Reverse and Rejuvenate
Rejuvenate yourself with a skin tightening or custom skin resurfacing solution, and reverse years of sun damage, wrinkles, acne and age spots. Dr. Siegel can analyze your skin to determine which method—dermabrasion (scraping layers away); chemical skin tightening; laser skin tightening (laser resurfacing); etc.—is best-suited to your skin type, and will meet your expectations for a rejuvenated, refreshed appearance.
How does it work?
Resurfacing and skin tightening remove old skin and signal your body to make new skin. These procedures discard the superficial skin layer (the epidermis), and penetrate to the deep skin layer (the dermis). The dermis is made of collagen, long fibers that loosen and stretch with age and sun damage. By penetrating the dermis, new collagen is formed to give your skin a more elastic and younger appearance. Then, as you heal, a new epidermis (top layer) forms, restoring a more youthful you.
Your recovery from these methods will depend on the depth of penetration in the dermis. Superficial chemical skin tightening that only removes the top layers of skin usually heals in about one week. Deeper tightening agents—such as laser resurfacing—provide more dramatic and longer-lasting results. But, because of their deeper skin penetration, these solutions take several weeks to heal.
Dr. Siegel can help you select the skin tightening option that will best match your individual skin type and condition. During your personal consultation, he will talk to you about:
- Your expectations for the procedure and what can realistically be achieved
- Whether skin tightening is the best solution for your concerns
- How your skin color and type, ethnic background, age, medical history and overall health will affect your results
