Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

New England Dry Eye & Aesthetics

What is skin rejuvenation?

Over time, your skin develops irregularities and imperfections as the result of:

  • Age
  • Acne
  • Sun damage
  • Pigmentation changes

As your skin loses collagen and elasticity, it becomes saggy, and you lose fullness in your facial features.

Which skin rejuvenation services are available?

Skin rejuvenation services are available to treat these skin conditions and imperfections, including:

  • Intense pulse light treatments (IPL): uses light wavelengths to reduce skin discoloration and tighten loose skin
  • Chemical peels: removes the outer layers of skin to eliminate sunspots and acne scars
  • Laser treatments: removes the outer layers of skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Dermal fillers: injectable treatments to add volume to skin and reduce wrinkles and lines
  • Botox: paralyzes muscles that cause frown lines near the brow, mouth, and crow’s feet
  • Microdermabrasion: a suction-enhanced scraping and smoothing technique to improve the skin’s surface

Dr. Jaccoma reviews your medical history and evaluates your skin to determine which resurfacing treatment is best for you. He provides comprehensive guidance to care for your skin properly following your rejuvenation procedure.

What can I expect from a chemical peel?

During a chemical peel, Shanda Curtin and the Aesthetic staff use a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin to improve its texture. The solution is applied to appropriate areas of your face, with the concentration and length of time determining the depth of peel produced. Shanda Curtin, RN, offers light, medium, and deep chemical peels to enhance your skin’s look.

Chemical peels are an affordable way to repair skin issues like:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Scaly patches
  • Sun damage

Chemical peels are fast and effective. You can even schedule a chemical peel appointment over your lunch break.

Following a peel, your skin may appear red and irritated for several days. Deep peels require the most recovery time, as redness and skin flaking can last for several weeks. Dr. Jaccoma and the Aesthetic staff recommends using a high-quality sunscreen following treatment to protect your skin as it heals.
