Aging, sun exposure, lifestyle, heredity, and environmental pollutants all contribute variably to the tell-tale signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, tan/brown “age spots”, small visible blood vessels / veins, surface tone or textural irregularity, and more worrisome, pre-cancers.
At Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute, these changes, as well as other discolorations/birthmarks/scars and facial redness associated with visible blood vessels of Rosacea are easily and effectively treated via one or more no downtime Photofacials. Photofacials (& PhotoBody) are safe for all face/body areas & most skin types.
Gentle, safe, non-invasive, no downtime Photofacials are ideal for an active lifestyle.
At Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute, our Sciton Broad Band Light device uses an innovative, dual flash-lamp intense pulsed light (IPL) technology that is the gold standard in intense pulsed light therapy. As opposed to other IPLs, successful results can often be accomplished in shorter, fewer treatments as a result of BBL’s technological advancements and customizable treatment parameters.
BBL therapy may also be helpful for recalcitrant acne, hair removal and skin tightening with infrared SkinTyte. Poikiloderma (blotchy red/brown sun damaged condition of neck / upper chest) and stria (stretch marks) are also effectively treated with BBL.
A 532 Epidermal Face Peel via our Spectra VRM Nd:Yag Laser provides photofacial-like results in only one or two treatments, but is associated with one to two days of healing “down-time”. Indications are also similar, but only skin types 1 and 2 are candidates.
Other alternatives to photofacial treatments include:
Laser Resurfacing options may accomplish quicker, more dramatic results, but are associated with a variable amount of healing related downtime. Chemical peel options may also be associated with some minimal healing associated downtime. Neither affects vascular lesions (red spots, small visible blood vessels, etc.).
Photofacials, SkinTyte & Resurfacing can be combined to address multiple cosmetic concerns. Also, more effective lifting / tightening with Ultherapy ultrasound may be separately beneficial. Other adjunct procedures include Botox or Dysport (and Wrinkle Fillers).
