If your skin is looking dull or tired, or perhaps you’re even noticing things like fine lines and wrinkles, you may be interested in a skin renewal treatment. A variety of techniques can be used to help your skin look brighter and more balanced, enhancing your natural beauty to give you a radiant glow. Across our Fredericksburg, VA, Greenville, SC, and Glen Allen, VA, offices, Renew Health & Wellness is proud to offer numerous non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments that will leave you looking youthful, healthy, and gorgeous.
What Are Some of the Best Options for Skin Rejuvenation?
The first step of your cosmetic journey will be to come to your nearest clinic for a consultation with a member of our team. This will be your chance to talk us through your aesthetic goals. We will look at your medical history, including any skin conditions you may have had. Once we have all the details, we can help you decide which skin resurfacing treatment will work best for you. Each treatment offers a slightly different approach and, as such, different benefits.
A chemical peel uses strong chemicals to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. It can be used to treat a variety of different skin conditions, including age spots, sun damage, acne scars, or uneven skin tone. It can also help clear up blemishes and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Different peels contain different chemicals, so we’ll help you choose the one that’s right for your skin. Our Richmond branch offers VI Peel while our Greenville location offers SkinMedica.
A peel works similarly to a facial. During your session, the chemical solution is brushed onto the skin (or sometimes applied with a cotton pad). The chemical solution then causes damage to the top layers of skin, which triggers the growth of new, healthy skin cells underneath. Depending on which type of chemical peel you choose and how deep it goes into your skin, the results of your treatment can last anywhere from several days to several years.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin tightening and rejuvenating treatment in which tiny needles are used to create controlled wounds on the surface of the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural wound healing process and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, as well as other important skin-rejuvenating substances such as glycosaminoglycans. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns and is especially effective for reducing the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
There is a range of exciting, effective treatments available for interested parties. We offer Morpheus 8 and Exceed at our Richmond location and the Skinpen at our Greenville and Fredericksberg locations. The Morpheus 8 is the latest innovation in dermal remodeling technology. It uses thin microneedles made from titanium to penetrate deep into the skin’s surface. The SkinPen, meanwhile, is a pen-shaped device that has been praised for its results, offering 94% of patients noticeable results.
You may have heard of microneedling with PRP. PRP is a concentration of platelets in your blood that are responsible for healing. To make the product, a small sample of your blood is taken and is spun to separate the plasma. When injected into the skin, or rubbed into the skin after microneedling, this substance can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. It can also be used to treat acne scars and other types of scarring.
Dermaplaning is a type of cosmetic treatment that involves using a special tool to gently scrape the surface of the skin. This removes any dead skin cells or hair on the face and leaves behind smoother, healthier-looking skin. It can be particularly useful for people with very sensitive skin or those who regularly use anti-aging or acne-fighting products, as it can help to remove any buildup on the skin’s surface and prevent irritation. It can also help makeup go on more evenly and give the face a more polished appearance.
Viora is a non-invasive device used to help people with skin conditions, such as acne, cellulite, and scars. It works by applying radiofrequency energy to the affected areas to heat the skin, which can reduce inflammation and stimulate new collagen growth. This helps even out skin tone and improves the appearance of damaged tissue. New collagen can also lift the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and giving patients a more plump, voluminous look. We offer this treatment at our Greenville, SC, location.
If you’re interested in hair removal as a part of your skin renewal treatment, Motus AY is one of the most effective solutions available. This hair-removal device uses an FDA-approved laser technology called Moveo Technology for faster, virtually painless treatments. The treatment is delivered through a sapphire contact cooling tip with very short pulse durations (2ms), making it perfect for treating more challenging fine and fair hair. The technology even uses a protection mode to help minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission during treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Will the Results of These Treatments Last?
The results of these treatments can last for several months, depending on the individual. Some people may need to have more than one treatment session to achieve their desired results. The results of any skin rejuvenation treatment are not likely to be permanent, but excitingly, treatments can be performed again and again. That means when you’re ready for another one, simply book it in and come back for another rejuvenation session! We can give you the same thing as last time, or update your treatment to address new concerns.
Why Does My Skin Look Dull and Tired?
If you’ve noticed that your skin is looking more tired as you get older, that’s perfectly common. As we age, our skin naturally changes and starts to look duller and more tired. This can be caused by a number of factors, including decreased production of collagen and elastin in the skin, reduced blood flow to the skin, loss of moisture in the skin, increased exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants, or simply due to a reduction in overall cellular health as we get older.
There are several lifestyle changes that we can make to help protect our skin from these effects and maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin into old age. Some simple steps include using sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage, maintaining a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant content, getting enough sleep every night, avoiding stress as much as possible, and staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Importantly, always follow an effective skincare regime.
Why Is a Good Skincare Regime So Important?
The skin acts as a barrier to protect us from the environment, which means over time it wears down and becomes damaged. That’s why it is important to take care of our skin by cleansing it, protecting it from the sun, and moisturizing it. Here at Renew Health & Wellness, we offer the suite of Skin Print products. This deeply effective range of serums, cleansers, and moisturizers work in tandem with the treatments we offer to ensure you enjoy gorgeous, lasting results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for These Types of Treatments?
Generally speaking, the best candidates for these types of treatments tend to be those who have mild to moderate signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. We don’t usually prescribe a particular age, as long as you’re over 21; those who are younger may not yet see the effects of aging but may have scarred or blemished skin that they want to treat. While some specific treatments are more tailored to some skin tones than others, we have enough treatments available so there’s something for everyone.
