Dermal Fillers are used to minimize wrinkles around the face. The most common area that these fillers are used for are the smile lines around the nose which are known as the nasolabial folds. The fillers can also be used to minimize wrinkles around the mouth, the corners of the mouth and wrinkles or scars in the cheeks.
Over time, lifestyle factors can cause facial wrinkling. Due to aging, sun exposure and acne, brown spots and blotches can occur, which causes your skin’s surface to become uneven. To remedy these problems, many people undergo Skin Rejuvenation. It’s important to know that skin resurfacing is a controlled injury. As the skin heals itself, the end goal is to make sure the skin develops good scar tissue.
Age Spot Reduction
Age spots are light brown or dark brown areas on the face and body that develop over time from sun exposure. To minimize the occurrence of dark spots, sun avoidance is best, followed by hats and sun block. For existing areas, there are creams that can lighten these areas and for resistant spots, there are few lasers that can lighten the spots.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States and can be done for you by Dr. Lee at his Chicago practice. Laser Hair Removal uses a technique that beams concentrated light into the hair follicles. The light is then absorbed by the pigment in the follicles, which destroys the hair.
