If you want to improve your image and look younger a laser facelift may be the simple answer. A laser facelift can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, acne scars and abnormal pigmentations, basically any imperfections on your skin which cause you to look older. This treatment may also be performed on the wrinkles on your hands and neck.
The skin is heated up by the laser, this causes the collagen within the skin to expand. A laser facelift may cause slight discolouration of the skin so it is not appropriate for darker skinned people. Following a laser facelift the skin needs a few months to heal.
During this time crusting and weeping may occur, the area can be soothed by gently applying Vaseline to the skin. You will also appear red this will fade gradually, try and avoid using make up for the first 10 days to give the skin a chance to heal and prevent any potential infections. New collagen takes time to form so you will continue seeing improvements in your skin for up to 10 months. As further wrinkles develop as the ageing process continues further laser treatment can be performed again although one should always be realistic with their expectations.
