Loose skin and wrinkles coupled with acne scars make you look unattractive. Not only does it mar your beauty, this condition would even have an effect on your self-confidence. Assessing the skin type and finding the right treatment suitable for you requires a methodical planning by a specialist. Our skin care includes specialized treatments that are carefully designed to suit you.

Loose skin and wrinkles can be improved with a peel and a laser treatment, as each work differently on unique skin conditions. For the above problems, you would need a medium depth peel. The Blue Peel® is preferred for such treatments. Dr. Obagi invented the Blue Peel® over 12 years ago. The Blue Peel® was developed to make peels more scientific and to allow the physician to control the peel depth, making peels safer for patients. Blue Peels® can be done on all skin types and produce consistent results.

The Blue Peel® is done to tighten lax skin, smooth wrinkles and most scars, treat pigmentation problems, and correct sun damage. It is the best procedure to tighten skin without surgery and if repeated every three to four years, the peel can prevent the need for surgery as you age.

Acne scars respond to treatment with The Fraxel® laser. The laser delivers heat to the tissue and creates microscopic holes in the skin, removing old damaged skin and replacing it with new healthy skin. The depth of the treatment of the holes depend on which Fraxel® is used and the energy level used during the treatment. The density of the laser determines how close the holes are to one another and the number of holes per square inch.

The Erbium Fraxel® creates superficial holes, while the Co2 Fraxel® creates deeper holes and can provide some degree of tightening as well. The Co2 laser is excellent in correcting deep wrinkles and scars. Of course there is a downtime with each laser use and varies with each treatment.

Some tips to maintain a Glowing Face besides the treatments:

  • Eat a balanced diet

  • Incorporate vegetables, fruits, grains and protein to your diet

  • Vitamin C helps to keep skin glowing; eat citrus fruits

  • Vitamin E and B compounds aid in providing nutrition to skin

  • Restrain from foods and drinks high in sugar and caffeine

  • Avoid too much salt and sugar in a day; more salt gives a bloated appearance to your face

  • Drink plenty of water

  • Avoid burgers, fries and other fatty and oily foods

  • Exercise regularly to get that healthy glow

  • Bring down the stress levels to a minimum
