Summer is coming to a close, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing! With fall soon approaching, (or what we get of fall here in south Florida anyway) it means less time spent in the sun, making room for PEEL SEASON! Here are our top 3 procedures you can look forward to this time of year!
- Perfect Derma Peel for Hyperpigmentation/Uneven Skin Tone
Fall is the perfect time for the Perfect Peel. Using a combination of salicylic acids, phenol, vitamin C, trichloracetic acid, and retinol the Perfect Peel sheds outer layer of skin
to produce amazing, rejuvenating results. It contains the antioxidant Glutathione to reduce the harmful effects that free radicals can have upon healthy skin. It also contains Kojic acid that brightens the skin and fades hyperpigmentation.
The Retinoic acid, Phenol, and trichloroacetic acid work together to correct pigmentation problems and reduce wrinkles, while the salicylic acid reduces inflammation and exfoliates away dry, dead skin. While exfoliants are great during summer because they remove dead skin, they’re only penetrating the outermost layer.
Chemical Peels expose deeper layers, which means skin is much more sensitive towards heat and UV rays post-application. By getting a chemical peel during cooler, fall and winter months, your skin is much more protected during the recovery/healing stages. This is especially true for those receiving treatment in multiple sessions or choosing a deeper peel procedure.
- Laser Treatments for Sun Damage
Here at Waverly we offer state of the art laser treatments such as:
The Excel V+ is a state of the art laser that uses a high powered green beam to target red (vascular) and brown discoloration (sun spots) in the skin. It’s very specific, so it targets the problem area without affecting the skin nearby. Each laser treatment can be adjusted and tailored to your needs.
The Clear + Brilliant Touch laser. It works for patients of all ages and skin types. By seamlessly switching between two wavelengths with the Original and Perméa® handpieces, you can have 2 treatments in a single appointment. Clear + Brilliant improves the look of fine lines, reduces the appearance of pores, improves skin tone and texture and makes skin glow. It’s the ultimate face maintenance and prejuvenation laser. Best of all, it’s very comfortable and there’s very little downtime.
The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin. It uses microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. Since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out. We can adjust the laser to give you anything from a quick refresh to a total overhaul.
- Summer bodies are built in the fall with TruBody
Kickstart your body goals with the TruBody system. It is composed of two parts, TruSculpt Flex and TruSculpt ID. truSculpt flex is a non-invasive muscle sculpting device, cleared by the FDA for the strengthening, firming and toning of abdominal, buttocks and thigh muscles.
truSculpt flex can improve muscle tone by inducing muscle contractions using electric current and is unique in being customizable based on the patient’s fitness level, shape, and goals.
truSculpt iD is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment that is clinically proven to reduce fat cells in stubborn areas like the double chin, bra fat, abdomen, thighs, and flanks. truSculpt iD uses innovative Monopolar RF technology to selectively target fat and therapeutically heat it – until damaged fat cells are slowly broken down and eliminated from the treated area for a 12-week period. In one short 15-minute treatment, you can achieve an average of 24% fat reduction.
