What is skin rejuvenation therapy?
Skin rejuvenation at Academic Dermatology in Edina combines medical and aesthetic services which enhance facial appearance safely and dramatically. With your realistic goals in mind, Dr. Tope will review your medical history and examine your facial features, skin tone and aesthetic concerns, compiling the best course of treatment.
Skin rejuvenation therapy addresses problems such as:
- Static and dynamic wrinkling from sun exposure, smoking and the aging process
- Uneven and dull skin tone
- Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
- Skin sagging
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scarring and other superficial scarring
- Blood vessels which are noticeable below the surface of the skin
Critical to skin rejuvenation are good overall health, realistic skin goals, smoking cessation and commitment to continued protection from the sun, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Available skin rejuvenation treatments
There are several. One of the most popular is BOTOX Cosmetic. A purified and injectable form of the Botulism toxin, BOTOX is applied to areas of dynamic wrinkling across the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes and at the sides of the mouth. The medication reduces muscular movement, and therefore, the obvious appearance of frown and smile lines. BOTOX is a half-hour treatment and causes no downtime.
Another common cosmetic service is laser resurfacing. An expert in, and teacher of, laser techniques, Dr. Tope uses short, intense bursts of light to smooth skin texture and stimulate collagen production. Collagen promotes youthful skin elasticity. Laser skin treatments are comfortable, safe and long-lasting.
Finally, dermal fillers are injectable gels which increase skin volume in the cheeks, lips and under the eyes. FDA-approved, many of these medications feature hyaluronic acid as the key component. It's a naturally-occurring chemical, readily accepted by the body. The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery reports that one million American adults--both men and women--use fillers for quick, lasting and effective facial contouring and rejuvenation.
