Frequently Asked Questions

How does photoaging affect my skin?

If you feel your skin makes you look a bit older than your biological age, you may be noticing the effects of photoaging, or the premature aging of skin cells caused by long-term sun exposure.

Ultraviolet rays cause as much as 90% of the early signs of premature skin aging. Typical signs of photoaging include:

  • Fine lines around your eyes and mouth
  • Pigmented spots, including freckles and age spots
  • Noticeable loss of skin tone and texture
  • Thinning lips that look taut and pale

Although the effects of photoaging can appear anywhere on your body, including your hands, shoulders, and legs, you’re more likely to notice it on your face.

How can a chemical peel help?

A chemical peel is a noninvasive clinical skin treatment that directly addresses the damaging effects of photoaging. It involves applying a therapeutic chemical formulation that gently “peels,” or lifts away, the top layer of your skin.

One of the main benefits of chemical peels is that they’re customizable — we can use the treatment on any skin type to take care of a comprehensive range of common flaws, such as:

  • Dull, blotchy complexion
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots or other pigmented spots
  • Minor surface indentations or scars
  • Leathery, saggy skin texture

Depending on your skin needs, a chemical peel may be applied to your entire face or just to specific areas, such as the wrinkles around your mouth.

The peel’s overall depth of action depends on a variety of factors, including its ingredients, how it’s applied, and how long it remains on your skin before being neutralized.

What are the main types of chemical peels?

All chemical peels are designed to exfoliate dead skin cells, improve skin texture, and help open pores. Deeper chemical peels go one step further by correcting uneven skin tone and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots.

When you have a chemical peel, you can expect a customized version of one of the following:

Superficial chemical peels

This superficial skin treatment uses alpha or beta hydroxy acids to create smooth skin, diminish the appearance of dark spots, and help unclog your pores. A superficial chemical peel is quick and has minimal downtime, making it an ideal component of your ongoing skincare regimen. When done at two- to four-week intervals, a superficial peel can help reduce the appearance of fine lines over time.

Medium depth chemical peel

This treatment contains a stronger concentration of trichloroacetic acid, an ingredient that has a significant diminishing effect on age spots and deep wrinkles. Because a medium peel works at deeper layers, the treatment area appears slightly sunburned for about a week, or the amount of time it takes the collagen renewal process to reveal healthier-looking skin.

What is the Cost of a Chemical Peel?

The price of cosmetic treatments vary from person to person and depends on the treatment plan designed specifically for you. During your consultation, we will assess the quality of your skin and talk to you about your goals to develop a treatment plan. During this time, we’ll also discuss the price and financing options available to you.

✨ @drgeria was recently featured in the article by @livestrong_com where he shared his opinion on the use of dry shampoo.

👎Dry shampoo can be a convenient hair care product, its frequent and improper use may have some potential drawbacks.

🫧It should not replace regular hair washing entirely, as it doesn`t cleanse the scalp as effectively as traditional shampoo and water.

👉Overuse of dry shampoo can lead to product buildup, clogged hair follicles, and a dry scalp.

❗️Dr. Geria recommends using dry shampoo sparingly and recommends washing your hair regularly to maintain scalp health and prevent potential issues.

🩸Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge medical procedure that harnesses the healing power of your own blood.

💉It involves drawing a small sample of your blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, growth factors, and other beneficial components, and then injecting this PRP back into the body at targeted areas.

👨‍⚕️PRP is widely used in various medical fields, including orthopedics, dentistry, and aesthetics.

💆‍♂️💆‍♀️It’s particularly popular in dermatology and hair restoration for its ability to stimulate tissue repair, collagen production, and cell regeneration, promoting healthier skin and hair growth.

👍Benefits of PRP for hair restoration:

✨Stimulates hair growth.
✨Strengthens existing hair.
✨Improves hair thickness and density.
✨Enhances overall hair health.
✨Minimizes hair loss.

❓Did you know?

👉Consuming a diet that is rich in sugar and heavily processed foods can potentially have a significant impact on skin health and lead to the development of skin inflammation.

👎Processed foods often contain high levels of refined sugars, which can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels. This triggers the release of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar, but can also have pro-inflammatory effects.

🙅‍♀️Chronic consumption of excessive sugars and processed carbohydrates may contribute to a state of chronic inflammation, which is believed to be a contributing factor to the exacerbation of skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

🥦In contrast, opting for a diet rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, provides the body with the necessary building blocks for healthy skin.

👍These foods supply essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can support the skin`s natural defense mechanisms and minimize the risk of inflammation-related skin issues.

✨Therefore, making mindful dietary choices can contribute to maintaining clear, vibrant, and healthy skin.
