Can a Laser treatments help? The most obvious manifestations of aging and sun damaged skin are pigmented lesions, wrinkles, and visible facial vessels. In addition, rosacea, solar lentigines, seborrheic keratoses, and actinic keratoses are also all visible signs of aging and sun damaged skin. Many people have an increase in pore size and their skin texture becomes more rough and uneven. Aging and sun damage create a loss of elasticity in the skin, resulting in wrinkling of the face and neck. Luckily, these conditions can be alleviated with laser skin treatment.

Fractional Laser Treatments help to:

  •  Reduce fine lines and wrinkles around and under the eyes,across the cheeks,around the mouth and lips, and across the forehead.
  •  Tighten the skin on the face and neck
  •  Lessen the appearance of scarring from acne and trauma
  •  Reduce age spots
  •  Renew overall skin tone and texture
  •  Rejuvenate and improve sun damaged skin

How Laser Skin Treatment Works

Laser treatments focus specifically on addressing these common problems are called “photofacial,” “resurfacing,” or “skin rejuvenation” treatments. There are a variety of people from doctors to spas, offering all types of treatments using a variety of methods and machines, including topical acids, intense pulsed light (IPL), infrared (IR), tissue freezing devices, and lasers. Most of these methods have major limits on the depth of treatment, and the final results from each method depend a great deal on the condition of the skin at the start. Significant sun damaged and wrinkled skin requires multiple or a “stronger” treatment.

Lasers have a long history and give excellent results. Decreasing or eliminating the above conditions with a laser can give many patients a significant change in their appearance. Also, the laser “strength” or level of laser skin treatment is easily controlled, so that a patient can receive either a “light laserabrasion” treatment, with only 2-3 days for healing, or a more significant treatment with 4-7 days for healing.

To obtain maximum results for severe sun damage and wrinkles it might be necessary to have more than one laser skin treatment spaced 3-6 months apart, but even with one laser skin treatment, many patients can attain excellent results.  

“Fractional” lasers are designed to treat not only the common superficial skin problems, but to stimulate the collagen and to treat the deeper tissues as well, leading to a refreshed and smoother skin surface. The old CO2 lasers had a “solid” laser beam, and after an old laser treatment it often took weeks to heal and for the redness to resolve. The “fractional” lasers break up the laser beam into small dots, leaving healthy tissues between the dots.  Most treated areas are healed in 4-6 days, and the redness is gone in 7-14 days. Once healed, the redness can be covered with makeup.

The laser rejuvenation can be done alone or at the same time as a Timeless Lift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, or other surgery.
