Be pro-active: Restore your skin with Laser Skin Resurfacing ... (Because, of course, you don't want to look any older!)

Skin Laser Resurfacing with either Fractional CO2 or Ematrix Sublative Laser is ideal when you want to tighten and soften wrinkles on your face.

Laser Treatments are the only way to stimulate collagen to stay/look younger

Are you thinking about Laser Skin Resurfacing ? If you're in the 30-60+ age group you're probably seeing the signs of aging on your face.  Fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots from too much sun exposure, roughness of skin, and as you age, sagging in the jowl area - the result? The aging process is starting to show on your face.

If your in the younger crowd your looking to maintain your skin and keep the collagen stimulated.  For those a little older, facial surgery is an option but alot of people find they're not ready for a surgical procedure.    Laser resurfacing with Fractional CO2 gives you the next best thing to surgery.  Whether you'd like to maintain or restore your face we can help.  And, better yet, fractional technology is safer, and has less downtime than the traditional CO2 from years ago.

Fractional CO2 repairs wrinkles, sun-damage, enlarged pores, texture and tightening of your skin. In addition, patients with rolling or crevice type acne scarring see vast improvements. Although the procedure requires approximately one week of recovery, the post healing process is more visually unappealing than it is painful.

Typically, immediately post treatment, it feels more like an intense sunburn for a few hours. As this subsides you will have some redness and swelling. Redness increases over the next few days, then turns to a dark brown/bronzing stage and then flakes off. New, blemish free skin is now visible. Unfortunately, now is where you need patience. The collagen building process to smooth out wrinkles is not instantaneous.   Your wrinkles will continue to improve over the next 3-6 month. Basically, your body requires time to build up the collagen level in your skin. Don't worry though- Your friends will notice you did something. Just by removing the dullness to your skin, your face will be more youthful looking -lighter, brighter, tighter..and it will only get better!!

The Fractional CO2 laser treatment is typically a one treatment process, although in some cases a second treatment may be recommended in problem areas.  If you lifestyle doesn't allow for a week recovery time, we also offer the Ematrix/ETwo laser treatment which can deliver similar results over a multi treatment protocol with minimal healing time.  Treatment options include full face or targeted areas such as upper lip lines or under eye wrinkles - or a custom area designed for you.

What is Prerejuvenation?  Prejuvenation is being proactive about your skin - not reactive.  Makes sense, right?  Its much easier to maintain and slow down the aging skin process versus correcting skin that already has alot of sundamage and collagen loss.  The concept is to start treatments before there is an issue (as to prevent aging skin) so that it will prolong more aggressive treatments for later in your life.   Again..makes sense, right?  So what should you do? There are many short, no downtime procedures that are ideal PreRejuvenation treatments.

Remember -Be Proactive not Reactive. 

Here's what we recommend:  Muscle Relaxers: Botox, Dysport etc,  Chemical peels, Fillers, Laser Collagen Stimulation and a Medical Grade Skin Care regiment.

Muscle Relaxers :  Millions of people recognize the name Botox, Dysport etc. These wrinkle reduction injections is a quick virtually painless treatment that has no downtime and prevents the muscle from becoming stronger and thus increasing the wrinkle depth.   Common areas to begin Botox is crows feet,  frown lines (glabella) and forehead lines. Treating these areas before lines are “etched in”  is the basic concept of PreRujvenation.

Dermal Fillers : Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid (HA) are used to improve the minor volume loss which occurs with age. Subtle enhancements can be added to the mid cheek and around the eye to delay premature volume loss. HA fillers are also used to plump up the lips to create a youthful appearance.

Chemical Peels or Light Laser Peel :  Exfoliate and reverse early sun damage.  Rrenews the texture and pigmentation and leaves a youthful and glowing quality to the skin.

LaserCollagen Stimulation: This no downtime, non-invasive laser treatments uses radio-frequency to provide deep skin penetration which stimulates collagen and prevents it from going dormant. Additionally, the intense heat retracts skin to maintain taunt, tight skin.

Medical Grade Skin Care Products :  Your body needs to drink water.  Your skin needs nutrients to maintain healthy skin cells.  Great skin care is imperative to the foundation of great skin. Its important to use some type of  Retin A or Retinol for maintaining youthful skin. A good product line with small particles for easy penetration is ideal. These products lead to increased turnover of the skin cells (pigmentation problems), thicken the skin, and create more hydrated skin. Of course moisturizer and sun block is or should be on your daily regiment. We also highly recommended applying the newest addition to a product line: stem cell growth factors are important to the skin to reverse the aging process.
