Summer is right around the corner, which means skin-baring season. Luckily there are various ways you can brighten your skin, reduce fine lines and obtain a healthy looking summer glow. Patients of the Medspa at Smith Plastic Surgery Institute have their choice of several skin treatments including Dermapen, facials and chemical peels.
One procedure, which not only feels refreshing, but leaves the skin revitalized, is a facial. During a facial, a patient’s skin will be analyzed in order to determine if it is oily, dry or sensitive. This helps determine what products and treatments would be the most beneficial.
The exact steps of a facial may vary by clients’ needs and preferences. In general, a facial may include stream, which relaxes and softens up blackheads before extraction. Exfoliation will usually follow in order to remove dead skin. Removal of whiteheads or blackheads can also be incorporated into a facial if needed. A facial massage and facial mask are also often part of the process.
People of all ages and all skin types can benefit from a facial. It is noninvasive and relatively inexpensive way to brighten the skin and improve its look and feel.
For patients looking for treatment for certain skin problems, such as acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles Dermepen may be a good choice. Dermepen is an innovative procedure used to rejuvenate and tighten the skin.
The procedure involves using a FDA approved device, which incorporates multiple tiny needles in order to pierce the skin vertically. The electronic device utilizes a controlled and set depth in order to prevent damage to the epidermis. The tiny wounds encourage the production of new collagen as the skin heals. The result is smoother and tighter skin. Dermepen is safe, quick and very little downtime is required after the procedure. The number of treatments recommended may vary depending on a patient’s goals. The procedure can be performed monthly.
Another option to improve the skins surface is chemical peels. Just as the name implies, chemical peels involve using varied chemical solutions, which are applied to the skin. The solution helps remove the damaged outer layer of the skin, which results in smoother, healthier skin. The chemical solution can be adjusted in order to meet a patient’s needs.
Chemical peels are often used to treat sun damage, age spots, decrease the appearance of mild scars and reduce fine lines. A chemical peel is divided into different categories including superficial, medium or deep. The recommended type of peel will vary based on patient needs and preferences.
Whether a patient has fine lines, acne scars or just wants to brighten their skin, there are several non-surgical procedures to achieve great results. Non-surgical facial treatments usually do not require significant downtime and are a less invasive option than plastic surgery.
Attaining rejuvenated skin through procedures, such as chemical peels, facials and Dermapen can leave you with more than better skin. It can improve your overall appearance and self-confidence.
