As the skin ages, it becomes thinner and less elastic because collagen and elastin, the tissues that keep the skin firm, become weaker. These changes lead to the appearance of fine lines, sagging skin, and other unwanted signs of aging.
Dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons have the medical training and experience required to use a wide range of surgical and non-surgical methods to treat skin conditions. As experts on skin aging, these doctors are uniquely qualified to keep skin healthy and its youthful look.
Facial rejuvenation can effectively:
Facial rejuvenation injections are generally used to “plump’’ furrows and hollows in the face, reduce wrinkles, and give the skin a smoother and more youthful-looking appearance but of course, the results may vary from one case to another. The treatment with them is considered effective at contouring specific areas on the face, such as the areas around the lips and mouth, and may be used to correct depressions and scars.
Injectable products are used to diminish lines and wrinkles associated with facial expressions. A safe and effective procedure, it involves injecting tiny amounts of toxins into specific muscles in order to relax the muscles as it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, skin discoloration, age spots, dull skin texture, and mild acne scars by applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin and stimulate new skin growth. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in color. Chemical peels may produce reddening and peeling similar to a sunburn, which typically lasts a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the peel.
Laser rejuvenation can effectively treat certain scars, skin discoloration, and broken blood vessels. It is also effectively treated lines and blemishes on the neck and can modestly tighten sagging skin. Laser resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, deeper scars, and early changes leading to cancerous skin growths. However, laser resurfacing is not a substitute for a facelift. Having laser resurfacing may delay more invasive procedures by tightening loose skin and diminishing certain folds and creases. Today, many different lasers are used to rejuvenate the skin, including:
• Fractional Rejuvenation
Non-invasive technology that precisely targets the small areas of skin where damage has occurred, leaving the surrounding, healthy skin untouched and better able to assist in the healing of the damaged cells.
• Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Uses broad-spectrum light, which filters out unwanted harmful wavelengths. It can be used to treat vascular lesions, improve skin texture and color, and reduce pore size.
This non-invasive technology causes skin contraction and tightening that can lead to a face, brow, and cheeks lift without surgery or downtime.
A number of surgical procedures are used to remove (excise) moles, scars, and benign skin growths that may enlarge with age. If surgical excision is appropriate, the dermatologist can explain how the procedure is performed and explain the risks and benefits of the chosen procedure.
A growing number of facial rejuvenation procedures are being applied to improve the neck and jowl areas. Depending on how advanced the condition, treatment options may include a combination of different techniques, such as chemical peels, injection rejuvenation, and laser resurfacing.
Mesotherapy is the unique combination of art and science developed by Dr. Michel Pistor of Paris, France in 1952 and now became one of the most important established ways in Europe to improve the skin texture, fullness, glow, and radiance by targeting the dermis the source of collagen and the source of youth.
