A manual exfoliative technique where a sterile surgical blade is passed flat across the skin at a 45 degree angle. This removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, reduces the visibility of acne scarring, hyperpigmented areas, superficial wrinkling, and extraneous vellous hairs. The process is painless, controllable, and very effective. Dermaplaning is suitable for even ethnic and couperose (capillary prone) skin. If appropriate, the procedure can be followed with a peel or enzyme treatment at no additional charge. The Dermaplane procedure includes a PSG Signature Skin Treatment.

Ranging from 20% to 70%, a Glycolic Acid peel will produce a light to medium peel. It requires no down time. We recommend a series of treatments gradually increasing in strength as the skin improves and becomes more resilient. Glycolic Acid peels stimulate collagen synthesis, address aging skin, adult acne, hyperpigmentation and fine lines. Can be combined with a Dermaplane procedure at no additional cost if the skin condition warrants it. Usually recommended once a month, but can be done as often as once weekly to achieve quicker results.

Clinical Peels are independent procedures, and are not combined with any other facial treatment on the same day. Clinical peels are more aggressive and require varying amounts of healing time. We will recommend an appropriate peel, plan the healing/recovery process and instruct you on the after care. These peels deliver dramatic results in a short amount of time. They are usually prescribed after a series of Glycolic and/or Dermaplane Skin Treatments have been completed. Each Clinical Peel procedure requires a 45 min appointment.
A proprietary blend of 8 different acids: Salicylic Acid, Resorcinol, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Pyruvic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Mandelic Acid and Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate. The PSG Synergy Peel comes in three formulations: Universal, Intermediate, and Advanced. The 5 step procedure yields excellent results with little to no discomfort. The first and second day are usually unremarkable. On the 3rd day freckles and pigmentation will darken and the surface will look dry. Peeling will commence for 2 to 5 days at this point, starting in the center of the face and working outward. The texture of the skin improves markedly, as will pigmentation irregularities, pore size, acne scarring and fine lines. Collagen synthesis is activated to counteract the aging progression. Usually recommended every 2-4 months, but can be done monthly for awhile to achieve a quicker result.
This medium depth peel is more aggressive, but superior at refining the surface of the skin. Acne scarring, deeper wrinkles, larger pores and keloids all have the potential to improve with TCA peels. Various strengths, from 10 â€“ 35% are used to create a uniform result. A TCA peel will be pink/red for the first few days, then the skin will darken and peel profusely for approximately 7-10 days. Can be repeated up to 4x per year.
Salicylic Acid is more surface oriented, making it best for acneic skin and non-inflammatory cystic acne. Redness and peeling for a couple of days may be evident depending upon the percentage selected, but the irritation is generally brief. Usually suggested on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. The normal protocol is to start with one or more PSG Signature Skin Treatments geared toward acne. The first visit will be a PSG Signature Skin Treatment, and the Salicylic Peels will be set up on alternate visits.
