Your skin is your largest organ, and as you get older, it’s also one of the first parts of your body to show the effects of aging. At Seeker Professional Aesthetics, Dr. Christopher Seeker and Casey Friesenhahn, WHCNP, use an array of skin renewal techniques to reduce the effects of aging and encourage skin regeneration, helping women and men in Austin, Texas, look as young as they feel.

Your skin takes a lot of abuse during your life, with daily exposure to the sun, wind, and dry air, not to mention airborne pollutants, germs, and chemicals from soaps, personal-care products, and detergents. As you get older, the toll of all those abuses becomes a lot more evident on your skin, especially as your skin becomes drier and loses some of its natural elements like collagen and elastin.
As a result, your skin is more likely to develop wrinkles and lines. Even smaller scars become more obvious. The loss of natural volume that occurs with aging results in skin looking and feeling saggy and loose. Skin renewal uses products and procedures designed to combat all these problems so your skin looks renewed, refreshed, and revitalized.
The staff at Seeker Professional Aesthetics strives to provide a wide range of treatment options to enable patients to find just the right treatment for their needs, including treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, scars, stretch marks, and ugly veins. Some of the options include:
ThreeForMe is an in-office treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser energy to treat three common age-related skin concerns — sun damage, wrinkles, and facial veins — in a single procedure that takes just about 30 minutes.
During the ThreeForMe procedure, Dr. Seeker makes two passes over the treatment area with the special handpiece. During the first pass, the handpiece emits IPL energy to address discoloration, uneven skin tone, and areas of hyperpigmentation, including age spots and freckles. IPL can also help reduce the appearance of spider veins and rosacea. During the second pass, the handpiece emits highly focused laser energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin so skin feels firmer and lines and wrinkles are reduced.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that uses a blade to gently remove the very top layers of dead, dull skin, revealing fresher, healthier skin underneath. As a result, your skin looks brighter and feels smoother.
The best way to decide which treatments are most appropriate for your needs is to schedule an office visit. Dr. Seeker and nurse practitioner Friesenhahn can carefully review your goals and work with you to create a custom treatment plan just for you.
