It is the time of year where people are in the mood for summer fun that is also safe for their skin. Even in the current COVID-19 pandemic that requires masks and social distancing, people are traveling to California to undergo Los Angeles facial rejuvenation treatments that rejuvenate the appearance of the skin and provide a more youthful look. In addition, they want to get outside and have some California fun at beaches and Hollywood landmarks. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular Los Angeles facial rejuvenation treatments that are making their mark in the summer of 2020.
Popular Los Angeles Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
- Microneedling – Even if patients already have their summer tan, microneedling is still a popular facial cosmetic procedure because it can be performed on skin with a tan as well as skin with its natural color and skin tone. Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses a device that has very fine, short needles that puncture the first layer of the skin. The puncturing of the skin is performed to trigger the natural healing response of the body which, in turn, generates collagen to give the skin a more youthful look as well as a smooth and firm appearance. Microneedling has additional facial rejuvenation benefits including a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, an improvement in the appearance of scars resulting from acne, an elimination of brown spots and an overall healthier skin tone and texture. In general, the final results are long lasting and are often considered to be permanent.
- Botox – Patients that want to turn back the clock on their appearance are not always willing to undergo an invasive surgical procedure such as a facelift. Instead, many of then turn to Botox injections to provide them temporary facial rejuvenation results. Botox is able to reduce the amount of fine lines and wrinkles on the face while also providing a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. There is little to no downtime involved with having Botox which is one of the reasons that it is such a popular procedure. Some of the areas where the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles are most improved include the forehead, the lines and creases that form on the outside of the eyes and the area between the brows. The results of Botox last 4-6 months and follow-up treatments will be needed to maintain the results.
- Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser – Patients that have skin that is dull in appearance often turn to Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser to address damaged and dull skin and also give a more glowing, youthful look to the skin. Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser improves the texture and tone of the skin by reducing or eliminating discolored areas and also reducing the size of the pores to restore a youthful glow to the skin. This cosmetic laser treatment send two wavelengths of laser energy so the top and bottom layers of the skin tissue on the face will be treated at the same time. The pigment that is in the damaged or dull skin is brought to the surface so it will begin to peel off of the patient during the first few days following the treatment. The peeling of the skin allows the tissues that are located below the surface of the skin to come to the surface as healthy, youthful skin that is free of any damage from the aging process or from too much exposure to the sun. Unlike microneedling, this treatment cannot be performed on skin that has an “active tan” so this might actually be a better option for some patients during the winter months. The final results can last for many years but they will be impacted by the changes made to the body by the aging process.
- Fillers – Patients that are interested in restoring lost volume in the face are ideal candidates for the facial rejuvenation treatment known as fillers. Fillers are injectables that are placed in the facial area to treat issues such as wrinkles and fine lines as well as provide a more contoured and plump look to the cheeks and lips. The overall results give a person a facial appearance that is free of a hollow or older look. A person that wants to have dermal fillers placed in the face should be aware of the fact that the results are not permanent. Depending on the type of filler used by the doctor, as well as the amount of filler placed in the face, the results can last anywhere from 6-18 months. A series of regular follow-up treatments will need to be performed to maintain the results.
