The specific types of skin rejuvenation that will best address your concerns are determined after a consultation with your clinician. Most skin rejuvenation treatments require a series of treatments and a multi-modality approach often results in achieving excellent results. Most importantly, the person must be committed to protecting his or her skin going forward so that the results achieved will be longer lasting after the skin rejuvenation treatment has been carried out.
The best results for skin rejuvenation are achieved when all causes of aging are addressed:
You need to firstly address your lifestyle before staring on a course of laser skin rejuvenation sessions, and if you are tanning and smoking you need to stop right away. Also a proper diet is essential if you are serious about laser skin rejuvenation.
Sun damage can be corrected with a topical retinoid and laser.
Dynamic wrinkles or very deep lines will not respond to laser but can be addressed with Botox. The benefits of Botox become cumulative but once the skin is too loose, Botox does not give such effective results.
As well as Botox, often a combination of fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane, Radiesse, and Sculptra help to achieve a more natural fullness and more youthful contours. We lose volume in our face with age, so if you really want to roll back the years it must be restored.
What can you target in a laser skin rejuvenation session?:
Many laser skin rejuvenation methods target wrinkles. They take away the dead skin cells that crowd around the wrinkles on your skin. In addition to this, many of the treatments will help to restore more collagen into your skin. Collagen is something we lose when we get older, but it is essential for plump, soft and younger looking skin.
Sun and age spots
Sun spots and age spots are just a part of life, but they can disappear with a quick skin resurfacing procedure. These spots are a buildup of discolored skin, but many skin rejuvenation treatments are effective at breaking up these discolorations and revealing the beautiful, even-toned skin beneath.
If you have scars on your face or other areas of your skin, these can also be removed or diminished with various skin rejuvenation treatments. You will no longer have to hide these scars with heavy makeup as laser can help to smooth out your skin.
Laser skin rejuvenation helps to firm up the skin plus it smooths out the skin’s texture and imperfections. It does this by stimulating the re-grow of new and healthy collagen, which means it replaces old and damaged skin with fresh skin. Laser skin rejuvenation, mechanical resurfacing, chemical peels and injectable products can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the entire face or those that develop in specific regions of the face, such as the upper lip and around the eyes. These laser skin rejuvenation treatments can also be used to improve the appearance of acne scars or other skin conditions.
Laser skin rejuvenation can be used to treat one or more of the following skin concerns:
» age spots
» acne scars
» fine lines and wrinkles
» crow’s feet
» sagging skin
» uneven skin tone
» enlarged oil glands
Your natural skin tone determines what type of laser skin rejuvenation procedure is best suited for you. People with lighter skin tones are often good candidates of laser skin rejuvenation because they carry a reduced risk for hyperpigmentation. Laser skin rejuvenation therapy is a quick and painless way of ridding the upper layers of the skin from any visible damage done by the sun.
It is also one of the fastest methods for treating discoloration of the skin associated with rosacea. The laser skin rejuvenation treatment encourages collagen production around the skin’s capillaries, which can improve the youthful appearance of the skin and also help reduce enlarged pores.
Areas of dark pigmentation targeted during the laser skin rejuvenation treatment will begin to darken and eventually flake off within one to three weeks after the laser skin rejuvenation procedure. Beneath these patches will be beautiful, spot-free skin. Four to Five treatments are usually sufficient to see results, although often additional treatments may be recommended to obtain optimal results, especially for excessively sun damaged skin. Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in the condition.
There are many different ways to rejuvenate the skin –
Surgical: cosmetic surgery such as eyelid lift or facelift, are procedures that are usually performed just once, produce a dramatic improvement, but have a longer downtime.
Non-surgical: treatments such as the ones we delve into in detail on this page, produce subtle improvements, are usually delivered in a series of multiple skin rejuvenation treatments, with results that are often significant, and have little to no downtime
For laser skin rejuvenation there are many options available for dealing with the common age related changes that occur in the face. They range from minimally invasive to invasive. Properly diagnosing the anatomical reasons for aging is essential for developing an effective skin rejuvenation treatment plan.
These are some services of skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment methods:
Laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments – removes discoloration and tighten sagging skin
Chemical Peels – various acid peels used in different combinations to remove damaged outer skin layers
Ablative Laser Treatments – remove outer layers of skin to smooth lines and wrinkles
Mechanical Ablation – surgical scraping methods to soften skin surface irregularities
Non-Ablative Treatments – minimally invasive sanding methods to treat light scarring and discolorations
Dermal Fillers – injectable compounds to improve skin contouring
Botulinum Toxin Type Treatments – blocks nerve contraction to relax wrinkles
Spider Vein Treatment – injections to collapse unsightly surface veins
Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments will vary in their results. Each and every person is unique and will exhibit different combinations of genetic and environmental signs of aging that impact their skin.
However, it’s safe to say that a course of laser skin rejuvenation is probably one of the quickest and easiest methods of rejuvenating the skin.
