The holidays are a time to reconnect with friends and family you may not see as much throughout the year. Make sure you are putting your best face forward with professional skin rejuvenation treatments that restore your youthful vitality and glow. At Incredible Veins Skin & Body, we offer a variety of skin treatments that will shave a few years off your face, while minimizing other imperfections that keep you from looking and feeling your best.
The SmartSkin CO2 Fractional Laser offers superb skin resurfacing results with minimal discomfort and downtime. The treatment can reduce signs of aging, repair sun damage and minimize the appearance of age spots and shallow scarring. You can even use this procedure to refresh tired eyes, by reducing dark undereye circles and sagging skin around the lower lid.
Laser energy is delivered in short pulses beneath the skin’s surface, generating the body’s own healing process. The procedure usually takes one hour or less to complete, with another hour allotted if a topical numbing cream is used. Results are usually seen within 7-14 days and most patients are ready to return to regular activities within one week.
For a less invasive, but equally effective skin rejuvenation procedure, consider the Picosure Focus Lens Array. This revolutionary procedure has been highly touted for its efficacy tattoo removal, but also offers excellent results in skin revitalization, scar removal and anti-aging. The Picosure delivers faster bursts of energy to the skin than any other device on the market, allowing treatments to penetrate deep within the dermal layers without damaging surrounding skin and tissue.
A treatment session with the Picosure usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete and most patients only require 2-3 treatment sessions to achieve desired results. There is little downtime after the procedure, with most patients experiencing some redness and tenderness for a day or two after treatment. Picosure Focus Lens Array can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scarring and pigmentation spots.
For individuals looking for a way to erase telltale signs of aging and restore youthful volume to the face, injectable treatments are also available. Botox and dermal fillers are designed to smooth away fine lines and deeper facial creases without any downtime involved. The formulas are created to work in different ways to allow for treatment of a wide range of aging concerns.
Botox is a neuromodulator, which means it relaxes facial muscles that lead to the formation of wrinkles. It is commonly used on the upper portion of the face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Dermal fillers support the underlying structure of the skin, smoothing away lines and restoring volume from the inside out. These injections are often recommended for the lower half of the face, including the cheeks and around the nose, mouth and chin.
