As we age, our skin’s elasticity tends to decline and the appearance of our skin can become rougher and dryer. While certain lifestyle factors, such as wearing sunscreen and eating healthy, can promote healthy skin and extend its vitality, skin resurfacing treatments can touch up the appearance of your skin when aging starts to catch up with your body. Austin surgeon Dr. Anand Patel and the specialized staff at Devenir Aesthetics provide a wide range of body enhancement procedures, including skin tightening treatments.
We offer two types of skin resurfacing procedures that are both safe and effective. One of these treatments uses a fractional laser, Active/Deep/Total Fx, to treat the upper layer of your skin. As the upper layer of skin peels off, the laser encourages the regeneration of a newer layer of healthy, younger-looking skin beneath.
Some of the benefits of fractional laser treatments include:
- Skin tightening
- Minimize wrinkles, discolorations and fine lines
- Faster healing process – maximum one week of downtime following procedure
- Treat your face, neck and chest, as well as scar and stretch mark tissue
An alternative skin resurfacing treatment is a radio frequency approach known as Thermage. This treatment uses a small probe to emit radio frequency energy directly to your skin, heating the dermis without causing any damage. Over time, this process will encourage the development of new collagen, which improves skin elasticity and overall appearance.
Some benefits of the Thermage skin resurfacing treatment include:
- Non-invasive skin treatment
- No downtime following treatment – resume your daily routine immediately
- Applicable to same parts of the body as fractional laser treatments
- Can be used to help reduce cellulite
Regardless of the treatment option you choose, patients should see results develop within two to six months after starting their treatment.
