1. Why do you need skin rejuvenation treatment?

As we age, our skin starts showing the results of our careless attitude and negligence over the years. The fun days at the beach, hours of late-night binge-watching, evenings of alcohol and nicotine abuse, sedentary lifestyle, and munching on junk food show up in the form of skin complications such as wrinkles, sunspots, acne, scars, skin laxity, discolouration, freckles, sagging skin, fine lines, dark circles, and much more.

Skin rejuvenation treatment procedures can be availed to treat and heal the face, hands, jawline, neck, chest, and other parts of the body. The skin specialist or dermatologist can guide you on making your skin firm, clear, plump, and more radiant through skin rejuvenation procedures that can trigger a wound-healing effect and stimulate the growth of elastin and collagen. 

These procedures can be equally effective to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines by inhibiting the contraction of facial muscles.  For instance, microdermabrasion and chemical peels are effective to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by eliminating skin debris and initiating the process of cell turnover. On the other hand, Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can be beneficial to treat melasma, sun spots, age spots, redness, hyperpigmentation, and broken blood vessels making you look refreshed and healthy.

2. Skin Rejuvenation Vs Skin Resurfacing

Skin rejuvenation is a broader term than skin surfacing and involves every procedure to make the skin better. It includes treatments to treat skin complications on the face and other parts of the body and may involve procedures to treat freckles, sunspots, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, visible blood vessels, sunspots, sagging skin, crow’s feet, sun and age spots, skin tone issues, dull skin, and signs of ageing through procedures such as platelet-rich plasma therapy, micro-needling, botulinum injections, chemical peels, dermal fillers, and non-ablative and ablative lasers.

Skin Resurfacing treatment procedures are performed to restore a more beautiful, youthful complexion by removing the damaged outer skin layers to reveal the healthier and plumper skin beneath and encouraging healthy, new skin cell growth.

Over time, the outer layers of the skin may start to show signs of wear and tear because of injuries, ageing, and environmental factors causing scars, age spots, wrinkles, and discolouration. Skin Resurfacing treatment procedures such as chemical peels, ablative laser treatments, microdermabrasion, microneedling, and light peels can reverse the signs of stress and ageing to help you look healthier and younger.

3. Skin rejuvenation treatment methods

Ablative Lasers

The procedure involves the removal of outer layers of the skin and stimulates new cells to replace them. It can be effective to treat brown spots, discolouration, fine lines, wrinkles, unwanted body or facial hair, encourage collagen production, tighten skin, and remove surgical or acne scars.

Non-Ablative Lasers

Lasers that don’t break the surface of the skin are known as non-ablative lasers. They work by heating up the skin beneath the surface to restore the natural firmness of the skin and increase the growth of new collagen. Non-Ablative Lasers usually don’t require downtime and have long-lasting results when it comes to rejuvenating your appearance.

Light Chemical Peels

Light Chemical Peels are effective to remove or reduce blotchiness, discolouration, smooth fine lines, age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, and injury or surgery scars while also removing keratosis or precancerous growths.

Deep Chemical Peels

Deeper chemical peels are known to penetrate deep into the epidermis or even into the dermis, the next layer. This procedure is suggested to address more advanced signs of ageing like extensive sun damage, severe acne scars, or deeper wrinkles.

Microdermabrasion

It can be used on the neck, hands, face, or body. It is effective to improve skin tone and reduce wrinkles and fine lines along with reducing mild acne scars, age spots, and crow’s feet.

Dermabrasion

This powerful mechanical resurfacing technique is ideally recommended to reduce vertical lip lines, facial wrinkles, acne scars, smile lines, and other blemishes. It is also effective to enhance new cell growth and remove visible skin and facial concerns.

Microneedling

This facial rejuvenation procedure is recommended to treat sun damage, reduce skin imperfections, and restore a clear and smooth complexion. It is also an excellent choice for treating stretch marks, large pore sizes, age spots, hyperpigmentation, texture problems, and rough patches.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, involves the use of a broad spectrum of single, highly-focused wavelengths that are delivered in brief pulses. This non-ablative procedure is effective to treat hyperpigmentation, sun damage, spider veins, vascular lesions, texture problems, redness, rosacea, age spots, freckles, and fine lines.

4. Recovery and Aftercare

Patients can expect significant improvements in the elasticity of the skin and youthful, glowing skin after skin rejuvenation procedures. The healing time for each procedure is different and may vary among individuals. It might depend on many factors such as the type of skin rejuvenation procedure performed, the extent and severity of the health condition, the response of medications and treatments on the patient, the expertise of the surgeon, the success rate and reputation of the skin clinic, etc.
