There are different options for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing procedures for the face. Almost all of the different procedures can be done on any area of the face whether it is around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, or chin. There is minimal discomfort and downtime associated with skin resurfacing treatments, making them a popular choice for those who wish to brighten and enhance the appearance of their face.
Laser skin resurfacing is used by plastic surgeons to reduce facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. The latest in laser technologies gives plastic surgeons a new level of control in laser resurfacing, allowing for extreme precision – which is especially beneficial for the delicate areas of the face. Laser resurfacing uses concentrated pulsating beams of light that removes unwanted, damaged skin one layer at a time. The laser beam used will remove the outer layer of skin while also heating the underlying skin layer. This works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers, so that as the skin heals it is smoother and firmer.
Dermabrasioin is used to “refinish” the skin’s top layer through a method of controlled surgical scraping. Dermabrasion is used to smooth out fine facial wrinkles, and it can also be used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratosis. Dermabrasion can be used on the entire facial area, and it is a favorite for those seeking a very “quick fix”.
A chemical peel can be used on the face to smooth the texture of the skin by removing damaged outer layers. It is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of the facial skin, as well as the skin on the neck and hands. Chemical peels are used to help improve the appearance of acne scars, age and liver spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and other areas of concern.
