What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is a treatment that gives you visibly younger, healthy and glowing skin. It be used to diminish facial wrinkles, fight against the skin ageing process and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Through the use of invasive and non-invasive treatments, skin rejuvenation can help fight the visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles, pigmentation, visible blood vessels, scars and loss of skin tone.
Skin rejuvenation treatments include a wide range of treatments such as laser, light and other energy-based treatments, chemical peels and other non-ablative methods. The following anti-ageing treatments can be used to help rejuvenate your skin:
Microdermabrasion: Particle skin resurfacing or microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical, procedure that uses a highly controlled spray of fine aluminium oxide crystals to remove the outer layer of skin and reveal underlying younger, tighter and more radiant skin.
Facial resurfacing: Facial resurfacing treats skin damage caused by acne, scars, sun damage and ageing. Dermal optical thermolysis (DOT) therapy is a resurfacing treatment used to rejuvenate your skin. It helps to reverse skin damage caused by the sun and ageing, improves skin firmness, smooths out wrinkles and fine lines and also reduces the appearance of acne and scars. This therapy is performed by using the SmartXide™ laser. The DOT therapy creates several minute or microscopic holes (dots) on your skin. The laser penetrates the treated areas, tightens the skin and facilitates the production of new collagen.
Chemical peeling: Chemical peeling causes an even, controlled shedding of several layers of damaged cells. This exposes a newer, fresh layer of skin with more even colouration and a smoother texture. In addition, the peel stimulates new cells to grow, thereby tightening the skin and decreasing wrinkling.
Laser resurfacing: Laser skin resurfacing treatment helps to rejuvenate the skin. It can be sued to treat wrinkles, blemishes, acne scars, lines around eyes and mouth, brown spots and sun-damaged skin. It is a suitable treatment for all skin types. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Erbium (Er:YAG) lasers are commonly used for laser resurfacing. CO2 lasers help in tightening the skin, whereas Er:YAG lasers help in resurfacing the skin.
Laser treatment for sun-spots and marks: The Neodymium (Nd:YAG) laser is a new type of laser for removal of skin spots and marks. It commonly works on all types of skin, even on tanned or darker skin. Nd:YAG lasers are much more precise and less damaging to the skin than some other types of lasers, with less associated pain and smaller recovery times. The Nd:YAG laser is used to treat brown marks and age spots.
Facelift: Facelift surgery can treat the visible signs of ageing such as sagging, drooping and wrinkles on the face and neck. A facelift can be performed solely or in conjunction with nose reshaping, a forehead lift or eyelid surgery.
