Aging skin can be a nuisance to your overall appearance. When lines and wrinkles start to appear, you may try out a handful of “guaranteed to work” lotions and serums, only to be let down by their less-than-stellar results. Your face is something you show to the world every day, so if you’re unhappy with the image it portrays it may be time to do something about it.

At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we offer a variety of laser treatments and injectables to help rejuvenate your aging skin. Choosing which treatment is right for you will depend on your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.

The Power of Lasers

If you suffer with dark circles beneath your eyes, you probably receive the “you look tired” statement multiple times a day. But with a laser treatment by Dr. Birchall and his medical team, you can restore your skin to a more youthful-looking state.

One of the main concerns that patients have when considering laser treatment is its safety level around the eye area. Each of the lasers used in our practice are non-invasive and gentle enough to heal and restore the sensitive skin around your eyes. We have multiple different lasers at Dermacare, but three of our most popular include:

  • Laser Genesis – By gently heating your upper dermis, this laser works by stimulating your collagen to regrow healthier skin. This treatment is especially effective on fine lines and wrinkles, excessive redness, uneven skin texture and overly large pores.
  • PicoSure® – This laser treatment is truly unique from our other laser options. PicoSure works by using pressure instead of heat to rejuvenate your skin—making this the ideal laser to treat the sensitive skin around your eyes. This treatment is designed to work best on brown spots, sun damage, freckles, acne scars, lines and wrinkles and pigmented lesions.
  • Fraxel II® Re:Store – This popular laser treatment is well-liked for its ability to tighten skin as it reduces lines, pores, wrinkles and brown spots. The laser works by creating thousands of microscopic treatment zones in your problem areas, which are then removed of unwanted pigment. In turn, collagen is stimulated and your skin will be restored to a more natural, healthy-looking glow.

When to Choose Injectables

If aging has brought about sunken cheeks and hollowed eyes, you may begin to look more tired or older than you truly are. Dermacare offers a wide variety of injectables and fillers to help correct your unique problem areas by smoothing out wrinkles and restoring lost volume.

Many patients are turning to injectable treatments for their skin rejuvenation needs instead of undergoing dramatic, invasive procedures like a facelift.

Injectables offer more subtle results that family and friends generally can’t tell are due to a cosmetic treatment. Depending on the areas needing treatment, most injectables and fillers only take about 10 minutes to complete. Injectables usually offer immediate results and can last anywhere from a few months to a few years—depending on which treatment you receive. When you set up a consultation with Dr. Birchall, he can examine your skin and help determine which injectable will give you the best results.
