Just the Beginning of This Patient's Skin Metamorphosis!*

Procedure Details

WOW! This patient has only received one of the six treatments in the plan we have put in place for her, and we have already started to see such a beautiful transformation! This patient's treatment plan consists of alternating three SkinMedica Vitalize chemical peels, and three Intense Pulsed Light treatments. She will come in every 4 weeks, and alternate these treatments. This patient came to Mountcastle Medspa with general anti-aging concerns. We will perform three SkinMedica "Vitalize" chemical peels for brightening, smoother texture, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and to aide in the fading of sun damage. The three IPLs (Intense Pulsed Light) will not only bring to the surface and remove sun damage (brown spots), but also correct redness caused by broken vessels in the skin. We have put the patient on at-home corrective treatment products to assure her skin is in repair mode around the clock! This ensures prevention and correction of aging concerns even after she completes her in-office treatment plan. She is using SkinMedica's "Lytera 2.0," which will not only suppress the hyperpigmentation, but will also prevent hyperpigmentation from getting darker when exposed to the sun. Lytera 2.0 is free of Hydroquinone, and is safe to use long term! She is also using SkinMedica's "Retinol Complex" (0.5 strength) to slough off rough, dull, damaged cells, and encourage collagen and elastin production.

Diligence + Patience is Key!

Hyperpigmentation and melasma are both stubborn skin conditions, and take time to see full correction! Ragan, one of our Master Aestheticians, says "Being patient with your skin, diligent in using your corrective skincare, and coming in regularly for the treatments we have planned out for you is SO important!  We make sure our patients have a realistic idea of the beautiful result they will achieve if they stay the course!  We LOVE seeing results such as what we've seen with this patient!  And this is just the beginning of her treatments!"
