Laser Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Resurfacing and Wrinkle Reduction Chicago
After a thorough evaluation, you and Dr. Casas will decide what long term plan suits your lifestyle, time commitment and budget to reverse the signs of aging and to prevent unnecessary signs of aging. A combination of options will be recommended and may include skin care procedures, minimally invasive procedures, surgical and non-surgical procedures or other facial procedures.
The Palomar pulsed light device safely delivers energy to targeted tiny blood vessels (telangiectasias) and pigmented spots (sun damage, age spots, dyschromia) to destroy them. The IPL treatment is called selective photo thermolysis because the handpiece can be placed on your skin to target different chromophores in your skin. This process allows the wavelengths of light to clear tiny blood vessels and pigment spots by forcing the hemoglobin in the tiny vessels and the melanin in the pigmented age spot to absorbthe laser or light energy and heat and damage the spots without damaging the skin. Dark spots get damaged (desquamate_ and scab and fall off in 3 to 7 days. The tiny vessels in the treated area become pale and then the skin returns to normal appearance in 10-14 days. Laser skin treatments help provide good to excellent results with minimal to moderate treatment pain, and only a few days of downtime. These laser treatments can help reduce visible facial vessels, as well as diffuse redness and pigmented spots and thereby improving the look of your skin.
