With sun exposure, pollution, and stress, along with the normal aging process, our skin can become dull and lack that moist. Our skin’s cell turnover slows down, and dark spots and fine lines begin to appear. Age does not have to equal poor skin quality. Getting our skin to have a healthy glow is possible with the latest advancements in skin rejuvenation treatments. Collagen stimulating, skin tightening, and skin surface treatments such as IPL, laser resurfacing, and micro-needling can result in improved skin health. Find out more about how these treatments help you achieve skin.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a laser skin treatment that provides skin rejuvenation, lightens hyperpigmentation, and improves the appearance of vascular lesions and pigmented lesions.
Fractional laser resurfacing is the leading treatment for skin rejuvenation. It works by using a beam of light to penetrate deep layers of skin and stimulate collagen to rejuvenate and tighten skin, helping to reduce fine lines and uneven pigmentation. During the procedure, tiny beams of fractionated light are directed at problem areas so that only a fraction of the skin is exposed to heat and stimulation. The surrounding area remains unaffected and helps promote quicker healing time with less downtime compared to traditional treatments.
Micro-needling with radiofrequency, such as Morpheus 8, is another type of skin rejuvenation treatment that works to stimulate collagen production, tighten skin, address acne, improve skin texture, and remodel the face. During the procedure, a particular device with tiny needles is used to create small punctures in the skin while delivering energy to stimulate the tissue at different levels. This initiates a healing process that helps reduce fine lines, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, remodeling small pockets of fat, and other skin concerns.
Chemical peels are used to improve the skin and restore a healthy-looking complexion. Also known as chemexfoliation, it is a treatment technique that uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. This, along with consistent skin care and sun protection, reduces fine lines and improves texture, acne scarring, and uneven pigmentation.
Taking good care of your skin on a daily basis with a consistent skincare routine, eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and getting regular exercise are all critical components to achieving healthy skin. Combining these practices with the right treatments can help you look and feel your best.
