Men and women of any age often have at least one complaint about their skin. Active acne is a leading concern, but age spots, freckles, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone also top the list.
Don’t let your blemishes and dull skin keep you from wanting to go out. Instead, embrace the selection of non-surgical cosmetic treatments designed to improve the look and feel of your skin.
Affirm Laser for Facial Treatment
To improve your skin’s glow and ease the appearance of age spots, uneven skin tone and wrinkles, discover Affirm laser treatments.
Not only does a treatment with the Affirm laser tighten the skin by increasing collagen production, but it also helps the face shed the upper, duller layers of skin. This helps even your skin tone and reduces the appearance of acne scars.
During the treatment, a handheld device delivers low levels of laser energy to the skin. These treatments are not painful, and your skin requires very little recovery time.
If acne is your biggest complaint about your skin, look into FotoFacial treatments. This treatment involves a mix of radiofrequency energy and light to promote collagen production and tighten the skin, while also killing the bacteria that leads to breakouts.
FotoFacial treatments are not painful and take little time. Following the treatment, you can get back to your usual routine quickly. You may notice the benefits immediately, but it can take up to 10 weeks to see the full results of a FotoFacial treatment.
If you want to improve the tone and quality of your skin, help eliminate signs of sun damage, or reduce the appearance of acne without feeling any pain or needing time to recover, consider microdermabrasion.
This treatment takes approximately 40 minutes to complete, and repeat treatments spaced a week or two apart may be necessary for certain skin types.
During a treatment, fine crystals are blown against the surface of the skin through a high-powered instrument. This helps slough dead tissue away, and a vacuum device then removes both the dead skin cells and the crystals. Your skin immediately looks healthier and feels softer. You may need a total of 12 treatments for optimal results.
Thermage treatments typically replace a browlift or facelift surgery. The goal of Thermage is to tighten sagging skin. During a Thermage treatment, the ThermaCool system uses radiofrequency energy to boost collagen production and tighten the skin.
The results take effect immediately and last for upwards of six months. One Thermage treatment takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours to complete, depending on the area being treated. Once treatment is complete, you can return to your usual routine.
Visage facial rejuvenation treatments work in the same manner as Thermage treatments. Radio frequency is used to tighten the skin and help shed the upper layers of skin. Visage uses cold ablation to perform these benefits.
While you do not need anesthesia, you are given IV sedation to help you relax. Following the treatment, your skin may appear pink for a few weeks, and some swelling is possible. The goal of a Visage treatment is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It will not address deep wrinkles, but it can soften their appearance.
