When visible blood vessels, age spots, redness, rosacea, acne scars, or a change in your skin’s texture affect your appearance, it’s time to consult Dr. Pamela J. Stuart for complete skin rejuvenation. At Physician’s Skin Solutions in Morgan Hill, San Jose, and Gilroy, California, you can receive an individualized skin profile and customized treatment designed to restore a more youthful appearance using an IPL Photofacial, a chemical peel, or microdermabrasion.
A variety of non-surgical options are available to rejuvenate your skin. These procedures restore skin to a healthy, more youthful state by improving problems caused by aging and long-term sun exposure, such as broken capillaries, discolored spots, and changes in skin texture.
After you schedule a consultation, Dr. Stuart thoroughly evaluates your skin, identifying challenges and creating a skin profile that can be used to develop a treatment plan. After you discuss the kind of results you want to achieve, the doctor will recommend the methods best suited for reaching your appearance goals.
Dr. Stuart offers comprehensive skin care and aesthetic services, so you can receive treatment for all skin-related concerns, but the following treatments are used when overall skin rejuvenation is the goal:
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacial: IPL is a non-invasive treatment that uses pulses of light to eliminate visible blood vessels and discolored areas of skin on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. A photofacial treats broken capillaries, age spots, sun-induced freckles, and mottled skin. IPL can also be used to diminish large pores and rosacea.
Chemical peels: As you age, the skin’s natural process of shedding dead skin cells slows down, creating a dull look. Aging and sun exposure also produce fine wrinkles, coarse texture, and blotchy spots. If you’ve had acne, you may have some scars. All of these skin concerns can be improved using a chemical peel. Chemical peels can be customized to remove only the top layer of skin or to go deeper to eliminate more skin.
Microdermabrasion: This procedure treats the same aging and sun-related problems as a chemical peel. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the top layer of skin, but since it only affects the upper layer, you may need a series of treatments to reach your desired results.
Recovery time differs according to the type of treatment and the depth of skin affected. A photofacial usually doesn’t require any down time, while microdermabrasion may cause minimal swelling that takes a few days to heal. You’ll have a longer recovery time for medium or deep chemical peels, especially a deep peel, which may take 14-21 days to heal.
Dr. Stuart will give you skin care instructions for the time period right after the procedure and for the long run. Ongoing care of your skin and consistent use of sun protection are important for maintaining the results and keeping a youthful appearance.
