Resurfacing For Glowing Skin

When it comes to smoothing wrinkles and fighting the effects of time, the best non-surgical, anti-aging treatment comes from well below the skin’s surface. For women and men who want the dramatic results of a deep treatment without going under the knife, the latest laser procedures offer a non-invasive, yet effective alternative. Melt away fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars, and age spots with the precision of laser skin resurfacing.

Dr. Joseph Shvidler will discuss the best laser devices for rejuvenating your skin’s appearance and health at every age. There are lasers that work best for those in their 20’s and lasers for those in their 60’s, all of which help even out skin’s texture and tone, remove brown spots, facial redness and sun damage. For the problem of skin laxity or sagging, laser treatment can tighten skin around the face and neck. These treatments can also improve crepe lines around eyes and mouth that fillers and Botox┬« cannot fix.

The procedure uses specific light wavelengths that heat up the tissue, facilitating the skin’s reproduction of collagen and elastin that cause a natural tightening. Laser resurfacing also removes outer layers of damaged skin, stimulating the regeneration of healthy skin underneath, to reveal the underlying skin, “turning back the clock” on your complexion, exposing skin which is softer, smoother and younger-looking.

Laser treatment is an outpatient procedure, so you will likely go home the same day. To safely provide you with the best results, Dr. Shvidler will inject your face with a special numbing solution. This will make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

The procedure may take from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size of the area being treated. The skin will become red for several days and some swelling is normal. Your skin should heal from 10 days to three weeks.

The results of a laser treatment last anywhere between 5 to 10 years; however, your skin quality and maintenance are important factors in the longevity of the effect. A laser procedure can be an effective method to improve appearance and boost self-confidence, however, it is not for everyone. Contact Dr. Shvidler to schedule your consultation. It is important because he will advise you if you’re a good candidate.
