Crystal Peel (Microdermabrasion)
Chemical peeling and manual dermabrasion are the traditional techniques for the treatments of a wide range of skin abnormalities. There are restrictions and difficulties associated with these common procedures since they can be painful and rapid retreatment is not always possible.
A new procedure called crystal peel offers an effective, economical, alternative method for skin resurfacing that is effective on all skin types and skin colors. This unique approach removes dead skin cells and stimulates the production of fresh young skin cells and collagen. Crystal Peel is not painful and does not require pre-treatment or topical anesthesia.
Crystal peel (microdermabrasion) system is used by dermatologists to restore the beauty of aging or sun-damaged skin.
A gentle, non-invasive alternative to surgery or chemicals, crystal peel process has been used successfully to treat fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, acne scars and other superficial skin blemishes. This system is widely used in Europe and has recently received FDA clearance in the United States.
A precision handpiece is used to apply a stream of tiny crystals and mild suction just where needed on your skin. The gentle abrasive action of the crystals combines with the suction to remove the dead outer layer of your skin while bringing newer, fresher skin to the surface.
Conditions treated successfully include fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, superficial pigmentation, acne scars, oily pores, blackheads and whitehead, adjunctive to cosmetic surgery and blending post-lasered skin.
Dr. Lee, directer of Dream Dermatology & Skin Care said "fine wrinkles, acne scar, enlarged pore are improved by crystal peel. At first I didn't believe the effects but it was real. The real benefit is that after treatment, you are able to leave the clinic with a clean and fresh sparkling tone."
