If you ask someone what they think of when they hear “Plastic Surgery,” what do they say? Most of the time I hear “boob job” or “tummy tuck.” Well what if I told you it’s much more than that? Here at DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery we strive to allow you to be your best self, and with that comes skin care! With summertime in full swing and the sun blazing, are you taking the correct precautions for your skin?
I think it’s safe to say that everyone thinks to put on sunscreen when they go out in the Atlanta sun, but did you know there are multiple other minimally and non-invasive options available to help prevent skin damage and anti-aging?
One of the most popular anti-aging skin care procedures DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery offers is Micro-needling. This is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for skin rejuvenation. Micro-needling involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury. As each fine needle punctures the skin, the controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. Growth factors can be delivered deep in the skin through the channels to effect fibroblasts – the cells that create collagen. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This Neovascularization and Neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, cellulite or stretch marks.
In addition to micro-needling, DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery offers topical products that can be used to successfully target and repair damage to DNA in skin cells. Neova DNA Total Repair products reduce the visible signs of aging, most often from sun exposure and the assaults of environmental stresses. By using this cutting-edge formula twice daily, you can drastically reduce these signs in a way no other serum can.
