Facial Chemical Peel and Skin Care

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.

We offer light- to medium-depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.

Here at Maria White Dental Practice our skin care specialist will complete a thorough skin analysis and recommend an individualized treatment program to address your skin concerns. She will create a personalized program that combines professional treatments with home care products since they work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of skin. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.

Like all medicines Botulinum toxin can cause side effects, although any reactions are generally minimal and temporary. You may find that there can be some slight discomfort as the needle enters the skin and you may have some bruising or bleeding where the needle has been placed.

Skin Rejuvenation

WHAT IS MESOTHERAPY?

Well-known for its outstanding results on the body, mesotherapy can also be applied on the face to prevent and treat signs of aging and rejuvenate the entire area, bringing out a natural glow that will catch everyone’s eye.

Mesotherapy provides the skin with a special cocktail of nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals and amino-acids to boost its appearance significantly.

As a result, your face regains its natural elasticity, shape and glow. Since this non-invasive treatment replenishes naturally-occurring substances required by the skin to rehydrate and repair imperfections, the results are quick and long-lasting.

WHAT CAN IT DO FOR ME?

Using a series of micro injections, our doctors apply a series of ingredients found naturally in the skin such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins (A, B, C, E, K), minerals, coenzymes and nucleic acids. Mesotherapy improves the appearance of the skin, reduces sagging and restores hydration.

WHAT IS INVOLVED?

A series of micro injections are applied at the epidermal layer of the skin. These ingredients contain naturally occurring micro nutrients beneficial to the skin. The patient feels a mild pricking sensation, which is usually easily tolerated.

RECOMMENDATIONS

During treatment it is advisable to follow a low fat diet, avoid alcohol and other stimulants and drink a lot of water to help eliminate toxins.

RESULTS

Facial mesotherapy combats sagging and ageing of the skin, improves wrinkles, and also gives luminosity to the face. It does this by stimulating the skin tissue, firming and toning. It restructures mature skin, repairs post-traumatic skin imperfections and increases the elasticity and hydration of the skin.

POST TREATMENT

Some bruising may occur after the session which disappears soon afterwards. Mild redness may also appear which goes away after a few hours.
Do not expose the skin to the sun and use a good sunscreen.

PDO Thread Lift

WHAT ARE PDO THREADS?
PDO stands for polydioxanone and is a material that has been used in the medical world for decades. PDO Threads are a suture like material that is used to sagging skin around the face and neck area. PDO threads are an absorbable suture which can stay in the skin for up to 6 months, however the lifting effect is long lasting as they encourage the body to produce new collagen which may last for up to 2 years.

IS THIS TREATMENT FOR ME?
Thread lifting is becoming more and more popular.  If you have a slight sagging of the skin for example around the jowl area and would like a more lifted appearance then this treatment gives you all the benefits of a facelift without the risk of surgery.

HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN SEE THE BENEFITS?
The beauty of this product is that the effects are noticeable immediately after the procedure. The treatment itself is long lasting and non-permanent with very little downtime.
