Micropeels are a combination of two popular skin care treatments, providing added benefits in just one treatment. Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England offers this treatment to the men and women living in and around Portland, Maine.
What Are Micropeels?
Micropeels are a chemical peel treatment that is combined with microdermabrasion. The microdermabrasion treatment is initially performed, eliminating dead skin cells and other debris on the skin’s surface. This allows the chemical peel treatment to penetrate deeper into the skin, producing more dramatic rejuvenation benefits. Micropeels are highly effective for the treatment of the following concerns:
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Wrinkles and lines
- Enlarged pores
- And more
How Much Do Micropeel Treatments Cost?
The cost of your micropeel treatments at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will assess your skin type and discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to the micropeel treatment that will work best for you.
We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect from the Micropeel Treatment?
The micropeel treatment begins with a microdermabrasion treatment. During this process, small abrasive crystals are blasted onto the skin to exfoliate the outermost layer and remove dead skin cells. This process is generally comfortable and requires no anesthetic.
Then, the skin will be cleansed in preparation for the chemical peel. The chemical peel solution will be customized based on your treatment goals. After it is applied to the skin, it will rest on the skin for a set amount of time. You may experience a warm or tingling sensation during this process. After the appropriate amount of time has passed, the chemical peel solution will be removed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Micropeel Recovery Like?
After your micropeel, you may experience redness or sensitivity in the skin. The extent of these side effects will vary depending on the intensity of your treatment. After a few days, the skin will begin to peel. This is a natural part of the healing process. The skin may peel for a week or two after treatment, after which time all side effects should begin to fade. You will need to take special care to protect the skin from sun damage during the healing process, but you should be able to resume most normal activities immediately after your appointment.
What Micropeel Results Can I Expect?
The results from your micropeel will develop gradually in the weeks following your treatment, becoming increasingly visible once any side effects resolve. For best results, we may recommend multiple treatment sessions. During your consultation, we will assess your skin type and consider your treatment goals in order to determine the number of treatments that are necessary.
