Maintaining a good home skin care routine is so important in having healthy, vibrant skin that glows. If you have been dealing with skin that is overly dry, wrinkled, or sags, you know how frustrating it can be. Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, we need professional skin care treatments to look our best. Although some patients worry that surgery is their only option, there are many minimally-invasive skin care treatments available that can substantially improve the condition of your skin without the need for risky surgery.
If you have mild to moderate wrinkles, scars, or blemishes, you may be interested in the relatively new treatment of microneedling. The treatment involves the use of a microneedling device to form hundreds of microscopic punctures in the skin. This forces your body into depositing new skin cells to fill in the holes created by the procedure. Microneedling is a treatment that you can repeat on a regular basis, as the results are cumulative.
One benefit of a microneedling treatment is that you can expect little to no downtime. The micro-injuries are normally invisible to the naked eye. Your skin may appear somewhat red for a day or two, resembling a mild sunburn. Over the following weeks and months, your skin will remodel itself, resulting in fewer lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.
If you have wrinkles, dry skin, or hollowed facial areas, a treatment with dermal fillers may benefit you. Hyaluronic acid is typically injected into the face in the form of a gel. Once within your skin, dermal fillers increase facial volume, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Lasers are seeing increased use in the field of dermatology due to their ease of use and incredible precision, allowing us to remove only unwanted skin and leaving surrounding skin tissue intact. These skin care treatments use a medical laser to enhance the skin by correcting minor flaws. This is accomplished by removing outer skin layers. Your own body will then do the work of replacing that old skin with newer, more radiant skin.
