Your skin goes through a lot of changes as you age. Wrinkles, sun damage, age spots and other skin issues eventually appear and develop where there was once youthful looking skin. While these changes are completely natural, you may begin to feel self-conscious about these changes, and understandably so. While there are plenty of surgical options to tighten and soften older skin, not everyone wants to undergo botox injections or a facelift procedure. Luckily there is a gentle, non-invasive way to achieve younger looking skin.
Laser treatments use a concentrated beam of light on your skin to help you achieve the youthful looking skin you desire. Keep reading to learn more about different laser treatments for aging skin and their benefits.
Skin rejuvenation offers stimulation for healthy collagen to restore your skin’s youthful appearance. Nothing more than a beam of laser light touches the skin. The treatment is great for treating fine lines and wrinkles in patients aged 30-55, and can be done on the entire face or on trouble spots only. A typical procedure will take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours depending on the size of the area being treated. However it’s important to note that while the effects of a skin rejuvenation treatment will last for some time, your skin will continue to age. This means another treatment will be needed in order to make the results last.
A micropeel uses a gentle laser to ablate, or remove, the upper most layer of skin to resurface fine lines, wrinkles or skin with an uneven texture. After a micropeel treatment, the skin will take on a healthy glow. Typically only one treatment is needed to see the desired results, but because your skin will continue to age, in order to maintain results you will want to consider having treatments anywhere from every 6-18 months.
Sun Damage & Age Spot Repair
Damage caused by the sun can cause pigment changes to occur on the surface of your skin. This will result in age spots or freckles. The treatment used to repair sun damage and age spots is a form of laser skin rejuvenation. A concentrated laser beam will be used to treat the affected areas of your skin. Like a micropeel, desired results will most likely be seen after only one treatment; however the normal aging process of the skin may cause age spots to return. This can be remedied by undergoing treatments every 6-18 months.
