As you age, there are several forces at play that result in your skin becoming saggy, wrinkled, and blemished. Either because there is a loss of collagen, excessive exposure to sunlight, changes in your hormones, or other external factors, your skin takes a toll, and you can see visible changes.
While these changes may be harmless, they are not aesthetically appealing and make you look much older. Fortunately, with facial rejuvenation in Kennewick, you no longer have to worry about such skin concerns.
What Is Meant by Facial Rejuvenation?
Facial rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure or a set of cosmetic procedures that are designed to uplift your facial skin, treating a wide range of skin concerns and issues. The result is youthful skin that boasts a smooth and firm texture, even skin tone, is hydrated and replenished, giving you a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Many people use facial rejuvenation treatments to reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, brown spots, etc., and take years off their appearance.
At Synergy MedAesthetic, we have several methods of facial rejuvenation available, including:
- Cutera exec HR
- PICO Genesis
- Microneedling with PRF
- PRP Stem Cell Facelift
We also use the Enlighten™ laser system for our facial rejuvenation treatments. Although used primarily for laser tattoo removals, Enlighten™ is also commonly used for treating all kinds of skin problems, especially those which have to do with skin discoloration and sun damage.
What Are Some Skin Issues Facial Rejuvenation Can Fix?
Our Kennewick facial rejuvenation treatments are a great option for a wide range of skin issues and damage. If you want to achieve smooth, rejuvenated, and youthful skin with a minimally-invasive procedure and see visible results immediately, then facial rejuvenation treatment using Enlighten™ administered at Synergy MedAesthetics may be the solution that you are looking for.
Here are several common skin issues that facial rejuvenation can treat successfully:
Age spots and brown spots: Age spots and brown spots are common among older women. They are small, round, and dark areas that appear on your skin as you age. They are most commonly found in those who are above 50 years old but can occur in younger adults as well. They are referred to as brown spots because of their dark color.
Because these spots mostly appear on areas of the skin which are more exposed to sun, they are also sometimes referred to as sunspots. They are usually found on your face, your neck and shoulders, your arms, the back of your hands, and your upper back. They do not disappear or fade on their own if you don’t use any treatment.
Even though age spots/brown spots do not pose any risk for your health, they do indicate that your skin has been exposed to sun extensively and perceived as signs of aging. For these cosmetic reasons, many people choose to have them removed.
Sun damage: It’s no secret that constant exposure of your skin to sun can cause all kinds of skin damage. Although we receive vitamin D from sunlight, which is essential for healthy bone development, excessive exposure can result in detrimental dermal effects because of the ultraviolet rays.
When the ultraviolet rays of the sun hit our skin, it can result in a loss of elasticity over time. This means that your skin becomes loose and no longer firm, causing you to have an older appearance and age prematurely. Besides, you are more likely to develop sun spots when you expose your skin to sun too frequently.
Not only this, but excessive sun exposure can also result in sunburn and damage to your skin cells. In extreme cases, sun damage to the skin can cause skin cancer.
Pigmentary concerns: Another common skin issue that facial rejuvenation can treat is pigmentary concerns, such as uneven skin tone, birthmarks, etc. The causes of pigmentary concerns are varied and they can occur in anyone regardless of their age. While some people may have a birthmark they wish to remove, some may have a visible uneven skin tone as a result of accidents, injuries, lifestyle choices, or it may be environment-induced.
Pigmentary concerns are very common in the U.S. In fact, over 40 percent of the population struggle with one kind of pigmentary issue or another.
Although these skin issues may not pose any health risk, they can seriously impact your appearance and your self-image. Due to this, many people prefer to have them fixed so they can have a smooth, even, and glowing skin.
Texture concerns: As you age, your skin changes texture over the years. When you were younger, you may have had smooth, firm, and supple skin that glows with a youthful appearance. But this skin texture is unfortunately not something permanent because you start to see visible changes as you get older.
Your skin texture is influenced by a number of internal and external factors such as hormones, exposure to sunlight, dryness, etc. Over time, these can cause your skin to become loose, rough or bumpy, and develop coarse wrinkles or thin, fine lines. All these make you appear older than you actually are, which is why many want to have them removed.
Cutera excel HR
Are your facial veins, lesions, or pigmentation becoming harder to hide under concealers? While lesions and facial veins are usually harmless, they can affect your appearance. Quick treatment can get rid of these blemishes and restore your skin to its youthful condition.
As part of our facial rejuvenation treatment at Synergy MedAesthetics, we use the excel HR laser to target and correct benign pigmented lesions and facial veins.
The excel HR laser is a cutting-edge device that combines a 755nm Alexandrite laser with a 1064nm Nd:YAG. These laser pulses are highly-absorbable by the melanin in hair and skin, making the excel HR highly-effective in treating lesions and veins in the face.
The excel HR’s truPulse technology delivers a steady stream of laser pulses to the treatment site. This consistent exposure breaks down the damaged tissues, allowing your body to regrow healthy and un-marked epidermal tissue in its place.
This laser uses specialized sapphire contact cooling during the procedure, ensuring your skin never overheats or burns. This hot-cold combination works on your skin effectively, while soothing any tenderness or inflammation.
What Areas Can Be Addressed with excel HR?
Facial rejuvenation can target damaged cells that cause:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
The laser treatment has no downtime and can be used to correct the tone, quality, and texture of your skin in a matter of minutes.
PICO Genesis Enlighten System
Ultra-short laser pulses can be very powerful and can be really effective if the damaged tissues are smaller.
The PICO Genesis laser treatment is one procedure that uses short laser wavelengths to target and eliminate tiny particles in the skin, which cause:
- Epidermal pigmentation
- Dermal pigmentation
- Aging skin
- Sun-spots & brown spots
- Minto fine lines
- Loss of texture
The PICO Genesis treatment uses the Enlighten Laser System for this procedure. The Enlighten™ laser system effectively tackles these issues and leaves you with skin that is brighter, fresher, and blemish-free. In other words, you can breathe new life into your skin and reclaim your youthful glow again.
The system delivers specialized wavelengths of 2 nanoseconds with the short wavelength of 750/660 picoseconds to the targeted areas, to reduce the density and size of the skin discoloration. The pigmentation on your skin receives and absorbs these wavelengths as heat, resulting in the damage of skin cells, which are responsible for the discoloration resulting in brown spots, uneven skin tone, etc.
The powerful laser pulses effectively shatter the damaged tissues, allowing you to experience blemish-free, glowing skin in just one to three treatments. The best part is that your surrounding skin and tissue remain untouched, thanks to the high-precision accuracy of the laser system. This means that with Enlighten™, it is much easier to accurately target your problem areas and stimulate collagen production.
PICO Genesis FX for Acne Scar Removal and Pore Reduction
At Synergy MedAesthetics, we use the cutting-edge PICO Genesis FX technology to address other facial conditions such as scarring and enlarged pores.
The laser’s Micro Lens Array attachment leverages the power of the 1064nm Nd:YAG to carefully and painlessly treat challenging and stubborn skin conditions. The best part about this procedure is how it can benefit people with all skin types, textures, tones, and colors.
In particular, darker-skinned patients will find the PICO Genesis laser skin treatment to be well-suited for their skin. The unique construction of the laser technology ensures there are smooth and uniform results, which reduce the appearance of pigmentation, scarring, and skin sagging.
The PICO Genesis laser system is very soft on your skin, resulting in zero downtime.
