St. Petersburg area residents are subject to many of the same skin complaints as the rest of the country. One aggravating difference is that they tend to spend more time enjoying the abundant outdoor activities the area is known for, which takes more of a toll on their skin. That is probably why they also frequently use med spa treatments.
If you are dealing with skin conditions like scars, blemishes, or wrinkles, a medical-grade chemical peel may significantly enhance the appearance of your skin. There are different forms of chemical peels available at our office in St. Petersburg. Each involves the application of a solution to your skin to remove the outer skin layer, which forces up new skin from beneath to reduce skin imperfections.
If you only require the correction of mild skin conditions like lines, wrinkles and scars, a lighter type of chemical peel at our med spa may be right for you. This is the gentlest type of chemical peel available and only removes the outer layer of skin or epidermis.
If your skin condition is more serious, a deeper type of chemical peel may be required to tackle more stubborn skin problems. Serious skin blemishes, deeper scars, and deeper-set wrinkles may benefit from a deeper chemical peel treatment. This type of peel removes not only the outer epidermis layer of skin, but some of the lower layers as well.
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that help promote facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. They typically include substances like hyaluronic acid. Since they are minimally-invasive, they require little to no downtime or side effects.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid to replace that which has been lost during the aging process. Hyaluronic acid is a special substance that promotes an increase in skin moisture, leading to increased skin thickness. After a med spa treatment with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, your skin will be more hydrated and plumper.
