Laser Skin Enhancement

Laser Skin Enhancement is a new approach to skin rejuvenation for aging and sun damaged skin. It prevents the early signs of aging and improves tone, texture and radiance. It is used as part of a skin care routine for maintenance of young, fresh, glowing skin or as a maintenance treatment to extend the results of more aggressive laser treatments. It is a sophisticated laser treatment with minimal downtime, fast recovery and natural-looking results.

What is Laser Skin Enhancement?

It is a safe, effective, gentle laser that treats fractions of the skin at a time so there is minimal downtime. Skin is smoother, fresher, and more radiant, with improved tone and texture. Since it stimulates collagen, it helps prevent the signs of aging. It is for those who would like the next step up from peels, microdermabrasion and IPL, but are not yet ready for a more aggressive laser treatment such as ablative or non-ablative laser resurfacing. It can also be used as a maintenance treatment after the more aggressive lasers or radio frequency skin tightening. It is a great way to maintain young-looking skin for men and women and is safe for all skin types.

How Does Laser Skin Enhancement Work?

This laser delivers millions of microscopic treatment zones to refresh your skin from the inside out. It stimulates the body’s own natural production of new collagen in the dermis and eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells on the skin’s surface. It replaces damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking skin. Since it is a mild treatment, 4 to 6 treatments, 2 to 3 weeks apart are necessary to see the full effect. Maintenance treatments can be done every few months.

What Does the Laser Skin Enhancement Treat?

It smoothes fine lines and wrinkles on the face, including around the eyes. It reduces sun damage, improves texture and tone on the face, neck, chest, back, forearms and hands, and reduces pore size. Laser Skin Enhancement slows the appearance of aging and results in smooth, fresh, healthy skin and a renewed sense of confidence.

How is the Procedure Done?

A topical anesthetic cream is applied and then several passes are done over the treatment area. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is very well-tolerated. If there is a history of cold sores (herpes simplex), an oral antiviral medication is started.

What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Enhancement?

  • Men and women of all ages and all skin types can have treatment.
  • It is a less invasive treatment with minimal downtime.
  • It is part of a preventative skin care routine.
  • It prevents and corrects the signs of aging.
  • It maintains the look, texture and tone of the skin.
  • It reduces pore size.
  • It can be used as a treatment on its own or as a maintenance treatment for other more aggressive procedures.

At What Age Can Treatments Start?

The earlier you start taking care of your skin, the better you can prevent the signs of aging. People in their 20’s are looking for treatments to take control of the aging process and Laser Skin Enhancement is perfect to refresh the skin. When used together with sun protection and anti-aging products at home, your skin will maintain its youthful appearance.

How Will I Look After the Treatment?

The skin may be puffy and pink for less than a day, and feel rough for 4 days, but no one will notice. Makeup can be applied immediately after the treatment and men can continue to shave. Most patients return to their routine activities immediately. Results are seen within a few days and will last for months.

What Results Will I See?

  • Radiant, glowing skin
  • Soft, smooth, fresh skin
  • Reduction in the appearance of pores
  • Improved tone and texture
  • Younger, healthier-looking skin
  • Clear and radiant skin

Are There Any Side Effects?

Although very rare, the potential side effects include redness, swelling, blistering, scarring, pigmentary changes, reactivation of cold sores (herpes simplex), and a flare in acne.

Can Laser Skin Enhancement Be Used Together With Other Procedures?

Definitely! If spider veins are present, they can be treated with intense pulsed light. If there is extensive sun damage, photodynamic therapy can be used. Neuromodulators treat dynamic wrinkles and fillers plump up deep creases. Microdermabrasion and light chemical peels can be performed for maintenance treatment and microneedling, mesoinfusion, ablative or non-ablative laser resurfacing for a more aggressive treatment. Anti-aging products should be used at home and daily sunscreen.
