Have you ever wondered why we’re so obsessed with filtering our pictures, or why we glob on makeup to hide the areas of our skin we find less than perfect?
That’s because your skin — and how comfortable you feel in it — are huge parts of how you relate to the world around you.
So, Dr. Divina Averilla and our team at Love Your Body Medical Spa make it our mission to provide you with treatments that address your skin problems and ultimately help you realize your inner confidence.
Our most popular and most effective cosmetic treatment is skin resurfacing. Here, we take a closer look at how it works and five of the ways it can help you get the skin of your dreams.
How skin resurfacing works
Skin resurfacing is a revolutionary process that harnesses light energy to treat your skin. Through the handheld devices, we deliver concentrated pulses of light deep into the layers of your skin.
The light energy simultaneously removes dead skin on the outermost layer of your skin and stimulates collagen production below. Because the beams are so precise, we can target specific areas of your skin, leaving other healthy skin untouched and reducing your risk of side effects.
We offer the FDA-approved Laser360™ system, which combines three technologies to overhaul your skin’s appearance and health in as little as 60 days.
Are you wondering how this advanced cosmetic treatment can help you? Skin resurfacing is an incredibly versatile system that can improve the following five common skin issues.
1. Spots and scars
Even the smallest spots and scars can take your skin from picture-perfect to nightmarish. Whether you’ve got scars from bouts with acne or your spots have developed as the result of aging, skin resurfacing removes the damaged skin cells and leaves behind smoother, younger-looking skin.
2. Trouble with tone
If your skin tone isn’t even, it’s likely due to age-related changes, certain medications, and even fluctuations in your hormones. Skin resurfacing targets uneven pigmentation to even out your skin tone.
3. Loose, sagging skin
Have your cheeks started to sink? Is the skin around your neck dangling? That’s because you’ve lost your natural stores of the protein collagen, which is crucial to maintaining tight, supple skin. Skin resurfacing stimulates new collagen production, which helps shore up lax skin.
4. Fine lines and wrinkles
Lack of collagen also contributes to fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, and after years of repeated muscle movements, your skin loses its structure and becomes crepey. Skin resurfacing kicks your body into collagen-production mode and works to restore your skin’s youthful look.
5. Sun damage
On one hand, some sun exposure is great for your health. It helps your body produce vitamin D, and it can even lift your mood. But on the other hand, too much sun exposure can damage your skin and make you look older than you are. Fortunately, skin resurfacing can reverse sun damage and revive your skin.
