There is no way to avoid the natural changes that affect the skin as the body ages. However, a great many dermatologic treatments are available to men and women who want to preserve their youthful appearance. At The Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center, we are proud to offer our patients a variety of treatment options, all non-invasive or minimally invasive in nature.
Laser therapy may be one of the best ways to address wrinkles. In our Huntington dermatology office, laser treatment may be used on its own or in conjunction with other anti-aging procedures. This form of treatment can produce immense improvement in the skin by achieving a number of goals.
By resurfacing the skin with specific laser technology, it is possible to address concerns such as:
- Sun damage and age spots
- Enlarged oil glands
- Acne scarring and other types of scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes or on the forehead
How laser treatment improves the skin
In recent history, scientists have learned to harness the power of light energy for various purposes. In the dermatologic setting, laser equipment sends short, concentrated pulses of light energy to irregular skin cells. In a single, short treatment session, damaged skin is delicately removed from the epidermis in a very controlled manner.
While laser therapy will remove dead, damaged cells from the top layer or layers of skin, it also heats the cells in the dermis, a deeper layer of skin. It is through heating deeper cells that stimulation of vital substances elastin and collagen takes place. These two substances are what support young, supple, tight skin.
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the number of laser skin resurfacing treatments has increased 215% among women and a whopping 456% among men. In the past, the signs of aging could only be addressed with cosmetic surgery. Now that we have the power of innovative technologies for safer, predictable results, more individuals are taking back control of their own aging process.
