As we age, it’s not only wrinkles that can make skin look dull and tired. Our skin changes – it becomes thinner, less elastic and more fragile. Advanced skin rejuvenation treatments go beyond the superficial to treat the underlying causes of ageing skin. These treatments can improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity – resulting in a more youthful appearance.
But with all the options available – laser resurfacing, broadband light, intense pulsed light, microdermabrasion and chemical peels – how do you know which one is right for you? In this article we touch on the various options available on the market today.
Laser resurfacing is an advanced skin rejuvenation technique that can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, and other types of skin damage. Laser resurfacing can be done using different types of lasers, including CO2 lasers, Er:YAG lasers, fractional lasers and hybrid fractional lasers. There are a wide variety of laser devices available today – let’s dive in and find out more about this amazing technology.
The HALO laser is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It delivers both fractional ablative and non-ablative laser wavelengths in the same pass, treating both the damage you can and cannot see at the same time. HALO is clinically and statistically proven to provide the best results of any non-ablative or fractional laser on the market today. Patients can enjoy the optimal results for their skin type, condition, and aesthetic goals.
The MOXI laser is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. The MOXI laser uses a unique wavelength of light to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help improve the appearance of the skin. The MOXI laser is safe for all skin types and has been shown to be highly effective in improving the appearance of the skin.
Broadband Light Therapy
Broadband light therapy, or BBL, is another non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can help improve the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
The treatment uses a device that emits multiple wavelengths of light that are absorbed by different chromophores in the skin. This helps to improve collagen production and cell turnover, resulting in brighter, smoother skin.
Broadband light therapy is safe, effective and can be used on all skin types. It is a quick and easy procedure with minimal downtime, making it an ideal choice for busy people who want to achieve radiant skin.
BBL Hero is a powerful device that uses BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy to deliver remarkable results. BBL Hero is clinically proven to improve the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. It can also be used to treat acne and other skin conditions. The best part about BBL Hero is that it is safe for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
Intense pulsed light therapy or IPL is a non-invasive, safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of sun-damaged, ageing skin.
IPL therapy uses a broad-spectrum light source to target specific areas of the skin, such as the face, neck, chest and hands. The light energy is absorbed by the skin cells and converted into heat energy, which destroys the damaged cells.
This process stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres, which leads to a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. IPL therapy also improves the overall texture and tone of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation technique that uses fine crystals to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This process reveals newer, healthier skin cells and promotes the production of collagen, resulting in a more youthful appearance. The procedure can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. However, microdermabrasion is not without risks. The most common side effect is skin irritation. Other risks include infection, changes in skin colour, and scarring.
A chemical peel is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses a chemical solution to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. Chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, and other skin imperfections. The results of a peel can last for several months, but multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.
There are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial peels are the most common and can be done in a spa or salon. Medium peels require more time to heal, but provide better results. Deep peels should only be performed by a licensed professional and can cause significant irritation.
Chemical peels can cause burns, scarring, and changes in skin colour. They can also make your skin more sensitive to the sun. If you have a history of cold sores, you may be more likely to experience them after a chemical peel.
If you are considering any of these advanced skin rejuvenation treatments as a way to improve your skin health and appearance, be sure to consult with a dermatologist or other qualified skincare professional to ensure it is the right treatment for you.
