If you want to look younger or simply rejuvenate your skin, you might want to look into the services offered at our state-of-the-art medical spa. You can find a selection of methods that can be employed to get rid of lines and wrinkles, age spots and other signs of aging. You can also deal with other unwanted skin conditions, such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation and freckles. Understanding how the various treatments work starts with some knowledge about how the conditions that are being treated develop, since many treatments attack the conditions at their source.
Lines and wrinkles can start to form on the face because collagen in the skin starts to diminish when compared to former levels. It is a protein in the skin that helps to provide fullness and make tissue hold together. This keeps the skin tight and wrinkle-free. When collagen decreases, as it does with age, the skin will necessarily become loose and start to sag. Not only does this cause a change in appearance around the jowls, but lines and wrinkles will also form around the eyes, mouth and on the forehead.
Another sign of aging is the formation of dark spots that are scattered across the skin. While they are normally associated with aging, the real cause is overexposure to the rays of the sun on a repeated basis throughout the years. The skin’s natural response to sunlight is to produce extra melanin as a way of protecting itself. Melanin is what produces pigment in the skin. When the cycle is repeated, the melanin will begin to concentrate in spots that do not fade away on their own.
Many of the treatments that are provided at our medical spa are designed to address the signs of aging and other problematic skin conditions in non-invasive ways. Lines and wrinkles can be attacked by stimulating the skin to produce additional collagen. This will restore the levels, and consequently the amount of skin tightness, to what they were in the years of youth.
Injectable treatments can also be used to restore lost facial volume and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Laser therapy is a commonly used method for rejuvenating the skin. It can be done in a variety of ways, depending on the condition you’d like to treat. Other skin rejuvenating treatments are done with the use of pulses of intense light. Some of the same treatment methods that are used for skin tightening are used to eliminate dark spots.
