Here at Kitto Plastic Surgery we are getting ready for the winter and the Holiday season.
Winter is a good time to give your skin a boost towards a healthy radiant glow and reverse some of the skin damage from the sun exposure during the summer.
With that in mind we are offering two skin care specials for the winter months.
Jessner Peel: a series of 3 medical grade peels done 4 weeks apart.
- Anti-aging peel which treats superficial discoloration, eliminates fine lines, and provides an overall youthful appearance and texture to skin.
- Each peeling starts with a cleanser and a toner to prepare the skin, followed by dermaplaning, peeling and a clay mask. Each treatment is finished with the application of a moisturizer and sunscreen SPF25.
Benefits: Stimulates collagen production, provides a healthy rosy glow to facial skin.
Downtime: Ideally done on a Thursday so shedding of dull and damaged skin can occur over the weekend.
Best candidate: This is an introductory level peel, done for women who have not received peels in the near past. Tends to be gentler and more superficial.
TCA Peel: a series of 3 medical grade peels done 4 weeks apart.
- A more aggressive peel, ideal for aging and more mature skin with imperfections such as discoloration and deep wrinkles.
- Each peeling starts with a cleanser and a toner to prepare the skin, followed by dermaplaning and peeling. Each treatment is finished with the application of a moisturizer and sunscreen SPF25.
Benefits: Jump starts the collagen production, restores skin vitality, softens deep wrinkles, treats areas of hyperpigmentation.
Downtime: 4-6 days of fading redness and skin flaking. Ideally done on a Wednesday or Thursday.
Best candidate: This is a more aggressive peel with a deeper penetration. It is ideal for women who have extensive sun damage, some skin sagging and many areas of discoloration. It can also be used as a stepup procedure after Jessner peels. **This peel requires 4-6 weeks of pretreatment**
Each peel will start with individualized consultation with Dr. Kitto. All peels are done by Dr. Kitto and skin care regimen is supervised by Dr. Kitto.
