Like the eyes, your skin is very important part of your body. In fact, it’s the largest organ in your body, but it’s still easy to take skin for granted. Unless there’s a problem, you may not think about your skin very much but skin has an important job to do. Your skin is constantly protecting you keeping infections out of your body and keeping you from getting sick. When you take care of your skin, you’re helping your skin do its job and taking care of your skin today will help prevent future problems, like wrinkles and even skin cancer. Some of the more common issues are acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Treatments offered at SightMD for those common issues include:
Chemical Face Peels
Chemical peels, also called chemexfoliation or derma-peeling treatments, are cosmetic treatments performed on the face that are typically used as an anti-aging solution to rejuvenate the skin. Chemical peels are used to correct skin irregularities in texture, such as fine lines, and color, such as spots caused by sun damage. These peels have varying strengths, characterized by the different kinds of acids used in the applied chemical solution. Chemical-peel solutions use three main acid ingredients to reach varying levels of intensity: alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layers of the skin that are damaged using a procedure that stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells in the underlying layers of the skin. Laser resurfacing is now used to eliminate or reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is a highly popular treatment because it’s minimally invasive and, in many cases, shows immediate results. Using lasers to stimulate and heat collagen through pulses of light, laser skin tightening causes the collagen to “restrict,” which, in turn, tightens the skin. It can be used on essentially any area of the face or body for various skin-related issues.
The vampire facelift is a procedure that creates the youthful, rejuvenating effects of a facelift without an actual surgery. Instead, the vampire facelift gets its name because it incorporates PRP extracted from blood which is then mixed with different dermal fillers to give patients a refreshed look.
