Our skin is one of the most incredible parts of our bodies. However, it’s also prone to show signs of sun damage, aging, and common skin concerns such as dullness, acne, and discoloration. While our body naturally sheds skin cells about once every month to reveal new skin. People find that they need a little extra help to polish and rejuvenate their skin, address their skin-related concerns, and attain their ideal image. Rejuvenating and restoring skin is one of the fastest ways to give your skin a brand new glow. At Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, we’re proud to offer several top-quality treatment options.
What Is Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is a term that can apply to any treatment designed to refresh and resurface your skin. These treatments can include microdermabrasion options, which use minimally invasive methods to sand away the outer layer of skin, and microneedling, which penetrate the top layer of the skin to boost collagen production.
Rejuvenation can also include more intensive methods like chemical peels, laser treatments, and dermal fillers. In general, all of these treatments’ end goal is to deliver smoother, more even-toned, youthful skin by correcting concerns such as wrinkles, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and more. Since there is such a wide range of rejuvenating treatments, patients need to understand the differences between each process, good results, and–most importantly–how often these treatments recommended for use.
Our dedicated team of professionals is available to answer any questions you may have about the treatments we offer. We offer initial consultations to help determine your candidacy for any of our rejuvenating treatments. If you are approved, we help design a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you and your skin.
What Are the Benefits?
Our bodies’ designed to resurface our skin always. Shedding dead and damaged skin cells helps protect our immune system, keeps our skin soft and smooth, and avoids clogging pores with debris. However, this process can require some assistance for a variety of reasons. The treatment of many common skin conditions, like acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation, is accelerated by helping refresh the skin.
You’ll keep your pores clean and unclogged by removing skin cells, and routine treatments can help improve the appearance of signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Rejuvenating the skin also aids in giving you a fresh new face.
Our patients are thrilled to see how treatment can boost their glow, help their skin absorb all your favorite skincare products, and help makeup and other products apply smoothly and effortlessly. While results vary between the different treatments available, you can expect to enjoy vibrant skin for at least one month after a skin rejuvenation treatment.
Which Conditions Can Be Treated?
Different conditions improved with a rejuvenating treatment. Since skin type, medical and genetic history, and environmental factors all have a part to play in your final results, our doctors will help determine whether you are an ideal candidate for one of our rejuvenating treatments.
Wrinkles and Lines
These natural side effects of aging can begin developing in your early 20s and continue to deepen as your skin loses its elasticity. Besides, environmental factors such as prolonged harmful sun exposure can exacerbate wrinkles and lines and accelerate the aging process.
While there is no cure for signs of aging, skin rejuvenating treatments can help smooth and fade lines and wrinkles. Both static wrinkles, which remain the same despite the facial movement, and dynamic wrinkles, which deepen with facial movement and expression, can be improved through treatment.
A constant presence of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin can make it appear lackluster. Rejuvenating treatments help restore a bright, dewy glow to your skin by sloughing off dead skin cells and other debris to let your skin shine.
Your skin can develop pigmentation issues, including freckles, dark spots, and sunspots, for various reasons. Still, sun exposure is the leading cause of many darkened or lightened areas of skin. Rejuvenating the skin can help fade these pigmented areas and restore an even skin tone.
Scars can take a long time to heal, but they tend to fade over time, mainly if they affect only your skin’s top layers. Rejuvenating treatments can speed this process and significantly improve scars’ appearance caused by acne and other conditions. Also, medicines that stimulate collagen production to help lift pockmark and depressed scars strengthen your skin’s overall texture.
Visible Blood Vessels
Vascular issues, which can include blood vessels visible through the surface of the skin, tiny blood-filled bumps on the skin, or conditions like rosacea, which results in a constant flush in the skin, can be improved through rejuvenating treatments. As the skin freshes, tone and color often grow, and vascular issues diminish.
The most common cause of skin laxity is aging, which naturally decreases collagen production and leads to a breakdown in the skin’s structure. Rejuvenating treatments like microneedling causes micro-traumas in the skin, stimulates collagen production and helps reverse mild to moderate loose and sagging skin cases.
Clogged pores most often cause acne. Many times, dead skin cells, oil, and dirt on your skin’s surface traps bacteria in your pores and causes frequent breakouts. By using rejuvenating treatments to keep your skin clear of debris, you may see a dramatic improvement in your acne.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
If you’re an adult who wants to see your skin transformed, you may be a treatment candidate! The good news is that almost every patient can find success with treatment thanks to the full range of options available. Our doctors will work with you to find the right treatment for your specific concerns and skin type.
In general, an ideal candidate can commit to wearing sunscreen daily and protecting their skin to ensure long-lasting results from all of these treatments. Sun damage is estimated to cause over 90% of all common skin concerns, including wrinkles and lines, dark spots, and skin cancer.
It’s crucial to keep your skin healthy and free of future issues by practicing proper sun protection. One of our skilled doctors can explain more and answer any questions you may have about your candidacy during your initial consultation.
How Often Should I Get Treatments?
We always allow time for your skin to heal between skin rejuvenation treatments. For some less intense treatments like microdermabrasion, your skin only needs 3-4 weeks before returning for a follow-up treatment. For microneedling and chemical peels, we recommend 4-6 weeks to allow your skin to heal.
For dermal fillers and other injectable treatments like Botox, we typically schedule follow-up treatments 3-6 months after your first appointment. In general, it’s best to have most of our rejuvenating treatments regularly to see optimal results.
Our dedicated staff designed your treatment plan to ensure your needs, lifestyle, and skin type. We will always examine your skin to ensure that it is ready for treatment and give you detailed instructions on caring for your skin between appointments.
Which Rejuvenating Treatments Are Available?
We’re proud to offer some of the most effective cosmetic treatments available. Here are some examples of rejuvenating treatments for your skin:
This treatment involves the injection of soft-tissue fillers into the skin. These fillers, which created from natural material such as hyaluronic acid, help plump and lift the skin around the cheekbones, jawline, eyes, nose, and lips.
They can improve lines, wrinkles, and loose skin as well as stimulate new collagen growth. Over time, the filler is safely absorbed by the body, and follow-up treatment can be pursued 4-6 months after your initial appointment.
Chemical peels resurface the skin and treat wrinkles, dark spots, scarring, and even precancerous growths. The peel is usually made with an acid solution and applied to the skin. It dissolves the outermost skin cells and layer of the epidermis, which peels off over the next several days. The result is a brand-new layer of skin.
This exfoliating treatment uses dermal sanding with hydroxide crystals to refresh the outer layer of your skin. Microdermabrasion helps slough off dead skin cells and improve the brightness and texture of your skin. With regular treatments, patients see their skin become softer and smoother. It requires zero downtime and is one of the gentlest rejuvenating options.
This popular treatment uses a handheld device with tiny, sharp needles to create micro-trauma in the skin’s top layers. Most patients find treatment painless thanks to the numbing cream. We recommend combining therapy with a serum, hyaluronic acid, or other nourishing substance to penetrate the skin and deliver rejuvenation at a deeper level. The small wounds in your skin trigger collagen production, which helps tighten and smooth your skin over the next 2-3 months.
IPL Photo Facials
The design of rejuvenating treatment is to address sun damage, can also help treat acne and rosacea. It uses powerful broadband light to penetrate the skin and reach its deepest layers.
The treatment process is virtually painless, and, once the appointment is complete, there is zero downtime required. This targeted treatment can balance your skin tone, lighten pigmented areas, and treat acne and rosacea in just a few natural remedies.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Lasers are one of the most powerful rejuvenating options available and can effectively treat many of the most common skin concerns. They can target mild to deep lines and wrinkles and improve your skin’s tone, texture, and elasticity.
Different types of lasers can target the various layers of your skin, which gives them the ability to treat more challenging skin conditions like birthmarks and spider veins. Laser therapy can completely erase acne scars and other scars over time, making them one of the best options for patients who are concerned about scarring.
