Your lifestyle choices (whether or not you exercise, your method of skin care treatment, the amount of water you drink, etc.) all have a part to play in how healthy your skin appears as you age. These components of care also apply to the way in which your skin responds to wrinkles, fine lines, and deeper folds produced in the skin as a result of photodamage. The type of skin you have – dry, combination, oily, or sensitive skin – is another aspect you’ll want to know more about so that you can properly care for your tissues and maintain smooth, youthful skin.
Skin Rejuvenation Methods Are Not Just for Women
Whenever we mention skin care and anti-aging options, many people assume these are only things women can benefit from. While women often have thinner and more delicate skin than men, these skin care treatments can be applied to all types of skin, no matter your gender. So, men, we invite you to enter the world of rejuvenation treatments that will keep that h4 skin as healthy and beautiful as possible.
The top concern we address is whether or not wrinkles, lines, uneven texture and tone, and large pore size have developed into a less than healthy and fresh face. While we support the fresh face goal, it’s important that you start thinking about your chest and neck as well. We offer a specialized non-ablative laser resurfacing therapy called REDO that uses the ClearLift Alma laser to tackle every skin care concern in all of these areas and more.
REDO Skin Resurfacing With ClearLift
If you’re unfamiliar with the difference between ablative and non-ablative lasers, ablative procedures can be a harsher resurfacing treatment that may require a couple weeks of recovery. However, the non-ablative laser used in the REDO skin resurfacing treatment with ClearLift is one of our favorites because there’s no recovery required or trauma to your skin cells. The most important thing for most patients is that they can undergo a discreet treatment that corrects their skin care concerns without announcing it to the world with the obvious signs of recovery that some high-level laser treatments require.
ClearLift is set as a Q-Switched, Nd: YAG, fractional, non-ablative, 1064nm laser treatment that is effective at not only treating uneven textures and nonresponsive skin, but the dermal layer as well. The dermal layer is what many people are hoping will change with over the counter skin care treatments, but that change isn’t possible unless you use laser therapy or surgery. We can address the following areas and concerns in
- Face (vertical lip lines, lines around the eyes)
- Dark circles around the eyes
- Skin tone and texture
Application of ClearLift Laser
During the procedure, you’ll relax on the treatment table in our luxurious Spa in the City treatment room, wearing a pair of protective goggles. You won’t need any anesthetic during this REDO skin resurfacing treatment because it’s pain-free, so the aesthetician will begin going over your skin in a linear pattern with the ClearLift hand tool. Short rushes of light therapy absorb into the skin as the fractional and gentle non-ablative laser penetrates down into your collagen and elastin fibers.
On average, each session takes about 20 minutes, but can be extended or shortened based on what you need. Typically, you’ll need anywhere from four to six sessions spaced one week apart to see a marked difference in the skin, especially if you have deeper set wrinkles. Most people begin noticing these changes subtly about two weeks from the first treatment.
You’ll notice better circulation from the effects of the natural repair and resurfacing of cells working to create that fresh skin you’re looking for.
