OVERVIEW for Anti-Aging Treatment
Many women and men experience issues in their appearance as they age and associate them with getting older. They believe that their only option is to "just deal with it". Many of these common complaints are a result of changing hormone levels that naturally occur while the body ages. The exciting news is the answer is not to just "deal with it." Many of these aging issues are treatable and often even turn back in appearance the hands of time. You don't have to "just deal with it" anymore. Find yourself again. It's time to "slow down" that aging process, and put your best appearance forward.
Below are the options offered at Allure Laser Center & MedSpa to deal with the aging process. Our professional, aesthetically trained medical staff will meet personally with you, provide an analysis and prescribe a personalized treatment program to help you meet your desired goal.
Facial Peels- Great for Anti- Aging and Acne
The Obagi Blue Peel and Skin Medica peels are a great way to rejuvenate the facial skin. Through the use of natural chemical agents, fine lines are removed, the skin is tightened and the appearance of scars or "age spots" are reduced or removed. These treatments not only reverse the signs of aging, but also protect against skin cancers by removing sun damaged skin cells, resulting in beautiful, youthful skin.
Microdermabrasion- Good for Acne and for Exfoliation
Microdermabrasion has emerged as today's leading non-invasive cosmetic procedure. Our Delphia II system is a gentle and effective mechanical peeling of the skin, which creates increased blood circulation, oxygenation of skin cells and improved epidermal cellular turnover. New skin cells will emerge and give you a healthy, balanced complexion. It also improves fine lipstick lines, acne scarring and crow's feet (wrinkles around the eyes).
Vibradermabrasion is the new "cutting edge" dermabrasion treatment that creates immediate results, improving skin tone and texture and leaving skin smoother and more vibrant. This method is clinically proven to effectively exfoliate dead cells and produce new collagen. The Vibraderm uses a large surface coated with fixed abrasives; therefore, large areas (i.e. face, neck, back, arms, and hands) can be treated evenly with less irritation. It helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and improves acne/scarring.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment (Photo-Facial Rejuvenation)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, also known as photo-facial rejuvenation, is a new advancement that is safe and non-invasive. Utilizing state of the art Elos technology photo-facial rejuvenation erases skin damage without disrupting the skin's surface and simultaneously treats a wide range of facial problems to improve the texture and complexion of your skin. It is extremely effective in treating brown spots, sun spots, pigmented lesions, fine lines, wrinkles and rosacea. Intense Pulsed Light is a low risk treatment with no downtime and leaves skin smoother, even-toned, and more youthful.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
The Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) treatment is a two step treatment for actinic keratoses utilizing the drug Levulan (amino levulinic acid HCL) and an IPL light source. These treatments remove sun damaged pre-cancerous zones and spots called actinic keratoses. Sun damage, fine lines, and blotchy pigmentation are also improved because of the positive effect of Levulan and the light treatment. The PDT treatment also has the unique ability to minimize pores and reduce oil glands, effectively treating stubborn acne vulgaris, acne rosacea, and improve the appearance of some acne scars. The peeling process can take two to seven days and post treatment instructions are given to you to care for your improved skin.
