Collagen Rejuvenation

Lyra 1064nm Nd:YAG Laser Collagen Rejuvenation/ Erbium YAG Resurfacing

You may be candidate for Lyra 1064nm Nd:YAG Laser Collagen Rejuvenation and/or Erbium YAG Laser Resurfacing if you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck. A Laser Facial Rejuvenation may also be desirable if you have the appearance of jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth, developed facial and neck wrinkles.

A Laser Facial Rejuvenation may also be helpful if you believe you lack youthful chin and neck contours and/or feel you have a tired facial appearance.

A Laser Facial Rejuvenation is intended to give the patient a more rested and youthful contour to the face and neck. Laser Facial Rejuvenation range in intensity from “mini” to “standard” depending on location and extent of skin laxity. At All About Youth the procedure is done on an outpatient basis WITHOUT local anesthesia, sedation, NOR under general anesthesia. The patient goes home or back to work immediately without head and neck wrapped in dressings, which are needed in invasive FaceLift operations. The patient may appear to be mildly wind or sun exposed. Three or four days after the procedure the skin will exfoliate or peel. Minimal initial discomfort is easily controlled with a topical medication. There are NO sutures nor bandages to be removed! There is NO bruising with this procedure! You will NOT have to wait for swelling to decrease to “socially acceptable” levels, which in a Face Lift procedure can take in 10 days to 3 weeks! The final result of a Laser Facial Rejuvenation procedure is up to you. You will continue to see improvement each month. Initial changes will be felt immediately and visual changes will be noticed in 6-8 weeks. The procedure takes about 1/2 hour and utilizes two (2) separate Lasers. 4-5 sessions one month apart are recommended for collagen rejuvenation.

Laser Facial Rejuvenation is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment. There are virtually No risks. Protocol will be explained at the time of consultation. This is NOT a surgical procedure and does NOT have the inherent risks of an invasive procedure. Minor/temporary complications or redness or tenderness that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are very unusual.
