Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and this is the perfect time to show your skin some love!
That warm feeling is in the air. Chocolate hearts and stuffed animals are flooding our local stores. Floral shops are running on high gear. And, as you prepare for a night out with your valentine, you may begin to feel the added pressure to look your best.
Your skin should be one of the first things on your Valentine’s Day beauty list.
Every day, our skins endure gradual and continual damage. Without much notice, external elements like the sun and hot water can wreak havoc on our skins. This is something which can go unnoticed for quite a while before our age also starts taking a toll on the appearance and health of our skin. When combined, these factors can make it even harder for us to have youthful looking complexions.
The good news is that you can do something about it!
Allow us to pamper you as we beam away years of natural aging and sun damage, along with dull, dry skin from winter’s chill with our Profound laser skin tightening and our Claro2 laser skin resurfacing treatments. These noninvasive procedures will reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve scars, discoloration, and blemishes, and you will finally regain lost elasticity in those areas of concern.
What are the Benefits of Laser Therapy?
If we haven’t convinced you quite yet, then let us tell you why laser therapy is the best non-invasive solution to tighten and smooth your skin:
- It is fast and convenient. An appointment for our laser skin therapy typically lasts less than one hour, and you only need a single session!
- It is minimally invasive. Since incisions and stitches aren’t necessary, the risk for complications are extremely low.
- There is no pain. Only local anesthesia is needed (no general), which means you are awake and comfortable during your procedure – and on your drive home afterward.
- Improvements are seen quickly. The majority of patients who choose laser skin therapy see an obvious difference within just a couple of weeks of their appointment!
- Results are long-lasting. Typically, maximum results are seen around the 6-month mark, but improved skin appearance can last for several years. (Of course, this may vary based on factors such as lifestyle, health, age, etc.)
- There is virtually no downtime. You can drive home after your procedure, which isn’t the case for every procedure we offer. Beyond that, you will likely be able to return to normal activities (including work) almost immediately. In cases where swelling and bruising are present, these tend to be minor concerns and should quickly diminish.
What is Profound Laser Skin Tightening Therapy?
Over time, our skins gradually lose their ability to produce new elastin and collagen. These proteins are used to keep skin elastic, flexible, and youthful. Instead, our bodies start to break down existing supplies of elastin and collagen.
And, without its elasticity, our skin will eventually start to sag and droop – wrinkles and jowls form, and we lose definition on our jawlines. It is actually inevitable. And, though factors like smoking, diet, and sun exposure can make this breakdown happen even faster, the reality is that you can’t stop it from happening.
However, there is no need to panic! We are proud to introduce to you our Profound laser skin tightening treatment.
The Profound laser has been clinically proven to kickstart production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to tighten your skin and create a more youthful appearance. Essentially, whenever the body stops producing the proteins on its own, Profound picks up the slack.
This laser generates a specific, temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy that is used to heat lower layers of your skin – the dermis and subcutaneous layers – to a precise temperature of 67 degrees Celsius (the optimal temperature for stimulating collagen and elastin production and creating dermal volume).
Profound will, therefore, help your body recreate the basic building blocks it needs to make tighter, more youthful-looking skin.
What Conditions Can Be Improved by Profound?
This technology is an effective tool to improve facial contouring. Not to mention that it also reduces – and at times altogether eliminates – the appearance of conditions such as:
- Fine lines
- Excess fat
- Sagging skin
- Double chins
- Turkey neck
- Poor jawline definition
What is Claro2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Therapy?
Dr. Learn also uses a laser that features short bursts of concentrated light to remove layers of damaged skin. This laser beam passes over your skin and gently vaporizes the outer layer (your epidermis), while also heating up lower layers (dermis). In doing so, the Claro2 encourages the growth of new cells while boosting collagen production.
With its precise calibration, Dr. Learn is able to focus only on the specific areas of concern. This means that the surrounding tissue, which doesn’t necessarily need treatment, is left unaffected. As the treated areas heal, you will immediately notice healthy, vibrant skin.
The healing process can take up to a few weeks, and any lingering redness or irritation will gradually fade within two to three months. For more details about post-procedure instructions, here are a couple guides to keep you informed:
You should keep in mind that it is important to protect your skin during this healing period – use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day. Stay away from direct sunlight between 10:00 am and 2:00 p.m. Whenever you are outside, you should wear long-sleeved shirts and a wide-brimmed hat for protection.
And don’t forget to keep your newly rejuvenated skin moisturized!
