Skin Rejuvenation Techniques

Look Younger and More Beautiful with Skin Rejuvenation

As we age our skin can begin to sag, become rough, discolored and simply less beautiful. Skin rejuvenation procedures can bring back that youthful appearance, making your skin, smoother, clearer and tighter again.

Skin Rejuvenation can be achieved by the use of a number of non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Not everyone will need each of these techniques. A consultation with one of our doctors will give you guidance and help to discover which of these is right for your skin.

Ultherapy

If you are concerned about wrinkles, slack skin or “chicken neck”, Ultherapy could be perfect for you. This exciting, non-invasive cosmetic procedure uses ultrasound technology to send sound waves deep into the tissue to tighten and lift the muscles and skin on your face and neck. Ultherapy is done quickly, sometimes in as little as 30 minutes; needs no anesthesia; leaves no scarring and needs no recovery time.

Fraxel Laser Treatment

As we get older we begin to see brown spots or other discolorations appearing on the backs of our hands, our arms and face. These blemishes are called lentigines and are a natural part of aging. Fraxel laser treatment works by delivering a laser beam that is divided into thousands of tiny, but deep columns of treatment into the top two layers of your skin. The treatment leaves your skin even in color and glowing. So, for wrinkles, acne, scarring or sagging skin your dermatologist may recommend Fraxel Laser Treatment.

Usually three to five treatments one month apart will complete the process. Most patients will notice an improvement after the first treatment. *

Wrinkle Reduction with Thermage

Thermage is a radio-frequency skin tightening procedure. Thermage treatment is non-invasive. The doctor uses a hand-held device to direct radio-frequency waves at the collagen beneath the surface layers of the skin. These waves warm and tighten the collagen reducing wrinkles, producing tighter skin, renewing contours, and creating healthier collagen and better skin tone. The procedure is fast and requires no surgical incisions or anesthesia.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Therapy

A relative of the laser is Intense Pulse Light (IPL) therapy. Sometimes your dermatologist will recommend IPL for the removal of brown spots or background redness on your skin. This device can be tuned to different wavelengths or ranges of wavelengths to properly remove your specific brown spots and can be adjusted for your natural skin color. Treatment involves no surgery or anesthesia and involves little or no discomfort.

The procedure takes as little as 30 minutes and requires only one to two treatments.

Microdermabrasion Treatment

Not as aggressive as dermabrasion, microdermabrasion uses minimally abrasive instruments to rejuvenate the skin by removing the uneven outer layer (epidermis). This procedure is used to treat sun damage, stretch marks, light scarring, and discoloration. Microdermabrasion also helps to thicken your collagen, giving you a taut, smooth, younger-looking appearance.

Microdermabrasion is done without the need for surgery or anesthesia, and no recovery time is needed after completing the procedure. You’re ready to go.
