Replenish Your Skin With Fraxel® Laser Treatment and More

Cold air and low humidity are the perfect recipe for irritated, dry skin that can quickly take away your confidence. You don’t have to wait for summer to get hydrated, glowing skin. You can start revitalizing your skin right now, with the help of our facial laser treatments at Cosmetic Laser Centers℠.

Even if you have yet to escape winter weather, your skin can. Here’s how to make your winter skin a thing of the past, and get started with our services in cosmetic esthetics.

How Winter Weather Can Impact Your Skin

Cold, dry winter weather has a huge effect on your complexion. Not only does it remove moisture from your skin and cause flaking and rough patches, it may even result in rosacea, or facial redness. Fine lines and wrinkles can also become more noticeable in the winter, giving your skin an aged appearance.

With these conditions, it’s vital to supply your skin with the moisture it needs to maintain a radiant, flawless look. Facial laser treatments are a great place to start.

Treating Winter Skin at Cosmetic Laser Centers

Our services in cosmetic esthetics can bring your skin back to life and deliver you with an all new, enhanced look. We offer a selection of treatments – including Fraxel® laser and IPL – that will address your skin concerns without affecting the surface of your skin.

  • Fraxel® Laser Treatment
    We offer Fraxel® DUAL laser treatments. This laser is a one-of-a-kind skin resurfacing tool that uses deep, microscopic treatment zones to resurface and restore damaged skin. These microscopic punctures stimulate the skin’s healing process, increasing its collagen and elastin.

This boost in collagen and regrowth of healthy skin cells improves fine lines and wrinkles, and results in a more youthful appearance.

To better meet your individual needs, we offer two treatment wavelengths. The 1550 nm is more appropriate for wrinkles and texture concerns, while the 1927 nm can help with dark spots and sun damage.

You may see some effects right after your first session, but it typically takes four to six facial laser treatments to reach optimal results. To allow for proper healing, you can expect each treatment to be scheduled four to six weeks apart.

Because the Fraxel® DUAL laser is non-ablative, this treatment requires minimal downtime. You’ll be able to return to your normal skincare routine about a week after your procedure.

  • IPL Treatment
    IPL, or intense pulsed light, treatments use scattered and unfocused wavelengths of light to reach your skin’s deepest layer. This light energy heats up problematic skin cells and breaks them down. Your body then naturally absorbs the damaged cells over time.

IPL lasers are a great solution for sun spots or age spots, facial spider veins, and rosacea concerns. These treatments work relatively quickly, giving you noticeable results in as little as two weeks.

Four to six treatments are usually necessary to reach your desired results. We also recommend a yearly maintenance appointment to ensure your skin stays in its best condition and to treat any new concerns.

IPL treatments only take about 15-30 minutes to complete. After your treatment, you can immediately return to your daily activities, making it a great option for patients who are always on the go.

Which Treatment Is Right for Me?

Fraxel DUAL® laser and IPL treatments are just two effective ways to repair your winter skin. When you book a consultation with one of our knowledgeable medical providers, you’ll find out which treatment can successfully help with your unique concerns.
