Facial rejuvenation is a broad term that encompasses a variety of procedures aimed at reducing wrinkles, scars, and discoloration, among other things. Manual, chemical, radiologic, or phototherapeutic methods may be used to achieve these objectives, each requiring its own set of tools. A combination of approaches is sometimes used to improve results or solve multiple problems.
Vivace microneedling therapy with radiofrequency and LED light, for example, involves puncturing the outer layer of skin with a manual tool containing many tiny needles to stimulate healing processes that reduce the appearance of wrinkles while also stimulating collagen production to promote skin elasticity. Blue or red LED light can be used at the same time to treat acne and reduce inflammation, respectively.
The following are some other facial rejuvenation modalities and devices in Washington State:
