Annapolis Plastic Surgery offers advanced skin care services to target skin problems such as wrinkles, age spots, acne, rosacea, dry skin and more. We offer a variety of medical grade, chemical peels performed by a licensed aesthetician and skin care specialist.
The first step is a skin analysis to determine which treatments and products are best for your goals. Our professionals will meet with you in a one-on-one consultation to evaluate your skin and discuss your problems. Together, you will design a treatment plan to help you achieve healthier, younger looking skin.
Skin Care Services
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment good for anyone who has fine facial hair, sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins. During the dermaplaning treatment, a blade is used to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair known as “peach fuzz”. Notice fresh, soft, smooth skin immediately following the treatment. Hair grows back softly and will not become coarser because of the treatment.
Dermaplaning & Lactic Acid Peel
A chemical peel done immediately after dermaplaning is a great way to ensure the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly. A lactic acid peel will hydrate and further exfoliate dry and normal skin.
Skin Resurfacing is an exfoliation technique that leaves skin more supple and vibrant. Our treatment features the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System, an evolution in microdermabrasion technology. This revolutionary new system removes the topmost layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips that are at the tip of the wand, while at the same time vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. The result is a uniform abrasion without the adverse effects of loose particles, gritty residue, burning, irritations and skin reactions.
This treatment leaves a smother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. For maximum results, combine this treatment with a customized light chemical peel.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical procedure improves the tone and texture of skin. To help our patients achieve smoother skin texture, Annapolis Plastic Surgery administers DiamondTome microdermabrasion. This high-precision microdermabrasion technology allows our experts to treat a variety of skin conditions, including dark spots on face, dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scars, among other skin conditions.
In the crystal method, the skin is blasted with tiny crystals that dislodge skin cells due to the force with which they hit the skin. Although this can be a very effective way to aggressively resurface the skin, it can also be more difficult to apply evenly. For example, crystals can sometimes clump up, causing more exfoliation in one area than in another. With DiamondTome microdermabrasion, this is less of a concern, because there are no crystals involved.
Instead, the applicator of the DiamondTome machine uses diamond tips that are scrubbed against the skin.
Microdermabrasion is also an excellent follow up treatment to laser skin rejuvenation and can be used to help extend the results of any skin care treatment.
