Skin resurfacing treatments are a staple in celebrity skincare routines, and it is easy to understand why. As we age many complex biological processes lose their effectiveness, and we develop abnormal wound healing in the form of scars, pigmentation, and dermatological diseases. The demand for non-invasive skin resurfacing therapies fueled the development of advanced skincare treatments for the home and dermatologist’s office. By producing mild injuries in the skin, these treatments utilize the skin’s biological response to injury to restore the skin. These non-invasive treatments provide aesthetic and functional improvements in the skin.
At home, specific skincare products can encourage skin resurfacing by promoting cell turnover and exfoliation. Professional treatments in the form of deep chemical peels and laser therapies provide favorable outcomes when used in conjunction with a good skincare routine.
What Conditions Benefit from Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation?
Many skincare concerns can be alleviated and drastically improved by implementing both at-home and in-office resurfacing treatments. These treatments restore the skin by improving:
- Skin discoloration.
- Redness brought on by broken capillaries in our skin.
- Freckles and birthmarks.
- Large pores, and scars.
- Skin elasticity that decreases with age.
- Aged or sun-damaged skin.
The Best Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Several skin remodeling treatments may be performed at home and outside of the dermatologist’s office. Due to the complexity of these treatments, it is always best to consult with a dermatologist and develop a custom skincare treatment plan for your skin concerns.
Resurface Your Skin with Topical Agents and Chemical Peels
An improvement in your overall skin texture can be achieved by developing a collagen-producing skincare routine. To do so, begin by incorporating skin resurfacing products like retinol, mandelic acid, and alpha-hydroxy acids into your skincare routine. When used consistently and correctly, these topical agents may enhance the outcome of in-office procedures as well.
In-office chemical peels were once the secret to flawless skin. This conventional medical-grade treatment has and continues to be heavily utilized to improve skin texture. Mild peels, while less effective, have been developed for at-home use to gently remove the superficial layers of skin. At-home options like Laboratori Collagenil’s Soft-Peeling Antiaging treatment are gentle and great for regular use.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Cosmetic laser treatments are this summer’s hottest trend and can be seen all over social media. Many believe cosmetic lasers to be among the best skin resurfacing treatments. Dermatologists rely on two types of laser treatments to reduce the appearance of scars: non-ablative and ablative. While both non-ablative and ablative are powerful skincare tools, they both deliver different results and target different skin concerns.
Ablative lasers function by causing ablations (wounds) in the epidermis. The biological response to the heat-induced ablations causes skin restructuring, giving rise to smoother skin. By contrast, non- ablative lasers are much less invasive and do not vaporize the outer layers of the skin. Non-ablative lasers penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy for Skin Rejuvenation
Lasers, while great cosmetic treatments, can be very harsh on the skin. Depending on your cosmetic goals, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy may be an ideal alternative to laser treatments. IPL can be used to treat a variety of pigmentation issues and can deliver great cosmetic results without compromising the outer layer of the skin.
How to Optimize Your Resurfacing and Rejuvenating Treatments
It is highly recommended to use an at-home skincare routine to optimize the results of the resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments. A consistent at-home skincare routine will not only prevent additional skin damage but will also maintain the results of the treatments. Be sure to review our topical moisturizers to use during your skin healing process and continue to wear SPF in the sun.
