There are a number of things that you can be doing at home to enhance and maintain the appearance of your skin. However, there are times when only the professional skincare services of a dermatologist will suffice. Many of our treatments and procedures fall under the umbrella of anti-aging dermatology. We live in an exciting era of innovations in this field, and there is a treatment available for virtually every condition. Many of them do not even require surgery.
A growing number of our patients are becoming familiar with a relatively new anti-aging treatment called microneedling. This procedure takes advantage of the known fact that controlled skin injury fosters skin rejuvenation. Microneedling can help you if you are dealing with lines, wrinkles, scars, or a rough skin texture.After applying a numbing agent to your skin, we pass the microneedling device over it repeatedly. This forms hundreds of microscopic punctures in the surface of your skin. While these tiny injuries are virtually undetectable to the naked eye, they trigger a skin rejuvenation process that results in a gradual improvement in skin imperfections that can make you appear younger and more refreshed.
Chemical peels comprise a number of treatments that involve the peeling away of varying portions of the outer skin layer to reveal new and fresh looking skin underneath that displays fewer imperfections like wrinkles, blemishes, and scars. The lightest type of chemical peel is known as the superficial peel that involves the application of a unique solution to remove only dead skin cells and cellular debris to lighten and brighten your look. Superficial peels do not require any sedation or downtime.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Today’s medical lasers are incredibly efficient at removing unwanted skin tissue, leaving neighboring tissue intact. The results require significantly less downtime than many other skin rejuvenation procedures. Laser skin resurfacing may benefit you if you desire a reduction in lines, wrinkles, scars, or stretch marks.
Sculptra is a type of dermal filler that can help you erase fine lines and wrinkles and appear significantly younger. The product is an injectable gel that is effective at reversing the signs of aging. Over the course of several weeks, the Sculptra treatment injected into your skin will be replaced by fresh collagen. Having additional collagen present within your skin means that it will become thicker and display fewer signs of aging.
These are just a few examples of the many treatment options a professional skincare provider can provide you. If you are ready to take the next steps towards achieving optimal skin health reach out to us here at Pierre Skin Care Institute. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
