Smooth and Supple: The Benefits of the Sciton Micro Laser Peel

Sciton BBLIn a perfect world, you would have the skin you have in your twenties for the rest of your life. Not only are your teenage hormones balanced out by the time you are in your twenties but your skin is usually free of those nasty lines and wrinkles as well. However, as not only age sets in but environmental elements as well, your skin can start to show signs of damage and wear. Luckily, Dr. Daniel Tresley specializes in a variety of treatments that are designed to help rejuvenate your skin so that although you may not be able to live in your twenties for forever, your skin can still look like it. As one of the best treatments to help rejuvenate your skin, a Sciton Micro Laser Peel is something that you should consider. Read on to learn more.

What is a Sciton Micro Laser Peel?
The Sciton Micro Laser Peel is designed to remove the top few layers of your skin in order to encourage the regrowth and production of newer, healthier skin. Once the Micro Laser Peel’s laser is brushed over the skin, it removes the top layer of skin. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow which result in less wrinkles and a more even colored skin tone.

What is the Procedure Like?
Before you undergo any type of procedure, it’s beneficial to know exactly what you can expect from it. Before treatment starts, your skin will be cleaned and Dr. Daniel Tresley will then put on the proper protective eyewear— both on you and himself. After everything is prepped and prepared, Dr. Tresley will then start the treatment which should be fairly painless because only the top parts of the skin are being targeted. Lasting about 15-30 minutes, you won’t have to take off a substantial amount of time from your day in order to get the procedure one.

What are Results Like?
After about 3-5 days following your Sciton Micro Laser Peel, you will start to see that your skin is not only smoother looking and feeling, but that your fine lines and wrinkles are a bit less apparent as well. In order to maintain these results, it is recommended that you get a peel a few times a year depending on your skin type and age.

How to Tell It’s Not Just Your Vision

istock_4690025_smallAging can sometimes feel like a guessing game— you’re gaining weight, is it because of aging? You’re more tired, is it because of aging? You are having a hard time seeing, is it because of aging? And although the answer to the above questions can most likely be attributed to aging, when it comes to things such as your vision, is it simply caused by aging or is it something else that is causing you to not be able to see as well? Read on to learn more.

How to Tell If It Is Your Vision
As you age, it can be hard to tell if your vision is simply deteriorating because you’re aging or you’re just having a harder time focusing because you’re just more tired. There are a few ways that you can tell if it is your vision that is causing you difficulty including:

  • Extreme fatigue: when you are suffering from vision problems and your eyes are constantly trying to focus, it can place an undue amount of strain on your eyes causing them to feel heavy and fatigued.
  • Blurred Vision: Is your vision blurry when you are either trying to see an object in front of you or far away? This is another large indication that you are suffering from vision problems and that you need glasses or contacts.
  • Headaches: Are you suffering from more headaches now than you used to? Similar to the strain placed on your eyes that causes you to feel fatigued, this same strain can cause you to experience headaches.

How to Tell If It’s Old Age
As a condition that Daniel Tresley specializes in, Ptosis is a condition that causes your eyelids to become droopy which can often be mistaken for vision problems. However, unlike actual vision problems, Ptosis is a condition that if left untreated, it can cause your eyelids to droop so far that it can be difficult to see as clearly. Luckily, with ptosis surgery, Dr. Tresley can raise the eyelid back to its natural position by reattaching the muscle properly to where it should be.

Sometimes it can be hard to distinguish between vision problems and Ptosis. If you are having a hard time distinguishing between the two, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley in order to schedule a consultation.
