Skin rejuvenation therapy describes any treatment or procedure that makes the skin look more attractive or youthful. While the phrase is often used interchangeably with “skin resurfacing,” the latter actually refers to procedures that remove the topmost layer or layers of the skin so that a new and pristine layer can replace it. Skin resurfacing is thus a type of skin rejuvenation.
Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation
Many skin rejuvenation treatments stimulate the production of collagen, which is a protein that gives skin its structure and strength. It also helps replace dead skin cells. As people get older, the body produces less collagen, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle. Stimulating collagen production reduces wrinkles and makes the skin more taut.
Examples of Skin Rejuvenation Therapy
Photo rejuvenation uses lasers, pulses of light, or light diodes in its treatment. The light used from the devices is safely absorbed within the skin layers to produce more collagen. As we go through the aging process our body produces less collagen, thus creating sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines.
In a chemical peel, our practitioner uses a prepared solution to exfoliate the skin. The solution causes the topmost layer or layers of the skin to safely peel off, revealing an unblemished new layer. Chemical peels remove wrinkles, blemishes and discolorations. There are several types of chemical peels and they range in power and intensity from the superficial peel to the deep peel. To find out what options you have in chemical peels, you can contact our office in Clermont.
Thermal rejuvenation renews the skin by utilizing heat in its applicators. Our practitioner uses a specialized device that applies and emits radio frequency energy that penetrates the skin and stimulates collagen production, which makes the skin smoother and more elastic. The radio frequency energy will penetrate the deeper layers of skin, be absorbed, and gradually lift the skin giving it a more taut and full look. This type of skin rejuvenation therapy can be used to minimize wrinkles and fine lines as well as fix any sagging or drooping of the skin.
