Dull skin, fine lines, acne, and uneven pigmentation can make you look tired and feel like you’re not at your best. At The Medical Skin Clinic, we offer several skin rejuvenation treatments to help you get your glowing complexion back. The best treatment for you will depend on your goals and preferences, as well as the recommendations made during your consultation appointment.
Dermaplaning is a simple, safe procedure that is an excellent deep exfoliation option that is even safe for women who are pregnant or nursing. Dermaplaning is used to treat the following:
- Rough, dry skin
- Superficial hyperpigmentation
- Mild acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
A surgical blade (scalpel) is carefully scraped over the skin to remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning allows skincare products to penetrate the skin more readily, allows for easier application of makeup, and results in a smoother, more refined complexion.
Patients may experience some slight redness after treatment, but this should resolve quickly. There is no downtime or recovery period required.
Diamond Glow is an advanced skin resurfacing treatment that simultaneously exfoliates, extracts impurities, and infuses condition-specific serums to improve skin health and appearance. Diamond Glow is a patented, fully customizable, non-invasive procedure that is safe for all skin tones and types. The treatment is the perfect solution to a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Signs of aging
- Dry skin
- And more!
The Diamond Glow device uses diamond tips to exfoliate the skin and while also extracting oil and dirt from the pores using suction. The device handpiece infuses the skin with specially formulated Pro-Infusion serums that are chosen based on specific skin concerns. By performing all three actions simultaneously, Diamond Glow allows for optimal skin rejuvenation. The treatment is gentle enough for sensitive areas of the face, including the lips and around the eyes. Patients will immediately see skin that is smoother, plumper, and more radiant. There is no downtime associated with the procedure.
A series of Diamond Glow treatments may be recommended for prolonged rejuvenation effects.
SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is the first and only FDA-approved microneedling device. Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is used to reduce common signs of aging and other skin issues, such as:
- Wrinkles and skin laxity
- Sun damage
- Thin skin density
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone and texture
Fine needles are used to create micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulate the healing process in the skin, increasing the production of collagen and elastin.
Minor discomfort can be expected, but this can be eased with a topical anesthetic. Downtime is minimal and usually presents as mild irritation and redness of the skin for one to three days. For best results, a series of treatments spaced four to six weeks apart are recommended. Results are seen gradually over several weeks as the body generates new collagen.
SkinPen® Microneedling with PRP
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is often used in combination with microneedling to stimulate the production of new collagen, improve your body’s healing response, and regenerate skin cells. Microneedling with PRP has been shown to have an impressive effect when helping individuals improve concerns on the face and décolleté such as:
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage
- Poor skin tone and texture
Your blood will be drawn by a nurse and spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP, which contains a high concentration of platelets and other growth factors. The plasma is then applied to your face and neck during your microneedling session. The micro-injuries caused by the microneedling procedure allow your skin to absorb the PRP and begin to regenerate new skin cells, resulting in an improved appearance and healthy glow.
You may experience minor discomfort during treatment, which can be alleviated with a topical anesthetic. Downtime is minimal, but usually includes mild redness and irritation that lasts for one to three days. PRP is a regenerative process. Results will begin to appear three to four weeks after treatment and continue to improve over time. For optimal results, three treatment sessions spaced one to two months apart are generally recommended.
Photorejuvenation treatments use light energy to correct signs of aging and other skin concerns, including acne, sun damage, spider veins, and fine lines and wrinkles. These light-based technologies allow for quick, non-invasive procedures for rejuvenation without surgery.
