If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution to younger-looking skin, skin resurfacing is a fantastic option. Skin resurfacing treatments can help improve the appearance of your skin by removing damaged cells and stimulating collagen production. At SANTÉ Aesthetics and Wellness in Portland, OR, we offer various skin rejuvenation treatments that can help you achieve the results you want without surgery.
Skin resurfacing, or skin rejuvenation, is a broad term that can refer to any treatment that helps to improve the appearance of the skin. This can be done using various methods, including lasers, chemicals, and mechanical abrasion. Skin rejuvenation can offer numerous benefits, including reduced wrinkles, improved skin texture, and decreased sun damage.
There are many different types of skin rejuvenation treatments available, and the best option for you will depend on your goals and your skin type. Some of the most effective skin rejuvenation techniques include The Icon 1540 Erbium Fractional Laser, MicroSpot Erbium YAG, MicroPeel, and Potenza RF Microneedling. Each of these treatments has its own unique advantages, and we will help you choose the best option for your needs.
The Icon 1540 Erbium Fractional Laser
The Icon 1540 Erbium fractional laser is a state-of-the-art laser device that can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. The laser uses a beam of light to target specific areas of the skin, causing microscopic injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing process.
The resulting collagen and elastin production helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. The laser energy penetrates both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin deeply, making The Icon 1540 Erbium fractional laser an ideal treatment for those who want to achieve long-lasting results.
MicroSpot Erbium YAG
The MicroSpot Erbium YAG is a hand-held device that uses a 2940 nm laser system to treat photoaging and other cutaneous lesions. The device has three treatment modes: Ablation, Therm, and MicroSpot. The Ablation mode is used to remove the top layer of skin, the Therm mode is used to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production, and the MicroSpot mode is used to target small areas of the skin.
The main advantage of the MicroSpot Erbium YAG is its ability to target small areas of the skin with precision and minimal damage to surrounding tissue. In addition, the integrated smoke evacuator helps to reduce the risk of burns and other complications.
Prescription Grade Peels
At its simplest, a chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the dead skin cells to slough off and eventually peel off. The new skin that is revealed is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Chemical peels are often used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and other signs of aging.
We offer several different types of peels at our office, including MicroPeel. The MicroPeel is essentially the Biorepeel 35% TCA. This peel is microneedled into the skin during treatment to help with collagen stimulation and skin rejuvenation. The Biorepeel 35% TCA helps to reverse the signs of aging. Our other peel options include the Sante Universal peel, Sante Advanced peel, Glycolic peel, and Enzyme peel.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that involves using a hand-held device to improve the appearance of the skin. It works by creating tiny punctures in the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking.
Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, and pigmentation. We offer two types of microneedling: regular microneedling and Potenza RF microneedling.
Potenza RF Microneedling
This 4-mode RF microneedling system combines monopolar and bipolar RF in a single device, making it a versatile treatment option for many different skin types and conditions. The tiny needles create microscopic wounds in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process.
In addition, the radiofrequency energy helps to remodel the collagen in the skin, resulting in a smoother, firmer appearance. At our office, we make custom serums in conjunction with microneedling to treat specific skin concerns.
Potenza RF Microneedling With PRP
The Potenza RF Microneedling with PRP is a new and innovative treatment for skin rejuvenation. It combines the power of radiofrequency energy with the benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other concerns. Together, these two treatments work synergistically to help improve the overall appearance of the skin.
Potenza RF Microneedling With Exosomes
The added benefit of exosomes makes this an even more powerful treatment. Exosomes are tiny vesicles that are derived from stem cells. They are packed full of nutrients and growth factors that can help to improve the health and appearance of the skin. When administered during microneedling, exosomes can help to speed up the healing process and improve the results of the treatment.
Potenza RF Microneedling With PRF
PRF, or platelet-rich fibrin, is a natural substance that accelerates healing. It is derived from the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of allergy or rejection. By injecting PRF into the skin after or during microneedling, patients can enjoy quicker results.
Microdermabrasion is a safe, effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. It involves using a small, hand-held device to sand away the top layer of skin. This process removes dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new ones. It can also help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
Microdermabrasion usually requires no downtime or pain medication. When performed regularly, microdermabrasion can help slow the aging process and maintain healthy, radiant skin.
