Skin rejuvenation refers to improving the appearance of your skin by using a do-it-yourself natural remedy or by undergoing a cosmetic procedure. But in aesthetic medicine, it is a treatment used for resurfacing the skin, or to improve its texture and clarity to improve the overall appearance of a person’s skin.
There are several surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures used for skin rejuvenation, ranging from laser treatments to Dermabrasion to chemical peels. Whichever the procedure you and your physician choose, based on your skin type and the nature and severity of the skin damage, the end result is a smoother and clearer rejuvenated skin with renewed color and a finer texture.
We all wish to have a forever young-looking skin, free of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. But realistically speaking, this is not possible. Aging and environmental factors do take their toll on our skin causing it to wrinkle, lose its freshness and firmness and to develop age spots, such as freckles, blemishes and pigmentation marks. Most people have one skin imperfection at a time, but there are many suffering from a number of skin conditions simultaneously. The former can easily treat the problem with any specific procedure, but the latter require a comprehensive treatment plan, such as skin rejuvenation or skin revitalization treatment.
What can be treated with skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation can be used to treat a number of skin imperfections including:
- Static wrinkles: Deep etched wrinkles that are visible all the time and are not affected by facial movements
- Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines, such as nasolabial folds, frown lines, that usually appear as folds when the skin is not moving, and deepen as you move your facial muscles
- Pigmentation: Skin discoloration, such as freckles, blemishes, melasma, age spots or color changes to the skin tone, mainly caused by excessive sun exposure.
- Scars: Mild to moderate scars of all kinds, be they acne or surgical or injury, can be corrected using skin rejuvenation techniques
- Vascular conditions: Blood vessels or veins visible on the surface of light colored skin can be made less with skin rejuvenation techniques. Vascular lesions, tiny blood filled blisters on the surface of skin, can also be treated with this technique
- Slanginess or loss of skin tone: Loss of skin elasticity or the development of cellulite, due to weight loss can be easily treated by stimulating collagen production, using various skin rejuvenation methods
