Our Top Three Summer Treatments

This summer is the perfect time to start rejuvenating your skin and restore its youthfulness. Your dermatologist offers a variety of treatments that can help you breathe new life onto your skin. Here are three skin care treatments we recommend that you can do this summer that can definitely help you look younger:

Microdermabrasion – This is a routine skin care treatment that is both non-chemical and non-invasive. What it accomplishes is removing the superficial layer of your skin, which can be dry and filled with dead cells. A microdermabrasion session is done with a machine that uses a stream of crystals or a diamond tip. Those with unevenly pigmented skin, or those that have clog pores can greatly benefit from this treatment. This treatment can not only be done on the face but also on your back, arms and hands. The result is a softer skin texture, with clearer pores and a better and more even complexion.

Platelet-Rich Plasma – also known as the “vampire facelift”, this treatment utilizes components that originate from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from your veins and placed in a centrifuge that separates each layered component. The Red and white blood cells are separated from the platelets and the clear fluid called plasma. Now the plasma found in your blood contains a concentrated amount of platelets, and these platelets are the cells in your blood that help promote tissue healing and regeneration of fresh cells. Your dermatologist will inject the PRP to different areas of the skin using a microneedling device. This then increases collagen production in your body, allowing your skin tissues to regenerate faster. As a result, you will ahve smoother and tighter skin, with softer appearance of wrinkles and a better skin tone.

Dermal Fillers – Dermal fillers are FDA-approved cosmetic injectables that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your facial area. Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural-occuring substance actually found in your own body. It is used to improve the skin’s contour and reduce any lines, depressions and deep scarring.This includes acne scars, crow’s feet lines, frown lines, lip borders, depressions on your cheeks, and also worry lines on your forehead. Examples of dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid are Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane. These fillers make your skin look more plump by adding extra volume, and give a younger-looking appearance as well. These fillers are relatively safe and you have minimal downtime.
