To keep your skin healthy, it is best to get periodic deep cleanings using Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peels. At The Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center, we offer many methods of exfoliation, including microdermabrasion and a wide variety of Chemical Peels.
Chemical peels have long been used as skin rejuvenation procedures. In the right hands, chemical peels can safely address many common facial concerns, including wrinkles, Acne, uneven skin coloration, and a dull complexion. Depending on the severity of the problem, you can often see results immediately with little or no recovery necessary. Chemical peels have been found to be a powerful complement to other skin treatments, leading to numerous innovations in what is known as combination therapy.
What Is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel involves the application of medical acids to remove the damaged skin layers in order to produce more youthful appearance. A healing response to the peel can also trigger new collagen formation so the skin appears tighter and more elastic.
What Areas Can Be Treated with a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are most commonly used on the face, but can be used on other body areas such as the chest, shoulders and arms, and legs to reduce wrinkles, freckles, or age spots.

What Is Combination Therapy?
The youth-prolonging results of chemical peels can be significantly enhanced by combining chemical peels with other skin treatments such as Fraxel™ Skin resurfacing, Photodynamic Therapy, Laser Skin Treatments, IPL or Photorejuvenation. Combining chemical peels with laser treatments can increase the level of results beyond what either treatment can do alone.
What Types of Combination Therapy Are Available?
Chemical peels can be combined with any light, laser, or skin therapy. The most popular combinations include:
- Laser and light-based techniques like CO2 laser skin resurfacing and Fraxel ™ laser treatment that stimulate collagen remodeling and remove pigmented lesions
- Thermage non-surgical radiofrequency treatment to tighten and lift sagging skin
- Topical prescriptions fight against wrinkles like Retin A™ and Tazorac™
- Dermal fillers like collagen, Juvederm and Restylane to fill in the volume lost with time
- BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport to relax wrinkles
Chemical Peel Procedure
Chemical peels are performed as an outpatient procedure in an office setting. The type and concentration of the peeling agent control the depth of the peel. During your consultation with Dr. Moskowitz and her medical Aesthetician, you will discuss your cosmetic goals and customize your treatment according to your skin type, skin damage and desired results. As a rule, the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery time. In all cases, avoid sun exposure immediately after a chemical peel and use sun block during the healing process since the new skin is fragile and more susceptible to injury.
Microdermabrasion – PANAMA CITY BEACH FLORIDA
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatments exfoliate the outer dead skin cell layers to expose the fresher living skin below. Microdermabrasion removes the dead outer layers of skin by gently buffing it with a stream of fine crystals. This removes the very thin outer layer of skin that consists of dead cells that have lost the luster of living tissue and have suffered damage from the sun and other exposure. It also contains contaminants, pollutants, and dirt that clog pores and damage skin.
Microdermabrasion Procedure and Results
Microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels are known as a “lunchtime peel” because It takes less than an hour, so it can usually be performed during your lunch hour. Because they are minimally invasive, you can go back to work right away with your skin looking healthy and glowing, The visible benefit of microdermabrasion is immediate.
Acne and skin dullness can be reduced with microdermabrasion. Some people see a reduction in skin discoloration, fine wrinkling, and scaly skin after a regular treatment program.
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels prepare your skin to receive topical nutrients, so combining them with a recommended skin care regimen can deepen and lengthen the results you see.
