The New and Experienced Woman's Anti-Aging Secret

We all come across the beautiful and flawless middle-aged women advertised today; gorgeous gray/silver hair and the perfect balance of youth and sophistication. 

When you flip through everyday magazines that these women are seen in you might be saying to yourself,

"Why do not they have crow feet wrinkles, or pigmentation and spider veins around their cheeks?.......Oh, it must be photoshopped."

Well it is not all photoshop! Even though I cannot vouch for each company that uses these beautiful models, they definitely have a few additional secrets to share.

The second response usually would be

"Oh, everyone knows about Botox."

This secret is more than just a minor face filling. Laser facials are booming with popularity as a treatment for several cosmetic flaws, including acne, wrinkles and more.

You might be saying now,

"What? Ouch!" 

But our patients seem to find laser facials quite relaxing.

These type of facials have several benefits including a wonderful soft glow after you hope off the table. Men and women have found that it quickly reduces wrinkles as well as absorbs pigmented lesions and spider veins.

Vermont Laser Services recommends this treatment seasonally. Between winter dinners, summer BBQ's and those special events between your friends and family will be saying how youthful and glowing you look year round.  

Forget about the anti-aging creams that you have stacked in your medicine cabinet, the money you spend on cosmetic at-home treatments can quickly be turned into real results.
