Your Skin Care will be performed in Dr. Robert Kessler's surgery center located in Corona Del Mar.
Customized treatment based on skin type using only Dr. Kessler’s Medical Grade Skincare.
A facial starts with a skin analysis to determine what skincare products should be used. This customized treatment will begin with cleansing the skin, followed by a form of exfoliation being either a pumpkin peel or microdermabrasion to help loosen debris in the pores. Extractions are then performed, followed by a mask for either combination-to-oily skin or normal-to-dry skin, then a facial massage follows with a steamed towel. To finish, based on skin type- the skin will be toned, hydrated, and eye cream will be applied.
(30 min, $150)
Exfoliation, pore cleansing and cell turnover.
Microdermabrasion gently sloughs away dead skin cells and helps to loosen debris in the pores. This will greatly help skincare products to easily penetrate the skin to get the full benefit and absorption of each skincare product more effectively. On average microdermabrasion can be done once a month.
Pumpkin Enzyme Peel
(30 Min, $75)
This natural enzyme peel has antioxidants, vitamins A and C with a nourishing formula that helps stimulate new cell growth that will provide a refreshed and youthful glow.
(Time varies, Cost varies)
Non-laser resurfacing device that improves wrinkles, scars/acne scars, stretch marks and large pores.
Microneedling procedures allow for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. Breaking down the ‘old foundation’ helping to create a new foundational structure of new smooth skin which triggers new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin. A minimum of three treatments are recommended, each one about four weeks apart for the best result. This is great for even the darkest to the lightest skin types.
