REVITALIZE YOUR SKIN
As we age, our skin undergoes a series of transformations that can leave us longing for our youth’s radiant and youthful complexion. Advancements in skincare technology have paved the way for innovative laser treatments that offer promising solutions for rejuvenating the skin and restoring its youthful glow.
With so many options available for laser treatments, how do you know which one is right for you? Here are some of the top laser treatments on the market right now. Remember! Always visit a qualified practitioner and talk to your doctor before undergoing any type of laser treatment.
Broad Band Light (BBL)
The Broad Band Light treatment can be performed on all body areas, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. BBL uses a broad spectrum of light that can be filtered in several ways to treat different conditions. The device applies light flashes to the skin, which penetrates to damage the pigment, tissue, or blood vessels. Your body will work to repair the damage, reducing the appearance of discoloration or wrinkles.
Best for: sun and age spots, redness, rosacea, wrinkles, and eliminating fine vessels.
Morpheus 8 utilizes gold microneedles to penetrate the skin and radiofrequency waves to emit heat that reaches deeper skin layers and melts fat. This process stimulates collagen production, causing underlying fat and skin to tighten. Some benefits of the laser include tighter skin, reducing under-eye bags, minimizing crow’s feet around eyes and lip lines, reducing pores, and improving skin texture with a reduction of wrinkles, acne scars, and fine lines.
Best for: fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, skin tightening, and pore reduction.
The first hybrid fractional laser, HALO, combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to address multiple levels of skin concerns on all skin types. These wavelengths provide both short-term and long-term benefits. By creating small thermal injuries in the skin, new, healthy skin is produced.
Best for: fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, dark spots, scar tissue, pigmented lesions, and enlarged pores.
Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin while the tip of the laser vibrates and cools the surface to help aid in comfort. The new collagen growth tightens the skin over time. This laser provides smoother, tighter skin after just one treatment, with continued improvement for up to six months treating wrinkles and loose skin on the face, around the eyes, and on the body.
Best for: wrinkles, loose skin, and skin tightening.
Moxi is a non-ablative 1927nm wavelength that targets water within cells to work with the body’s natural healing processes for a gentle treatment with little-to-no downtime. Moxi comfortably delivers non-ablative laser energy to correct the initial signs of sun damage and aging—no matter the season or skin type—for a glowing and clear complexion.
Best for: pigmentation, sun damage, uneven skin tone, textured skin, and signs of aging.
C02 Laser Resurfacing
The Cynosure Smartskin CO2 laser treatment evens skin tone and texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scars, age spots, and much more. With Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing, the laser removes only a part of your skin’s surface. Faster healing time and fewer complications result from leaving part of the skin undamaged to rejuvenate the skin’s surface.
Best for: fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, skin tone and texture.
Fraxel Repair works at a cellular level in the skin to produce natural, long-lasting benefits. The device creates microchannels in the dermal layers at a prescribed depth to address the patient’s specific concerns and goals. These controlled injuries stimulate the body’s regenerative process, including cell renewal and collagen production.
Best for: fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and sun damage.
