We love putting our best, flawless face forward. We also love feeling as good on the inside as we do on the outside. That’s why I offer the most effective rejuvenation techniques at Key Laser Institute that will make you feel good on the inside and even better on the outside. Although there are many products and procedures to choose from, here are four of my favorite treatments that offer relief from dry, damaged skin; deep frown lines, wrinkles and bags; and those pesky dimples on the derriere.
Mom always said to take our vitamins. Well this sage advice also applies to maintaining healthy skin. One of the most effective ingredients for dehydrated, damaged skin is Vitamin A which can be found in a variety of skincare treatments such as Retinol products that exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Retinol repairs your skin texture, sloughs off discolorations and stimulates cell turnover which works on smoothing out wrinkles. Retinol is available in three strengths and is found in many of our products at Key Laser. I remind my patients to also wear sunscreen when using a retinol product as the skin is more sensitive to the sun.
Want to get your glow on in a relatively short time? I love ThermiSmooth for just this purpose. In fact, ThermiSmooth uses radiofrequency to heat the skin and delivers a targeted treatment that reduces lines, tightens wrinkles, and helps smooth and tighten sagging skin. The treatment takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the area being addressed. Three to six treatments may be required, but it’s a small price to pay for a procedure that tightens and smooths without a scalpel in sight. ThermiSmooth also works on the lips, around the eyes, and the chest/décolletage. There may be some swelling and redness around the treated area, but patients can return to their full activities immediately.
Collagen is a key component of youthful looking skin, but it diminishes as you age and can leave your face looking hollow and older. I like dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and others that restore the natural youthful curves of the face. Clinical studies have demonstrated that fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid can actually stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. A favorite quick fix of ours is injecting fillers into the expression lines that bracket the mouth and often become more prominent with age. The results are instantaneous and can last up to nine months. Your smile is a beautiful thing, but it shouldn’t reveal your age!
Dreaded cellulite and the resulting dimples on our thighs and buttocks are the bane of so many –regardless of health and fitness levels, but it doesn’t have to be this way. At Key Laser, we tackle cellulite with Cellfina, an FDA approved treatment that uses a proprietary technology to release the fibrous bands which cause cellulite. I enjoy telling my patients that they can expect approximately twenty five dimples to be removed in just one hour and they will start to see results within about three days.
The best part of what I do is helping people be their most beautiful self to maintain a healthy youthful appearance. These are just some of my favorite treatments, but Key Laser Institute offers a full range of the most modern tools and technologies to revise, rejuvenate and refresh your appearance in no time at all.
