Types of Skin Treatment

Be nice to your skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and serves as a protective barrier between the internal organs and the external environment. It is composed of multiple layers of specialized cells, tissues, and structures that perform various functions. The skin acts as a physical barrier, protecting the body from harmful external factors such as UV radiation, pathogens, chemicals, and mechanical injury. The skin helps regulate body temperature by sweating to cool the body or by constricting blood vessels to conserve heat. It also plays a role in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance. There are so many types of skin and concerns. In this article, we will discuss about some common skin treatments for acne, skin rejuvenation, hyperpigmentation etc.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peel treatment is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and rejuvenate its appearance. The solution, which contains various acids or other active ingredients, is carefully applied to the skin and left on for a specific period before being neutralized or washed off. Chemical peels are available in different strengths and types, ranging from mild to deep peels. The strength and type of peel used depend on the desired results and the specific skin concerns being addressed. 


Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure that uses a high-speed rotating brush or diamond wheel to mechanically exfoliate the skin’s surface. It is commonly used to treat deep scars, wrinkles, and precancerous skin lesions. The procedure requires anaesthesia and involves a recovery period. 


Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive exfoliation treatment that uses a handheld device to spray tiny crystals or employ a diamond-tipped wand to gently remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. It is effective for improving skin texture, reducing fine lines, and enhancing overall skin appearance. This is the most favourite anti-ageing treatment. 


Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves using a device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This stimulates collagen production, improves skin texture, and reduces the visibility of scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing utilizes laser technology to remove the outer layers of damaged skin, promoting collagen production and revealing smoother, rejuvenated skin. It is effective in treating wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and uneven skin tone. Recovery time varies depending on the depth of treatment.

Laser Rejuvenation

Laser rejuvenation refers to various laser treatments that stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and target specific concerns such as wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation. Different types of lasers are used depending on the desired outcome and the skin condition being addressed.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy involves the use of specific wavelengths of light to target and treat various skin concerns, including hair removal, pigmentation issues, vascular lesions, and tattoo removal. The laser energy is absorbed by specific targets in the skin, resulting in their destruction or modification.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Common fillers include hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid. They provide immediate results, and the effects can last from several months to over a year.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it into the skin. PRP contains growth factors that promote tissue regeneration, improve skin texture, and stimulate collagen production.

Thread Lift

Thread skin treatment, also known as a thread lift, is a non-surgical procedure where dissolvable threads are inserted under the skin to lift and tighten sagging facial or body areas. The threads create a lifting effect, and over time, they stimulate collagen production, further enhancing the results. 


Thermage is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. It is a popular procedure for facial rejuvenation, as well as for treating sagging skin on other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks. The results are long-lasting. During a Thermage treatment, a handheld device with a specialized tip is used to deliver controlled RF energy deep into the skin’s layers. The RF energy heats the underlying tissues, causing collagen fibres to contract and stimulating the production of new collagen over time. This tightening effect helps improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy, such as Ultherapy, is an anti-ageing treatment, that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten loose skin. It targets deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and resulting in a firmer, more lifted appearance. Ultrasound therapy is commonly used on the face, neck, and chest.

Radiofrequency (RF) Therapy

RF therapy utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat the skin’s layers, promoting collagen production, and tightening sagging skin. It can be used to address facial sagging, wrinkles, and body contouring. 

Botox Injections

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic protein that temporarily paralyzes specific muscles when injected. It is commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by muscle contractions, such as forehead lines and crow’s feet.

Hydra Facial

HydraFacial is a multi-step facial treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts impurities and hydrates the skin. It involves a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of serums containing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.

Diamond Glow

Diamond Glow is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of serums to improve skin texture, tone, and hydration. It utilizes a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate and a vacuum suction to extract impurities while simultaneously infusing customized serums.

Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

Fraxel is a fractional laser treatment that delivers precise columns of laser energy to the skin, resurfacing damaged skin, stimulating collagen production and treating various skin concerns, including wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots. It promotes faster healing and minimal downtime compared to traditional laser resurfacing.

Blue Light Therapy for Acne

Blue light therapy involves exposing the skin to specific wavelengths of blue light to target and kill acne-causing bacteria. It is a non-invasive treatment that can help reduce acne breakouts and inflammation.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light therapy utilizes broad-spectrum light to target various skin concerns, such as sun damage, stretch marks, discoloured skin, pigmentation issues, rosacea, acne, birthmarks and vascular lesions. It improves skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen production and breaking down pigmented or vascular lesions.

IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing

Fire & Ice Resurfacing is a facial treatment that combines an intensive resurfacing masque (Fire) with a rejuvenating masque (Ice). It aims to exfoliate, brighten, and nourish the skin, promoting a smoother complexion, improving the overall skin texture and addressing various skin concerns.
