What Is Skin Rejuvenation?

As we age, our skin starts to tell a story of summers spent lying in the sun, personal battles with acne, and laughing until lines become permanently etched around the eyes. It displays the physical evidence of an enjoyable and exciting life. However, some of these changes in the skin are not always welcome. Fortunately, textural irregularities such as wrinkles, acne scars, sun and age spots, and the appearance of enlarged pores can all be corrected with skin rejuvenation. These customizable treatments target the overall appearance and health of the skin to reveal a younger, smoother complexion.

What Are the Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation in Charleston, SC?

Skin rejuvenation offers minimally invasive skin therapies for patients who want to improve the appearance and vitality of their skin but wish to avoid the high costs and extensive recovery of more invasive cosmetic surgeries.

Some of the benefits skin rejuvenation offers include:

  • Fast results with minimal recovery time
  • Increased collagen production
  • Skin firming technology
  • Deep hydration of dry skin
  • Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightened skin tone and minimization of pigmentation
  • Softened textural issues such as raised acne scars, and enlarged pores

What Are the Common Causes of Skin Aging?

The main culprit of skin aging is the decreased rate at which cells regenerate. As we get older, our cells start to renew at a slower pace, resulting in dry, less elastic skin. These changes create an environment where blemishes can flourish. Melanocytes also decrease with age and increase in size, allowing sun spots  and hyperpigmentation to appear.

Other common causes of skin aging include:

  • Tobacco
  • Alcohol
  • Poor diet
  • Poor hydration
  • Stress
  • Sun exposure
  • Pollutions

What is AquaGold?

AquaGold is a skin refining treatment that uses a handheld device equipped with 20 tiny micro-needles made of 24k pure gold. Besides providing a luxurious treatment, gold-plating is also the safest option. It resists corrosion, meaning it won’t oxidize when met with the open air. During an AquaGold treatment, the device strategically penetrates at a depth of 0.6mm below the skin’s surface, opening channels for anti-aging and skin-nourishing creams and serums to be delivered directly into the skin.

AquaGold treatments can be used to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Brighten the skin
  • Improve skin texture and tone
  • Improve the appearance of pores

AquaGold treatments are safe for dry, oily, sensitive, or combination skin types.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Like other rejuvenation procedures, chemical peels are designed to improve the texture of the face, neck, and hands. During a chemical peel treatment, the peel is applied as solution directly to the skin and left on for a brief time. While the peel sits, it exfoliates the dead skin cells on the outer layer of the skin, revealing revitalized new skin below the surface. Chemical peels come in various strengths and depths, resulting in a completely customizable procedure. Sessions vary from 30 minutes to an hour, after which patients can return to their daily routine. Rigorous sun protection with SPF is recommended post chemical peel.

Additionally, chemical peels stimulate new collagen and encourage cell turnover, resulting in a firmer, more even complexion.

Chemical peels treat various skin irregularities, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Discoloration
  • Enlarged pores and acne scars
  • Rough, bumpy skin texture

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a revolutionary non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses tiny needles to create micro-fine perforations in the top layer of the skin. The body responds to these micro-injuries by activating the body’s natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin. Treatments are relatively simple with minimal pain. A specialist will start by cleansing the skin. Then, using the handheld device, they’ll focus on small areas at a time, allowing surrounding areas to remain unharmed. This approach allows for rapid healing and a shorter recovery period.

Here are some common skin issues microneedling can significantly improve:

  • Texture and firmness
  • Stretch marks
  • Scarring
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

What Is A Botox Lip Flip?

If you want your lips to appear fuller without adding additional volume, a lip flip is an alternative option to traditional dermal fillers. A lip flip is a cosmetic treatment that can rejuvenate the lips while providing a more noticeably fuller pout. During a lip flip, an expert injector will place Botox® (or a similar neurotoxin) into the lip muscle, allowing it to relax and flip upward. The results are naturally full, pillowy lips without adding volume with lip fillers. This procedure can also help to improve small lines around the lips.

What Is Hand Rejuvenation?

Loss of suppleness and elasticity is apparent on the face, but the skin on the hands is just as susceptible to aging. Hand rejuvenation procedures are for patients experiencing volume loss, discoloration, or other visible signs of aging in their hands. At Réforme Dermatology, we use dermal fillers and chemical peels to revitalize aging hands.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers like Radiesse® work well to fill hands that have lost significant volume due to aging. When injected, fillers can diminish the appearance of prominent veins and blood vessels while rejuvenating the skin’s suppleness.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of discoloration on the hands, such as sun and age spots that develop over time.
