Asheville Laser Facial Rejuvenation

Effectively Treats Age & Sun Damage

As the skin ages and the sun wreaks its havoc, the subdermal collagen and elastin support network breaks down. Lines and wrinkles appear, age spots surface and the facial structure soon loses its fight against gravity. Creams and serums can only do so much to fix the breakdown of the skin’s matrix, pigmentation problems and other effects of the sun. Laser therapy, on the other hand, employs a precise wavelength of light energy to go where topical treatments can’t travel. In fact, studies demonstrate that laser therapy helps create a rejuvenated appearance, smoother texture, even skin tone and decreased pore size.

Outstanding Results, Minimal Downtime

Laser facial rejuvenation used to be performed with ablative lasers which wounded the top layers of skin. While these aggressive lasers are still used to treat deep wrinkles and advanced photo-damage, they often include significant recovery time. Thankfully, technological advancements have provided us with another option for facial rejuvenation treatment in Asheville. Our non-abalative laser uses PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) energy for quick full-face treatment options with no downtime and minimal discomfort. New collagen in your skin synthesizes, causing lines and wrinkles to diminish and your facial structure appears and feels firmer & smoother.

What To Expect After Laser Facial Treatments

The laser is extremely safe when administered by an experienced practitioner. The selective energy targets only collagen fibers or pigment. The addition of the PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) feature on the laser allows practitioners to treat large spot sizes on all skin types, even dark and tanned skin, with the highest degree of safety, effectiveness and comfort. This advanced PTP setting penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen, and diminish wrinkles and acne scars. Although patients describe feeling a tingling sensation when the laser is administered, a topical anesthetic is usually not necessary. Because not-ablative laser rejuvenation is a gradual process, four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart are typically indicated.

Pigment Spots and IPL Photofacials

Freckles, Sun Spots, Unwanted Pigment – Treating Stubborn Signs of Aging

Pigment Treatment

Dark spots on the skin are often perceived as a sign of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Freckles may have been cute as a young child, but now these melanin deposits look more like a side effect of too many days lounging in the sun. Freckles, sun spots, liver spots – whatever you call them, they’re technically known as "pigmented lesions" and they form when melanin concentrates in one area of the skin, usually as a result of overexposure to UV rays.

What to Expect
The laser emits light in rapid, short pulses at high peak energy for maximum efficacy and comfort. The impact feels like no more that the snap of a thin rubber band. As the light shatters the pigment and diffuses the lesion, the spot will turn gray or white for a few minutes as the skin absorbs the energy. Any post-treatment discomfort will be similar to a mild sunburn, and any redness will dissipate within a day or two as the skin returns to its natural color.

How many treatments are required?
Typically several sessions are required. The average treatment takes about 15 – 20 minutes. Results may be seen after the first few treatments. The treatment will be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of typical anesthetics or gel.

IPL Photorejuvenation

As the population ages, ever increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. IPL treatments can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.

What to Expect
IPL treatment improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process call photorejuvenation for face and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects. The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands - virtually anywhere that sun damage appears.

IPL treatments are quick, gentle and non-invasive and patients can see dramatic results within a very short time. Contact Belle Mia to learn more about our laser facial services today.
