With laser resurfacing, light waves are used to destroy the outer layer of damaged skin. This prompts the development of new skin cells. Over time, your skin will have a marked reduction in acne scars and have an improved texture. Some options include the Active FX, Deep FX, Scaar FX and/or Total FX laser treatments. The different options use different types of lasers, and are better suited for certain cases – some versions of the procedure, for example, are more effective for use on skin of a darker pigmentation, while others work best on certain depths of acne pitting. Laser resurfacing takes longer to heal than some other treatments, but is also associated with exceptionally high rates of patient satisfaction. Because the laser burns off the top layer of skin, the procedure requires some downtime – new skin is typically regrown within ten days, though it may take up to 18 months to fully heal and achieve normal pigmentation.
This minimally-invasive procedure utilizes a series of incredibly tiny needles to create what are called "micro-channels" in the topmost layer of your skin. While this procedure is mostly painless (and we'll help you with a topical ointment to further numb your skin, for maximum comfort), your skin is actually "tricked" into instigating its wound response.
This promotes the generation of collagen and elastin, restorative compounds that your body typically uses to heal injuries.
These compounds help your skin retain moisture, maintain volume, and generally hold onto that youthful glow. The procedure is quick, easy, and can be completed during your lunch break, and you'll have little more than some slight redness in the treatment area, once the procedure is over.
Photorejuvenation works by using a laser light source to stimulate the skin’s production of collagen. It creates tiny, superficial wounds in the skin’s surface, which then activates the body’s natural response to heal itself, producing new, smoother tissue. This wound response sends compounds known as collagen and elastin to the treatment area, which naturally encourage your skin to retain more moisture, maintain an improved amount of volume, and generally hold onto that youthful glow for longer.
After a series of several treatments, you will start noticing results of the treatment. Since the laser light source does not remove any skin layers, there is no downtime and no recovery period.
During a chemical peel, outer layers of scarred and damaged skin are removed, which stimulates the growth of new skin cells. Specifically, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the skin to blister and then peel over the course of several days.
When the skin regrows, it is smoother and younger-looking, and the appearance of acne scars is greatly reduced. Depending on the type of chemicals used, you may have almost no downtime or possibly several days where your activities will be limited by swelling. Regular treatments can minimize acne scarring and reveal smoother, healthier-looking skin.
This incredibly advanced procedure produces amazing results, all while being quick, easy, and nearly painless. We'll help you with a topical ointment to keep you nice and comfortable, while a series of ultra-fine needles create what are known as "micro-channels" in the outermost layer of your skin. This is combined with radiofrequency (RF) energy, which penetrates into specific layers of your skin, to tighten and rejuvenate, while both processes work to encourage the production of collagen and elastin.
These compounds help your skin stay youthful, retain more moisture, and generally maintain an improved amount of volume — and it can all be done without any surgery, and with a minimal recovery period.
This injectable filler is completely safe, incredibly effective, quick, and easy...and it produces amazing results when it comes to minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation. By injecting a synthetic form of what's known as hyaluronic acid (HA), BellaFill acts as a "dermal filler," restoring lost volume to the treatment area and walking back the presence of fine lines, wrinkles, and other early signs of aging in the process.
If you're worried about the encroaching presence of those frustrating fine lines and wrinkles, but aren't convinced that a full-on facelift is necessary for you, BellaFill might be the perfect way to meet your cosmetic goals.
