No matter how happy you are with the face you have, you probably aren’t happy about the lines, hyperpigmented areas, or acne scars that mar its appearance. Fortunately, you can do a number of things to resolve the problems.
Our team of aestheticians at Pure Touch Skin Center has lots of experience transforming clients’ complexions from drab to dazzling. Which treatment you go with depends on your specific skin problems, the overall health of your skin, and your aesthetic goals. The team, though, wants to highlight three treatments that are generally well received, to get you started on your new skincare journey.
3 treatments that transform your skin’s complexion
Here are three solid treatments for addressing an array of skin problems.
Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses a series of tiny needles to create micro-injuries to the skin. The injuries trigger your body’s repair systems, which send healing and growth factors to the site, as well as stimulate collagen and elastin production.
We can’t overstress the importance of collagen and elastin for your skin. These fibrous proteins build a lattice that supports the skin’s structure, giving it strength and resilience. Your body starts decreasing production when you’re in your mid-20s, which leads to lines, wrinkles, creases, and sags. However, by stimulating new protein production, you can effectively “turn back the clock” on your appearance.
We use the FDA-cleared SkinPen® for our microneedling treatments. The pen-sized device can create hundreds of mini-punctures within minutes. It uses straight, evenly spaced, and adjustable needles that provide access to even the most hard-to-reach areas, leading to even results.
You can ramp up your microneedling experience with the Morpheus8 system. This noninvasive treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to penetrate to deeper skin layers than traditional microneedling can reach.
Morpheus8 improves your skin by using multiple proven methods in a single device. As we move the device across the top of your skin, the fractional RF lasers resurface and smooth your outer skin layers, while the tiny, subdermal pins gently heat the underlying tissue, triggering collagen and elastin production. And because the injuries are so small, you heal quickly. In addition to its anti-aging properties, this treatment option works on both active cystic acne and acne scars.
Lumecca uses the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy (photothermolysis) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. Patients notice significant improvements in their complexion and clarity of skin, even after just a single session. Lumecca essentially provides a photofacial through a noninvasive and comfortable light treatment.
Lumecca conveniently addresses age/sun spots, other sun damage, vascular lesions (e.g. spider veins), rosacea (skin reddening), and freckles.
A HydraFacial uses medical-grade hydradermabrasion with a patented three-part regimen: cleansing, exfoliating, and infusing skin with nourishing serums. Regular dermabrasion blasts skin with a grit to exfoliate dead cells, but a HydraFacial uses vortex technology (a solution of salicylic acid, willow bark extract, and anti-inflammatory Tasmanian pepper) to gently vacuum out your pores while simultaneously infusing your skin with moisture and other nourishing compounds..
A HydraFacial treatment is ideal to combat acne and other breakouts, wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. When combined with other treatments, it even addresses flaky precancerous lesions called actinic keratoses.
The HydraFacial is less technician-dependent than many other types of facials, and it produces consistent results without blistering, burning, or causing pain. It also comes with no downtime, and you’ll see your results as soon as you’re done.
