If you’re in Lawrence, New York, and you’d like to learn more about skin rejuvenation, call or use the online scheduler to book an appointment.
With each passing year, there are a number of forces that lead to tired, sagging skin. The first is simple wear-and-tear. Your skin performs a critical role in shielding your body, and it does its job admirably, protecting you from exposure to the sun, as well as fighting off bacteria. To do this, your skin is constantly renewing itself on a cellular level, replacing tired and damaged skin cells with new ones. There comes a point, however, when your body can no longer keep up with the damage.
Second, the collagen in your skin naturally wanes with time. As the foundational support for your skin, collagen is responsible for the elasticity and tone in your tissue, so when its production naturally slows, you’re left with skin that doesn’t bounce back as it once did.
Finally, as a result of the loss of support, the thin layer of fat underneath your skin begins to succumb to gravity and migrate downward, leaving you with hollowed cheeks and sagging jowls.
Using the Elite+® laser system by Cynosure, the team at Arsenio Medical sends laser energy below your skin, without harming the surface area, in order to create a mild healing response. This response typically comes in the form of ramped-up collagen production, which tightens and tones your skin, reducing wrinkles and fine lines in the treated areas.
The doctors can also use the laser technology to break up areas of hyperpigmentation, such as sun spots and age spots. As your pigment absorbs the laser energy, it breaks up and your body flushes it out through your lymphatic system, leaving blemish-free skin in its wake.
Since the Elite+ works with your natural resources, individual results may vary, and you need to allow time for your body to respond. Most patients at Arsenio Medical see gradual results over the course of several weeks, with optimal results at 6-12 weeks.
Your results should last as long as you protect your skin, and when aging begins to catch up with you again, you can go back in for a follow-up treatment to maintain your great results.
