You can attain beautiful, healthy-looking skin at any age. At ShineMD Medspa & Liposuction Center in Houston, TX our experts use advanced aesthetic technologies to provide you with effective skin rejuvenating treatments. These include Photofacials and Sciton Joule Laser which does BBL to minimize the signs of damage and aging. With the right skincare treatment, you can always maintain a confident, youthful appearance that makes you feel great.
What Is Skin Rejuvenation?
The first signs of sun damage and physical aging show in our skin. Has your skin started to look thinner, loose, or less vibrant? Pigmented spots or dark spots are likely to develop in sun-exposed areas. As we age, our bodies experience a change in the connective tissues that promote skin strength and elasticity. The lack of collagen leads to the development of wrinkles, spots, loose skin, and uneven skin tone.
To combat the unwanted signs of aging, skin rejuvenation treatments work to make the skin firmer, tighter, more supple, and smoother. Many advanced technologies are now available to make this happen. These treatments allow you to promote cellular repair and skin resurfacing, so that better-looking, healthier skin can grow.
Erasing the Effects of Sun Damage and Signs of Aging
Sun damage causes the appearance of dry, flaky, and slightly more wrinkled skin compared to other parts of your body. You can usually observe this unwanted appearance on your face, neck, hands, or arms. Other signs such as dark spots, uneven complexion, brown patches of skin, freckles, and wrinkles are also caused by sun damage.
Not all of us can avoid the development and progression of these flaws. Our body is supposed to produce antioxidants and proteins that work to promote better skin health, but as we age and become exposed to stress, we lose this regenerative capacity. Would you like to restore your healthy, youthful skin? Skin rejuvenation treatments can help you accomplish this goal.
Repairing and Resurfacing the Skin
Rejuvenating the skin can be made possible through the use of skincare products, treatments, or surgical procedures. Some treatments also double as resurfacing treatments. The surface layer (with the most damaged skin cells) of the skin is “peeled away” so that better skin can grow.
We offer Photofacial treatments, chemical peels, laser treatments, microneedling, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies as some of the most effective skin rejuvenating treatments. By using advanced technology and devices such as Sciton Joule Laser which does BBL, we use these treatments to repair damages and unwanted changes caused by sun exposure and aging.
Stimulating Natural Healing Processes
The principal benefit of our skin rejuvenating treatments is the stimulation of collagen growth and the promotion of the skin’s natural ability to heal. Collagen is an essential protein that’s responsible for maintaining the structure of the skin. What happens if you don’t have enough collagen? You’ll be more likely to suffer from skin laxity issues and develop fine lines sooner.
Refreshing the Mind and Body
Furthermore, skin rejuvenation is not just about maintaining a more aesthetic physical appearance. As a center for wellness, we believe that these treatments should also help you feel relaxed, more confident, and satisfied. Skin rejuvenation is all about feeling beautiful and good about yourself from inside and out.
How Do Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Work?
By choosing the right treatment option, you can achieve brighter, more beautiful skin. Each one has unique benefits, solutions, and uses advanced technology. Do keep in mind your goals for the treatment and the main issues and concerns you would like to address.
All of our services help improve the appearance of your skin and make you feel beautiful and youthful. You can rest assured that whichever one you choose will make a positive difference.
BBL stands for Broadband Light. BBL™ Photofacial is a type of light therapy that works to correct your skin by minimizing the signs of aging, sun exposure, and other skin conditions. By availing of this treatment, you can restore the natural beauty of your skin, making it smoother, firmer, and more vibrant. Are you ready to have a more youthful, glowing complexion? A Photofacial can give you promising results.
This treatment is best for the improvement of specific conditions such as:
- Age spots and sunspots
- Skin redness and rosacea
- Large pore size
- Uneven skin tone
The Technology and Process Behind a BBL™ Photofacial
A Photofacial uses precisely-targeted laser energy, which penetrates the topmost layer of your skin. Depending on your skin type and condition, we can adjust the levels of intensity of the light used. The heat coming from the laser helps stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin in the skin. It also causes skin cells to tighten. You can reduce the appearance of loose and wrinkled skin on areas such as the neck, face, jowls, stomach, and thighs.
This treatment is completely safe and convenient. The laser energy from the Sciton Joule Laser which does BBL doesn’t affect other areas of your body, except for the underlying layers of the skin, where the signs of aging and sun damage develop.
Halo™ Fractionated Resurfacing
A non-invasive, award-winning laser treatment for skin rejuvenation is Halo™ Fractionated Resurfacing. Would you like to renew your skin and see a wide range of improvements? This resurfacing treatment is best for those who are looking to promote skin healing and rejuvenation.
The skin advantages you can enjoy from this resurfacing treatment include:
- Brighter, smoother skin
- Reversal of the effects of sun damage
- Diminished acne scarring
- Improved complexion irregularities
- Softened fine lines and wrinkles
How Halo™ Fractionated Resurfacing Treatments Rejuvenate the Skin
We use Sciton Joule Laser which does BBL to deliver a laser beam, which is fractionated into thousands of small treatment zones. The laser energy works to remove tiny columns of skin tissue, without affecting the surrounding areas. We target one fraction of your skin at a time to kickstart the natural healing process and skin regeneration.
This treatment is made as comfortable as possible with the application of a numbing gel. Our trained specialists precisely target areas for treatment, which often include the face, chest, or neck. Within the first few weeks, you can enjoy the growth of newer, healthier, collagen-rich skin.
Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift®
Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® are a type of PRP treatment. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This 100% natural treatment triggers collagen production by combining plasma and platelets from your blood with other skin rejuvenation methods. Would you like to regenerate your skin tissues, speed up the repair process, and get smoother tighter skin? A Vampire Facial® will help you enjoy less scarring together with an improved skin tone.
The best advantages of a Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® are:
- Improved skin complexion
- Minimized appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Diminished acne scarring and melasma
- Improved volume
What Can You Expect from a Vampire Facial®?
This natural facial treatment harnesses the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a concentrated portion of your blood. To start, we draw your blood and place it in a centrifuge, which extracts the PRP. It’s as simple as having your blood drawn at a doctor’s appointment. We gently inject the PRP into your skin to enhance volume and stimulate revitalization.
We combine other treatments to your PRP injection to achieve superior results. During your Vampire Facial® treatment, we will also perform microneedling, together with topical PRP application. The combination of these two treatments results in better absorption and maximized benefits. Your skin will be stimulated to produce double doses of collagen, so you can expect a tighter and smoother appearance.
What Makes a Vampire Facelift® Different?
A Vampire Facelift® uses the same concept as a Vampire Facial®. The main difference between the two is that a Vampire Facelift® treatment involves the use of dermal fillers. The added benefit is an increased facial volume in areas that have started to look “hollow”. We use dermal fillers in the Juvéderm® family, which have active ingredients that hydrate the skin while enhancing elasticity and volume.
The result of a Vampire Facelift® is a more radiant, youthful appearance, with a minimized appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Within a few weeks, you will notice the visible results of your treatment and enjoy glowing, plump skin, with a more even tone.
Microneedling treatments work to stimulate better collagen production. With the use of very small needles, we quickly and carefully prick the surface of your skin. Microneedling is a type of skin resurfacing and rejuvenating treatment that improves skin problems such as scarring, wrinkles and fine lines, and the appearance of large pores.
Our trained specialists skillfully perform this treatment so you can enjoy tighter, smoother, and healthier skin. The advantages you can enjoy from microneedling include:
- More even, brighter skin tone
- The appearance of smaller pores
- Smoother, firmer skin
- Decreased appearance of wrinkles
Is Microneedling Safe?
Your comfort and safety is our top priority. We use topical numbing creams at every start of the treatment, and sessions are relatively short. No need to worry about downtime or intolerable pain. Within six months, you’ll see a gradual improvement from microneedling and enjoy the final benefits not long after.
Are you looking for a quick, effective skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment? We offer MicroLaserPeel® for those who would like to improve their skin texture, remove damaged skin cells, and achieve a more youthful appearance. This gentle, laser-assisted peeling treatment provides all-around skin rejuvenation. It can also eliminate and diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and sun damage.
The following skin problems are best solved through a MicroLaserPeel® treatment:
- Mild to deep wrinkles
- Precancerous lesions
- Skin pigmentation issues
- Acne and scarring
- Dull skin tone
Our specialists carefully calibrate the MicroLaserPeel® device to treat only the exact depth of skin needed. The uppermost layer of your skin is exfoliated to stimulate the growth of more youthful, collagen-rich skin. After a few sessions, the best results will appear in only a matter of weeks.
