Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation
Dermabrasion and skin peels can be an excellent option for patients interested in removing deep scars and wrinkles. Additionally, both techniques can be administered at different intensities – targeting multiple layers of your skin – in order to meet your needs. Utilizing the appropriate treatment, Dr. Vartanian can help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, and scarring, as well as improve acne and reduce skin oiliness. Both treatments can be very effective at producing softer, smoother skin with long-term results.
Skin Rejuvenation Procedures
Dermabrasion can be particularly effective at addressing deep facial lines and scarring. During your dermabrasion procedure, Dr. Vartanian will gently remove the damaged layers of skin in the targeted areas utilizing a high-speed rotating brush known as a dermabrader, which will work to bring out the healthier layers of skin underneath. Additionally, he will smooth the transition of old skin to new skin around the treated areas in order to produce the most natural-looking results. The depth to which your skin is treated will depend on the extent of wrinkling and scarring. Dermabrasion is generally performed under local anesthesia and can often be combined with dermal fillers and injectables to create a more comprehensive aesthetic makeover.
Skin peels can be a great option for patients seeking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sun spots and age spots. Dr. Vartanian offers several chemical peels – composed of glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol – at various dermal depths in order to provide customized treatment for your specific needs. During the procedure, a skin peel solution will be applied to your face until damaged layers of skin have been removed down to the depth necessary for your goals to be achieved. Dr. Vartanian most commonly uses a medium-depth peel called Rejuvapeel, which has proven to be particularly effective at improving skin texture as well as the appearance of acne and excessive oil production. Treatment times will vary depending on the extent of your needs and the intensity of the peel.
Recovery from Skin Rejuvenation
Recovery and any downtime necessary will depend on your specific treatment. You can generally expect a mild degree of redness in the targeted area following your treatment, and any discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Dr. Vartanian also recommends that you avoid sun exposure and consistently apply doctor-approved moisturizing ointments for about a week to aid the healing process. Treatment areas may remain pink for a while following your procedure, but this coloring should fade over time. Dr. Vartanian will discuss the recovery process for your specific procedure in more detail during your pre-treatment consultation.
