A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. KafkaCare utilizes chemical peels for various medical and cosmetic conditions. They can improve freckles, age and dark spots, acne scars, fine lines & wrinkles, acne and acne scars, sun-damaged skin. Chemical peels are used mostly on the face but they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck, hands, feet, and body.
Chemical resurfacing or chemical peels are procedures that consist on application of a chemical solution to improve the texture and color of the facial skin by removing the abnormal or damaged outer layers and stimulating the growth of glowing skin. Additional agents can be used during the treatment to further address pigmentation, redness, acne, fine lines and other problems.
Dr.Kafka will determine which chemical agent is indicated for your individual concerns and skin type, to achieve the best cosmetic results. There are options available for all skin types and colors. No sedation or anesthesia is required. Discomfort is usually minimal and recovery time will vary depending on the chemical agent used. Ideally chemical peels are approached as a series of treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
Dr. Kafka uses PCA SKIN® care professional products and develops plans for home skin care, using their daily care products, which are available for purchase. All peels include a complimentary post-peel kit to be used for the first week after the treatment for best results.
Skin care products are also available from Stemology(TM). These products are all-natural, ethical and organic and utilize human and plant stem cell-derived materials. Plans can use one line or the other, or combine, for optimal effect.
