Laser skin treatment in Las VegasNovember has been celebrated as National Healthy Skin Month® since 1997. This annual event focuses on the importance of good skincare and urges Americans to pay better attention to their skin and improve their daily habits. Wearing sunscreen, reevaluating your skincare routine, and eating a nutrient-rich diet can help your complexion. However, these changes focus on preventing skin concerns. No matter how diligent you are about washing and moisturizing your face, natural aging, genetics, and environmental factors will affect your skin eventually.

Summers in the sun, smoking, poor diet, and aging can all cause facial wrinkles, volume loss, sunspots, acne scars, and loose skin. Dr. Stephen M. Miller in Las Vegas offers non-surgical skin treatments to turn back time and restore healthy skin over the holidays.

Profound® RF Non-Surgical Facelift

Facelift surgery is invasive and requires general anesthesia and extensive recovery. Profound® radiofrequency (RF) non-surgical facelift can provide similar results without the scalpel, incisions, and sutures. This RF device uses heat energy to stimulate skin remodeling with new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These youthful proteins and compounds in your skin keep your skin taut and smooth but slow down as you age. Profound® RF increases the production of these elements for healthier, more luminous skin. The device treats facial volume loss, double chins, wrinkles, loose skin, and sagging jowls.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a popular and effective way to improve skin tone and texture, especially for skin damaged by acne, sun exposure, or injury. Dr. Miller uses a wand-like device that emits high-energy light beams to vaporize the surface layer of your skin and reduce lines, wrinkles, scarring, and discoloration. Laser skin resurfacing stimulates new collagen for tighter skin and reveals softer, smoother, younger-looking skin underneath.

This laser treatment requires about 10 to 14 days of recovery with detailed skin care instructions, such as avoiding makeup, applying ointments, and using sunblock. Patients are encouraged to spend time in bed resting after laser skin resurfacing.

Fraxel Laser Treatment

Fractional Deep Dermal Ablation (FDDA™) or Fraxel Repair is a fractionated CO2 laser treatment that breaks up damaged skin without harming surrounding skin tissue. This technology is less abrasive than traditional laser skin resurfacing because the laser creates channels in the skin for your body to fill in with new collagen instead of removing the skin’s surface layer. Fraxel Repair is a popular option for skin health because it provides dramatic results with less downtime than ablative laser treatment.

IPL Photorejuvenation

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment is another non-surgical laser treatment that improves skin health and appearance. IPL photorejuvenation removes freckles and age spots and improves skin texture. This technology is best for facial redness and discoloration because it targets pigments in the skin and obliterates them, raising patches to the skin’s surface where they slough off.

Multiple treatments are necessary for best results with IPL photorejuvenation, but most people see visible improvement after their first session as the patches diminish and disappear. IPL treatment offers a faster recovery than other laser technologies with little to no downtime.
