Are lines, wrinkles, or age spots the first thing you notice when you look at your face each morning? These age-related changes can make you feel like you’re fighting a losing battle. If you’ve searched for ways to combat these changes, you might have been told that surgery is the only way to fight the effects of aging.
Here at Lonestar Surgical Specialists in Decatur, Texas, Dr. Daniel Morris and his team know that you want to feel comfortable in your own skin. That’s why he offers nonsurgical options to address the effects of aging on your skin.
Chemical peels can give you smoother, less wrinkled skin. Chemical peels are done by applying a chemical solution to your skin to exfoliate it. Over the next few days, your skin peels off to reveal a new layer of skin. Chemical peels can treat crow’s feet, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, scars from acne, and other signs of aging.
This technique uses short, pulsing beams of light to remove skin irregularities. The laser slowly removes surface layers of your skin. As the area heals, new skin forms, which will have fewer wrinkles and blemishes.
Laser resurfacing is often used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and scars from acne. You might notice some itching or stinging for up to 72 hours after the procedure. It can take a few laser resurfacing treatments to get the desired results.
ReFirme skin tightening
As you age, your body no longer produces collagen and elastin as it once did. These two proteins give your skin strength and elasticity. Without collagen and elastin, your skin can appear loose around your neck and face. The ReFirme® skin tightening system uses radiofrequency and light energy to heat deep layers of your skin.
When the layers are heated up, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which can tighten mild to moderately loose skin on your face and neck. Since ReFirme is a nonsurgical treatment, it only takes about an hour to perform in our office, and there’s no downtime.
