Wouldn’t you love to see radiant skin when you look in the mirror? If so, CO2RE CO2 fractional resurfacing is a procedure that you may want to consider trying. This procedure involves using a state-of-the-art carbon dioxide laser treatment to remove layers of skin in order to reduce the appearance of things like fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, hyperpigmentation and scarring. This laser creates small wounds inside the skin, which helps induce healing. CO2RE CO2 fractional resurfacing only targets specific areas of the skin, and the surrounding skin is not damaged.

At Cosmetic Laser MD in Livingston, NJ, we help restore a more youthful appearance and give you radiant, glowing skin with fractional resurfacing. This non-invasive treatment can help give you back your glow in as little as one treatment. Our medical team, led by Susan Stevens Tanne, MD, can help customize a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. To schedule your consultation, contact Cosmetic Laser MD today.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of treatments can vary depending on the patient. However, many patients are able to get amazing results with just one treatment. For some patients we recommend follow-up treatments in order to maintain their results. It is important to note that the results of CO2 fractional laser resurfacing are not permanent. Most people will need to get another treatment within a few years.

Is This Procedure Painful?
Most people do not find this procedure to be uncomfortable. A topical anesthetic is applied before this procedure in order to minimize the discomfort. We can work with you to ensure maximum comfort is sustained throughout the procedure.

Is This Treatment Right For Me?
The only way to determine whether CO2 fractional laser resurfacing is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tanne. The best candidates are people who have realistic expectations and are healthy. However, this treatment is not right for pregnant women. It is also not right if you have a history of cold sores.

Side Effects and Recovery
It takes several days for the skin to heal. For the first 3 – 5 days, you will need to wear an ointment on your skin which we will provide you with. During this time, you may experience some oozing, bleeding, crusting and dryness.  Once your skin peels, you no longer need to use the thick ointment, however diligent use of mineral based sunscreen is essential. We recommend sunscreen from ELTA MD.  Your skin will still be pink, however you may wear mineral based foundation at this point. We recommend Oxygenetix. Even though the skin will usually heal within two weeks, it is important to note that some redness may persist for two to three months after the procedure. You will notice a significant improvement in your skin after you have healed completely.

Aftercare
To properly recover, it is vital that you to follow all of the instructions recommended by Dr. Tanne. We always  recommend that you limit sun exposure in order to help your skin heal faster. You will also need to follow a strict skin care regimen. The net results will be RADIANT SKIN!

ARE YOU SHOWING OFF YOUR BARCODE?

October 26, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures

We have all seen women with those dreaded “smoker’s lines” around the mouth – those tell-tale signs of aging that are impossible to hide with any type of makeup – THE BARCODE!  So what are they, and how can we make them disappear?

Well, smoking and sun damage are the top two reasons for these dreaded lines, but aging causes thinning of the lips in most women, resulting in too much skin above those shrunken lips with no place to go except to causes pleats and folds.

While mineral based sunscreen is the best anti-aging product to prevent damage in the first place, once these lines have etched themselves in, it is time for more aggressive measures.

  • CO2RE fractional laser skin resurfacing will turn back the clock and erase the deep and shallow lines.
  • For the still present volume loss due to shrinkage of the underlying fat, injectable fillers restore a youthful fullness to this area.
  • The third component is to soften the puckering movement that continues to create lines with a small amount of Botox or Dysport.

The end result is a smooth, youthful mouth with no sign of that dreaded BARCODE!



Simple Steps to Improve Elasticity in The Skin

July 18, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News

As we age not only do we experience a loss of collagen in the skin but reduced skin elasticity too, causing wrinkles and sagging skin. Fortunately, there a few ways to improve elasticity so that you can maintain a more youthful appearance and keep your skin functioning at a younger age too.
With each passing year we lose collagen and skin elasticity in our face. This means wrinkles and sagging skin. While there’s no way to completely stop the clock, you can increase your skin’s elasticity for a lifted, firmer and younger looking face with a couple of proven methods. Maintain a more youthful appearance and keep your skin functioning at a younger age too.

First, let’s test your skin’s functional age to find out if its aging younger, older or the same rate as your biological age. Here’s what to  do. Lay your hand on a flat surface, palm down. Then pinch the skin on the back of your hand for five seconds. Let go and count how many seconds it takes for your skin to flatten back out. If it took one to two seconds your functional age is under 30; three to four seconds and it’s about 30 to 44; five to nine seconds and it’s about 45 to 50; and ten to 15 seconds it’s about 60 and so on.

TIME:            FUNCTIONAL AGE:

1 – 2 sec        Under 30
3 – 4 sec        30 – 44
5 – 9 sec        45 – 50
10 – 15 sec    60
35 – 55 sec    70
56 sec+        Over 70

There are cosmetic procedures that help with skin’s elasticity like dermal fillers which help stimulate collagen as well as lift and contour your features. Laser and other energy based treatments such as eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation, Fractora Fractional Skin Resurfacing and CO2RE CO2 Fractional Skin Resurfacing (a newer, better version of Fraxel Repair) create significantly improved texture and firming. Fractora Firm and ReFirme/Sublime are non-invasive technologies to tighten the skin. Ingredient driven skin care such as our Tanne MD Medical Skin Care give you a twice a day at-home opportunity to nourish and hydrate your skin. Ask us about the right treatments for you, so you can look as good as you feel.
