Do you want to turn back time to when your skin was in its youthful, gorgeous state? Try skin resurfacing treatments that are non-surgical and may allow you to return to your daily routine immediately. These treatments will remove damaged skin layers of skin to reveal healthier skin.
Unfortunately, the environment, age, and injury are the culprits when you begin to see wrinkles, scars, age spots and discoloration. But skin resurfacing will gracefully improve your skin’s aesthetic beauty. The top recommended treatments are laser skin resurfacing, chemicals peels, microdermabrasion, and dermabrasion.
Lasers will improve your skin’s tone and texture with beams of light energy.
Decrease wrinkles and fine lines
Reduce discoloration (brown spots & redness)
Eliminate scars & acne
Remove body hair
Ablative lasers aid in skin cell regeneration by removing outer layers of skin. Your skin type and your desired results will depend on what wavelength of light your skin care professional will use. Fractioned lasers are more commons because they can target specific areas to reach deeper layers safely.
No-ablative lasers don’t penetrate layers of the skin, they heat up the skin causing it to increase collagen growth for natural firmness and toning. They aren’t as immediate as ablative lasers, but they do maintain your new youthful skin.
A chemical peel will remove the layers of skin being treated to let your fresher layer appear.
Decrease age spots & discoloration
Treat fine lines & wrinkles
Reduce acne scars & less severe scars
Improve skin tone & complexion
Treat precancerous & keratosis growths
The type of peel (light, medium, or deep) your receive is predicated on how many layers of skin will be removed. Lighter peels will only affect the epidermis and will ultilize a mild chemical solution like gycolic acid or fruit enzymes. A trained aesthetician can perform them if a cosmetic surgeon is supervising them.
A deeper peel will reach the dermis and will treat aging, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars. There may be anesthesia to keep you comfortable and there you will take a couple days to heal.
During microdermabrasion your skin is exfoliated with a fine tipped tool or a mist. Microdermabrasion is safe on all types of skin with little to no side effects. You will see improvements in lines & wrinkles, your skin’s tone, age spots, and mild acne scars.
A cosmetic surgeon will use a rotating tool or blade to remove skin layer by layer. This treatment isn’t recommended for every skin type because it can alter skin pigmentation. It will improve fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and your complexion.
Consult a cosmetic surgeon to find the right skin resurfacing treatment for your skin to achieve your desired results.
