Want to Refresh with Laser Treatment? Now is the Time!

Aging occurs in the cells of the skin and other parts of the body. However, where we tend to see biological changes first is in our skin. The uppermost layers of skin tissue, the dermis and epidermis, begin to display concerns such as spots, roughness, fine lines, and laxity, all of which are related to cellular changes such as a slow-down in collagen production. We used to wait until the indications of aging were bad enough before treating them with facial cosmetic surgery. Not anymore. Now, adults of all ages are turning to laser treatments to support aging skin naturally.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Several laser treatments have been developed in recent years. The term laser skin resurfacing may be used somewhat as a blanket to describe all of them. But there are differences between the various laser techniques used today. Here, we want to focus on true laser skin resurfacing and what it can do for you.

The point of laser skin resurfacing is to remove the damaged skin of the epidermis. Doing this, the treatment paves the way for tissue regeneration at a deeper level. The results of laser skin resurfacing tend to be pretty remarkable due to the extensive collagen remodeling that takes place in response to controlled tissue damage. While resurfacing can achieve significant results, it is gentle enough for patients to combine this technique with others, like Botox or dermal fillers for deeper lines and creases.

Just as different laser devices are used for a wide range of problems, various devices are used for the purpose of laser skin resurfacing, as well. Each may use a particular wavelength or strength of energy based on the problems being addressed as well as skin type and tone. Some resurfacing techniques are fully ablative, covering the entire surface of the epidermis, while others emit light in a fractional grid-like pattern. The varying modalities allow us to meet each patient’s needs and preferences for results and downtime.

Why Now is a Great Time for Laser Treatments

There are two reasons to consider laser skin resurfacing or any other type of laser treatment right now. One is that we all like to look and feel our best for those holiday photos. Laser treatment can brighten and revive the appearance of your skin with little to no downtime whatsoever.

Laser treatments can address:

  • Dark patches of skin
  • Broken blood vessels and visible capillaries
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Large pore size
  • Deeper wrinkles and creases
  • Unwanted hair
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Acne scars

Another reason laser treatment is ideal for the winter months is that doctors recommend that patients avoid sun exposure after laser resurfacing. With the temperatures dropping, there’s no time like the present to cozy up to a warm fire while your skin regenerates itself after laser treatment.

It’s OK, Think of Yourself This Season

We’re on the brink of a new season, the season of the year that millions of people have been looking forward to for months. As the holidays grow nearer by the day, you may be finding yourself both excited about what is to come and simultaneously concerned about how you will look your best during one of the busiest times of the year. We’ve got you covered and want to offer a few suggestions. If you act now rather than wait until the week of your holiday gatherings, you might accomplish more in terms of beauty than you had imagined you could.

Add the Pop That Makes a Difference

The face and body change in significant ways as we age. The face tends to go first. On the face, the eyes tend to go first. This is because the skin and subcutaneous tissue around the eyes are quite delicate. Here, the bony structure also degrades over time. As if this weren’t notable enough, there is also something about the eyes location on the face that makes them the first thing people tend to notice. Knowing this, you have the chance to add the pop your eyes could use to make your face look youthful and exuberant this holiday season.

Eyelid rejuvenation can be achieved in several ways. For the fastest results, patients may choose injectables. Here:

  • Botox and other neuromodulators can smooth frown lines.
  • Neuromodulators work on the muscles beneath the skin. As such, Botox and other products are also ideal for gently lifting sagging brows.
  • Dermal fillers add volume under the eyes to reduce dark circles and hollows.
  • Dermal fillers can also disguise undereye bags when placed into the transition space between the cheek and the lower eyelid.

Give the Skin an Overall Boost

If you have attended to your skin well and have yet to notice troubling signs of aging like undereye bags and drooping eyebrows, you can boost your beauty this holiday season by scheduling a treatment that will bring out your skin’s radiance.

  • Microneedling is a quick treatment that stimulates circulation and collagen remodeling. Results include an immediate rush of radiance and smoothness.
  • Laser treatments like BBL act on dark spots and roughness, acne, and more.

We’d love to usher you into this holiday season looking and feeling your best. To schedule your treatment in our Denver office, call (303) 839-1616.
