Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What does skin rejuvenation involve?

Skin rejuvenation refers to strategies that trigger your body to produce more elastin and collagen. These natural skin compounds provide your skin with strength and suppleness. Issues addressed by skin rejuvenation include:

  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea
  • Deep wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne and other scarring
  • Melasma

Skin rejuvenation can restore a youthful, radiant quality to your complexion.

What is the age-defying microlift?

This innovative treatment uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and “Cytokine Technology,” a breakthrough treatment in anti-aging, to create a youthful appearance. Cytokine Technology incorporates four different growth factors that are vital to a youthful appearance and have been shown in studies to reduce the signs of skin aging. The treatment requires about three days of downtime, but brings about a revitalized look in about two weeks.

What are IPL photofacials?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy involves using pulses of laser energy to penetrate deep into your skin to dissolve uneven pigmentation caused by the sun, rosacea, melasma, and age. You benefit from approximately 4-6 treatments, and there’s no downtime afterward.

What is microneedling?

For microneedling, your aesthetic specialist uses a special handheld device to glide tiny needles across your skin. The mini holes that are created stimulate your body’s wound-healing processes to build new collagen and elastin. Microneedling is used to treat age spots, wrinkling, and scars. It can also help reduce pore size.

Microneedling also makes your skin temporarily more receptive to the application of topical treatments. This makes microneedling with PRP especially valuable. PRP is made from a sample of your own blood that’s been treated to concentrate the healing platelets. When applied to your skin in conjunction with microneedling, it enhances tightness and smoothness.

What is E-matrix?

E-matrix is a laser skin treatment that improves the appearance of acne scars, treats fine lines and wrinkles, improves textural irregularities, and tightens skin. Treatment requires little to no downtime and is clinically proven safe and effective for all skin types. Most people benefit from about three total sessions.
