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 treatments, 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 a 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 and fine lines, age spots and brown spots, etc. and take years off their appearance.
At Synergy MedAesthetic, we 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 discolorations and sun damage.
How does the Enlighten™ Laser System Work?
The Enlighten™ laser system effectively tackles these skin 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 to the targeted areas on your skin. 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 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.
What are Some Skin Issues that Facial Rejuvenation can Fix?
Facial rejuvenation treatments are great options for treating a wide range of skin issues and damages. 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 also 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 the 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 the sun extensively and is also 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 the 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 of the sun.
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 the 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 even 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 that they wish to remove, some may have a visible uneven skin tone that may have been caused as a result of accidents, injuries, lifestyle choices, or they 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.
