Chemical peels are a great procedure to improve the overall appearance of your skin, neck, or hands. Not only can chemical peels include minimizing acne scars, but they can also reduce the signs of aging and decrease age or sunspots. A chemical peel is exactly how it sounds. A chemical solution is applied to your skin and your skin sheds off a layer, leaving a brand new layer of your skin vulnerable and sensitive for a short period. You can receive chemical peels during these hot summer months, however it requires strict sun avoidance to prevent re-pigmenting the skin and potentially reversing any progress you have made in your skincare journey. Since peels can be an investment and sometimes require multiple sessions before you achieve the results you want, we are excited to now be offering a better option at our Scottsdale Med Spa.
At DHH Med Spa Scottsdale we are now offering The Unicorn Facial just in time for summer. Otherwise known as PRX-T33, this treatment was first introduced in Europe and has recently been made available in the United States. The Unicorn Facial can be used to remove stretch marks, acne scars, melasma, and overall skin pigmentation. The Unicorn Facial is a facial peeling treatment composed of 33% TCA and 67% hydrogen peroxide, as well as Kojic acid. This blend works by penetrating the dermis and activating a process of regeneration without attacking the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin. The unicorn facial promotes stimulation of fibroblasts and growth factors without causing inflammation or damaging the skin. Taking out the issue of attacking the epidermis, this treatment is safe to be performed at any time of the year, unlike peeling, because it is not photosensitizing, and it is suitable for all skin types. This is a non-invasive, non-ablative, painless treatment. The Unicorn Facial works well both as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other treatments, such as a dermaplane or microneedling. After receiving the treatment, results can be noticed immediately and there is no redness or peeling, so you can go back to everyday life. This is truly a lunchtime procedure!
This summer you should consider trying this new method of needle-free bio-rejuvenation which improves the appearance of your skin without causing damage to it. You can book your first session online or come in for a free consultation to discuss a treatment plan tailored to your individual treatment needs. Depending on what the skincare concern is, multiple sessions may be recommended. Due to the reduced downtime with this procedure, this treatment is safe to do more frequent than traditional peels, this means you can see results faster! It is a quick procedure, and you will be in and out of the office in less than an hour, it may just be your favorite new treatment!
