Laser resurfacing helps to stimulate the natural production of collagen fibres in the skin. The treatment works by delivering laser energy into the skin that targets the damaged tissues. The doctor will pass over the depressed skin several times with the laser device until the energy reaches the middle layer of the dermis.
In some cases, patients are allowed to stay awake during the process as they will be given medication to fight off the pain. Even though they decide to not be awake during the procedure, a topical anaesthetic will still be applied to the targeted area to lessen the pain that may come with the treatment. For better results, patients are required to undergo multiple sessions of laser resurfacing.
Fillers or Dermal fillers are effective solutions in treating certain skin issues such as wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, crows feet, and saggy skin. This treatment may sometimes be mistaken for Botox treatment. The difference between the two procedures is that Botox is a muscle paralyzer while fillers are used to fill in depressed skin areas to plump it up for a smoother appearance.
Various filler substances are used in the aesthetic industry. Such substances include lactic acid, collagen, autologous fat transplant, and hyaluronic acid. Years ago, doctors would usually use collagen for a filler substance. But because of the recent discoveries of the capabilities of the filler substances, medical professionals find them more effective than collagen.
This treatment helps to stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother and firmer skin complexion. The device used in this treatment contains aluminium crystals; that’s why microdermabrasion is sometimes referred to as “sanding the skin”. There is this so-called home microdermabrasion, but such are not as effective as the ones you can get at a proper clinic.
A thread lift is a non-invasive alternative to a facelift. The treatment works by pulling the skin tissue in a direction that will lift the saggy skin. This will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Only a medical professional can carry out this procedure as it includes inserting a stiff thread into the depressed skin with proper precision. The good thing about a thread lift is that it only has minimal downtime.
