VI PEEL

VI Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that reduces the appearance of skin damage, aging skin, pore size, softens lines and wrinkles, and clears acne skin conditions. On top of all of these benefits, the VI Peel stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for firmer, more youthful-looking skin. 

 

VI Peel is for men and women who desire to have younger-looking, healthier skin will benefit from this peel. VI Peel customized facials are available for:

  • Aging skin

  • Acne-prone skin

  • Acne scars and skin damage

  • Sunspots and pigmentation (brown spots)

The VI Peel will improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. It also reduces age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation, and Melasma. 

 

During the procedure, the chemical solution will be applied to your skin using a soft brush or applicator. Prior to the treatment, your Faces Medspa skin expert will decide the exposure and level of treatment required to achieve your desired results. The procedure can last 15 minutes to an hour depending on your unique needs. 

SKINCEUTICALS SMART TCA PEEL

Smart TCA Peel significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, laxity, and stubborn discoloration. Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) is known as the gold-standard ingredient in chemical peeling – as it’s a tried-and-tested acid used for decades by doctors. Ideal for all skin types and most skin tones, the Smart TCA Peel features a blend of 15%  Trichloroacetic Acid with 3% Glycolic Acid. The Smart TCA Peel in-office treatment at Faces Medspa in Dubuque features a patented post-peel Restorative Masque to soothe and reduce skin temperature immediately following peel application.

  • What do neuromodulators do?
    Neuromodulators (including Botox and Dysport) relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. These treatments combat forehead lines, glabella lines ("11's" between the brows), crows feet (around the eyes), smile lines, neck lines, and other wrinkles associated with aging. They can also be used to help sculpt and lift facial features including for a nonsurgical brow lift and a nonsurgical neck lift.
  • What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?
    While BOTOX and Dysport both use the same substance (botulinum toxin A) and are based on the same mechanism of action, the size of the molecules in the injections are significantly different. Dysport contains smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A than BOTOX. - Dysport can spread through your cells more easily - Dysport may begin working slightly faster than BOTOX - Results from Dysport and Botox last for a similar amount of time
  • How many units of Botox will I need? How many units of Dysport will I need?
    The amount of units needed can differ from person to person depending upon your desired outcome, the area of concern to be treated, the strength of the muscles in the area, and whether the treatment is for prevention or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles and their severity.
  • When will I see results from Botox and Dysport?
    Most patients can expect to notice early results of Dysport between two to five days following treatment, while results from Botox may take seven to fourteen days. The degree of muscle relation can continue to evolve for about two weeks and the results last for three to four months. The longer the BOTOX treatments have been routinely performed, the more relaxed the facial wrinkles will appear over time. Results of Dysport are similar, but often with a slightly quicker onset of action.
  • How long does Botox last? How long does Dysport last?
    Results may vary based upon the dose given, as well as on muscle strength of the area and metabolism, as our bodies metabolize (or break down) the Neuromodulators over time. Treatment to maintain your results are recommend every three to four months. Using medical grade skin care products at home as part of a daily skin care regime can help to maintain your results and improve the appearance and quality of your skin.
  • Does Botox and Dysport hurt?
    Many of us are not big fans of shots, especially needles in general. However, Neuromodulators are generally quickly injected with a minimal amount of discomfort, using the smallest needle available. Many of our patients barely notice the injections.
  • Who are good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport?
    BOTOX and Dysport have been proven safe and effective for treatment of a wide variety of patient and wrinkle types, however, the earlier the treatment is started, the more favorable the results can be. Some patients are not candidates for this type of treatment and include those diagnosed with neurological conditions or disorders affecting muscle movement, history of allergy to the botulinum toxin product, or those with unrealistic expectations from the treatment. Patients who are pregnant or nursing are discouraged from undergoing treatment.

BBL® TREATMENT

BBL (Broadband Light) is a no-downtime, non-ablative procedure that utilizes pulsed broadband light and photo-thermal energy to reduce the visible signs of aging.

BOTOX® AND DYSPORT®

Neurotoxins (BOTOX®, Dysport®) are typically used to relax the muscles that produce strong facial expressions around the eyes, forehead, and in between the brows, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles.
