Your Best Skin is Possible with Esteem’s Laser Treatments

 

With the new year underway and Spring around the corner, now is the perfect time to focus on self-care. And what better way to get started than some TLC for your skin? At Esteem, we offer a wide range of laser services  to ensure your skin is flawless and fresh no matter what time of year it is.

Below are a few ways to laser your way to better skin.

Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing

Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing is a state-of-the-art skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to enhance the quality of your skin in various ways. Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing reduces signs of aging, and helps to minimize skin damage from sun exposure and environmental factors.

Laser resurfacing treats age spots, acne scars, wrinkles, dyschromias, and even certain skin lesions.

After laser resurfacing, you can expect:

  • Lightened and reduced sunspots.
  • Visual reduction of broken capillaries.
  • Overall improvement of your skin’s texture.
  • Noticeable skin tightening.
  • Diminished nasolabial folds.
  • Softening and reduction in eye wrinkles.

 

Laser Resurfacing for Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition which typically takes form as the appearance of small blood vessels on the skin’s surface. Rosacea can also appear as an acne breakout. There is no known cause of rosacea, but it can be treated using photo rejuvenation, or intense pulsed light. Treatment for Rosacea at Esteem is typically done in monthly intervals and can yield amazing results. In order to ensure the best possible results, we recommend you avoid possible triggers (spicy food, hot beverages, alcohol, heat and sunlight) and take care of your sensitive skin.

Treating Spider Veins with Laser Resurfacing

When Spider veins appear on your face, they are known as telangiectasia. This isn’t necessarily a medical problem, but it can affect self-confidence. If you want to diminish and eventually eliminate spider vein, or telangiectasia, visibility, Esteem can help with Laser Resurfacing.

The laser treatments are generally pain free, safe, and yield great results.

If you’d like to see how Esteem can you reduce the visibility of your telangiectasia, get your free consultation, today.

Laser Resurfacing and Acne

What is PDT?

Photodynamic therapy uses two main components: light and a photosensitizer. The photosensitizer, a topical solution, is applied to the treatment area and absorbed through the skin glands. Skin is then exposed to the Blu-U® blue light, resulting in a significant reduction of skin bacteria and oil production.

Whether you’re just looking to give your skin a vibrant boost, or you want to target a specific issue like acne, rosacea, or spider veins, the Esteem team is here to help.
