After a long summer spent having fun in the sun, your skin may have some damage. Sun spots and wrinkles can form when exposed to UV light without proper protection. While the best offense is a good defense—wear sunscreen—you can do plenty to reverse existing damage. Laser skin resurfacing at our Rochester, NY, practice is one easy way to rejuvenate your skin.
Fall and winter are the best times for laser skin treatments because the shorter days and colder temperatures make it easier to stay out of the sun after your procedure—a must during the recovery.
Not all lasers are equal, though. Depending on your needs, you may be better suited to one type of laser than another. For example, more aggressive skin resurfacing lasers require more recovery time, as we discuss in this blog post. Here are 3 of the most popular laser skin resurfacing options we offer at our practice.
Halo is the perfect laser to help you restore your natural glow. The hybrid laser vaporizes aging skin tissue and promotes the body’s healing response to replace old, damaged cells with new ones. You will see improvements in overall skin tone, skin reflexivity, and glow. Freckles, poor texture, and even old scars will begin to fade over time gradually.
Halo works best in a series of sessions, but you can decide how many treatments you’d like. Your clinician will analyze your target areas and recommend a customized beauty routine.
Forever Young BBL™
Forever Young BBL is slightly different than other light-based rejuvenation procedures. Beyond just repairing damaged skin, it can also change skin cells at the molecular level. The treatment delivers light energy that penetrates and heats the skin’s upper and lower layers. As the heat is absorbed, collagen production is stimulated within the cells, and the body naturally creates smoother, more vibrant skin.
The number of treatments required will depend on your skin type and desired look. The results are long-lasting and can treat many issues—brown spots, red spots, discoloration—without surgery.
Red, splotchy skin can make you look older than you feel, and Vbeam Perfecta is here to help. This pulsed-dye laser produces gentle bursts of light that fade sunspots, rosacea, and spider veins. Each burst of light destroys the blood vessels of vascular lesions or melanin in pigmented areas. Your skin is left clean and clear as your body reabsorbs the destroyed vessels or melanin.
The Vbeam laser has been used for many years and is a safe, trusted procedure. Treatment typically takes 2 to 5 sessions, reversing years of extensive sun damage.
If you were sunburnt this summer and now have discoloration, don’t worry—we offer treatments that reduce the damage. Our skincare experts can find the suitable laser for your needs so you can enjoy rejuvenated, healthy skin.
