After reaching their late 20’s, many people wish they can turn back the hands of time and get back that smooth baby skin they were born with. As we age into our 30’s and 40’s and past the 50’s, overall moisture production (loss of hyaluronic acid) lessens and both collagen and elastin fibers begin to thicken, loosen and get stiff. This leads to increased wrinkles and dull, sagging skin. Luckily, there are extremely sophisticated, non-invasive and effective treatments available to those seeking to conquer the anti-aging battle!

Microdermabrasion: This non-chemical and non-invasive procedure is effective in exfoliating or removing dead layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion uses a spray of micro-crystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin in order to ensure a younger healthier skin.

Chemical & Medical Grade Peels: A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a specific chemical solution (made up of several acids) is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back is smoother and younger looking. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discolorations and scars.

Hydrafacial: The Hydrafacial machine is a hybrid skin system patented with Vortex-fusion technology that cleanses & peels with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing. It then extracts & hydrates by removing debris from pores with painless suction and nourishes with intense moisturizers that quench the skin. The last step involves fusion & protection of the skin by saturating the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize the skin’s glow. Hydrafacials reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity, firmness and texture of skin. It also reduces brown spots, enlarged pores and improves the appearance of oily and congested skin.

Micro-Needling with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP): Since our blood is rich in growth and healing factors, these can be used to induce new collagen production, reduce wrinkles grow new tissue. The treatment is done with Microneedling therapy or Collagen Induction Therapy, which uses fine needles to puncture the skin. The controlled injury combined with the PRP, triggers the body to fill in the micro-wounds by releasing growth factors that activate multi-potent stem cells to generate new, younger tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen for firmness and elasticity, new fatty tissue for plumpness and smoothness and new blood vessels for a healthy rosy glow. It increases epidermal cellular turnover while working with the natural healing response similar to acupuncture.

Photorejuvination: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial is a laser light treatment that targets pigment issues such as brown spots, sun damage, red spots and rosacea. The bright light passes through the epidermis, drawing out the pigment producing cells and dispersing the uneven pigment. IPL photofacial is also an effective treatment for broken veins and spider veins.

Fraxel Laser: Fraxel is a non-invasive laser treatment that improves tone, texture, and radiance for aging, sun damaged or scarred skin. It also is effective on fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is ideal for those who want to look younger without dramatic changes or extended down time.

It is best to work with a medical aesthetic professional to understand which treatment is best suited for your individual concerns and the preferred method for skin rejuvenation.
