The natural aging process is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take the necessary steps to slow it down. With anti-aging and skin care treatment at Laserderm Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Surgery, you can reduce the appearance of age-inducing qualities and work toward restoring your skin to a youthful glow. We offer several nonsurgical procedures that will help you look years younger.
Many of our patients come to us seeking treatment for age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage, and we aim to provide them with the most comprehensive solution to their needs. The key is to choose a treatment option based on the source of the problem you are facing as well as provide educational resources and preventative tactics that keep skin healthy on an everyday basis.
For age spots
Age spots are often the result of sun exposure and usually don’t appear until after the age of 50. Although harmless, many people choose to have age spots removed for cosmetic reasons, particularly if they are located on the face. We offer bleaching creams that can lighten the appearance of the dark brown spots as well as laser therapy that can destroy the cells producing dark pigment. Other treatment options include microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
For fine lines and wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles on the face can occur for a number of reasons. The more we age, the less elastic our skin becomes as a result of gravity. Sun exposure, weight loss and health factors like smoking can also cause the skin to wrinkle and make you look older. To combat the effects of aging, the glycolic peel is often used to remove the top layers of skin and restore it with the production of natural collagen, thereby reducing the depth of wrinkles. Other procedures may include microdermabrasion and chemical peels, which also stimulate collagen production.
For sun damage
The sun can inflict damage upon the skin in more ways than one. With continued exposure to UV light, the skin can become dry, wrinkled and dehydrated. The sun is also the direct culprit for age spots on the skin. To treat sun damage, it’s vital that you protect your skin with sunscreen, and our physicians will recommend the most effective formula for your needs. Additionally, innovative solutions like the HydraFacial MD can exfoliate dry skin, moisturize it and provide antioxidant protection so that your skin looks clear and healthy. Other procedures include dermabrasion and laser therapy to reduce discoloration caused by the sun.
Because the aging process is likely to appear in multiple forms simultaneously, combinations of these procedures may be used to provide the most effective results. We will also suggest ways for you to protect your skin while outside of our office. Certain measures like sun avoidance or adopting a continuous skin care regimen with antioxidant creams will ensure that the treatment you receive with us is long-lasting and that your skin continues to look young for years to come.
