SAY GOODBYE TO DULLNESS AND SKIN DAMAGE

Are you unhappy with the dullness of your skin? Has sun damage, pollution, and age reduced the beauty and youthfulness of your face? If the answer is yes, a skin rejuvenation treatment can set things right in no time. Visit our Brentwood Laser Center and find out for yourself.

Skin rejuvenation is the best way to restore your skin to its former beauty and health. In our skin rejuvenation treatments, we hydrate your skin, restore its natural pH balance, address the wrinkles, depressions, and discoloration of the skin, using minimally-invasive and non-invasive treatments.

It’s important to revitalize and rejuvenate the skin regularly as it helps in multiple ways:

  • Skin rejuvenation stimulates the production of fresh dermal cells, which keep your skin younger
  • It reduces blotchy pigmentation and makes your skin even-toned
  • It fills in the acne scars and makes your skin smoother and more contoured
  • It tightens the skin by stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin
  • It reduces skin dryness, flakiness and redness considerably
  • It reduces the appearance of stressed capillaries, damaged blood vessels, and rosacea on the face

When it comes to skin rejuvenation procedures, there are a variety of treatments to choose from.

MICRONEEDLING

Often, patients look towards hyaluronic acid fillers for skin rejuvenation. However, microneedling is a safer and easier way to get the same benefits of cosmetic dermal fillers in lesser time.

Here, the doctor will use sterilized thin needles to make tiny punctures on your face to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin by your dermal cells. This making of micro-punctures will also clear the dermal passageways in your skin, allowing your skin to breath.

Next, the doctor will inject growth factors into the skin to add more volume to your face and stimulate the proper development of your skin. With years of experience and successes, Dr. Kia and his team deliver some of the top microneedling Brentwood residents rely on.The entire procedure takes less than an hour, and you can return to your tasks a few hours after the procedure.

LASER SKIN RESURFACING

One of the most popular and preferred ways to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin is the laser skin resurfacing procedure. In this treatment, high-intensity laser light is directed at your skin to break down the damaged and dead dermal cells. The laser light dissolves the molecular bonds of the dermal cells, destroying them completely until a smoother and younger-looking skin is revealed underneath.

The laser skin resurfacing treatment is excellent to address any irregularities in the skin in the form of discoloration, fine lines, pockmarks, and scars. The treatment is considered to be a medical procedure and is done under anesthesia. The entire procedure can take up to two hours, and the results last up to three years, provided the patient takes care of the skin with the proper topical applicants and hydration.

Other alternatives to the laser skin resurfacing are the Intense Pulse Light (IPL) photorejuvenation, LED light therapy, and RF fractional treatment. Dr. Kia will analyze your skin and advise you on the best treatment for your requirements and/or your condition.

Microdermabrasion

Skin rejuvenation helps remove the layer of dead and dirty skin on your face, releasing the healthy skin underneath. In the microdermabrasion treatment, Dr. Kia will use tiny crystals to slough-off the dead skin cells on your face. Using a brush-tip needle, the doctor will remove the layer of dead skin and gently exfoliate your face. Once exfoliated, the younger, fresher skin is visible, completely debris-free and glowing.

Microdermabrasion is the ideal procedure to undertake if you’ve recently had any extensive, invasive cosmetic procedure as it is extremely gentle on the skin. The results of the treatment last between 3-5 months and give you youthful, supple skin.

Chemical peels

A great way to revitalize your skin while stimulating the growth of better quality dermal cells is chemical peeling. In a chemical peel, skin-friendly chemicals are used to remove the old outer layer of your skin, which is filled with debris and dead cells.

A thin layer of a chemical agent is swabbed onto the skin and left on for 15 minutes. The face is then washed using a sensitive and light cleaning liquid, and the skin is moisturized to reduce the pain and the swelling.

Chemical peels are performed on three levels – the first being a gentle peel that brightens your skin tone and reduces the appearance of pigmentation temporarily. The second level is a deeper clean that removes the outermost layer of dead skin and exposes the fresh skin underneath. The final level of the chemical peel offers the deepest clean and is perfect if you wish to target sun damage, pigmentation, deep acne scars, skin blotchiness and deep wrinkles.

The results of the chemical peel vary depending on the extensiveness of the treatment ranging from a week to a few months.

Fraxel laser treatment

Fraxel laser treatment is designed to address aging and sun-damaged skin through microscopic lasers that penetrate deep into your skin and stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. This system promotes very rapid healing as the laser treats only a section of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact, promoting quicker healing. Fraxel treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells, allowing you to achieve smoother, fresher-looking skin, a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and the improved appearance of scars.

A typical session lasts around 25 minutes and it is customary for a full course of treatment to span three to five sessions spaced at intervals of two to four weeks apart. Results are immediate and improve over time with optimal gains at around two to three months after treatment. During a Fraxel session, topical anesthesia is first applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area throughout. Most patients report feeling an increased sensation of heat during treatment.

Through this non-invasive procedure you can achieve improved skin tone and texture, get rid of unwanted skin spots and enhance your overall appearance, regaining both confidence and satisfaction in the way you look. Contact us today for more information.

Dermaplaning

Similar to microdermabrasion, the dermaplaning procedure is a skin rejuvenation and revitalization treatment that combines gentle facial exfoliation with facial hair removal. In this procedure, the skin is exfoliated using crystals, and the older, dry and dead skin is washed-off.

Next, using a safe scalpel-like tool, Dr. Kia will remove the peach fuzz on your face, leaving your skin completely smooth and silky. The dermaplaning procedure leaves behind a beautiful glowing face that is free of unwanted facial hair.

Contrary to popular misconception, dermaplaning doesn’t result in the re-growth of excessive peach fuzz. Results last for 2-3 months and when the hair does grow back, it will be very tiny and can be removed again in a similar procedure. When it comes to microneedling Brentwood residents depend on, Dr. Kia and his team rank among the absolute best.

Clear + Brilliant Laser

Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is designed to help prevent the telltale signs of aging. By addressing the visible effects of time and the environment on your skin, it helps keep your skin looking youthful and fresh.

Requiring no surgery or injections, a single 15-20 minute session can bring a smoother, younger-looking appearance to your skin. Treatments are reported to be “quick and gentle,” with little to no downtime. This treatment can help with fine lines, reduction of pores, improved texture and skin tone, and an improvement of your overall appearance.

The Clear + Brilliant laser works to create millions of microscopic zones of treatment in the outermost layers of the skin. Damaged skin is then replaced with new healthy tissue which in turn gives a younger, more youthful-looking appearance.

Dr. Kia will determine the number of treatment sessions required to address your concerns and desires. Patients have reported visible improvements after just 4-6 sessions. A customized course of treatment will be designed for you, to help you attain your cosmetic goals. Be sure to discuss your concerns with Dr. Kia fully during your initial consultation.
