It seems that non-surgical cosmetic procedures are moving towards lasers. Nowadays, it is possible to get fast, effective results from advancements in laser technology. If we no longer want to shave, we can opt for laser hair removal. If we are concerned about unsightly leg veins, there’s a laser for that, too. Recently, facial treatments have started to incorporate more technology. Specifically, the new wave of the “laser facial” has gained a large following. So you may ask, what exactly is a laser facial?
One of the most effective anti-aging treatments available with little to no downtime is the Laser Genesis treatment. Laser Genesis uses non-invasive laser technology to target wrinkles, large pores, uneven texture, redness and scars. The treatment works by heating the upper dermis in order to stimulate collagen production. The laser combats redness by generating additional heat in dilated capillaries. It can improve the appearance of scars and uneven texture by helping reorganize collagen. Many patients report that the treatment is comfortable and experience a warming sensation. It normally takes about 6 treatments to see optimum results but improvement is generally noticed after just one treatment.
For patients who want to target uneven skin tone and photo damage at the same time, they can opt to have a “Two Dimensional” Laser Facial. This incorporates Laser Genesis with the Limelight Photo Facial, a treatment that uses intense pulse light (IPL) to eliminate brown spots, skin redness and telangiectasia (small veins). For patients who want maximum results with little to no downtime, the Two Dimensional facial is a great option. A series of 6 treatments is recommended for best results, and the effects of Laser Genesis are enhanced by the Lime Light Photo Facial and vice-versa; the benefits are two-fold.
The Two Dimensional laser facial can be done in between other cosmetic procedures as it is non-invasive and will aid in enhancing overall results. It is important to find an experienced laser technician to perform these treatments for safety and effectiveness.
