Benefits of Nonsurgical Skin Rejuvenation

There are many reasons to consider nonsurgical skin rejuvenation to refresh your look and treat problem areas:

  • No anesthesia reduces risks associated with the procedure
  • No incisions mean no post-procedural scarring
  • Treatments are comfortable and do not require downtime afterward
  • The process works deep in the dermal structure for natural results
  • Ability to treat a variety of concerns with one procedure
  • Quick treatment that can be completed during a lunch hour
  • Offers superior outcomes in treating challenging conditions like acne and rosacea
  • Can be structured to the precise needs of each patient

Turn Back Time with Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis delivers a single wavelength of laser energy throughout the dermal structure, targeting areas where it can have the most significant effect. By gently heating the upper dermis, which lies below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. This structural protein is an essential part of the skin’s support system, but depleted levels over time can lead to skin laxity and the appearance of wrinkles. By restoring collagen to the dermis, we can effectively improve some of these concerns.

Over the course of your treatments, Laser Genesis can also help restore the the youthful glow of the skin by evening out rough texture caused by sun damage, scars or aging. You will see a healthy, more radiant complexion as enlarged pores are reduced and minor imperfections are addressed. The results of a single treatment may be subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

Say Goodbye to Sun Damage with an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) procedure

IPL treatment is a noninvasive procedure that uses pulsed light therapy to diminish premature signs of aging, visible vessels and brown spots on the skin. Multiple wavelengths of light are delivered to target the melanin in the dermis if addressing age spots or blood inside a visible vein to improve them. The results of this procedure are a more youthful, clear and revitalized facial appearance. IPL treatments can be customized to your specific skin type and color, providing the best possible results for every patient.

While patients can see positive results after a single IPL session, a series of appointments offers an even more dramatic outcome. Procedures are quick and nearly painless, and improvements develop in the weeks following treatment. You may see spots get darker before sloughing off the skin entirely. Vessels are coagulated so they collapse and can be reabsorbed by the body. This process may occur quickly, and the positive outcome should be permanent unless another vein develops in the area.

Getting the Personal Touch

Three-Tier Skin Rejuvenation is Dr. Kathy Upton’s personalized method of treatment for sun-damaged skin. She uses three modalities during the same treatment: microdermabrasion, Laser Genesis, and IPL to rejuvenate the skin. Microdermabrasion is a method of exfoliation that removes the outermost skin layers, allowing the laser and light energy to penetrate the skin more efficiently. That step is followed by the laser and light treatments, which work together to address multiple skin concerns at one time to create a dramatically enhanced complexion.

Treatment does take a bit longer when all three procedures are performed at the same time. However, the combination approach does not lead to additional discomfort or downtime afterward. Most patients report few if any side effects, although a few experience slight skin redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. It is vital that you protect your skin from exposure to UV rays after this treatment, as it will be vulnerable to damage for the first few days.

Maximizing Results

While you will likely leave your very first treatment session sporting a healthy glow, the results are typically somewhat subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments to achieve optimal results. However, every patient’s condition and needs vary. It is difficult for us to create an appropriate treatment plan for you until we see you for an in-person consultation to assess your skin and discuss your aesthetic goals in detail.
