Preparing for Medical-Grade Chemical Peels
Pre-treatment of the skin with prescription tretinoin (Retin-A, Refissa) may be recommended for best results of advanced medical-grade chemical peels. If tretinoin is a bit too harsh on your skin, a medical strength retinol cream such as ZO Medical Retamax or ZO Medical Brightenex can be used for pre-treatment instead. A bleaching agent called Hydroquinone may be recommended for pre-treatment on darker skin tones to help prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and optimize the improvement of blotchy skin. Our chemical peel specialists will recommend the best pre-treatment for you during your initial skin assessment and analysis.
After Your Treatment
Temporary redness, flaking, and dryness should not prevent you from working or engaging in your normal activities. A fresher and improved skin texture will result with continued treatments if required. Protecting your skin from the sun’s damaging rays with proper daily sun protection is extremely important following chemical peels.*
Your New Look
Depending on the strength of the peel, your initial improvements from chemical peels may be very subtle to remarkable! The results of a peel will provide noticeably improved skin tone, smooth texture, and fresher blemish-free skin.*

According to Common Beauty Lore, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Cleopatra all Shaved Their Faces.
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliating treatment for all skin types using a blade to “shave” away the outermost layers of the skin. It also removes peach fuzz for softer, smoother skin. Dermaplaning is painless, safe, and there is no downtime. Many of our patients like to have dermaplaning done right before a big event or as maintenance between medical-grade peels or laser procedures. As we age our skin doesn’t turn over as quickly. Dermaplaning promotes the turnover of the skin making it appear smoother and brighter.*
Dermaplaning helps the skin look and feel smoother and brighter. It is especially good for people who have a lot of red in their skin as it does not damage delicate capillaries like microdermabrasion can. Because no chemicals are used for exfoliation, Dermaplaning is also safe during pregnancy and nursing. Make-up artists encourage their clients to get dermaplaning a couple days prior to events because the skin is much smoother and make-up sets nicely because we remove the vellus hair from the face.*
Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.*

Treatment for Common Vascular Skin Conditions
Excel-V is helpful for many vascular skin conditions, including:
Rosacea is a common disorder that mainly affects the skin on the face. While it is typically characterized by harmless cosmetic symptoms, such as redness in the face, some patients also complain of heating or discomfort when they flush. Triggers of rosacea episodes can include strenuous exercise, temperature extremes, alcohol, and spicy foods.
Telangiectasias are tiny broken blood vessels that are permanently fixed in the dilated state. While they usually do not present a medical issue, they do create a cosmetic concern as they can take on the appearance of fine red lines coursing through the surface of the facial skin.
Leg veins are dilated vessels that range from large veins to small telangiectasias. Other non‐laser treatment of leg veins typically involves sclerotherapy, a procedure in which a liquid is injected into the damaged vessels to harden and destroy the vessel wall. Excel V can treat leg veins up to 4mm in diameter.
A port wine stain is a type of red or purple birthmark made of dilated blood capillaries. They often appear on the face and do not fade unless they are treated. Non‐laser treatment of port wine stains has included radiation, freezing, and surgery, often resulting in pain and scarring.
Cherry Angiomas are small red bumps that appear spontaneously on the skin. They typically appear in middle age and will proliferate. Non‐laser treatment of cherry angiomas includes cryosurgery and electrosurgery.
