There are many methods available to achieve a more youthful appearance. With advances in science and technology, we really are spoilt for choice these days.
However, it can be said that some techniques will work better than others.
Makeup, lotions and potions, for example, are good at concealing the problems and can make us feel better, but as they sit on the skin they do not do a lot for skin texture or vitality.
It is best to go a little deeper in the dermis to prevent and correct issues, as well as keeping a good skin regimen.
One method to get fantastic long lasting results is by laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing.
Laser Resurfacing at PHI
One of the most popular treatments for skin rejuvenation is laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. Using an ablative laser, Dr Tapan Patel can remove dead and diseased skin cells, revealing a fresh, revived look.
The CO2 laser delivers long pulses of light energy to penetrate the epidermis, which simultaneously encouraging collagen production. Collagen is a key protein found in skin that gives it strength, and renewed collagen synthesis improves the texture, tone, and laxity of skin over time, as well as reducing the appearance of scarring. The results achieved can be outstanding.
