Do you ever wish that you could turn back the clock to a time when your skin was softer, smoother, brighter, and more resilient? You may not be able to reverse the aging process altogether, but with today’s medical advancements you can certainly erase some of the most troublesome signs of aging.
Let’s take a look at three different kinds of cosmetic procedures that can help you with your biggest skin concerns.
Cosmetic Procedures for Youthful Skin
Chemical Peels Skin concerns: Fine lines, acne scars, rough skin
A chemical peel is an exfoliating treatment that can diminish the signs of aging by making skin smoother, brighter, and fuller. It can also treat some skin conditions and eliminate scarring from acne. Nearly 85% of people develop acne at some point in their lives. Though most experience it during puberty, it can also affect individuals in their 20s through 50s.
There are three primary types of chemical peels -- refreshing or "lunchtime" peels, medium peels, and deep peels. The refreshing peel takes up to a week to heal, while the medium peel can take up to two weeks. The deep peel is a lot more invasive and may not be fully healed for up to 21 days. The area will need to be bandaged and the patient will need to take an antiviral medication for about two weeks.
Microdermabrasion Skin concerns: Dull complexion, dark spots
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that gently exfoliates the skin to make the complexion brighter and smoother.
During this procedure, the dermatologist uses a handheld device to remove the top layer of skin. It is not painful and only takes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete the entire face. Though the skin may swell a bit and turn pink or red, these effects are gone within a day or two. To see results, a patient may need between five and 16 treatments.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone or rosacea, spider veins, sun damage
Laser skin rejuvenation involves treating the skin, layer by layer, to faciliate growth of healthy, new skin cells. It involves using a laser in an office setting to treat problem areas. This type of laser usually requires no to minimal downtime. The procedure may take 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area(s) treated. Results are usually seen within 2-4 weeks. This type of laser also usually requires 3-5 treatment sessions.
There are a few different kinds of laser skin cosmetic procedures available today. Fotofacial RF treatments typically take between 30 and 45 minutes and use a laser/light-based technology that is extremely safe and effective.
