Nonsurgical Skin Treatments to Help Improve Your Complexion

We all want a smooth, even, youthful-looking complexion. However, the sun, skin disorders, aging, and even genetics can all contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body. These include textural irregularities like wrinkles and acne scars and pigmentation changes like freckles, sunspots, or visible blood vessels. In addition, skin may lose tone, feel less firm, and lose the healthy glow that is evident in younger skin.

At MDSkin, we offer a selection of the most effective nonsurgical skin solution to help address any skin irregularities you may have.

Treatment Options

There are different treatment modalities available to treat the different aspects of skin damage. Laser resurfacing, mechanical resurfacing, chemical peels, and injectable products can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the entire face or those that develop in specific regions of the face, such as the upper lip and around the eyes. These treatments can also be used to address pigmentation disorders, such as sun and age spots, and they can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars or other skin conditions.

The specific type of treatment that will best address your concerns are determined after a consultation with your board-certified plastic surgeon or provider at MDSkin. Most skin treatments require a series of treatments and a multi-modality approach to achieving excellent results. Most importantly, the patient must be committed to protecting his or her skin going forward so that the results achieved will be longer lasting.

The following nonsurgical skin treatment are offered at MDSkin:

Laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments

Used to remove discoloration and/or tighten sagging skin. It can also correct pigmentation issues, large pores, and broken blood vessels.

Chemical Peels

Various acid peels are used in different combinations to remove damaged outer skin layers for a radiant glow.

Ablative Laser Treatments (Fractional, CO2 Lasers)

Remove the outermost layers of skin to smooth lines and wrinkles.

Mechanical Ablation (Dermabrasion, Dermaplaning)

Surgical scraping methods to soften skin surface irregularities for a smooth complexion.

Non-Ablative Treatments (Microdermabrasion, Microneedling, Light Acid Peels)

Minimally invasive sanding methods to treat light scarring and discolorations for even skin.

Dermal Fillers

Injectable compounds to improve skin contouring. Dermal fillers can address lines around the nose and mouth, as well as restore lost facial volume for a more youthful appearance.

Botulinum Toxin Type A Treatments (Botox, Dysport)

Every patient is unique and will exhibit different combinations of genetic and environmental signs of aging that impact their skin. There are multiple ways to treat many of these issues, and those treatment methods should be planned and discussed with your board-certified plastic surgeon based on your specific situation and desires.
