Skin Rejuvenation

What causes wrinkles and other signs of aging?

When you’re young, your skin has more structural proteins, collagen and elastin. Over time you naturally lose most of that collagen and elastin. Without the same level of support, your skin is left to sag and pool into lines, wrinkles, and folds. 

Years of sun exposure and environmental toxins also take a toll. It’s not uncommon to notice dark spots, enlarged pores, and dull texture as you move through middle age and beyond. 

 

What can be done to combat the signs of aging?

Fortunately, there are medical anti-aging aesthetics treatments that can help you look younger. Your needs are unique, which is why you’ll begin the process with a personalized consultation to evaluate your skin and discuss your treatment goals. 

The team at FoRM Health PDX offers a wide range of services to correct troubled skin and help you restore a healthy complexion:

IPL Photofacial

Target and diminishes the appearance of brown spots (sun damage) and red spots (broken blood vessels) to create a brighter, clearer complexion. IPL photofacials are best-suited for patients whose primary concern is discoloration.

Sublative skin resurfacing

Sublative skin resurfacing corrects scarring, acne, texture issues, fine lines, and wrinkles with the use of heat to achieve a smoother, brighter complexion with firmer skin tone. 

Sublative skin resurfacing is best-suited for patients looking for a complexion "reset" following a history of acne, scarring, and aging skin.

PRP skin rejuvenation

Platelet-rich plasma treatments, including the PRP Facial & PRP Facelift, stimulate the regeneration of healthy, more youthful appearance without surgery, fillers and down-time. The team’s gold standard, anti-aging skin rejuvenating facial for general anti-aging concerns.

Microneedling

Microneedling refers to a collagen induction technique used to address skin texture issues and early signs of aging. With the use of an automated medical device consisting of several tiny needles, your provider stimulates a healing response resulting in more collagen and elastin. Microneedling is best for early signs of aging, mild acne, and to maintain a youthful appearance.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture using an abrasive surface applicator, which polishes the outer layer of skin for a smoother, more even complexion. Microdermabrasion is best-suited for patients looking to immediately achieve a glowing complexion.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are a quick and effective procedure using an acidic solution aimed at achieving smoother, more even complexion. Best for patients looking to address superficial scarring, discoloration and acne with a quick turn-around time. 

The team is proud to offer a variety of services for every skin type and skin issue. Schedule a consultation to meet with a FoRM Health PDX specialist to determine the best treatment for you.

 

What is an IPL photofacial?

An IPL photofacial is a laser treatment that uses the power of light to address multiple types of skin discoloration. IPL stands for intense pulsed light, a therapy that uses multiple wavelengths of light to penetrate deeply into your skin. 

During treatment, a handpiece pulses light into your skin, where it’s attracted to the cells that produce hyperpigmentation. That light is converted into heat, which damages the overactive pigment cells. 

Those cells soon die off, and the accumulated pigments work their way to the surface of your skin and flake off in small, dark particles that resemble coffee grounds. 

An IPL photofacial can improve the appearance of:

  • Rosacea
  • Sun damage
  • Redness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Spider veins

It usually takes a series of sessions to achieve optimal results, but you’ll begin to notice improvements in just a few weeks.

 

What is sublative skin resurfacing?

Sublative skin resurfacing is a noninvasive procedure that creates plumper, smoother skin. Treatments also reduce hyperpigmentation and improve the texture of your skin. The ability to achieve multiple aesthetic goals is one reason sublative skin resurfacing is so popular. 

FoRM Health PDX uses the Elos laser platform for sublative skin resurfacing. The system offers unparalleled efficacy and safety, and relies on a combination of light energy and radio-frequency energy to create beautiful results. 

Treatments do not disrupt your epidermal layers. The technology behind the Elos system creates changes in the deeper layers of skin. During sessions, the treatment device is moved over the targeted areas, where it delivers energy that prompts your body’s natural healing response. 

In the weeks following treatment, your body produces new collagen and elastin, which smooths and plumps your skin, creating a tighter, more contoured appearance. At the same time, treatment can also address scarring, age spots, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.
