It's frustrating when your skin doesn't look its best, but you'll be pleased to know that Dr. Marissa Santos offers a variety of skin care solutions to help with any concerns that you may have.
Dr. Santos offers a couple of great solutions for loose or sagging skin.
Microneedling with PRP therapy can stimulate your body to start making new collagen, which is the substance that gives your skin a firm appearance. Microneedling with PRP is great for filling in volume where you need it, whether it's stretch marks, acne scars, or facial wrinkles.
Another excellent option for skin tightening is the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) photorejuvenation treatment called a photofacial. During a photofacial, Dr. Santos uses a handheld device to send intense light pulses below your skin's surface. This stimulates your collagen and blood vessels, causing them to constrict. This, in turn, reduces facial redness and reduces or eliminates facial lines.
Depending on your concerns and needs, Dr. Santos will recommend a treatment that works for your skin tightening needs.
Yes, there are several possible treatments for hyperpigmentation. Although some patients do get minimal results with skin creams or lotions, Dr. Santos usually recommends a far more effective option for hyperpigmentation like melasma: microneedling. The tiny needles in the micropen can break up hyperpigmentation, and your body will then make fresh new skin cells to take its place.
Acne treatment is specific to the sufferer. Dr. Santos will work to better understand the origin and scope of your breakouts, so she can offer the best treatment. Treatment options can include:
If you have acne scars, Dr. Santos may recommend microneedling to eliminate them and replace them with clear, smooth skin. You may also benefit from high-quality products like JACE, available at Marissa T. Santos, M.D.
