Facial Treatments & Peels

Non-Surgical Facial Treatments in Tampa

With age comes many beautiful things—wisdom, experience, grace and so much more. However, the effects that aging can have on one’s appearance are a hard thing to love. Looking in the mirror and seeing a face covered in wrinkles, age spots and discoloration can have a negative effect on your self-confidence, affecting the way you may act around others.

If you are wanting to restore a more youthful appearance, but aren’t quite ready for surgery, we offer the following non-surgical facial treatments in Tampa. Our certified team of specialists and aestheticians can help you to achieve the radiant, younger-looking skin you desire.

Chemical Peels | Microdermabrasion

Chemical Peels

If dark spots, sun damage, and dull skin are your biggest issue, one of our professionally administered chemical peels can help bring out the natural beauty to the surface of your skin. We can treat a variety of common skin concerns with a chemical peel, including:

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Moderate acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven pigmentation

We use PCA SKIN and SkinMedica for many of our chemical peels. We avoid using Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) peels, which are often thought of as very aggressive and producing substantial discomfort. PCA Professional™ TCA peels are very different from the standard and can provide you with beautiful results and minimal discomfort.

The following chemical peels can be performed at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery and Laser Center:

Enhanced Jessner’s Treatments

Great for acne prone skin, this light-to-medium depth peel is effective at repairing or reducing breakouts and controlling oil, as well as improving the appearance of facial lines to achieve a smoother complexion and texture.

Illuminize Peel™

SkinMedica’s Illuminize Peel is great for all types of skin, helping to control sun damage and prevent signs of aging such as poor texture or dark spots. The Illuminize Peel is a superficial peel that uses a combination of alpha-hydroxy acids and traditional peeling agents for maximum benefits and minimal irritation.

Salicylic Acid Treatments

This type of chemical peel uses an oxygenating and detoxing process to reduce pollutants and toxins in the skin, achieving a brighter, more radiant complexion. Salicylic acid peels are also good for clearing follicle blockage to prevent breakouts.

Vitalize Peel®

The Vitalize Peel is another great choice from SkinMedica that we provide for patients in Tampa. This very superficial peel is best for treating mild to moderate skin flaws such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage or poor texture. There is no downtime following this peel, and you will see noticeable results after just a single treatment.


If you’re looking for a quick way to achieve beautiful skin without any downtime, a microdermabrasion is a great non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment and is even nicknamed the “lunchtime peel.” A microdermabrasion treatment is designed to safely remove old or dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, revealing the brighter, more youthful layer below.

Microdermabrasion uses crystals to essentially brush the surface of your skin, gently removing the outer layer. It works effectively for all different skin types and colors.

Microdermabrasion helps to improve the appearance of common skin concerns such as:

  • Dull skin
  • Brown spots
  • Age spots

Less aggressive than dermabrasion, this treatment requires no numbing medicine and you can get back to your normal routine immediately.
