A few options are available when someone is seeking treatment to restore skin for several reasons; to allow skin to have a more youthful appearance, to remove scaring from surgeries or acne, and to reduce wrinkling or damage to skin from sun exposure. Chemical peeling uses a combination of chemicals to cause skin cells to respond by creating new cells and older cells of skin slowly are able to be peeled away from the skin surface.
Dermabrasion uses diamond, metal or crystal material like silica or sodium to physically remove layers of skin in a controlled manner to encourage the growth of new cells and actually remove layers of older skin cells.
New forms of makeup are available that can be applied in a very fine layer to allow skin to look more natural and not cause skin to appear heavily covered. Over time, using and removing makeup may cause more wear to skin. Chemical or mechanical methods are at times to harsh for skin that is sensitive to these methods.
Not all patients are able to benefit from these types of procedures to improve the skin in very specific areas. Skin has different thickness depending on where it is located and it can be difficult to limit the effects of abrasives or chemicals across these different thickness of skin.
Another option that is more recently available is Laser Skin Treatment in Waimea. As new skin cells are encouraged to grow the appearance of the skin is improved. Laser Skin Treatment is very focused and controlled allowing for even treatment across areas of skin that have very different thickness. This type of therapy works by causing new skin cells to be stimulated without some of the potential side effects of chemical peeling and dermabrasion, or the regular application and removal of makeup.
When anyone is looking for treatment for the skin it is important to work with medical professionals who are experienced in this kind of procedure so that the best results are obtained.
