Glowing skin can be achieved with a variety of treatments. Ultherapy, chemical peels, and IPL rejuvenation are great options to choose from to help rejuvenate and improve your skin. Each treatment can be completed within an hour and offers minimal down time. The lasting effects have huge benefits to the patient.
Get Firmer Skin
Ultherapy is a great option for those looking for a non-invasive procedure. This procedure allows the skin to produce more collagen, and that will help tighten the skin. This can assist in eliminating double chins, lifting the brow, and tightening the skin on the neck. This technique is non-invasive because it utilizes FDA-approved ultrasound energy to assist the skin in producing collagen which is a natural firming agent in the body. The energy will stimulate the collagen and, as a result, it will begin to produce more in the target areas. The firmness will eliminate wrinkles and fine lines that appear as the aging process begins. This technique is great because there are no incisions made on the skin, implants inserted or chemicals applied. Ultherapy is a good option for those who have busy schedules because it only needs to be performed once. The collagen will continue to develop over time and the results can last at least one year or longer. The results will be seen within the first six months after the procedure is performed.
Improve the Texture of the Skin
Chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways to change the appearance of the skin. They are usually performed on the face, neck, and hands. A chemical solution is placed on the surface of the skin which will remove the top layers of damaged skin. This helps to smooth out the texture and reveal fresh, new skin that can greatly enhance anyone’s appearance. The chemical peel can improve sun damaged skin, scars, irregular skin pigmentation, freckles, rough skin, lines and wrinkles, age or liver spots, and acne or acne scars. Chemical peels are not able to remove broken capillaries, change the size of the pores, remove deep scars, or remove facial lines. It also is not a method that should be used to tighten loose skin. The type of chemical peel that is needed to improve or enhance the skin will be recommended for you. A light, medium, or deep chemical peel may be needed and all have different side effects. Each level involves a chemical solution being applied to the skin to remove the outer layers of it. The doctor will determine what chemicals will be utilized. The most common chemicals utilized include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, resorcinol, and trichloroacetic acid. These chemicals not only peel away a layer of the skin, but will improve the production of collagen which can help the healthy glow remain. If a light chemical peel is performed the results will be subtle, but with more peels the glow it provides will improve. After a medium peel is performed, the skin will immediately look fresh and glowing. The skin should be smoother immediately. A deep chemical peel will result in the longest recovery but can have stunning results.
The Best of Both Worlds
IPL rejuvenation is a non-invasive way to create smooth skin, and improve melasma, age spots, blood vessels, and freckles. This procedure can also improve the skin’s texture and make it firmer. IPL involves a broadband light that delivers energy to the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. While it delivers the light energy, it does not damage the skin. In addition to the great effects this procedure has on the skin, it can be completed quickly. IPL rejuvenation typically takes less than one hour to perform. No topical numbing cream is usually needed. The IPL will deliver light to specific target areas. The light will pulsate and the high intensity will correct damaged vessels and melanin by breaking them. The procedure can leave the face red in color, and sun exposure to the skin after treatment is not recommended. When IPL rejuvenation is performed, numerous procedures may need to be performed to reach the desired results. Having this procedure completed numerous times will not be harmful.
