Wrinkles & Scars
Laser Resurfacing Treatment of Wrinkles, Scars and Aging Skin
The Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center has the experience and technology to provide the best treatments for your skin concerns. We have invested more than 6 million dollars in over 70 specialty lasers and energy devices and we also have over 100 years of combined experience necessary to provide exactly the right treatments to help you look your best at every age.
Wrinkles, scars and spots appear with age. Most changes are benign, however some such as melanoma and other skin cancers have a subtle appearance that may not be appreciated or correctly diagnosed by the untrained eye. We recommend that you consult with a member of our highly trained staff that includes multiple board-certified dermatologists to assess your skin prior to beginning treatments. If skin cancers or precancerous lesions are present, it is important to recognize this condition early to avoid serious complications. Our providers can also make recommendations to preserve your skin’s natural beauty.
The earliest signs of aging include fine lines, skin laxity, changes in texture and color along with the appearance of freckles, age spots and other skin lesions common in aged skin. Gateway offers a wide array of simple procedures that can often be conveniently performed with no interruption to your work or social schedule.
As aging progresses, it may be necessary to have treatments such as laser resurfacing to treat deeper wrinkles, scars and some skin lesions. Discolored red and brown spots and precancerous lesions may also need specialty treatment.
Laser resurfacing is the most effective treatment to remove wrinkles, scars, precancerous lesions, and to erase 20+ years of aging from your skin. Light, medium, and deep laser resurfacing are available to meet your needs and lifestyle. Treatment can be performed either in a single session, or with milder treatments over multiple sessions. Examples of laser resurfacing treatments are Fotona resurfacing, Fraxel, Halo, Clear & Brilliant, etc. Another example, the Light & Bright facial, is a combination treatment for brown & red pigmentation with IPL or laser plus a mild laser peel. This treatment helps to improve color and texture of the skin. (Please see attached PDF’s for more information on our different treatment options.)
Which treatment is right for you? It depends on how severe your condition and how much downtime you can afford. To select the very best treatment for your particular skin, we suggest you schedule a consultation with one of our skilled providers. Call today at 801-595-1600.
