Facial Skin Care Q & A



Why is skin care so important?

The skin is the largest organ of our body. Taking excellent care of our skin is essential to our overall health and wellness. Our skin helps protect us from germs, environmental hazards, and the sun’s harmful rays. 

When cared for well and from an early age, our skin helps to keep us looking young and fresh - preserving skin elasticity, thickening the skin, and avoiding wrinkles will help maintain a youthful appearance and delay a need for more advanced rejuvenating interventions. 

What can laser treatments offer for facial skin care?

Dr. Friedman’s team can treat cosmetic defects in your skin and give your face an overall rejuvenated appearance with laser skin resurfacing. The procedure involves using bursts of laser light energy to vaporize the damaged layers of skin on your face.

The laser emits light energy with such precision and speed that it minimizes tissue damage outside of the targeted area. 

Laser skin resurfacing is effective in treating:

  • Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Birthmarks
  • Tattoos 
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars

With laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Friedman’s team can give your facial skin a more even, clear, and youthful appearance.

What is a chemical peel?

With a chemical peel, Dr. Friedman’s team applies a chemical solution to your face that causes targeted layers of skin to eventually peel off (exfoliation), revealing new skin from underneath that’s fresher, smoother, and less wrinkled. 

Chemical peels are effective in: 

  • Improving your skin’s clarity, tone, and texture
  • Softening fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizing or removing hyperpigmentation, freckles, and age spots
  • Clearing up acne and acne scars

Chemical peels also stimulate collagen production, which makes your skin more firm and youthful. Dr. Friedman offers a few different types of chemical peels to address different facial and neck and body skin problems such as discolorations, rough scaling skin and thin skin. 

The procedure is typically painless, requires little to no preparation, and entails virtually no downtime. Care with sun exposure following chemical peels is essential as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after your chemical peel.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure that Dr. Friedman’s team performs to regenerate new skin by stimulating collagen production in your skin. He uses a tool called a derma roller that makes a series of tiny needle punctures across the surface of your skin.

The pricks are a “controlled injury” that triggers your body to produce more collagen in the affected areas, which rejuvenates your skin. Microneedling can improve:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Scars from acne or other causes
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores

It’s a minimally invasive procedure that requires no downtime and will only leave you with minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure. 

What is IPL treatment?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive way to refresh and rejuvenate the skin, achieving a variety of cosmetic outcomes. Unlike lasers that emit one single type of light, IPL emits multiple wavelengths of light that work to reduce unwanted marks on the skin of the face, hands, and body.

This treatment targets redness, fine lines and wrinkles, vascular lesions, broken capillaries, and dark spots associated with sun damage and the aging process. The result is smoother, more evenly toned skin achieved with a few sessions of minimally invasive, painless, interventions.

What is fat injection?

Fat is a natural “stem cell” that works incredibly well to rejuvenate our face and bodies. Fat taken from one part of your body and injected into another part of your body are an excellent way to give you a more youthful appearance by:

  • Increasing facial volume
  • Diminishing wrinkles
  • Reducing scarring
  • Plumping your lips
  • Building up shallow contours
  • Enhancing the fullness of your face

In the procedure, Dr. Friedman harvests fat from an area of your body (usually your hips, thighs, or abdomen), naturally purifies it, then injects it into targeted areas of your face. 

What is a liquid facelift?

With a liquid facelift, Dr. Friedman uses dermal fillers to accomplish the same goals as a surgical facelift, namely adding volume to deficient areas of the face and tightening the skin to rejuvenate your appearance.

Liquid facelifts are less invasive than surgical facelifts and require much less downtime after your procedure. They are performed in minutes, during a routine office visit and with no advance preparation required, under local anesthesia or with no anesthesia.

What is laser hair removal?

If you have unwanted hair on your face or body, Dr. Friedman’s team can safely and effectively remove it with laser hair treatments.

With laser hair removal, a laser is used to send high-energy light waves to the melanin in your hair, which effectively thins or removes the hair entirely. You typically need between four to six treatments to remove all your unwanted hair.

What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is the implantation of organic pigments beneath your skin that makes your skin look permanently enhanced. Also known as micro-pigmentation, Dr. Friedman’s team can administer permanent makeup to: 

  • Make your eyebrows or eyelashes look fuller
  • Enhance your lip color
  • Reduce the appearance of scars

Permanent makeup is a popular procedure for both men and women, and can be helpful for a wide range of people, from those who are trying to cover up cosmetic concerns to others who don’t have time to apply makeup. It is often used as an aging remedy but may be used frequently to help hide surgical scars.

Permanent makeup includes nipple tattooing, eyebrow, and eyelash tattooing, lip liner, eyeliner, and other treatment areas. Dr. Friedman’s team of world expert permanent makeup artists love helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals in the most professional and artistic way possible.
