Skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure used to refresh and revitalize the surface of the skin. Some patients choose skin rejuvenation simply to improve the texture and overall appearance of their skin, whereas others undergo the procedure to minimize the appearance of certain dermal characteristics. For example, skin rejuvenation is especially effective for reducing the appearance of visibly static facial wrinkles, expression lines, scars, visible blood vessels, and hyper-pigmentation. It can also be used to restore firmness and tone to skin with weakened collagen and elastin fibers.
We often recommend skin rejuvenation treatment for non-smoking patients who are physically healthy and in search of non-surgical procedures that can restore a youthful appearance to their skin. There are several types of skin rejuvenation treatments, including laser skin resurfacing. The use of lasers in skin rejuvenation treatments makes it possible for Dr. Deram to perform these procedures with intricate precision and control. The energy from the laser helps remove damaged skin and simultaneously stimulate the growth of collagen in the healthy skin beneath. Most patients are in and out of the office in less than two hours, returning home the same day.
