We all have things we don’t love about our bodies. The good news is, there are now quite a few ways we can go about getting smoother, younger-looking skin.
Laser rejuvenation works simultaneously to repair collagen in the dermis – the deepest layer of your skin – while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis – top layer of your skin.
The Laser Genesis procedure safely and discretely treats fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, redness and scars using non-invasive laser technology. Treatments are performed without the need for any topical anesthetics, and the process has even been described as downright relaxing. You will experience a gentle warming sensation as the Cutera laser passes back and forth over your skin. The heat stimulates the re-growth of collagen and the dilation of capillaries reduces redness of the skin. After each treatment, you can expect to see subtle yet consistent results, with no unwanted side-effects. When the procedure is over, you can immediately return to your normal activities. Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore your skin’ s youthful glow by smoothing out wrinkles and uneven texture caused by aging, sun damage or scarring.
Another type of laser rejuvenation therapy is Laser Limelight, which is exceptionally effective for treating skin redness, facial veins, and skin discoloration, such as age spots. Laser limelight can be used on the face, chest, hands and arms and, like with Laser Genesis, does not require the use of anesthetics or pain medications. The spots that are treated with the laser will begin to darken immediately following the procedure, and will flake off within one to two weeks. Generally only one to three treatments are required for the desired results, although excessively damaged skin may require more treatments.
Juvederm is a gel that is injected into lines and wrinkles in the face, particularly those around the mouth, to restore volume to the skin. As we age, our skin loses a natural protein called hyaluronic acid; Juvederm simply injects the substance back into our skin to help our faces retain their shape. Because it is a natural protein, there is no reason to be concerned about how your body will react to it. It is safe and it causes minimal bruising and swelling after the injection. Juvederm is gradually absorbed by the body over time and lasts for up to one year.
Botox is made of a very diluted form of a toxin called botulism, which has been used in medicine for 35 years. It is an injection that is mostly used for lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Aside from filling in existing wrinkles, Botox also helps to prevent the creation of new wrinkles and/or the deepening of wrinkles you already have. Botox is injected into the small muscles in your face, preventing them from squeezing as hard as they ordinarily would, and therefore not creating wrinkles to begin with. If crows’ feet and brow creases are caught early enough, Botox can remove them altogether. Although Botox is one of the most effective injectables, can be done within minutes and is very low-risk, it only lasts for three to four months.
