Skin Care Options in San Francisco, CA
When it comes to the right care for your skin, you may be confused by all the choices out there. Do you nourish or repair? Do you restore or rejuvenate? It can be a maze of options, which is why board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock is available to help residents of San Francisco and the Bay Area choose the right skin care regimen for their skin type.
What Are My Skin Care Options?
You have a variety of choices for skin care. During your free consultation with Dr. Aycock, you will learn more about your specific skin type and how to treat it. Options may include laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, or types of plastic surgery that lift and tighten the specific area.
Your skin may also benefit from microdermabrasion, an exfoliating technique that helps remove dead skin and renew the skin layer underneath. For more complex problem areas, chemical peels (also known as chemosurgery) can remove tired, sagging skin, revealing tighter, more youthful skin layers underneath.
Want something more nourishing on the surface? Dr. Aycock offers a variety of facial treatments from exfoliation to luxurious European-style facials that include specific pressure points on the face, neck, and shoulders to stimulate circulation and improve skin’s natural elasticity.
During many skin care treatments, a solution of naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acid is applied to help tone and improve skin’s moisture retention and give your face that healthy glow. More complex skin treatments include laser treatments, which are used to treat spider veins, unwanted hair, and hyperpigmentation.
Benefits of Proper Skin Care*
Good skin care is essential to overall beauty and health and can give you the following benefits:
- Cleaner, more improved skin texture with fewer breakouts or less acne scarring.
- Younger-looking skin that minimizes wrinkles and depressions.
- Softer, smoother, evenly toned, totally touchable skin you’ll be proud to show off.
Chemical peels have proven successful in restoring wrinkled, sun-damaged, and blemished skin and may be applied to the entire face or specific areas such as the mouth or forehead.
We offer a variety of chemical peels for the face, chest, or hands:
A Jessner Peel is excellent for exfoliation and improvement of overall appearance of the skin.
Pumpkin Enzyme Peel
The Pumpkin Enzyme Peel is beneficial for discoloration and age spots.
Vitalize Peel helps fight the effects of time, sun damage and environmental assaults.
The PCA Peel will even skin tone and provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker, and more resilient skin types. It is effective on extremely sun-damaged and thickened skin.
We offer a number of wonderful facial treatments for a variety of skin problems:

Preparing for Proper Skin Care
Before your skin care treatment at either our San Francisco or Bay Area office, you should gently cleanse your skin and not apply any kind of lotion or perfume. Depending on the procedure being performed, you may be asked to apply a specific solution to the skin (such as in the case of chemical peels) to make the removal of the top layer of skin more uniform. Full instructions will be given to you before your treatment regimen begins.
Skin Care Recovery*
Your recovery will depend on the procedure being done and your skin’s natural ability to heal. For example, getting a facial or injectable dermal filler takes a short time and you can return to your normal activities right away. More complex or involved procedures such as implants or lifts may take a week or more to recover. You will receive full recovery details plus answers to your questions during your free consultation with Dr. Aycock.
How Much Do Skin Care Options Cost?
The cost of skin care treatments in San Francisco varies depending on the type of treatment and the area being treated. Dr. Aycock provides convenient financing options, including CareCredit®; to help cover the cost of your treatment, and you may be approved in as little as an hour. Visa®, MasterCard®, and Discover® are also accepted, and you’ll enjoy a FREE CONSULTATION on your first visit to our office.
Are Skin Care Treatments Right for Me?*
The most important points to keep in mind if you’re considering a skin treatment is that no two treatments are alike and no two results are the same.
