Skin rejuvenation treatments available
This modern procedure helps to treat fine lines, wrinkles, blocked pores, scarred tissue, sun damage and blemishes.
How the treatments work.
Medical microdermabrasion involves spraying a micro-fine mist of crystals to exfoliate and resurface your skin, helping it look and feel smoother. It is ideal for all skin types, resulting in healthier, fresher looking skin with improved elasticity and texture. Facial treatments usually take 20 to 30 minutes and you can apply makeup straight away.
A healthy glow is often visible after the first session, with longer lasting effects achieved after a course of four to six sessions. Top-up treatments are then recommended every one to two months.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
This rejuvenation treatment is designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin – ideal for reducing the visible signs of aging, exposure to the sun, blemishes, blotching and acne.
How the treatments work.
Light energy from the laser helps to gradually plump up your skin to fill out shallow or superficial scars or fine lines leaving it with a healthier and more youthful look. Treatment takes around 5 to 10 minutes. The skin may appear red or slightly swollen immediately after treatment, but this should disappear within 24 hours.
Hectic daily life and the environment can cause an excessive build up of dead skin cells that give your complexion a dull appearance. Skin peels will not only give your skin a healthy glow, they can successfully treat superficial discoloration, blemishes, blocked pores, acne scars, blackheads and fine lines. Removing the outer layer reveals fresher, smoother skin underneath.
How the treatments work
By shedding the outer skin, a new and firmer layer is formed, which is both healthier and less mottled. The treatment will take around 30 minutes and you can return to your commitments straight away without any redness or flaking.
However, we recommend you use the recovery cream as required after your treatment and wear sun block when outdoors. Although you will see improvements after your first treatment, your cosmetic treatment expert will discuss a recommended initial course and will advise when top-ups should take place.
Skin tightening is a laser treatment which improves skin texture and tone on the face and body. A course of treatments is required to obtain optimal results.
How the treatments work
Light from the laser helps destroy the bacteria that can cause acne.The laser heats an area of the inner layer of the skin (dermis). As the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that encourages the creation of new collagen. This new collagen improves the texture, elasticity and tone of the skin.
Acne and Rosacea Reduction
Laser treatment has become a popular way to clear up acne, offering long lasting results.
Thread vein removal
Although harmless, thread veins tend to occur as the skin ages and becomes thinner. They usually affect the face, body and legs, but can be removed.
How the treatments work
Laser treatments can remove thread veins quickly and effectively, usually with little or no scarring. Two or three sessions are often all that is required to leave your skin looking smooth and blemish-free.
Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing procedure
Laser resurfacing can 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 and around the eyes.
Laser & light treatments
Laser and light treatments or specially formulated chemical peels resurface the skin to treat pigmentation disorders, such as sun and age spots.
Careful consideration of your natural skin color and type will determine the treatment best suited for you to minimize the risk of developing additional pigmentation or a loss of pigmentation (whitening of the skin).
Laser & fractional resurfacing
Laser and fractional resurfacing, or mechanical resurfacing, such as dermabrasion or derma planing, can improve the appearance of acne scars as well as other skin conditions. The degree of scarring and your skin type and color will determine the treatment options available to you.
A series of treatments are often required to achieve improvement in skin texture and clarity and repeated treatments are essential to maintain your results.
What’s the Best Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?
The best treatment for skin rejuvenation varies depending upon an individual’s skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure, and overall health.
Reducing Visible Skin Flaws
There are several areas of skin which can be treated using laser skin rejuvenation. Such treatments are administered onto facial skin, legs, arms, torso and hands.
Facial treatments are naturally the most sought after laser skin rejuvenation treatments. This is because the appearance of our facial skin has great impact on how attractive we look. Smooth, wrinkle free facial skin makes us look young and healthy.
Possible Laser skin rejuvenation side effects may vary between the areas treated and the type of skin blemish targeted.
The types of skin blemishes which can be made less visible, if not to altogether vanish are
- fine lines around the eyes (or beneath them), wrinkles on the forehead or around the mouth.
- scars in general and facial acne scars in particular.
- sun damages.
- birthmarks (such as epidermal nevi or linear).
- enlarged pores (mainly on and around the nose).
- liver spots (which tend to appear with old age).
- Yellowish or grayish skin tones (also typical to aging skin).
- Rejuvenating non-responsive skin, which is the result of a facelift.
- Skin lesions which are caused by rosacea, over pigmentation (which may be the result of over exposure to the sun), vascular lesions and more.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Today’s lasers can diminish many signs of aging from early wrinkles and age spots to deep lines and spider veins. A laser procedure often can be performed in less than an hour and may require little or no downtime.
Numerous lasers and light devices are used to rejuvenate the skin.
These devices are generally grouped into the following categories
Non-ablative laser rejuvenation :-
No downtime. Best for early signs of aging.
Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Not a laser, this light therapy penetrates deeper into the skin than a non-ablative laser. IPL does not injure the surface of the skin, so there is usually no downtime. IPL can improve skin texture and color as well as reduce pore size.
Photo dynamic therapy (PDT)
This is a two-step procedure. Firs, a solution that makes the skin more sensitive to light is applied and left on for 30 minutes or longer. Then the light from the laser or other source is beamed onto the treated area. Downtime is minimal. PDT decreases redness, reduces age spots and freckles, and improves the overall texture and appearance of the skin.
Fractional laser rejuvenation
Offers deeper rejuvenation. Recovery time is short. Best for diminishing signs of aging such as age spots, wrinkles, and skin discoloration.
Ablative laser resurfacing
Heats the skin to cause a visible wound, which means some downtime for recovery.Effective for deeper wrinkles and diminishing aging caused by years of unprotected sun exposure. A type of laser called a fractional ablative laser causes no visible wounds. Fractional ablative laser resurfacing requires less downtime than ablative laser resurfacing.
Signs of Aging Treated
Lasers and other light-based devices are used to treat these concerns:
- Age (sun) spots.
- Dark circles under the eye.
- Dry, dull skin.
- Fine lines.
- Hand rejuvenation (age spots, loose skin, and lines).
- Redness and flushing.
- Skin texture (treats roughness).
- Skin tone (treats mottled complexion and skin discoloration).
- Spider veins.
- Stretch marks.
- Tattoos (removal).
- Unwanted hair.
- Varicose veins.
How Laser Rejuvenation Works
In order to better understand possible laser skin rejuvenation side effects it is a good idea to learn a little about these treatments principals of the operation.
Laser skin rejuvenation is a type of photo rejuvenation treatment, non-invasive skin treatments where some type of light is projected onto the area of skin treated. Other photo rejuvenation treatments are IPL (Intense Pulse Light and IR (Infra Red).
Basically, laser skin rejuvenation is done by projecting a laser light onto the skin blemishes treated. The energy delivered causes the problematic cells to heat up and break down into substances which can then be absorbed and discarded via the blood stream.
The blemishes treated are mostly found on the skin’s surface, the “dermis”, but the laser energy also heats up sub skin tissues (the “epidermis”), this causes increased collagen production which does wonders towards improving overall skin complexion.
The accuracy of laser enables physicians to direct beams very precisely.Different chromophores (the part of a molecule responsible for its color) are targeted when treating different types of skin lesions, for example hemoglobin chromosphoes are targeted when eliminating vascular lesions while melanin chrosphores are targeted when treating pigmented lesions.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation :- What to Expect Before, During, and After
Lasers are used to treat a number of aging-skin concerns. The following explains what happens before, during, and after laser skin rejuvenation.
What to Expect Before Laser Skin Rejuvenation
While people of any age who are in good health may be a candidate for laser skin rejuvenation, a consultation is essential before the procedure. During this consultation, a dermatologist will gather your medical history.
Be sure to tell your dermatologist if you have
- Had unusual or prolonged wound healing.
- Any blood-clotting problems .
- A tendency to scar (keloid or raised scar).
- An infectious disease such as hepatitis or HIV .
- Had a cosmetic procedure, especially a filler, surgical facelift, or eyelid lift.
- Taken isotretinoin (a medication used to treat severe acne).
These will not necessarily preclude laser skin rejuvenation but may affect how the dermatologist proceeds.
During the consultation, your dermatologist will closely examine your skin. The success of any cosmetic procedure depends on effectively diagnosing what is causing the aging-skin concern and knowing how deeply the concern penetrates the skin.
If laser skin rejuvenation will diminish the signs of aging that concern you and is appropriate for you, your dermatologist will tell you what can be expected, the number of treatments needed, and potential side effects.
Between the consultation and the procedure, it is important to protect your skin from the sun and not tan. Laser skin rejuvenation is not performed on skin that is tan or sunburned.
If deep resurfacing is recommended, you will be given a skin care plan to follow before the procedure. Your dermatologist may prescribe a variety of topical (applied to the skin) and/or oral medications. What is prescribed depends on the type of laser to be used and the signs of aging to be treated.
What to Expect During Laser Skin Rejuvenation
While what happens during this procedure varies greatly with the type of laser or light therapy used, there are some similarities. These procedures are generally performed in a room set up specifically for laser or light therapy. Before the procedure, the skin is cleansed to remove oils and makeup. The patient is given eye protection, and topical anesthesia may be given.
If photo dynamic therapy (PDT) will be performed, a substance that makes the skin more sensitive to light, a photosensitize, will be applied and left on the skin for 30 minutes or longer.
The actual procedure involves the dermatologist using a wand-like laser or other handheld device that emits light. As the device is fired, it releases energy. Some people say this feels as if a rubber band is being snapped against the skin. After the treatment, ice packs may be applied to reduce the swelling and discomfort.
What to Expect After Laser Skin Rejuvenation
what you see after the procedure depends on the type of laser or other light therapy used. After a procedure with a non-ablative laser or IPL, you will not have a visible wound. But the treated skin will likely be red and puffy. These effects last a few hours and can be covered up with makeup. There is generally no downtime.
After photo dynamic therapy (PDT) or treatment with a fractional laser, the downtime is generally 1 to 3 days. Before leaving your dermatologist’s office, you will be given post-treatment instructions. After PDT, emphasis will be placed on how to protect your skin from the sun and other bright light. Sun exposure after PDT can be very painful and result in severe sunburn and blistering.
Downtime ranging from 3 days to 3 weeks is necessary after an ablative laser procedure because your skin will have a visible wound. While this wound will heal quickly, redness can last for 1 to 4 months — or even longer after some laser treatments. For about 1 year, you may experience visible flushing whenever you exert yourself.
At-home care following an ablative laser procedure includes wound care. For a specified number of days, you will need to use soaks and apply ointment. You may need to take an antibiotic and an antiviral to help prevent infection.
It is important to follow all instructions given after the procedure. Not following your dermatologist’s instructions regarding sun protection and wound care can cause side effects. These include scarring, long-lasting redness, and the appearance of spider veins. Following your dermatologist’s instructions also will help you see the best possible results.
What is the Normal “Side Effects” of Laser skin rejuvenation ?
As with many treatments (medaesthetic and others) undergoing them may involve enduring some unpleasantness. These are normal side effects which may be inevitable although their severity may vary considerably from one individual to another (even from one treatment session to another).
Laser skin rejuvenation side effects of this kind may be swelling, itching, lighter looking skin (new skin which has been less exposed to sun light), pink or red skin areas.
These side effects are relatively mild and easy to cope with. Patients will be instructed by medaesthetic clinics’ staff as to what steps to take, frequent moisturizing for example, using broad spectrum sunscreen, applying ointments (such as petroleum jelly), sometimes ice packs and other such measures.
How Safe is Laser Skin Rejuvenation ?
Since laser skin rejuvenation side effects are virtually insignificant and complications are extremely rare these treatments are considered very safe.
It is important to undergo such treatments at clinics known for their highly qualified staff and top quality equipment, such as medaesthetic machines produced by leading manufacturers such as Sharp Lite.
Opting for lower quality practitioners or equipment may result in complications such as burns, scarring, changes in skin pigmentation and even bacterial infection.
When See Results from Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Improvement is gradual. It may take several months to see the full effects. When a laser that does not require downtime is used, a series of treatments may be necessary to see the desired results. The number of treatments varies from person to person; however, between 3 and 6 treatments is the norm.
Research shows that laser rejuvenation can dramatically reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth and on the cheeks. With 1 treatment, age spots can be diminished by 50% and may be completely eliminated with follow-up treatments. Laser skin resurfacing can significantly reduce deep lines, effectively remove some shallow scars, and tighten the skin.
While lasers may sound like magic wands, they are not. It is important to have realistic expectations. Laser skin rejuvenation can be effective, but does not work for everyone.
Some skin tightening is possible, but lasers cannot produce the same degree of lifting seen after a surgical face lift or eyelid lift. Wrinkles caused by constant muscle movement such as frown lines can be hard to treat with lasers alone. Another procedure such as botulinum rejuvenation may be used along with a laser to obtain the desired results.
Possible Side Effects
While lasers and other light therapies have fewer side effects than more traditional skin resurfacing procedures such as chemical peeling and dermabrasion, there are still risks. The most common is unwanted temporary darkening or lightening of the treated skin. There also is a relatively small risk of scarring.
The success of every cosmetic procedure is highly dependent on the skill level and knowledge of the person performing it. The American Academy of Dermatology advises patients to do their homework and discuss their options and expectations with a board-certified dermatologist before undergoing any skin resurfacing treatment.
How Long Results Last
It is possible to permanently remove some signs of aging such as a spider vein, age spot, or scar. However, laser skin rejuvenation cannot stop the skin from continuing to age. Crow’s feet may re-appear and new age spots can develop. Because sun exposure accelerates signs of aging, protecting the skin from sun exposure will lengthen the amount of time that the results last. Protecting the skin from the sun also can prevent some signs of aging from re-appearing such as blotchy skin and dark patches.
How to Rejuvenate the Skin Naturally
We all want beautiful flawless skin, right? As we all know, it’s not the easiest thing in the world to achieve because we all age and we all have different skin types, some more stubborn than others. To rejuvenate means to uplift, restore, or make youthful. We would all love to rejuvenate our skin, so here are some natural home remedies on how to give your skin a new life.
- Give your skin a drink! Drinking water is crucial to maintaining your skin’s elasticity and suppleness, so about 8 glasses a day should do the trick, and no using carbonated and sugary drinks as an alternative to any of those 8 glasses.
- You need to give some thought and consideration to the type of makeup you choose at the store. Be sure the label says “OIL-FREE” and “unscented”. Choose a type that you won’t have to reapply constantly.
- Use a good skin moisturizer with added vitamin A,C, and E, which help block the penetration of environmental pollutants.
- Exercise! Not only is it great for your overall health, but your skin too! Choose a program such as aerobics because it can activate the skin and improve circulation and blood flow. Also, body sweat triggers production of sebum, which is the skin’s own natural moisturizer.
- Reduce stress. Stress impairs lipid barrier function (dry, dehydrated, dull skin), creates internal inflammation (prematurely aged skin, causing lines and wrinkles), compromises immune function (dullness, lack of radiance and uneven skin tone and texture), irritates skin or increases sensitivity (redness, itching, hives. Long-term effects could lead to psoriasis, eczema or rosacea) So with all that said.
Try to find a way to reduce the stress in your life,which can be a huge way to rejuvenate the skin. Set aside time to just relax, meditate, or take a long bath while listening to your favorite musical group. Reducing stress will definitely have amazing results for your body, So give it a try!
