They can be so confusing...It is not for the lack of products... there are literally THOUSANDS to choose from...what we lack is the ABILITY to know what PRODUCT is needed to address a SPECIFIC issue.
This is where Tammy's knowledge, Education and Years of Experience can help you choose the 'most appropriate treatment' option for your skin care needs. Her passion is to partner with you in the journey to enhance the appearance and overall health of your skin.
Recently a patient in her early 50's was interested in a skin care treatment that would help to improve her sun damaged skin. Her son was getting married and she wanted to get rid of some hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) and rejuvenate the overall appearance of her skin. After a skin analysis and a patch test, we chose the Jessner Peel, a firm and lift treatment as well as a Vitamin C brightening Mask. . The treatments were performed within a time frame of about 2 to 3 months.
The following is what she said...
I highly recommend Advanced Dermagraphics!! I have used it many times for facials and never have I looked better!!! Among several different procedures, I have also had a chemical peel (my first) and loved the results. At 55 I am fighting aging as much as I can, so I was very happy to find Tammy! I have referred several different people to her, some teenagers for acne treatment, and have heard wonderful reports from them. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do what she has for me!!!!

Another patient Tammy had performed a permanent cosmetic procedure on years before had a 50th reunion to attend and she wanted a treatment that would rejuvenate and give her skin a healthy radiant glow. I recommended the Vitamin C brightening mask.
The following is what she said...
My friend Lynn recommended Advanced Dermagraphics to me about 3 years ago. At that time, I had permanent eyebrows done. Recently I had a touch up and discovered that Tammy is also a skin care specialist.
My husband and I were attending his 50th high school reunion. I wanted to look my best and Tammy advised me to have a face brightening procedure. The results were great! I looked like I had just awoken from a long and restful sleep. The process reminded me of facials I had received while living in Germany, but several steps above an ordinary facial because the facials were superficial. Skin care treatments go deeper and the fresher look lasts longer.
I highly encourage you to contact Tammy and get a professional evaluation. You will look and feel better right away.

Offering comprehensive, collection-based skin care with a problem/solution focus, these formulas deliver real life results in a practical and accessible way.
We also offer several types of Chemical peels which utilize various strengths and types of acids to exfoliate the skin and normalize the surface texture and color. Peels are effective treatments in improving and minimizing hyper-pigmentation (brown spots), fine lines, enlarged pores, acne breakouts and sun damaged skin. We offer professional/medical grade peels for customized treatment options.
A dynamic pancreatic enzyme,Zyme Peel is a gentle papain, bromelain, and zinc enzyme powder that, when mixed with activator and steamed, softens sebum and dissolves keratin buildup. It eliminates dead cells, digests surface debris, removing excess dry, flaky skin without irritating the epidermal tissue and prepares the skin for extractions. Great for patients that have dry/sensitive skin.
A Lactic Acid Peel is generally the safest exfoliation procedure for sensitive skin because it is less drying and irritating. It is largely known for its ability to increase the water -holding capacity of the top layer of the skin. Lactic acid is in many over the counter lotions and helps combat dry skin. Because of its hydrating benefits, Lactic acid will give the patient the smoothing needed without the dryness that can occur with other peel procedures.
The Vitamin A micro Peel is a combination of pure retinol and lactic acid that will help tone, exfoliate, condition, and improve the complexion. This clinical facial is an excellent treatment for photo-damaged or aging skin where increased cell turnover and stimulation of collagen production is needed. The skin may peel lightly for up to a week.
As the dead outer-most epidermal cells are removed, the skin can regain a more "freshened" look. Glycolic acid is made from natural fruit acids (alpha hydroxyl acids or AHAs) that rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old, sun-damaged skin. An ideal treatment for people who are unable to take time off work for a deeper peel. This peel is a great bi-weekly treatment. Best results seen with at least 3-6 treatments.
The Jessner Peel is a superior treatment that is designed to exfoliate the top layers of the epidermis. It is the most aggressive peel that we offer. A Jessner peel is a combination of salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol that can be used to lighten hyper-pigmentation and treat aged, sun damaged skin. This peel results in a regenerating effect and gives patients a smoothing and retexturing not typically achieved with AHA and BHA fruit acid peels. There is mild to severe peeling associated with this treatment from 3-7 days ... the results are worth it!
This creamy,cooling therapeutic mask absorbs excess sebum, reduces enlarged pores, and calms down inflamed acne. It contains 10% sulfur that reduces inflammation associated with acne as it dissolves the skin's surface layer of dead cells.
