Even patients that make every effort to protect their skin will experience the signs of damage and aging at some point in their life.
Cosmetic problems such as liver spots and redness are not always dangerous, but they can make it difficult to feel comfortable with your own appearance.
If you have begun to notice the signs of aging but are not quite ready for invasive cosmetic surgeries, then you might want to take a look at non-ablative laser treatments such as CLEARLIFT.
The Inevitable Signs of Aging
Liver spots (age spots) are brown or black spots that are typically found on one’s shoulders, face, neck, arms, and hands. All patients should have these spots checked out to make sure that they do not contain cancerous cells, but most liver spots are nothing more than a cosmetic issue.
Liver spots, redness, and other forms of skin damage can be caused by exposure to the sun, chemical-laden beauty products, or even your genetics.
Options such as sunblock and wide-brimmed hats will reduce your risk of skin damage, but practically everyone will notice at least some visible liver spots and discoloration as they grow older.
What is CLEARLIFT?
All lasers that are used in cosmetic treatments are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers are more powerful and actually “damage” the outer layer of the epidermis to expose the skin underneath.
CLEARLIFT uses two non-ablative lasers to penetrate the outer layer of the epidermis without damaging the skin. This technology has been used to successfully treat liver spots, redness, fine lines, and wrinkles.
A Look at the Ideal Candidate
Patients will be glad to hear that CLEARLIFT can produce amazing results no matter their age, the extent of their skin damage, or their skin tone.
Preparing for Your Treatment
Depending on exactly what is being treated, most patients may need between three and five appointments. Each of these treatments can be carried out in around 30 minutes and have absolutely no recovery time.
If the treatment is being carried out around the face or neck, then the doctor will most likely need to clean off any beauty products from the treatment site.
After the final appointment, patients will be able to enjoy their rejuvenated new skin for six months or longer. Maintenance treatments may be needed in order for you to continue enjoying your youthful new appearance for years on end.
