Frequently Asked Questions
My skin has become so dry and itchy. What can I do?
Skin can become dry and itchy, especially during the winter months and in hot, dry climates. Using luke warm water and non-soap cleansers are helpful because the skin’s natural oils are protected. Thick creams used twice daily can be incredibly beneficial.
If you have a persistent itch, rash or skin change, you should seek the help of a dermatologist. There are countless causes for itchy skin including eczema, allergies, poison oak, systemic disease, insect bites, fungal and viral infections.
What can I do to brighten my dull and uneven complexion?
A light chemical peel is a great option for rejuvenating tired skin. Alpha hydroxy acids and other chemical exfoliants are used to loosen dead surface cells revealing a firmer more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can be used to treat uneven tone, acne breakouts and the superficial signs of aging.
I have heard that chemical peels are uncomfortable and leave the skin red and irritated. What will my skin look like following a chemical peel treatment?
