Have the effects of stress, sun damage or aging left your skin looking dull, wrinkled or coarse? Many of us can admit it is difficult to give our skin the TLC it needs.
Charles S. Lee, MD, and the rest of the team at Enhance® Medical Center offer a range of treatment options to rejuvenate your complexion and help you fall in love with your skin again. Read on as we reveal some of our most popular options.
A chemical peel addresses common pigment or texture imperfections and unveils a smoother, softer complexion. A topical solution is applied to the skin, causing the top layer of dead cells to peel off in the coming days. As the skin peels, fresh, healthy cells are uncovered.
During a microneedling treatment, a needle-tipped device is passed over the skin to create tiny puncture wounds and trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Our office performs Vivace microneedling, wherein radiofrequency energy is delivered to the deep layers of the skin through the puncture wounds. The combination of the radiofrequency and microneedling offers more dramatic results than what can be achieved through microneedling alone.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
IPL technology harnesses light energy to combat aged or imperfect skin. Pulses of broad-spectrum visible light are delivered through the surface of the skin to break up unwanted pigment and shrink broken blood vessels. In the days and weeks following treatment, dark spots disappear and the skin looks healthy and radiant.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you are worried about more severe wrinkles or areas of sun damage, laser skin resurfacing may be the better option. Laser skin resurfacing can be ablative, wherein it removes the entire outer layer of skin to uncover healthy skin cells. Or, it can be non-ablative, wherein it produces a heat response in the deep tissues to kickstart the collagen production process.
ThermiTight uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production for tighter, smoother skin. It is generally used to cover larger treatment areas.
