What are the benefits of Polaris-Laser Lift over other procedures and surgeries?
It is non-invasive. There are no incisions and no tissue damage
A level of control can be achieved that is difficult with other treatments. There is no bleeding or bruising and the risk of scarring is minimal. It utilizes three different forms of energy to reach multiple skin problems. Improvement of wrinkles, sagging and color can be expected.
What about recovery?
There may be areas of slight swelling or redness that resolves over a few days. Make-up may be applied immediately. You may resume all normal activities immediately. The full effect of your treatment develops over a few months following the procedure and can be expected to last for several months or years. As with any cosmetic procedure, the results can be expected to fade gradually over time, at which time the procedure can be repeated if desired.
What kind of results can I expect?
Some patients see results immediately. However, for most patients the results are gradual over a three to six month period as the skin tightens and more new collagen is formed. Depending on the area treated, the skin laxity and your desired results, multiple treatments may be required.
Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth fill in, while the deeper frown lines and grooves are softened. Facial skin and the skin along the neck can be tightened providing a mild, non-surgical browlift or facelift effect. This tightening effect can be used to firm up loose or sagging tissue in other parts of the body. This same deep Polarisl tissue heating may also have benefits for treating acne, acne scarring and stretch marks. Redness and brown blotchiness also gradually improve two to three months after the treatments are complete.
How long will the results last?
Many patients have reported improvement up to a year after the treatments but results can be variable. Your results may last a few months or a few years. We do know that the aging process continues. Your skin willl continue to age as it has in the past and eventually you may wish to have another anti-aging procedure.
Is a Polaris-Laser Lift safe?
Yes. While this is a relatively new procedure, the use of RF energy, laser energy, and pulsed light, in other areas of medicine and dermatology is not. The worldwide safety record of this procedure has revealed very few adverse effects thus far.
