As we age, our skin changes. It’s inevitable. Harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun damage our skin and environmental factors and facial expressions lead to fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet. Unfortunately, this damage occurs at a time when our skin is slower to replenish itself, as the rate of healthy young cells slows down when we age. This results in skin looking dull and dry. To top it off, collagen, the structural protein in connective tissue that provides our skin with a plump healthy appearance, diminishes as we age.
What can you do about aging? There are several treatments that True Med Spa in Downtown Scottsdale provides. If you’re looking for improved skin tone and elasticity, read on on learn more about the anti-aging facial treatments available to you.
Anti-Aging Facials in Downtown Scottsdale
With our True Anti-Aging Facial, the skin is hydrated, promoting clear and younger looking skin. This facial includes antioxidants such as Vitamin C and/or hyaluronic acid that nourishes the skin to promote clear and well-hydrated skin. The process for a True Anti-Aging Facial is broken down in to several steps.
First, a medical aesthetician will perform a Visia Skin Analysis to thoroughly evaluate your skin conditions, such as dry skin, broken capillaries, age spots, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. The skin is cleansed and analyzed with a magnifying glass. The skin is exfoliated, which removes the top layer of your skin, consisting primarily of dead skin cells. After exfoliation, the medical aesthetician will perform necessary extractions to physical unclog any clogged pores. The last step in the True Anti-Aging Facial is a facial massage with classic strokes such as effleurage, to both relax you and stimulate your skin and facial muscles.
For the best results, we also recommend our Laser 360 Rejuvenation, True Photofacial, True iPixel Laser, Anti-Aging Hydrafacial, and MD treatments to effectively minimize fine lines and treat wrinkles. Our full line of medical grade Anti-Aging Facial products are available as your take-home regimen.
Facial Rejuvenation with Micro-Needling
To rejuvenate facial skin, True Med Spa relies on an aesthetic treatment with Plasma Rich in Growth Factors PRGF®. This technology is one of the latest advances in skin care treatments. It is a new technique that allows the practitioner to isolate and use the growth factors (bio-stimulating substances) from a patient’s own plasma in order to stimulate and accelerate tissue regeneration.
A therapy called micro-needling is used to precisely apply this plasma to the skin. Using the most advanced technology, the medical aesthetician applies thousands of invisible and virtually painless perforations to the skin. The “channels” created by micro-needling allow the skin to absorb PRGF®.
With this therapy, we see excellent production of the patient’s own collagen. This generates a greater consistency, firmness and reduced sagging, and also hydrates skin. Wrinkle reduction is significant, facial expression lines lose their depth, and lustre and luminosity is restored to skin, leaving you with a wonderfully youthful glow.**
Chemical Peels as Anti-Aging Facials
If you have acne and acne scars, enlarged pores, age or liver spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, dull/dry skin and signs of aging, True Chemical Peels can help. These chemical peels are radically different from those used by most aestheticians and remarkably effective. These non-invasive True Chemical Peels are a painless and quick way to rejuvenate the skin.
True Chemical Peels work with the patient’s isolated plasma (specifically, the Epidermal Growth Factor), which is applied to the face, neck and neckline skin in order to stimulate tissue regeneration, producing an increase in the skin’s thickness, smoothness and luminosity along with mitigating the effects of the aging process. Areas of sun-damaged, precancerous keratoses or scaling patches may improve after chemical peeling. Following treatment, new lesions or patches are less likely to appear.
