What is Skin Rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation is the process of improving the texture, tone, and appearance of your skin to restore a more youthful and radiant complexion. As we age, skin cell turnover slows down, leading to a dull, uneven tone and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin rejuvenation treatments help accelerate cell renewal, boost collagen production, improve elasticity and firmness, and reduce the visible signs of aging. The result is smoother, brighter, more toned skin that looks and feels rejuvenated.

Rejuvenate Skin with AquaGold

What is AquaGold?

AquaGold is a cutting-edge microinfusion treatment that rejuvenates the skin through a unique combination of precision and luxury. 

This advanced system employs hollow needles crafted from 24-karat gold, each finer than a human hair, to deliver a customized blend of treatments directly into the skin. 

These ultra-fine needles create microscopic channels in the dermis, allowing for the infusion of beneficial ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin, or specially tailored nutrient cocktails.

  • Improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles

What to Expect During the AquaGold Procedure

The AquaGold procedure is a sophisticated yet swift treatment, typically completed in under 30 minutes. At the outset, Dr. Smith ensures your comfort by applying a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment area.

The procedure involves the use of tiny, sterilized needles made of 24-karat gold, which are part of a specialized microneedling device. Dr. Smith skillfully presses these ultrafine needles against your skin, creating controlled micro-injuries that stimulate collagen and elastin production, key elements for skin firming.

Patients typically experience minimal to no pain during the treatment, thanks to the advanced design of AquaGold which ensures minimal irritation.

Reveal Fresher Skin with Chemical Peels

Overview of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are highly effective treatments that use special solutions to remove the outer damaged layers of skin and reveal newer, healthier-looking skin beneath.

The dermatologist-strength peel solutions (glycolic acid, salicylic acid, TCA, etc) create a controlled, superficial wound that triggers the body’s natural healing response. As the treated skin sheds off, fresh skin regenerates in its place.

Dr. Smith offers medical-grade peels in varying depths to treat a range of skin concerns, from improving skin tone and texture to reducing acne scars. He customizes the precise peel type, strength, and application technique based on your skin goals.

How Chemical Peels Rejuvenate Your Skin

With regular peels, Dr. Smith can transform the appearance of your skin by:

  • Smoothing away rough skin texture
  • Fading stubborn spots and acne scarring
  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Reducing breakouts and controlling acne
  • Evening out skin tone and pigmentation

Chemical peels enhance collagen growth and help your skin look its absolute best.

Customized Peels for Your Needs

Dr. Smith never takes a one-size-fits-all approach to chemical peels. He carefully evaluates each patient’s skin type and concerns to determine the best peel formula, strength, and application method.

His artistic expertise allows him to customize the peel for optimal, natural-looking results. At your consultation, he will explain how the peel will improve your skin and what to expect during the treatment.

Caring for Skin After Chemical Peels

The peel solutions work their magic in the days following the treatment. Dr. Smith will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you care for your skin during the healing process. Light flaking and some redness are normal as the skin regenerates.

Most patients only require 3-5 days of downtime following a light-medium depth peel from Dr. Smith. Schedule your peel ahead of any important events. With proper aftercare, you’ll be ready to show off your refreshed, glowing skin in no time. 

Restore a Youthful Complexion with Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, uses arrays of tiny needles to puncture the skin and create controlled micro-injuries. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen production and skin regeneration. The tiny wounds also allow for deeper absorption of serums applied during the treatment.

Benefits of Microneedling

By triggering significant collagen synthesis and skin cell turnover, microneedling offers exceptional skin rejuvenation results, including:

  • Smoother skin texture and tone
  • Reduction in fine lines and acne scarring
  • Tightened, firmer looking skin
  • Minimized enlarged pores
  • Overall skin rejuvenation

Microneedling is safe for all skin tones and types.

What to Expect During a Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling treatments are performed in-office by Dr. Smith and take about 30-60 minutes depending on the targeted area. The face is first numbed with a topical anesthetic cream for comfort.

Dr. Smith uses a pen-like device, containing sterile microneedles, to create micro-injuries across the treatment area. He may also apply skin-benefiting serums to allow for deeper product absorption.

You may feel some mild pinpoint bleeding and redness, but this will subsides within a few hours after the treatment. You can also expect some dryness and flaking for 2-3 days post-treatment.

Results emerge over the next 4-6 weeks as collagen regeneration continues. For best outcomes, a series of 3-6 sessions is recommended!
