Looking forward to that special event but not happy with the appearance of sun damage or age spots? The enlighten™ laser treatment may be just what you need to prepare. This innovative laser photofacial technology is ideal for tightening the skin and addressing discolorations that affect your self-confidence.
Dr. Felix Bopp offers enlighten™ laser procedures right in our office for his patients in and around Metairie, Louisiana. You can get immediate, long-lasting results without any incisions or downtime.
How photofacials work
The enlighten™ system uses picosecond laser pulses operating at a higher power than other lasers. Your skin cells absorb the laser energy, which breaks up discoloration into microscopic particles. Your body can then dispose of these particles naturally as waste, without any further treatment.
Laser energy can destroy the darkened pigments that result from:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Spider veins
The technology is also excellent at removing tattoos, breaking down the inks to minimize their appearance.
Enjoy younger-looking, clearer skin
A significant benefit of the enlighten™ technology is the skin-smoothing benefits the system can achieve. Following treatment, your skin appears clearer and has a healthier texture, giving you a younger, fresher look.
You’ll begin to see a difference in the look and feel of your skin after your first treatment. Dr. Bopp creates a custom treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results based on your skin tone, thickness, and the size of the treatment area.
While the laser technology is highly effective at destroying discolorations and darkened pigments, it does so without damaging any surrounding tissue or skin. Since enlighten™ is safe for all types of skin, it’s a great choice for men and women looking to improve their appearance without surgery.
No downtime, long-term results
During your treatment with enlighten™, you can relax as Dr. Bopp uses different wavelengths of energy to address the cosmetic issues you want to target. Typically, the enlighten™ system causes no pain, but to ensure you’re completely comfortable, you can receive a topical numbing cream prior to the laser treatments.
After the procedure ends, you may have mild swelling and some redness in the treatment area. However, these issues resolve on their own in 1-2 days. You can go home right after your appointment without any limitations or need for recovery.
It takes some time for your system to flush out the broken-down pigments from age spots and other pigmented areas, but over time you’ll continue to see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s tone and texture. Additional enlighten™ treatments further enhance your results, giving you clearer skin and a boost to your self-esteem.
Since you may need more than one enlighten™ treatment to achieve your desired results, you need to schedule your consultation in advance of your special event. Spring is a great time to rejuvenate your skin before the summer months roll in.
Dr. Bopp customizes your treatment based on your goals and the condition of your skin, ensuring your satisfaction and natural-looking results.
