Facts About Facial Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

As skin ages, it becomes thinner and less elastic because collagen and elastin, the tissues that keep the skin firm, become weaker. These changes lead to fine lines, sagging skin, and other unwanted signs of aging. Dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons have the medical training and experience required to use a wide range of surgical and non-surgical methods to treat skin conditions. As experts on skin aging, these doctors are uniquely qualified to keep skin healthy and youthful looking.

Risks of Facial Skin Rejuvenation

All medical procedures have associated risks. In general, the more invasive the procedure, the greater the associated risk. Patients who undergo facial rejuvenation may experience some temporary side effects, such as mild redness, swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort. Scarring, persistent redness, or permanent pigment changes are possible with more invasive procedures.

What’s Involved with Facial Skin Rejuvenation

Treatment is usually performed in a dermatologist’s office, which offers the patient a convenient and cost-effective approach with little or no downtime.

Many factors influence the treatment that the dermatologist may recommend to rejuvenate one’s face, including age, health, skin type, and the amount of sun damage. A dermatologist also can recommend rejuvenation procedures for other areas, such as the skin on the neck, shoulders, or hands. In some cases, more than one treatment may be used to produce better and longer-lasting results.

Facial rejuvenation procedures fall into the following key categories:

Topical Products

Either prescription or non-prescription products, topicals are usually used to treat milder signs of aging, such as fine lines and superficial wrinkles. Topicals also offer preventive value and can reduce the need to repeat procedures or increase the time between them.

Fillers & Botulinum Toxin Rejuvenation

Soft-tissue fillers (also known as dermal fillers) are generally used to “plump” furrows and hollows in the face, reduce wrinkles, and give the skin a smoother and more youthful-looking appearance. They also are very effective at contouring specific areas on the face, such as around the lips and mouth, and can correct depressions and scars.

Filler substances include collagen, self-donated fat (fat is removed from one part of a patient’s body and injected into another part), hyaluronic acid, hydroxyapatite, 20% Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), 80% Purified Collagen Gel, poly-L-Lactic acid, and polymer implants.

A very safe and effective procedure, botulinum toxin rejuvenation involves injecting tiny amounts into specific muscles in order to relax the muscles as that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum rejuvenation is used to treat vertical lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, forehead lines and furrows, and crow’s feet. This procedure also may be used to diminish visible bands on the neck.

Dermabrasion & Microdermabrasion In Miami Beach, FL

Dermabrasion is a resurfacing procedure with an abrasive instrument that mechanically sands the skin to remove outer skin layers and smooth the treated skin to achieve a rejuvenated appearance. This technique is used to treat substantial scarring, discoloration, and sun damage. The results are generally remarkable and long-lasting.

Microdermabrasion uses micro-particles, or a diamond-tipped wand, to remove some of the top skin layer (epidermis) and stimulate new skin growth. This non-invasive treatment produces virtually no discomfort, requires no topical or local anesthetic, and involves practically no recovery or downtime. Multiple treatments spaced two to three weeks apart are needed.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, skin discoloration, age spots, dull skin texture, and mild acne scars by applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin and stimulate new skin growth. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in color. Chemical peels may produce reddening and peeling similar to a sunburn, which typically lasts a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the peel.

Laser & Light Rejuvenation – IPL / LED Lasers

Laser rejuvenation can effectively treat certain scars, skin discoloration, and broken blood vessels. It also effectively treats lines and blemishes on the neck and can modestly tighten sagging skin. Laser resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, deeper scars and early changes leading to cancerous skin growths. However, laser resurfacing is not a substitute for a facelift. Having laser resurfacing may delay more invasive procedures by tightening loose skin and diminishing certain folds and creases. Today, many different lasers are used to rejuvenate the skin, including:

Ablative Lasers

Ablative lasers actually remove a certain volume of skin and induce skin tightening and improvement in texture and tone. The traditional C02 and erbium lasers are used for severe skin aging and sun damage. The latest ablative devices are fractionated, where millions of tiny dots are laid down on the skin surface surrounded by normal untreated skin. These ‘dots’ represent columns of tissue that have been removed with immediate skin tightening and new collagen production which continues for up to one year. Laser manufacturers have ‘fractionated’ both C02 and Erbium YAG lasers. Both can give very nice results with fast healing and reduced complications in comparison to traditional laser resurfacing.

Non-Ablative Lasers

Work beneath the surface skin layer to stimulate collagen growth and tighten underlying skin to remove fine lines with little to no healing time.

Fractional Rejuvenation

Non-invasive technology that precisely targets the small areas of skin where damage has occurred, leaving the surrounding, healthy skin untouched and better able to assist in the healing of the damaged cells.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Uses broad-spectrum light, which filters out unwanted harmful wavelengths. It can be used to treat vascular lesions, improve skin texture and color, and reduce pore size.

Light Emitting Devices (LED)

May help to treat skin discoloration and fine wrinkling.

Photodynamic Therapy

Used to treat sun-damaged skin, this procedure involves applying a topical medication, 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA), to the skin. The medication is left on the skin for a specified time. The area is then treated with blue light, IPL, or a pulsed dye or KTP laser. The procedure can effectively treat early changes in the skin that may lead to skin cancer.

Plasma Technology

Helps to improve fine lines, skin tightening and pigmentation.

Radiofrequency Technology

This non-invasive technology causes skin contraction and tightening that can lead to lifting of the face, brow, and cheeks without surgery or downtime.

Surgical Excision

A number of surgical procedures are used to remove (excise) moles, scars, and benign skin growths that may enlarge with age. If surgical excision is appropriate, the dermatologist can explain how the procedure is performed and explain the risks and benefits of the chosen procedure.

Tumescent Liposuction

Invented by a dermatologist, this minimally invasive surgical procedure is used to remove unwanted fat. When used on the face, it can eliminate sagging jowls or a double chin, improving the contour of the face and neck areas and rejuvenating the aging face. Tumescent liposuction can be performed in a dermatologist’s office under local anesthetic.

Neck & Jowl Treatments

A growing number of facial rejuvenation procedures are being applied to improve the neck and jowl areas. Depending on how advanced the condition, treatment options may include a combination of different techniques, such as chemical peels, botulinum rejuvenation, laser resurfacing, tumescent liposuction, and neck lifting.
