Start Now for a Year of Continual Beauty
La Jolla and the general area of San Diego is filled with beauty. Wherever we go, we are treated to ocean breezes, golden sunsets, and blue skies. We can’t forget all the gorgeous people who have chosen to call our area home. When we observe beauty all around us, it only makes sense that we want to radiate beauty from within, as well. If one of your goals for the new year is to feel better about your appearance, the team at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic can help. You may be surprised to discover that skin resurfacing may be perfect for your needs.
As a reputable laser clinic, our facility has numerous devices, all of which have been carefully selected based on their track record of success; and by success, we mean comfort, safety, and predictable results. One that we want to discuss here is the FX laser by Lumenis.
Fractional CO2 Resurfacing for the Win
Laser resurfacing is not new. The original form of CO2 resurfacing was ablative in nature. This isn’t bad, necessarily, just different. When ablative resurfacing is conducted, there is significant downtime with noticeable peeling and redness. Results are astounding, but many people prefer a gentler approach that will get them back into their busy life more quickly. This is part of the magic of fractional laser resurfacing.
In our coastal office, we perform ActiveFX and DeepFX treatments. Each technique uses what is called Bridge Therapy, which creates a dot-like pattern on the skin. In between dots of penetration by laser beams are “bridges” of skin that is fully intact. After an ActiveFX or DeepFX treatment, patients can expect to notice visible results right away and also progressive improvement for up to six months after treatment.
Fractional laser resurfacing doesn’t just remove dead and damaged cells from the uppermost dermis. Our treatment also provokes collagen proliferation. With healthy new collagen infusing into the skin for a prolonged period of time, multiple improvements may occur simultaneously. These include:
- Smoother, softer skin.
- More noticeable facial contouring resulting from dermal tightening.
- Tighter skin on the neck, resulting in fewer neck bands.
- A decrease in vertical lip lines.
- More radiant skin with fewer sun spots.
- Less visible scarring from acne and other conditions.
