Are you interested in bringing back the youthful skin you once had? Many lotions and potions claim to be the next fountain of youth but realistically we know that their results may be temporary or that they simply don’t work at all. If you want to do something that can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin then consider having Chemabrasion done by Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry J. Perkins.
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, leading to sagging and relaxation. Further breakdown of collagen and elastin is accelerated by sun damage (UV exposure) causing the skin to weaken and wrinkle in the areas that are moved by muscles of facial expression. Smoking and genetics also play a role in the appearance of wrinkles. Chemabrasion, a skin resurfacing procedure, addresses wrinkles and a number of other skin issues including acne scarring and pits, skin irregularities, facial scars, pre-cancerous lesions and early skin cancers.
The unique procedure of Chemabrasion combines a light to moderate dermabrasion (not to be confused with microdermabrasion) with a medium depth chemical peel. General anesthesia is not required, but local anesthesia in addition to oral sedation alone or in combination with an IV sedation is sufficient for comfort and unawareness. Most people will see a 70 to 80 percent decrease in wrinkles and a 50 percent (or greater) improvement to acne scars. See before-and-after pictures of Chemabrasion done by Dr. Perkins on his website.
