Non-invasive and minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedures are becoming extremely popular right now in Jacksonville, FL and elsewhere, and for good reason. While not offering as dramatic results as a facelift, these treatments can significantly enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for surgery that can be risky and involve a great deal of downtime.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable products that we can use to enhance facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Each product has a certain length of time that it is effective; after the time has passed, the product will need to be replenished through additional injections at our office in Jacksonville, FL.
One of the most popular dermal fillers contains hyaluronic acid. This substance is manufactured by your own body in large amounts when you are young. As you grow older, your body produces less and less of this beneficial acid, and your skin begins to grow thinner and more prone to the formation of lines and wrinkles as a result. The dermal filler injection can basically replace the acid that you have lost because of the aging process. This can help reverse the process of skin aging, rebuilding healthy skin in the process.
What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is simply a chemical solution that we apply to your skin, which encourages the removal of outer skin layers that have become damaged due to factors like sun exposure and aging. Chemical peels come in different basic types. The type that you require depends upon your own unique individual skin condition and goals, as well as our team’s recommendations regarding skin rejuvenation.
Superficial chemical peels only affect the outermost skin layer. This treatment is similar to undergoing a skin exfoliation, brightening and lightening your complexion so that your skin appears more youthful and vibrant. Since superficial chemical peels are quite gentle, you may require multiple treatments at our office in Jacksonville, FL for more stubborn skin conditions. It all depends on the unique situation.
