What's the Best Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?

Combinations are the key to skin rejuvenation
The best results for skin rejuvenation are achieved when all causes of aging are addressed.
- You simply cannot talk about rejuvenation if you are tanning and smoking.
- Proper diet is essential.
- Sun damage must be corrected with topical retinoids and laser. I have found Pearl and Fraxel to be the best.
- Dynamic wrinkles should be addressed with Botox, and the sooner you start, the better. The benefits of Botox become cumulative and once the skin is too loose, Botox does not give as great of a result.
- I use a combination of fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane, Radiesse, and Sculptra to achieve natural fullness and more youthful contours. We lose volume in our face with age, so it must be restored. If you do a face lift without volume correction, you will just look tighter, not younger.
I suggest a physician board-certified in an aesthetic field like dermatology or plastic surgery to benefit from the extensive training these specialties must go through in order for you to get the best result. No one solution is right for everyone and all treatments should be individualized.
The best skin rejuvenation treatment....
The best treatment for skin rejuvenation varies depending upon an individual's skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure, and overall health. I am a major proponent of a healthy lifestyle: diet high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and fish, 8-10 hours of sleep, limiting alcohol intake other than the occasional glass of red wine, and regular excersize. Next step for all skin types is sun protection including daily sunscreen, sun hats and sunglasses....and avoiding sunburns!
Moving on to reversing signs of damage, I would recommend first and foremost using a daily topical vitamin A product such as tretinoin (by prescription) or retinol (over the counter). If these cannot be tolerated, then anti-oxidant topical creams such as vitamin C, E, co-enzyme Q, coffeeberry, or green tree extracts can be used. Regular exfoliation with topical AHA/BHAproducts (glycolic acids, fruit acids, salicylic acids) either as leave on products or peels are extremely helpful to use at least 1-2 times weekly. Maintaining skin hydration using topical moisturizing creams is also beneficial. Older, delicate and drier skin may require thicker moisturizers and younger, acne prone skin may require oil free moisturizers or serums.
It is never too late to start a skin care regimen. After years of neglect, it may be helpful to first undergo a series of medical grade peels, supplemented with photofacials as necessary.
Deep folds and dynamic wrinkles and fine wrinkles are best treated by combinations of fillers, botox and resurfacing laser procedures.
There is really no way to answer this question for everyone. A skin rejuvenation program should be designed for the individual patient with several considerations in mind:
- Degree of desired result
- Amount of accepted downtime
- Financial budget
In addition, there are really two phases of skin rejuvenation:
- The initial step (rejuvenation), where healthy skin is restored.
- A maintanence phase, where this healthy appearance is maintained.

I do not use either microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Plasma Skin Regeneration technology is infinitely more controllable, and can effect improvements in skin laxity, skin texture (including open pores), fine wrinkling, and skin pigmentation in a single treatment.
Improvement after a single treatment with the new Portrait device (already FDA approved in the US) can continue over the course of a full year.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
There is no single best skin rejuvenation treatment. The best thing to do is to schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon or medical aesthetician so they can individually examine your skin and recommend a customized plan. Some offices use the Visia Skin Analysis which can specifically determine the amount of pigmentation, broken capillaries, and wrinkles that a patient may have. At that point a customized treatment plan can be devised based on the patient’s results. Treatment options may include photo facials, fractionated lasers, non-ablative lasers, chemical peels, HydraFacialMd, and Rejuvapen.
Skin rejuvenation for mature skin
The answer is simple. As you age, there are multiple problems that result in facial aging.
As a result , you have to treat all the various problems to get the best results. In this industry 1+1+1=10. In other words , if you treat the colour , the lack of volume , the laxity, the dynamic wrinkles each with the most appropriate treatment for your skin you will have global rejuvenation.
Combination approach is the best- fillers for volume, IPL for colour,skin tightening technologies for laxity, fractional lasers for texture,PRP micro needling for surface, a decent skin care regime and a healthy lifestyle.
Treating mature skin is no different than taking care of the maturing body. It also requires a combination approach-diet , exercise , moderate sun and alcohol , no cigarettes, hormone replacement if indicated and sleep.
If you think your skin in the same way, you will better understand the different tools we have to help the different problems that arise when we mature!
The Best Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Every individual has different skin and different goals for how they want to look.Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from laser, light and other energy-based treatments to chemical peels and other non-ablative methods. The best way to transform dull skin is to undergo a fairly aggressive skin resurfacing procedure, such as a chemical peel. First Fraxel laser would help minimize fine lines and wrinkles as well as pore size. Chemical peels can smooth and tighten the skin, while dermal fillers can restore lost volume for deep lines and wrinkles.
