What is the Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?

Skin rejuvenation refers to all procedures and practices that improve the overall quality of the skin. At birth, the skin is at its best shape. However, as one ages, the tissue begins to get damaged and even loosens. These changes in the quality of the skin are considered to be one of the signs of aging. While rejuvenation of the skin is not always a treatment that people seek from doctors, there are specific medical procedures that help in rectifying the damage to the skin.

There are several types of skin rejuvenation, based on the technique used during the procedure. The first is known as thermal rejuvenation. This uses heat to repair any damage to the skin. Such a procedure is generally performed at salons and is an inexpensive form of rectifying skin.

Chemical rejuvenation is another form of the treatment. In this, specific chemical compounds are used to clear out the external damaged layer of the skin. The layer underneath is undamaged. However, such a chemical procedure is safer when performed by a trained medical professional.

The last form of skin rejuvenation treatment is called photo rejuvenation. As the name suggests, this form of treatment makes use of light to repair the skin cells. More specifically specialized lasers are used to rectify the skin.

How is the Skin Rejuvenation Treatment done?

Rejuvenation is divided into three parts, namely thermal, chemical and photo. While all of these are beneficial for the skin, a combination of the three garners the best effect. However, it is also important to understand that too many skin treatments at once may make the problems worse and not better.

Laser skin rejuvenation is the most effect form of the treatment and is performed by a qualified dermatologist. During this form of the treatment a precision laser is used to remove the skin cells that have been damaged. It is a delicate procedure that removes skin layer by layer, till the undamaged layer is reached.

The procedure does not require patients to remain at the hospital overnight and usually takes around an hour or two to be completed, depending on how much of the face requires the treatment.

The next form of treatment known as skin tightening is very popular, since it can be performed at a salon and is cheap. It is a form of thermal rejuvenation and heat is used to treat loose skin. After the treatment, the skin will become taut.

Thread vein removal is another specialized form of laser therapy that is used to hide the tiny blood vessels under the skin, which become apparent with age.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

People with noticeable signs of aging or skin damage can try seeking the skin rejuvenation treatments. However, there are very minor side effects from these treatments and almost anyone can seek such treatment, if he or she desires. It is better not to undergo too many treatments in a short span of time, as this may cause damage to the skin.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

Some medications and skin conditions may impact the results from such treatment. For instance, people on certain acne medications may undergo severe scarring and pain when it comes to laser resurfacing procedures. So, it is better to be upfront about medications and medical history with the dermatologist before seeking certain treatments.

Are there any side effects?

While thermal form of the treatment does not have any major side effects, people undergoing chemical and laser treatments are likely to suffer from some skin conditions. For laser surfacing, the skin may become red and swollen. It may also lead to acne and further damage of the skin. In some cases, infection from bacteria may also be caused at the site of the treatment.

Scarring is another common side effect for such a treatment. However, one rare and severe side effect of the laser therapy is that it can sometime cause the internal part of the eyelid to become exposed. This condition can only be treated through a surgery.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

In case of thermal form of treatment, patients do not need to follow any post care guidelines. However, in case of laser therapy, the doctor will apply bandages on the face. Patients will have to keep the area of the treatment clean after 24 hours of the procedure. Lotions or petroleum jelly will have to be applied on the region. Medication for selling may also be prescribed by doctors.

How long does it take to recover?

Depending on the form of treatment, recovery rate may vary. For thermal rejuvenation, people will not have to set aside any time for recovery. However, in case of laser treatment, patients may experience a bit of scarring and scabbing. Swelling of the face is also not uncommon. In such a case, a week or two may be needed for the recovery from the treatment.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The cost of treatment depends on the kind of treatment sought. For instance, for thermal rejuvenation, the cost may be limited to Rs. 500. However, in case of laser resurfacing treatment, the cost may be anywhere between Rs. 5,000 and Rs. 30,000.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Results of the treatment are not permanent, as future skin rejuvenation treatments may be needed for repairing of the skin cells.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Home remedies are the best alternative form of treatment when it comes to skin rejuvenation. People looking to repair damages to the skin can follow regular exfoliation, moisturizing, using sunscreen and a proper diet can be useful as well.
