As Dr. Tseng’s patients enter the workforce or expand their social circles, they may be in pursuit of aesthetic treatments to boost their confidence. Skin care procedures might include those designed to prevent or manage acne flare-ups, or to combat scars that represent painful reminders of previous outbreaks in adolescence.
Dr. Tseng offers a range of effective, low-risk treatments, including:
- Light-based devices such as the OmniLux, which projects powerful blue light onto affected zones to kill pimple-producing bacteria
- Lasers like the PicoWay, which deliver ultra-short pulses to penetrate deeply without heating and damaging the skin, promoting the creation of new firming collagen and springy elastin to soften scars
- Radiofrequency therapies such as Infini, which also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to treat scars
- HydraFacial, a “twist” on the traditional facial that controls oily skin (a major cause of breakouts) with deep cleansing, exfoliation, and the extraction of pore-clogging dead skin cells, as well as the application of beneficial substances such as antioxidants
Even 20-somethings with clear skin may want to address other concerns (such as poor skin texture) with non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Lasers such as LaseMD precisely target visible pores, fine lines, benign spots, and leathery texture by creating tiny micro-channels in the skin. This approach minimizes unwanted side effects, and promotes healing and neocollagenesis, and new collagen results in smoother, even, softer, and generally healthier skin. Dr. Tseng may recommend microneedling to treat freckles and a range of other conditions. A device equipped with hair-fine microneedles creates tiny punctures. As the skin heals itself, the collagen and elastin that is generated reveals a radiant glow, smoother complexion, and silkier texture. These results may be complemented with Platelet Rich Plasma, which also speeds healing. Twenty-somethings can also open up more time in their packed schedule via laser hair removal. Lasers are the permanent answer to a smooth face and body, and are also better tolerated than earlier-generation treatments for lasting hair removal. Advanced devices that use Radiofrequency and ultrasound energies, and therapeutic vibrations, including BodyTite, Exilis, and Cellutone, treat the cellulite that burdens women regardless of age, body type, and weight.
