Importance of Skin Care

I’ve considered facial surgery but I feel skin care has pushed that off. The younger you start the better off you are. I wish I had started earlier.

Why Skin Care

People may see the need for plastic surgery but don’t always understand the why skin care provided by a plastic surgeon supervised esthetician is important. The epidermis is in a constant state of renewal completely replacing itself. As we age this process slows down and becomes less effective causing thicker less resilient skin. Also damage from the environment (sun, stress and pollution) cause skin to lose its ability to ‘renew’ itself properly and slowing the flow of moisture from within, resulting in dry uneven skin texture and wrinkles.

Peels – IPL – Fraxel

Biomedic Micro Peels, Silk Peels and Micro-Dermabrasion work to revitalize the process of exfoliation. By more quickly removing the older layer of dead skin they help in making this process more effective and uniform. Because they are milder than other chemical peels you can return to work or shopping within minutes. Intense Pulsed Light improves the appearance of photo-aged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo-rejuvenation.

For thicker skin, Fraxel® Laser Treatment (FLT) produces the benefits laser skin resurfacing (performed with a CO2 laser) without the downtime, side effects and lengthy recovery period. FLT produces thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment in your skin. This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deeply into the dermis.
