The aging of our skin is multifactorial such as lifestyle, diet, hereditary, and personal habits. The primary factors contributing to wrinkles, spotted skin include normal aging, sun exposure, loss of subcutaneous support, stress, gravity, daily facial movement, obesity and even sleep position. Skin changes that often come with age include: benign lemons (tumors) or/and skin becomes rougher, dry, slack, transparent, fragile and easily bruised.
Dermal fillers are natural substances called Hyaluronic acids that can be injected under the skin to soften the deep wrinkles and skin creases from loss of collagen and elasticity and fill areas of volume loss to help restore facial plumpness and contours.
Pre- and post treatment: hold off on any Motrin/Ibuprofen/ Advil/NSAIDs
Price: varies depending on type of filler
Fractional laser is a device that delivers precise micro-beams of laser light to the lower layers of the skin creating deep narrow columns of tissue coagulation while leaving parts of the skin intact. Coagulated tissue in the treated area will stimulate a natural healing process that result in growth of healthy new tissue containing collagen and elastin. The procedure can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. There is minimal discomfort and 1-2 days of downtime with the treatment . The results are long lasting but a series of treatments may be required to achieve the desired results. Fractional laser treatments are effective for fine lines.
Pre- and Post treatment care: sun protection and avoidance, avoid any type of exfoliation or chemical peels. Use a gentle skin moisturizer and facial wash to keep the skin calm and hydrated.
Price: starts at $400 per treatment
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure involving superficial and controlled puncturing of the skin by gliding a pen containing miniature needles. The micro-punctures creates micro-injuries that lead to minimal superficial bleeding and trigger a wound healing cascade with release of various growth factors which will result in new collagen formation and skin tightness. Microneedling works well for fine lines. In particular, it’s a very safe procedure in dark skin type due to low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The down time is minimal for microrneedling.
Pre- and Post treatment care: sun protection and avoidance, avoid any type of exfoliation or chemical peels, and use of gentle skin moisturizer and facial wash to keep the skin calm and hydrated.
Price: starts at $200 per treatment
