cosmetic dermatologist skin rejuvenationAnyone who is considering skin rejuvenation wants to know the best and most effective method possible. But the reality is there are many variables to consider, including skin type, the type of treatments needed, your age, health and much more. On the other hand, there is an effective type of skin rejuvenation process available for everyone.

Before you spend a lot of time on your own research, consider visiting a cosmetic dermatologist for recommendations. They will guide you on the right path and explain these procedures more in-depth.


Microneedling is designed to help improve acne scars, fine lines and improve skin’s appearance overall. The procedure involves a cosmetic dermatologist using a device with tiny needles to slightly puncture the skin in order to produce and promote collagen growth. Microneedling is a fairly painless process and most patients will slowly recognize results in several weeks following the procedure.

Chemical Peels

If you need skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, chest, and hands, a chemical peel may be a great option for you. It works by applying a chemical solution to the affected areas on the skin, which will eventually peel off in a couple days. The process removes damaged skin and allows new skin to grow in its place. This new skin will look and feel younger, have a smoother texture and will have more of a glow overall.


Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation method that’s similar to rubbing sandpaper over the skin to smooth it out. However, there is also a slight suction to remove the dead skin cells immediately. It is best used on people with rough or sun-damaged skin, acne issues or uneven skin tones. Since no chemicals are used, people can return to their regular activities immediately following a microdermabrasion procedure.

Acne Treatments

Acne can be treated in various ways. The most popular treatment methods include topical creams and lasers or pneumatic energy. While there isn’t a guaranteed method for everyone, depending on the severity of the acne, utilizing pneumatic energy in combination with broadband light is one of the safest and most effective acne treatment methods.
