Micro-Needling: Micro-Needling is a form of collagen induction therapy intended to smooth wrinkles, improve depressed acne scarring as well as reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The micro-needling device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
Fractional CO2 laser: Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can erase years from your face and dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles and skin pigment. Fractional CO2 lasers excel at treating deeper wrinkles, more severe textural changes from sun damage, wrinkles, blotchiness, acne scars and surgical or traumatic scars. It can even be used on the delicate eyelid skin and around the mouth.
Fraxel® laser skin treatments: Fraxel is a laser skin rejuvenation treatment that resurfaces your outer skin, erasing imperfections. It also encourages the production of collagen which is instrumental in maintaining firm, youthful, healthy-looking skin. Fraxel is one of the most advanced laser wrinkle treatments for the face available today.
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening: Radio frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin. This technology involves targeting the energy which is from a radiofrequency source rather than a light source to heat up the deeper layers of the skin.
Chemical peel: A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Chemical peels can improve the skin’s appearance. In this wrinkle treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin.
