ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: FACIAL
Laser Collagen Replenishment
This FDA approved non-ablative laser system treatment
is used for non-invasive wrinkle reduction and because
it does not wound the surface of the skin, it does not
require general or local anesthesia and effectively
eliminates the need for post treatment care.
How it Works
The laser light targets the tissue under the skin
surface stimulating new collagen growth. This new collagen
growth fills in the depression under the wrinkle, reducing
the crease in the wrinkle surface.
To achieve maximum results from the laser, Physicians
often recommend an antiaging skin care regimen starting
two months prior to laser treatment. This uses products
that contain ingredients such as Vitamin A,E,C, Glycolic
Acids, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, etc.
Treatments take 10 -30 minutes, depending upon the
area and number of wrinkles to be treated. There is
no pain associated with this treatment, although some
patients may feel a slight warming sensation.
- Continue skin care routine used in Pre Treatment
- Makeup or moisturizer may be applied immediately
after treatment and patients are able to return to
their normal activities including work or sports.
- There is no need to stay out of the sun.
The full response from a single treatment builds collagen
gradually to a maximum benefit appearance at 60 to 90
