3 Facial Cosmetic Treatments: Which is Right for You?

When it comes to cosmetic procedures designed to help you look and feel younger, there are quite a few to choose from. Let us help narrow down that search for you with a guide to three cosmetic treatments for the face and how to determine which one is perfect for you.

Chemical Peel

One of the most common facial treatments is a procedure called a chemical peel. This procedure removes the top layer of dead skin from your face to help stimulate collagen and skin cell growth below it. The name comes from the acidic solutions that are used to remove the dead skin cells. Think of this procedure as getting rid of old skin tissue and allowing the next layer below to come forward. This procedure is useful for individuals who suffer from moderate wrinkles, fine lines, acne, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone. Most of the benefits are noticeable within two weeks after the procedure. The procedure can be done every three months to produce the best-looking results. While your skin may be sensitive and pink following a chemical peel, it is completely safe.

PRP Therapy

Another way to look great again is by receiving Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapy). Also known as a Dracula facial, this fascinating procedure stimulates the collagen production in your skin to increase elasticity. While a chemical peel clears your skin of dead skin cells, PRP Therapy works by releasing growth factors back in the skin tissue. A small blood sample is removed from the body and then the platelet rich plasma is separated. Tiny injections are made across the face before the PRP solution is brushed on. The PRP allows the body to heal and look rejuvenated. PRP Therapy is a great way to achieve natural-looking results with your own blood so you don’t have to worry about adverse effects. This procedure might sound a little scary, but the results are incredible and is relatively pain-free.

Photo Skin Rejuvenation

Not all facial treatments are designed to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Age spots and uneven skin pigmentation may make you feel older than you actually are. Consider receiving a Photo Skin Rejuvenation treatment that uses focused UV rays to have your skin looking better than ever. A soothing liquid is applied to the face before a handpiece glides over the skin, releasing the focused light. Some patients may notice a mild pinkness after the procedure that fades within hours but is pain-free. The quick and easy energy can be applied over multiple sessions for maximum results but the benefits can be observed after the very first session. Your skin will be looking amazing in the short weeks following your Photo Skin Rejuvenation.
