Advancing age, sun exposure, skin disorders, and even heredity can all
contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body.
These include textural changes like wrinkles and acne scars, pigmentatory
lesions like freckles, sunspots or visible blood vessels. In addition, skin may
lose tone, feel less firm and lose the healthy glow that is evident in younger
What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation includes various aesthetic treatments aimed to restore a
more youthful appearance. It can be achieved through either surgical and/or
non-surgical options. Skin rejuvenation treatments can be invasive or non-invasive.
Invasive procedures are surgical procedures and include a brow lift,
blepharoplasty, surgical facelift and neck lift. Non-invasive treatment modalities are chemical peels, muscle relaxant
injections, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, photo-rejuvenation, radiofrequency
What are the conditions that can be addressed during rejuvenation
The following are some of the conditions that different skin rejuvenation
approaches can address:
Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are present at rest and do not change
with facial movements
Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that appear as folds with
facial movements or expressions
Pigmentation: It results mainly due to chronic sun exposure and
includes freckles, sun spots, or other darkened patches of skin
Scars: Scars can appear due to acne or any skin injury. They can be
of various types - superficial rolling scars, deep box or pitted scars.
They can be dark coloured or light coloured.
Vascular conditions: Tiny blood vessels may become visible on the skin
with advancing age
Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structures (collagen
and elastin fibres) that result in a loss of skin firmness and sagging
Dull skin: Skin that has lost the radiant glow because of deposition of
dead skin cells and clogged pores
What are different treatment modalities available to treat the
different aspects of skin damage?
Various treatment options available for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing
Chemical peels - these are chemicals containing active ingredients that
cause controlled changes in the skin by exfoliation, stimulating collagen
and elastin remodelling, reducing the activity of pigment cells, and
neutralising the oxidative damage to the cells. All these effects result in
improvement in texture of the skin, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Non-Ablative Treatments (Microdermabrasion, Micro-needling) –
minimally invasive exfoliating methods to treat mild scars, open pores,
fine lines and wrinkles and skin discolouration.
Laser And Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments – used to improve
discolouration and/or tighten sagging skin.
Ablative Laser Treatments (Fractional CO2 Lasers) – remove outer layers
of skin to smooth lines, wrinkles and scars.
Dermal Fillers – hyaluronic acid containing injectable compounds to
improve skin contouring and volume loss.
Muscle Relaxant Treatments – blocks nerve contraction to relax
muscles thus improving the active wrinkles.
The specific type of treatment that will best address your concerns are
determined after a consultation with your dermatologist. Most skin conditions
require a series of treatments and a multi-modality approach to achieve best
