrinkled and may be more even in color.
