Facelift by Laser Resurfacing
Are you eager to have the younger, refreshed appearance that a facelift can produce but just can’t bring yourself to undergo an invasive surgical procedure? You’re in luck! Thanks to advances in facial rejuvenation techniques, it is now possible to experience a facelift by laser resurfacing that will uncover a younger, more radiant aspect without the need for a single cut, nip, or tuck. While of course, these procedures are not as effective as facelifts that are performed through surgical intervention, laser resurfacing procedures can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and certain skin conditions. Laser resurfacing is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation procedures currently available, hailed by many as the optimal way to rehabilitate aging skin.
Unlike surgical facelifts, which work by physically altering the structure of the patient’s face, laser resurfacing facelifts improve the face’s appearance using a “heat and heal” cycle that actually stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This improves the condition of your skin, so it appears younger, firmer, and more attractive. Your skin continues improving for several months after receiving treatment.
In certain facial areas and conditions, laser resurfacing is recommended over dermal fillers and surgical intervention. These areas include the vertical wrinkles that can form above the lip (also known as “smoker’s lines”) large pores, and wrinkling and sagging around the jawline and in the neck. Once the face has completed peeling, patients are left with smooth, soft skin glowing with vitality.
The recovery time varies with laser skin rejuvenation, depending on the number of passes and type of laser used. Ablative lasers, such as the SmartSkin CO2 laser, burn off the outermost layer of skin and a portion of the sub-layer. It only takes one or two treatments to get the desired results, but recovery time can take longer – anywhere from a week to ten days to finish peeling.
With non-ablative lasers like the Cynosure 1540 Erbium laser, results are achieved by heating the skin without actually burning off any tissue. This procedure can take several sessions to be effective, but recovery is virtually instantaneous, leaving many recipients able to return to their daily activities at once.
