Are you looking for a simple way to improve your appearance that doesn't involve surgery? Dr. Curt Birchall of Rocky River Med Spa - The Fountain Clinic in Rocky River, OH, discusses several treatments you'll want to consider, including laser skin rejuvenation.
Both Botox and dermal fillers are injected into your skin to reduce lines and wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses from reaching the muscles that cause frowning and other expressions, while fillers plump up lines and also restore volume.
Microdermabrasion removes the top layers of the skin with a fine spray of crystals. Once those layers are removed, surface wrinkles and scars will be gone. Microdermabrasion tightens your skin, improves texture and also thickens collagen, the protein that gives skin its elasticity.
The Vampire FaceLift uses your own blood to refresh your appearance. Before the treatment begins, a small amount of your blood will be extracted with a syringe and placed in a centrifuge. After the centrifuge isolates the plasma, it will be mixed with a special activating gel and applied to your face. Vampire Facelifts are used in combination with Restylane injections to reduce wrinkles and restore volume to your cheeks.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation works by heating the layer of collagen under your skin and breaking down the pigment that can cause age spots and broken capillaries. It offers many benefits and can:
- Make lines, wrinkles and acne scars less noticeable
- Tighten and firm your skin, which also reduces wrinkles
- Get rid of dark skin patches, age spots, large pores, spider veins, stretch marks and freckles
- Reduce inflammation and redness common in rosacea
There's no downtime with laser skin rejuvenation. In fact, you can go back to work after your session at Dr. Birchall's Rocky River office, if you wish. Although your skin may look a little red for a few hours after treatment, you won't experience any uncomfortable side effects. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need approximately three to five sessions to obtain the desired results.
