As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and wrinkles become a commonly seen side effect of growing older. While some are lucky to naturally maintain a youthful appearance naturally for far longer than others, for some, treatments can be a great way to help reduce the signs of ageing and boost their confidence in their appearance. We are strong believers that there is no shame in turning back the clock on your appearance and here at Beauty By Laser, we have a number of treatments available to help:
The use of lasers to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles or sagging has become increasingly popular over the years, not least due to its non-surgical and non-invasive nature. The lasers we use target energy into layers of the skin that transfer to heat, and trigger the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These two proteins are to thank for firmer and toned skin and so as production reduces as we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness.
Thankfully, laser treatment of wrinkles or sagging skin is completely non-invasive and due to the use of heat, not very painful at all. The feeling has been compared to a hot stone massage in the past in terms of heat levels, and any discomfort should be minimal at most. We advise around 2-3 treatments depending on the severity and the area of choice, though this may vary.
LED Light Therapy
Using the Healite II LED light system, we can treat a number of different skin woes and conditions, and wrinkles are no exception. The system uses three different light colours with various wavelengths to treat a number of concerns including scene, inflammation, scarring, psoriasis and more, but it’s the Red LED light therapy that we utilise for fine lines and wrinkles on the face. LED light therapy is painless, non-invasive and can help to regular oil production, encourage collagen production and reduce redness, all while giving your skin the boost it needs to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Perhaps one of the most well-known treatments for fighting the signs of ageing, Botox and Fillers are effective treatments that, when administered by qualified experts, can provide natural and long-lasting results. There is often a stigma surrounding fillers, but shouldn’t be looked over for those seeking noticeable and longer-lasting results. We have a fully insured and approved Advanced Aesthetic Medicine Practitioner on staff to ensure that all injections and fillers are administered with expert care and attention to detail for the most natural results possible.
Both Botox and dermal fillers only require less than an hour of your time, are minimally invasive and don’t require an anaesthetic. You can also benefit from minimal recovery time, getting back to your daily routine more or less straight away. Results, however, differ slightly in terms of when you’re likely to see visible changes. For Botox, you’re likely to see the final and full result in around 2-3 weeks following the injections, while the results of dermal fillers will appear sooner, in around 7-10 days.
Another treatment we offer for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening is the Plasma Elite pen, a device designed to help treat a number of concerns including lines, wrinkles, crows feet, acne scarring, skin tags and more. The device delivers a stable plasma arc that delivers at exactly the right frequency through a tiny needle. This creates heat which tightens the skin and firms it up, shrinking the skin fibres and boosting collagen production. Ultimately, this leads to wrinkle reduction and removal of any excess skin where sagging is occurring.
