The effects of IPL® usually last for up to a year, but Dr. Raskin recommends scheduling a maintenance treatment every six months.
To give your skin a softer, smoother texture and remove any superficial imperfections, Dr. Raskin my recommend a chemical peel. We will design a chemical solution to suit your unique needs and apply it directly to your skin. The ingredients of the solution exfoliate the top layers of your skin so that new, healthier, younger-looking skin can grow in its place. You should see results within a week, and the effects typically last between four and six months.
Microneedling involves rolling a Derma Roller across your face to stimulate collagen growth. The needles, when gently pressed against your skin with even pressure, create tiny punctures. This, in turn, activates your self-healing mechanisms and rejuvenates the rolled skin. It has been known to diminish unwanted imperfections like wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars.
