Acne occurs when the oil produced by sebaceous glands does not reach the surface of the skin but is trapped in tiny pores or follicles. This acne plug may close off the pore, causing blackheads and whiteheads. Pimples are formed when the bacteria and pus leak from the follicle into the surrounding tissue from the blackhead and whiteheads. The most common treatments for these acne blackhead and whiteheads are microdermabrasion with extractions. If cystic acne is present or acne scarring has occurred a more aggressive treatment may be needed like a series of chemical peels, microneedling treatments, laser treatments or even the use of dermal fillers to fill in the scarring which can't be erased. Many medical grade products and procedures are available at Ageless MediSpa in Ashland, KY, aging skin to help resolve the problems of acne.
Prevention of Aging Skin
Aging skin is inevitable. But there are many things we can do to help prolong and intersect the process of aging skin. Products containing antioxidants, peptides, and nutrients containing human growth factors and broad spectrum UVA and UVB Sunscreen are just a few aging skin products which have been successfully linked to anti-aging products. Also the use of lasers, chemical peels, Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) and monthly regimen of microdermabrasion help in the continuous stimulation of new collagen growth and elastin and help with the brown spots and age spots which is linked to aging skin.
Brown Spots and Age Spots
Most brown spots, sometimes referred to as age spots, sun spots, uneven skin tones or freckles, can be reduced or removed by the use of laser therapy, microdermabrasion and even chemical peels. We have many products which will aid in the reduction or disappearance of these brown spots. The most critical thing you must realize is that it is imperative for you to use a broad spectrum sunscreen to reduce the factor of more damage to be done.
Most women have some level of cellulite, which is fat that appears as deep dimpled skin. Cellulite ranges in severity so obviously so does treatment options. Weight loss, Lasers using radio frequency and Liposuction are the most successful procedures found to be available on the market right now.
Everyone’s concepts of deep wrinkles are different. But we can help to stimulate the collagen below in the dermis layer to stimulate growth and plumb the areas, filling those deeper wrinkles. We also use dermal fillers to help add volume in the deep folds and wrinkles.
The first recommendation for someone with dry or itchy skin would be to experience the results from a medical microdermabrasion. This helps to exfoliate the top layers of dead skin and rejuvenate the epidermis giving it the ability to absorb those great moisturizing products you are using. Not to mention the wonderfully moisturizing anti-aging antioxidants, peptides, and collagen stimulating nutrients.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
It is inevitable that we are all going to experience some fine lines and wrinkles as we get older. Some say genetics, life-style, or diet is what helps to accelerate the loss of collagen causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. We can significantly reduce these fine lines and wrinkles by using Botox, Dysport, microdermabrasion, chemical peel, and tightening with a refirming laser to stimulate that collagen growth.
We carry many products to help you with protection of future sun damage and age spots caused by the sun and other pollutants and free radicals which our skin absorbs.

Laser Hair Removal used to remove unwanted hair works by sending a beam of laser light to the hair follicles with enough power to disable or destroy the root, but not enough power to harm the skin. Laser Hair only destroys hair in its active growth phase called the anagen phase. This anagen phase lasts several years, and up to 85% of our hair is in that phase at any given time. Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body for men and women-from small areas such as your upper lip, underarms, bikini area, chin, neck, and face, to larger areas such as arms, chest, back, and legs.
