Besides aging, various other damaging environmental factors, such as the sun, wind, and pollutants, can affect the outermost layers of the skin. This aging and environment-related damage can harm the skin in a cumulative way over time.
This compounded damage can take a visible toll on the health and appearance of the skin, while also leading to a wide array of irregularity and texture related problems. Patients seeking to rejuvenate their skin in a non-surgical way can choose from various skin resurfacing treatment options.
Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey R. Keyes provides safe and proven skin rejuvenation treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding communities.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
This skin resurfacing procedure involves delivering fractionated CO2 laser pulsate light beams into the impacted skin layers. The treatment uses the power of thermal energy to heat the underlying skin layers or dermis. This promotes the generation of collagen.
Collagen is a protein that is vital for the development of healthy, new skin cells. High collagen levels enable the skin to appear smooth, even, and youthful.
This is a non-surgical treatment that targets the affected skin precisely allowing the preservation and protection of the delicate facial and neck skin. Additionally, laser resurfacing prevents potential aberrations such as hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation from occurring.
How does it Work?
Laser skin resurfacing techniques involve the use of fractionated CO2 lasers to eliminate the uppermost layers of compromised skin in a precise manner to reveal beautiful, more youthful skin.
The benefit of a fractionated laser beam is that the light is rapidly pulsed allowing for minimal heat exposure to the skin and enabling the normal surrounding tissue to be preserved.
A new dimension has been added to the field of cosmetic dermatology with the introduction of injectable dermal fillers. These soft tissue fillers create almost immediate facial rejuvenation and treat fine line and wrinkles in targeted sites.
Dermal fillers can correct skin laxity by enhancing tissue volume (such as in temple, lip, chin, or cheek augmentation), mitigating wrinkles, and improving the overall facial contour.
The primary component in Juvederm dermal filler gel is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a non-animal, biosynthesized compound. HA does not contain allergens which can cause adverse responses in some patients.
Juvederm offers the same cosmetic benefits as animal-based fillers. But it does so without the risk of allergic responses. It is available in various concentrations to address different types of facial wrinkles and creases.
Restylane contains biodegradable HA, and it is quite similar to Perlane. But its primary use is for the treatment of wrinkles and facial contouring instead of lip enhancement.
Restylane effects can sustain for up to six months. It has become a popular non-invasive cosmetic dermatology treatment today due to its high safety profile and effective outcomes.
Radiesse is an injectable soft tissue filler comprising microspheres of phosphate and calcium ions. These ions develop naturally in the body. Thin tissue development occurs around the microspheres after Radiesse is injected.
This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and produces semi-permanent support scaffolding for the skin. The outcomes of Radiesse can last for up to two years or more. But periodic touch-ups may be necessary.
