Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Skin rejuvenation techniques can enhance your complexion and restore a radiant skin texture by stimulating your body’s natural healing mechanisms. Numerous techniques, including microdermabrasion, microneedling, and Clear + Brilliant® laser treatment are available to lessen wrinkles and fine lines caused by aging, address blemishes, and reduce acne scarring. Each of these skin care procedures can enhance the structure of your skin to provide a more youthful-looking appearance. Our skin rejuvenation experts at Dermatology, Laser and Surgery of Flatiron can perform microdermabrasion, microneedling, and Clear + Brilliant® laser rejuvenation, depending on your specific needs and goals.
Microdermabrasion can gently exfoliate the surface of your skin to achieve a clearer-looking complexion. Microdermabrasion targets blemishes, age spots, acne scarring, and sun-damaged skin. During microdermabrasion treatment, specialized mineral crystals are applied to the skin through a handpiece. The handpiece passes over the target area, evenly spraying these crystals onto the skin in under 30 minutes. Microdermabrasion can gently clear away skin cells from the surface through exfoliation, stimulating the production of new, healthy skin cells. Microdermabrasion is most commonly used for the face, but can also treat the neck, arms, back, chest, legs, and hands.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, stimulates the production of subsurface collagen and elastin to promote a more youthful-looking skin texture. Microneedling creates tiny punctures in the skin, which encourages your skin’s natural repair mechanisms. New collagen and elastin fibers are created over time, strengthening the epidermis and resulting in smoother-looking skin. Acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and mild sagging of the skin can be reduced during this skin rejuvenation procedure. Microneedling can be used to treat the face, neck, or body in approximately 30-40 minutes per treatment.
Clear + Brilliant®
Clear + Brilliant® is a specialized Diode laser treatment that can target the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin structure. The Clear + Brilliant® laser can treat a variety of different skin types and can be used on the face, neck, hands, chest, back, arms, and legs. During treatment, the Clear + Brilliant® device passes over the target area, delivering laser energy to underlying tissues. This encourages the growth of new collagen fibers which can improve skin elasticity. Different handpieces are available, including the Clear + Brilliant Perméa® device, which can enhance skin permeability, increasing the effectiveness of topical skin care products. Clear + Brilliant treatment can be completed in just 30 minutes.
