Laser Skin Rejuvenation
You wake up every day feeling a sense of hope and renewal, ready to take on the world and let your inner spirit shine. Your skin should be a physical manifestation of that inner spirit: bright, clear, distinctly you. Rejuvenating your skin helps ensure that the face you show the world each day is the one that matches who you are inside — where it counts.
Laser skin rejuvenation brings new life to your skin, just as you feel renewed with the dawn of each new day. It’s not about turning you into something different or changing your look into something fake and unnatural; it’s about letting the best you come through.
Healthy Skin from the Inside Out
Healthy skin is part of your overall health. While spa treatments serve their purpose to get you to look your best, the aesthetic specialists at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness in Manhattan believe in a holistic approach that includes lifestyle changes. The better you feel, the better you look. Several factors that can affect your health and the condition of your skin include:
- Eating food that’s rich in vitamins and nutrients helps your skin maintain that healthy glow. Too many processed foods or those packed with unhealthy fats can leave you feeling dragged down and out of sorts — and that shows in your skin.
- Not drinking enough water can leave your skin parched and thirsty, giving it a dry, flaky appearance. Hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking plenty of water and on the outside by moisturizing your skin every day.
- Excessive sun exposure can lead to wrinkles, fine lines and unsightly age spots on your skin. Part of a healthy lifestyle includes the regular use of sunblock. And remember, big shades and floppy hats aren’t just fabulous fashion statements; they also help keep the sun from damaging your skin.
- Hormonal changes. Each stage of life has its own rich rewards, and as you transition from maiden to wise woman, the hormonal fluctuations that accompany each stage can cause changes in your skin’s tone and elasticity.
- For better or for worse, some people are simply more genetically prone to show the effects of aging than others.
There’s no way to halt the aging process, and some skin changes, such as “laugh lines,” are the result of living well. After all, what good is a life without laughter? Even with the most careful attention to what you eat and drink and how you take care of your skin, you may find yourself missing that youthful glow and wishing for a smoother, clearer appearance. You may have non-age related skin woes as well, such as rosacea or scarring. That’s where laser treatments can help.
Picture-Perfect Skin with Photorejuvenation
IPL photorejuvenation uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to correct a number of common skin complaints, including:
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Broken capillaries or spider veins
- Mild to moderate acne scarring
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
An IPL photofacial (sometimes known as an IPL facial) uses light to get under the surface of your skin, smoothing it out and reducing discoloration. You’ll be given special eyewear to protect your delicate eyes from the light used during the procedure, and the clinician uses a handheld device to focus high energy beams of light on problem areas.
IPL photorejuvenation works by lightening areas of discoloration and creating new collagen under the epidermis, plumping your skin to create a smoother appearance. It usually takes several sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve the full effect of the treatment, and you should continue your holistic skincare regimen to ensure maximum benefits.
One-Stop Skin Rejuvenation
The procedure is minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness. The Midtown NYC office is designed for comfort, and you’ll relax in a soothing, spa-like atmosphere while your skin is treated with the utmost care.
There’s usually little to no pain involved, and the recovery time is minimal. You may experience mild swelling, inflammation, and discomfort following an IPL photofacial, but these usually pass quickly and can often be helped by icing down the area or applying a cooling gel to the treatment area before the procedure begins.
A Smooth Finish with Laser Skin Resurfacing
While IPL photorejuvenation uses light to work under the skin, laser skin resurfacing works on the skin itself, gently removing layers of damage to expose the new, younger-looking skin below. Laser skin resurfacing can be an effective treatment for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots, sun spots, or melasma
- Enlarged oil glands
Laser skin resurfacing is another outpatient procedure, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities fairly quickly. Because the concentrated beams of light actually remove layers of your skin, the recovery time is slightly longer than for IPL photorejuvenation. You may be given a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort, and you can expect mild pain and some swelling after the procedure. However, the result is skin that looks dewy and fresh, matching your youthful spirit.
As you get older, the effects of gravity kick in and can make your skin loose and a little saggy, especially around your cheeks and neck. This can draw down the corners of your mouth and eyes, giving you the appearance of being sad or upset when you really aren’t. Many people are opting for laser skin tightening, a quick and usually painless procedure that firms up the skin and gives you a younger, more upbeat appearance.
Like the IPL photorejuvenation, laser skin tightening works under the skin. The focused beams of high energy light heat up the collagen under the epidermis, causing the skin in that area to tighten. Any discomfort is typically offset by the use of a topical anesthetic cream applied before the procedure, and recovery time is minimal. It usually takes three sessions to see full results, and each session can last from a few minutes to about an hour, depending on how large an area needs to be treated.
Keeping Up Appearances
After your laser skin rejuvenation is complete, you can help maintain the effects by continuing to practice conscientious care of your body, mind and spirit. Remember to stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and other healthful beverages such as green tea and matcha.
Beauty sleep isn’t a myth; staying well-rested can minimize the appearance of dark circles under your eyes and help you maintain the energy necessary to stay active, which in turn helps to keep you healthy. Eat well and practice self-care, making time for rest, relaxation and plenty of time with loved ones. Regardless of the laser treatment you choose, the finishing touch is always a positive, happy glow created by living well.
