How do you know if you are a candidate for facial skin treatment?
If your skin shows evidence of chronic exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet light, our laser facial will work for you.
Physicians call the condition “photodamage,” and the most obvious signs are coarsening of skin texture, wrinkling, irregular pigmentation, and enlarged blood vessels and pores.Facial skin treatment is the visible improvement of sun-damaged skin through the use of laser technology to remove enlarged blood vessels and irregular pigmentation, and stimulate the underlying collagen.The speed, power, and gentleness of our lasers have resulted in acceptance in the practices of laser centers around the world.
How do I know if I have photodamaged skin?
If you are over 30 years old and enjoy an active lifestyle, your skin is probably showing signs of damage.
How does laser treatment reduce the signs of photodamage?
Lasers work by focusing a beam of light to a target in the skin such as enlarged blood vessels and irregular pigmentation. The enlarged vessels and irregularities are removed without scarring or damage to the treated or surrounding area while the underlying collagen is stimulated.
Do lasers work on all skin types?
Today’s advanced lasers are capable of treating all skin types.
Which other conditions are treatable by lasers?
Elimination of red and brown blemishes, reduction of minor wrinkles, reduction of pore size, and a general tightening of your skin’s collagen.
How many treatments are required?
Typically 3 treatments are required for full-face treatment. The average treatment takes about 20 minutes. Results may become apparent after the first few treatments.
Is the treatment painful?
There is no discomfort associated with the treatment. Cooling with our cold air system will allow you to only feel a warming sensation during the treatment process.
How does laser treatment differ from CO2 lasers, chemical peels, and dermabrasion?
Unlike CO2 lasers, dermabrasion or chemical peels that remove the outer skin and require significant healing time, the laser gently penetrates the skin without damaging it and destroys the blood vessels and brown pigment that are the cause of the problem. It also tightens the collagen and minimizes large pores.
How does laser treatment differ from treatment with other photo skin treatment lasers? Is it safe?
Side effects are minimal. Lasers have been used since 1983 to treat port wine birthmarks and hemangiomas in infants as young as two days old as well as 20 different cosmetic conditions.
What will I look like after treatment?
Results will vary but you should expect your skin to appear reddened. You can expect to return to your normal activities immediately with minimal precautions such as sunscreen.
What is the cost of the treatment?
Cost is based on the area treated, typically a complete laser facial can be performed for $165.00.
