What Skin Resurfacing Treatment Can Do and How to Maintain Your Results
Proper skincare can be a frustrating venture. Most at-home methods can help, but they can never give you the results that clinical treatments can provide. Park Avenue Medical Spa offers several options for skin resurfacing to help you get the glowing, smooth complexion you’ve been looking for.
Microdermabrasion is a proven way to remove dead skin cells and other impurities while also stimulating cell renewal and collagen production for long-lasting, natural results. The device uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin, leaving behind a fresh, radiant appearance. It is used to treat concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, age spots, and other signs of aging. Treatment is painless, and there is no needed downtime, though the skin may be pink or red for about 24 hours. While patients may see results after their first session, a series of five to 10 sessions is usually recommended.
Dermaplaning is great on its own or in preparation for procedures like a chemical peel or laser treatment. Your aesthetician will gently pass a small surgical blade over your skin. This process carefully removes the top layer of dead skin cells as well as the tiny vellus hairs on your face. These hairs can help trap dirt and oil in your skin, leading to blocked pores and blemishes. Dermaplaning reveals a fresh, healthy layer of skin underneath and allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply. It can also help target fine lines and even out skin tone. Treatments should be repeated at intervals spaced about four weeks apart.
Microneedling is used to treat several signs of aging. It also allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, increasing their effectiveness. During this procedure, tiny needles create micro-channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes and increasing the production of collagen and elastin. Serums can be used after microneedling to enhance your results. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and can treat issues such as irregular pigmentation, thin skin, and scars. It can also soften fine lines and creases.
