Are you dealing with signs of aging or sun damage on your skin? These unwelcome skin changes can leave you looking older than your actual age. One of the fastest-growing areas in cosmetic dermatology is minimally invasive treatments. Although cosmetic surgery certainly offers dramatic results, non-surgical procedures often rival it in results and boast additional benefits. Cosmetic dermatology has seen incredible advances in recent years. No matter what the current condition of your skin, there is a treatment or procedure that can benefit you.
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are an extremely popular type of cosmetic dermatology procedure. They involve the application of various chemicals contained within a solution. These chemicals will peel away portions of the outer skin layer, prompting your body to replace damaged skin tissue with more youthful skin.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is another minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can help reduce the appearance of aging and sun damage. We use a medical laser to direct thermal energy under the skin surface. Your body responds to this by removing unwanted skin tissue and replacing it with skin that displays fewer imperfections.
One of the most appealing aspects of laser skin resurfacing is its ability to offer significant results with very little to no downtime. This is because the incredible precision of the treatment process allows us to only remove unwanted skin tissue, leaving the neighboring skin intact and reducing your healing time.
As you get older, your body produces less of certain substances that promote youthful skin. One of these is known as hyaluronic acid. This important skin substance attracts moisture and increases skin thickness to help prevent wrinkles. Less hyaluronic acid production in older persons leads to thinner, drier skin that tends to develop wrinkles and sag.
JUVEDERM® is a dermal filler injection of hyaluronic acid contained within a gel. This will rectify your hyaluronic acid deficiency and help reverse the process that leads to the formation of wrinkles. This type of cosmetic dermatology will also add loads of volume to your face.
