Dr. Birchenough and his team have been extensively trained in laser technology, safety and usage. They use the highest grade Sciton laser to help correct and enhance facial and neck skin signs of sun damage and aging. In recent years, lasers have become a mainstream treatment in the fight against aging, sun-damaged skin. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 509,055 men and women underwent laser skin resurfacing in 2012, up 9% from 2011 and a whopping 198% since the year 2000.
Laser resurfacing is a very controlled procedure during which a laser specifically targets superficial or deeper layers of facial skin, removing not only wrinkles and lines caused by sun damage and facial expressions, but also acne scars, some folds and creases around the nose and mouth and even precancerous and benign superficial growths. In a sense, the laser procedure creates a fresh surface over which new skin can grow.
Many of Dr. Birchenough’s patients take a long weekend to have and recover from a facial laser treatment. Although it’s only a few quiet days at home, the procedure takes years of damage off of their skin. Happy clients head back to work on Monday morning looking more youthful and refreshed. Come into see how Dr. Birchenough and his team can bring a youthful glow back to your skin.
