The holidays, and a new year, are coming up, and you want to explore ways in which you can put your best face forward this year (and next). You’re in luck as we have more tools than ever at our disposal that work quickly and effectively at revitalizing, refreshing, and renewing your skin.
At Z-Roc Dermatology, Drs. Khongruk Wongkittiroch and Matthew Zarraga, along with our experienced team of skin care experts, pride ourselves on offering cosmetic dermatology services that follow the science when it comes to anti-aging. From advanced laser technologies to tried-and-true chemical peels, here’s how we can help you hit the reset button on your skin.
1. The power of light
We live in the Sunshine State, which means residents of Florida are more prone to skin damage — year round. If you’ve developed sun damage in your skin in the form of age spots, facial veins, and other blemishes, our intense-pulsed light (IPL) laser technologies can clear the surface, quickly and easily.
With IPL, we can deliver a photofacial that uses bursts of light to break apart surface concerns on your skin, leaving a smooth, blemish-free surface behind.
If your skin has both surface concerns and it’s losing elasticity and tone, microneedling is a great solution. With microneedling, we create tiny microchannels in your skin that break apart blemishes in the outer layers of your dermis at the same time as it creates a collagen response in the deeper layers.
Your skin registers the tiny microchannels as injuries and it responds with collagen, which fills in the tiny channels, lifting the entire surface of your skin.
3. Chemical peels
Another great way to breathe new life into aging skin is to peel back the layers to allow healthier skin cells to come in. With a chemical peel, we apply a solution to your face that can strip away the outer layers — from a light peel that only addresses damaged surface skin cells, to medium peels that go deeper into the middle layer of your dermis.
4. Laser resurfacing
If you want to address surface concerns, as well as deeper lines and sagging skin, laser skin resurfacing may be just the ticket. Using a fractionated ablative technology, we deliver CO2 laser energy into your skin, one layer at a time, to destroy damaged skin.
At the same time as this laser energy destroys old skin cells to encourage cellular turnover, it also travels deep into your tissue where it elicits a collagen response that will tighten your skin.
We’re excited to offer several different alternatives for resurfacing your skin, including the CoolPeel technology. This system delivers strong bursts of CO2 energy into your skin in extremely short pulses, which reduces the risk of heating surrounding skin.
As a result, your downtime after a CoolPeel treatment is greatly reduced and your results are still impressive as surface concerns fade away and your skin regains elasticity and tone.
