Laser Resurfacing Under the Eyes

Posted by Amy Raval on Apr 1, 2020 5:04:25 PM

As we get older and start to notice changes in our skin, we are most likely to notice the wrinkles around our eyes first. This skin is the most delicate of all the body and will quickly show signs of ageing and fatigue. There are fewer collagen and elastin fibers around the eye making it more prone to sagging and wrinkling. On top of its delicate nature, the skin around our eyes can show unique conditions such as puffiness, dark circles, milia, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. This is why there is such a massive market for under eye creams and treatments. If you have been throwing your money at these products without real results, you may be considering Laser Skin Resurfacing. Let’s take a look at the procedure and common outcomes as well as risks and recovery times.

Posted by Amy Raval on Feb 24, 2020 2:22:09 PM

Laser treatment stands out as an effective option for a wide array of skin issues, from hyperpigmentation and wrinkles to scarring, birthmarks, and certain veins. While it is appropriate for most skin types, those of you with sensitive skin may be wondering if laser treatment is right for you.

If you’re starting out with sensitive skin or eczema, both of which compromise your skin’s barrier function, you may experience more sensitivity than that which is typical of a patient with non-sensitive skin.

7 symptoms of a deviated septum to look out for

Posted by Amy Raval on Sep 23, 2019 11:19:11 AM

A deviated septum is not a laughing matter, no matter how weird the noises you make when you snore. And it is not something to take lightly, because it is more than just an annoyance. Even if your nose doesn’t look “out of joint” from a deviated septum, breathing difficulties can lead to very serious health problems. Nasal valve surgery, called septoplasty, can repair a deviated septum, and that can be a life-changer.

Posted by Amy Raval on Jul 23, 2019 11:18:15 AM

Dermal fillers can do wonders to reduce or virtually eliminate facial lines and wrinkles, add volume to lips and contours, and help smooth the appearance of acne scars.
