A laser face lift is a general term – like laser skin rejuvenation -- that describes the use laser technology to rejuvenate or resurface the top layers of the skin -- giving it a tighter, smoother appearance.
Laser skin treatment has many advantages over other treatments such as chemical peels, because it’s much more precise and there is little or no bleeding.
This procedure is quick and takes anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour, depending on how large of an area is being resurfaced.
Laser treatments can be done on specific areas of the face that are prone to wrinkling -- like the eye area (i.e., crows feet), or the mouth – or it can be done on the whole face.
A popular laser lift currently used is called the CP6. This involves a series of 6 different laser treatments.
The last and sixth treatment uses Amber LED Photomodulation treatment which interacts with mitochondria of the skin cells -- increasing collagen, eliminating wrinkles, shrinking pores, and improving tone and texture.
Most people say result usually last for several years. Remember, laser skin resurfacing won't stop the aging process of the face.
You'll need to have this procedure performed every couple of years to maintain results.
Cost - The cost ranges anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 depending on the doctor and how many areas of the face are done.
Side Effects - Mild side effects include temporary redness which can last for months during the healing process, crustiness, mild swelling, and increased sensitivity to sun. More severe side effects include permanent skin discoloration or worse facial wasting if the underlying fatty tissues have been damaged.
This procedure is not for everyone. People with dark or olive skin may not be good candidate because of an increased risk for pigmentation changes.
Also, if you are prone to acne or infections laser rejuvenation is not a good idea.
NOTE: Personally, I'm convinced and hooked on facial exercises. The changes I've seen in my neck in a matter of 14 weeks has convinced me that I'm on to something here.
Facial exercises also help regenerate and prevent facial bone loss which also contributes to facial aging.
