Has your skin been looking less than its best lately? Signs of sun damage and premature aging can leave you looking older than your actual age. Fortunately, undergoing one of our facial treatments can help you turn back the clock on aging skin that gives away your age.
Microdermabrasion is one of the mildest forms of facial treatments, but it has the ability to make a clear difference for skin that is looking dull and tired. The outer layer of your skin is actually composed of nonliving tissue. This layer, medically known as the stratum corneum, is made up of dead skin cells, oils, and dirt. By removing it, we are allowing your skin’s natural radiance to shine forth.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, we use a device to spray microscopic particles onto the surface of your skin to break up the stratum corneum. These particles are gentle abrasives that act as a type of mild exfoliation. After the treatment, we remove the microcrystals and cellular debris. This will help to brighten your complexion and diminish the appearance of light lines and wrinkles.
Fillers like Juvederm® are great at reducing the signs of aging and can even be used to postpone surgery when you are dealing with light to moderate wrinkles and aging skin. These products are injectable substances suspended within a gel. Once injected into your face, they promote increased skin volume to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid, which is an important skin component in youthful, healthy skin. It attracts moisture into your skin and has a plumping effect. Its age-related loss leads to thinner skin that is more susceptible to the development of wrinkles. Juvederm® facial treatments consist of a hyaluronic acid injection combined with lidocaine that will help to ensure your comfort.
Not to be confused with microdermabrasion, microneedling is a powerful form of skin rejuvenation that helps to minimize skin problems like lines, wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation. During this treatment, we move the microneedling device over your skin to form thousands of micro-channels. These microscopic openings trigger a self-repair process involving the formation of new collagen. You should notice some initial results within just weeks, with optimal results obtained within months after a series of treatment sessions. If you wish, you can opt to combine this treatment with PRP for enhanced facial rejuvenation.
