The signs of aging affect patients throughout Midland, Texas and in other parts of the country. As people age, the elastin and collagen in the skin begins to diminish, which may cause the skin to sag or appear thinner. Age also brings wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots and sun damage to many patients, leading many to explore cosmetic treatments such as the facelift. Surgical facelifts are still the gold standard, although many are also turning to non-surgical facelift options such as Laser 360 that do not require the significant recovery and downtime required with surgical facelifts.
Laser 360 Resolution using Harmony Laser is actually a series of treatments. Its aim is to produce significant results in 60 days. A skin rejuvenation laser and skin tightening laser are used first and a microdermabrasion is administered about a week later. This aims to treat uneven skin tones, fine lines, sun damage and rosacea. Skin tightening improves the appearance of the skin around the neck and face, while the microdermabrasion treats any brown spots that are visible after the skin rejuvenation laser.
One week later, the Pixel resurfacing laser and skin tightening laser are applied. The skin tightening laser is used again to continue to improve the elastin and collagen in the skin. The Pixel laser resurfacing procedure penetrates the skin to treat deep wrinkles, scarring, sun damage and melasma. To accomplish this, it works by building elastin and collagen in the skin. There may be a few days of redness and peeling following the Pixel laser, so patients should be aware of this prior to treatment. Once again, a microdermabrasion is performed about a week later to exfoliate the skin.
This combination of lasers is repeated twice more every two weeks. Laser 360 may be performed on the chest, neck, face, arms, hands and back. Patients should consider treating the face, neck and chest all at the same time. This keeps everything looking the same age, so to speak. For instance, if a patient only treats their face, they may still bear signs of aging on their neck and chest.
Laser 360 is considered a safe procedure, but patients are always encouraged to discuss their candidacy for treatment with a medical professional in the Midland area prior to undergoing the procedure. This is usually the best resource for information pertaining to cosmetic conditions, the signs of aging and the various laser and non-laser treatments used to provide relief.
