Anti-Aging Laser Facial
Who is a good candidate for the Anti-Aging Laser Facial?
Flash Lab's Anti-Aging Laser Facial is perfect for anyone seeking a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance. Not only does the GentleYag lift and contract sagging areas of the skin by stimulating collagen production, it also works to soften fine lines and wrinkles, reduce redness, tighten pores and resurface irregularities such as acne scarring. The Anti-Aging Laser Facial features so many benefits, it truly is the epitome of complexion correction.
How does the Anti-Aging Facial work?
Think of this treatment like going to the gym. When you exercise, you create micro tears in your muscles which force them to repair themselves and become stronger. The same thing happens when you heat the sub-dermal layers of the skin. Your fibroblasts (the cells responsible for elasticity) are getting a work out which in turn stimulates new collagen growth. And much like you continue to burn calories after you leave the gym, new collagen will continue to develop over the course of four to six months.
Is the Anti-Aging Laser Facial safe?
When performed by qualified professionals, laser facials are a safe and simple, FDA approved procedure that have been used for years to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical issues. At Flash Lab, our technicians are certified laser specialists as well as licensed estheticians who provide consults before every session to ensure your skin is properly prepped and safe for treatment.
Is the Anti-Aging Laser Facial painful?
While many laser treatments have been known to be uncomfortable in the past, thanks to Candela's unique and patented cooling system, which provides a soothing burst of cryogen milliseconds before each pulse, the anti-aging laser facial is more manageable than ever. However, since the objective of this treatment is to heat the skin enough to stimulate collagen production, Flash Lab offers a numbing agent for a small additional cost.
How should I prepare for my Anti-Aging Laser Facial?
Please avoid significant sun exposure for at least two weeks before your treatment. You'll want to arrive to your appointment with skin which is clean and make-up free. If you choose, the application of a numbing agent should be thirty minutes prior to your session.
What should I expect after my Anti-Aging Laser Facial?
What's most exciting about this treatment is that there is virtually no downtime and you can expect to see results right away! While mild redness and swelling can occur immediately following your session, so will the tightening effect of the laser. For best results Flash Lab recommends a series of six sessions spread four weeks apart. Optimal results will appear anywhere from 4-6 months from your first appointment at which point new collagen growth will be in full swing.
What technology does Flash Lab use to perform the Anti-Aging Laser Facial?
Flash Lab uses the FDA approved Candela GentleYag, one of the most advanced systems for laser facials the esthetics industry has to offer. The Yag is not only safe and effective for all skin types but lightweight and easily operable, a unique quality which is rarely addressed when weighing the benefits of one machine over another.
Aside from how powerful a particular laser may be, one of the most important components to achieving optimal results is your technician’s ability to manipulate it. Simply put, when our job is easier you get a better treatment, and the Candela GentleMax's lightweight and fast-pulsing design is a technician’s dream. The Candela also offers a patented Cryogen cooling technology that you won’t find anywhere else. Most machines used for laser facials come equipped with cooling air hoses that technicians have to operate while simultaneously pulsing the laser. The GentleMax however, has its cooling system built directly into the hand piece, providing a protective burst of cryogen to safely soothe your skin a split second before the zap happens. This leaves your technician free to concentrate on what’s most important: a comfortable, complete and effective skin tightening session.
