Micro-needling produces a non-thermal and minimally ablative treatment that can be performed on all skin tones reducing the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or
fibrotic scar tissue
IS THE TREATMENT SAFE?
Yes. All treatment needles are single-use and sterile.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results typically may be seen after just one treatment, however cumulative treatments may be required to achieve the full desired results. The regenerating process will continue for up to 24 months post-treatment.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
Localized swelling may last up to 2 days post treatment. Make-up may be used 24 hours post procedure to reduce visible redness. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after a micro-needling treatment.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN A MICRO - NEEDLING PROCEDURE TREAT?
Micro-Needling is able to treat various conditions, such as aging, wrinkles, dilated pores, milia, scarring and more.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I REQUIRE?
Generalized rejuvenation can be achieved in as little as three treatments. Conditions such as scarring may require a minimum of 5 sessions. Depending on the condition being targeted, treatments are performed on average 4 weeks, with maintenance treatments every six months.
A phenol or TCA peel can result in tingling or throbbing, reddened skin, a crust or scab, and significant swelling that lasts, depending on the strength of the peel used, about a week. With a phenol peel, eyes may be swollen shut at first, and the patient may be put on a liquid diet and advised to keep talking to a minimum. Any tape used is removed after a day or two. AHA peels can cause temporary stinging, redness and irritation, as well as flaking or crusting. After a chemical peel, it is essential that the skin be protected from the sun.

Glycolic Peels (30%,50%,70%)
During the glycolic peel process, the skin sheds dead cells revealing a smoother, moister, and fresher skin surface. A Glycolic Peel stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. It also loosens built-up oil and dirt in the pores, thus reducing the development of pimples and blemishes while minimizing the appearance of the pores. Our peels are available in varying strengths of glycolic acid, an all-natural substance derived from sugar cane, which will be formulated to help you achieve the results you desire.
Mandelic Acid Peels
This is a favorite at Chelsea Laser and Aesthetics. It is derived from almonds, a gentle peel that tightens pores while it exfoliates. It especially makes the skin glow in a healthy way. Patients enjoy this peel just before an important event in order to look fresh and healthy.
A practice favorite from Copenhagen, Denmark. There is a mild peppermint peel and an intense peppermint peel. Patients tell us how relaxing and soothing this treatment makes them feel.
PMP Peppermint Peel Mild is the softer of the two innovative chemical peels. It has been formulated at a lower strength to penetrate more superficial than PMP Intense, which makes it useful for reducing pigmentations, fine lines and enlarged pores. It is a revitalizing skincare treatment that effectively treats chrono-aged and photo-aged skin by removing aging cells and stimulating new cell growth. Peppermint Peel Mild is made from a combination of 5 different acids including 11% TCA, 6 moisturizers, and peptides with immediate effects. Furthermore, the non-toxic chemical peels contains menthol, which cools the skin during the process and provides optimal comfort during the treatment. There is no pain or downtime.
Geneo - Oxygenation, Exfoliation, Nourishment...Coming Soon
The facial of the future is here. Geneo is an innovative facial treatment that works both on the inside and outside of the skin.
The Geneo Difference
Targeted ingredients in the Geneo OxyPods react with the Geneo Primer Gel creating a gentle, non-invasive exfoliation on the outside, while triggering the oxygenation process inside the skin.
Oxygen is carried to the surface of the skin where the increased levels of oxygen prep the skin for maximum absorption throughout the rest of the facial treatment.
A blend of active ingredients is infused into the oxygenated and exfoliated skin during our ultrasound and neo-massage steps.
Fast & Efficient
