Dermatologist in Alexandria, VA and Washington, DC answers, “What is skin rejuvenation?”
At Braun Dermatology in Alexandria, VA and Washington, DC, we offer a variety of techniques to effectively restore your skin to its youthful radiance. Below, Dr. Braun explains what skin rejuvenation is and how it is accomplished.
What is skin rejuvenation?
There are many definitions of skin rejuvenation, but at Braun Dermatology, we consider it to be anything that makes your skin look younger, brighter, and more radiant. As we age, our skin accumulates damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays and also shows the natural effects of aging on the skin—such as lost collagen, elastin, and hydration. It’s no wonder that our skin loses some of its youthful luster, smoothness, and tone. Fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation such as sunspots and freckles, and laxity in the skin are signs that we are getting older, but fortunately, there are effective skin rejuvenation techniques available nowadays to help combat these issues.
Skin rejuvenation therapies
There are a number of ways that skin rejuvenation can be accomplished. At Braun Dermatology, a wide array of treatment options to bring back the youthful, dewy glow to your skin are offered to suit our patients’ different skin types and treatment preferences.
- Laser and intense pulsed light therapies: The latest laser and light technologies can do wonders for a variety of skin conditions, such as lightening brown spots, eliminating/reducing blood vessels and facial redness. These devices also stimulate collagen when used on an ongoing basis.
- Chemical peels: We offer chemical peels with minimal to no down time to reveal brighter, healthier skin; different formulations can be used to target specific issues, such as hyperpigmentation, dull skin, acne, fine lines, and more
- Radiofrequency therapy: Using Fractora, a radiofrequency device, we can rejuvenate wrinkled skin, discolorations, large pores, scars, and acne
- Medical-grade skin care products: Daily home care can help ensure that your skin stays beautiful and glowing in between office treatments and can help prevent damage from the sun and environmental toxins; we can custom-design a skincare regimen for you that is best suited for your skin type, including cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreens, and anti-aging products
- Ultherapy: Using the power of ultrasound waves, we can non-invasively tighten the skin on your face, chest, and neck
- Injectables: Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport can erase the active wrinkles that are caused by muscular contractions in the face, while dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Belotero, Restylane, and others boost lost volume due to aging and fill in wrinkles and lines
- …and more!
