Facial Skin Care Treatments - Facial Rejuvenation

 
 
Modern technology has allowed skin care to advance so that we can now eliminate many of the aging signs that can be caused from the environment, your lifestyle, and your genes. These days, there are many different types of facial rejuvenation to help you eliminate and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as help with many skin problems that include rosacea, acne so that the patient can enjoy a natural and healthy look for years to come.

Blue Light Therapy for Acne

Blue light therapy acne therapy is commonly used to help reverse the mild or moderate acne vulgaris and can even successfully prevent this issue. Blue light therapy for acne are often given one time weekly for a period of four weeks up to as many as eight weeks, depending on how severe the acne is and the results that the patient sees. This sort of treatment only causes side effects rarely and is not damaging to the skin.

Chemical Peel

The chemical peel is also called chemexfoliation (derma-peeling). It is a common technique for skin care of the face where a chemical solution is put on the skin to make it form blisters and then peel off. The fresh, new skin that is revealed is often less wrinkled and much smoother than the skin that was removed. A temporary side effect of this treatment is that the new skin will be much more sun sensitive.

IPL™ Photofacial

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™): this is a treatment to help rejuvenate the facial skin. It can be used to treat facial aging, sun damage and heredity. Imperfections on the skin including uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, brown spots, facial veins, rosacea and large pores can be visibly improved with a Photofacial treatment. You will experience very little or no downtime after a treatment, and you can immediately get back to your daily life after this type of treatment.

Laser Resurfacing of the Skin

Laser skin resurfacing works to remove the outer skin layers that have uneven pigmentation or are damaged. The resurfacing laser helps to stimulate the body to produce more collagen and promote the healing of the lower layers of facial skin. Laser skin resurfacing is often used to help reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles of the neck and face. You will find that this procedure can offer a smooth, fresh and even complexion that you seek. You can visit a qualified SpaHub skin care specialist to find out if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.

Skin Tightening With Laser

Laser skin tightening is a type of treatment for wrinkle removal that is quite advanced. It uses the infrared light of a laser to help to help tighten the skin without the need for surgery. The light heats the layers of skin below the surface to help stimulate the production of collagen to help the skin become tighter. Many people feel that this is a good option if a face lift is not desired, because this procedure does not require downtime, scalpels or anesthesia.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an effective way to reduce and remove light acne scars and age spots. It is often referred to as the “lunchtime” treatment for wrinkles because it is done quickly in your dermatologist’s office. When offering a treatment, the dermatologist will use and instrument to administer tiny crystals onto the facial skin. These crystals help to exfoliate the upper layers of the skin, and gentle suction helps to remove the excess crystals and skin cells that have been sloughed off. As is the case for many different types of facial rejuvenation, it might be necessary to have more than one microdermabrasion session to get the effects you seek.

Cosmetic Tattooing

Today, lots of women are choosing to have permanent makeup applied to their faces as a way to add to the effects of their treatments for facial rejuvenation. Permanent makeup makes it possible to skip the need to apply makeup every day and is sometimes called micropigmentation. For those who choose this option, the ability to skip the makeup routine and money saving benefits are worth it.

PDT - Photodynamic Therapy

In recent times, photodynamic therapy (PDT) has become an effective way to reduce the lesions that occur with acne on the face. In this procedure, light wavelengths are used to kill the bacteria that cause acne. The most common PDT skin care procedure starts with a microdermabrasion to help remove dead skin, and then a type of acid called aninolevulinic acid is put on the skin to help make the laser more effective. At this time, the affected skin is exposed to the wavelengths of light to go deep into the skin and kill the bacteria that causes acne.

Portrait® Plasma Regeneration for the Skin

Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration is a totally new type of facial skin care. It doesn’t use radio frequency, laser or any technology that is based on light. The Plasma that is referred to is nitrogen based and is applied to the skin surface. This material helps to create heat below the surface of the skin to promote skin regeneration. A Portrait® plasma skin treatment commonly takes only about ten or fifteen minutes, but results last for quite a long time. This treatment offers noticeable improvement in the tone of the skin, texture, pigmentation and reduces wrinkles. After a Portrait® Plasma Skin treatment, there is no need for downtime, which is unlike some of the stronger treatments for facial rejuvenation.

Thermage®

Thermage® is a facial rejuvenation method that does not exfoliate the skin. It has been developed to help improve the facial contours and tighten the skin on the neck and face. These visible improvements are obtained with a device that administers radiofrequency to the face. The tip comes in contact with the surface of the skin. Radio waves are controlled to reach the deep skin layers and stimulate new collagen to develop. As a result, smoother, tighter skin begins to emerge. Thermage® is unlike laser treatments because it can treat all types of skin and does not require any downtime. It is often possible to see the benefits right away and they are quite long lasting.
