Our aestheticians perform the AFA Amino Acid Peel for patients who want their skin to be softer and smoother without downtime. This is the classic “lunchtime peel” which consists of a mild amino acid that smoothes the skin, improves fine lines, and removes aged, damaged skin without discomfort or downtime. The AFA peel is geared towards patients who do not exfoliate on a regular basis.
AFA Clay Peel
The Clay Peel is performed in two stages: first we coat the skin with a thin layer of bentonite clay, which deep cleans the pores. After five minutes we rinse off the clay and apply a thin layer of amino acid to exfoliate the surface of the skin and to heal existing blemishes. This peel is excellent for patients with acne breakouts and visible blackheads. It can also be performed on the back.
The Dermaglide Microdermabrasion system allows for a wide variety of treatment options, enabling us to address all skin types from the most sensitive, to thick, scarred skin. In addition to the traditional crystal method, we can also use the new Crystal-Free Technique to slough away the dead, dull outer layer of skin, leaving your skin smoother and refreshed. Results are best achieved through a series of about six consecutive microdermabrasion treatments, ranging no more than 7 to 10 days apart, although treatments can be tailored to fit your particular schedule. The Dermaglide Microdermabrasion system is environmentally friendly, as it utilizes baking soda crystals instead of the aluminum oxide crystals used with traditional machines.
The Blue Peel (TCA Peel)
The OBAGI® Blue Peel can restore tighter, smoother and younger looking skin regardless of age, color or skin type. Using TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid), the Obagi® Blue Peel enables the physician or aesthetician to control the peel process and its depth. These applications will lead to the removal of thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin. Layers of dead skin cells are exfoliated and replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface. Those who have blemish-prone skin, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, sun damage, or general poor skin quality will benefit the most. Patients can realize excellent results after just one Blue Peel. A six to eight week course of skin preconditioning on Obagi Nu-Derm should be completed prior to this peel.
Dr. Youn and our aestheticians can perform the Blue Peel in the comfort and privacy of our office, using a light oral sedative and topical anesthetics to numb the skin. The downtime is approximately 4-7 days, and there is usually very little discomfort during the healing process.
Shaping the eyebrow properly can produce a refreshed appearance to your eyes. Our aestheticians perform eyebrow waxing in order to create a pleasing and fashionable eyebrow appearance.

The LaserFACIAL is an advanced laser therapy to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in both men and women. This treatment affects the innermost layers of skin by stimulating new collagen production, which is the support structure for healthy skin. Fine lines, large pores, “orange peel” texture, rosacea, and overall ruddiness can all be improved by the LaserFACIAL. It is also a good treatment for rosacea. Best of all, the LaserFACIAL is painless and has no downtime!
Results are maximized by combining the LaserFACIAL with other treatments, such as medical grade skin care, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.
Laser Scar Treatments
YOUN Plastic Surgery offers laser treatments to decrease the redness of scars. In some cases, the thickness of scars is reduced as well. Dr. Youn can combine laser scar treatments with topical therapies or injections to improve the appearance of both old and new scars. Unfortunately, some scars, like keloids, can be resistant to treatment.
