Glowing skin is your best accessory. Clear beautiful skin gives you a vibrant and fresh look that does not need to be retouched or covered up. Patients who want to achieve this turn to Dr. Steven Ip and his skin rejuvenation and resurfacing techniques.
What is skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?
Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing is a collection of processes that aim to give the patient better-looking skin with the use of a variety of cosmetic procedures. Techniques can range from the use of laser technology for skin rejuvenation, chemical peels to improve the complexion, and other non-ablative procedures that ultimately give the patient the best skin they can have.
Why should I consider skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments?
Our skin is our first line of protection from all the things that are going on in the world around us. Dust and dirt in the air, pore-clogging grime, acne-inducing humidity, and other environmental factors all contribute to skin aging, dryness, and overall deterioration. Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can help restore the skin’s youthful appearance by facilitating skin renewal in conditions that require it the most. These conditions include the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation due to excessive sun exposure, scarring do to acne and other conditions, vascular lesions, and loss of skin tone due to aging.
How does skin rejuvenation and resurfacing work?
To effectively improve the skin’s condition, skin rejuvenation and resurfacing reduces the intensity of the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the patient’s face. It may also be used specifically to address these concerns in isolated areas of the face such as around the eyes or along the upper lip.
To treat sunspots, age spots, or other pigmentation disorders, doctors may also employ chemical peels, light treatments, or the use of laser energy to reinvigorate the skin by promoting the resurfacing of new skin cells.
Scarring due to acne or other skin conditions can effectively be reversed using laser skin resurfacing, or mechanical resurfacing methods such as dermaplaning or dermabrasion. Choosing the best type of procedure for the patient will depend upon the extent of scarring that needs to be corrected, as well as the patient’s skin color and overall skin type.
What should you expect after skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment?
When you have received your specific skin rejuvenation resurfacing treatment, the doctors will give you instructions on how to better take care of the treated skin. The results obtained with these techniques will vary, depending on the type of treatment used and the extent of the rejuvenation required. Progressive improvement is expected after skin rejuvenation and resurfacing, and patients must not be alarmed if they do not see the full effect immediately. The final result of skin rejuvenation and resurfacing is a beautifully improved skin that is clearer, smoother, and younger looking.
