Many people are ashamed of revealing their skin or have lower confidence because of unsightly scars and skin damage, particularly on the face. Many people suffer scarring on the face as a result of acne. This type of skin damage can be very detrimental to a person’s self-image, diminishing self-worth and self-confidence. Scarring, sun damage and skin disease are particularly difficult issues to deal with as they are not easily corrected. Intensive and long term treatment is often necessary to help heal and vanish these skin issues. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help to heal rejuvenate and transform skin on the deepest level possible, allowing for skin renewal and the fading of scars. Here we look at some of the most popular and effective skin treatments to help fade scars, reverse damage and soothe irritated skin.
Laser Genesis Treatment
Laser genesis treatment is a new and highly effective treatment that targets skin renewal and correction of issues such as skin scarring, and redness due to skin damage or rosacea. Laser genesis treatment can also help to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and fade unsightly capillaries and small veins from the surface of the skin. Laser genesis works by targeting the deepest layers of the skin to gently heat them in order to stimulate new collagen production.
As the production of new collagen gets stimulated, it takes some time for the old cells to be sloughed away and the new collagen to emerge on the surface of the skin. Over time the skin naturally becomes smoother, the appearance of scars and imperfections is removed or diminished, and skin has more glow, resilience and beauty than ever before.
Fraxel® Laser Treatment
Fraxel® Laser treatment is the highest quality, medical grade laser treatment available to help produce skin renewal and rejuvenation. The Fraxel® Re:store DUAL drastically improves the texture of the skin, restores ageing skin and reverses sun-damage and is the treatment of choice for acne scars. One of its other advantages is that it can be used on all skin types, including Asian and darker skin.
Fraxel® laser treatments also work by penetrating deep into the layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote healing from within.
Chemical Skin Peels
Chemical skin peels have often been a popular choice for scar and skin damage correction, helping to slough away old and dull skin cells to reveal new and more vital skin underneath. Although some lower grade peels can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions, chirally-correct, pure and naturally sourced chemical peels produce little to no irritation or allergies, meaning a better outcome for your skin.
Chemical skin peels work by using chemicals to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells and damaged cells from the surface of the skin. This encourages scars and skin damage to fade and supports the renewal of the skin as underlying new skin layers are given the chance to emerge.
Microdermabrasion is another effective exfoliation treatment that helps to remove dead and damaged skin cells in order to stimulate the production of new, fresh skin cells. As opposed to skin peels which are a form of chemical exfoliation, microdermabrasion is a form of physical exfoliation, which uses tiny exfoliating crystals that are sprayed onto the skin.
Microdermabrasion is gentler than harsher forms of skin exfoliation such as dermabrasion requiring less downtime and no need for skin numbing. The exfoliation helps to resurface and restructure skin that may be damaged or scarred due to the effects of the sun or acne, revealing deeper layers of skin that are smoother, clearer and flawless.
Although scarring and skin damage can look unsightly and contribute to feelings of low self esteem and low confidence, there are effective, safe and appealing ways to transform the look of the skin for toned, unblemished and younger looking skin. By consulting with a qualified cosmetic surgeon, dermatologist or skin professional and choosing the best approach to treating your skin, you can achieve better results for total skin renewal and rejuvenation.
