Facial Rejuvenation in Bedford NY
It is common to feel concerned about the signs of aging as they begin to appear. Historically, the solution to these concerns was plastic surgery. Not anymore. Today, non-surgical modalities are frequently used to rejuvenate the face. We are proud to offer a wide variety of facial rejuvenation treatments in our comfortable facility in Bedford, NY.
What is Facial Rejuvenation?
Facial rejuvenation is the term used to describe surgical and non-surgical treatments through which the various signs of aging are corrected.
What different types of laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments are available?
Our clients may choose from various laser facial rejuvenation treatments, including:
- Erbium YAG “ablative” fractional skin resurfacing lasers are used to improve photodamaged skin and skin laxity with reduced downtime and risks as compared to traditional ablative lasers.
- Clear and Brilliant fractional laser technology affects both the upper layer of skin (epidermis) and the lower layer (dermis) while keeping the skin’s healing process intact to increase production of collagen and elastin.
- The AeroLase YAG Laser can be used on people of various skin types and ages. It is an effective facial rejuvenation treatment to reduce and/or eliminate acne, resulting in clear, smooth skin.
- The Cutera Genesis laser is utilized to restore your skin’s appearance and glow by reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles and acne scars, as well as decreasing skin redness.
Can Laser Facial Rejuvenation Treatments Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, a trained professional can determine which, if any, complementary therapies can be combined with laser skin resurfacing treatment. Common choices include injectables like Botox and dermal fillers. Microneedling and chemical peels can also be performed to enhance the results of laser skin rejuvenation.
What Is IPL Photofacial/Fotofacial?
IPL Photofacial facial rejuvenation treatment involves the use of particular wavelengths of light to induce positive changes in the skin. The light used in this treatment is preferential to melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (red blood cells). When absorbed, light waves cause intentional, controlled damage to these substances. This increases collagen production and circulation into the area, causing melanin and hemoglobin to break up and get absorbed.
What skin conditions benefit from IPL PhotoFacial Facial Rejuvenation Treatments?
IPL photofacials can improve numerous concerns simultaneously. These include:
- Sunspots and other hyperpigmentation concerns
- Blemishes and acne
- Symptoms of rosacea
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins
- Signs of sun damage and aging
- Hemangioma birthmarks
Who is a Good Candidate for IPL Photofacial facial rejuvenation treatments?
Adults who are in good general health and understand what can be achieved with IPL treatment may be good candidates for this type of facial rejuvenation. Treatment is not appropriate for patients with active skin inflammation or who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What are the risks and benefits of IPL PhotoFacial Treatments?
The risks of serious complications related to IPL photofacial treatment are low and occur infrequently. However, because there is a risk of undesirable pigment changes, blisters, burns, and scarring, IPL should only be performed by a licensed professional with adequate training and experience in facial rejuvenation using this modality.
The most common side effects of IPL treatment include:
- Minor swelling
- Flaking and crusting
- Tiny blisters
- Subtle bruising
What do chemical peels do?
The purpose of a chemical peel is to encourage natural cellular turnover. Skin cells grow and die off in a cycle. As cells die, they are supposed to slough off from the epidermis. Quite often, this release is incomplete and the uppermost layer of skin becomes covered by dead and dying cells. A chemical peel removes this cellular layer so that newer, healthier cells can be revealed.
How long is the recovery after a chemical peel and what type of care is necessary?
We offer a variety of skin resurfacing chemical peels depending on your skin conditions and diagnosis. After a peel, the face may appear red and slightly swollen. This is due to a mild inflammatory response. After about three days, the epidermal tissue will begin to flake. Minor flaking and peeling may continue for three to four days.
Typically, an aftercare kit provided after treatment.
What kind of results can you expect to get out of a chemical peel?
Immediate results from a chemical peel include smoother, tighter, more radiant skin. Chemical peels are an excellent facial rejuvenation solution for sun spots and other signs of aging and sun damage. Minor lines and wrinkles around the eyes and other parts of the face can also improve due to the collagen production increase after chemical peel treatment.
