Our skin accumulates damage as we age - even through normal, everyday tasks. Even simple things like enjoying a sunny day, expressing emotions, and aging can damage your skin.
Once the skin becomes damaged, it may look dull and lifeless. Age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, differences in skin texture, and discoloration are all signs of skin damage. However, there are several face and neck treatments that can help to reverse the damage and improve the appearance of your skin, one of them being laser resurfacing.
What Is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a process in which a laser is used to create tiny micro-wounds around the areas of the face or skin where there are skin imperfections. These micro-wounds are spaced out in specific patterns determined by your skin needs. This removes the damaged layer of skin and stimulates collagen and elastin, giving you long-lasting results.
The Lutronic CO2 Laser
One of the ways skin can be effectively treated and look rejuvenated is with the CO2 Lutronics laser procedure. This procedure uses a fractional laser to reveal a new layer of cells, remove damaged skin, and address common problems like acne scars and sun damage while reducing wrinkles, evening your skin tone.
Another laser resurfacing option is the Halo Laser. The Halo Laser uses a proprietary laser-based treatment that penetrates deep into the skin, delivering exceptional results that can be achieved with minimal patient discomfort. The laser energy targets collagen and other cells, spurring new tissue growth and a more youthful appearance.
Forever Young BBL
Forever Young BBL is another laser treatment that has been cleared by the FDA to treat sun damage, brown spots, and other signs of aging. BBL stands for “Broad Band Light” and uses powerful “broadband” photothermal energy, where the laser gently heats the upper layers of the skin. This additional energy helps stimulate the cells, leading to a restoration of your skin to reveal a smoother and more youthful appearance.
