Your Complete Guide to Cosmetic Facial Treatments
If you are looking to fight off the signs of aging or want to reduce the appearance of skin deformities, you may be looking for a facial cosmetic treatment. We currently offer a variety of facial cosmetic services that will help you look great again without any significant recovery times. Our treatments include everything from scrubbing away dead skin tissue to using state of the art equipment to increase the collagen production in your skin. Here is what we offer for our cosmetic facial treatments:
Chemical peels have been a popular treatment option for getting rid of sun damage and skin blemishes for years. This procedure is exactly as it sounds: It uses a chemical solution that will start causing the outermost skin layers to peel off. We do not peel off the skin tissue during the office visit but instead apply a chemical solution gently over the face. This will cause the skin tissue to slowly peel away over the next several days. Chemical peels are a great way to treat a variety of skin imperfections and they can even remove precancerous skin growths.
You can choose between a light, medium, and deep chemical peel depending on the results you are looking for. Deeper chemical peels can help remove the appearance of significant skin issues such as wrinkles and even acne scars. Lighter peels are perfect for removing skin blemishes. The deeper the chemical peel, the longer your face will need to heal after the procedure. Chemical peels are not ideal for darker skin tones.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
For similar results without the chemical solution, you can consider laser skin resurfacing. This facial cosmetic option is one of our most popular skin care treatments. Laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated light beams that are directed at your skin, helping to improve the overall tone, texture, and appearance. Our patients use this procedure to help reduce the appearance of sun spots, skin discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, and overall redness. You can even use laser skin resurfacing to get rid of unwanted body hair or surgical scars. Similar to chemical peels, there are two levels of laser skin resurfacing. Our ablative lasers work by removing the outermost skin layer. Non-ablative lasers will cause your skin tissue to heat up, promoting accelerated collagen production.
When our skin becomes injured, it will heal and eventually shed away the damaged skin tissue layer. We can cause superficial “injuries” that will do just that. Microneedling uses tiny needles that puncture the skin tissue, allowing it to heal. This process promotes renewed collagen and elastin production in your skin, allowing it to become firmer and look younger. We recommend microneedling to treat wrinkles, large skin pores, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Microneedling can be used on all skin tones and is a great option for those who cannot receive chemical peels. While the results of microneedling may not be as dramatic as a chemical peel, you will be able to reap the benefits without having to worry if it can work on your skin tone.
Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion
Instead of causing superficial injuries or removing the top layer of your skin with a chemical solution, we can also slough away dead skin cells. Dermabrasion is a great procedure that will safely remove dying skin tissue so the younger and healthier tissue below can come up. We use rapidly rotating instruments that will carefully remove each layer. A regular dermabrasion is ideal to reduce the appearance of scar tissue and balance out your skin complexion. If you want to simply reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, a microdermabrasion may be recommended. This is a lighter form of a dermabrasion that exfoliates the skin instead of a deeper slough. Similar with the previous procedures, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion both have short recovery times, but a microdermabrasion will be easier on the skin.
Intense Pulsed Light
If you are suffering from pigmentation issues in your skin, you might want to consider an intense pulsed light procedure. This treatment uses a broad spectrum of light that will be absorbed by your skin, unlike laser skin resurfacing that uses a single focused laser. Your skin will absorb the excess pigmentation, allowing it to look more even. This treatment will also help increase the collagen production in your skin, allowing it to firm up. Intense pulsed light is a recommended procedure for those who are looking to treat hyperpigmentation, rosacea, spider veins, and overall skin texture issues.
