Skin, LASERS, peels, & facials
As we age and our skin goes through natural changes, it may become apparent that we are in need of facial rejuvenation. This may be due to wrinkles, age spots, loose skin, or acne scars. Whatever the reason, our professionals here at Precision Aesthetics and Wellness in Mt. Kisco can discuss your facial rejuvenation options with you. We offer a variety of treatments to choose from based on your needs and goals.
Wrinkles, Fine lines, Loose skin
Wrinkles are those fine lines you see on your face as you get older. They could be static wrinkles (wrinkles that are visible all the time), or dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that become visible as you make facial expressions). Over time, wrinkles etch themselves deeper and deeper into the skin due to loss of collagen and elastin. Basically, your skin becomes less flexible and starts to crack.
Environmental factors such as sun damage and lifestyle choices such as smoking can also play a huge role in the development of wrinkles. Wearing sunscreen and keeping pollutants down to a minimum can help you keep healthy, youthful-looking skin as long as possible.
Treatment Modalities for Wrinkles;
Fine Lines and even out skin texture & tone, reduce pore size, hyperpigmentation - Chemical Peel
- Microneedling with or without PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Loose skin on the neck, face (jowls), upper thighs, knees, acne scars, signs of aging - Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Age spots are those brown patches on your skin that are usually slightly larger and lighter than freckles. They appear in areas that have been repeatedly exposed to the sun, such as the arms, back, and face. Age spots pose no medical risk, so facial rejuvenation is the best choice when considering how to treat these brown spots.
Treatment Modality for Age Spots;
Age spots (brown) -IPL (intense Pulse Light Laser)
Both men and women experience frustrating acne, usually during the adolescent years. Once your acne has cleared up, however, it may leave behind discolored or even pitted scars. These scars can still detract from your appearance even though they aren’t as irritated or visible as regular acne breakouts.
Acne scars form when an acne breakout causes serious damage to the pore wall. Minor breakouts resolve themselves and heal quickly, but larger breakouts can cause permanent damage. There are a few different types of acne scars, including hypertrophic and atrophic scarring; the two most common types. The right facial rejuvenation treatment can be used to address acne scars and give you smooth, clear skin once more.
Treatment Modality for Active Acne and Acne scars;
-Custom Facial and/or mask
-IPL Laser for acne
-Microneedling with RF (scars)
Facials and Masks
Other than a daily cleanse, most people don’t think about their skin very much. Women especially can be guilty of repeatedly trying to cover up blemishes and imperfections with makeup, without trying to get to the root of the problem. Facials and masks are two ways you can improve the health of your skin while shrinking pores and reducing acne breakouts. Some treatments are even designed to address wrinkles and other age-related blemishes. At Precision Aesthetics & Wellness we provide a custom facial. Since everyone has different needs and concerns, we customize our facial after careful consultation and examination.
Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Erbium laser resurfacing is designed to remove surface-level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, or chest. One of the benefits of erbium laser resurfacing is the minimal burning of surrounding tissue. This laser causes fewer side effects -- such as swelling, bruising, and redness -- so your recovery time should be faster. In some cases, recovery may only take one week. If you have a darker skin tone, erbium laser resurfacing may work better for you.
Hair Removal Treatment
Unwanted body hair is a problem that everyone experiences. The Spectrum diode laser will reduce and may permanently remove unsightly body hair. Melanin gives our hair color and is what the laser light targets to destroy the hair follicles in the active growth stage. It is safe to use on all skin colors and will leave the treatment area free from hair.
Long Pulsed Yag Vascular Reduction
Why suffer from unsightly veins?
The Spectrum’s long-pulsed Yag laser will diminish the appearance of existing veins on the face and legs. Once the laser light is applied to the skin, it enters into the vein, where the energy from the laser is absorbed and the vein walls collapse and seal shut, eliminating the vein’s appearance on the skin. Eliminating veins with the long pulsed Yag laser is quick and effective.
Tattoo Removal Treatments
Mistakes can be corrected with the Spectrum Laser.
For multiple reasons, body art may become undesirable. The Spectrum laser uses “Gold Standard” Q-Switched technology to remove unwanted tattoos. The dual-wavelength laser targets specific ink colors. The tattoo ink is then broken down into tiny particles that are small enough so that the body’s own natural immune system can flush them away.
