Exfoliation Treatments

Exfoliation Treatments in Austin

Exfoliation is the removal of the dead, keratinized skin cells sitting on the skin’s surface.

The process of exfoliation leaves the skin with a smoother and fresher tone and texture, allowing easier penetration of medical grade products like serums onto the skin’s surface.

It is important to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin, since it is constantly generating new skin cells to make way for younger skin cells. Vitalogy Skincare offers a variety of exfoliating treatments to help you achieve healthy, beautiful skin including:
  • Light Exfoliating Chemical Peels: Light chemical peels are great for patients who are new to chemical peels. These peels can improve mild to moderate cases of acne, soften the look of fine lines, and even out skin texture. Learn more about Light Exfoliating Peels here.
  • Retinol Chemical Peel: A Retinol peel is a type of chemical peel that exfoliates the skin and is often combined with other peeling agents depending on the patient’s skin type, the texture of their skin, and desired skin care goals. Retinol peels use Vitamin A as an exfoliating agent which leaves the skin with smooth, vibrant, and rejuvenating lasting results. Learn more about Retinol Chemical Peels here.
  • Jessner’s Chemical Peel: A Jessner’s peel is a light- to medium-depth chemical peel used to help reduce acne, aid in diminishing sun damage and fine lines, and assist with the treatment of Melasma. If you want to reduce the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation, then the Jessner peel can be an effective treatment to meet your skin care goals.

  • TCA Chemical Peel: The active ingredient in a TCA peel is trichloroacetic acid, which is a non-toxic, safe chemical used for facial skin peel treatments. TCA has the advantage of creating a fresh natural complexion while preserving the normal skin color. It is commonly used to treat fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes, and pigment problems.

  • Melanage Chemical Peel: A Melanage® Peel is a skin brightening system used for uneven skin tone, deep pigment issues, and melasma. The melanage peel helps to even out the skin tone of the affected skin areas and removes layers of dead skin cells to help achieve an active effective penetration of melanin inhibitor ingredients.

  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a fast, non-invasive procedure that gently resurfaces the skin. It can help improve the appearance of roughly textured skin, fine wrinkles, superficial scars, uneven pigmentation, and age spots. Microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of skin (also known as exfoliation), exposing the newer skin cells below and leading to more youthful-looking skin.

  • Dermaplaning: Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that uses a special surgical blade to gently slough away the top layer of the epidermis. A dermaplaning facial is ideal for anyone interested in removal of vellus facial hair (often called peach fuzz) and is an alternative for patients not suited for microdermabrasion.

  • Clinical Facial: A clinical facial includes a medical exfoliation and extractions to help clear pores of dirt and debris as well as remove dead surface cells from the skin. Your Vitalogy Medical Spa Aesthetician will recommend the methods and products suitable for your skin to help meet your aesthetic goals. Learn more about Clinical Facials here.
