We start out in life with beautiful, clear, tender skin, but over time, aging, hormonal changes, and the elements can cause a number of flaws and conditions that can make individuals feel self-conscious and unattractive. Today, a range of products and procedures can help restore skin to its clearer, more even state. At Face and Body by Iannotti, we can analyze and treat your skin problem for a brighter and more youthful appearance.
Reviving Dull, Tired Skin
Facial skin can take a beating from dry, indoor air, outdoor activities or from overuse of cosmetic products. Your efforts to undo the damage may not be possible because of these factors. A procedure called fractional CO2 laser treatment can help to improve the tone and texture of your skin. The process, which stimulates collagen production and tightens skin, requires minimal downtime and can be customized for your needs, providing a brighter, more attractive appearance.
After fractional CO2 treatments, you will be able to enjoy social interaction more, knowing your skin is fresh, supple and youthful.
Depending on the depth of the treatment, downtime may extend from just a few days to a week, to allow redness and peeling to subside. A special skin care regime will help you to maintain the improved appearance.
Smoothing Uneven Texture
You may notice that some parts of your facial skin look fairly smooth, but other areas appear lumpy, bumpy and uneven. These problems are common and can make you feel older and less attractive than you are.
A sublative resurfacing treatment can help to restructure the surface of the skin, reduce pore size and improve collagen production to provide greater evenness and a more youthful look.
Sublative resurfacing requires some downtime, with two to three days of redness and peeling for up to a week. Increased collagen production and skin improvement can continue up to a year after the procedure.
Blending Inconsistent Skin Coloring
Another common problem is inconsistent coloring of the facial skin, often called “hyperpigmentation.” The problem is caused by sun damage, hormonal changes from pregnancy and taking birth control pills, as well as from surface skin injuries that trigger excess melanin production. The result is a blotchy, uneven appearance that may show up on photographs and cause feelings of unattractiveness.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) photorejuvenation can help to reduce unevenness, minimize age spots, redness and brown blotches, so you look your best from any angle. Photorejuvenation will help you to look younger and feel more attractive with greater confidence in your appearance.
IPL treatment requires only a few days of downtime depending on the patient.
In some cases, an individual’s skin can have scarring from minor injuries, acne or other issues. The surface of the skin may become pockmarked or have raised areas where surface wounds have healed. Even when the scar is quite small and hardly noticeable, it can cause self-consciousness and a feeling of unattractiveness. You may avoid taking pictures with friends or resort to using heavy makeup to cover the flaw.
The DOT therapy method of fractional CO2 laser treatments can help to minimize scarring, leaving a smoother, more even appearance on the surface of your skin, which allows you to feel more confident. You will feel free to take those close-up selfies and enjoy close contact with loved ones.
Fractional CO2 laser treatments will require from two to seven days of downtime to allow for peeling and redness, depending on the depth of the treatment. Your physician will provide complete instructions for skin care after the procedure.
