The Best Skin Care Treatments for Every Skin Problem

Summer is right around the corner, which means one thing – skin damage. Before the glorious rays of summer destroy your skin even more, it’s time to take care of you!

Here are some great skin treatments that can help you restore and refresh your skin this spring before we get hit hard by the harsh summer sun! Get glowing, youthful skin and treat sun damage before it’s too late.

Juvederm

Juvederm is a great option for anyone who has lost volume in their face, has deep lines or wants to get fuller lips! Juvederm offers an entire line of injectable fillers that can help restore youthfulness to your face.

It can help lift and contour cheeks, smooth lines, and plump lips. It can also be used to fill any fine line or wrinkle on the body. Juvederm is minimally invasive and offers results in minutes.

The procedure is quick and can be accomplished in just a few minutes. A numbing agent will be used to ensure the process is quick and painless. There may be slight bruising or swelling within the first few hours or days, but your face should return to normal quickly!

SkinPen

SkinPen is another great solution for someone looking to reduce the signs of aging. The SkinPen helps improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenates aging skin.

The SkinPen is a microneedling procedure that prompts your skin’s natural repair response. This helps bring collagen to the surface of the skin and begins the healing process. The procedure is quick and relatively painless.

The procedure takes around 30 minutes and has minimal side effects. Some patients may see mild pinkness for 2-4 days after the procedure, while others will see their skin return to normal within 24 hours.

Dermaplaning

Looking to revitalize your skin? Dermaplaning might be right for you! This painless exfoliation technique will help smooth your skin and remove any pesky peach fuzz lurking on your face.

Dermaplaning safely and painlessly scrapes away the top layer of dead skin leaving your face softer than ever. It is especially helpful for people who have drier skin. Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, except skin with acne. If you have acne and are still interested in dermaplaning, wait until any flare-ups have died down.

The procedure only takes around 30 minutes and you can return to work right after the procedure. Make sure you wear sunscreen if you head outside because your new skin will be susceptible to burns!

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are another alternative if you are looking for a longer lasting solution to scars, aging skin, sun spots, wrinkles or sun damage. There are different types of chemical peels ranging from superficial to deep peels.

The type of chemical peel that is right for you depends on your skin concerns. Your plastic surgeon can help you decide which chemical peels will give you the desired results.

Chemical peels use different types of acids to remove the top layers of your skin. The result is soft skin with reduced imperfections. Some light chemical peels have relatively short recovery times, while deeper chemical peels may require extended recovery time.

Chemical peels may sting a little bit, but they should not cause too much pain. Your plastic surgeon will help develop a recovery plan for you. They will also walk you through any potential complications that come with a chemical peel.

Although chemical peels are more time intensive, the results are astounding. Chemical peels are a great way to address more serious skin concerns.
