SkinPen Microneedling is deal for treating acne scarring, texture, fine lines and wrinkles. Usually, acne scars are the result of inflamed acne blemishes. The SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body's natural healing process, while minimizing cellular damage and boosting collagen production. This results in an extremely effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the structure of the skin intact.
Our Lumecca IPL Photofacial is best for treating dark/age spots, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and vascular lesions. Lumecca IPL is a powerful intense pulsed light laser that provides a photofacial through the delivery of light using photo thermolysis to target rosacea, vascular lesions, and pigmentation.
We help clients determine which treatment is best for them based on the skin concerns during a comprehensive consultation.
Sometimes, melasma is aggravated and worsened by laser treatments. This is mainly because a majority of lasers use heat energy to target pigmentation in the skin. This is why chemical peels and SkinPen Microneedling are recommended because they effectively target melasma concerns without aggravating the condition. Chemical peels help slough off dead skin cells and target the first layer of skin (the epidermis). This helps to reveal smoother, healthier skin that has better pigmentation to it. Chemical peels typically take effect 3-5 days and peeling may last up to 7 day days depending on the peel.
In addition, we also recommend at-home maintenance through a custom tailored skincare routine which may include products to treat melasma.
Botox/Dysport and Dermal Fillers
Botox and Xeomin are neuromodulators that treat dynamic lines that form due repeated muscle movement. Botox is injected directly into the muscle to treat areas such as eleven lines between the brows, crow's feet, and forehead lines. When these muscles are relaxed, the skin smooths and creates a youthful appearance. The results can typically be seen in 7-10 days and can last up to 3-4 months.
Dermal fillers (like Restylane and Juvederm) are a gel-like substance that adds volume and smoothness in certain areas of the face including cheeks, lips, around the mouth, and jawline. Dermal fillers are injected under the skin, not the muscle unlike Botox. There are longer-lasting and temporary dermal filler options. Derma fillers are often used to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and create contouring in the face. Results can last between 6 months to 1 year, depending how each patient's body metabolize the products.
When getting injections, there is always a chance for bruising or swelling. To minimize the chance of bruising, we recommend staying away from any blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E, and fish oil for 7 days prior to your procedure and avoid alcohol 2 days prior. Consuming pineapple juice 2-3 days before your procedure may also help with bruising.
Although you're able to resume normal physical activities 24-48 hours post-treatment, it's highly recommended that you have your treatments performed at least 2-4 weeks before any important events to allow sufficient healing time an allow the product to fully settle.
