Patients with mild acne scars, fine lines & wrinkles, irregular texture and even sun-induced “blotchiness” or redness can benefit from laser skin resurfacing. These treatments are safely performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
Gone are the days of the recent trend that emerged where appointments were scheduled on a Thursday afternoon for an ablative procedure and afterwards, patients essentially “hid” in their house over the weekend to heal from the treatment and emerged on Monday with a glowing appearance. You can now experience laser skin resurfacing to remove years of damage in as little as one quick treatment.
After a consultation to discuss your concerns, a treatment plan will be customized to address your individual concerns. The ClearLift laser is used to deliver a controlled amount of heat to the area being treated. The laser acts to stimulate collagen production which in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by tightening the skin. Because the laser is targeting the tissue below the surface, there is no need for any numbing cream prior to the treatment. In fact, most patients express that the entire procedure is extremely relaxing. Each session lasts anywhere from 15 minutes – 60 minutes. While the effects are seen immediately, multiple sessions are recommended to maintain the results.
