1540 Skin Resurfacing
If you look older than you feel, reversing the signs of aging is easy with the non-invasive technology of 1540 Skin Resurfacing. Laser skin revitalization can dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the downtime and recovery that face lifts and other surgical procedures require. At Protea Medispa, we offer both ablative skin resurfacing (using Fractora by InMode), and non-ablative (using Icon Palomar). The basic difference between ablative and non-ablative treatments is that ablative lasers remove the top layer of skin, while non-ablative lasers work by heating up the underlying skin tissue (without harming the surface) so that your body will produce new collagen.
How does Laser Skin Revitalization work?
The laser energy microbeams extend deep below the surface of the skin to create areas of affected tissue. Then, the body’s natural healing processes activate collagen and elastin production mechanisms to replace the laser-damaged tissue with new, healthy skin cells. Icon laser anti-aging treatments do not damage the surrounding skin, giving you impressive results in very little time.
Laser wrinkle reduction and skin revitalization are the future of advanced skin care. This revolutionary laser anti-aging technology is FDA-cleared and will greatly improve the texture and overall appearance of your skin.
What to Expect During Laser Skin Resurfacing
Improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is quick and easy with most laser treatments lasting about one hour. Depending on your skin type, several sessions may be required to achieve the best results. Laser skin revitalization treatments have few side effects. Patients may experience slight discomfort when the laser is applied, and some redness and minor swelling after treatment. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately following laser anti-aging treatments.
