Non Surgical Cosmetic Treatments More Effective Than Facelift

Share Article

Millions of Americans want to erase signs of aging skin including fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and dark circles or baggy eyelids. However, for today's more active population, the prolonged healing time involved with conventional laser, chemical peel, or facelift surgery is not practical. Fractional laser resurfacing combined with injectable fillers is making facial cosmetic surgery obsolete.

It's also the best treatment I have found for acne scarring.

A new laser therapy treatment is making it possible to sculpt away the fine lines and unsightly sun spots. How? By slightly heating the skin, collagen growth is promoted in the dermis, causing the skin to repair itself.

The Active FX fractional CO2 laser was developed in response to a growing trend toward less invasive resurfacing procedures. After this laser procedure, patients say they look younger with just five days of “social” down time. The beauty is this technology can achieve a refreshed, youthful looking face with less cost, risk and recovery time than conventional cosmetic surgery or deep chemical peels. A single, non surgical treatment with the Active FX laser provides dramatic and immediate results that will last several years.

For patients seeking a less invasive and highly effective skin rejuvenation treatment, Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Robin Fleck, Medical Director of Body Oasis Laser Cosmetic Solutions, in Prescott, Arizona now offers the Active FX CO2 fractional laser, a skin resurfacing laser featuring a unique setting that treats wrinkles and provides facial and neck tightening with only one pass, for a faster recovery. The procedure can be done in less than 30 minutes in the dermatologist’s office with just a topical anesthetic. Fine lines, wrinkles and age spots are removed, tightening the skin and leaving younger looking skin in just a few days.

“I'm very excited to be able to offer my patients fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. Age spots and wrinkles are quickly replaced by healthy appearing skin with this antiaging tool. In addition, the Active FX laser effectively treats dark circles under the eyes and lax eyelid skin at a fraction of the cost of eyelid surgery,” observes Dr. Fleck. “It's also the best treatment I have found for acne scarring.”

To get even more bang for the rejuvenation buck, combining the fractional laser with injectable fillers like Radiesse is key. “I routinely see patients lose ten years off their appearance with fractional laser resurfacing followed by Radiesse injections,” notes Dr. Fleck. “The injectable fillers can do more in a twenty minute session, than a surgical facelift.” The reason is that fillers replace lost facial volume rather than merely reposition the skin. With aging, many people lose soft tissue in the cheeks just under the eyelids, resulting in a flat or hollow looking appearance with dark circles or baggy eyelids. “Fillers correct these issues immediately and are considerably more affordable than cosmetic surgery,” Dr. Fleck states.

Finally, the addition of Botox or Dysport can help maintain your new look by relaxing strong muscles that can lead to wrinkles returning after the laser procedure. A simple 5 minute treatment every six months, Botox or Dysport is your best insurance policy for aging gracefully.
