What are the Best Laser Treatments for Younger Looking Skin

One thing men and women all can agree on is what it feels like to look in the mirror and wish we had younger looking skin. When our reflection in the mirror no longer reflects the smooth and wrinkle-free skin we had in high school, our mind begins racing on how we can turn back time. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute can provide a variety of solutions to make turning back time nearly a reality.

Highly recommended laser therapies include DOT, Fraxel treatments and high frequency laser treatment. Learn more about each one to see which one is the best fit for your wants and needs.


DOT Therapy

Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) Therapy helps rejuvenate and resurface the skin. Winkles, scars, stretch marks and sun damage can be reversed with just one DOT therapy session. During a DOT treatment one specific area is targeted. This way, the rest of the skin nearby is not affected and enables a quicker recovery. As the hot laser touches the skin it almost immediately improves the skin elasticity and encourages new collagen production.

As the damage is erased, a younger appearance is achieved. One session lasts 20-30 minutes and minimal downtime will be needed after the procedure. Similar to DOT Therapy is a treatment called fraxel.


Fraxel Treatments

If your priorities are younger looking skin, no surgery and minimal recovery time, fraxel treatments may be the way to go. Fraxel treatments help facial tone and texture damaged from the sun or simply aging improve. In just one treatment you will notice younger looking skin without a dramatic change in your appearance. A microscopic laser works deep down in your skin to help promote new collagen growth. Like DOT therapy, it works on a small section of skin allowing for a quicker recovery time.

Fraxel Re:pair is best for those who want to improve pigmentation in their skin, eliminate skin redness or smooth wrinkle lines. Fraxel Re:store is meant more for those who want to treat their damaged or aging skin. It works best on the face, neck, chest and hands.


What is a High Frequency Laser Treatment?

Wrinkles, acne and scars can finally disappear during a high frequency laser treatment. A high frequency electrode is applied to the skin and a mild electrical current passed through to the area being treated. A small shocking feeling will occur as the blood vessels push away toxins and increase blood circulation. Through this increased blood circulation, new cells are revived helping to make your skin look fresh, soft and smoother than ever before.

Whether your goal is to reverse aging skin, resurface your face or fix facial sun damage, each of these treatments can provide what you are looking for. Once you have determined which laser therapy is right for you it is time to get in touch with a dermatologist. If you are in the Bloomington, Illinois and surrounding areas, get in contact with Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute. We look forward to helping turn back time with you.
