Sacramento, CA, December 27, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Skin care’s attempt at correcting the aging process has become a controversial topic with everyone from professionals in the field to consumers. Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “The ABC’s of Wrinkle Repair: Laser, Lights, Ultrasound…which is best?” takes a look at these procedures and the roles they play in the anti-aging market.
So how do lasers work to combat wrinkles and other signs of aging? The article explains:
We know that LASER which stands for Light Amplification by Simulated Emission of Radiation works by wounding the skin. The ablated skin then heals itself revealing a new baby-like softer, smoother skin. Few would disagree that this does indeed work and prove good results when done in an approved facility with a reputable cosmetic surgeon.
For those who aren’t comfortable with the thought of coming into contact with a cosmetic laser, there are newer technologies currently available:
But what about the other new technologies such as Thermage and Ultrasound for wrinkle repair and reduction? Well, this is where many skincare specialists and doctors can't seem to agree. Many doctors feel it's a worthwhile and proven technology, while still others think it's practically a hoax. Then there are doctors in the middle who use these techniques in the interim to enhance proven procedures such as laser therapy. For instance, some doctors will use this technology to improve redness or swelling from what they consider tried and true procedures. These techniques are great because there is virtually no down time and are fairly safe to use. As long as you are getting the results you want it doesn't really matter if the medical industry agrees or disagrees.
The article manages to break down the often-complicated ins and outs of these types of cosmetic surgeries:
Thermage, Ultrasound, and LED are forms of treatment by using means of energy that is not LASER. They do not wound the skin perse'. These procedures tighten the skin as opposed to resurfacing it. Theoretically these forms of energy are thought to stimulate collagen production, whether it be by utilizing radiofrequency such as Thermage or infrared energy to heat the skin's inner layers such as the Titan treatment. These methods are fabulous in that you do not have any down time. It may cause some redness and puffiness, but not enough to keep you homebound.
According to skin care expert, Kendra Ramirez, anti-aging procedures are continuing to gain popularity, but the public also has a right to know what these procedures entail. “For many people, especially women, trying to understand the pros and cons of anti-aging processes can be overwhelming and with this article I wanted to make sure to shed some light on this topic in a way that was informative but not in a difficult, scientific way.”
