What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation includes various treatments aimed at restoring your skin condition and skin texture. Skin damage could be a result of an underlying health condition, sun exposure, or a natural sign of aging. There are a number of skin treatments that can help rejuvenate your skin. Non-surgical skin treatment options are milder than a facelift and can target specific areas of your face or body. Popular skin rejuvenation procedures include:
- laser skin resurfacing
- chemical peels
- microdermabrasion and dermabrasion
- IPL (intense pulsed light)
- dermal fillers
- thread lift
- anti-wrinkle injections
How laser skin rejuvenation works
Laser rejuvenation treatments are very popular cosmetic procedures. Laser treatments help with skin tightening and reducing lines and wrinkles by inducing collagen production and cellular renewal. The targeted laser heat reacts with the dermis layer of skin, effectively treating sun damage, skin laxity, acne scars, sunspots, fine lines, age spots, spider veins, melasma and small capillaries.
The laser heat can be adjusted to a comfortable level while still achieving great results. Me Clinic medical grade laser resurfacing will result in improved skin elasticity, new skin cells, and a healthy, glowing complexion.
Who can be treated
If you have fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes or mouth, or on your forehead, you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. The procedure can also improve the appearance of shallow scarring such as acne scars and is a valuable additional treatment for people wanting improvements to non-responsive skin after a facelift. To find out if laser resurfacing is the right cosmetic procedure for you, speak to a qualified and experienced clinician at Me Clinic.
Discover different laser skin resurfacing treatments
Laser skin resurfacing directs short, concentrated beams of light to precisely remove skin layers. This popular procedure is also called lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization. There are two types of lasers used during skin resurfacing procedures:
This type of laser is more invasive but produces the best clinical results. It works by vaporizing the outer layers of the skin, causing the skin to heal and restructure while also increasing collagen production. Ablative lasers can be used to treat acne scarring, pigmentation issues, and unwanted lesions. When the skin heals after the procedure, the new skin that grows is tighter and smoother and healthier.
These lasers work by heating up targeted tissue without destroying it. Collagen production is stimulated to improve unwanted skin imperfections such as fine lines or wrinkles. Because they are not as invasive as ablative lasers, multiple treatment sessions are necessary to achieve satisfactory results. However, non-ablative laser benefits include almost no downtime and a reduced risk of undesirable side effects.
Other popular skin rejuvenation treatment options
Me Clinic offers a comprehensive range of skin rejuvenation treatment options. Here are just a few more of our available procedures.
A solution is applied to the outer skin layer. The skin will peel away and new skin will form resulting in a smoother, clearer complexion. A skin peel can remove discolouration and age spots, and improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
Microdermabrasion and Dermabrasion
These two techniques are similar but use varying degrees of intensity. Microdermabrasion treatments use a lightly abrasive instrument that gently sands your skin, removing the thick or uneven outer layer. This treatment can improve the appearance of scarring, discolouration, sun damage and stretch marks. Dermabrasion is more intense, using a hand-held rotating instrument to remove the outer layers of skin, usually on the face. It is very useful for treating fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, and uneven skin texture.
This is a minimally invasive procedure using thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of your skin. This helps stimulate your skin to produce more collagen and elastin to keep your skin firm, plump, and smooth. Microneedling is effective on the face, neck, back, legs, or other areas where your skin is damaged or appears aged. Results are best after multiple treatments.
These are injections used to plump up wrinkles and smooth lines on your face, particularly around the eyes, nose, and mouth. This popular cosmetic procedure can produce results right away, and the results can last for months or even years.
Skin rejuvenation after-care
For most skin rejuvenation treatments you will need about 7 to 10 days of downtime while your skin heals and repairs. You will experience some redness which should subside within a few hours. Soreness can be treated by applying ice packs to the treated area for a day or two after the procedure. Take special care when washing your face during this time. You should notice continued skin improvements over the following months.
Use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen to prevent further damage and follow Me Clinic clinician skincare guidelines for the best results for your specific skin type.
