How to Radically Rejuvenate Your Skin

Bloomfield Hills, MI – Long gone are the days when the only options for better skin were vast amounts of makeup or painful, time-consuming procedures. While a healthy lifestyle goes a long way, sometimes it’s just not enough to keep skin youthful, even, and smooth. Luckily, there are more options now than ever before for getting –and maintaining– perfection.

“We have so many ways to help people have the appearance they’ve always dreamed of,” says top Michigan surgeon, Dr. Ali. The board-certified doctor, with more than 6,000 plastic surgeries to his credit, continues, “Contrary to popular belief, facial treatments don’t have to be painful or expensive, and they may take less time than most people think. For some procedures, patients can come in during the morning and return to work after lunch.” Below are some of the newest offerings from Dr. Ali’s Amae Plastic Surgery Center.

Non-ablative Laser Facial Treatments

This popular procedure is ideal for treating age spots, scars, wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin. As it doesn’t damage the skin’s surface, healing is relatively fast. Also called fractional resurfacing, non-ablative treatments can give the skin a more even tone with a very minimal amount of pain. What’s better, this type of procedure can have pronounced results for even those under 50 with non-sagging skin.

Photo Facials

Depending on the patient’s goals, photo facials are used for everything from reducing brown spots, acne, spider veins, and redness, to boosting the body’s production of collagen. “There are several different versions of this treatment, so it’s important to talk with your doctor to best match your needs,” advises Dr. Ali. The two main types of photo facials utilize light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or intense pulsed light (IPL). “Since these treatments have different modalities and outcomes, I carefully consult with each patient to decide which will yield the best results possible.”

While prices can vary on photo facials, it’s still a fairly inexpensive way to revitalize skin.

Micro Needling

Micro needling is a fast, simple and nearly painless procedure that doesn’t use chemicals or abrasives. Instead, it uses a series of tiny needles that stimulate the body’s production of collagen and skin repair mechanisms. “What’s great about micro needling,” notes Dr. Ali, “is that it can be done easily and on any area of the body. You can return to work immediately following treatment, and the outcome is fantastic.” Drastic improvements are noticeable within a few weeks, though multiple visits are usually recommended for optimal benefits.

Micro needling can treat fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, scars, aging hands, and loosening skin. It can also be effective as a way to fill in acne scars and improve overall skin tone.

The cost of this procedure can vary, so a conversation with a doctor is crucial. “The treatment can include a numbing agent or not, growth factor serum or not, aftercare or not, so I’m happy to discuss options with each patient,” says Dr. Ali, noting that such customization is key to attaining lasting results.

Using a Combination of Cosmetic Surgery Treatments

“When trying to achieve your ideal skin, it’s often best to use a combination of treatments,” notes Dr. Ali. “Using multiple methods can get you the desired results in a timely and sustainable manner.” Since many of these procedures may require several repetitions, it’s important to keep in mind your ultimate goals.

“Of course,” Dr. Ali adds, “taking care of yourself is also paramount. A good diet, regular exercise, good sleep, and at-home skincare all contribute to having a healthy life. However, there are now other ways we can improve upon your physique, so why not take advantage of that as well?”

Dr. Ali is happy to consult with patients to develop a detailed care plan perfectly suited to their desires.

How Photofacial Treatments Give You the Radiant Complexion You’ve Always Wanted

Bloomfield Hills, MI – If you are unhappy with your skin’s complexion or you have a skin ailment that has been bothering you for some time, there is a revolutionary new cosmetic surgery treatment you’ll certainly want to know about.

The treatment that can give you more youthful, radiant, and blemish-free skin is known as the “Photofacial,” also referred to photorejuvenation, and uses the power of mere light to help you look your very best.

Here is all you need to know about photofacial treatments so you can start planning the procedure that can give you the smooth, even-textured you’ve always wanted.

What Does Photofacial Treatment Consist Of?

When you go to the office of top Detroit plastic surgeon Dr. M. Azhar Ali for a photofacial treatment, you can expect to experience Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) first-hand.

Dr. Ali uses a device called the Frax 1550 Nordlys Hybrid System to administer SWT, which consists of highly-filtered light pulses that break up the upper skin layer and invigorate the skin underneath, bringing your natural radiance to the surface.

The Frax 1550 is technology handcrafted in Denmark and sports 15 FDA-approved treatments.

What is Photofacial Treatment Used For?

You would schedule an appointment with Dr. Ali if you wanted to get rid of damaged or wrinkled skin, or skin that’s marred by stretch marks, scars, acne, or age spots.

You would also come to Dr. Ali for a photofacial treatment if you notice uneven pigmentation, redness, and other skin problems you’ve tried to address yourself to no avail. The treatment can also be used for hand rejuvenation.

How Does a Photofacial Work?

Dr. Ali will ensure you are comfortable; then he will use an apparatus that emits a pulsing light over the affected area. The treatment time varies, but should only last around 15-30 minutes on average.

Is There Any Discomfort or Downtime?

Dr. Ali is one of the first plastic surgeons to offer the Nordlys Hybrid System. He chose the system because it is non-invasive, safe, and virtually painless. There is also minimal downtime.

Do the Treatments Work Right Away?

While every cosmetic surgery case is different, you should see an improvement in your skin color and tone following the very first treatment. If you have a severe case of sun damage or other skin problem, you may require additional treatments to achieve the desired results.

You may also require additional treatments if you tend to be of the fairer skinned variety, as Dr. Ali will be forced to lower the settings on the Frax 1550 to keep from burning your skin.

On average, patients visit Dr. Ali for 3-4 sessions of photofacial treatments before noticing maximum results.

Are the Results Permanent?

The results of a photofacial treatment can be extremely long lasting if you protect your skin from the sun and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen while out and about during the day.
If you don’t care for your skin as Dr. Ali recommends, you may have to return for re-treatment in the near future.

What Results Can Be Expected?

SWT technology uses longer wavelengths of light than the sunlight that reach deep into your skin to stimulate new collagen production. This gives your skin a more youthful and radiant glow.

You will also see an improvement in the texture of your skin. It will be smoother and softer to the touch, allowing you to not only look your best but feel that way too.

How Much is a Photofacial?

While your cost may vary depending on the areas that need to be treated and how many treatments you opt to receive, the average price for a photofacial treatment is around $450.

Do you still have questions about photofacial treatments (photorejuvenation) and how they can give you glowing and more youthful skin? Contact Dr. Ali at Amae Plastic Surgery Center in Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, Michigan to schedule a consultation.
