With spring quickly approaching, there is no better time to freshen up your skin and get a gorgeous glow. Preparing your skin for spring begins with a foundation consisting of a healthy diet, plenty of hydration and sleep, and nourishing skincare products. A professional treatment or two can also help you shed damaged skin cells and reveal fresh, dewy skin. Read on as Dr. Jonathan Grant and the team at Cascade Facial Surgery & Aesthetics suggest a few treatments to help you put your most beautiful face forward.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive in-office treatment that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, oversized pores or uneven skin texture. A needle-tipped pen-like device creates tiny injuries in the skin that trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response, flooding the area with new collagen and elastin. A series of microneedling treatments this spring can help you achieve smoother, softer and more even-looking skin.
Another minimally invasive treatment that can produce noticeable improvements in your skin is SilkPeel Dermalinfusion. We use it to treat dry, dull, sun-damaged or hyperpigmented skin. With the special SilkPeel device, we can simultaneously exfoliate dead skin cells, remove impurities from your pores and infuse your skin with treatment serums customized to your unique skin type. The 30-minute treatment requires no downtime, so you can immediately resume your regular activities after treatment.
Intense Pulsed Light
If sun or age spots, rosacea, facial spider veins, freckles, scars or other imperfections prevent you from enjoying a luminous complexion, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments may help. IPL uses pulses of light to target and eliminate pigmented areas and improve your skin tone. A series of four to six treatments is generally recommended.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
For a more dramatic change in your skin’s tone and texture, laser skin resurfacing may be a suitable treatment option. The procedure helps improve skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, scars and facial redness. It works by sending energy to the deep layers of the skin and stimulating collagen remodeling, which gradually tightens and tones the skin. In fractionated laser skin resurfacing, the laser ablates a fraction of the skin’s surface area, leaving areas untouched in between. This approach is engineered to reduce downtime after treatment.
