Rejuvenating Your Skin With VoluDerm Treatment in New York City
As we age, our facial skin gets thinner and more fragile, which tends to make age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and scars worse. Our body’s ability to regenerate new skin slows down, which can make faces appear sunken and old. Many of our clients come to Rejuve NYC looking for safe and noninvasive ways to bring back a healthy, glowing and voluminous look to their skin.
Luckily, with new advances in skincare technology,there are many options for effective skin restoration. Rejuve NYC offers VoluDerm Technology, a state-of-the-art treatment for volumizing the skin.
What is VoluDerm Technology and What Does it Treat?
The VoluDerm treatment uses many tiny micro-pins to deliver radio-frequency energy to the inner layer of skin, or dermis. VoluDerm creates columns of thermal microablation. The process is a form of fractional healing, which means that the specific areas of thermal microablation will trigger the body’s natural inflammatory response.
Fibroblasts, specific skin cells that produce collagen, will be recruited to the areas. Collagen is a vital skin protein that is responsible for the skin’s shape and contour. After a VoluDerm treatment, more collagen will be produced, which, over time, adds to the volume of the skin. Increased collagen will also give the skin a tighter and firmer look. VoluDerm is not a skin-resurfacing treatment. This means that the epidermis, or outer layer of the skin that serves as a protective barrier, will remain unharmed and intact. Because the epidermis will be untouched, the recovery time for this procedure is minimal.
Who Are Good Candidates for VoluDerm?
A good candidate for Voluderm is anyone who is looking to improve the texture, tone and volume of his or her skin. Specifically, VoluDerm is great for dermal volume enhancement, wrinkle reduction, fine lines reduction, improvement of acne scars, skin resurfacing, improvement in skin texture and tone. VoluDerm is safe and approved for all skin types and all skin colors. Anyone who is looking for a fast, noninvasive way to improve skin volume, should consider Voluderm.
What to Expect from a VoluDerm Treatment:
At Rejuve Clinic, we begin every treatment with a consultation where we get to know you and your cosmetic expectations. We take a complete medical history which assists in determining the best treatment option. We will ask about any medical illnesses, previous skin treatments, medications, vitamins and allergies.
A physical examination of the area to be treated will be conducted next by a board certified doctor. Crucial for making sure a proper diagnosis is made, an exam also helps the medical staff to understand the cosmetic condition. With the diagnosis in hand, the treatment team will make a recommendation. During this consultation, you are encouraged to ask any questions you may have and express your concerns.
When it is time to begin the VoluDerm treatment, a certified medical professional will gently apply micro-needles to the skin area(s) being treated. These needles will smoothly and painlessly puncture the skin in specific areas. Most patients do not feel anything or complain about the sensation.
Our primary goal is a satisfying outcome.
At the beginning of your treatment, Lidocaine will be applied to the skin. After about 30 minutes you will feel little to no pain and the procedure will begin. A licenses medical professional will inject the chosen filler into the designated skin area — a process usually lasting from 15 – 30 minutes.
After the procedure, the skin will rejuvenate over the following two weeks. Generally, you should see significant improvements in the volume and texture of your skin approximately fourteen days following the procedure.
