Every woman wants to look her best 24/7. Sadly, that is neither practical nor possible. Some are blessed with perfect skin, but most work HARD to achieve just acceptable results. Fortunately, thanks to great advances in techniques and products, there’s a myriad of options. In the face of these options, I believe in educating my patients on what is best for them and their skin type so that they make the informed choice. Below are the three main options for treating common skin issues.
PICO Genesis (PG): This laser treatment improves the appearance of unwanted freckles, sunspots and age spots. PG uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin to return balance and radiance after a few treatments. After your initial series, further treatments to maintain your results are required. The best part? There is no downtime associated with PG!
Laser genesis and micro-needling: Both options work in a similar fashion as they stimulate natural processes such as collagen building to promote healthy-looking skin. You can have a more youthful appearance by treating conditions such as aging, fine wrinkles, and sun damage. Laser Genesis has little to no downtime and works best for active acne and facial redness. Microneedling has a downtime of about 24 hours and works best for sun damage, scars, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. Many patients begin to see results within the first few days after their initial treatment. Results will continue to improve over the next few months as your skin heals. For more problematic skin, more sessions may be required.
