Thanks to modern facial skin care technology, the effects of aging on the skin caused by heredity, lifestyle, and environmental factors no longer have to be accepted as permanent. Today there are many facial rejuvenation options for individuals who would like to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, treat skin problems such as acne and rosacea, or enhance their facial skin care regimen to achieve a look that's healthy and natural.
Laser skin tightening is an advanced wrinkle removal treatment that uses infrared light to tighten the skin without surgery. The laser light delivers heat to layers beneath the skin's surface, stimulating collagen production and making the skin look tighter. Many patients consider the procedure a good alternative to the traditional face lift, as it requires no anesthesia, no scalpel, and no downtime.
Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layers of the skin that are damaged or unevenly pigmented. The laser skin resurfacing procedure stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells in the underlying layers of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing is also used to eliminate or reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck. A fresher, smoother, and more evenly colored complexion can be achieved with this procedure.
Light technology encompasses the way certain wavelengths of light and colors can be used to improve the appearance of your skin. It has also been described as photodynamic therapy (or PDT). There is nothing really new about LED therapy. Over 200 years ago a Danish physician (Dr. Neils Finsen) received a Nobel Prize for demonstration of how various wavelengths of light could be used to treat tuberculosis. NASA has used LED technology in space to promote wound healing and tissue growth. LED therapy has been shown in over 40 years of research to be highly beneficial to the skin.
