20 Nov Alternative Skin Treatment Options To Botox & Dermal Fillers
At Zecca, we offer a variety of alternative treatments to botox and dermal fillers.
These treatments include, among others, light therapy, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.
In this blog post, we will discuss what they are and the benefits of these alternative treatments and why you should consider them for your skin concerns.
12 Skin Treatment Options
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it’s important to keep it healthy and to look its best. Various skin treatment options are available to help you achieve and maintain healthy, attractive skin. By taking advantage of these options, you can enjoy beautiful, healthy skin at any age.
Omnilux Light Therapy
As we age, our skin begins to show the accumulated effects of sun exposure, pollution, and other environmental stressors. Fine lines and wrinkles become more pronounced, and age spots may start to appear. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive treatment that can help to reduce the visible signs of skin ageing: omnilux light therapy.
This pure light source helps to stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. Additionally, omnilux light therapy can help to diminish age spots and other pigmentation irregularities.
Most people see significant improvement after just a few treatments, making omnilux light therapy an ideal option for anyone looking to rejuvenate their appearance.
Microdermabrasion is a leading technique for deeply exfoliating the skin. It uses a combination of negative pressure and a gentle abrading surface coated with minute diamonds to remove dead skin cells, stimulate new skin cells and reveal the healthier layers beneath.
While some temporary redness may occur after microdermabrasion, it is still one of the safest, most popular and most effective procedures. Microdermabrasion can be used to address many conditions, including acne, roughness, dullness and poor circulation.
If you are considering microdermabrasion, be sure to consult with a qualified dermatologist or esthetician. It will ensure you have the right treatment for your particular needs.
Dermapen is a collagen induction therapy used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and other skin imperfections. The patient’s skin is numbed with an anesthetic cream before the dermapen is used to create thousands of tiny punctures in the skin.
Dermapen treatments are quick and easy, with little to no downtime required afterwards. So if you’re looking for a safe and effective way to improve your skin’s appearance, Dermapen micro-needling may be right for you. This procedure stimulates collagen production deep within the skin, leading to new collagen and elastin forming over time.
Chemical peels are a popular treatment option for many people seeking to improve the appearance of their skin. A chemical peel is a resurfacing technique in which a solution of TCA (trichloroacetic acid) is applied to the face to help with sun damage, facial wrinkles, uneven skin tone and pigment abnormalities. The concentration of the peel varies according to need. Downtime can be minimal or last up to a week.
Chemical peels are an effective treatment option for many people seeking to improve the appearance of their skin.
If you’re looking for a skin treatment option that can help improve your overall complexion, photofacial rejuvenation (or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)) may be right for you. This treatment uses laser technology to target pigment in the skin, including difficult-to-treat hormonal pigment known as melasma.
In addition to decreasing pigment, photofacial rejuvenation can also increase collagen production, reduce oil production, and improve skin tone and luminosity.
It may be an ideal treatment option if you’re concerned about pigmentation, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
Melasma is a common skin condition that can be difficult to treat. At Zacca, we use a low and slow approach that includes microdermabrasion, facial mask and three types of light and laser treatments. This approach effectively controls the condition, and our patients have seen good results.
Laser Mole Removal, Cryotherapy, and Electrocautery to Remove Skin Tags, Moles, Lumps and Bumps
There are three main skin treatment options for patients looking to remove moles, skin tags, lumps and bumps. They are laser mole removal, cryotherapy, and electrocautery. Each option has its benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to consult a qualified dermatologist to determine which treatment is right for you.
Laser mole removal is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses targeted laser energy to destroy the abnormal tissue. The advantage of this procedure is that it is relatively quick and involves little discomfort. However, there is a risk of scarring and pigmentation changes.
Cryotherapy involves freezing abnormal tissue with liquid nitrogen. This treatment is often used for small lesions such as warts or skin tags. It is a safe and effective option with minimal side effects. However, it can be painful and may require multiple treatments.
Electrocautery uses electrical currents to destroy abnormal tissue. This treatment is more invasive than laser or cryotherapy but can be effective for larger lesions. There is a risk of scarring and pigmentation changes with this procedure. A qualified dermatologist should only perform electrocautery.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a new and exciting option for people seeking facial rejuvenation. PRP uses your platelets to regenerate your skin. The platelets release growth factors that repair tissue damage and encourage cell renewal. PRP is often combined with a Dermapen treatment for comprehensive inside-outside rejuvenation. The Dermapen is a handheld device that creates micro-wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its firmness and elasticity.
The Dermapen treatment combined with PRP gives you the best chance for amazing results. If you seek an alternative to surgery or injectables, PRP may be the right choice.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a skin treatment option that combines an advanced pharmaceutical, ALA (aminolevulinic acid), with a light source. PDT is suitable for any part of your face or body and is as effective for back acne as for rough patches on the backs of a hand.
The procedure targets the cells causing these problems with the light source and the ALA. As a result, PDT can be an effective treatment for acne, precancerous skin lesions and even some cancerous skin lesions.
Cosmeceuticals and Medical-Grade Skincare
Cosmeceuticals are a new category of skincare that are cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients. The term cosmeceutical combines the words “cosmetic” and “pharmaceutical”.
Cosmeceuticals are designed to improve the health and appearance of the skin. They are available without a prescription and are often found in department stores or pharmacies. Cosmeceuticals may contain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, botanicals or other ingredients. These ingredients can treat conditions such as acne, rosacea, wrinkles, dryness and sun damage. Cosmeceuticals are a safe and effective way to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Medical-grade skincare products contain active ingredients that are not available over the counter and can deliver excellent results. When choosing a medical-grade skincare product, selecting one with the right combination of active ingredients is important. The concentration of these ingredients is also important, as too little or too much will not produce the desired effect. However, when used correctly, medical-grade skincare products can help you achieve the healthy and beautiful skin you have always wanted.
At Zecca, we offer a variety of skin treatments to help with everything from pigmentation and scarring to overall rejuvenation. We can help you defy the effects of time and keep your skin looking healthier for longer.

There are three different levels of chemical peels, and each level penetrates deeper into the skin. A deep peel will reach the deepest layers of the skin.
