Hi merry goers,
Busy days can sometimes show when our complexion starts looking tired and haggard. You might think that skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing are the same thing, and that wouldn't be your fault. Many sources use the terms the wrong way. In reality, skin rejuvenation refers to anything that improves the health of your skin.
There are various types of skin resurfacing methods, which are all forms of skin rejuvenation. However, there are also types of skin rejuvenation that don't involve resurfacing at all. Here's a quick look at some examples of both.
Laser Peels and Other Laser Treatments for the Skin
One of the most versatile ways to rejuvenate your skin is with lasers. That's because Aesthetic Device laser can be used to perform peel procedures, but they can also be used to perform other types of skin treatments. Furthermore, if they are used for peels then the intensity and depth of those peels can be perfectly controlled because lasers are precision machines. Therefore, your clinician can easily treat the exact areas that you need to have corrected and rejuvenated.
Another important aspect of laser treatment is that you can have it done is phases. Some situations call for only a few appointments, but with high-intensity lasers. Other situations may require a series of less invasive laser treatments, but more of them. If you choose to go the laser treatment route then your clinician can recommend what sort of procedure might work best for you and let you know how many treatments you may need.
Acid (Chemical) Peels to Treat Skin Problems
Chemical peels, which are also often known as acid peels because many of them involve the use of specific acids, are less versatile than laser treatments, but they do often offer very fast results. They are also low on side effects, as long as you are a good candidate for them. But if your skin is oily or sensitive then you might want to rejuvenate it using other techniques, instead. Chemical peels can irritate sensitive skin.
Using Microdermabrasion to Improve Skin Health
Another form of peel treatment is microdermabrasion, which is essentially the process of sanding your skin. It involves the use of a tool with a very hard tip that vibrates when it contacts the skin, essentially loosening debris and dead cells and sloughing them off. By peeling away all of that unhealthy material it allows the layer of skin below, which is often healthier, to become the surface layer.
Methods of Skin Rejuvenation Other Than Resurfacing Treatments
There are many ways to rejuvenate your skin without using any sort of peel. However, most of them are not as intense, and therefore they aren't as good at treating severe wrinkles and sags quickly. Many of them may be better at helping you to prevent skin damage. For example, you can often improve your skin health over time by improving your daily exercise routine and eating habits.
Of course, there are also actual clinical treatments that can rejuvenate your skin that don't actually involve resurfacing in. Ultrasound (ultherapy) is one such option. It uses sound waves to stimulate internal healing processes. The best way to choose between all of those options and the many other skincare treatments that are not mentioned here is to do some research and ask experts for advice before you sign up for any skincare procedures blindly.
Anyway, I hope the rest of the week treats you better.
Til next time,
