Skin that feels as good as it looks can profoundly improve your self-esteem and confidence. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to retain healthy, glowing skin as we age. Both men and women seek skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing to turn back the hands of time. Proudly, RIVKIN Aesthetics uses the latest technology and techniques in laser skin therapy to ensure our patients get effective results without compromising safety and comfort.
What is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers are used in countless healthcare industries as a precise and less-invasive means of treatment. When it comes to skin rejuvenation, we use laser technology to treat and revitalize specific skin cells without harming surrounding tissue.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
On a more scientific level, the intense energy of targeted lasers selectively destroys cells of varying colors or water content. In turn, we can use lasers to remove unwanted wrinkles, sunspots, hair and moles. Increasing the depth of penetration also stimulates collagen production, which tones and tightens the skin from within. Most laser treatments last about one hour.
What Can Laser Resurfacing Do for Me?
Laser resurfacing can be used for a wide variety of skin imperfections. In general, laser resurfacing can address large pores, discoloration/pigmentation, sagging skin as well as lines or wrinkles (especially around the eyes and mouth). Patients report an overall improvement in the youthfulness of their complexion after laser resurfacing.
Why Choose a Physician for Laser Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing can be most effective treatments to improve aged skin. However, it is critical that you choose a board-certified physician to perform your treatments. For the safest and most rewarding results, laser resurfacing should be done by someone who has training, experience and knowledge of the interaction between advanced lasers and delicate skin tissue.
Is Laser Skin Treatment Safe?
Patients have enjoyed the benefits of laser therapy in cosmetic skin rejuvenation for the face and body for over two decades. When compared to plastic surgery, laser treatments are much less invasive with minimal risk. Laser therapy have been proven safe and effective when administered by highly trained, licensed professionals. The most important safety factor of any laser treatment is the skill and expertise of the one who is administering it.
What Can I Expect After Laser Treatment?
Patients should expect some minimal downtime after laser skin resurfacing. Since the top layer of skin is removed with treatment, the skin tends to be red and crusty for a few days. Redness will gradually diminish after about two weeks. This is a small sacrifice of downtime compared to the long-term, youthful results that laser skin resurfacing delivers in just a 60 minute, non-surgical procedure.
