Procedure: Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, medical grade peel. It is very effective for treating a variety of facial skincare problems, such as acne scarring, sun-damaged skin, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Length: Usually about 20 minutes per treatment session
Anesthesia: No anesthesia
Possible Risks and Complications: Some patients may experience a dry feeling or temporary redness. There is typically only risk for hyper-pigmentation, bruising, bleeding, and infection if the medical grade machines are used at a high power.
Recovery: No downtime
Results: The result, which is healthier and softer skin, is noticeable after the first treatment; however, in order to maintain the outcome, you may need to visit Dr. Harlan for a series of treatment sessions. Depending on your condition, you may require six to 10 sessions, which can be spread out over a period of two weeks. Fine lines and wrinkles will become less defined after several treatments.
Procedure: The Obagi Blue Peel is an effective, non-surgical solution for rejuvenating skin. It is a sequential skin care program designed to help reduce age spots, hyper-pigmentation, diminish fine lines and wrinkles (improving elasticity in the process), increase the skin’s natural moisture, stimulate the production of new collagen, reduce pore size, and create a smoother, more even tone of your skin. The Obagi Blue Peel treatment can also be performed on non-facial areas that have noticeably marked or damaged skin, such as the neck, chest, hands, back, arms, and legs.
Length: Usually about 30 minutes per treatment session
Anesthesia: No anesthesia is typically needed; however, some patients request an oral sedative or pain medication.
Possible Risks and Complications: There are very little risks and complications associated with the Obagi Blue Peel treatment; rather, there are typical side effects that may develop. During the skin preparation process, which involves the use of Nu-derm products about six weeks prior to your session, it is common to experience redness, burning, and/or peeling. During the actual peel procedure, it is likely that you will experience severe pain for approximately five minutes. Upon completion of the peel, expect a blue tint. This will fade within two to three days.
Recovery: Following this treatment, you will be placed on a comfort kit skin care line to ensure proper healing and results of your peel. Dr. Harlan can prescribe certain pain medications if necessary. Transportation should be arranged for you after the peel. Patients are typically able to resume normal activity within three to five days.
Results: The result is tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin, which will be apparent after just one session. In order to maintain overall results, a series of four to six peels may be necessary.
