Chemical Peels

Skin peels can greatly enhance the appearance of the skin. During a skin peel procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the face. Chemical peels come in three strengths: superficial, medium, and deep. The solution causes the top layer of the skin to shed, sloughing off impurities and dead skin cells. As the skin peels, healthier, tighter skin surfaces. The effect is a tighter, even skin. Chemical peels not only tighten the skin, they can lighten discolorations and help improve skin tone and overall texture.

Recovery time

The recovery time depends on the strength of the chemical peel. After a superficial peel, the skin will be red and tingly for only a few minutes, like a sunburn. Normal activities can typically be resumed immediately. A medium peel may require a few days of downtime (5-7 days for the skin to heal).

PDO Mono - Threads

This innovative minimally-invasive procedure uses a subdermal threading technique to lift and tighten the face. During a PDO Mono - Thread appointment, Dr. Sacca inserts an absorbable suture beneath the skin and gently adjusts the skin to improve contours and add definition. The suture helps restore structure and prompt new collagen production. Once production is triggered, the additional collagen reserves can give lasting positive effects. Over time the thread will be naturally absorbed by the body. PDO Mono is excellent for tightening a sagging jawline and neck and improving the laxity in the cheeks.

Recovery time

Because PDO Mono - Threads does not involve surgery or incisions, the recovery time in minimal. Most patients can return to work without missing a beat. Immediately after a treatment, the skin may be slightly bruised or swollen in places. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve themselves in a few days. Some activities, such as strenuous exercise, should be avoided or restricted for one to two weeks after the procedure.
