Treatments That Boost Skin Health, Repair, and RejuvenationSkincare treatments help people suffering from acne, blotchiness, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, or fine lines. Even those with the most sensitive skin can get the treatment they want and need from a medical esthetician. A medical esthetician is trained to deal with all skin types and can help with even the most challenging skin problems. From facials to peels to microdermabrasion to laser treatments, an esthetician has an arsenal of skin health therapies, procedures, and products to help some of the most sophisticated skin issues. Skincare treatments can help you feel younger without invasive and potentially harmful cosmetic surgery.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle approach that can be performed on all skin types and age groups. It renews but encouraging the turnover of skin cells. As people age, this auto-replacement of the outer skin layer slows. This slowing can leave the skin looking dull and uneven. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that removes the skin’s top layers, uncovering the more vital skin underneath. Microdermabrasion treatments are performed at regular intervals— monthly or more often. They help soften lines on the face, neck, chest, arms, back, and hands. Repeated microdermabrasion treatments may even improve the appearance of pores and superficial scars.
These procedures use a chemical solution to cause wrinkled, unevenly pigmented, blotchy, blemished, or sun-damaged facial skin to peel away. Individual maintenance peels can be repeated depending on the response of the skin. Some findings suggest that the results of chemical peels are more pronounced after the second or third peel. Peels are non-irritating. No anesthetic is needed. However, many patients feel a tingling sensation during the chemical peel application. No recuperation time is required—patients can return to work and regular activity and even apply makeup immediately afterward.
Skin Rejuvenation and RepairInvasive surgery is not needed for skin repair. Laser remodeling and other skin rejuvenation and repair treatments are effective forms of wrinkle treatment. They can also help to smooth out other skin blemishes and imperfections. The benefits of skin repair include these and more:
- An evening out of skin tone
- Wrinkle reduction
- Fading and clearing of age spots
- Redness reduction
- Firmer and smoother skin
