Facial Treatments | Shumway Cosmetic Surgery in La Jolla

Our enviable Southern California climate and the conditions of modern living constantly subject the delicate surface of your skin to harm. When left untreated, the effects of sun exposure, daily stress, poor eating habits, the aging process, hormones, and air pollution can contribute to:

  • A dull complexion
  • Dry skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • A worn, tired look


The good news is that regular facial treatments can help keep your skin healthy and radiant. At Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, our professional aestheticians will provide you with targeted treatments to help counteract the damaging effects that daily living has on your skin. Take a look below at our options for facial treatments that will improve your skin’s tone and texture and help you retain your youthful glow.

Medical Grade Facials

Our spa facials are performed in private rooms designed to create a relaxing and meditative experience. During your facial treatment, our professional aesthetician will cleanse and exfoliate your skin with high quality products chosen specifically to address the needs of your skin. You’ll also receive a gentle massage to aid in the relaxation of your facial muscles and promote lymphatic drainage, which flushes out toxins and stimulates blood circulation. Additionally, the aesthetician will take time to educate you about your skin type, how to best protect it against damage, and which products are best for ensuring the long-term health of your skin.


You’ll love the way your skin looks and feels after your facial. You’ll also notice that the removal of debris and dead cells makes your skin care products more effective because they’re able to penetrate more deeply. And as a bonus, regular treatments with our professional aesthetician can help you save money on more expensive procedures designed to correct and treat irreversible damage to the skin that was not caught early on.

Chemical Peels: MicroPeel® and MicroPeel® Plus

Chemical peels are one of the most popular non-surgical options that can radically improve and restore the appearance of your skin. A chemical peel is an exfoliation procedure in which a customized acid solution is applied to the skin to improve skin texture and correct various skin conditions. Chemical peels can be used to treat the skin on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. They work to dramatically boost your skin’s appearance by:

  • Diminishing discoloration
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightening dullness and smoothing uneven skin tone
  • Minimizing and tightening large pores
  • Stimulating the production of collagen for firmer skin

At Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, we offer MicroPeel®, a superficial chemical peel that uses an alpha hydroxy acid solution and requires no downtime. In fact, MicroPeel® is often referred to as the “lunch-break peel.” For more dramatic corrections and deeper skin issues, we also offer MicroPeel® Plus, which is available in two concentrations of salicylic acid and will be customized to your skin type and goals.

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Shumway to determine which 3 step peel by Zen Obagi peel is right for you.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing is the cutting edge of non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment performed by Dr. Shumway himself. CO2 laser treatments utilize concentrated light beams to effectively reduce:

  • Skin pigmentation irregularities and blemishes
  • Severe textural changes from sun damage, acne scarring, and surgery or injury scars
  • Wrinkle lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead

The CO2 laser technology allows Dr. Shumway to precisely remove the outer layers of dead, dry, and damaged skin. Treatments with the CO2 laser require IV sedation for full face resurfacing. In addition to the immediate results, CO2 laser resurfacing also stimulates collagen growth beneath the skin, so in the months following your treatment, you’ll continue to see improvement in the youthfulness and radiance of your skin.
