Skin rejuvenation is a catchall term for any treatment, topical application, or procedure intended to improve the skin’s appearance. At Skin Concierge, Dr. Schacht offers a full range of skin rejuvenation options. Each of her patients receives a customized treatment plan, based on his or her aesthetic concerns and goals.
Chemical peels are one technique for rejuvenating the skin. The application of a special solution causes the top layers of skin to peel off, revealing new skin underneath. Chemical peels can treat fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and scars. After healing from a chemical peel, patients often notice that their skin looks smoother and brighter.
Botox is a cosmetic injectable used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. Your dermatologist can use it to minimize the look of crow’s feet and frown lines. The results can last up to four months.
Dermal fillers are also cosmetic injectables, but they don’t work the same way as Botox. Dermal fillers are usually formulated with hyaluronic acid or collagen—synthetic versions of substances that naturally occur in the body. Dermal fillers plump up depressed areas, causing a temporary reduction in the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers may also be used to create a fuller appearance in the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds.
Kybella is an FDA-approved, injected treatment intended for use on submental fat, or double chins. It’s a highly targeted treatment that destroys fat cells in order to minimize the look of the double chin and to encourage a more defined profile.
Tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin that become visible are known as spider veins. They can occur in clusters, and many people find them to be a cosmetic concern. In-office treatments like laser therapy and sclerotherapy can be used to treat spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive treatment for spider veins and varicose veins. The dermatologist injects a special solution into the problematic vein. Over time, the treated vein will collapse and fade from view.
Melasma, also called the mask of pregnancy, is most common in women. It’s thought that the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy trigger melasma. It’s characterized by brownish or grayish patches on the face. It’s possible for melasma to fade over time, but many people prefer to treat it. Your dermatologist may recommend a skin lightening cream or a combination medicated cream. If these are unsuccessful, an in-office treatment like a chemical peel can help.
Brown spots, also called age spots or liver spots, are quite common in older adults. They can also appear in younger individuals, especially if those people have a history of unprotected sun exposure. Most brown spots are harmless, although they can be aesthetically displeasing. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, cryosurgery, and laser therapy are some treatment options.
Everyone will eventually get wrinkles—it’s an inevitable part of aging. Wrinkles are more likely to develop at a younger age in people who smoke or don’t protect themselves from UV rays. Dermal fillers and Botox are popular treatment options.
Acne scars can occur after an active acne breakout. They are more likely in people with severe, inflammatory acne like cysts and nodules. To prevent acne scars from forming, see your dermatologist for professional acne extraction. If you have existing scars, your dermatologist can recommend a treatment to lessen their appearance.
