Age-Defying Alternatives to Plastic Surgery - Dr. Fathy Clinic
Dr. Fathy Clinic offers comprehensive cosmetic surgery procedures, as well as a number of services to help you look your best without the need for surgery. Our licensed aesthetician performs glycolic skin peels, the Obagi® Blue Peel, and microdermabrasion treatments to give your skin a glowing, healthy radiance. Depending on your goals, the procedures can be performed by themselves or in conjunction with surgical options life facelifts, breast augmentation, and body contouring.
A glycolic acid peel is a light chemical treatment that is an effective alternative for patients who want to avoid the discomfort and recovery period associated with stronger chemical peels. The glycolic acid penetrates the skin and exfoliates dead or damaged cells, creating a vibrant, smooth, and youthful appearance. Additionally, the peel can help stimulate collagen production so your skin will be firmer and fine lines will be less apparent. Treatment at our Dr. Fathy Clinic typically takes less than an hour, and the improvement in your skin will be immediately noticeable. However, glycolic peels often require multiple treatments to maximize and maintain results.

Obagi® Blue Peel
The Obagi® skin care system can transform your skin by improving the appearance of blemishes, age spots, wrinkles, and scars. Used all over the world, Obagi® products work at the cellular level to create a dramatic difference in skin tone and texture. One of the most popular products in the Obagi® line is the Blue Peel, a chemical peel that uses the active ingredient Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) with a patented blue base to rejuvenate your skin. This treatment can be tailored to fit the requirements of your specific skin type, exfoliating layers of dead skin cells to reveal the healthy cells beneath. Performed at Dr. Fathy Clinic, the Obagi® Blue Peel procedure is usually completed in under an hour. Your skin should begin to peel in two to three days following the procedure and be completely healed in about seven to 10 days.

Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing leaves your skin softer and smoother, giving you a fresh, healthy glow. It can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, age spots, acne scars, and other imperfections. The treatment is effective on all skin types and works by gently abrading the skin with aluminum oxide crystals, stimulating cell turnover and collagen production. However, multiple treatments are required to reach and maintain optimum results. Microdermabrasion can be performed in your doctor’s office in under an hour, and there are virtually no side effects. Normal activities can be resumed immediately following a microdermabrasion treatment at Dr. Fathy Clinic.
Restoring the healthy, youthful appearance of your skin can help you look your best and feel more confident. To learn more about the advanced skin care options offered at our Dr. Fathy Clinic, or to schedule a consultation, please contact our offices today.
