Once you reach a certain age, each passing year seems to bring more and more imperfections and conditions. Your skin no longer seems to be as tight as before, your wrinkles become deeper, and there is hair where you don’t want it to be. These are enough to make any person feel self-conscious.
It’s a new year, which means that it is time to leave all of that behind. And with the current advancements in laser technology, what other procedure can be deemed as the best treatment? Read our blog and find out some great treatments to bring the new you forward.
Laser treatments rely on different light wavelengths to deliver heat to your skin. The warmth emitted by the laser triggers your skin’s healing response, which promotes cell turnover. While subtle and limited to the already damaged surface cells, your skin perceives the heat of the laser as an injury. In response, it will start producing more collagen to repair itself.
Depending on the wavelength and type of laser used, this procedure can treat anything from melasma and sun spots to wrinkles, fine lines, and lax skin. Some lasers can also reduce the size of your pores and improve acne-prone skin, diminishing your breakouts along with your acne scars. The heat delivered by the laser can also break down spider veins and red spots, reducing excess redness.
There are different types of laser procedures you can choose from, depending on the condition that you want to treat. Here is what we offer at the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa:
Forma™ is a procedure frequently used for its skin-tightening benefits. Employing radiofrequency technology, which is less strong in comparison to physical light, this treatment can help reduce imperfections with very little discomfort. Once the RF energy begins penetrating your skin, it will trigger the muscles and skin to contract, stimulating collagen production. It can reduce signs of aging, leading to much smoother-looking skin.
Smooth skin can be very difficult to achieve, especially when you live in an area with harsh sun and strong pollution. This is where the Photofacial and Gemini-Yag laser may come to your rescue. Relying on IPL therapy, the treatment uses bright lights to reduce aging signs along with different facial imperfections. The laser will target excess melanin and trigger collagen production, causing very little discomfort to your skin.
ActiveFX and DeepFX make use of a fractional laser, which has one major goal: to replace your damaged skin cells on the surface with the healthier ones underneath. Once they have penetrated your skin, these lasers will affect a “fraction” of the surface, causing the damaged, blemished skin to peel off. Within a few days, the healthy cells will come to the surface, offering you a fresh look.
If you are tired of constant waxing and shaving that only leads to inflamed follicles and ingrown hairs, laser hair removal can be a great solution for you. The Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ treatment uses heat to target the melanin within the hair follicle, gradually damaging it until it is no longer able to grow more hair. Once this happens, your skin will become much smoother. Within just a few weeks, you should be able to start noticing results.
Laser treatments represent a good way for you to improve the smoothness of your skin and reduce the signs of aging. Finding the treatment that is most appropriate for your skin condition and your goals is important.
