Some New Year’s resolutions are hard to keep, like losing weight, quitting smoking, and cutting back on social media. But one thing you can do with ease is rejuvenate your skin.
Dr. Divina Averilla at Love Your Body Medical Spa can help take years of your skin with a variety of treatments, such as:
Each of these treatments can do wonders for your skin, but they use different techniques and target different issues. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may recommend one or a combination of two or more treatment types.
If you’re interested in a procedure that can smooth your fine lines and wrinkles, tighten and lift your sagging skin, and rejuvenate your face, consider a Dermapen® facial. Here’s what it can do for you.
If you’re beginning to look a little older than you really are, chances are it’s because your skin is betraying you. As you age, your skin loses some of the plumpness you were born with. One reason for that is a loss of collagen and elastin — two proteins essential for youthful, smooth, resilient skin.
Dr. Averilla uses Dermapen to administer medical microneedling, a process that makes tiny, little pin pricks all over the surface of your skin as well as the layer beneath the surface. Your body reacts to these micro “injuries” by sending healing agents to the scene to help increase the production of collagen and elastin.
Over time, this increase in collagen and elastin restores the lost volume in your skin, smooths out the wrinkles, tightens sagging skin, and make you look years younger.
Adding insult to injury, acne scars are a lasting reminder of the trauma of adolescence. Nothing on the drugstore shelf can get rid of the divots, pock marks, and dark spots — but Dermapen can.
In the hands of a professional like Dr. Averilla, Dermapen can reduce the look of acne scars and improve the texture of your skin with just a few treatments.
Large pores are genetic, and they cause no health concerns at all. But it might cause you cosmetic concern. If you don’t like the look of your large pores, Dermapen can minimize them and give your facial skin a more uniform look.
Hyperpigmentation, otherwise known as age spots, can give away your age and make makeup tricky. Whether yours came from overexposure to the sun, melasma (dark patches caused by hormonal changes), or just the aging process, you don’t have to live with uneven skin tone.
Microneedling with Dermapen decreases the darkened pigmentation and reduces the appearance of spots and patches. Dr. Averilla often recommends a regimen of skin-lightening cream and strong sunscreen following the procedure for best results.
Dermapen treats an array of skin issues, and when it’s incorporated into your facial at Love Your Body Medical Spa, you can walk away with a fresher, younger-looking, rejuvenated face — Happy New Year! If you’re ready to give Dermapen a try, give us a call or request an appointment online.
