Skin Rejuvenation

WHAT IS SKIN REJUVENATION

Skin rejuvenation is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance and health of the skin. The goal of skin rejuvenation is to reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging, sun damage, or scars, and to enhance the skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity. Skin rejuvenation can be done on different areas of the body, such as the face, neck, hands, or chest. Depending on the type and extent of the treatment, skin rejuvenation can have different benefits and risks. Some common benefits are smoother, firmer, brighter, and more even-looking skin. Some common risks are redness, swelling, bruising, infection, scarring, or pigment changes. Skin rejuvenation is not a permanent solution and may require multiple sessions or maintenance treatments to achieve the desired results.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Methods we use for Skin Rejuvenation:

(Not sure which method is recommended for you? Contact us for a Free Consultation)

  • Fotona Starwalker
  • Fotona TimeWalker 4D 

Laser skin rejuvenation is a procedure that uses a laser to heat the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity. 

    By increasing collagen, laser skin rejuvenation can improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and other skin conditions. Laser skin rejuvenation is different from laser skin resurfacing, which removes the outer layers of the skin and causes more side effects.

    • Nordlys Candela IPL

    IPL stands for intense pulsed light, a type of light therapy that can help improve the appearance of various skin conditions. IPL works by emitting multiple wavelengths of light that heat and destroy damaged skin cells or hair follicles. The body then removes the damaged tissue naturally, leaving behind smoother and more even skin. IPL can treat wrinkles, spots, scars, spider veins, and unwanted hair on different parts of the body.

    • Chemical Peels

    A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. The new skin is smoother, less wrinkled, and more radiant. Chemical peels can treat various skin conditions, such as acne, scars, sun damage, and aging signs. Chemical peels vary in strength and depth, depending on the type of chemical used and the desired results.

    • Facials

    Facials are a type of skin care treatment that can help with skin rejuvenation. They involve cleansing, exfoliating, massaging, and applying various products to the face. Facials can improve blood circulation, remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, hydrate the skin, and reduce signs of aging. 

    Facials can also relax the facial muscles and improve the mood of the person receiving them.

    • Medical Products

    Medical skin products treat skin rejuvenation by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Collagen and elastin also help repair the damage caused by aging, sun exposure, pollution, and other factors. Medical skin products may contain ingredients such as retinoids, peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and growth factors that target different aspects of skin aging and rejuvenation.

    The treatments can make the skin look smoother, plumper, and more rejuvenated.

    WHAT CAUSES FINE LINES AND WRINKLES 

    Fine lines and wrinkles are common signs of aging that appear on the skin. They are caused by various factors, such as sun exposure, smoking, dehydration, genetics, and facial expressions. Fine lines are shallow and less noticeable, while wrinkles are deeper and more pronounced. Both can be reduced or prevented by using sunscreen, moisturizing, quitting smoking, and avoiding repetitive facial movements.

    WHAT CAUSES SAGGING OF SKIN 

    Skin sagging is a natural process that occurs as we age. The main factors that contribute to skin sagging are loss of collagen and elastin, gravity, sun exposure, smoking, and weight fluctuations. Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide structure and elasticity to the skin. As we age, our body produces less of these proteins, resulting in less firmness and more wrinkles. Gravity also pulls down on the skin over time, causing it to stretch and sag. Sun exposure damages the skin cells and breaks down collagen and elastin, accelerating the aging process. Smoking reduces blood flow to the skin, depriving it of oxygen and nutrients, and also increases the production of free radicals that damage the skin cells. Weight fluctuations cause the skin to stretch and contract repeatedly, weakening its elasticity and making it more prone to sagging.

    WHAT CAUSES SUN DAMAGE

    Sun damage is the result of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or artificial sources. 

    UV rays can damage the skin cells’ DNA, leading to premature aging and skin cancer. Sun damage can cause uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, dryness, sagging, and blood vessel damage on the skin. The best way to prevent sun damage is to avoid excessive sun exposure, especially during peak hours, and use sunscreen and protective clothing.

    WHAT CAUSES AGE SPOTS

    Age spots are small, flat, dark spots on the skin that usually appear on sun-exposed areas, such as the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. They are caused by overactive pigment cells that produce excess melanin, the natural pigment that gives skin its color. Age spots are more common in people older than 40, with fair skin, or with a history of frequent sun exposure or tanning bed use. Age spots are harmless and do not need treatment, but they can be lightened or removed for cosmetic reasons.

    WHAT CAUSES ENLARGED PORES

    Enlarged pores are mainly caused by increased sebum production, which can be influenced by hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, and acne. Other factors that can contribute to enlarged pores are loss of skin elasticity and collagen with age and sun damage. Dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and comedogenic products can also clog and stretch the pores.

    WHAT CAUSES UNEVEN SKIN TONE/TEXTURE

    Uneven skin texture is a common concern that can make the skin look dull, rough, or bumpy. It is often caused by excess dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin, preventing light from reflecting evenly. 

    Other factors that can contribute to uneven skin texture include sun exposure, aging, smoking, acne scarring, hormones, and genetics. To improve uneven skin texture, it is important to exfoliate regularly with gentle scrubs or chemical peels, use sunscreen and moisturizer, and consult a dermatologist for more advanced treatments if needed.

    WHAT CAUSES SKIN DULLNESS

    Skin dullness is a common concern that can affect people of any age, skin type, or complexion. It is characterized by a lack of radiance, smoothness, and evenness in the skin’s appearance. Some of the possible causes of skin dullness are:

    – Sun exposure: The sun’s ultraviolet rays can damage the skin’s collagen and elastin, which are responsible for keeping the skin firm and elastic. Sun exposure can also cause hyperpigmentation, or dark spots, that make the skin look uneven and dull.
    – Pollution: Environmental pollutants can clog the pores and create a layer of dirt and grime on the skin’s surface. This can prevent the skin from reflecting light and make it look dull and tired.
    – Dehydration: The skin needs water to maintain its moisture balance and function properly. When the skin is dehydrated, it can lose its plumpness and elasticity, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness.
    – Aging: As the skin ages, it naturally produces less oil, collagen, and elastin. This can lead to dryness, sagging, and loss of luminosity in the skin. Aging also slows down the skin’s cell turnover rate, which means that dead skin cells accumulate on the surface and make the skin look dull and rough.
