It’s Almost Summer, Time for Resurfacing
- Posted on: Apr 15 2016
Summertime in the U.S. seems like it’s the official road work season. But before summer, maybe now is a good time for another type of resurfacing — your skin. At Northcoast Laser we provide laser resurfacing that improves fine lines, wrinkles, and skin tone. We use ClearLift™, a virtually painless, non-ablative approach to laser skin resurfacing.
How does laser resurfacing work?
Our ClearLift resurfacing laser creates a controlled dermal wound beneath the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin). When the laser energy is delivered into the dermis (the second layer of the skin) it converts to heat. This heat energy, while not painful at all, gives the body the impression there has been a wound in the area. It responds by creating new collagen, the skin’s basic support structure protein, and elastin, which is responsible for the skin’s suppleness, to heal the wound. This creates new, younger skin cells to rebuild areas with wrinkles, lines, and dull tone.
Treatments are fast, lasting around 20 minutes. Local anesthesia is not required, and there is no downtime.
What does ClearLift work on?
ClearLift improves fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin tone. Because its wavelengths can be adjusted very precisely, ClearLift can be used to treat areas that are typically too sensitive to treat with traditional ablative lasers, such as the delicate skin around the eyes, neck, mouth, and chest.
What does it do?
ClearLift improves skin texture and tone, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.
It keeps the skin around the eyes, nose, and jawline firm and more contoured.
