In this day and age, with all of the advancements in non-surgical procedures, the days of going under the knife or receiving injections to address wrinkles and other unsightly skin issues could possibly be coming to an end. In this article we will touch on 3 innovative treatments that you should consider before deciding on cosmetic surgery.
#1 Broad Band Light (BBL) Therapy
There have been a lot of advancements in this particular treatment over the last decade. It may seem like something more likely out of a cheesy science fiction novel than your local practitioners catalog of procedures, but it works. By using a specific frequency of light in intervals and heating the epidermis as well as the dermis and tissues below, this treatment can be very effective at reducing the appearance of certain skin abnormalities. Some BBL technology has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with increased lifespan, longevity, and aging. It is well known to be non-invasive and is often considered quite a comfortable procedure as well. There are many applications for BBL including the effective treatment of persistent acne, skin tightening and even hair removal. All in all, this cutting edge technology is certainly worth a look.
#2 Laser Skin Peels
Though these treatments are slightly more invasive as they require a topical anesthetic, they still require very little down time and are considered comfortable. So what is the aim of a laser skin peel and how does it differ from a chemical peel? For starters, chemical peels can be a bit unpredictable and everybody’s skin reacts differently to chemicals, so a laser skin peel is widely considered safer and more predictable. The aim of a skin peel is to bring back the luminance of the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin. Since the laser is operated by a highly trained practitioner and can be tuned perfectly for intensity, the results tend to be quite a bit better for patients. It is often called a “weekend peel” as you will be able to return to work with glowing skin by Monday if you receive the treatment on Friday.
#3 Hybrid Combo Treatment
This treatment is next level for sure. It utilizes both a hybrid fractional laser and broadband light therapy in the same session. When it comes to skin resurfacing, it doesn’t get better than a hybrid fractional laser as it targets the designated area with both the ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. This allows for a fraction of the downtime while achieving superior results, all in a comfortable non-invasive treatment. It can be used for many skin concerns and problems including sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, birthmarks and much more.
We live in a world of constant innovation. So before you decide on an expensive and often painful surgical procedure, injection, or potentially dangerous chemical peel, consider finding a practitioner in your area that offers broadband light therapy, laser skin peels and hybrid combo treatments. Your skin and your purse will thank you later!
