Anti-Aging & Facial Treatments Q & A

What are the effects of photoaging?

It may be hard to believe, but as much as 90% of the early signs of aging you see on the most sun-exposed areas of your skin are caused by ultraviolet light. Premature skin aging can cause a variety of common flaws, including:

  • Fine lines around your eyes and mouth
  • Pigmented spots, including age spots
  • Noticeable loss of skin tone
  • Leathery, saggy skin texture
  • Thinning lips that appear taut and pale

While the effects of photoaging are most visible on your face, they may also appear on your neck, hands, arms, legs, shoulders, and other parts of your body that are often exposed to sunlight.

What are the benefits of skin exfoliation?

Skin exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells to diminish skin flaws and reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. The team at Victoria Biondi, MD offers two of the most innovative and effective methods to achieve the best possible results:

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning uses a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape away the top layer of dull, dead skin cells to uncover a glowing complexion. Because it removes facial hair as well (that natural peach fuzz along the sides of your face), the treatment leaves the surface of your skin extra-smooth.  

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion uses a slender handheld device to gently sand away the thicker, irregular outer layer of your skin. This popular clinical treatment both exfoliates your skin and stimulates collagen growth for a smoother, younger-looking complexion.

How can a chemical peel help?

A chemical peel is a noninvasive clinical skin treatment that involves the application of a chemical solution to help gently peel away the top layer of your skin, thereby reducing the appearance of uneven tone and texture, age spots, wrinkles, and other common skin flaws.

Depending on your cosmetic goals, a chemical peel may be applied to your entire face or just to specific problem areas. Its depth of action depends on a variety of factors, including its ingredients, how it’s applied, and how long it remains on your skin.  

What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

Although laser skin resurfacing can’t necessarily get rid of loose or saggy skin, it can correct or substantially improve a variety of common skin conditions. Dr. Biondi and her team are proud to offer the most advanced laser technology available today.

PicoSure® laser resurfacing

This nonablative laser technology by CynoSure® is highly effective at reducing the appearance of age spots and wrinkles caused by a lifetime of sun exposure. PicoSure works by stimulating your body’s own collagen and elastin production to naturally heal and improve the appearance of your skin.

Icon™ laser resurfacing

The Icon Aesthetic System by CynoSure is an advanced and versatile laser technology that can safely and effectively revitalize skin, diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks, and help reverse the effects of sun damage.

Only with Icon can you get the ThreeForMe™ Laser Treatment, the only proven way to address wrinkles, sun damage, and facial veins at the same time.
