The anti-aging market is booming today and is not slowing down. The broadening market has led to increased demand for both male and female procedures that offer visible results with little discomfort or downtime. Laser and light-based platforms have developed with market trends. The approach to anti-aging treatments is often two-fold. The first goal is to provide effective exfoliation that removes dead, dry outer skin cells, leaving smoother, more radiant skin underneath. The second step is to work under the skin’s surface to stimulate production of collagen and elastin, for long-lasting results.
Anti-aging treatments are designed to improve the overall appearance of the skin, however a vast choice of treatment options are available. Conditions that can be treated within anti-aging treatments include:
Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are present at all times even when the face is still.
Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear and often deepen with facial movements or expressions.
Pigmentation: Freckles, sun spots or other darkened patches from sun exposure.
Vascular conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin – can make the face appear ‘flushed’
Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structure that results in a loss of skin firmness
Many options exist for skin rejuvenation such as the Iris, MCL-31, Pro Yellow and Tixel are great to undo the aging process.
The Iris Q-Switch Nd:YAG laser is a non-ablative device that employs photoacoustic energy to gently penetrate the skin in order to stimulate new collagen. The treatment improves the quality and texture of the skin through the subtle heating of dermal layers, which stimulate collagen growth. The result is a gradual, natural improvement that shrinks pore size and improves fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
Skin resurfacing with the MCL-31 Dermablate laser or Tixel device is able to achieve dramatic results for anti-aging in the face, neck, décolletage and hands for lines, wrinkles and sun damage.
The Pro Yellow 577nm laser offers superior treatment outcomes for vascular lesions such as redness, distinct veins and background blushing.
