Types of Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing Treatments
Laser Skin Care Clinic offers a wide range of skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments, each of which helps address a specific set of skin problems. Here is a brief overview of those treatments and techniques.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing improves the appearance of the skin affected by sun damage, acne scars, injuries, chickenpox, and several other conditions. This procedure can also treat fine lines and wrinkles on your cheeks and around your eyes and mouth. Moreover, certain types of lasers can restore the lost skin tone and help improve the overall complexion.
A typical laser skin resurfacing procedure involves directing a laser beam to the treatment site. This laser beam performs skin exfoliation, allowing a fresh and rejuvenated skin layer to come on top. At the same time, the energy produced by the laser stimulates collagen production at the dermis, adding to the overall tautness of the skin.
It is worth mentioning that each type of cosmetic laser helps achieve a particular set of aesthetic goals.
Options for Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing at Laser Skin Care Clinic
At our clinic in Dubai, we use state-of-the-art laser technologies to rejuvenate your skin. Here is a quick rundown of those laser technologies:
- Q-Switched ND: YAG laser – ideal for treating skin pigmentation issues

- PICO Laser – helps with scars and pigmentation and improves skin elasticity

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense pulsed light, also famous by the name of PhotoFacial, rejuvenates your appearance by improving the texture and color of your skin. This treatment uses intense pulses of broad-spectrum light to treat more than one skin condition during a session.
At Laser Skin Care Clinic, we use IPL primarily to reduce the impact of sun damage, which is usually visible on the face, hands, chest, or shoulders. This skin rejuvenation treatment also addresses several other skin conditions, including stretch marks, birthmarks, acne, broken blood vessels, age spots, discoloration, wrinkles, spider veins, and scars.
Chemical peeling is a skin resurfacing treatment that involves applying a chemical solution that induces skin exfoliation. As a result, a smoother and more rejuvenated skin surface comes on top. The chemical peels used for skin rejuvenation usually come with mild to moderate strength.
Chemical peeling is one of the most viable treatments for discoloration, scars, and wrinkles. You can also get this treatment to get rid of mild acne. In some cases, our dermatologists may combine chemical peels with other cosmetic procedures to achieve specific aesthetic goals.
Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin with the help of a handheld device that sprays tiny crystals onto the skin surface. This minimally abrasive resurfacing procedure performs a sanding job, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This process also boosts collagen levels, adding much to your skin’s youthfulness.
Generally, microdermabrasion can help correct pigmentation problems, skin texture issues, blackheads, fine lines and wrinkles, and scarring.
Mesotherapy is a technique that uses fine needles to deliver skin rejuvenating medications to the skin’s middle layer (mesoderm). These injections usually achieve rejuvenation goals by treating underlying skin issues such as poor blood circulation and inflammation. Some injections may even help lose excess fat under the skin. The medications used in this treatment mainly include vitamins, enzymes, plant extracts, and hormones.
In general, mesotherapy restores overall appearance by:
- Improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing cellulite
- Improving body contours
- Making the skin firmer and elastic
- Lightening the pigmented spots
- Treating alopecia
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment option to reduce acne scars and stretch marks. It uses tiny needles that create small punctures in the skin to boost collagen production to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
This treatment is generally carried out with the help of a specialized device called Dermapen. It is a pen-shaped device equipped with a disposable tip containing 12 tiny needles. These needles penetrate the skin vertically to cause micro-injuries that boost collagen production. In the end, your skin becomes refreshed and rejuvenated.
Radiofrequency treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that heats your dermal layer to boost collagen production. As a result, your skin becomes taut with a reduced appearance of wrinkles.
Other rejuvenation benefits that come with radiofrequency treatment include:
- Reduced sun damage
- Face slimming
- Body contouring
- Face contouring
How to Take Care of the Skin after the Treatment?
You will get a complete set of aftercare instructions to follow after a skin rejuvenation treatment. Dermatologists generally advise staying away from excessive sun exposure for several months to avoid any pigmentation issue.
What to Expect after the Skin Rejuvenation Treatment – Recovery and Results

Skin rejuvenation treatments bring a remarkable improvement to your aesthetics. These treatments reverse the aging clock on your skin to help you regain a younger appearance.
Skin Rejuvenation FAQs
Can I combine different skin rejuvenation treatments?
In some cases, yes. For instance, combining IPL and RF has been proved to significantly improve wrinkling, pigmentation, vascular lesions, and laxity. Having that said, it is always recommended to speak to a qualified dermatologist before deciding to get a combination treatment.
How long does skin rejuvenation last?
The results of a skin rejuvenation treatment may last a few months to a few years, depending on the type of treatment you received. Generally, the results of laser procedures last longer. Moreover, staying on top of your skincare routine is a surefire way to maintain treatment results for a long time.
Is there downtime required with skin rejuvenation?
Yes, some skin rejuvenation treatments may lead to some downtime. These treatments fall into two categories: non-ablative and ablative. Non-ablative techniques do not generally need any downtime, while ablative treatments do. So, it is best to discuss the impact of your intended skin rejuvenating treatment with your dermatologist.
