How can I avoid wrinkles?
Many patients who come into our office ask the important question, “How can I prevent aging skin?” Just like there is no fountain of youth, there is unfortunately no way to completely avoid wrinkles as we age. However, there are a number of things that you can do in your everyday life to help combat wrinkles and prevent premature or excess wrinkle formation.
- Stay out of the sun during peak hours and wear a daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, rain or shine
- Stay hydrated
- Eat a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables, which are loaded with youthfulness-promoting antioxidants and other protective nutrients
- Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption
- Work with the anti-aging experts at Thrive to develop a customized skin care regimen that helps protect and restore your skin
What is the medical term for dry skin?
The medical term for dry skin is “xerosis,” which stems from “xero,” the Greek word for dry. While dry skin is very common, it can become more than just a nuisance – it can dramatically affect your everyday life and cause itching, pain, and embarrassment. If you are suffering from excessive dry skin, we encourage you to talk to the experts at Thrive about steps you can take at home to restore moisture to your skin, as well as treatments available at our office to help reduce dryness and bring back a healthy glow.
What does laser skin rejuvenation treat?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a relatively new advancement in skin care technology that has exploded in popularity because it offers many of the similar results non-invasively that patients could previously only achieve with intensive plastic surgeries. Several light- and laser-based therapies are available at Thrive to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, such as:
- Scars from acne or injuries
- Brown spots, such as age spots, unwanted freckles, or sun spots
- Sagging or droopy skin
- Skin that is sun-damaged
- Fine lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet or forehead wrinkles
How does the laser rejuvenation treatment work?
Laser skin rejuvenation works by using powerful light energy to remove the topmost layer of skin and reveal the younger, healthier skin that is hiding beneath the surface – much like a deep exfoliation or peel. The laser also stimulates collagen remodeling in the skin to help rejuvenate your skin from the inside out, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and tightening and firming loose skin.
How many treatments will I need and how often?
The number of laser skin treatments that you need varies depending on the skin condition you are treating, the current state of your skin, which laser therapy you are using, and your desired results. The skin care experts at Thrive will conduct a thorough evaluation of your skin and talk at length with you about your medical history, treatment preferences, and cosmetic goals to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
Does laser skin rejuvenation cause scarring?
There is a slight risk of scarring, but we use a combination of advanced laser technologies, our expertise, and a comprehensive consultation prior to your treatment to minimize this risk. We will discuss all the potential side effects of laser rejuvenation prior to your treatment so you can make a fully informed decision.
How much does laser skin rejuvenation cost?
Laser skin rejuvenation costs vary, depending on several individual factors. We will discuss your treatment cost estimate during your consultation, along with the various payment options we offer, to ensure that your treatment plan fits within your budget.
