Specialized facials, skin peels, and microdermabrasion are just a few of the skin care treatments that are provided at Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery. Each treatment is used to improve a patient's complexion for a more youthful glow.
One thing that we do offer are European facials that is a facial that we offer for relaxation and a feel good. It hydrates and moisturizes the skin. We offer a lot of different procedures like microdermabrasion where we literally sandblast the skin. We vacuum the skin and blast little particles on to the skin and vacuuming alone can help to bring blood flow and circulation to the skin and the particles blast away the horny outer layers that are what is dead and by removing the dead cells we allow hydration to go into the pores. We offer different types of peels to the skin where we do glycolic acid peels, revitalizing peels where we totally remove the whole top layer of the epidermis to remove those dead skin cells. We offer deeper depths of peels depending on the individual and what that individual needs we will do him on the chest or the back or the face area. We offer things like photofacials where a patient would come in and what we do, we like to incorporate everything. We like to do skin care. We offer a full line of cosmetics where we have your basic makeup remover to a cleanser, to an eye cream, to different acids, hydroquinones, bleaching creams, retinols, and that is our full line of makeup and then we incorporate that into microdermabrasions and then we offer what we call a photofacial. The photofacial is used to burn off brown spots, remove telangiectasias which are broken capillaries, give you a more even tone to the skin. When I always think of a movie star, when I see them on the runways and they have those porcelain skins, they have been having photofacials done with different types of peels done to give them a healthy, fresh, dewy look to the skin and I think that is we are all trying to do is avoid the aging process and all we are trying to do is prolong the inevitable. So we try to do in a way to make the skin healthier and fresher.
