Laser Skin Resurfacing Alternatives
Laser skin resurfacing hardly has a monopoly on diminishing the appearance of age-related skin damage. Before deciding that the deteriorated condition of your skin requires the employment of a cosmetic treatment, you may try incorporating prescription skin care products into your morning routine to improve your skin’s health. Available from your local dermatologist, many of these products contain potent mixtures of vitamins and other nutrients along with other skin clarifying solutions to improve the way your skin feels as well as the way your skin looks.
If you do decide to seek an anti-aging cosmetic treatment, you have many options that are less invasive and require a shorter recovery time than laser skin resurfacing. One popular injectable product for treating fine lines and minor wrinkles in the area between the brows and around the jaw is BOTOX® Cosmetic. Injectable dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, and RadiesseTM can not only eliminate lines, but they can also give your skin a fuller, more hydrated appearance. Collagen injections and fat transfer treatments can achieve similar benefits.
A more youthful appearance can also be achieved through the use of a skin tightening procedure such as Thermage® which encourages the growth of new collagen at the lower dermis level. This procedure is non-ablative, meaning it treats the underlying layers of skin without damaging the outer layers. Non-ablative laser skin tightening procedures involve fewer painful side effects than laser skin resurfacing procedures.
For treatment of acne scarring, sun damage, and other issues involving skin texture, microdermabrasion and chemical peel can serve as viable alternative treatments.
