While a lucky few people are blessed with perfect skin, most of us have trouble areas we’d love to eradicate. Here are four popular procedures that can improve even the trickiest complexion problems to give you the clear, smooth skin you’ve always wanted.
1. Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing
Fraxel® Dual is an FDA-approved technology that uses a fractional laser to resurface the skin, penetrating deep into the dermis to target and eliminate damaged skin cells while leaving the surrounding cells intact. Fraxel® can be ideal for smoothing acne scars and restoring skin to a glowing, even tone with only minimal discomfort.
2. Laser Facials
Laser Genesis treatment is among the most comfortable skin rejuvenation techniques, as it is non-invasive and non-ablative. The laser gently heats the upper layers of the dermis, allowing the skin to increase collagen production, break down damaged capillaries and shrink pores. Results are often subtle, so many patients opt for several sessions.
Microdermabrasion is a popular, non-invasive treatment that can promote skin cell turnover through controlled exfoliation of the dull outer layer of the skin. This process removes pore-clogging dead skin cells and other impurities that contribute to blemishes. Look for the most advanced crystal-free microdermabrasion technology available, which doesn’t leave the mess and grit of other microdermabrasion options.
4. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a time-tested and cost-effective treatment that can refresh and renew skin. Medical-grade peeling agents are applied to the skin to remove the outermost layer of damaged cells. Peels can be highly customizable based on your complexion needs, and can be especially effective as a means to maintain results of other skin treatments to keep further signs of aging at bay.
