Overview: The Gloss peel is a superficial chemical peel designed to refresh stressed skin with a unique synthesis of cell turn-over enhancers and Vitamin A. The Gloss peel will help to restore your youthful glow with minimal effort by using pain-free TCA. The Gloss peel is applied during an office visit, and there is no pain and little-to-no irritation during the application.

The peel is complemented with a take-home product, Melanage 2 cream, a combination of tretinoin and hydroquinone, tailored to maximize the results of your treatment.

Expected results: The results will vary, but generally patients will see smoother skin texture, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots. Your skin will restore a polished, more youthful appearance. Each treatment can be performed no sooner than 6 months, no more than two treatments per year is recommended.

Preparations: One week before the treatment, we ask you to refrain from electrolysis, waxing, sunless tanning, spray tanning, or UV free tanning, depilatory creams, laser hair removal treatments, cosmetic facials, Botox, Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, retinols, alpha hydroxyl acids, beta hydroxyl acids, benzoyl peroxide, or any other exfoliating products that may be drying or irritating.

Post treatment instructions: It is imperative that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week. Best results will be obtained with regular daily use of such sunscreen. No strenuous exercise for the next 24-48 hours after the peel. Wait until the peeling is complete before having any other facial procedures including facials, microdermabrasion, laser treatments, laser hair removal, Botox, or injectable fillers.

What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

You people are superb. The doctor and the assistant understand what they are doing. The doctor really talks like a professional - she knows it for sure.

#12018-11-01

Yes, I liked Dr. Ringpfeil's attentive, friendly demeanor and the fact that she expained things well, making available every sort of treatment, but also making clear what was needed/recommended and what could/should be skipped in a sensible, conservative approach.

#22018-05-10

I appreciated that Dr. Ringpfeil took the time to thoroughly explain everything we spoke about. She did not simply provide a professional opinion, she provided her opinion and supplemented it with an explanation that made everything clear to me. I felt like I was listened to and interacted with, rather than just spoken at (which has often been my experience with other dermatologists). Thank you!

#32018-09-10

Everything was wonderful

I do not believe there is a need to improve.

don't see how you could improve anything

#82011-01-12 08:19:57

When making the initial appointment and then calling to try to get it moved up (our of fear that I had a melanoma), I didn't think that one of the booking person(s) was particularly helpful or reassuring.

Your rain spouts put water into the driveway to the back parking lot. As it gets colder, it will freeze and create a dangerous pathway for clients
