Turning Back the Clock without Plastic Surgery
To turn back the clock, it’s not always necessary to go under the knife for extensive procedures. Though effective with constantly improving technology, some may feel that undergoing plastic surgery is not something they are ready for. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we offer many effective options for patients who want in on anti-aging without drastic deviations from their current look or long downtime. Rather, procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Erbium laser resurfacing, Latisse, and micro laser peels provide subtle changes that keep people guessing where you got your youthful glow.
Latisse for Eyelashes: As we age, our eyes become less bright and our eyelashes more sparse due to hair generally losing width and strength. The only FDA approved prescription treatment effective for promoting the growth of eyelashes is Latisse®, which more than doubles lash fullness in 16 weeks. To use Latisse®, you simply apply it to your upper eyelids each night after your normal bedtime routine. In as little as four weeks, you can begin to see longer, thicker and darker lashes appear.
Chemical Peels & Laser Resurfacing: Wrinkles, spots, and uneven skin patches can give away our age almost instantaneously. While we offer great fillers such as Botox® and Dysport®, we also perform procedures that improve overall skin tone and texture. Micro laser peels use CO2 fractionated laser technology to remove the outermost layers of skin on neck, chest, face, and/or hands. Essentially, a micro laser peel is a step between microdermabrasion and heavier chemical peels. Micro laser peels differ in that they use gentle laser light technology. The laser removes the top layers of skin while stimulating the body to naturally produce collagen, essential to reconstructing the skin to promote elasticity and smoother texture. Another anti-aging laser option is Erbium laser resurfacing, which treats brown spots, mild facial wrinkles and overall textural imperfections by stimulating collagen production in a less penetrating way than CO2 laser resurfacing.
In-Between Treatments for Aging: For patients with fewer visible signs of aging, both mild chemical peels and microdermabrasion are great options. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the top layer of dead skin, buffing it away with a fine-grained polishing wand and promoting the renewal of the outer layer. Mild chemical peels rejuvenate lifeless skin by using a combination of chemicals to promote the peeling off of dead skin. During a skin care analysis and pre-treatment consultation, a trained provider can determine whether a micro laser peel, microdermabrasion, or chemical peel is the best treatment to suit your needs.
