Aging, acne, sun damage, and other factors can cause your skin to become rough and dull. At North Florida Aesthetics, we are proud to offer skin resurfacing treatments to remove the outer layers of dead skin cells and restore a youthful, radiant complexion.
Treatments of different intensities can be done depending on the condition of your skin and the issues you wish to treat.
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe way to make your skin softer and smoother. A surgical blade is gently scraped over the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and fine vellus hairs, or “peach fuzz.” Once your procedure is complete, your skin will be smoother and softer, and you may even find that it is easier to apply cosmetics. There is no downtime necessary, and the treatment can be repeated at intervals of only a few weeks if desired.
Microdermabrasion utilizes a diamond-encrusted wand and gentle suction to exfoliate the skin, making it look and feel smoother. It also allows products, such as serums and moisturizers, to penetrate more effectively. This procedure is also effective in addressing fine lines, sun damage, large pores, and other minor cosmetic issues. Microdermabrasion is quick, requires no downtime, and can be completed over your lunch break.
Venus Viva™ NanoFractional RF™ uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to resurface your skin. The device delivers the RF energy using fine microneedles that puncture the skin and create micro-channels in the skin. This process triggers the body’s healing response, causing the growth of new skin cells. The RF energy also causes a thermal reaction in the skin that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins are produced by the body and provide your skin with its strength and elasticity. There is no downtime needed, and you can return to your regular skincare routine in only 24 hours.
The Benefits of Resurfacing
The skin resurfacing treatments that we offer can be completed in 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the treatment. These minimally invasive procedures can give you a glowing, naturally youthful complexion without the risks involved with surgery and with little to no downtime. We typically recommend a series of sessions for optimal results, and we will develop a personalized treatment plan for you during your consultation.
