Why is the winter season ideal for laser treatments?
Although people tend to think more about their leg veins during swimsuit season, the UV rays from the sun are harsh and harder to avoid during the summer months. In the wintertime, you can protect your skin more easily for the needed few weeks after your treatment.
How many laser treatments will I need?
Every patient at Ageless Wellness Center is unique in their needs and desired outcome so the number varies. When we have a consultation with you, our team will better assess how many treatments will be necessary.
What issues can be addressed with laser treatments?
Laser treatment can improve the appearance:
● Hyperpigmentation–age spots, sun damage, birthmarks, etc.
● Redness, small facial veins, rosacea, cherry hemangiomas
● Wrinkles, fine lines and crepey skin
● Scars (including acne scars)
● Rough skin textures–enlarged pores
● Laser hair reduction
● Leg veins
How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment work?
This treatment combats skin discoloration and unwanted hair. Through using photothermal light energy, hair follicles, telangiectasias (fine veins) or hyperpigmentation (sun damage) are targeted. Although you may experience a little redness for a few hours afterwards, there is no down time needed from this treatment. Also, your skin will generate new collagen for an overall improved glow.
How does Laser Peel Treatment work?
A laser scans over your skin and carefully removes micron layers of skin. By removing the upper layers of old damaged skin, your skin will be healthier and younger looking. You can expect about 3-6 days of healing time. Also, you can expect to appear sunburned looking until the damaged skin finishes peeling off.
How does Profractional Laser Treatment work?
This treatment has been effective for a variety of skin conditions. Basically, the laser creates tiny holes deep into the skin which promote collagen production. This process can smooth wrinkles, scars, and other skin imperfections. The healing time usually is only 1-2 days. By day 3, you can usually apply makeup.
