When you first realize that you could look younger with skin rejuvenation, you may begin to search for common treatments in order to choose the one that works best for you. Our team can help you to make the right choice so that you do not feel like you have to do it alone. Understanding how some of these treatments work can make the decision-making process go a little smoother.
When those unwanted lines and wrinkles begin to show up, it is likely because of a reduction in the amount of collagen that is present. This is the substance in the skin that provides fullness and keeps it tight. The body produces it naturally, but the rate at which it does slows with age. As a result, the skin will become loose. That’s when the wrinkles begin to form. You may also notice some sagging around the jowls.
Many skin rejuvenation treatments are designed to stimulate the growth of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. Doing so will return the collagen to the higher levels that were present during youth. As a result, the skin will tighten once again and make the lines, wrinkles and sagging disappear.
Of the available treatment methods, laser therapy is among the most widely used. Another method that uses concentrated light pulses is intense pulsed light treatments, or IPL therapy for short. Other treatment methods are available that generate carefully controlled heat in the dermis in order to stimulate collagen production.
Chemical peels are another popular skin rejuvenation treatment. During this treatment, a special solution is applied to the skin and allowed to sit for a set amount of time before it is washed off. This treatment can remove dead and old skin cells and stimulate the creation of new and healthy skin. Lines and wrinkles and other textural irregularities can be significantly diminished with these skin rejuvenation treatments.
