We love that first line in the Rolling Stones song, Mother’s Little Helper:
What a drag it is getting old…
Because of recent advances in medical face laser treatment, looking old is becoming more of an option and less of a circumstance. The great thing about modern day laser treatment is that it is effective at a deep, cellular level and regenerates your skin’s ability to heal naturally. With a few treatments, it can quite literally remove years from your appearance.
But when is it time to act?
Signs it’s time for face laser treatment
Taking an honest inventory of one’s skin can reveal some painful truths.
There are many hints and clues to knowing it’s time for face laser treatment, but when you’re looking into one’s face in the mirror every day, perhaps several times per day, it’s often difficult to spot them. As we age, the cells that produce proteins integral to the healing of skin, such as collagen and elastin, eventually slow down until human skin loses the ability to regenerate. Too much exposure to the sun expedites this process.
Thus, there is a reduction in skin elasticity and strength, resulting in increased laxity and the clues present themselves. The names are cute and catchy, but the reality of wrinkles is sobering.
- Crow’s feet: The outside edges of one’s eyes.
- Marionette lines: On the corners of one’s mouth which make someone appear to be frowning.
- Worry lines: Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead.
- Laugh lines/smile lines: The wrinkle that runs from the corners of one’s mouth to the sides of the nose.
- Tear troughs: Dark circles under the eyes.
For wrinkles such as crow’s feet, marionette and laugh lines, Medical Laser Technologies offers the GentleYAG and the GentleMAX, proven face laser treatment procedures that deliver optimal results. The GentleYAG and GentleMAX are not only effective solutions for lines and wrinkles, but also skin rejuvenation.
