Advanced laser based techniques offer an effective alternative to patients who want to rejuvenate skin appearance without involving plastic surgery. Some of the cutting edge laser technologies available today to mitigate the signs of aging include Laser Genesis and Cutera xeo.
Richards Cosmetic Surgery is equipped with both of these advanced laser skin rejuvenation systems. Standout and salient board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV and other suburbs and towns in the southeastern part of this state.
How does it Work?
Laser skin resurfacing techniques at Dr. Richards’ practice involve the use of fractionated CO2 lasers that can precisely remove the topmost layers of damaged skin to reveal smoother and more youthful skin without using cosmetic surgery. The advantage with a fractionated laser beam is that the light is rapidly pulsed, which allows for minimal heat exposure to the skin and enables the healthy surrounding tissue to be preserved.
The laser heat penetrates into the deeper tissue to trigger fresh collagen production. This volumizes the skin from within, improves pronounced creases and wrinkles on the surface, and creates significantly age-defying outcomes for the skin.
The laser skin resurfacing procedure involves high precision, and can mitigate the effect of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, reverse the clock on the complexion, and reveal younger looking skin that lies underneath the top damaged layers. The CO2 laser can also lessen the appearance of various skin imperfections such as facial scars.
In addition to correction of moderate to deep wrinkles and lines, laser skin resurfacing can also treat conditions such as photo damage, uneven pigmentation, pre-cancerous spots, and benign lesions.
Laser Genesis treatment does not cause any damage to the surrounding healthy skin and tissue. The procedure can be performed without anesthesia. It will take about 45 minutes to complete one treatment session. During the procedure, the patient will experience gentle warming sensation as the laser device is moved across the affected sites.
Following the treatment session, the patient may have a warm, tingling sensation in the treated area for about 30 minutes. Slight redness may occur in some cases, which will resolve within a few hours. In any case, the Laser Genesis skin resurfacing procedure involves no downtime, and the patient can return to their regular activities right after the treatment session.
Most patients will require a series of three to five treatments spaced a month apart to achieve optimal results. This treatment plan should be followed by quarterly treatments to maintain and extend the aesthetic benefits. The procedure can also be performed safely during summer months.
With the stimulation of natural collagen production and renewed skill cell growth, the early signs of aging can be effectively eliminated with laser skin resurfacing using Laser Genesis. The treatment will restore a healthy and youthful complexion and revitalize the skin appearance. Acne scars, rosacea, enlarged pores, and pigmentation problems can also be addressed with this treatment.
