Skin Resurfacing Tailored to Your Unique Concerns
Aging, acne, scarring, and other factors can cause your skin to develop a rough or uneven texture. Poor skin texture can make your skin look dull and can be difficult or even impossible to camouflage with makeup. At The Medical Skin Clinic, we offer several skin resurfacing treatments to give you smoother, more youthful skin with minimal downtime.
Dermalinfusion is a non-invasive facial treatment that performs three actions simultaneously to provide clearer, softer skin in about 30 minutes. The patented, diamond-tipped wand gently exfoliates while pneumatic suction is used to remove debris from your pores. At the same time, the skin is infused with serums that are tailored to your unique skin needs. Dermalinfusion requires no downtime and is safe for all skin tones. Your skin will be glowing immediately after treatment, and you can see long-term improvement when you undergo a series of sessions.
Dry, rough skin and fine hair (vellus hair) on the face can clog the pores and make the application of cosmetics more challenging. Dermaplaning uses a surgical blade that is gently scraped over the skin to remove these fine hairs and outer layers of dead skin without downtime. This treatment is safe and effective, even for women who are pregnant or nursing. The result is smoother, softer skin that absorbs skincare products more easily. Because vellus hair is removed, makeup goes on smoother as well.
For patients who may need more intensive resurfacing, DermaPeel may be a good treatment option. This procedure combines the benefits of dermaplaning with a chemical peel tailored to your needs for more comprehensive improvement. Dermaplaning is performed first to exfoliate and make the skin more receptive to the chemical peel. Then a chemical solution is applied to your face to smooth the skin further and stimulate collagen production. The solution is neutralized after a set amount of time. The final step is the application of a ZO® Skin Health Skin Brightening Sheet Mask to soothe and hydrate your skin.
Halo™ Laser Resurfacing
Halo™ harnesses the power of light energy to address wrinkles, fine lines, poor texture, acne scarring, and other concerns. The laser penetrates the skin using multiple wavelengths to provide both ablative and non-ablative rejuvenation. Treatment can be customized to your needs, and your skin will be recovered in a few days. The laser energy heats the underlying layers of the skin, which also stimulates collagen production. The number of sessions required will depend on your treatment plan, which will be discussed during your consultation appointment.
What About Hyperpigmentation?
Although poor skin texture can cause you to look older, pigmentation issues may also have an impact on your appearance. However, there are treatments available to help make your skin tone more even and enhance your resurfacing results.
SkinPen® Microneedling uses fine needles to create micro-channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s healing response. This process encourages the production of collagen and new skin cells to provide smoother, more youthful skin.
Forever Young™ BBL
Photorejuvenation can also be used to correct hyperpigmentation. The Forever Young™ BBL photofacial uses broadband light energy to reduce the appearance of sun damage, age spots, redness, and other issues quickly and without affecting the surrounding healthy tissues.
