Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What can skin rejuvenation do for me?

Skin rejuvenation is an umbrella term for any of several techniques that you can use to get the healthy, vibrant skin you’ve always dreamed of. Whether you struggle with persistent acne, wrinkles, warts, or scars, skin rejuvenation techniques can help put these problems behind you.

Just a few of the most common rejuvenation methods include:

Laser skin rejuvenation

This technique is effective for many kinds of blemishes, including wrinkles and birthmarks. Using one of two small lasers, Dr. Gentile is able to vaporize the outermost layer of skin, leaving a new, healthy layer in its place. These lasers are safe, as Dr. Gentile will ensure the heat they produce only reaches the first layer of skin. This is usually followed by a light recovery of up to a week, in which you may need to bandage the affected area.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel involves using a chemical solution to remove the top layer of skin, leaving behind a younger and smoother looking surface. Most chemical peels are done on the face and can be used to fix wrinkles, scars, and skin discolorations.

Depending on your goals, chemical peels can range from light to deep penetration of the skin; light chemical peels are usually used for surface issues like acne and dry skin, while deeper peels can fix deep wrinkles and even precancerous growths.

Some of the peels performed at Gentile Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Laser Center are:

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) peels
  • Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) peels
  • Jessner’s peels
  • Trichloroacetic peels
  • PCA skin lightening peel
  • Pyruvic acid peel
  • Mandelic acid peel
  • myBody probiotic peels
  • SkinMedica Vitalize Peel

For more information on these peels and what the best option for you, come in for a consultation.

Prescription skin care

A daily skin care routine is the foundation for healthy, beautiful skin. But the non-prescription products you see on TV or at the pharmacy don’t usually measure up. The best way to find your ideal daily regimen is for Dr. Gentile to examine your skin and then work with you to create a plan suited to your needs and goals.

Prescription skin care medication that can be found at Gentile Plastic Surgery include:

  • MyBody
  • Skinceuticals
  • Neocutis
  • SkinMedica
  • Technika Select
