Aging is unavoidable, but non-surgical skin rejuvenation can help improve the facial aesthetic. Many factors (such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and excessive exposure to the sun) can reduce the production of collagen. A depletion of this vital protein can contribute to premature signs of aging or exacerbate existing facial imperfections. Targeting a displeasing complexion with microneedling or one of our specially peels from can address textural and pigmentation concerns, delivering beautiful and natural rejuvenation results.
What Skin Rejuvenation Can Improve
- Poor skin texture
- Uneven skin tone
- Pigmentation issues
- Skin laxity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Microneedling smooths away facial imperfections by creating tiny punctures on the surface of the skin, inducing the body’s natural regenerative responses. These micro-injuries trigger the production of both collagen and elastin, two proteins that are responsible for youthful skin elasticity and structure. A topical anesthetic ensures that the procedure is pain-free, and this treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Sun damage and the effects of the natural aging process can cause the skin to appear dull, blotchy, or wrinkled. The VI Peel® by VI Aesthetics is designed to remove dead skin cells and address textural concerns, revealing a softer and tighter surface. This revolutionary peel also protects the skin from future damage for lasting results. In as few as seven days, patients can enjoy a smoother, brighter complexion.
VI Peel® With Precision
Patients who struggle with severe signs of aging, sun damage, or melasma can enhance their VI Peel® with the Precision booster. This formula contains a higher concentration of the same anti-aging substances in the VI Peel®, allowing for deeper penetration and the prevention of subsequent damage. The result is a smooth, glowing facial aesthetic that lasts.
Results and Recovery
The healing time after a skin rejuvenation treatment depends on the desired extent of correction and techniques used. Typically, the skin may feel slightly irritated, comparable to sunburn, for a few days. During this initial stage of recovery, patients are advised to refrain from wearing makeup and exposing the skin to direct sunlight. Results will continue to improve in the weeks following treatment, as the skin replenishes its supply of collagen and elastin. Some patients achieve optimal results after multiple sessions.
Alternative Rejuvenation Treatments
Skin rejuvenation can produce beautiful, natural enhancement for patients who qualify. Others may benefit from alternative approaches or a combination of rejuvenation techniques. At Gentle Care Dentistry, we offer several aesthetic options, including:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®: help minimize the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily relaxing movement in specific facial muscles.
- Injectable fillers: reduce signs of aging by filling in fine lines and wrinkles or replenishing lost facial volume.
- PRP injections: stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration for natural, long-lasting results. PRP can also be applied topically during micro needling therapy for enhanced anti-aging effects.
Your specialist will discuss all of your facial rejuvenation options to determine the best approach for your needs during your consultation at Gentle Care Dentistry.
