As we age we often see creases and lines form on our face and around our eyes. There are many factors that cause the formation of wrinkles but many include age, lifestyle choices, sun exposure, and genetics. As we age our skin becomes thinner and our collagen & elastin production slows, forming these unwanted lines on our face and body.
Younger looking skin is easier than you think with laser skin resurfacing. In just one treatment you can have a more youthful looking appearance with improved tone and texture of your skin. Achieve long lasting results without the pain or side effects associated with a more invasive surgery. Best of all, you will still look like you – only better.
CO2 delivers a series of fractional laser energy microbeams into the skin that extends through the epidermis into the dermis. These energy beams penetrate the skin and remove old and damaged skin cells. After the treatment, the body will naturally build new healthy cells to take the place of the cells that have been cleared away. In addition, the laser stimulates the production of new collagen deep within your skin, giving you a more youthful-looking appearance!
Laser wrinkle removal offers an easier and more comfortable alternative to invasive surgical procedures for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles on the face, including the deep lines that form around the eyes and mouth. In as little as one treatment, results are achieved that can rival results if a traditional facelift at a fraction of the cost or downtime.
Pulses of energy are delivered deep into the skin, targeting pigment and stimulating collagen for a smoother and more even appearance. We use an ablative fractional laser that offers an easier and more comfortable alternative to invasive surgical procedures for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles on the face, including the deep lines that form around the eyes and mouth. In as little as one treatment, results are achieved that can rival results if a traditional facelift at a fraction of the cost or downtime.
Fractora delivers targeted bipolar radiofrequency energy to various selectable depths in the skin. Fractora compares to the results of fractional CO2 without the associated downtime, prolonged redness, and pigmentation drawbacks. Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with customizable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (rhytids and tightening). We are able to select between variable depths, densities and energy levels for results that were previously unattainable without excisional surgery.
We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your expectations and needs:
The ideal candidate has realistic expectations for the procedure, is in good medical health, can commit to the recovery time, is aware of the risks involved, and has moderate to severe wrinkle lines. The only way to know for sure if skin resurfacing and/or wrinkle treatment is right for you is to speak with our staff and schedule a consultation.
Just like the aging process itself, this varies from person to person. However, if you take steps to protect and preserve your freshly laser rejuvenated skin — such as using SPF sunscreen, facial cleansers and creams – the results will last longer.
You and the laser technician will carefully determine the best course of treatment based on your cosmetic and downtime expectations. Typically, only one treatment is needed for desired results. However, since treatments can be adjusted to your cosmetic and downtime expectations, you may opt for two or three “lighter” sessions with minimal downtime. Or if you’re able to take a longer downtime, experience dramatic results in just one treatment!
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm and appear to be sunburned. Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new ones. After a few days, you will notice a more even skin tone, smoother skin texture, and healthier-looking skin. You may see some redness and swelling which is completely normal. Over time, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin. You may be asked to avoid sun exposure for a period of time. Treatments are adjustable so downtime will depend on the treatment you receive.
Pricing varies based on body and skin types along with combined procedures performed. Please call or schedule a consultation for more information.
