Microneedling is a minimally invasive facial treatment that encourages the natural rejuvenation and anti-aging processes of your skin while injecting serum to encourage collagen and elastin growth. The advanced surgical device used ensures precise punctures with the necessary depth and speed needed to target collagen growth in specific areas of the face. Microneedling is used to treat the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Minor scars
- Stretch marks
PeelsA chemical peel is a treatment to improve and smooth the texture of your facial skin, causing dead skin to slough off to reveal new and healthy-looking skin. Chemical peels use specific formulations and are safe to use on almost all skins. They vary in strength because they are designed for your skin type or condition. During your consultation, our friendly and educated plastic surgeon will be able to determine which chemical peel and treatment program will be best for you depending on your goals. There are many benefits to a chemical peel. First, chemical peels can help remove rough skin from the face. They can also improve irregular skin pigmentation from sun-damaged skin. Finally, they can help soften any fine lines and wrinkles that you have on your face. Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you receive the results that you are looking for. We will work with you to exceed your expectations. We are always willing to answer any of your questions before or after your treatment.

Perfect PeelIf you’re searching for healthy, glowing skin, The Perfect™ Derma Peel may be for you. At Dr. K’s Med Spa, we offer this remarkable solution to tone, tighten, and improve the brightness of your skin. You can say goodbye to dull, uneven complexions in as little as one treatment with this dermal peel.
How Does it Work?The way The Perfect™ Derma Peel works is through its powerful medical-grade formulation. Ingredients in the peel include:
- Glutathione – a peptide that works as a brightener, and coenzyme that reduces inflammation at a cellular level
- Trichloroacetic acid (TA) – a peeling agent that aids in the reduction of pigmentation, signs of aging, and acne
- Salicylic acid – a type of beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that helps exfoliate skin and unclog pores by breaking apart the attachments between cells in the outer layers of skin
- Retinoic acid – a derivative of retinol (vitamin A) that increases collagen production, reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, and stimulates the creation of new blood vessels which improves skin color and softens rough patches of skin
- Kojic acid – visible skin-lightener that also acts as an antimicrobial to reduce acne caused by bacteria on the skin
- Phenol – skin brightener and anti-bacterial agent that also acts as a mild numbing agent
- Vitamin C – an antioxidant brightener that improves skin-firmness and evens skin tone
What to ExpectA trained medical professional will apply the dermal peel to your face, which generally takes about 15 minutes. Afterward, you will need to leave the mask on for six hours. We will provide you with a home-care kit, which includes The Perfect™ Derma Moisturizer with 1% hydrocortisone and Post-Peel Towelettes. These products will help calm any itching, tightness, or redness that occurs over the next few days as the peel begins to work. During the first couple of days after your treatment, you may not notice any difference in your skin. Typically around the third day is when most patients report that the outer layer of skin, the epidermis, begins to peel. This peeling will last three to four more days – gently resurfacing your skin within seven to ten days. It will be tempting to pick, peel, or slough the shedding skin, but you should avoid doing so as it can lead to scarring. During this time, if the shedding is bothering you, you can use a small pair of cuticle scissors to trim away the parts that are loose but take care not to pull on the skin that has not lifted yet. For maximum results, we recommend two to four treatments with The Perfect™ Derma Peel at four-week intervals. Afterward, maintenance treatments can be performed once every three to six months.
ZO® 3 – Step Peel™:At Dr. K’s Med Spa, we are pleased to offer the ZO® 3-Step Peel™ to our patients looking for a simple, effective way to improve the look and feel of their skin. It is a dual-action peel administered here in our office by a professional aesthetician.
How Does it Work?Its proprietary blend of ingredients include exfoliants, retinol, and multi-action agents to treat signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and stimulate skin cells to renew themselves. The exfoliating and renewing formulation will improve your skin’s overall appearance as well as firmness, providing you with a youthful glow. In addition to treating the face, we can also address the neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs with this standout peel. Benefits include:
- Softened and rejuvenated skin
- Increased skin tolerance
- Reduced appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Softened look of fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulation of collagen production
What to ExpectWe apply the peel in three steps, which include: 1. Stimulation Peel – formulated to remove the outermost layer of skin through the use of potent ingredients such as salicylic acid, trichloracetic acid, and lactic acid; also includes saponins to reduce inflammation and glycerine for hydration 2. Retinol Creme – stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the appearance of fine lines while firming the skin 3. Revitatrol™ Epidermal Repair Creme – reduces inflammation and irritation, and restores your skin’s moisture balance You may experience some mild discomfort while the peel is applied, but it should go away after a few minutes. After receiving the ZO® 3-Step Peel™ in our office, we will provide you with an at-home treatment, which includes the Revitatrol™ Epidermal Repair Creme to reduce any inflammation and skin irritation further. Over the next week following the treatment, your skin will begin to peel and effectively shed the tired layers of epidermis that were dulling your glow and emphasizing fine lines. During this time, it is vital that you do not peel the skin that has begun to lift. Doing so may result in scarring or raw patches. If it is bothering you too much, we recommend using small cuticle scissors to trim away the areas that have completely lifted already.
