Fall is so close, you can practically smell those pumpkin spice lattes wafting out from your favorite coffee shop. As the weather cools down, now is the perfect time to consider a cosmetic laser treatment, mainly due to the fact that for the majority of us, our sun exposure dramatically decreases until next Spring, making it the optimal time to recover from a laser procedure. At Visage Skin Care Center, a division of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, we now offer a variety of laser treatments to rejuvenate and enhance your appearance with minimal discomfort and downtime. Check out this list of laser treatment options waiting for you this season.
Fractionated Skin (Halo Hybrid) Skin Resurfacing
The Halo Laser Treatment with the Sciton Laser is truly one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the complexion, while minimizing a host of skin concerns. At Visage Skin Care Center, we use the innovative Halo laser for this treatment, which combines ablative and non-ablative treatments into a single procedure for the best possible results. This state of art unique device allows for customization of treatment for each patient that in the past was never possible. What this means is a 100% consistently delivered depth and area of the laser treatment which stimulates true new collagen in your skin resulting in a smoother, more youthful look. Halo laser treatments can be performed in less than one hour and most patients return to regular activities within days of the treatment.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser peels are the latest trend in skin rejuvenation treatments that offer excellent results with minimal discomfort and downtime. Laser peels with the Sciton Laser now surpasses what could be achieved with light and medium depth peels of the past. Why? Again, because it’s technology allows for precise depth of treatment, thus giving more predictable healing times and most importantly results.
Laser peels are a treatment that patients of ALL ages and skin types can benefit from. A good example is no matter how much we brush and floss our teeth, we still need to go to the dental hygienist every six months for a complete cleaning. The same is true with your skin: no matter what your home skin care and sun block regimen is, at a minimum you will need a Laser peel every 6 months to keep your skin at its best! The staff at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery offers two different types of laser peels that allow us to tailor your treatment to your specific needs:
MicroLaserPeel – This peel removes outer skin layers to reveal softer, smoother skin underneath. The MicroLaserPeel is a good choice for treating fine lines, hyperpigmentation, shallow scarring and sun damage.
NanoLaserPeel – This superficial peel offers a quick treatment option for skin rejuvenation without a crimp in your daily routine. The NanoLaserPeel is effective in reviving tired skin, reversing some types of sun damage and restoring a consistent texture and tone to the skin.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most effective method of permanent hair reduction on the market today. The procedure delivers laser energy into the hair follicles, damaging the follicles so current hair falls out and future hair will have difficulty growing. This procedure can be used on unwanted facial and body hair and usually requires a series of treatment sessions to achieve desired results. Treatment times vary widely from a few minutes to an hour or more, based on the size of the treatment area.
Laser treatments typically require patients to protect their skin from the sun for a number of weeks before and after the procedure. As the temperatures begin to cool down this time of year, fall becomes the perfect time to have these laser treatments done without worry over sun exposure.
