Meeting your daily responsibilities while keeping track of your aesthetic needs is a challenge that many people face regularly. Thankfully, you have different options for treating various skin conditions if you find yourself wanting to make changes. At our office, we use cutting-edge technology that is proven to be safe and effective.
For example, Lumenis AcuPulse laser resurfacing in Fort Worth is now considered by many to be the gold standard for laser-driven cosmetic correction. Powerful enough to deliver results with high patient satisfaction and gentle enough to use for in-office treatments, this short procedure is flexible, yet powerful.
Lumenis AcuPulse treatment involves a fractionated CO2 laser that creates microscopic channels in the skin by heating the water inside your tissue and vaporizing the affected areas. The surrounding cells are then heated to a lower temperature, initiating the coagulation or clotting process to prevent bleeding. These tiny wounds trigger the body’s healing process, initiating the production of collagen and elastin to thicken and tighten your skin. New, healthy cells replace the damaged ones, which results in tighter, more youthful skin.
If you have further questions about the science behind Lumenis AcuPulse laser treatments, Jennifer and Dr. Steele can provide more information and address concerns.
Lumenis AcuPulse is versatile, which means it treats a wide variety of cosmetic issues and skin conditions. The fractionated CO2 laser works to create noticeable enhancements for both men and women, with minimal downtime.
Statistics show that Lumenis lasers are an effective and innovative treatment for severely damaged skin lesions like surgical or injury-related scars. Additionally, this fractionated CO2 laser can be used to correct deep acne scars, improving skin texture and tone.
A syringoma is a benign cosmetic concern that appears as a small, discolored bump on the skin’s surface, usually in clusters. These lumps typically develop around the neck or eyes, but they can grow anywhere on the body. While these lesions are not harmful, they can be treated with laser therapy for an improved cosmetic result.
Lumenis lasers make extremely minute punctures that penetrate deeper than other skin resurfacing methods can. This means that the fractionated CO2 laser can more effectively reduce both fine facial lines and stubborn, deep wrinkles.
Rhinophyma is a progressive condition that causes bulbous growths to form on the nose. The complication can severely affect one’s confidence and quality of life, due to its disfiguring nature. Fortunately, fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing has shown to be an effective treatment for this disorder. Lumenis AcuPulse treatment can treat this thickening of nasal skin safely and swiftly.
Prior to your laser treatment, a topical local anesthetic cream is applied to the skin to numb the areas. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) if needed for further patient comfort. Once the patient’s skin is adequately numbed, Jennifer will set up the Lumenis AcuPulse and start the laser resurfacing. The treatment itself usually lasts around 45-60 minutes.
Afterward, most patients say that they feel like they have a minor sunburn. The outermost layer of skin will slough off for a few days following the procedure. To care for the affected region, patients can use a gentle cleanser and mild ointment. Anyone recovering from a Lumenis AcuPulse session should avoid wearing makeup for a few days and stay out of the sun for several weeks.
Dr. Steele and his Fort Worth team will discuss any further aftercare methods when a patient comes to the office for their Lumenis AcuPulse laser resurfacing consultation.
