Chemical peel treatments can be customized for each patient. Chemical peels can treat fine, medium and course wrinkles and lines, various blemishes, freckles, certain sun damage, age spots, and pre-cancerous growth. In some cases, chemical peels may even control acne and soften scars caused by acne. Chemical peel is not permanent nor will it slow down the aging process. Though chemical peel may reduce the amount of visible wrinkles and fine lines, it should not be looked at as a substitution for facelift surgery. Because chemical peels are uniquely customized for each patient based on skin condition and desired result, consultation with a doctor will provide more detailed answers to your individual questions. People with a history of heart disease or people with a history of herpes should inform their doctor during consultation as these conditions pose specific risks to certain peel procedures.
f you would like to improve the overall smoothness of your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a TCA peel may be right for you. TCA stands for trichloroacetic acid and is considered to be what is called a medium chemical peel. Basically, a solution of TCA is applied to your skin where it burns the upper layer of skin to a predetermined depth. After a few days, the burned skin becomes leathery and eventually peels off, revealing healthy, flushed, youthful skin underneath.
This is a medium depth peel designed for more extensive damage than AHA's can improve. It is made from salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid), lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) and resorcinol. Your surgeon or skin technician will apply a glycolic cleanser over your face to fully remove the oils and horny layer so that your Jessner's solution will penetrate properly. Then he or she will apply the Jessner's solution to your face, it will then burn slightly (although this uncomfortable sensation can be relieved by a fan blowing cool air on your treatment area). you may have several layers applied depending. You may develop a whitened look, known as "frosting" that will dissipate within a few hours. Then your skin technician will neutralize the acid and remove your solution with cool water. Your technician may apply a calming mask and you will be sent home. You will peel and flake for about 7 days and turn pink or brown afterwards. After you heal nice, smooth skin will be revealed.
FLOWER ACID PEEL
A variation on the Jessner Peel is also made with lactic acid and salicylic acid. It is excellent for sun damaged and pigmented skin.
A deeper peel that leaves you with a bronze tanned look that you go to work with. Skin peels off by itself within 3-4 days. Excellent for fine to medium wrinkles.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a gentle, light-touch, noninvasive technique that offers qualified therapists a natural complement to their existing health care protocols. Within the context of breast care, LDT can help alleviate numerous conditions related to pregnancy, including engorgement, sore nipples (transient, chronic), plugged ducts, wounds, fissures, ulcerations, bruises and dermatitis (eczema). This therapy also can provide relief from chronic inflammation and pre- and post-surgical applications, and can be used for cosmetic applications, such as mastoptosis, scars and traumas.
High intensity focused ultrasound treatments to lift the face and other body parts with one treatment. The UltheraŽ System is an engineering achievement that has adapted time-honored medical ultrasound to address unmet needs in the aesthetic arena. With the system, physicians will now have a new category of cosmetic procedure with which to counter the affects of aging on the skin - Ultherapy.
First came fillers in the Eighties, then lasers, then Botox--all still useful in their own way. And there's always been surgery. Now there's UltherapyŽ-a face and neck treatment that creates a brand new category in aesthetics-non-invasive tissue lifting.
We are the only one in the region with it including Albany. The treatments can be given by the aesthetician but William will be doing it too.
