Why Laser Treatments?
When a person starts to consider cosmetic procedures to help slow down the aging process, they often automatically go to the idea of plastic surgery because that was the only option available for quite some time. But once people start to do their research, they realize that is not all the cosmetic surgery world has to offer. They have other, less invasive procedure options to help them gain the desired appearance they want. Laser treatments are a highly effective procedures because they are minimally invasive and can give you the desired look you are hoping for with little to no downtime after the procedure is completed.
While surgery often can produce the most dramatic results, less invasive techniques are often a good option for younger patients with less extensive signs of aging, and those who do not want to undergo surgery or are not candidates for surgery. Dr. Buckingham will be able to guide you on the correct path to ensure that your goals are met and that you are happy with whatever procedure you opt for.
Are Laser Skin Treatments Right For Me?
Only you and a qualified surgeon can determine if laser skin treatments are right for you. When you are tying to decide what is right for you, think carefully about what your areas of concerns are, what your desired results are, and what you would like to happen during your procedure. You may consider whether you want an invasive, minimally invasive or non-invasive procedure, the amount of downtime you can afford, and whether or not maintenance is required, such as with injectables which require repeat treatments over time.
Once you have an idea of what you want, you can meet with Dr. Buckingham for a consultation to develop the best treatment plan for your individual needs.
