Are Facials & Peels for Me?

Individuals with uneven skin texture, discoloration, signs of aging, acne, or a dull complexion can benefit from a facial or peel. Many of our patients also choose these procedures to brighten and refresh their appearance. A facial at Hubbard Plastic Surgery involves a gentle, deep cleaning of the skin to remove dirt and clear pores using high-quality, medical-grade cleansers and moisturizers. Microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates your skin. We use the crystal-free DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System.

Chemical peels are solutions applied to the skin to encourage exfoliation. Chemical peels can also penetrate deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen production. Peels can soften fine lines, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation and can help treat acne breakouts.

Your Facial & Peel Options

Hubbard Plastic Surgery provides a number of high-quality facials and peels for every skin type. Some of the services we offer include:

Facials

Pamper your skin and your soul in a relaxed, comfortable setting. We offer customized facial treatments that can be tailored to your personal skin care needs. Facials are ideal for gently smoothing skin tone and texture. Facials are great to incorporate with the use of medical-grade skin care products.

Microdermabrasion

Also known as "particle skin resurfacing," this non-invasive, non-surgical procedure uses the crystal-free DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System to gently remove the outermost layer of skin to reveal smoother, more radiant skin beneath. Additionally, microdermabrasion maximizes the penetration of other skin care products, making them more effective. This is an excellent treatment for all skin types, including oily or acne-prone skin. Microdermabrasion may be performed at regular intervals for a sustained improvement. Learn more about this option. Here's an introduction:

  • Light and gentle mechanical exfoliation
  • Good for all skin types, especially acne-prone skin; works well in combination with other treatments
  • Little to no downtime
  • Can be performed every 2 weeks
  • A series of 3 to 5 treatments is recommended

Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE™

This is a light peel containing a salicylic acid-based peeling agent. It offers a unique blend of acids, providing a gentle but effective peel that is safe for all skin types. After just a single treatment, patients notice an improved complexion with tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin. This peel gently improves a range of mild skin conditions including sun damage, the appearance of fine lines, and melasma, and can be helpful in the treatment of acneic skin. It can be performed every 2 weeks, and for best results, a series of 4 to 6 peels is recommended, followed by a medically supervised skin care regimen. Here's a breakdown:

  • Light and gentle superficial chemical exfoliation
  • Good for all skin types, especially oily, acneic skin
  • Little to no downtime
  • Can be performed every 2 weeks
  • A series of 4 to 6 treatments is recommended for best results

SkinMedica Vitalize Peel®

This is a medium peel containing a unique blend of salicylic acid, lactic acid, resorcinol, and retinoic acid that is safe for all skin types, making it ideal for treating a range of mild to moderate skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne breakouts, melasma (pregnancy mask), the appearance of fine lines, and rough or irregular skin texture. The texture and tone of your skin will look and feel renewed, and your complexion will be brighter and more even. Patients will notice improvements after just 1 peel, but a series of 3 to 6 peels is recommended for optimal results, and this peel can be performed as often as every 3 weeks. Solution will remain on the skin 4 to 6 hours, but normal activity can be resumed during this period. Additionally, skin will appear yellowish immediately after treatment, but patients may apply mineral powder makeup if cover-up is desired. This coloration will fade after about 1 hour. Patients can expect peeling to begin within 48 hours and to continue for 2 to 3 days. Patients are also advised to limit sun exposure and wear plenty of sunscreen during this period. Here's more on this peel:

  • Medium chemical exfoliation
  • Good for all skin types and those with acne, pigmentation, and texture issues
  • Skin will appear yellowish immediately after treatment, but this will fade after approximately 1 hour. Patients may apply mineral powder cover-up if desired.
  • Moderate peeling begins within 48 hours and continues for 2 to 3 days
  • Patients should plan to limit sun exposure during peeling phase
  • Can be performed every 3 weeks
  • A series of 3 to 6 peels is recommended for best results
  • Patients enrolled in Brilliant Distinctions® earn 50 points per peel

During Your Procedure

Our skin care specialist Denise Kail or Dr. Hubbard will evaluate your unique skin type and then customize a treatment based on your concerns and needs. Depending on the level of correction you would like to experience, different treatment strengths may be recommended.

Recovery and Healing

Our skin care treatments have varying recovery times; however, most require minimal to no downtime. Our patients typically return to their normal daily activities within the hour.

A Complete Makeover

Many people experience enhanced benefits when they combine facials and peels with anti-aging treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers. Peels can also be used after facial surgery to stimulate collagen, brighten the complexion, and further enhance your result.
