Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:44:16 GMTMicrodermabrasion In microdermabrasion, a special machine applies a slightly rough applicator tip (either composed of tiny rough particles or a diamond tip) to the surface of the skin of the face or neck to remove the uppermost layer of skin. This results in a smoother skin texture. The procedure is painless and non-invasive. Multiple sessions may be required in some cases. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:42:50 GMTLaser Resurfacing <p>Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers work by producing an intense beam of bright light that travels in one direction. The laser beam can gently vaporize and/or ablate skin tissue to improve wrinkles, scars and blemishes, seal blood vessels or cut skin tissue.<br />The laser has the unique ability to produce one specific color (wavelength) of light, which can be varied in its intensity and pulse duration. The newest laser systems have become remarkably precise and selective, allowing treatment results and safety levels not previously available.<br /></p> Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:41:27 GMTLaser/light Therapy Laser/light therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses light energy to repair and regenerate damaged skin. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:34:50 GMTDermabrasion <p>From the beginning of time, people suffering from the disfigurement of facial scarring have searched for ways to improve these imperfections. Thanks to refinements of a number of dermatologic surgical techniques, there are several safe, effective procedures available today to improve facial scarring, including dermabrasion or scar abrasion.</p> Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:32:30 GMTChemical Peels <p>Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin which is typically performed on the face, neck or hands. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to "blister" and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.<br /></p> Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:29:28 GMTDermabrasion for Sun-damaged Skin Dermabrasion, sometimes known as dermaplaning, is a procedure that removes sun-damaged skin through controlled surgical scraping. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:21:26 GMTChemical Peels for Sun-damaged Skin Chemical peels improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance.

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:20:17 GMTMicrolipoinjection for Sun-damaged Skin In microlipoinjection, the doctor removes fat from one part of the body and then transfers it to the patient’s sun-damaged skin to re-contour and smooth it. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:16:42 GMTLaser Resurfacing for Sun-damaged Skin Laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a wand-like laser instrument to remove the upper layers of skin. It is sometimes referred to as “laser peeling” since it removes old skin cells in order to reveal newer, more youthful cells. Since the technique uses a laser, an ASDS dermatologist has precise control over the depth of treatment, lessening complications to surrounding tissue. An antibiotic or antiviral medication is sometimes prescribed prior to the procedure. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:16:10 GMTLaser/light Therapy for Sun-damaged Skin Laser/light therapy is a non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy to repair and regenerate skin cells. The procedure reduces the need for medication, improves the outcomes for treated skin conditions and increases the recovery rates of affected tissues. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:15:10 GMTPhotodynamic Therapy for Sun-damaged Skin Photodynamic therapy treats sun-damaged skin and premaliginant growths by using special drugs called photosensitizing agents, along with light, to kill pre-cancerous cells. The drugs only work after being activated by certain wavelengths of light. The process also is known as PDT, phototherapy and photochemotherapy. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:14:37 GMT
