Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments to Help You Look as Young as You Feel

Love Your ReflectionWe all want to make improvements to our bodies so we can reflect on the outside how we feel on the inside. Loving yourself and loving your body can make a huge difference in your overall self-esteem and self-image. This is why we diet and exercise, so we can look our best in order to feel our best. But, sometimes when we look in the mirror, we don’t like what we see. There are some of the physical features we cannot change with a regular diet and exercise regimen, such as age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. The bad news is that these issues do not just disappear overnight and are not reduced dramatically with the use of heavy facial creams and ointments. The good news is that there are many non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can help you look as young as you feel.

Chemical Peels

Patients seeking to reduce fine lines under and around the eyes, wrinkles caused by aging, and sun damage can benefit from a chemical peel. Chemical peels effectively reduce the signs of aging on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs. This procedure involves applying a combination of glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid to treat the problem areas, depending on the patient’s goals and Dr. Messa’s recommendations.

Patients undergoing a chemical peel can expect minimal to moderate burning sensation and mild redness to the treated area. Over the next three to five days, a crust of skin will form. Within a week’s time, the skin will peel away to reveal fresher, younger-looking skin with a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines, age spots, sun spots, liver spots, and acne scarring.


Another option to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin is microdermabrasion. This procedure utilizes a fine mist of crystals and a suction device to remove the dead outer layer of the skin and reveal newer, softer skin with a smooth and even complexion. Microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, sun damaged, acne scarring, clogged pores, and superficial pigmentation. This quick in-office procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete, is virtually pain-free, and requires little to no downtime.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is another non-surgical option to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and mild acne scarring. This procedure uses lasers that emit a powerful beam of light that burns a superficial layer of skin. As a result, your skin heals to reveal tighter skin with a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
