In most cases, when cosmetic doctors talk about skin rejuvenation, they are referring to energy devices such as lasers or IPL (intense pulsed light), chemical peels or collagen induction therapies such as microneedling.
Some of the skin conditions that can be treated using skin rejuvenation include signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, sun spots, or visible blood vessels. In some cases, skin rejuvenation benefits patients whose skin has lost it firmness and tone.
Some of the main treatment modalities used for skin resurfacing included the following therapies:
- Laser resurfacing (ablative and non-ablative)
- Mechanical resurfacing, such as dermabrasion or microdermabrasion
- Microneedling with and without radiofrequency
- Chemical peel
- Injectable products, such as neuromodulators, fillers, biostimulators or platelet-rich plasma injections
Any of the above products can be introduced to address specific facial needs, including the upper lip or around the eyes. Skin rejuvenation techniques can also be used to improve an uneven complexion or a pigmentation disorder. Rejuvenation can even extend to the loss of eyelashes.
What you will receive as a treatment will be based on your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Most skin rejuvenation treatments require a multi-modality approach and a series of treatments to realize the best results. Most importantly, you, as the patient, need to be fully committed to proceeding with a treatment plan.
