Doctors Edward Buckingham and Erin Smith offer Skin Laser Treatments solutions for patients in Austin & Sunset Valley, TX. Cosmetic surgery is very effective for turning the clock back but may discourage some people from addressing their aesthetic issues. It requires a lengthier recovery process and is usually reserved for more drastic improvements. Laser treatment can solve a wide range of cosmetic issues. The non-surgical nature of our laser treatments coupled with the longevity of results makes them a convenient solution for all. The Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of laser treatments, both surgical and non-invasive, in Austin, TX.

How Laser Treatments work

Lasers work by concentrating light into an intense beam on a tiny area. Depending on their use, lasers come in different wavelengths. For cosmetic applications, specific wavelengths produce the response you need for your skin to jumpstart its healing and rejuvenation.

Collagen and elastin are essential for skin health. Your body’s production of these proteins slows down with age. Laser treatments are great for encouraging your body to produce more of these as well as hyaluronic acid. All three of these elements combine to give you beautiful, hydrated skin.

Benefits of Skin Laser Treatments

Other than their non-invasive nature, laser treatments have some attractive benefits over plastic surgery and we have many Face rejuvenation case studies too.

Reasonable Cost – Although laser skin treatments are not covered by medical insurance due to their classification as cosmetic procedures, they are reasonably priced for the results you get. The overall cost depends on the number of sessions required for any condition. Also, a competent and reliable professional may charge more than a questionable establishment. Since laser treatment concerns your health and appearance, it’s well worth placing your trust in a board-certified specialist.

Short Recovery – Since there are no incisions or stitches, recovery is a brief process with little, if any, discomfort. Depending on the treatment, your surgeon will allow you to return to your daily activities within days.

Low Risk – As far as cosmetic procedures go, the risk of side effects is very low. These include redness and rashes, bumps, swelling, hyperpigmentation, scars, and possible infections. However, your surgeon will take all necessary precautions to make the possibility of these risks close to zero.

Skin Laser Treatment Options/ Services

Intense Pulse Light

Intense Pulse Light, or IPL, is a laser skin treatment that improves your appearance by intervening at the cellular level. Your dermis, which is the layer of skin under the epidermis, receives an array of wavelengths depending on the condition. This means that a wide range of patients can benefit from IPL therapy.

The best candidates for IPL are those wanting to restore youthfulness to their appearance. Sun-damaged skin, age spots, and fine lines respond well to intense light pulse treatments.

BBL Ultra Peel

BBL ULTRA PEEL can remove brown spots and freckles. Though the treatment can apply to most skin areas, the face and neck are the most popular. BBL ULTRA PEEL treatment is ideal for softening fine lines and removing pigment irregularities and sun damage. It’s also great for helping stimulate collagen production for longer-lasting results.

Halo Laser

Halo Laser technology can treat the epidermis while also addressing damage deeper in the skin. It can turn back the time on years of aging due to sun damage.

Halo is a hybrid fractional laser. This means that it combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. The result is a healing effect that produces maximum cosmetic results.

In other words, a fraction of your skin receives treatment at a time by thousands of tiny beams. This allows the laser to correct enlarged pores and uneven tone, all while giving you a deeper healing effect.

Nano Laser Peel

The Nano Peel gives you the benefits of a chemical peel without needing the abrasive chemical agents. The laser targets dead tissue on the outermost layer of the skin. By removing these aging tissues, both your skin tone and texture improve. The result is bright skin with a smooth appearance.

The results of the Nano Peel become apparent within a few days of treatment. The quick rejuvenation process hinges on messenger proteins that become activated within your skin. This causes a chain reaction that influences deeper skin layers, producing results that last for many months.

RF Microneedling

You may already know about the impressive benefits of microneedling. This is where a device with small needles stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin.

RF Microneedling takes this therapeutic method a step further. The specialist uses radiofrequency energy that enters your skin through the tiny punctures that microneedling creates. This prompts the body to produce even more collagen than it would on its own.

Due to the penetrating effects of RF energy, healing can continue for as long as six to eight weeks post-treatment. For those wondering if this treatment is painful, you’ll be happy to know that you may experience mild discomfort at most. The application of a topical anesthetic before the procedure will put you at ease.

Conditions Lasers can treat

Most people with skin conditions make good candidates for skin laser treatments. Your provider will help you determine which procedure is best for your skin tone. Here is a list of conditions that can be treated with the use of lasers.

  • acne scars
  • age spots
  • scars
  • redness
  • pigmentation issues and uneven skin tone
  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • sagging
  • sun damage

Post-Treatment Recovery

In the case of RF Microneedling, there is a small risk of infection as tiny needles are involved. This risk is minimized by all the precautions taken both before and after treatment.

As far as the other treatment types, side effects can include redness, tenderness, and slight pigmentation issues. All in all, potential side effects are minimal with laser skin treatment. This makes laser treatments a great choice for those that are generally averse to any type of medical procedure.

Dr. Buckingham feels that successful facial plastic surgery results from the development and maintenance of good rapport between the patient, the surgeon, and his staff during the consultation and future appointments. The consultation will include a complete facial analysis to determine the best procedure to bring about the desired results and all questions relating to the patients specific concerns will be addressed.

Prospective patients are encouraged to call the office to schedule an appointment at their earliest convenience.
