Your skin concerns can be addressed with quality med spa services not found in normal spas and salons. There are a variety of methods available to treat a variety of skin conditions. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your skin, consider consulting with one of our health care professionals about your options. You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that the highly effective methods for treating cosmetic concerns are not just limited to surgery; many treatments are quick, convenient, and noninvasive.
Some easily treated and common conditions include age spots, facial wrinkles, and spider veins. Age spots typically appear due to sun exposure over the years. Wrinkles form over time as a result of facial muscle use, looser skin, and sun damage. Spider veins are web-like, red or blueish veins that tend to appear on the legs, ankles, or face.
Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center can easily treat conditions like these and many more with a variety of methods. Laser treatments, for example, have become widely used over the years. Lasers are highly concentrated beams of light that are directed at the areas of the skin that need treatment. In some cases, high intensity lasers are used to vaporize the cells of the outer layer of the skin. This process prompts the body’s natural healing process to take over and produce new skin cells to replace the old ones. The resulting skin will then look younger and healthier.
The heat from the laser stimulates the lower layers of the skin to produce additional collagen and elastin, the two proteins that give the skin its fullness and elasticity. Our bodies naturally begin to make less of both as we age, which causes the formation of wrinkles. Stimulating the skin to boost the production of these two substances will restore fullness and eliminate wrinkles.
Laser treatments can even be used to eliminate spider veins. A medical professional will use the laser to precisely destroy the targeted veins. The remaining tissue is absorbed by the body, and the spider veins disappear from view.
In addition to lasers, intense pulse light (IPL) is also available to make the skin look younger. The light used in this technique is less intense than a laser.
These are just a few of the many treatments available with our superior quality med spa services. To see which method is best for you, schedule an evaluation with Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center in Oklahoma City.
