Exfoliate for a Skin Transformation in Westfield, NJ
As a first line of defense against environmental pollution, debris, and other harmful elements, skin can take significant damage. Years of ultraviolet radiation, toxins, acne flare-ups, and the natural loss of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin can leave the skin looking dull, worn, spotted, scarred, and crisscrossed with fine lines and wrinkles. All of these can be addressed with a chemical peel. NJ-based Burnett Plastic Surgery offers several distinct chemical peels, giving patients the option to create a customized plan to transform their skin.
A chemical peel is an nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that works by taking away dead skin cells and other problem elements that prevent a smooth, clear look, sometimes removing the outermost layers of skin. With the debris and worn-out layers gone, a younger, fresher layer is exposed. This layer will feature less of the hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and other cosmetic annoyances that make a person look aged and tired.
Burnett Plastic Surgery Chemical Peel Basics
A chemical peel is a strong topical solution applied directly to the skin for a set amount of time, then cleaned off. This is enough to start the transformation process, leading to exfoliation that happens over the course of the following days.
Our 90-Day Skin Transformation releases inner beauty through three unique chemical peels formulated to each patient's skin type and needs. SkinMedica peels have consistently resulted in fresh, healthy skin for our patients. With this form of customized skin care, provided at 30-day intervals throughout the process, patients see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. At the onset of the 90-Day Skin Transformation, Dr. Burnett and his team will carefully select the most appropriate peel based on an assessment of the patients' skin.
The Illuminize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize peels are each designed to address the needs of the skin through gentle, effective exfoliation:
This first peel by SkinMedica® is on the milder side and is perfect for those who want a jump-start in their anti-aging regimen.
This medium-strength peel, also by SkinMedica®, is a popular choice for individuals who have dark spots and photodamage they want to address.
Finally, this SkinMedica® peel, a deeper peel, will produce dramatic results by gently causing the skin to release dead, damaged cells on the surface.
Burnett Plastic Surgery also offers peels by PCA SKIN®, which come in a range of types designed to give skin a healthy glow and minimize signs of aging.
Despite being called a "chemical peel," this treatment dos not always cause the skin to peel away. Some patients do experience this effect, but others find that their skin actually flakes. Certain patients have no visible peeling or flaking, but enjoy the benefits of exfoliation on a cellular level.
