The holiday season is on its way, and that means holiday parties, pictures with friends and family, and getting together with people you may not have seen since last year. As much fun as these traditions are every year, they’re even better if you don’t feel self-conscious about your appearance for all of those parties and pictures.
If you’d like to give your look a boost for this holiday season, especially if your aim is to reduce signs of aging, laser treatments may be able to help. Our team at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center has the laser procedures that can give you the gift of a younger look this year.
Fractionated CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
While we offer a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments, fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing is our most comprehensive option. It improves wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and even sagging skin as well as other cosmetic concerns like poor skin texture and acne scars.
During fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing, we use an advanced type of laser that precisely removes damaged surface skin in an even arrangement of small spots. This creates exceptional skin rejuvenation throughout your face, giving you an overall brighter and younger look.
Keep in mind that it does take time for your skin to heal after this treatment. If you want your results to look their best by the holidays, it’s best to schedule your procedure as soon as possible.
Micro Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing
If you like the idea of treating several signs of aging with one treatment but you don’t want the recovery time of fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing, our micro fractionated CO2 resurfacing may be the perfect fit. Also called a micro laser peel, this treatment is essentially a milder version of fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
The effects of this treatment are similar to the results of a chemical peel because it lightly removes aged surface skin. It also stimulates your natural collagen production, giving you the combined effect of fewer fine lines and wrinkles, firmer skin, and smoother skin texture. All of this comes with significantly less recovery time than fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing. In fact, it has earned the nickname of the “weekend peel” because if you schedule your treatment for a Thursday or Friday, you’ll likely be healed enough to return to work on Monday with little or no signs of the treatment.
Both fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing and micro fractionated laser resurfacing use ablative lasers, which means that they remove precise areas of surface skin. Photo rejuvenation, however, is unique because it is non-ablative, so there is no skin removal. Instead, this procedure sends pulses of laser light deeper into your skin.
As a result, photo rejuvenation gradually increases your collagen production over time, leading to fewer wrinkles and fine lines as well as firmer, more lifted skin. Photo rejuvenation can also lighten age spots and treat similar skin blemishes.
While there is generally no recovery time needed after photo rejuvenation, you will get better results from a series of up to six treatments. To maximize your results by the time the winter holidays arrive now is the time to start.
