Types of medical peels offered:

We offer a number of medical peels suited to your specific skin condition:

Jessner Peel

The Jessner Peel is designed to remove superficial layers of skin, dry out active acne, dislodge blackheads, reduce shallow wrinkling and scarring, help lighten hyper pigmentation and improve the overall appearance and health of sun-damaged, acne prone, aging skin. One of the main ingredients of Jessner Peel is salicylic acid that deeply penetrates the pores and removes congested sebum and dead skin cells. This solution may be applied in layers to provide a variety of results. It can also be used in conjunction with microdermabrasion for a deeper penetration.

Salicylic Acid Peel

Salicylic Acid is a great keratolytic which means it helps loosen the bonds between skin cells to promote exfoliation. Salicylic Acid is oil soluble and lipophilic so it penetrates sebum filled follicles & cleans out clogged pores, it is also good for exfoliating congested follicles and very is effective in the management of problematic skin concerns.

Photodynamic therapy

Photodynamic therapy is prescribed for the treatment of superficial basal cell carcinoma, nodular basal cell carcinoma and Bowen’s disease, but can also be beneficial for the treatment of acne, pigmented lesions and skin rejuvenation. Photodynamic therapy may also be prescribed for treatment of thin or non-pigmented actinic keratoses.

The treatment occurs in two stages;

  • the preparation of the area to be treated and the initial application of solution,
  • followed by led light therapy.

Over a few hours the drug is absorbed by the cancer cells, then light is applied to the area treated. The led light causes the drug to react with oxygen, which forms a chemical that kills the cells. Photo Dynamic Therapy may also help by destroying the blood vessels that feed the cancer cells and by alerting the immune system to attack the cancer.

Photo Dynamic Therapy usually requires two treatments, two weeks apart but no longer than 7 weeks, and patients are reviewed by the prescribing doctor 2-3 months after treatment for a follow up. Studies have shown that PDT be just as effective as surgery or radiation therapy in treating certain kinds of cancers and pre-cancers. PDT has no long-term side effects and is less invasive than surgery. PDT can be targeted precisely to concerned areas and can have further treatments in the same area multiple times and there is generally minimal to no scarring after the site heals.
