ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: FACIAL

Other Exfoliation Procedures

 

Coblation

Coblation, the shortened name for ‘cold ablation’ is used for very specific areas of the skin, which gives the advantage of minimising any damage to other areas. It uses saline (salt water), delivered to the skin through which a cool electric current is passed. This causes a reaction, which heats and vaporizes the top shallow layer of skin.

 

Radiofrequency Resurfacing

NARF resurfacing is a new technique using low radiofrequency energy to resurface the skin. Although in preliminary stages, research indicates that this procedure may eventually be as effective as laser surgery in reducing severe wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, with minimal pain and a shorter recovery time. Resulting tighter facial skin is apparent within 12 weeks.

 

Intense Pulsed Light

Intense pulsed light [IPL] uses filters to selectively deliver wavelengths of light to treat a number of photo-aging [sun damaged] skin problems. Such damage occurs at various levels of the skin, depending upon the type and duration of exposure. One of the key benefits of IPL, is that unlike laser light, which uses one color wave-length to treat one level of the skin, IPL starts with a full spectrum of light and then allows the physician to selectively block off specific wave lengths depending on the level of damage, hence how shallow or deep the procedure should go.

A typical treatment program includes four to six, 20 minute treatments performed over a four-month period. Results tend to be long-term.
