Dr. Moynahan’s Chemical Peels

Genetics, aging and lifestyle contribute to the appearance of aging skin. Pollutants are significant causes of premature aging of the face. Sun exposure, smog, wind, cold weather, overly hot showers, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, recreational drugs and stress accelerate the development of lines, wrinkles and sagging. Elasticity and collagen are diminished, color changes occur such as age spots, freckles, mask of pregnancy and broken capillaries. Chemical peels serve as a remedy to improve these imperfections by healing the environmental wounding of the skin.

Dr. Moynahan’s Refining Chemical Peel

This peel is designed to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores by removing impacted oil, black heads and white heads, fade brown spots and control acne breakouts. Texture and tone are improved and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. Our 70% medical grade buffered alpha-hydroxy peel contributes to exfoliation and provides barrier protection. It helps skin to become smooth and brightened.

Dr. Moynahan’s Remedy Peel for Oily Skin

Did you know that oily skin actually has benefits? It resists sun damage, and provides Vitamin E, which is an anti-oxidant, an effective anti-aging element. When it is excessive, however, it leads to clogged and enlarged pores and promotes the development of pustules and pimples. A dull and unhealthy shine results. We use beta hydroxy peels to control oiliness, evacuate comedones (whiteheads and blackheads) and shrink pores. Oily skin is resolved, acneic breakouts, a roughened surface and discoloration are decreased. Shine is minimized and a clear, smooth complexion emerges.

Dr. Moynahan’s Problem Skin Solver Peel

A Jessner Peel is utilized to remove the superficial layers of skin, evacuate blackheads, lighten hyperpigmentation and minimize fine lines and superficial scars. Skin becomes clearer, brighter and smoother.

Dr. Moynahan’s Booster Peel

This is a combination therapy utilizing a Jessner Peel which primes the facial skin for combination with the Refining Chemical Peel to penetrate deeply into the skin where damage is most significant. Performance is enhanced and results improved. This advanced treatment effects significant exfoliation, reduces hyperpigmentation, reverses sun damage, boosts tone, refines texture and minimizes mild scarring

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooth scars and improve texture and tone. There is no down-time and it is often scheduled as a “Lunch Hour” enhancement. Microcrystals are gently applied over the face providing a mild abrasion that loosens dead skin, frees surface pollutants, and unblocks clogged pores. Debris is carefully vacuumed away. Skin is cleansed, refreshed, and softened. A delicate glow results. We advise a series of four to six treatments to achieve the most improvement.

Masks

Masks are used between peels and other treatments to maintain the positive results. Several benefits can be enjoyed by different types of masks. These include:

· Lightening and Brightening

· Firming

· Replenishing Mask – Infusion of Moisturize

· Oil Control (anti-acneic)

· Retexurizing – smoother, more even skin, diminishes the appearance of pores.

· Hydrapeptide Mask – Intensive hydrating gel mask for dry sensitive skin
