Some individuals aren’t satisfied with the way the skin appears on their face because of wrinkles, age spots and scars. To diminish these facial flaws, many individuals visit a facial plastic surgeon for skin rejuvenation. Read the frequently asked questions below to find out more about skin rejuvenation procedures.
What is skin rejuvenation and who should schedule this type of procedure?
Skin rejuvenation refers to the process of receiving treatment for imperfections of the skin, such as wrinkles, freckles and scarring from acne. This procedure is commonly performed on the face but it can also be done on other areas of the body. Individuals who are interested in this type of procedure should consult only with a plastic surgeon who is board certified.
There are various procedures that a surgeon can do to achieve the desired results. These include eDermastamp, PRP and eDermastamp, and Factor 4. Skin peels, such as a milk peel, pumpkin peel and mask peel, are also often used to rejuvenate the skin.
Individuals who have facial skin irregularities, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring or age spots are great candidates for skin rejuvenation. Those who want to achieve a more youthful appearance often contact a plastic surgeon and request a skin rejuvenation procedure.
How are skin rejuvenation procedures performed on the face?
During an eDermastamp treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the location of the face that the surgeon will treat. Next, a machine that has six slender needles going up and down is placed on the areas that need to be treated. When individuals have eDermastamp with PRP, platelet rich plasma from an individual’s own blood is placed into the machine and injected into the skin.
Factor 4 is another treatment that uses an individual’s platelet rich plasma, which is injected into areas of the face that need to be rejuvenated. Skin peels contain exfoliating chemicals that are rubbed into the skin to take off the top skin layer and diminish wrinkles. Skin peels also act as a stimulant for new skin cells.
