A Guide to Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

How many television commercials have you seen promoting a skincare product that miraculously turns back the hands of time for a fraction of the price or one that is considered an “at-home” treatment?  While these price tags and convenience may seem worthwhile, there is much caution that should be taken.  As we start the New Year, the John L. LeRoy, M.D., F.A.C.S., P.C. team understands the importance of maintaining healthy, vibrant skin and wouldn’t want any of our current or potential patients to cause more harm to their skin than good.  If you’re looking for non-surgical rejuvenation, look no further than with Band Aid facial procedures:

LeRoy_Jan2014FINALQ: I am a religious sun worshiper and my skin’s starting to pay the price.  What can I do?
A: With extensive time spent in the sun comes the sometimes less than desirably increased speed of aging.  From sun damage to wrinkles, the harmful UV rays that the sun gives off can make you age much faster than you really are.  I like to recommend the non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment I call Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing.  Using the advanced technology of DOT Therapy™, I am able to use precise laser light to increase collage production and decrease the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles and even facial scarring.  Skin resurfacing treatments are performed in my office and don’t require anesthesia (I prefer to use gentle numbing) in order to minimize my patient’s downtime.  Even for those who don’t spend a lot of time in the sun but are aging faster, laser resurfacing is great for those looking for subtle cosmetic changes but may not yet be ready for traditional facial plastic surgery.

Q: I want to get rid of wrinkles and tighten the skin around my face and neck.  Is there a non-surgical way instead of facelift?
A: Yes, absolutely!  Skin tightening treatments are ideal for targeting aging concerns of men and women of all ages.  Using the Protégé skin rejuvenation system’s innovative Energy Flow Control (EFC) system, precisely controlled heat energy passes through the skin to gently heat the layers below.  It offers visible, long lasting results for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also tightening skin that has started to sag with age (it’s safe for the face/neck, around the eyes and for all skin types).  The purpose of my Band Aid Skin Tightening with Protégé treatment is to promote collagen regrowth non-surgically to provide a more youthful, rejuvenated look.  Best of all, since this treatment doesn’t require anesthesia as well, patients can get back to their normal routines immediately after treatment.

Instead of trusting skincare products and at-home treatments that may not have your best interest at heart (like your safety or actual effectiveness), I always recommend patients consult with a skilled board-certified plastic surgeon with many years performing treatments that you are interested in.  It not only keeps you from wasting your money, but ensures that your results are in line with your cosmetic facial rejuvenation goals.  This month, I am offering special savings on both Band Aid skin resurfacing and Band Aid skin tightening.  Feel free to check out the flyer before for details.  If you’re ready to take the first steps in anti-aging the nonsurgical route, don’t hesitate to contact me, Dr. John L. LeRoy, to get started!
