All of us notice every so often when we look in the mirror that our skin looks a little off.  It’s not quite a severe case of aging, nor is it horrible sunburn or a bad skin condition.  Then we realize!  Your skin needs freshening up and microdermabrasion may be the answer. Something about it looks old, and not in the sense of wrinkles and lines, but you can’t really explain it.  Fortunately, there are solutions to this odd situation that people of all ages find themselves in.

For one, there is a simple and well-known procedure called microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that freshens up your skin instantly.  Skin cells die, and every so often, the top layer of our skin is a reflection of dead skin cells.  The dead cells accumulate and cause that odd appearance in our face.  Microdermabrasion, which targets the top layer of the skin, removes the layer of dead skin cells in a gentle manner within a short treatment time.  It essentially rejuvenates the skin without any side effects or downtime.  Microdermabrasion is also effective in treating light scarring, discoloration, and slight sun damage.

Another treatment that is used for skin concerns is a chemical peel.  At Florida Aesthetics, a variety of peels are used to treat various skin conditions. Chemical peels are, as the name suggests, gentle chemicals that remove the top layer of your skin, which consists of dead skin cells.  They also treat certain skin conditions, such as acne and sun damage.  At Florida Aesthetics patients can schedule a free consultation where their skin concern is evaluated, and the appropriate skin peel is selected and applied. Obagi Blue Radiance Peel has been a very popular peel amongst our patients. It is used to exfoliate your skin, leaving you with a sense of refreshment and a visible natural glow. In addition to Obagi Blue Radiance Peel, Florida Aesthetics is now offering other chemical peels to ensure the right peel is chosen for your skin condition and concern.
