Trying to maintain an attractive and flawless complexion can be difficult since other factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, smoking cigarettes or marijuana, dry climate, sun exposure, or age can have significant impacts on skin health. Many men and women often seek resolutions to correct their facial flaws through cosmetic procedures, while others who wish to avoid surgery lean toward at-home skincare routines.
Although some treatments can have some minor positive effects, home remedies do not provide the deeper correction your skin may require. Thankfully, Dr. Hiatt can provide his patients with various non-surgical procedures to improve and transform their complexion.
Obagi® Blue Peel RADIANCE®
Patients looking to enhance their skin for a younger appearance can benefit from using Obagi® Blue Peel RADIANCE®. Containing lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acids, this non-surgical facial chemical peel will exfoliate and improve your overall appearance to provide smoother and brighter-looking skin. Obagi® will not only improve dull, rough skin and reduce aging, but will also treat fines lines, wrinkles, scarring, and blemishes.
Exposure from the sun, as well as hormonal changes during pregnancy, can cause discoloration and damage to your skin, often called sunspots. Photofacial is an FDA-approved facial rejuvenation treatment that uses laser technology on the surface of your face to improve the appearance of your skin. Laser energy is absorbed by colors depending on their wavelength to help soften the color mismatch and reduce signs of aging like dark spots, acne scars, broken capillaries, and fine lines.
Fractional laser treatment is another non-surgical option that can help reduce signs of aging and improve damaged skin. The laser penetrates to the deeper layer on the surface of the skin to stimulate contraction and cause collagen to form within the treated area while new and healthy skin cells are produced during the healing process. Fractional laser treatment will be able to improve the following facial issues:
- Dark spots
- Fine lines
- Scarring from acne, previous surgery, and burns
Once treatment is completed, you may experience some redness during the first 48 hours of recovery. The skin may also feel as though it has been sunburned. Patients must have healthy circulation to the skin if they wish to undergo this treatment.
