What Can I Do to Make My Skin Color and Texture Stay Youthful?
As you age, you may notice that your skin texture is rougher than it used to be in your younger years. You may also face discoloration that takes away from the beauty of your skin. The good news is that there are effective ways you can make your skin texture and color look more youthful and stay that way.
One option is the Clear + Brilliant Laser, which stimulates the uppermost layers of your skin and improves its appearance without a lengthy recovery period. Another option is the IPL Photofacial, which emits light energy and targets unwanted pigmentation in your skin. Keep reading to learn more about these revolutionary treatments.
Using fractional laser technology, the Clear + Brilliant laser treats discoloration, rough skin, and other signs of aging. Before the treatment, your face will be treated with a topical numbing cream so that you are as comfortable as possible. Our experienced laser nurse, Chris Dyer, will then gently glide the laser over your skin and deliver columns of light energy, which create microscopic injuries zones that are then replaced with new, rejuvenated skin.
One Clear + Brilliant laser treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. While you may experience mild side effects like redness, tenderness, or subtle swelling, these typically fade quickly so you can resume your daily activities right away. If you’d like optimal results, we recommend you undergo a series of three to six treatments or combine this laser treatment with another anti-aging skincare treatment. Sun protection is imperative before and after each treatment.
Benefits of the Clear + Brilliant Laser
The Clear + Brilliant laser offers a number of benefits. First and foremost, it is a minimally invasive treatment that does not involve any needles, or downtime. You can receive it during your lunch break and return to work immediately.
In addition, the Clear + Brilliant laser can enhance your elasticity, improve your skin texture, clarify your complexion, minimize the appearance of your pores, and reduce any pigment irregularities you may have. These improvements stall and even reverse the aging process by preventing the typical age and sun related reduction in collagen generation.
How the IPL Photofacial Works
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a treatment that targets a variety of issues including brown spots, redness, sun damage and dull texture. During a treatment, our experienced laser nurse, Chris Dyer, will use a state of the art Harmony IPL device to deliver light energy into your skin. Pigment and broken capillaries absorb the various wavelengths of light, and are then absorbed or subtly sloughed off over days. After a series of treatments, more and more unwanted splotches, patches, dots and vessels disappear leaving a more luminous and even skin tone.
Benefits of the IPL Photofacial
IPL Photofacial treatments do not involve any downtime. Tinted sunscreen or makeup can be applied immediately. On the day of treatment, you’re free to resume your daily activities as long as you protect from the sun. Sun protection is imperative before and after each treatment. Studies have shown results last many years particularly if you have 1 or 2 photofacials each year to continue to stall the aging process and remove any new brown spots that form with time.
Dr. Krauss has been my dermatologist for nearly two decades. Her level of knowledge in the most up to date cosmetic procedures is unsurpassed. I would not trust my skin care in the hands of another professional. My three young adults are patients of Dr. Wise and are just as satisfied.
Highly recommend Krauss Dermatology.
