How a proper pretreatment process can help you achieve younger-looking skin
You may need to take some precautions in the weeks leading up to your appointment. It's recommended that you try to avoid unprotected exposure to the sun to prevent any additional pigmentation. It's also best to avoid smoking two weeks before your treatment to ensure your body's proper healing response.
Before your procedure, we'll devise a personalized treatment plan for you. Our experts will assess the condition of your skin and discuss your desires and expectations. We'll also help you explore how the laser treatment will affect you based on skin tone, thickness, and other patient-specific biological factors.
During the planning process, we'll weigh multiple factors in deciding the best option for you, including your current health status, medical history, any medications, and whether you've undergone any previous aesthetic work. Then, Dr. Tumbaga will make sure you're informed about any potential risks, the procedure itself, the results you can expect, and the recovery process.
What types of noninvasive, laser-based skin resurfacing treatments can you expect to receive?
We proudly offer many kinds of laser-based treatments, some of which are utilized in conjunction to achieve synergistic effects.
We also offer both non-ablative and ablative treatments, which gently exfoliate the top-most surface layer of the skin and induce cell turnover and regeneration. The pulses of light energy also penetrate into the deeper layers below the skin, stimulating the connective tissues to kick-start collagen formation and tighten your skin from the inside out.
Our 4D Facelift provides all the benefits of a traditional facelift in a nonsurgical, minimally invasive way. And our SmoothLiftin™, FRAC3®, PIANO®, and SupErficial™ systems work in concert to help get rid of scars, blemishes, and other signs of aging while requiring little to no downtime. The Fotona TightLase simultaneously harnesses the power of two wavelengths to provide unmatched skin-firming, cellulite-removing results.
What to do and consider after your anti-aging regenerative treatment
After your treatment, we'll devise a personalized care plan to ensure your optimal outcome. This includes recommendations for soothing creams and other tips to increase your comfort and promote total healing.
During this period, you should take a temporary break from shaving, waxing, using depilatory creams, or any other hair removal processes, as they can cause irritation and disrupt recovery.
You will experience some redness, swelling, itching, and peeling, but it's vital that you do not pick at your skin, as this causes damage and may lead to scarring. It's also crucial to protect yourself from solar exposure, as it could reverse some of the treatment's effects.
We know this may cause some discomfort, but it's well worth it for the fantastic, transformative results of your laser skin treatment. Of course, we'll do everything we can to make the experience as comfortable as possible. This may include applying skin-relieving ointments and dressings to keep the area clean and allow the best skin-tightening results.
The recuperation period will also depend on whether you'd like to follow through with some touch-up sessions. The deeper-reaching skin revitalizing systems offer a more complete, comprehensive resurfacing and provide longer-lasting effects.
