If you’re serious about anti-aging facial skin care, you owe it to yourself to investigate all the alternatives. While cosmetics might seem to be the logical solution, over time their cost might prove prohibitive. Botox injections, chemical peels or microdermabrasion can give superior (and more immediate) results that often justify the additional cost.
BOTOX, WITHOUT THE FROZEN LOOK
Botox injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles like the “frown lines” on your forehead. The treatment lasts three to six months, and lines and wrinkles either disappear or dramatically diminish during this period. Besides frown lines, Botox is effective on crow’s feet, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles. A medical doctor must administer Botox injections. After several treatments, some doctors report that the period of effectiveness is extended.
Chemical peels are meant to improve skin appearance and diminish wrinkles by removing one or more of the skin’s outer layers. Like Botox, chemical peels are done by a medical doctor at Pretty Faces Atlanta.
At Pretty Faces Atlanta we use several types of chemical peels. We offer TCA peels, in varying percentages, Neo-Peel, and VI Peel, which is our deepest, most aggressive chemical peel. Depending on the type of chemical peel used, patients may experience skin brightening and smoothing, removal of wrinkles and blemishes, and a more even skin tone.
PARISIAN PEEL CRYSTALLINE MICRODERMABRASION
Medical microdermabrasion is a non-chemical procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. At Pretty Faces Atlanta we use Parisian Peel Crystalline Microdermabrasion, which is much more effective than any at home exfoliation. Microdermabrasion is less aggressive than chemical peels and works well for women with sensitive skin. Treatments must be repeated for maximum effectiveness.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Dermaroller treatment is also known as collagen induction or microneedling. This involves making tiny punctures in the skin and putting platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood into the face (or other treatment area). This will give your skin a fresh, healthy glow!
The difference with Pretty Faces Atlanta is that all treatments are performed by a medical doctor. Hence we are able to provide more aggressive treatments to targeted areas, for maximum results that are more noticeable and longer lasting than do-it-yourself options available on the market.
While not for everyone, Botox injections, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and microneedling are all valid methods of anti-aging facial skin care. If you want fast results and are willing to spend the money, these treatments can provide significant improvements in skin texture and appearance.
