Beta Lift® Peel
Got 5 minutes for more vibrant skin?? At Johns Creek Dermatology we are pleased to offer a new dermatologic procedure created by the inventor of Retin-A® for revitalizing your skin and rejuvenating your appearance. The ß-LIFTx® (BETA-LIFTx®), beta hydroxyacid peel results in healthier, more youthful, smoother and tighter looking skin. It evens skin tone, improves texture, and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and also improves the appearance of acne, discoloration and superficial scars. Often referred to as a “Smart Peel”, the formulation diffuses salicylic acid as microcrystals, termed microsponge technology, which have the ability to seek out even the tiniest lines and imperfections, and target exactly areas that need improvement.
ß-LIFTx® has the unique ability to automatically stop after it has delivered all of its renewing stimulus, unlike traditional chemical peels, rendering the ß-LIFTx® extremely safe. A single ß-LIFTx® procedure is also more effective in a short amount of time than a series of superficial chemical peels. The ß-LIFTx® procedure works to remove dead, dull skin cells from the surface of your face, resulting in exposure of young, healthy skin. It is especially effective on oily, acne prone skin and superficial scars because of its ability to penetrate the pores.
The ß-LIFTx® formula is applied after thoroughly cleansing your face. A filmy mask will appear after a few minutes, during which time some tingling and slight discomfort is expected, which dissipates after about 3 minutes. The mask is then washed off and moisturizer is applied to hydrate and protect the skin. There is no downtime with the ß-LIFTx®. Following the procedure, your skin may look a little reddened for a few days and there may be some level of flaking, from almost invisible to noticeable, depending on your skin type and other factors. Moisturizer is intended to minimize the flaking effect. We will provide you with directions for proper post-peel cleansing and skin care, which includes: use of sunscreen, daily cleansing and moisturizing daily, and avoidance of irritating facial products. Dr. Timani will discuss with you how often you should have ß-LIFTx® procedures to maintain your rejuvenated skin.
