With the end of summer approaching, you may be noticing that all that extra time in the sun has done a number on your skin. There are two popular treatments in Brandon that can be used in order to get your skin back in tip-top shape for the fall months: microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Read on to learn more about these treatments and how they work.


Microdermabrasion is a great option for treating rough, discolored, and sun damaged skin. The treatment uses a fine diamond wand that smooth and resurfaces the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen in the skin for a smooth and glowing complexion. This process is painless and nonsurgical, so there is no downtime associated.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a popular option for rejuvenating the skin. There are a variety of types to choose from, including light, medium, and deep peels. At Brandon Plastic Surgery, we offer Glycolic acid peels (light peels), TCA peels (medium peels), and PHENOL peels (deep peels). These treatments work by removing the topmost layer of damaged and dull skin to reveal the healthy, glowing skin underneath. This process also stimulates collagen production in the skin for a healthier complexion. Downtime depends on the level of your peel; the deeper the peel, the more downtime required.

Both of these treatment options are great for renewing the skin, combating sun damage and smoothing the complexion. If you are looking to renew your skin for fall, contact Brandon Plastic Surgery today to schedule your consultation.
