Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s my face reflecting after all?

Have you ever stopped to think that your face is a reflection of all it’s been exposed to over your life? Your beautiful smiles lead to multiple laugh lines. Furrowing your brows creates wrinkles along your forehead. Unprotected sun exposure causes brown spots and decreases the pace of natural exfoliation.

While you live a life full of expressions and daily exposure to harmful elements, find reassurance in knowing that we offer a full range of the latest clinical-grade skin care procedures that help protect you from future damage while correcting damage that has already been done.

Here’s a quick guide on a few of the most common and impactful procedures that we offer.

Dermaplaning exfoliates dead skin cells and temporarily removes fine hair. A popular and comfortable procedure, dermaplaning can be a stand-alone treatment or performed prior to chemical peels, microdermabrasion and facial mask treatments. This treatment is a great option used to create flawlessly smooth skin before makeup application for any special occasion.

Chemical Peels, a popular treatment for many women, can help smooth texture, refine pores, even out skin tone, reduce acne and improve skin’s overall appearance. There are many different types of chemical peels. The most popular peels we offer at UC Health Women’s Center include the use of lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids.

Dermal Fillers do exactly what they sound like—they “fill” the skin in areas that show lost tissue volume. They are made of natural ingredients, such as collagen, calcium and hyaluronic acid and last anywhere from six to 18 months. Fillers are most commonly used to smooth lines around your nose, mouth and under your eyes.

Wrinkle Correction Injections such as Botox and Dysport are also offered for correction of current lines and for the prevention of new ones. Facial wrinkles, formed from years of repeated expressions, are diminished with these injections and the results last for approximately four months before you find yourself needing another appointment.

Laser Rejuvenation treatments can even out skin tone that is mottled with brown spots and red vessels. They can also smooth out texture and improve laxity of the skin.

Before these services are performed, you will experience a thorough consultation where your specific needs and concerns are discussed in detail.
