4 Anti-aging Treatments That Can Take Years off Your Appearance

Many good things come with age such as wisdom, maturity, and respect, but the wrinkles you can do without. Unfortunately, your skin faces natural aging processes including gravity’s constant downward pull and the loss of collagen, fat, and elastin. Eventually, many end up looking for ways to counteract the effects. We’ve got you covered.

At Shira Laser in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, we specialize in caring for skin so it looks its best at every stage of life. For those with mature skin, we offer innovative ways to restore a youthful texture and radiance. Here are four of our most popular treatments.

1. Microneedling

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in your skin. It may sound painful, but it’s not. We keep you comfortable throughout your treatment.

As the device gently perforates the top layers of your skin, extraordinary changes occur below. The tiny punctures stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing processes, increasing collagen and elastin production.

It’s like tricking your skin into thinking it’s younger than it is so you get a smoother, firmer, and more youthful complexion.

2. HydraFacial®

A HydraFacial is a multi-step treatment that combines the best aspects of deep cleansing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, and painless extractions. After a relaxing cleanse, we gently exfoliate and peel away the dead outer layer of your skin to reveal the fresh new skin cells underneath.

Then, the innovative HydraFacial device vacuums your pores and removes dirt and debris that could cause acne and breakouts. Finally, we feed your new skin with moisturizing serums that penetrate your tissues and nourish them from within.

HydraFacial is the most effective type of facial because it targets all the worst things about aging: fine lines, wrinkles, congested pores, and hyperpigmentation. The best part is that the results are instant. You walk out of Shira Laser with radiant, dewy skin.

3. Chemical peels

Chemical peels may sound intimidating, even dangerous, but they’re one of the safest, most effective ways to treat signs of aging.

We simply apply a safe, FDA-approved chemical solution typically derived from fruit acids to your skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. As the old layer falls away, it reveals a new, smoother layer of skin underneath.

We can even customize your chemical peel to address your unique needs, from wrinkles to sun damage. It’s like hitting the reset button on your skin.

4. Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a breakthrough laser treatment that stimulates your skin’s natural processes. It gently heats your upper dermis and triggers a flood of collagen regrowth, so you get plumper, tighter skin but that’s not all.

Laser Genesis is super versatile and can tackle several common complexion complaints, like redness, large pores, uneven skin texture, fine line wrinkles, and acne scars.

These treatments are more than just quick fixes: They’re an investment in your skin’s health and longevity. When you’re ready to de-age your skin, request a free consultation online or call Shira Laser in Brooklyn, New York.
