If you’d like to reduce the signs of aging but don’t want to undergo plastic surgery, the good news is you have many minimally-invasive options to choose from. Technology for non-surgical facial treatment continues to evolve, and NuAge Spa is pleased to offer advanced Photofractional Laser Treatment in Ladera Ranch.
Created to address the earliest signs of aging, Lumenis® PhotoFractional™ Laser Treatment combines the benefits of intense pulsed light treatment (IPL) with the power of non-ablative skin resurfacing (ResurFX) to address a range of skin concerns, such as age/sun spots, pigmentation, fine lines, texture, blood vessels, redness, large pores, and other skin conditions. Clients can expect minimal downtime with visible results comparable to other, more aggressive laser treatments.
Who Is a Candidate for Photofractional Laser Treatments?
This procedure is safe to treat a variety of face and skin condition, including:
- Stretch marks or striae on the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and chest
- Pigmentation, and age and sun spots
- Vascular lesions
- Uneven texture and skin tone
- Surgical and nonsurgical scars
Individuals looking for natural results and willing to invest the time necessary to treat their skin will benefit from photofractional laser treatment. Before undergoing treatment, clients are encouraged to schedule a consultation to discuss skincare goals and expectations and create a customized treatment plan.
How Do IPL And ResurFX Work Together?
IPL and ResurFX were designed to work together as a complete skin rejuvenation solution for both skin tone and texture concerns. IPL technology works to even skin tone, and treat pigmentation, rosacea, broken capillaries, and other skin blemishes. ResurFX treatment is a painless, non-ablative skin resurfacing laser treatment that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores, smooths skin texture, and stimulates collagen production. Increased collagen production is key to restoring youthful-looking skin.
Is Treatment Painful?
Before beginning the procedure, the nurse or physician will apply a topical numbing cream to the face to minimize discomfort. Sessions may last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the skin care concerns being addressed.
What Is Recovery Like After Photofractional Laser Treatments in Ladera Ranch?
After treatment, clients may experience temporary swelling that should resolve after a few hours. Redness, however, may last for a few days. There is no downtime required, and clients can resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
Recovery time is short and relatively pain-free. Clients will be instructed to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments, and wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Once the skin has completely recovered from treatment, clients should continue to wear SPF 15 or higher every day for long-term protection.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Clients may notice an improvement in skin tone and pigmentation after the first session, but will usually require a series of three to five treatments in 2- to 6-week intervals for full results. Some clients will continue to see improvements in their skin for up to six months after treatment.
