Summer will be here in no time. Prep for all of the exciting events coming your way with laser treatments that will help you put your best face forward.
One of the most effective laser treatments is a photofacial. Capable of treating superficial, benign pigmented lesions like sun damage, age spots, brown spots, red spots and Rosacea, the Nordlys system can help you get ready for the wedding, graduation and vacation plans on your calendar this season. Using light that pulses into the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, melanin absorbs the light and it is converted to heat. The heat is a powerful tool to eliminate the keratinocytes, or cells where melanin is stored. Photofacials are also used to treat common skin concerns like large pores and wrinkles.
This safe treatment can help reduce the appearance of acne by targeting bacteria lurking in the skin in about four treatments. If your skin is suffering from acne brought on by wearing a mask, photofacials are ideal. The Elipse IPL by Nordlys will not only treat current acne breakouts but can prevent future ones. By treating active lesions and preventing new acne from erupting, you’ll lessen the occurrence of scarring.
It is a breeze to remove unwanted hair with laser treatments. The Nordlys system is a fast method that is also virtually painless—a huge benefit when thinking of the more painful alternatives of waxing or tweezing. Plus, it is safe for all skin types and tones. The light that is used in this treatment is carefully controlled to ensure that the correct amount of energy is emitted to eliminate the follicle. This process provides long- lasting results. How? By using “Selective Photothermolysis,” or controlled pulses of light to penetrate the epidermis. There is melanin in the hair follicle which absorbs the light, converting it to heat, which wipes out the follicle so it cannot produce new hair. Up to six treatments may be needed for desired effects. Clinical studies reveal that after 10 years, nearly 77% of unwanted hair is still not visible.
Laser skin resurfacing is another popular way to incorporate laser treatments into your pre-summer routine. The Nordlys Ellipse laser resurfacing system is the industry standard and with the options of the Frax 1940 and Frax 1550 handpieces, it is simple to target treatment to a desired depth. The Frax 1940 is great for handling shallow, epidermal issues that deal with the skin’s texture. The Fax 1550 goes deeper to smooth fine lines and mild to moderate wrinkles. Rejuvenated skin can be yours with this non-ablative laser treatment. Since the skin is never broken, the healing process is more comfortable and fast. By using heat to focus on treatment areas, the skin’s surface is improved plus collagen production is stimulated, helping to tighten the skin over time.
