Your skin naturally shows signs of aging as you get older. You may notice increased laxity, wrinkles, sun damage, and volume loss. If you want to achieve a smoother, brighter, more youthful complexion, we offer a variety of skin rejuvenation treatments at Epiphany Dermatology.

Some of our most popular skin-rejuvenation treatments include chemical peels, Fraxel® laser, Clear + Brilliant®, and IPL treatments. These approaches are non-invasive, meaning you’ll be able to achieve natural, younger-looking skin with minimal downtime.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels mimic your body’s natural regeneration process by using high-strength exfoliants to penetrate your skin and remove dead and damaged cells. They are often categorized into three different depths: light, medium, and deep. These categories refer to the intensity of the face peel and the layers of skin affected during the treatment.

We offer a variety of peels that target specific skin conditions, including the following:

  • Glycolic
  • Lactic
  • Beta
  • Vitalize
  • Pigment balancing
  • TCA

During your consultation, we will evaluate your desired treatment area and your cosmetic goals. Then, we’ll recommend a face peel that is best suited to you and your skin type.

What Does a Chemical Peel Treat?

Chemical peels are used to address the following concerns:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Sunspots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark patches

Anyone looking to smooth away uneven tone or texture and see brighter, more radiant skin can benefit from one of our chemical peels.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

Typically, a treatment plan will consist of three to six peels over several weeks. During each session, we will cleanse your skin before applying the peel. You may experience some heat or a mild tingling sensation on your skin.

In the days following the procedure, you may notice some flaking and peeling begin, particularly around your mouth and forehead. You must avoid direct sunlight and keep yourself and your skin well-hydrated to support the peeling process.

What Is a Fraxel® Laser Treatment?

A Fraxel® laser delivers a non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatment. It uses microscopic laser columns to penetrate your skin and stimulate collagen production. This treatment works to restore a younger-looking appearance by encouraging healthy skin from the inside out.

What Does a Fraxel® Laser Treatment Address?

This laser treatment can address a multitude of skin conditions. It is particularly effective at treating the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Actinic keratosis

This treatment can be used across multiple areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and shoulders.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

Before the procedure, we will cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic to maximize your comfort. The procedure takes approximately 20 to 25 minutes, during which you may feel a hot sensation on your skin. After the procedure, your skin may feel sensitive, almost like a sunburn, but this should fade in the hours after.

You may see some immediate results after your first treatment, but they will increase over the course of multiple sessions. Typically, you will need three to five sessions spaced several weeks apart to give your skin time to heal and replace damaged tissue. It will be two to three months before your optimal results become visible.

What Is a Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatment?

Our Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatment is another type of laser resurfacing treatment. It creates hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones to boost collagen and elastin production and replace damaged skin cells with healthy ones.

What Does a Clear + Brilliant®  Laser Treatment Address?

This laser resurfacing treatment will help your skin feel softer and more radiant. Clear + Brilliant® is effective at reversing the signs of aging and sun damage. Some of its benefits to your skin may include:

  • Improving tone and texture
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles
  • Minimizing pore size
  • Improving elasticity
  • Correcting hyperpigmentation

Clear + Brilliant® is safe for most skin types so that anyone can enjoy younger-looking skin.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

Procedures are comfortable, gentle, and typically last about 30 minutes. We will guide a handpiece over the desired treatment areas and use its tracking technology to ensure a uniform application during the treatment.

Your skin will become noticeably softer and brighter one to two weeks after your treatment. We typically recommend four to six sessions, and many patients will continue booking treatments to maintain their results.

What Can I Expect from an IPL Treatment?

An IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment, also known as a photofacial, penetrates down to the second layer of skin and heats it, causing your body to get rid of unwanted cells. Unlike a laser, which releases one wavelength, an IPL treatment delivers many different wavelengths of pulsating light.

What Does an IPL Treatment Address?

IPL treatments are good for improving skin texture and color concerns, such as :

  • Age and sunspots
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Scars
  • Wrinkles

Additionally, the treatment can also be used for partial hair removal.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

An IPL treatment will last 20 to 30 minutes but could take longer depending on the size of the target area. Your eyes will be protected with dark glasses while we move the handheld device over your skin. As the light hits your skin, you may feel a sensation similar to being snapped by an elastic band.

It may take several weeks to see results. We’ll recommend two to six follow-up sessions, depending on your skin condition.

Many of our treatments can be performed as stand-alone procedures or as complements to one of our many other skin rejuvenation services. During your consultation, we will discuss all of our treatment options and design a plan to have you feeling confident and comfortable in your skin in no time.
