If you’re gifting yourself this holiday season, we have the perfect idea: How about treating yourself to award-winning laser skin rejuvenation treatments at your favorite medical spa (that’s us!)? Glowing skin is the ultimate self-care gift, wouldn’t you agree?
Here’s the scoop on five top glow-getting treatments at Hendrick Plastic Surgery & MedSpa. Your only problem will be picking just one!
If you’re looking for improvements to skin texture and tone…
We recommend laser skin resurfacing treatments, which literally remove damaged skin and stimulate its natural healing response. As your skin heals, it generates new collagen and elastin, revealing smother, brighter, younger-looking skin that glows. You can choose from:
- Halo®, the world’s first hybrid fractional laser treatment. Halo can be tailored in intensity and involves a few days to a week or so of skin renewal, depending on your treatment.
- ProFractional® is another fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment that can be tailored in intensity to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin.
- MicroLaserPeel® is not a fractionated laser, but instead removes the entire outermost surface layer of your skin to reveal smoother texture and more even tone.
MicroLaserPeel also varies in intensity, depending on your goals, and involve a few days to a week or so of downtime.
If you’re looking to correct dark spots, freckles, sunspots, redness, rosacea or small veins…
We recommend BBL® photofacial, the world’s most effective and powerful form of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. BBL photofacials stimulate your skin with intense pulses of light to remove dark spots and other complexion concerns without breaking your skin. This means there’s no downtime with photofacials, making them an easy treatment to fit into your busy holiday schedule. The other amazing reason we love BBL photofacials so much is because they also stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, helping to strengthen your skin from within with repeated treatments. We recommend scheduling a series of photofacials at first to achieve your desired complexion improvements and then maintaining your results with seasonal treatments, as needed.
If you’re darker skinned — or any skin tone — and desire brighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin…
We recommend chemical peels! Chemical peels have been around for a long time because they are proven skin treatments that provide dramatic complexion benefits with relative ease. Like lasers, chemical peels can also be tailored in intensity to meet your unique goals and downtime preferences. We typically recommend a series of lighter to moderate peels to achieve your goals rather than undergoing just one intense peel. This is because deeper peels come with more risk for side effects and are not as well tolerated as lighter peels. Plus, lighter peels can provide the same benefits with less downtime!
