Your face tells a story of who you are, where you’ve been, and the things you love to do. Smiling, laughing, being in the sun and wind are all things we enjoy. Unfortunately, as we get older, our face and skin may not reflect how great we really feel inside.
Frown lines, crow’s feet, and furrows between the eyes can begin to appear in our 30s and early 40s. Fortunately, today there are great options available for those looking to maintain a youthful look without surgical procedures. They require little recovery time, so you can have these cosmetic procedures done with minimal interruption to your daily life.
The Aesthetic Center of Lubbock offers a comprehensive array of non-surgical skin rejuvenating services that are designed to make you look as great as you feel. These include:
- Broad Band Light / Intense Pulsed Light Laser Treatments
- Skin Tyte Laser Facial Treatments
- Skin Care
This innovative laser technology uses pulsed light technology to selectively heat the dermal collagen deep in your skin while simultaneously cooling and protecting the epidermis (your outer layer of skin). The result is partial coagulation and contraction of collagen. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, and upper chest. It can also be used to firm up loose belly skin after pregnancy or weight loss.
The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing you a comfortable and safe procedure.
During the procedure
This treatment takes about 30-60 minutes per area, and is done in our office. The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, the physician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results.
After the procedure
There is minimal facial swelling (if any at all) the first day, and you can wear make-up immediately. There is virtually no downtime.
To get the best results, most patients require an average of 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart. However, because each patient’s skin is different, the treatment number can vary. The majority of patients feel that their skin is tighter after just one treatment, but visible improvements in skin tone generally take place over 3 – 6 months.
This exciting laser technology is perfect for those who wish to tighten and firm up their skin. Coming back to our practice for 1-2 maintenance treatments per year can help maintain your results and prevent the natural acceleration of skin aging that normally occurs. You can combine treatments with our Broad Band Light photofacial treatments for age spots and sun damage.
