Skin Resurfacing and Professional Makeup
Active FX Skin Resurfacing and Wrinkle Treatment
As aesthetic procedures to remove skin laxity and wrinkles become increasingly popular, more and more patients are seeking alternatives to surgery. Specifically, they seek treatments that remove wrinkles with minimal recovery time but maximal effect. Laser skin resurfacing, which has been in existence for more than fifteen years, has evolved from highly uncomfortable treatments with extended recovery periods to today's gold standard in minimal downtime wrinkle treatment, the Active FX laser. This laser incorporates state-of-the-art fractional technology to treat only a portion of the aged skin's surface, leaving tiny “bridges” of untouched skin, allowing for faster healing and allowing patients to return to normal lifestyles faster. Most patients resume normal activity in 4-5 days (a long weekend).
With only one treatment performed under comfortable local anesthetic conditions, the Active FX laser provides an immediate and remarkable improvement in the tone, texture, and tightness of the skin and even promotes growth of collagen so that results continue to improve over months. The Active FX laser is not only a stand-alone treatment for skin laxity, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars, but also can be coupled with Botox, Restylane, or facelifts to provide dramatically youthful results when contouring the face.
If you need to look your best at an important event, a professional makeup application will make you dazzle. A professional makeup lesson will teach you techniques for applying day and evening makeup and camouflage, including proper application of foundation, concealer, and color (blush, shadow, eyeliner, and lipstick). For more dramatic effects, learn about proper contouring and highlighting of facial features.
