Get Your Glow Back with These Top 5 Treatments

If you live in the great state of Texas, you are no stranger to dry, cracked skin due to the extreme heat of summer and the bitter chill of winter. Perhaps you’ve done everything you can think of to protect your skin from the harsh elements: you wear sun protection, you moisturize, and you drink enough water, but you’re still noticing that your skin has lost its youthful glow.

In Austin, TX, Malena Amato MD FACS Eyelid & Facial Plastic Surgery Associates offers several excellent non-invasive, non-surgical procedures are available to help revitalize your skin and help achieve that healthy, radiant glow during any season.

TCA Peel

Chemical peels are becoming increasingly popular to help reverse sun damage and potentially eliminate precancerous spots! Board-certified surgeon Dr. Malena Amato uses the TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel to exfoliate and revitalize the skin. Chemical peels work by penetrating layer after layer of skin to boost cell regeneration and restore a healthy, youthful glow.

There are two types of peel concentrations Dr. Amato can use: a mild peel or a moderate peel. A mild peel uses a weaker TCA solution and doesn’t remove as much of the outer skin. A moderate TCA peel uses a stronger concentration of the solution to provide a deeper exfoliation. The type of solution used will be determined by both you and Dr. Amato during your consultation.

Laser Facial Resurfacing

Laser facial resurfacing can help treat a myriad of skin issues, including wrinkles, loose skin, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and even skin lesions, making it useful for adults of all ages. It works by using a specialized medical laser to gently exfoliate the skin. During your treatment, a laser light will penetrate the skin’s surface and break down aged and discolored skin cells. The body will then begin to replace these cells and encourage collagen production for smoother, brighter-looking skin.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are great for temporarily restoring lost facial volume, enhancing facial features, filling in deep creases or scars, and stimulating collagen production within the skin to help rejuvenate the skin’s surface. Austin plastic surgeon Dr. Malena Amato uses dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane®, which contain a viscous gel made from hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the human body and can hold and retain moisture to help strengthen, plump and moisturize the skin.

Liquid Facelift

The liquid facelift combines multiple injectable treatments like Botox®, dermal fillers, brow lift, kybella, facial fat transfer, and laser skin resurfacing into a single process for total facial rejuvenation. This procedure requires minimal downtime, lifts facial features, smooths wrinkles, and restores lost volume. The specific treatments included in your liquid facelift will be based on your personal needs and desired results.

New Skin Care Routine

Dr. Amato is a firm believer that proper protection and maintenance of your skin are essential for keeping your skin healthy and glowing. That’s why she selected a skin care line of products that includes anti-oxidants, retinol, and age-combating acids to help reduce fine lines, pigmentation, and sun damage while also restoring your skin’s natural glow. With your skin care consultation, she can help compose a skin care routine that fits your needs, and that will help achieve the results you’re seeking.
