The 5 Top Skin Resurfacing Treatments
There are plenty of factors that can lead to skin damage, including: wrinkles, blotches, scars, and spots. Aging, hereditary, injury, acne, sun exposure or other environmental factors can lead to skin problems. Whatever the cause of the damage, people in the Birmingham, MI area who are interested in undergoing skin resurfacing can come to AMAE Med Spa for a variety of top tier skin resurfacing treatments.
But with so many skin resurfacing options available, how exactly does one decide which is best? In this article renowned plastic surgeon and skin care expert Dr. Azhar Ali explains the difference between the most popular skin resurfacing treatments available at AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI.
ThermiSmooth Skin Resurfacing
ThermiSmooth is a skin resurfacing treatment that stimulates the natural production of collagen through radiofrequency generated heat. This improves the appearance and quality of the skin by making it stronger, thinker, and healthier. For best results from this skin resurfacing treatment, it is recommended that patients undergo a series of ThermiSmooth sessions. ThermiSmooth is a gentle, comfortable skin resurfacing treatment, with patients occasionally comparing the sensation to that of a warm massage
Ellipse Frax 1550 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Ellipse Frax 1550 Laser skin resurfacing is designed to perform non-ablative skin resurfacing -which includes treating fine lines and wrinkles- as well as surgical scars, acne scars, and stretch makes. Ellipse Frax 1550 Laser Skin Resurfacing helps improve the texture of the skin, removes age spots, and gives the patient an overall more youthful, less wrinkled appearance.
There are very few side effects that come along with the Ellipse Frax 1550 Laser skin resurfacing treatment and asks less downtime of the patient than other similar laser skin resurfacing treatments. Despite the treated area experiencing some minor soreness or appearing slightly red (both of which will subside after a few hours) patients of this skin resurfacing treatment are able to resume their daily routine as soon as they complete treatment.
Results from the Ellipse Frax 1550 Laser skin resurfacing treatment should become visible over the next few days following treatment. For best skin resurfacing results, patients should undergo a series of three treatments, spread out over four weeks.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation Skin Resurfacing
The Nordlys Intense Pulsed Light (ILP) System is a skin resurfacing treatment that directs controlled pulses of light to the skin’s upper layer. The natural chemicals of the body convert this light into heat, which then destroys parts of the cells that store melanin and/or pigmentation. In this way, the Nordlys IPL skin resurfacing treatment is ideal for treating blotches or discoloration.
The energy generated by the Nordlys IPL skin resurfacing treatment is carefully controlled to destroy dermal imperfections without inflicting any unwanted damage to the surrounding area. Additionally, this particular skin resurfacing treatment can be performed extremely quickly, with a full-face treatment able to be completed in under 20 minutes. A single treatment is often enough to produce noticeable improvement to one’s aesthetic concerns, however, ideal results will generally require up to 3 treatments.
Dermalinfusion Skin Resurfacing
The incredible new Dermalinfusion skin resurfacing treatment combines extraction, exfoliation, and serum infusion into one single procedure. Dermalinfusion promotes the health of the skin, and results in vastly improved smoothness, clarity, and overall appearance of the skin.
Dermalinfusion skin resurfacing treatment is non-invasive and can be customized to meet a great number of skin issues faced by Birmingham, MI patients, and can provide treatment to virtually every color, type, and tone of skin. The Dermalinfusion skin resurfacing treatment infuses the skin with medical-strength serums specially formulated to deliver maximum exfoliation.
SkinStylus® Microneedling for Skin Resurfacing
Another skin resurfacing treatment we offer at Birmingham, MI’s AMAE Med Spa is the SkinStylus MicroSystem, which has changed the way microneedling is performed. More advanced than competing microneedling systems, SkinStylus offers “fractional” treatment for more precise, effective skin resurfacing care that yields remarkable results.
The fractional nature of the SkinStylus MicroSystem is similar in principle to fractional lasers. By creating numerous tiny wounds in the skin (called “microchannels”), this skin resurfacing treatment stimulates the body’s natural production of collage.
The new collagen fills in lines and wrinkles, as well as treating scars and improving the tone and elasticity of the skin. This skin resurfacing treatment can also help reduce pigmentation.
