As you age, your skin begins to tell a story: the days you spent in the sun, the difficult times of puberty, significant weight gain or loss, etc. Without a doubt, your face becomes physical evidence of a life well lived. But signs of aging can be worrying. Fortunately, there are several facial rejuvenation techniques. Here we will tell you about some.
The goal of facial rejuvenation
Facial rejuvenation processes are intended to improve the appearance of your skin, including skin care products, treatments, and in-office procedures. All facial rejuvenation seeks to reveal younger, smoother skin.
The main goal of rejuvenation is to remove damaged cells on the surface of the skin with different techniques, including lasers, light treatments and acids
Some examples of skin rejuvenation are:
Chemical peels use a variety of different formulas that can be used on the entire face or just on certain areas for a specific period of time. The chemical solution is applied to the skin and will cause it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new skin is smoother and less wrinkled. Depending on the type of chemistry, recovery may take a few weeks.
Dermabrasion is another way to treat the skin in a controlled manner, but this method uses a gentle abrasive that is diamond tips and not chemicals. A rapidly rotating tool is used to remove and level the top layers of skin. The treated skin will disappear and new skin will grow to take its place, this is known as cell renewal.
Recovery time is determined by how many layers of skin were removed or how “deep” the procedure was.
Laser rejuvenation uses targeted light energy and heat to treat thin sections of skin. The laser will remove the top layer of skin while heating the underlying layers. This stimulates the growth of new collagen, elastin and reticulin fibers resulting in new skin growth that is much smoother.
One of the benefits of laser resurfacing is that it causes little damage to the surrounding skin, making it ideal for use on sensitive areas. Depending on the type of laser used, recovery can be anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
