Orlando residents suffer from many of the same skin conditions common to other parts of the country. The main difference is that the many outdoor activities available in the area bring about more instances of sun damage and prematurely aging skin. Thankfully, you can always visit our Orlando dermatologist for first-class treatments.
One of the great things about our skin rejuvenation methods is the way they get you back into your daily activities almost immediately. In fact, many non-surgical treatments can be performed around your other daily activities.
Although there are many different skin rejuvenation techniques, they all have one thing in common: the removal of unwanted or damaged skin tissue. Basically, what we are doing is triggering your own body into replacing damaged skin with new skin that displays fewer imperfections like scars or signs of aging.
Microneedling has become an extremely popular non-surgical method for skin rejuvenation. It can safely and effectively treat common skin problems like wrinkles, stretch marks, blemishes, or scars caused by acne or trauma.
A microneedling session typically begins with the application of a numbing gel to ensure patient comfort. We then move the microneedling device over your skin. This device is coated in many tiny, sterile needles that penetrate the skin to a shallow depth. While invisible to the naked eye, these microscopic injuries promote the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers.
Microneedling can work on its own or be combined with other types of treatments. It is particularly effective when used in conjunction with topical skin care products. During your consultation, you can learn more about the details of the procedure and why our Orlando dermatologist commonly recommends it.
If you have noticed some skin wrinkling recently, a treatment with dermal fillers may be right for you. Although cosmetic surgery offers dramatic results, mild to moderate lines and wrinkles can usually be treated using a less drastic treatment option.
Hyaluronic acid is an important skin component that enhances skin moisture and thickness. Just as a water balloon has a smooth surface when full, your skin cells require hydration in order to keep wrinkles at bay. By injecting certain areas with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, we are replacing what you have lost due to the aging process or other factors.
