The natural passage of time and exterior elements can take a significant toll on the overall health of skin. It’s not uncommon for both men and women to notice the development of age spots as well as redness when skin is exposed to UV ray or harsh pollutants over an extended period of time. Genetics can also play a significant role in how and when age spots and redness begin to appear. While the development of these skin conditions is natural, it’s often far out of line with how young a person feels and the cosmetic aesthetic they’re comfortable with. When it comes to rejuvenating skin and reducing the appearance of age spots and redness, there are a variety of laser-based solutions and techniques in laser skin rejuvenation in St Louis that are offered here at the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center.
Using Intense Pulse Light Treatment (IPL) Lumecca takes an innovative laser-application approach to treating age spots or lesions. Lumecca is able to improve overall skin tone by administering photo-thermolysis through a hand-held device. Lumecca has been proven safe for use over the entire body but the majority of patients elect this form of treatment when they are hoping to reduce or remove age spots and redness on the face, arms, leg, and neck-all of which are particularly susceptible to uneven skin tone discoloration.
Patients looking for a simple, quick and convenient age spot and redness treatment often find their ideal solution with Lumecca. As an outpatient treatment, Lumecca can be administered with the added benefit of nearly no recovery or downtime required post-procedure. Lumecca can be administered from the comfort of the attending physician’s office. Once the treatment area is clearly marked, a hand-held laser device is run gently over the treatment site as it sends IPL waves through the skin to the affected area. These waves of laser energy target damaged skin cells and promote collagen production which enhances the overall tone, look and smoothness of skin while reducing the appearance of age spots. Patients that choose Lumecca often do so to treat and correct Rosacea spots as well as diminish the appearance of freckles and other hyperpigmentation.
Results and Recovery of Laser Skin Rejuvenation
While many patients experience noticeable improvements after a single Lumecca session, its common for cosmetic physicians to prescribe a series of sessions to achieve successful results. At most, patients report a slight redness or warmth at the treatment area that often disappears within a few hours following the procedure. It is highly recommended that patients remain out of the sun and away from tanning for a month following Lumecca to ensure results are successful and long-term from their laser skin rejuvenation in St Louis procedure.
PPx Laser Therapy
Incredible advancements in the field of cosmetic technology mean that patients looking to reduce or remove the visible effects of age spots on areas such as the face and hands are now faced with a variety of procedural options that speak to personal comfort and preference. While age spots are natural, they often prove to be a serious cosmetic issue for many patients. Those looking to reduce their appearance often do so to regain a more youthful appearance. For patients with more severe age spot development, a cosmetic physician may recommend
PPx Laser Therapy.
As a breakthrough aesthetic treatment, PPx Laser Therapy uses an innovative combination of pneumatic energy and broadband light to remove damaged skin cells and replace them with refreshed and smoother looking skin over time. PPx Laser treatments are often recommended for those patients looking to rejuvenate skin affected by hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries or blood vessels that result in a flushed look as well as fine facial veins. Similar to Lumecca, PPx Laser Therapy can be administered as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of a physician’s office and comes with little to no downtime or recovery period. Most patients can expect a session to last anywhere from 10 minutes to 20 minutes depending on the area being treated. While redness or warmth is experienced at the treatment site, this disappears quickly after the procedure is complete. The majority of patients undergo several sessions to achieve the desired results.
