At Lloyds Medical Group, we offer many different medical aesthetic treatments for skin. One of the most popular is our acne scar laser treatment. This laser treatment can reduce the appearance of acne scars by up to 80% in just a few sessions. We also have something called Ellansé dermal filler that treats wrinkles and other skin imperfections.
Chemical Peel Skin Treatment
Chemical peels are an excellent treatment to improve the look of your skin. Chemical peels use chemical solutions that dissolve away layers of dead surface cells, revealing new healthier, and younger-looking skin underneath. A chemical peel can brighten your complexion by removing dark spots caused by sun damage or acne scars. Chemical peels are performed using a chemical solution, such as glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), applied on the skin’s surface with a cotton swab or gauze pad. The amount of time that you leave it on will determine how deep the peel penetrates.
You can feel a little stinging or burning with some peels, but it shouldn’t be too uncomfortable and usually lasts only several minutes. The treated skin is then rinsed off to neutralize the chemical solution.
Discovery Pico Laser Series
The most commonly used laser for skin resurfacing is the Pico Laser. This laser has been developed to create a parallel-line beam of light that can be targeted onto small, precise areas with minimal collateral damage or undesirable side effects. The UltraPulse CO₂ Fractional Laser System uses real-time feedback to monitor and control parameters such as laser power, repetitive firing rates, and each treatment’s depth. This allows for accurate targeted delivery to provide optimum results with minimal downtime compared to other non-fractional lasers.
Hydrafacial is a non-invasive procedure that combines water, light energy, and an enzyme to treat most skin conditions in one treatment. You can experience brighter, hydrated skin without the downtime of surgery or injections. Hydrafacial combats acne by dissolving dead skin cells that block pores which lead to blemishes and blackheads, while also cleansing the pore to remove bacteria at the same time. It is an excellent alternative for those not comfortable with other treatments because there is no pain, downtime, or recovery.
Hyaluronic Acid Skin Booster
The most common fillers in skincare are hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body, which gives it the ability to retain moisture and fight wrinkles by increasing collagen production. It also stimulates the production of new cells to replace old ones that die or weaken with age. Hyaluronic acid is a popular choice among leading dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and plastic surgery clinics. It has been around for many years in various capacities, but it’s not until recently that they improved the formula to get better results with minor discomfort during treatment.
No one wants to think about wrinkles or acne, but the reality is that both are inevitable. And when they do start to show up on our skin (especially if you’re in your late 20s), it can be frustrating and embarrassing. Luckily, there are treatments for each of these problems available today. Have any of these treatments worked for you in the past? Let us know how it went, if so, and what was your favorite!
