Pollution, toxins, wind, and UV rays known as free radicals cause undetectable damage to your skin. The natural aging process causes loss of enzymes, which reduces collagen and dehydration of your skin. Free radicals speed up the aging process causing a rapid decline in your skin’s elasticity, resilience, tone, and texture. Your skin needs hydration to combat the evils of the environment. Dr. Helen Allison offers the HydraFacial treatment to address a wide-array of irregularities caused by time and environmental damage.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology aimed at treating pigmentation discrepancies in the skin. Brown spots, vascular lesions, freckles, and even Rosacea can be treated effectively with the technology, all without surgery. Dr. Helen Allison is proud to offer Lumecca, an IPL laser, to help his patients even skin tone, whether it’s the face or elsewhere on the body.
Lumecca is an IPL treatment performed without surgery in an office setting. The procedure itself is not painful, leaving patients with some redness following treatment. Depending on the severity of the issues being addressed, patients will require 1-3 treatments. If issues are minor, even just one treatment will produce a marked improvement in skin tone.
The recovery is straightforward. Patients will notice redness and warmth to the skin immediately following treatment, conditions that will dissipate within 24-48 hours.
Some lesions may appear darker but will flake off in the week afterward as the new skin grows underneath. Results from the first treatment will begin to resolve a few days after treatment. The treatments cost $250 per session. Results may vary. During your consultation, Dr. Helen Allison and his staff will give you an accurate estimate of the number of necessary treatments.
