Patients often come to Academic Dermatology in Edina, MN with questions about how to achieve smoother, younger looking skin. New solutions are available at the dermatologist’s office that can give you a fresh start. Learn how skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments can help you show the world a brand new you.
How You Feel About Your Looks Affects Your Self-Confidence
The way that you feel about how you look and present yourself to the world can have a significant effect on your self-confidence and self- esteem. Your level of self-confidence can affect everything from the way you communicate with others to the motivation you have for getting your work done every day. Your face is the first thing that people see when they meet you in social and professional settings, which is why facial skin rejuvenation is such a popular request from dermatology patients.
The Effects of Aging and the Sun
Over time, the skin can lose its luster and tightness. This is usually caused by the general effects of aging and overexposure to the sun. Your nutrition and lifestyle choices like smoking and the abuse of alcohol can also play a part. The skin can become more wrinkled, discolored, patchy and scarred. Luckily, these are all problems that can be resolved with skin rejuvenation treatments at Academic Dermatology in Edina.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment that removes the old surface of the skin so that new, healthier looking skin can grow back. The dermatologist uses a laser tool to get rid of the old layer of skin, then allows time for the skin to heal and regenerate new cells. Resurfacing is used to treat a number of problems, including:
- Sun damage
- Wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes
- Brown or blotchy spots
- Unwanted benign skin growths, like moles
- Acne and scars
It’s important that you closely follow doctor’s orders following a treatment to ensure proper healing—that includes staying out of the sun and using the prescribed ointment. Other resurfacing techniques are Dermabrasion and chemical peels.
