If you’re looking to reverse the signs of aging on your skin but aren’t ready for invasive surgery, you can find a great selection of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments at YCO Facial Plastic Surgery in Encinitas, California.
Mario Yco, MD, and our experienced team offer several treatment options that can revive tired-looking, dull skin to give you a fresher, more youthful appearance. Our treatments can also revitalize the health of your skin, so you can maintain long-lasting results.
Explore your options for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation
Dr. Yco offers a variety of in-office treatments that can rejuvenate your skin. To know which treatment is the best for your unique skin, he first performs a comprehensive skin evaluation, taking into consideration your skin’s health and your aesthetic goals. Among the options he may recommend are the following:
TCA chemical peels
A TCA peel uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. TCA peels also stimulate your body to produce new, healthy skin cells, so your skin can look younger and smoother. We can also use a TCA peel to address common skin conditions, such as acne scars, melasma, and discoloration.
Dr. Yco offers different peel strengths, so you can achieve your desired results. And he uses top-of-the-line products, such as Transform Peel from Jan Marini Skin Research®.
Clear + Brilliant laser treatments
Clear + Brilliant® laser treatments require no incisions or invasive procedures. We use a handheld laser, and it can minimize the size of your pores, smooth out fine lines, and restore your skin’s youthful vibrancy.
Laser sessions typically take 30 minutes or less, and you can see improvements in your skin tone and texture soon after your treatment is complete.
Microneedling uses a special device to create micro wounds on the surface of your skin. This stimulates your body’s natural healing response and triggers the production of collagen in the treatment area.
We can use microneedling to lessen the severity of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the size of pores, and minimize the appearance of acne scars. Dr. Yco can also use the microneedling technology to move topical vitamins and hyaluronic acids deeper into your skin to nourish it.
CO2 laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing using fractional laser technology can reduce the severity of age-related skin flaws, such as wrinkles and age spots specifically from sun damage.
This noninvasive treatment uses a CO2 laser to target areas of damaged skin with pinpoint accuracy. The treated skin falls off to reveal the soft, smooth skin underneath.
Using novel energy source, Fractional Plasma technology, Opus Plasma gives the results of traditional laser skin resurfacing but with less 50% less down time. This treatment can be used on all skin types and age groups. These sessions typically take 15-20 minutes.
Injections of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) can help rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. PRF, which is made from a sample of your own blood, is a gel that contains a high concentration of white blood cells, growth factors, and fibrin, which is a protein in your blood. This gel can help build tissue and stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin.
PRF therapy can address creases around your eyes, mouth, and nose to give you a younger, fresher appearance.
PDO stands for polydioxanone which is what these threads are made of. These are dissolvable sutures that Dr. Yco inserts into specific areas of the upper and lower face, neck, brow area, temple area, upper lip area and jowls to lift sagging skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. There is little or no down time and the results can be seen instantly but the final results usually take a month. This procedure is a non surgical face lift that typically lasts 12-15 months.
Other ways to boost your skin’s health
Following any of these treatments, Dr. Yco can provide you with additional resources to support your results. To protect your investment Dr. Yco highly suggests that you use skincare products that contain Vitamin C, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid and SPF.
Medical Grade Skincare Products
Dr. Yco offers anti-aging products including Skinceuticals, Alastin, ISDIN, Colorescience, BrandMD and SoME products that rejuvenate, restore and protect your skin. SoMe is a novel PRP Skincare product to help stimulate collagen and elastin by using your own growth factors from a blood sample then combined with a revolutionary serum to preserve the PRP which can then be used at home.
He can suggest diet and lifestyle changes to improve your skin’s health.
