Look Years Younger With Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular procedure that improves the appearance of your skin and makes you look years younger. This nonsurgical treatment at Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa uses laser energy to remove the top layer of skin, addressing fine lines and common issues, like acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
Below, medical aesthetics specialist Dr. Gloria Tumbaga reviews the details of laser skin resurfacing and what you can expect during treatment. Call our office in Temecula, CA to discover your skin rejuvenation options.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Over time, lack of collagen production can make your facial features sag and appear tired. Wrinkles may appear as early as our 30s, and regular sun exposure can accentuate these problems and make them worse. Makeup and cosmetics won't do much to camouflage these common signs of aging.
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, uses pulsating beams of light to remove the outer layer of your skin. This promotes new cell growth and encourages collagen production. Collagen and elastin boost the structural support of your skin and restore its natural elasticity. Patients then see younger, more vibrant-looking skin with fewer imperfections.
What can laser skin resurfacing treat?
Factors like age and sun damage can leave your skin sagging and wrinkled. While a consistent skin care routine can be helpful, over-the-counter products can't always improve fine lines or issues related to skin tone or texture. Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa can provide a comprehensive and versatile treatment plan to help you manage the following in Temecula, CA:
Deep creases and wrinkles
Hyperpigmentation or discoloration
Pitted or indented acne scars
Scars from an injury or previous surgery
What laser technology do you use?
Dr. Tumbaga is excited to provide the 4D facelift, which is a series of laser treatments that address the exterior facial and interior oral cavity. This process can tighten the skin and enhance natural volume for youthful outcomes. The 4D facelift uses two laser wavelengths and four treatment modes so results can be completely personalized based on your needs and skin rejuvenation goals.
How often should I return for laser skin resurfacing?
Patients may require several laser peels before seeing significant results. The time in between treatments depends on your unique complexion and how it's responding to our laser technology. Generally, the aesthetic team at Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa recommends waiting several weeks, so your skin has time to heal and recover.
What about plastic surgery?
Plastic surgery is one way to address deeper wrinkles, and hanging or sagging skin. While a facelift can help create smoother skin, this process requires incisions, general anesthesia, and weeks or months of recovery. On the other hand, laser skin resurfacing can offer similar skin rejuvenation results without incisions or going under the knife.
