As we age, skin irregularities start to become a bit more regular. Growing older, we start to notice more fine lines among other age lines. In time, we also accumulate exposure and with it, damage from the sun such as pigmentation and freckling. Are you looking for a way to improve your skin without surgery?

At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Greg Chernoff and his skincare professionals offer safe and effective peels and facial resurfacing with Dermaplane. Often these two non-surgical treatments are combined to improve the appearance of the skin so you can Look your Natural Best.

Located in Santa Rosa, California, the Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery medical staff and certified aestheticians deliver unique and individualized facial peels and treatment combinations to best enhance our patient’s natural features.

What is a Peel?

Peels can help enhance the look of pigmentation, freckling, fine lines, light-to-moderate sun damage, scarring, acne, and large pores. Our specially trained staff and certified aestheticians offer a variety of distinctive peels that are based on how deep the specific formula penetrates the skin.

The peels we offer are categorized as follows:

  • Corrective Peel
  • Sensitive Skin Peel
  • Pigment Balancing Peel

Each peel formula has different ingredients that will determine on how deeply each is absorbed into the skin. Some other factors that dictate the solutions penetration include the time before the solution neutralizes and the number of layers that are applied to the surface of the skin.

A personalized solution for the individual patient is applied to their skin. This solution penetrates deep into the dermal layer of the skin and sometime over the next 14 days, the outermost layer of the skin may begin to peel off.* This process speeds up the skin’s natural cell turnover so that healthier, more lustrous-looking skin can begin to rise up.

Our aestheticians can determine which peel can best match your type of skin and aesthetic goals.

What is Dermaplane

Dermaplane is a safe, non-invasive, manual method of facial skin exfoliation. It is effective at removing the “peach fuzz” (vellous facial hairs) which can cause clogged pores and acne. Most often, this treatment is performed with facials and peels. Combining Dermaplaning with a peel or other facial treatments can help to prepare the skin and enhance the absorption rate of topical treatments.

The Dermaplane system is used to exfoliate the skin, revealing healthier looking skin. Regular Dermaplane treatments combined with non-surgical skincare treatments can help restore and renew your face and can be used on all skin types!

When considering non-surgical skincare treatments, finding the right aesthetic doctor can mean the difference between great results and less than optimal results. Board certification, advanced training and skills, along with years of experience are important factors to consider when selecting your cosmetic physician.

Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
