Years of sun exposure and facial expression can take a toll on your skin, resulting in lines, wrinkles, and blemishes. Skin care products and sunscreen can help to prevent some signs of aging, but in many cases, a procedure from your plastic surgeon is the only thing that can turn back the clock for younger looking skin! If you want to achieve younger looking skin, ask your surgeon about one of the following procedures:
Using a mildly abrasive tool, microdermabrasion can gently sand the surface of the skin to remove damaged cells. Dead skin can cause a rough texture and leave your face looking dry and dull. Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of scarring, sun spots, discoloration, and stretch marks for a more vibrant skin.
A chemical peel can target deeper layers of the skin, depending on the formula you choose. A lactic acid peel works on the top layers and can exfoliate dead skin cells away to reveal healthier looking skin. This is a great option to treat sun damage, acne, and fine lines, but for more extensive issues, you might choose a peel that targets deeper. A Jessner peel is stronger, going to medium depths for improvements of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and overall complexion. During a Jessner peel, the temporary damage is created to promote new skin growth that looks and feels healthier.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Using targeted laser energy, laser skin resurfacing can remove damaged layers of skin along with imperfection such as acne scars, lines, and wrinkles. After treatment, you will gradually begin to experience new skin growth and collagen production. your new skin will be stronger for an improved, younger appearance.
For some individuals, multiple procedures might be recommended. A plastic surgeon can help determine which option is best for you and your skin concerns. To be on your way to younger looking skin, schedule your consultation with Taylor Plastic Surgery!
