Just as skin conditions vary so, too, do the vast array of skin care programs available today. Most skin care products such as astringents, moisturizers and sunscreens are formulated to promote and maintain healthy skin, while others are geared toward repairing and rejuvenating aged or damaged skin. Dr. Aziz offers a variety of skin care treatments and programs to satisfy patients' needs. These services include laser resurfacing, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and a less invasive skin care program.
The chemical peel, or chemosurgery, is a non-invasive technique for restoring wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented, or sun-damaged skin, using a chemical solution to peel away the skin’s top layers. The new cells that form during the healing process produce a smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin surface. Chemical peels can be used on the full face or on specific regions, such as the forehead or the area around the mouth. Chemical peels are not a substitute for a facelift but many people can benefit from both procedures.
Dermabrasion helps to “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance. Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles or acne scarring. This procedure can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. Dermabrasion can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures.
