Let’s talk about skin rejuvenation

If you want to improve the appearance of your skin, skin rejuvenation or resurfacing may be right for you.

Skin rejuvenation can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from laser, light and other energy-based treatments to chemical peels and other non-ablative methods such as skin care products. The result is a smoother, clearer and more youthful appearance to your skin.

What can skin rejuvenation treat?

Skin rejuvenation is a treatment to resurface your skin, or to improve the texture, clarity and overall appearance of your skin.

Conditions that can be treated include:

  • Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible at all times and do not change in appearance with facial movements.
  • Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear as folds when the skin is not moving, and deepen with facial movements or expressions.
  • Pigmentation: Freckles, sun spots, melasma, or other darkened patches of skin result mainly from sun exposure.
  • Scars: As the result of acne or injury to the skin, scars may be rolling (a wavy appearance to the skin), pitted, discolored, or have raised borders.
  • Vascular conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, vascular lesions that appear as tiny blood filled blisters or even a constant flush of facial redness.
  • Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structure (collagen and elastin fibers) that results in a loss of skin firmness, or the development of cellulite.

Is it right for me?

While not as involved as surgical cosmetic procedures, skin rejuvenation may involve medical procedures. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

Skin rejuvenation is an option for you if:

  • You are physically healthy
  • You don‚Äôt smoke
  • You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.

Our office offer’s skin care products and¬†a chemical peel, called a Blue Peel,¬†to¬†improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the entire face, or those that develop in specific regions of the face, such as the upper lip.¬† Our office utilizes Obagi’s Blue Peel¬†and Obagi skin care products.

The Obagi skin care products and the Obagi Blue Peel are specially formulated to treat pigmentation concerns, such as sun and age spots.  Careful consideration of your natural skin color and type will determine if this  treatment is suited for you.

What about my long-term recovery? A series of treatments may be required to achieve improvement in skin texture and clarity and repeated treatments are essential to maintain your results.

A special note about sun exposure: Absolute sun protection is essential for the first year after any chemical treatment to prevent irregular pigmentation. Diligent sun protection for life will help to maintain your new, younger, smoother skin.

The decision to have a skin rejuvenation treatment is extremely personal and you’ll have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.

Our physicians and/or staff will explain in detail the risks associated with your procedure. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure you will undergo and any risks and potential complications.

The risks include:

  • Infection
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Textural changes
  • Skin surface irregularities
  • Burns and scarring
