Wrinkles, brown spots, sun damage, and other aesthetic issues can sometimes be effectively rejuvenated without the need for invasive surgery. With the many advances in cosmetic enhancement and skin renewal treatments over the years, there are now procedures that can significantly restore the appearance of your skin by eliminating outer layers of damaged skin cells to reveal the healthier skin cells underneath. With procedures such as microdermabrasion, Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing, and chemical peels, Dr. John L. LeRoy can help you renew your skin with beautiful results.
Microdermabrasion is a facial rejuvenation treatment to help reduce the prominence of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars while treating oily skin and clogged pores. Using abrasive “micro” crystals, this treatment lifts dead skin cells with mechanized exfoliation and focused suction. After the 20 to 40 minute full facial treatment is complete, a new layer of skin will be visible. This treatment can be performed as needed or in a regular series, but the skin must be given time to replenish itself between each appointment. The number of treatments you receive will depend on the severity of your skin damage. To find out how many microdermabrasion treatments you may need, contact Dr. John LeRoy for an initial consultation.
A popular facial rejuvenation treatment, the chemical peel removes the top layers of the skin to reduce the presence of sun damage and uneven pigmentation and reveal healthier skin beneath. A topically applied chemical solution penetrates the surface of the skin for a specified length of time before being neutralized and rinsed away. Actual skin peeling will appear within a few days following treatment. Depending on the extent of the skin’s damage, Dr. John LeRoy will perform a light, medium, or deep chemical peel. Patients with severe sun damage or deep wrinkles usually opt for deeper, stronger peels or laser skin resurfacing treatment.
Having beautiful eyes isn’t just about their color – strong, bold eyelashes are also a large contributing factor to enhancing the overall look of your eyes and face. Latisse® helps you build stronger, thicker, and fuller eyelashes. Latisse® is the first product of its kind to receive FDA approval for lash enhancement.
Latisse® works by increasing the length of your existing lashes and extending the growth phase of your hair cycle to increase the overall number of eyelashes. Latisse® involves a daily topical application for 16 weeks and after that, you can continue to apply it every 2-3 days until you feel your lashes have arrived at the place you want them to be. Results can vary, but users of Latisse® have experienced longer, darker, and fuller lashes in as little as 8 weeks!
Latisse® is also a popular complementary treatment after blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to draw attention to newly rejuvenated eyes.
