Skin Rejuvenation Q & A
What is skin rejuvenation?

Your practitioner at the Inglewood Laser and Aesthetics Plus can determine which specific treatment can best address your concerns.
What are some of the conditions that can be treated with skin rejuvenation?

- Wrinkles and blemishes
- Freckles and sunspots
- Acne scars
- Sagging skin
- Dull skin
The experienced team at Inglewood Laser and Aesthetics Plus can combine these custom modalities to restore your youthful and glowing skin.
Am I the right candidate for skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is equally desired by older men and women and young adults. It is a good option for you if you are physically healthy, do not smoke or consume alcohol, and are ready to protect your skin from further sun damage or treat unsightly acne scars and pigmentation. After the skin rejuvenation procedure, your practitioner will advise about daily skin care regimen to protect the skin and prevent further damage.
What are the common skin rejuvenation procedures?
There are an array of skin care procedures to make your skin younger and healthier. They can be used alone or in combination to obtain the best results.
A chemical peel is a solution that is applied to the skin to remove the surface layers. The type of chemical and the depth of application varies with patients and condition treated. It helps improve the quality of skin and is best for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and acne.
Very fine needles are used to create holes or puncture in the skin. These micro-injuries release growth factors to stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, resulting in plumper, smoother, and healthier skin. Microneedling can be used alone or in tandem with other skin care products to increase the penetration of these products in the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is also known as laser vaporization and lasabrasion, or laser peel. With extreme precision and controlled hand movements, your practitioner directs the beam of light or laser on the targeted area to remove damaged skin one layer at a time.
The beam also heats the underlying skin layer to stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. As you heal, the collagen results in new smoother, firmer skin.
