What do I do for my aging skin?

As an RN and Aesthetician I often get asked about how to treat aging skin. My answer is always first come in for a skin consultation. It is important to determine how your skin is aging, which area’s concern you the most and what your goals are and budget. Treatments are completed in different stages and I will work with you to determine the best treatment course for you.

Home care is the first place to start. As our skin ages we need to ensure the products we use contain growth factors, retinoid, vitamin C and alpha hydroxyl acids.

In Spa treatments include microdermabrasion, dermaplane, chemical peels, microneedling, and various laser treatments.

Medical treatments include deep skin resurfacing lasers such as a CO2 and wrinkle and volume loss correction with aesthetic injections.

Surgery can be a full facelift or perhaps a brow or eyelid lift.

At Schenden’s we offer all of the above and can ensure that your skin receives the appropriate care to achieve your goals.

Call me, Raquel Merlini, today for your free consultation. Schenden’s Medical Day Spa 248-524- 3622 or for Medical treatments 248-524- 0620.

Laser resurfacing and rejuvenation

Laser resurfacing and rejuvenation with ActiveFX Fractional CO2 Laser.

Laser rejuvenation and resurfacing is popular for many reasons. It offers a solution to wrinkles, fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, sun spots, freckles and/or aging and damaged skin. I myself have had laser treatments and have seen significant improvement after just one treatment. I was speaking with my staff earlier today about this very topic and will be scheduling my second treatment with the ActiveFX CO2 fractional laser. At any age, it is important to feel your best and put your best face forward.

The ActiveFX fractional laser can improve a wide range of skin conditions while refreshing the overall appearance of the skin. The procedure offers patients the opportunity to be in and out with moderate downtime, as the procedure typically takes about a half hour and recovery takes 5 to 7 days.

Every patient’s skin is different, which is why a consultation is so important. It provides the opportunity to assess the patient’s condition and do a thorough evaluation of the skin. Our practice offers DeepFX resurfacing for scar revision solutions also. For more information on the Active or DeepFX or other skin treatments please contact 248-524-0620 for a consultation.
