Non-invasive Layered LightÂ? treatments help reverse skin aging.

Dr. Douglas J. Key, founder of the Key Laser Institute for Aesthetic Medicine, was recently granted a United States Patent for his breakthrough anti-aging process, Layered Light Therapy. Using a combination of non-invasive light, laser and energy techniques, Layered Light can reduce the visible signs of sun surface aging, pigmentation (age spots, melasma), blush or rosacea redness, and fine lines and wrinkles.

"My holistic approach to treatment combines the beauty of form with the healing aspects of medicine," says Dr. Key. "I am interested in restoring skin to its own natural best and providing an alternative to the surgical procedures of the past. This new patent validates our commitment to innovative research."

Dr. Key has devoted more than 15 years of research to the patented Layered Light treatment, which uses multiple types of lasers and intense pulsed light sources to treat and prevent skin aging. Layered Light therapy reaches into both the surface and deeper layers of the skin to help restore, soften lines and remove the effects of sun aging.
