The flat brown and black spots that occur on areas exposed to the sun are called age spots, sun spots, or even liver spots, though they have nothing to do with the liver. They are in no way related to the function of the liver, or the liver itself. Sun Damage may also present in the way of increased visible vascularity in the skin including general redness or visible small vessels. If you are concerned about wrinkles, brown spots, and leathery skin, follow some simple guidelines from The Skin Cancer Foundation that can help you repair and possibly even reverse these signs of skin aging, up to 90 percent of which are caused by the sun.
Treatments offered at Rajeunir Medical Spa:
Rejuvenate Your Skin with Rajeunir’s IPL Chemical Peel
The Rajeunir Medical Spa peel is light IPL chemical peel that revitalizes photo-damaged and sensitive skin, helps improve problematic skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. These peels are appropriate for multiple applications and as a companion treatment for IPL™ Photo Facials and Microdermabrasion. By combining scientifically proven ingredients at the highest acid concentrations and the lowest pH allowable, the Rajeunir Medical Spa IPL chemical peel accelerates the cell renewal process, stimulates collagen synthesis, and gives you overall skin rejuvenation.
Rejuvenate and Revitalize with IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive, comfortable technique that revitalizes your skin using a broad spectrum of light called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). This patented, FDA-approved, non-laser treatment provides dramatic results for an array of skin conditions anywhere on the body. Skin tone is enhanced, small defects are eliminated and pores become smaller. The end result of IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatments is smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin. These medical grade treatments will reveal a naturally younger appearance with a clearer, more even complexion without facial alterations. For optimal results, a series of treatments will increase cell regeneration that stimulates new collagen and elastin to diminish fine lines.
IPL™ Skin Rejuvenation and Photo Facials treat the following conditions:
Uneven skin tone
Facial redness and Rosacea
Photo Facial treatments may also be used in conjunction with chemical peels and microdermabrasion to enhance the results of these procedures.
Advanced light systems have been used safely on millions of patients of all ages worldwide. IPL™ treats only targeted areas, leaving the surrounding skin untouched.
What areas can be treated?
IPL™ Skin Rejuvenation treatments are effective for improving the signs of aging and appearance of skin anywhere on the body—face, neck, hands, décolleté (chest), shoulders, arms and legs.
Is IPL™ painful?
Our IPL™ system is a comfortable, non-ablative, noninvasive treatment. Unlike laser treatments it does not wound the skin. Typically, patients describe the treatment as a gentle warming of the skin’s surface.
What advantages do IPL™ skin rejuvenation treatments have over other treatments?
Laser resurfacing and deep chemical peels often send patients into hiding as they wait for redness and swelling to subside. Recovery for these procedures can be days and sometimes weeks. Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive for younger patients and those who simply want to revitalize their appearance without recovery downtime.
Before Treatment and Post 5 Treatments
Discontinue sun tanning and the use of tanning beds and self-tanning creams 4 weeks before and throughout the treatment course. This will reduce the chance of skin color changes, and development of new lesions.
Always use an SPF 30 or greater sunscreen on all exposed treatment areas and re-apply every 2 hours throughout the day. Wear protective hats and clothing.
Discontinue use of exfoliating creams such as Retin-A and other skin exfoliating products 2 weeks prior to and during the entire treatment course.
Discontinue use of Oral Isotretinoin/Accutane for 6 months prior to and during treatment. Accutane changes the underlying structure of the skin which may cause an increase skin sensitivity to light.
If you have a history of Herpes outbreaks in the area of treatment you should consult your Primary Care Provider for medical evaluation and possible antiviral therapy prior to treatment.
An accurate diagnosis, by a Physician, of abnormal lesions or brown spots prior to treatment is necessary before treatment of lesions. Failure to do so, may delay proper treatment.
A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually last 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, which usually resolves in 2-3 days. In some cases, prolonged redness or blistering may occur.
Apply cool/ice compresses and/or 1% Hydrocortisone cream to treatment areas for 10-15 minutes every hour for the next 4 hours, as needed, to reduce discomfort or swelling.
The treated area can be gently cleansed and polysporin can be applied if needed.
Pigmented lesions may initially look raised and/or darkened with a reddened perimeter. The lesion is usually healed in 7-21 days, but may take 4 weeks to completely fade.
Direct sun exposure to the treatment area is prohibited from whatever source (natural sun, tanning beds, self-tanning creams) and the use of SPF 30 or greater is mandatory.
Be aware of the likelihood of coincidental hair removal in the treatment area.
Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs. This will help decrease the chance of infection and scarring.
Until redness has completely resolved avoid swimming, hot tubs/Jacuzzis and activities that cause excessive perspiration.
Reveal More Supple and Vibrant Skin with Microdermabrasion
Whether you have a problem area or just want a quick pick-me-up, brighter, smoother skin is waiting for you in just a few treatments. Rajeunir Medical Spa offers Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion — one of the most frequently sought after non-surgical, non-invasive skin care treatments available.
Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion is safe, quick, convenient and proveneffective for all skin colors and types. It has been performed successfully for years in Europe and is now one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in this country for:
Improving fine lines and overall complexion
Cleaning enlarged and clogged pores, blackheads and whiteheads
Restoring a healthy, smooth feel to skin
Helping fight signs of aging.
This age-defying process can give a brighter, smoother appearance to any skin area in need of exfoliation such as face, neck, hands and chest. Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion removes the outer layer of dead skin leaving a smoother texture and promoting cell renewal. Unlike other microdermabrasions, our system uses no loose crystals nor other abrasives to contaminate you or the environment. Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion is similar to particle dermabrasion in its results, but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. By gently abrading the skin with a wand enhanced with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner, Rajeunir Microderm Facials reveal a brighter side of you!
Even at its highest setting, Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion treatments are painless yet highly effective. Because exfoliation occurs only as the wand is drawn across the skin, and there are no crystals being blasted against your delicate tissue, treatments are more gentle than other systems.
How will I look after the treatment?
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10-30 minutes. Your skin will look and feel smoother and more youthful even after the first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments.
Are there side effects to microdermabrasion?
Your skin may appear light pink for a short time after the treatment. Moisturizers and makeup may be immediately applied. We do recommend sunscreen use on the treatment area, as it may be more sensitive to the sun. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
Treatment series vary from 4 to 12 sessions depending on the condition and the type of skin. Your Rajeunir Medical Spa consultant will be able to determine the number of treatments necessary during your free consultation.
What can microdermabrasion treat?
Microdermabrasion is effective in improving skin tone and smoothing the skin’s surface. Clients with uneven pigmentation, scarring and fine lines achieve noticeable results. Greater results will be experienced when microdermabrasion is combined with IPL™ PhotoFacials.
Who is a candidate for microdermabrasion?
Clients sensitive to chemicals involved in other treatments are good candidates. The treatment is not lengthy and the recovery period is short. It is an excellent choice for all skin types.
How much will it cost?
Treatments range in price. Your Rajeunir Medical Spa consultant will assist in selecting the best package for you during your free consultation.
Can I have microdermabrasion along with a Photo Facial?
Yes. Microdermabrasion is a gentle, yet effective treatment. It is most effective when used in conjunction with IPL™ PhotoFacials, and complements Rajeunir Medical Spa’s rejuvenating skin care regime.
