WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Fine lines under the eyes, Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles – these are all the dreaded tell-tale signs of aging. However now, thanks to anti-wrinkle injections, you can achieve a well-rested, youthful, and fresh look which is subtle, yet incredibly effective. We can’t stop nor reverse the clock on aging, but we do have the power to slow it down. When injected in small doses into targeted areas, anti-wrinkle injections block the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. They reduce the appearance of lines to produce a look that is fresh, more youthful and, most importantly, natural.
When administered by a medical expert, anti-wrinkle injections can be used safely to treat wrinkles by relaxing muscles that cause the unwanted creases. Our expert medical team strives to enhance your features with the latest techniques and technology. At Dermace Laser Clinic, there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" approach, instead, we tailor each service to our patients, making it also more cost-effective. After all, we want to enhance your unique, beautiful look.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
All our treatments begin with a consultation that includes a full facial assessment by our medical director, and Nurse Practioner, Injector Maggie. After consultation, the treatment itself takes only about 15-20 minutes depending on how many treatment areas are involved. Before leaving the clinic, we provide all our clients with detailed post-treatment care instructions along with complimentary (optional) follow up appointment for assessment two weeks after treatment.
How does a chemical peel work?Chemical peels work by using specific acid solutions to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. The acids penetrate the skin and dissolve the bonds between old skin cells, allowing them to be sloughed off. This process encourages the growth of new skin cells, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath.
What skin concerns can chemical peels address?Chemical peels can effectively address various skin concerns, including acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and texture irregularities. The type and strength of the peel will depend on the specific concerns being targeted.
Are chemical peels painful?During the chemical peel, you may experience a tingling or mild burning sensation, which is generally well-tolerated.
How long is the recovery period after a chemical peel?The recovery time can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel. Superficial peels typically have minimal downtime, with some redness and peeling that lasts for a few days. Our medium to deep peels may require a longer recovery period, ranging from several days to a few weeks, during which the skin may appear red, swollen, and have more noticeable peeling.
How many sessions are needed to see results?The number of sessions required depends on the specific skin concerns and the type of peel used. Some people may see noticeable improvements after just one session, while others may require a series of treatments for optimal results. Your skincare professional will assess your skin and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?Following a chemical peel, it's crucial to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by your skincare professional. This may include using gentle cleansers and moisturizers, avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding harsh skincare products or treatments that can irritate the skin.
