How to resurface your skin and look younger

A healthy-looking face tells a lot about your health. As you age, get more exposure to sun rays, you tend to get fine lines on your face, get wrinkles, pigmentation, scars, and many other skin conditions.  All this can make one lose self-esteem and desire to look young again. Your Conroe skin rejuvenation specialist helps you take off some years from your face and regain your self-esteem.

At Family Life Medical, you will meet Dr. Scarborough and his team of specialists who will assess your skin and discuss your goals with you. Your doctor will design your treatment plan, which suits your skin. He will also discuss with you various treatments available in their clinic, such as Laser technology like Tempsure Envi, facial skin care products, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, micro-needling, Botox, and soft-tissue fillers, among others. 

When you visit your doctor, he will let you know if the cosmetic procedures are covered by insurance, so you need to consider the cost as you choose your skin rejuvenation procedure. Your doctor will also take you through the available methods to ensure you get enough details of each.

Microdermabrasion 

Your doctor will sand an area with tiny aluminum hydroxide crystals to create a smooth looking skin. There is no recovery needed, and it is not expensive.

Chemical peels

If you have wrinkles, superficial scarring, discoloration, or age spots, your doctor will use peels to treat you. He will apply an acid solution, usually glycolic or salicylic acid, to your skin to dissolve skin cells and remove the epidermis’s top layers. The effects depend on how deep the peel penetrates, depending on the solution used.

Microneedling

Your doctor will repeatedly apply an electric operated instrument which contains multiple small, thin sharp needles to your skin. Those needles will cause tiny injuries to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.

Tempsure Envi 

Your doctor will use this procedure to erase wrinkles, crepe, and cellulite. He will deliver radiofrequency to heat your skin gently; this increases your skin’s temperature for some time. The heat will trigger the body’s natural reaction for it to produce new collagen. The new collagen fibers are denser and tighter and will leave you with radiant, youthful skin. Your doctor will advise you to schedule a series of treatment and maintenance appointments to counteract elastin and collagen loss in your body.  Your doctor will let you know that you need 3-6 treatments and maintenance twice a year for crepe skin.  You will need 3-6 treatments for cellulite, and see your doctor once a year for care.

Soft tissue fillers

Your doctor will inject some soft-tissue fillers like hyaluronic acid, which are absorbed by the body, under your skin to add height to cheekbones, fill fine vertical lines, improve the jawline and diminish surgical scars.

Botox

Your doctor will let you know that for temporarily smoothening a wrinkled face, brow, or neck, you can use botox. He will inject you with botulinum toxin, which has few risks and no recovery time needed.
