Skin Care Treatments and Products Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel offers a quick way to achieve smoother, less-wrinkled skin that looks vibrant and fresh. The expert aesthetic team at Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID customizes chemical peel treatments for you to address concerns that include:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Melasma or other hyperpigmentation
  • Sagging skin and wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Acne scars

The Vitalize Peel® used at Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID is appropriate for all skin types. Let Dr. Chowdhury evaluate your complexion and help you determine if a chemical peel is the right treatment for you.

What is microdermabrasion?

The technicians at Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID use a minimally abrasive instrument to exfoliate your skin during a microdermabrasion session. The process removes old, dead skin cells to reveal a fresh, smoother layer.

The motorized, handheld microdermabrasion device is equipped with fine crystals. When applied to the surface of your skin, it exfoliates the thicker, uneven outer layer.

The deep exfoliation of microdermabrasion stimulates your skin’s production of collagen, a skin-strengthening protein. This natural compound is plentiful in your skin when you’re young, giving you a smooth, plump, hydrated look. As you age, collagen production naturally decreases, so stimulating it through microdermabrasion can improve skin laxity and reduce uneven texture.

If you’ve considered trying microdermabrasion as a self-treatment at home, Dr. Chowdhury doesn’t recommend it. Having it done by experienced professionals is safer and produces better results. The high-quality grade of microdermabrasion offered at Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID is not achievable at home.

What is microneedling?

The team at Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID uses the SkinPen® Precision system to perform all microneedling procedures. This FDA-cleared microneedling device is equipped with tiny needles that, when pressed against your skin, create micro injuries to stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process. The tiny holes are invisible to the eye, but your body sends growth factors and boosts collagen production to heal them -- resulting in stronger, smoother, more radiant skin.

Following the microneedling procedure, the staff applies growth factor serums to your skin to help with healing. Because of the micro holes, your skin is temporarily more able to absorb the serums.
