Dry, dull skin can age you more than you think. If you miss seeing a vibrant, glowing face in the mirror, it may be the right time to learn about laser skin resurfacing. In just one treatment with us at Bergen Aesthetics, you can take years off your face and achieve the results you’ve been missing from other products.
Why your skin looks dull
As you get older, your hormone levels fluctuate, and your natural production of collagen begins to drop off. This results in a thinning of your skin and more difficulty retaining adequate moisture.
Skin also becomes loose, and wrinkles are more apparent, especially on your face and neck. Fine lines form around your eyes and mouth, making you look older than your years.
While many products claim to bring back your skin to its former beauty, their results are usually very temporary. For this reason, it may be time to consider other options to revitalize your skin for the long term.
This is where laser skin resurfacing comes in. You can truly reverse the signs of premature aging in your first treatment, helping you to look and feel younger than you have in years.
The effect of laser resurfacing on your skin
Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing the outermost layer of your skin. Underneath this surface skin is newer, fresher skin that looks younger and healthier.
Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Ohanian can use specially selected laser technology to address the issues affecting your skin. Common flaws laser resurfacing can correct include:
- Fine lines
- Uneven textures
Laser technology can even eliminate the appearance of noticeable blood vessels on your face.
More about laser technology
Dr. Ohanian offers the Laser-Cutera Pearl® system for laser skin resurfacing. This technology uses pulses of light energy to remove the upper layer of your skin, taking off dead skin cells and visible areas of sun damage, to let the healthy, new skin underneath shine through.
The Pearl laser system also heats the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. Over time, new collagen fills in areas of lost volume responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. You can see a noticeable difference in your skin’s texture and overall appearance as new collagen continues to develop, creating younger-looking, more vibrant skin.
With the Laser-Cutera Pearl technology, you can expect long-lasting results. Additional as-needed maintenance treatments can help you stay fresh and young-looking.
Laser resurfacing is considered safe, and Dr. Ohanian provides you with full aftercare instructions to ensure your skin is properly moisturized.
Younger skin as you heal
With either resurfacing treatment, your skin needs time to heal. As collagen and new skin cells continue to be produced, you can expect to see younger-looking, firmer skin.
Results of laser resurfacing last for months. Depending on your unique situation, additional maintenance treatments may be recommended in the future to help you retain your young appearance and healthier skin.
While you may opt to take a day or two off from work or social engagements while your skin heals, there is little downtime associated with laser resurfacing treatments.
