Are you looking for a way to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day? Try cosmetic dermatology treatments for a glowing complexion. These effective options produce stunning results with little downtime. They’re also the perfect unique Valentine’s Day gifts for a partner who loves skincare.
Fall in Love With IPL
Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses a concentrated energy beam to break down pigmented and damaged skin cells. IPL works similarly to laser therapy but can deliver multiple wavelengths to address different cosmetic issues.
If you want to improve the appearance of acne scars, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, spider veins, or melasma, a series of IPL treatments could be the perfect noninvasive way to achieve your aesthetic goals. While you might have a little redness or swelling for one to three days, there’s virtually no downtime.
Treat Yourself to Glowing Skin With Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment that exfoliates dead skin cells with a small handheld device to reveal a radiant complexion underneath. The process also stimulates collagen and elastin production which gives your skin a youthful appearance.
While IPL can cause pigmentation issues if you have a darker or olive complexion, microdermabrasion is safe for all skin tones. This skin rejuvenation treatment can minimize sun damage, discoloration, light scarring, and stretch marks.
Embrace Smoother Skin With a Chemical Peel
If you want to break up with dull skin this year, try a chemical peel. These highly customizable treatments use alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol in varying strengths to slough off damaged skin and reveal a smoother complexion underneath.
Superficial peels can cause temporary irritation, redness, and flaking, while stronger peels may cause swelling for several weeks. Fortunately, many skin issues can be addressed with lighter chemical peels, including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and acne. Deeper peels are typically only used to treat substantial skin damage and advanced aging.
