What Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Are Available?
Skin rejuvenation procedures used at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center to increase or restore a more youthful appearance include Chemical Peels, Fotofacial / IPL / Photo Rejuvenation, Microdermabrasion, and Laser Skin Resurfacing. These treatments can be used singularly or in combination to eliminate age spots, reduce facial wrinkles, and improve the overall appearance of aging skin. These procedures can be used for both men and women to achieve striking results!
Chemical peeling is used to improve the skin’s appearance by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layers of skin to separate and peel off. The new skin that is revealed is smoother, less wrinkled, and may be more even in color.
Treatment results may be enhanced with laser/light-based rejuvenation techniques or combined with other procedures, such as dermal fillers or BOTOX® rejuvenation. During your consultation at the Bay Area Laser Surgery Center, a thorough evaluation of your needs will be determined.
Chemical peels can be used for the following treatments:
- Reduce fine lines
- Treat mild scarring and certain types of acne.
- Diminish skin discoloration, such as sun spots,
- age spots, liver spots, freckles, or blotchiness.
- Refresh skin texture and color.
Photo Rejuvenation (also known as FotoFacial and IPL) is a cosmetic treatment designed to treat fine lines, vascular redness, the appearance of Rosacea, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure. With the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, dramatic improvements can be accomplished with little or no "downtime" and very minimal discomfort.
What are Microdermabrasion treatments like? We affect a superficial skin polishing with the aid of a delicate hand piece through which micro crystals are vacuumed. This technique delivers a gentle abrasion, which efficiently produces satisfying results in as little as twenty minutes.
How Does Micro-Dermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion treatments enhance your skin's appearance through a course of bi-weekly sessions. The most effective treatment method is to perform Microdermabrasion treatments in combination with chemical peels. These treatments combat the signs of aging skin, thus achieving what no other available treatment can (without surgery). Most importantly, Microdermabrasion is safe to use on all skin colors and types.
Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center carries the Obagi Nu Derm® System, Revision Skincare products, and few selected Skin Medica products, as well as Latisse® the eyelash extender. Anyone interested in any of these products may have a complimentary consultation with our skincare specialist nurses.
