Visiting an anti-aging center in the Lake Oswego area to recover youthful skin
The skin is the largest organ on the body, and is exposed to the elements. This is why the team of Thrive in the Lake Oswego area encourages patients to visit their anti-aging center to learn about the ways in which we can help patients recover their youthful skin while allowing it to look much more attractive. Resurfacing of the skin can be done in a number of ways, which may include:
Injectables are a common method for patients who are interested in achieving a more attractive look without having to undergo invasive procedures such as plastic surgery. Injectables may include dermal fillers and neuromodulators. Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid injections that add volume directly to where they are injected, while neuromodulators such as Botox® are injections that reduce muscle contractions, thus smoothing dynamic wrinkles on the skin.
Resurfacing of the skin can now be done with today’s technologies. Laser devices can be used to help stimulate skin cell turnover as well as collagen production to tighten and firm the skin while adding necessary volume for the appearance of more youthful skin. Laser skin resurfacing is also great to address pigmentation concerns and poorly textured skin with large pores.
By applying certain strengths of specific chemicals to the skin for just a few minutes, patients can stimulate the turnover of their skin cells. This is done by achieving the perfect balance and timing by an aesthetic medicine specialist such as Dr. Adam Maddox. The team of Thrive has used chemical peels for many years to assist patients in enhancing the overall texture and appearance of their skin.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that is commonly done in dermatology offices to assist in removing the upper layer of skin that often harbors dead skin cells and gives the skin the dull texture patients want to address. This treatment is done with a specialized device that uses small crystals to exfoliate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure can be done regularly, or alternated with any of the above treatments for optimum results.
