Skin Rejuvenation Q&A

What is skin rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation refers to procedures that work in several different ways to boost skin healing and cell turnover. If your primary concerns with your skin include dryness, peeling, wrinkles, and age spots, Dr. Rheaume helps you explore treatment options for effective and long-lasting skin rejuvenation.

When you first arrive for your appointment at AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, Dr. Rheaume looks over your skin and asks about your most pressing skin concerns. She also discusses your medical history, which can affect the effectiveness of treatments in some cases. 

If you decide that skin rejuvenation is right for you, Dr. Rheaume explains the process in detail and what you can expect while healing after your procedure. Some skin rejuvenation treatments require more than one session to get ideal results. 

What are my options for skin rejuvenation?

AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta offers skin rejuvenation treatments in the office with little or no downtime. Dr. Rheaume might recommend:

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis uses single-wavelength laser light to deliver energy to your skin cells, which they convert into heat. The heat stimulates the production of firming collagen fibers and new, healthier skin cells. Laser Genesis treats wrinkles, roughness, and large pores. 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy

IPL therapy is a treatment using a bright, multi-wavelength light to disperse pigments in your skin. It treats vascular lesions, freckles, age spots, and sun damage. 

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy, or a non-surgical facelift, tightens your skin using harmless micro-focused ultrasound technology. It can lift your brows and treat sagging skin features, like jowls and prominent wrinkles.

IV hydration therapy

You have several options for IV hydration therapy formulas, including one for health and beauty. This formula treats chronic skin dehydration leading to rough patches and wrinkles. 

How should I care for my skin after skin rejuvenation?

Specific aftercare instructions vary between skin rejuvenation treatments, but there are a few steps you can take to promote excellent skin health regardless of your choice of treatment. Caring for your skin not only keeps it hydrated but also slows the development of signs of aging like dryness and wrinkles. 

After your skin rejuvenation treatment at AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, or between treatments, you should:

  • Use gentle products that don’t irritate your skin
  • Apply sunscreen every day
  • Avoid direct sunlight and other sources of ultraviolet light, like tanning beds
  • Moisturize your skin regularly
  • Cleanse your skin regularly
  • Stop smoking
  • Eat a balanced diet

If you’re looking for helpful product recommendations, Dr. Rheaume can offer suggestions based on your skin’s type and health.
