DermaRich is a combination procedure that allows us to address a variety of blemishes with mechanical exfoliation, lasers, and collagen stimulation therapy. During two separate appointments, we will carry out four non-invasive treatments to tighten your skin and minimize the appearance of age-related imperfections. Here is a closer look at a few of the benefits of DermaRich and what you can expect following each of your appointments. Contact us today to book an appointment!
Understanding Stubborn Imperfections
Many people feel as if their age-related blemishes make them look years older than they really are, and that can impact one’s confidence and self-image. Maintaining healthy lifestyle habits will delay some of the most common age-related imperfections, but you won’t be able to avoid them forever. There will come a point when your body can no longer produce enough protein to keep your skin firm and toned. Discoloration is another problem that many adults struggle with, and attempting to minimize the appearance of those blemishes will be nearly impossible without a comprehensive treatment plan.
IPLs and Laser Resurfacing
Before starting the DermaRich treatment system, you must schedule an initial consultation with one of our team members so that we can go over all of your cosmetic goals. Once we have determined that you are a good candidate, we can carry out the first set of procedures the very same day. This session will include IPL therapy and laser resurfacing with an Aerolase machine. Also referred to as photorejuvenation, IPL therapy uses intense pulses of light to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. The Aerolase machine can then be used to lift dead cells and improve the overall texture of your skin.
These two treatments only take about an hour to complete, and you will most likely notice the results within a day or two. They are going to minimize the appearance of many different surface blemishes including discoloration, smaller veins, fine lines, and acne scars. Depending on how your skin reacts to those treatments, we might carry out the next two procedures on the same day or schedule them a few weeks later.
PRP Therapy and Dermaplaning
PRP therapy is an injectable treatment that can take years off your appearance after a single appointment. Platelet-rich plasma is created from your own blood, and that means we will need to take a small sample at the start of the appointment. The platelets are separated from the rest of the molecules in your blood using a machine known as a centrifuge. With your concentrated dose of platelet-rich plasma, we are going to carry out a series of injections throughout your face with a very fine needle.
Dermaplaning is the final step in this process, and it is typically carried out 10 days after your first set of procedures. During this appointment, we use a specialty scalpel to lift the last of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. The blade is also going to remove any lingering “peach fuzz” that the other treatments weren’t able to reach. Following your dermaplaning appointment, you will step out of our office looking and feeling years younger.
Don’t wait any longer to take the first step toward healthier and younger-looking skin. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Steven Dayan at our office, conveniently located in Chicago, IL.
