Four Awesome Procedures for Improving Skin Quality

It is very common for people to look for different ways to improve the quality of their skin. You may need to remove some sun damage or just get rid of a few wrinkles here and there. At St. Louis Laser Lipo and Vein Center we have a range of treatments and procedures that can give you a glowing, youthful look.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing

Fractional skin resurfacing is a relatively new procedure that can improve skin conditions such as acne scars, sagging skin, sun damage, wrinkles and other issues. This technique uses radio frequencies to increase collagen and elastin production that will help return or maintain the skin’s elasticity. During the procedure, micro-needles combined with heat penetrate the deep levels of the skin to stimulate the new collagen growth.

PRP

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a simple procedure that uses your own blood platelets to stimulate your skin’s collagen and elastin production, along with promoting healing. During the procedure, a small sample of your blood is taken and processed to separate the red cells from the platelets and blood serum. This results in a plasma serum that is loaded with platelets and growth factors, which is injected into the face through microscopic needle punctures. Dr. Wright often uses this technique to boost the effects of skin rejuvenation procedures such as Fractora or Dermapen.

Photo Rejuvenation and Resurfacing

If you are troubled by age spots or other skin pigmentation problems, these can make you look older than you feel. It is often on the hands and face that we start seeing these signs of aging. Photo skin rejuvenation can help lighten these spots. This procedure uses focused light to target the spots. It is combined with a pneumatic technique that will identify the area to be treated and isolates them for the wavelength application.

Skin Rejuvenation with Facials and Peels

At the St. Louis Laser Lipo and Vein Center, we also offer a set of treatments from our highly skilled estheticians that can help with skin rejuvenation. After undergoing a custom evaluation, we can recommend a course of treatment. These can include customized facials that will target your specific skin care needs.

For a more advanced approach, we also offer chemical peels that can produce great skin rejuvenation results. Depending upon your needs, a chemical of varying depth can be used to tackle a range of skin issues from scars to uneven skin tone, along with mild to moderate wrinkles.
