Try Our Skin Rejuvenation in Cleveland Options

As one of the preeminent sources of cosmetic surgery in Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Matt Goldschmidt and The Cosmetic Surgery Center offers a full range of services for skin rejuvenation. Cleveland residents should know that three most common methods of resurfacing and rejuvenating the skin include dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser treatments.  The most current technology in laser treatments utilizes a fractioned laser.  The fractionated doses cause less tissue damage while still achieving amazing results!

In order to meet your goals for rejuvenating your face, laser skin resurfacing uses a precise method of exposing your skin to controlled bursts of radiation. These lasers slowly remove aging skin in order to expose the fresher, younger skin underneath.  The skin will also tighten up since the laser helps your body produce new collagen fibers to rejuvenate your appearance.

Dermabrasion in Cleveland, Ohio is a cosmetic surgery procedure that mechanically removes the outermost layer of skin.  Dermabrasion is performed by  Dr. Goldschmidt at The Cosmetic Surgery Center with the use of an instrument that has a fine sanding disk or wheel (also known as a frise). This procedure gives an improved and smoother appearance by removing the outer layers of the skin. This procedure is done under local anesthesia, IV sedation (twilight sleep), or general anesthesia. Dermabrasion is often used for treating scars that result from acne, trauma, and helps camouflage other skin irregularities or scars.

Dermabrasion may be done in a superficial or deep manner.   In superficial dermabrasion, portions of the epidermis (most outer layer of skin) are removed while in deep dermabrasion all of the epidermis and a portion of the dermis (inner layer of skin) are removed. For the treatment of scars, deep techniques are preferred as they are very effective. Deep techniques need a greater healing time and also carry a slightly higher risk of complications such as scarring.

Dermabrasion greatly improves the appearance of the skin and has excellent results in the treatment of acne or chicken pox scarring. After the procedure, the improvements continue for a longer period of time and take months as the collagen underneath the skin remodels. The treatments depend on the severity of scarring, but most patients just require a few treatments to obtain the optimal results. Patients with deep scarring such as “ice pick” scars require more treatments to get significant improvement. Other Cleveland skin rejuvenation therapies such as facial fillers or excision of the scars may be performed either at the same time or at another time to obtain the best results possible.
