Skin rejuvenation is basically a cosmetic treatment, that seeks to restore a more youthful appearance on the face. Basically, facial rejuvenation can be obtained through both non-invasive and invasive methods. Non-invasive procedures can range from chemical peels to microdermabrasion and laser skin resurfacing. Invasive procedures can include Botox injections, dermabrasion, skin grafting, fat removal and muscle tightening.
When considering which of the skin rejuvenation treatments is right for you, it is important to take a comprehensive look at your skin. A consultation with a dermatologist is generally very helpful when considering which treatment is best for you. Many dermatologists are able to provide their patients with a brief assessment before they proceed with a treatment plan. During the assessment, a dermatologist will evaluate the skin’s texture as well as its overall appearance. Based upon the results of the assessment, the dermatologist may suggest a specific course of action for skin rejuvenation treatments.
Typically, non-invasive procedures such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion are only recommended for mild to moderate cases of facial rejuvenation. If the condition requires more invasive treatment, including surgery, the procedure will be performed by a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon. For laser skin resurfacing, typically only those with severely burned or damaged skin will be considered for this procedure.
