Laser Facial Rejuvenation
What does the treatment involve?Light emitted from the hand piece safely passes through the outermost layers of skin in search of the targeted vascular or pigmented lesions. Without damaging the surrounding skin, the laser's intense light is absorbed by the targeted lesion. The light energy is then converted to heat and this initiates the process of eliminating the lesion. The treated lesions will gradually fade or diminish. In many cases, smaller vessels or pigmentation spots are eliminated in 1 to 2 treatments. Medium or larger vessels may take additional treatments.
Laser treatment can be utilized for small facial areas or for the entire face. Recently, full-face treatments have become increasingly popular. Many people suffer from larger broken capillaries on their nose and cheeks and will have medium and smaller vessels on other facial areas. A full-face treatment will improve the overall facial appearance by creating a more uniform skin color and by smoothing the texture of the skin.
The hand piece quickly advances across the skin delivering pulses to the treatment site. A full-face treatment typically lasts anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes. Smaller areas, such as the nose, can be treated in 15 minutes. In some cases a topical anesthetic cream is first applied to numb the treatment area. For a short period of time following treatment, a cold compress may be applied to soothe the possible appearance of slight swelling or redness of the skin. Treatments on the face, chest, neck, hands, legs and abdomen are all done safely and quickly with laser technology.
Men and women of all ages are currently seeking better alternatives to maintaining healthy, youthful skin.
