Treat yourself to a youthful glow

Are you stressed about your skin? Feeling stress can actually have negative effects on your skin. You can find peace knowing that skin rejuvenation is achievable with non-invasive, cosmetic dermatology treatments here in El Paso. Some of these procedures include sublative and laser treatments. At Dermatology & Aesthetic Center of El Paso, Dr. Karen and Dr. Peter Herman have some tips that will get you that healthy youthful glow you are looking for.

Laser treatments are probably the fastest procedure with the least amount of discomfort and recovery time for skin resurfacing and other issues. Lasers remove unwanted hair, smooth and tighten skin, improve texture and pigmentation problems. These sources address medical issues like acne, rosacea, wrinkles, scars, and vascular irregularities. The lasers that Dr. Karen and Dr. Herman utilize have specialized ELOS technology, a dermatological system based on the combination of three different types of energy in three separate modalities: laser and radiofrequency (RF), light (infrared or intense pulsed light, IPL) plus RF, or RF alone. These technologies provide superior solutions for skin tightening, texture toning, body contouring, and cellulite reduction for all over body skin rejuvenation.

Sublative treatment is intended for acne scarring, wrinkle reduction, and use in dermatological procedures requiring ablation and resurfacing. It is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin in a fractional manner. Sublative works by targeting the formation of new collagen beneath the top layer of skin, in the dermis. This is a resurfacing and remodeling procedure from the inside out. This means that the results will continue to improve as time passes. A lack of collagen is what causes problems like wrinkles, fine lines, laxity, and sagging in the first place. You will experience toning and tightening that includes the area under the eye and around the mouth, that can be extra sensitive.

Microneedling is a new and revolutionary cosmetic dermatology procedure. It is minimally invasive and offers amazing results for patients with acne scars or those looking for youthful, smooth skin. A device containing very fine needles is rolled across the skin to form tiny perforations. The controlled micro-injuries stimulate new collagen and elastin during the healing process. Our physicians take this procedure a step further with Platelet Rich Plasma, known as PRP.

The physician will draw your blood in the office, it will be spun in a centrifuge so that the PRP separates and is removed. Your blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and other elements that are great for regrowth and tissue regeneration in wounds. It has proven successful in the past for other medical procedures, such as orthopedic injuries, hair restoration and genito-urinary disorders.

Chemical peels are a great way to treat acne, rosacea, irregular pigmentation, sun damaged, and mature skin. We know that aging, the environment, and adverse health issues can all affect the skin. Depending on what you need, a specific chemical solution will be applied onto your skin that causes exfoliation of dead skin cells. The first thing your dermatologist will do is evaluate your skin. There are different levels of chemical peels that all produce excellent skin resurfacing results. Chemical peels are ideal for the hands, face, or neck areas.

Superficial Peel: A chemical solution, like glycolic acid, salicylic acid or lactic acid, will be used to treat the outer layer of skin. The rough texture and fine wrinkles will be diminished. You will see mild skin discoloration improve as well.

Medium Peel: This peel will penetrate the outer and middle layer of skin. A medium peel will remove dead skin and improve age spots, wrinkles, freckles, and discoloration. This type of treatment depth is also good for anyone suffering from actinic keratosis.

Deep Peel: A deep peel will also penetrate to the middle layers, but uses stronger solutions. A deep peel will improve age spots, moderate lines, and even shallow scars. This particular peel will produce a dramatic difference and noticeable improvement, however requires longer healing time.

All chemical peels require at-home care to ensure a full and proper recovery. Our doctors recommend a customized and comprehensive skincare protocol for your needs. Even if you don’t have an adverse skin condition, you could benefit from the skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing effects of a chemical peel.

Microdermabrasion is a mild alternative to chemical peels and laser treatments. The results are not as dramatic, but skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing are still obvious outcomes. At Dermatology & Aesthetic Center of El Paso, a diamond-tip wand is rolled over the surface of the face and neck. This machine removes the outermost layer of the skin and leaves a smooth appearance and a healthy glow. Multiple treatment sessions are beneficial as well. Anyone can benefit from microdermabrasions, and it will aid the penetration of your medicines and skincare.
