Which Laser Treatment is Right for You?
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
Facial rejuvenation has been a topic of interest for many years. At some point, most people decide that they need to do something to manage the cosmetic implications of growing older. Historically, the way this was accomplished was through facelift surgery. Today, we’ve to a myriad of alternatives. In addition to surgical facelifts, patients can choose to correct specific concerns with localized procedures like a brow lift or blepharoplasty. Also, in many cases, surgery is avoided altogether.
In our Layton and Draper offices, laser and light treatments are commonly performed to help our patients address aging in their own unique way. You may have heard of recently approved devices as they became available. You may have wondered if a particular treatment would be good for your skin. With new devices being developed all the time, we can see how choosing one can be difficult. Here, we discuss how you can take confident steps forward in your treatment choices.
Look First at the Problem
To begin knowing which devices to spend time on and which to pass over quickly, the first suggestion we offer is to consider what concerns you about your skin. Has years of sunning caused hyperpigmentation on your face, neck, and chest? Is it a shaving routine that’s got you bogged down? Or has the loss of collagen in your skin left you with sagging jowls and flattened cheeks? By understanding your concerns first, you have a direction in which to go.
Not sure exactly where your cosmetic concerns originate? That’s OK. When you consult with one of our experienced providers, you benefit from a thorough examination of your skin and underlying tissue. Our team understands the science of aging. Our knowledge, combined with our experience, enables us to make informed recommendations for surgical as well as nonsurgical options.
Common Laser and Light Treatments
Some of the modalities that provide excellent cosmetic results include:
- Venus Viva is a skin resurfacing technique that combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan technology. This treatment provides selective dermal heating that stimulates collagen production for tighter, smoother, brighter, healthier skin.
- Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing corrects skin conditions including wrinkles, scars, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface, this technique achieves maximum results with minimal side effects.
- IPL FotoFacial treatments are performed for the correction of sun damage. Problems like hyperpigmentation, rough texture and even acne can improve with a series of 20-minute treatments.
