What’s the Best Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
From acne to age spots, our skin begins to collect visible signs of wear over time. Whether it’s scarring that leaves skin bumpy or uneven, redness or irritation, brown patches, wrinkles, or creases, the skin can show a lot of issues on its surface. Plus, over time, collagen and elastin – the naturally occurring substances that are responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity – diminish. Fortunately, there are many skin rejuvenation treatments out there to solve these problems.
Lasers have become all the rage in recent years, and for good reason. They can remove unwanted hair for good, destroy unwanted ink to effectively fade tattoos, and even treat freckles, moles, and birthmarks. There are a host of different laser skin resurfacing treatments on the market, so depending on your needs and area of concern, you might respond differently to them. Working with a knowledgeable and experienced provider will ensure you get the best advice possible and walk away with a treatment plan specifically tailored to you.
The ELOS Plus is one of the most powerful and multifaceted skin rejuvenation treatments available. It works for laser hair removal, skin tightening, and skin rejuvenation, as well as treating dermal conditions such as acne and skin pigmentation issues. With this one-stop-shop treatment, you could be well on your way to brighter, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
ELOS treatments are safe and customizable. The laser uses several powerful forms of energy – including optical, radio frequency, and infrared – within the same device. Using two pulses of energy that act synergistically, the treatment can enhance the skin and gently eliminate or lessen blemishes, as well as producing significant improvement in collagen and elastin production. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, and while multiple treatments may be needed, many people respond to just one treatment, seeing results quickly.
Another excellent treatment option for promoting collagen production is Sculptra. This treatment can build up sagging cheekbones and restore sunkenness in the face, as well as filling in deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Sculptra is a facial injectable, but it’s different from Botox or dermal fillers that work on surface-level wrinkles. Instead, Sculptra works deep within the dermis to help replace lost collagen and gradually restore a look of fullness to the treated areas.
With a Sculptra injectable, the injected volume immediately fills out the wrinkles and volume loss. In the days after injection, the water in Sculptra is absorbed by the body with a slight increase in wrinkle depth. The final phase includes a natural soft buildup of connective tissue, smoothing out wrinkles. Ultimate results are seen approximately 6 weeks post-treatment. Additional treatments may be needed, but once treated, Sculptra lasts for up to 2 years.
Not ready for lasers or injectables? A chemical peel facial treatment can be a great option for those new to skin rejuvenation treatments. Chemical peels are safe, surface-level treatments that work by exfoliating the skin. They use a specialized chemical solution that can be customized and formulated to a specific depth appropriate for the individual. Chemical peels remove the top layer of dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and other debris that can lead to skin issues like acne or dullness, but they also promote collagen and elastin production beneath the surface of the skin. Chemical peels can be an excellent introduction to the world of skin rejuvenation.
