Using Lasers for Skin Rejuvenation
If you're looking to improve the quality of your skin, by tightening, smoothing and erasing wrinkles, you don't have to turn to plastic surgery.

Today there are so many non-surgical ways to keep you looking young using skin treatments via lasers and other machines.

Pelleve is a popular treatment based on radio frequency waves. The procedure reorganizes and tightens the collagen in your skin, as well as stimulates the production of more collagen.

It's a perfect option for the patient who isn't quite ready for surgery.

The device emits the radio waves which go right underneath the skin layer; it doesn't hurt and is completely safe.

This treatment is a step up from the previously popular thermage, for a few reasons. One, thermage was quite expensive and could also be quite painful. Also, many women who received thermage treatments were quite disappointed in the results.

Join Dr. Jeannie Chung as she describes these treatments in detail, giving you an idea of what might be the best option for you.
