Micro Peels in Fort Worth

Individuals who want to reduce the appearance of age spots, pigmentation changes, or fine lines and wrinkles should get a professional micro peel at our Fort Worth office. Our Licensed Aesthetician and Certified Injector Jennifer Geyer can apply a chemical solution to the skin to remove dead skin cells and promote new skin growth.

Many of the chemicals used in facial peels are exfoliating substances and come in different concentrations. The more concentrated the solution, the deeper the chemical penetrate will the skin. Micro peels, however, use a gentler concentration of chemicals and are designed to target superficial blemishes on the skin’s surface.

How do Micro Peels Work?

A micro peel treatment uses both a chemical and microdermabrasion approach, relying on a mild, less acidic chemical solution designed to target superficial blemishes. Micro peels are very effective for treating fine lines, superficial wrinkles, age spots, and mild scarring, but a stronger chemical peel may be necessary for deeper blemishes and wrinkles. Jennifer will recommend which options are best suited for your skin and cosmetic goals.

How Can a Micro Peel Help?

Micro peels are an effective treatment for superficial skin anomalies and blemishes and can help improve your complexion by:

  • Reducing the size of facial pores
  • Removing dead and dull skin cells
  • Repairing imperfections caused by sun damage
  • Softening fine lines and wrinkles

The chemicals used are more effective than skincare products alone and can produce immediate and long-term results. Micro peels also increase the effectiveness of moisturizers and other daily skin treatments.

What Happens during a Micro Peel Procedure?

A micro peel treatment is typically done in our Fort Worth office and lasts about 30 minutes. First, Jennifer will apply a chemical irritant to the skin, causing dead skin cells to be gently removed via microdermabrasion or dermaplaning. A mild acid is then applied to the target areas, and you may experience some temporary burning and itching during this step. After the treatment, Jennifer may apply ice and moisturizing creams. Some patients with fair skin may experience redness after treatment, but results are visible after a single session.

However, depending on the patient and the areas of concern, a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results. You can return to normal day-to-day activities immediately after treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Micro Peel Treatment?

Qualified candidates for a micro peel treatment at our Fort Worth clinic are in overall good health. A micro peel treatment can benefit patients with the following conditions:

  • Age spots and uneven skin tones
  • Fine facial lines or wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Minor scars

Patients who have active acne, eczema, or dermatitis may not be ideal candidates. However, Jennifer can recommend certain non-ablative skin treatments to meet your goals.
