For skin resurfacing, textural concerns, and pigmentation issues, microneedling and chemical peels have the best results.
Microneedling is a non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure where small, fine needles puncture the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. Collagen production is increased, creating fresh, new tissue. Also known as percutaneous collagen induction skin therapy, microneedling causes controlled injuries to the target area that are easy for the body to heal, allowing your skin to reap the benefits of the healing process. Only a portion of the dermis is affected, minimizing the risk of pigmentation. Microneedling is effective in smoothing wrinkles, correcting sun damage, reducing the appearance of scarring and stretch marks, pore reduction, and treating pigment disorders such as melasma and post-inflammatory pigmentation. The depth of the needles can be adjusted depending on the treatment area and the level of correction. This treatment is quick and generally well tolerated with the help of a topical anesthetic applied 45 minutes prior to your session. Microneedling exponentially increases the skin’s penetration and absorption of products immediately after treatment, with hyaluronic acid or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) showing the best results in Virginia Beach.
Medical grade chemical peels can help reverse sun damage and other surface skin imperfections. Chemical peels, also known as chemical exfoliation, effectively remove dead and damaged skin cells and are highly popular for those in Virginia Beach seeking to revitalize their skin. Commonly treated areas include the face, neck, chest and back. At Fountain of You MD, we offer several different strengths of medical grade chemical peels; with varying intensities, downtimes and outcomes: very superficial, superficial, medium, and deep. Regardless of the peel you choose, the procedure is not quite painless, with patients reporting a little tingling, tightness, and/or heat sensation in the treated area. Our medical grade chemical peels have varying recovery times, most require no downtime with patients returning to normal daily activity the same day. Deeper peels require longer recovery time. Natural peeling of the skin generally lasts approximately three to seven days. During the healing process, it is important to not pick or peel off the dead skin. A broad-spectrum sunscreen, which protects from UVA and UVB rays, should be applied daily.
