Since offering a “Break Time Peel” to our menu of nonsurgical antiaging services, our office has received wonderful feedback regarding this treatment protocol. In under an hour, our aesthetic nurse specialist, Elizabeth Reed, champions this visit which leaves patients looking luminous.
Recently Reed had the opportunity to perform a Break Time Peel on one of our patients, Christina M., 50.
“Elizabeth is my nurse injector for Botox, and I see her every few months for a touch-up. On my last visit with her, she mentioned how I may benefit from a Break Time Peel. I have had dermaplaning before but never a chemical peel in conjunction with it,” she said. “I decided to give it a try since Elizabeth also has me on a great SkinMedica routine. I trust Elizabeth, and she is a perfectionist.”
Before the treatment, Reed analyzed Christina’s facial canvas. She then prepared her face for the dermaplaning.
“I was used to this portion of the treatment. Elizabeth gently glides this stainless steel tool over my face,” Christina said. “There is no discomfort whatsoever and is quite relaxing.”
The dermaplaning removes vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz, as well as the top layer of dead skin cells.
Next came the light chemical peel.
“Elizabeth gently applied a topical ingredient. A small fan was placed over my face to lessen any tingly or burning sensation,” Christina said. “And even that was minimal.”
Elizabeth made a couple more passes with the topical chemical peel. She ensured Christina was comfortable by having the small fan rotating overhead.
“Elizabeth is so conscientious making certain I was comfortable,” Christina said. “The Break Time Peel lasted under an hour and before I left, Elizabeth applied sunscreen on my face and reminded me to always wear it when outdoors.”
A few days later, Christina has noticed a youthful skin boost. While her skin is visibly smoother, her facial canvas is brighter. And skin peeling is minimal.
“I absolutely love the results of the Break Time Peel,” Christina said. “This is something I am definitely going to do regularly!”
