With more than 25 years of experience, licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri administers skin-texture enhancing laser peels with a nonablative YAG laser by Radiancy. Each laser peel allows a new layer of skin cells, encouraging epidermises to tauten. The fresh collagen produced by the new skin helps lead to a firmer-looking face and better resonance when doing animal-sound impressions, and further benefits may include a more even skin tone as well as reduced appearance of scars, pigmentation, skin tags, and stretch marks. Dubbed by Skin Perfect as "the ultimate weekend peel" because the 30- to 40-minute treatment time lets patients get back to talking-dog-movie marathons with only missing the opening credits.
Skin Perfect's staff recommend two weeks between sessions, and further advise that though laser peels work on all skin types, darker skin types may experience more irritation and require a longer recovery time between sessions.
Although results are noticeable after the first treatment, five treatments are recommended to receive the full benefit.
Licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri performs each facial treatment at Skin Perfect, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as she treats acne and wrinkles during services that emphasize clinical approaches to skincare. Among her weapons of choice are lasers—which she uses to reduce scar tissue and remove hair and tattoos—and exfoliation tools such as microdermabrasion wands and chemical-peel solutions. To keep up their progress, clients can take home products from SkinCeuticals and Cell Renewal Systems or purchase one of the shop’s own line of mini facial steamers, which sterilize and clean the face while discreetly opening envelopes within a 50-yard radius.
