Acclaimed and highly accredited dermatologist and skin cancer research scientist, Dr. Dennis Gross, is not only well known for his award-winning skincare line, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare, but also for his unique and effective non-invasive aesthetic treatments at his practice on the Upper East Side. With a bevy of services ranging from injectables to professional peels, Dr. Gross is a proponent of cocktailing and customizing treatments based upon each patient’s particular needs and skincare goals. His step-by-step approach begins with an honest evaluation and works to address concerns in an effective way by combining synergistic treatments.
One of his latest and most buzzed about treatments is the 3-D Collagen Skin Tightening Laser Treatment, which combines two state-of-the-art lasers that work in synergy utilizing different energies to smooth and firm. Results are a natural luminosity that also provides the long-term result of stimulating new collagen production. The first laser used is the GentleMax Pro, which features dual wavelength technology that works by heating the skin to encourage the fibroblast cells to stimulate collagen. The second laser, the VBeam, follows to reduce any redness caused by the previous laser while also additionally stimulating the production of collagen.
The pairing of these two lasers during the same treatment results in zero downtime and maximizes the production of collagen while also lifting, firming and tightening the skin by rejuvenating it in 3-D. The treatment can be performed not only on the face but also on the much neglected neck and décolleté areas as well. It can even be combined with Dr. Gross’ famous Alpha Beta Peel, leaving your skin dramatically vibrant and smooth.
It is recommended to do the 3-D Collagen Laser Treatment in a series of three, however that depends on each individual’s skin type. Although your complexion will look instantly glowing and plump, tightening will slowly occur in about a week or two after, as well as an overall reduction in fine lines and diminished wrinkles over six weeks.
