| emmett plastic surgeryPatients in the Denver, CO area and beyond who are seeking solutions for aging skin on the face and neck are encouraged to work with Dr. Jennifer Emmett to discuss the benefits of skin resurfacing with the Helios device. Helios offers a revolutionary way for patients to fight aging skin including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and poor skin texture and tone.

What is the Helios treatment?

While many dermatologists and plastic surgeons use laser light to resurface the skin, Helios treatment works differently. Instead, Helios uses helium to eliminate layers of the skin’s surface at lower temperatures, ensuring the protection of the surrounding tissue. Using this method, this treatment reduces the potential for complications often associates with laser skin resurfacing. Additionally, this treatment can remove the epidermis and tighten the dermis to completely eliminate fine lines and wrinkles present on the face.

Where can Helios treatment be performed?

Helios treatment is best used on the facial area and can be used even around the eyes and mouth and down to the neck. Most patients do not experience pain or discomfort during their treatment, and find it to be a relatively non-invasive treatment when compared to traditional laser therapies. While it does require some social downtime for recovery and special care to keep the skin lubricated following treatment, it is often well-tolerated by patients as it produces amazing, permanent results.

Can I eliminate aging entirely?

There is no real way to combat the natural signs of aging. However, routine treatments of Helios over time can help in reducing some of the fine lines and wrinkles that are associated with aging skin. Most patients find that with proper care of their skin, they can slow the process of aging and see gradual changes instead of dramatic skin laxity, volume loss, and deep wrinkles that will develop if patients do not intervene.
