Medical Skincare Clinic

Medical Skincare is skincare treatment designed to correct problematic skin and a variety of skin disorders.

Skin disorders range from acne to hyperpigmentation and signs of aging. Medical Skincare differs from traditional facials because it is therapeutic, as opposed to being aesthetic. We utilize pharmaceutical medications in combination with mechanical procedures that are only available in physicians’ offices.

UCI Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer Medical Skincare services in our Manchester Pavilion Suite. Consultation and treatments are provided by Mary Ann Cardoza, our licensed aesthetician, using the BioMedic skincare product line, available only through physician offices. Services include the MicroPeel and MicroPeel Plus. Home facial products are also available for purchase.

Treatments We Offer

All of our aesthetic treatments are designed to give visible results. They will effectively help to reduce the depth of surface lines, smooth rough skin texture, help fade brown spots and assist in clearing acne and blemished skin. The naturally-occurring AHAs (fruit acids) in the treatments will loosen the dead cells from the skin’s surface. This allows the healthier skin cells to come through, giving a smoother texture to your skin and a glowing, radiant appearance. There is minimal or no downtime involved in Medical Skincare treatments.

We offer the following treatments:

  • Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical Peels
  • Anti-Aging Treatments
  • Acne/Rosacea Treatments
  • Pigment Control Treatments
  • Pumpkin Peel Beta-C Mask Treatments
  • TCA Peel for Dramatic Wrinkling, Sun Damage, or Acne

We also offer a full line of take-home skincare products and can make personalized recommendations to help you find the products right for you.
