Laser Facial Rejuvenation
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.
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.
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.
