When it comes to fighting wrinkles, which took years to develop, it’s hard to believe that something can be done in under an hour to reverse them. Yet, it’s true. And there’s more than one option to choose from. Today’s anti-aging techniques combine technology and the power of the human body to dial back the years in mere minutes.
At Lasercare Skin Clinic, we offer the latest proven treatments to rejuvenate and refresh your skin, erasing or reducing the well-worn paths that time has created. Our patients in Little Rock, Arkansas, enjoy a full menu of skincare options that reduce or minimize wrinkles in the same amount of time it takes to do a load of laundry.
And here’s a peek at the menu to get you started.
The power of laser
Laser technology isn’t all that new, but refinements in the equipment have allowed us to deliver precise and targeted laser energy to the layers beneath your skin to do two things: clear away old skin cells and spur a mild healing response. This one-two punch is extremely effective, because it not only gets rid of tired skin cells, it also prompts your body to ramp up collagen production.
Collagen is responsible for the elasticity and tone in your skin, but as you age its production begins to slow, and it’s unable to keep up with skin that breaks down after years of exposure. The laser energy provides just the wake-up call your body needs to increase collagen production, leaving you with firmer, smoother skin.
While the laser procedure itself is fast, and we can do it in under an hour, you’re not going to walk out as a younger version of yourself. Because we’re tapping your body’s own resources, you need to give your skin time to rebuild and repair, which may take several weeks.
Giving it a shot
If you want dramatic results that are evident almost immediately, cosmetic injectables may be just the ticket for your next lunch hour. We have two types of injectables — Botox® and fillers — and each tackles wrinkles from different directions.
With Botox, we can temporarily reduce the muscle activity that creates the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, between your brows, and across your forehead. The effects of Botox are immediate, or at least within 24-48 hours, and they last for up to four months, at which point you can return for another treatment.
For the lines on the bottom half of your face, dermal fillers are the best solution. With these fillers, which contain hyaluronic acid (a substance naturally found in your body), we can fill in the deep lines that run from your nose down either side of your mouth, forming a set of parentheses on your lower face. We can also use dermal fillers to reduce the tiny vertical lines around your lips. Dermal fillers go to work immediately and last for 1-2 years.
Frozen in time
One of the more innovative treatments we offer is our Venus Freeze™, which uses radiofrequency energy with magnetic pulses to quickly tighten the skin around your face and neck. In addition to the immediate tightening effect, this system also spurs collagen production for longer-lasting results.
Scrub it out
To give your skin a quick refreshening in under an hour, we offer a number of different med spa treatments that get rid of old, tired skin and encourage new skin in its wake. From oxygen with light therapy facials to diamond microdermabrasion techniques, if you give us one hour, we can revitalize your skin in many different ways.
