Chemical Peels

If you are looking for full skin exfoliation and rejuvenation, a chemical peel might be the right choice for you. These solutions remove outer skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath. Formulations can be adjusted in terms of active ingredients and depth to address a variety of skin issues. Deeper peels require more recovery time, but also feature more dramatic results.


Microdermabrasion is another method of light exfoliation that leaves skin looking and feeling refreshed and more vibrant. This procedure uses a special tool to remove outer skin cells, without discomfort, downtime or damage to the skin. Microdermabrasion is often recommended to first-time patients at Aesthetic Arts Institute as a comfortable procedure that offers positive results.


For a deeper exfoliation experience, dermabrasion is also available at Aesthetic Arts Institute. This procedure works deeper beneath the skin’s surface, reducing the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation or shallow scarring. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and most patients need about 2-3 weeks to heal fully. However, results will be dramatic and last many years.

Scar Revision

If residual scarring is getting in the way of your vibrant appearance, Aesthetic Arts Institute offers help for that as well. There are a variety of scar revision options, including dermal fillers, skin resurfacing treatments and incision closure techniques. No matter what type of scarring you have, we can provide effective treatment to minimize the appearance and give you a smoother, clearer complexion.

This is the time of year when you want to look your best for all of the upcoming holiday festivities. At Aesthetic Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery, we can help you select the treatment that will provide you with the best possible results, based on your specific needs.
