Often called “lunch-hour face lifts,” laser facials stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in an up to 40 percent tightening of the skin and the improved appearance of lines and wrinkles. A laser facial can also be used to treat acne, as it helps kill the bacteria that causes acne and shrink sebaceous (oil) glands that are the pockets where acne forms. The laser facial is safe for all skin types. Generally, a minimum of three to four treatments, four to six weeks apart, are recommended, with follow-up treatment needed to maintain continued collagen stimulation. Schedule a consultation to discuss with Dr. Alouf the number of treatments and frequency that will achieve the results you want.
