New Skin Rejuvenating Treatments You Can Get From The Dermatologist

As you begin to age and your youthful twenties seem a thing of the distant past, you may be looking to rejuvenate and repair your skin. However, you may not know about the many different treatment options available to you at your dermatologist's office to achieve those goals. There are often new and innovative treatments that come available to help people look more youthful and radiant. Get to know a few of the newest options available to you so that you can give one or all of them a try in your pursuit of rejuvenated skin.


A new and interesting dermatological treatment for making your skin look rejuvenated and more youthful is known as microneedling. This treatment is performed by a dermatologist and involves a device that holds between around a dozen or more tiny needles.

When you go in for microneedling, you will consult with the dermatologist first to determine the current health of your skin and the areas to target. These areas are the ones with scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and marks from previous bouts of acne.

Then, your dermatologist will rub a numbing cream into your skin followed by a serum of growth factor and hyaluronic acid to better stimulate the skin to generate collagen after the treatment. The microneedling then begins as the needling device pulsates the needles just under the surface of the skin.

Immediately after microneedling, your skin may look slightly inflamed and pinkish in color. This is your skin's natural reaction to the needles and indicates that your skin is beginning the healing process. Within a few days, your skin will have produced excess collagen to help repair the microneedling injection sites. Collagen also plumps the skin helping to make it more youthful and getting rid of lines, wrinkles and minimizing scars.

Absorbable Threads

Another one of the newest treatment innovations to rejuvenate your skin and make you look younger and more vibrant is a form of sutures or threads below the surface of the skin. These sutures are completely absorbable so that they do not need to be removed but will also not cause any damage to your health.

The sutures are placed under the surface of the skin using a tiny needle incision. Absorbable cones hold the suture in place and the skin is tightened and essentially pulled taut. This helps to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and the sagging skin that goes along with the aging process.

Absorbable thread and cone treatments have only recently been approved for cosmetic dermatology use in the United States. As such, you can get in on one of the newest and most innovative trends in skin rejuvenation early and wow your friends and family with the results.

Now that you know more about a few of the newest innovations in skin rejuvenation, you can be sure to give them a try and get the best results possible from your next trip to the dermatologist. Find more treatments by contacting your dermatologist's office and scheduling a consultation.
