Is it Already Time to Consider the Holidays?

Holiday Facial Rejuvenation

While Halloween has not yet come and gone, the Holiday Season is closer than you might expect – and now is a fantastic time to start considering non-surgical facial rejuvenation to help ensure you look and feel your most confident before its major social and familial events. Dermal fillers and laser treatments are both fantastic ways to address various concerns, but their full results can take a few weeks to become apparent. Scheduling your appointment now allows for plenty of time for your results to set in, allowing you to look your very best before the busiest season begins.

We are pleased to offer dermal fillers from both the Juvéderm® and Restylane® families. Trusted, effective, and safe, these fillers can be used to address skin laxity and signs of aging throughout the face, helping to restore a more youthful shape to multiple treatment areas.

What Can the Clear + Brilliant Laser Do?

Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatments

Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is a safe and effective way to address signs of aging such as fine lines and deeper wrinkles. It can be used to reduce the visibility of:

  • Forehead creases across the brow
  • Frown lines in between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet next to the eyes
  • Laugh lines around the eyes and mouth

Clear + Brilliant can also be used to reduce pore size, treat melasma and brown spots, and improve the texture of the skin, helping to restore a smooth, attractive, and youthful appearance to the treatment area.

Popular Clear + Brilliant treatment areas include the face and neck, décolletage, and hands, but the treatment can be used on nearly any part of the body. If you are curious to learn where Clear + Brilliant may be able to help you reach your goals, please use the contact form on this page or call our Mechanicsburg office to schedule an appointment today.  

Does the Clear + Brilliant Laser Tighten Skin?

Skin laxity is one of the most common issues to accompany aging. Clear + Brilliant treatment is not designed to address pronounced laxity or to tighten skin. 

We are pleased to offer a comprehensive range of non-surgical skin tightening options including Radiofrequency treatments and fractional laser treatments that can address sagging and loose skin. During your initial consultation, we will listen carefully to your concerns and provide you with information about all of your treatment options.

Immediate & Progressive Results

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle treatment designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Initial results are often visible within just a few short days with improvements continuing to progress as your body ups it production of these important proteins. Because it is so gentle, it may take more than one treatment to achieve preferred results. We will discuss how many treatments you can expect during your initial consultation.

At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we utilize the Clear + Brilliant Perméa device to apply a treatment serum following application. This helps to improve comfort and speed the healing process. However, even without this service, there is little to no downtime associated with Clear + Brilliant Treatment.

When is the Best Time to Get Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Woman getting laser skin resurfacingLaser skin resurfacing works best on lighter, un-tanned skin, and ultraviolet rays from the sun can negatively impact your outcome after treatment. Because of this, winter is the best time to get laser skin resurfacing. Getting the treatment during this season gives you time to heal and allows your results to fully come out before you show them off in the summer.

Winter in central Pennsylvania can feel like it lasts forever, but it doesn’t have to be all cold, dark, and dreary. Laser skin resurfacing from Dr. Deborah Farrell at Farrell Plastic Surgery and Laser Center can turn your winter into a season of excitement and anticipation as you get ready to display your new, youthful look. Read on to learn about why winter is the best time to get laser skin resurfacing. More »
