When One Treatment Isn’t Enough

  • May 23, 2016

There are certain times when one type of treatment won’t help achieve the results that are wanted by our patients. When this happens, we can combine treatments to repair and correct certain issues and give our clients the results they are looking for.

For instance, if you’re looking to repair sun-damaged skin or skin that is unevenly pigmented then a Chemical Peel might be the correct course of treatment for you. If you also want to safely reduce wrinkles and the appearance of scars, then a combination of Chemical Peel/Micro Needling treatments might work well.

Chemical Peels, aka Skin Peels, involve applying a chemical solution to sun-damaged or unevenly pigmented facial areas. These treatments are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that patients take advantage of. The treatment is meant to reduce skin imperfections by peeling the top layers of the skin. The depth of the peeling is controlled by the strength of the chemical peel, the ingredients in the chemical peel and the length of time the chemical peel is left on the face. These peels help improve the texture of the skin and to smooth the skin. Damaged outer layers of skin are peeled off, revealing fresh skin underneath along with a dynamic glow to your face.

Your Caddell’s esthetician will discuss the results you’re looking for in a Chemical Peel to determine which type of Peel to use.

What Chemical Peels Can Do:

  • Chemical Peels can reduce sun damage.
  • They can reduce mild scarring.
  • There can be a reduction of wrinkles with a Chemical Peel.
  • Stubborn/excessive blackheads can be removed.
  • Temporarily reduce excessive oil.

What Chemical Peels Can’t Do:

  • It can’t remove broken blood vessels.
  •  They won’t remove keloidal scarring.
  • Chemical Peels can’t change your pore size, although pores can look smaller when blackheads are removed.

An important thing to remember after a chemical peel is to wear sun block to protect new, sensitive skin.

Safely Reduce Wrinkles and Scars with Micro Needling 

When done in combination with a Chemical Peel, Micro Needling can reduce the visibility of wrinkles and scars giving you a more youthful appearance. With Micro Needling tiny, sterile needles are rolled over the skin multiple times – these needles are designed to penetrate the outer surface of the skin,  stimulating blood to the treated area while gently exfoliating excess skin cells. While giving the skin a massage, it cleans out pores and stimulates collagen re-growth.

The best Micro Needling treatments are those at a clinic and at home. Micro Needling works best when done weekly and an at home device does just the trick. The home Micro Needling treatments should be done in combination with monthly Micro Needling treatments at a clinic. The clinic treatments penetrate the skin a bit deeper – delivering more benefits. Before the clinic treatment Hyaluronic Acid Gel is applied to the skin for deep absorption and hydration of the area to be treated.
