Corrective skin care procedures can repair damaged, aging skin. These treatments can correct skin conditions ranging from wrinkles and rough texture to hyperpigmentation and telangiectasias. Afterward, the treated skin will be clearer, softer, firmer, and even youthful and healthy.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL or Photofacial)
A photofacial uses intense pulsed light to target and repair damaged skin. With varying wavelengths of light, this treatment can be personalized to reverse sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness, wrinkles, acne, pore size, and textural irregularities. As the laser is applied to the targeted areas, the thin columns of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by either the blood or melanin – depending on the type of lesion being treated. The body naturally breaks down and removes the affected tissue, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact.
Patients can expect minimal discomfort and no downtime with a photofacial treatment. Even a single treatment can produce results that last up to two years or longer. A series of treatment sessions is recommended for optimum results. Photofacial treatments can be performed anywhere on the face and body.
Chemical peels use specially-formulated chemical solutions to rejuvenate the skin of the face. A chemical solution is applied to the skin and causes old skin cells to peel off, revealing a new, healthier skin layer. Chemical peels can be used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, age spots, skin texture, and sun damage. The skin will be temporarily more sensitive and should be protected with sunscreen and limited sun exposure after treatment.
Micro-needling with PRP
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used in combination with PRP, micro-needling is even more effective. Topical application of the PRP solution during micro-needling permits the growth factors to access the deeper layers of the skin, enhancing the effects of collagen growth and cell turnover. A “PRP facial” with microneedling provides your skin with a wonderful youthful glow with minimal downtime, as the PRP actually speeds the healing process.
