Anti-Aging Treatment Q & A

What Is the TA65 Supplement?

TA-65 is a supplement that helps to protect and restore telomeres, the chains of repetitive DNA at the end of a chromosome. Telomeres protect DNA and are linked to the aging process. Shorter telomeres are linked with cellular aging and dysfunction, which can result in more severe signs of aging. TA-65 supplements stimulate an enzyme called telomerase which can help to slow or even reverse the telomere breakdown that naturally occurs as a person ages.

What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing?

Dr. Yuen uses lasers and other techniques to rejuvenate or resurface the skin by removing the top layers of dull, dead skin to reveal the healthy, youthful skin beneath.

Laser skin resurfacing treats damage and signs of aging by sending pulses of highly focused light energy to different layers of the skin. The laser breaks down damaged tissues and gently removes dead, dull layers of skin, revealing healthier skin. Laser treatments also stimulate the skin’s natural healing response, strengthening and improving skin over time. Lasers provide precise treatments that are customized to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual patient. Treatments often take less than an hour, and a numbing gel is applied to the skin before treatment to reduce discomfort and keep the skin cool during treatment.

What Skin Conditions Are Treated with Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation helps skin to look brighter and more youthful. In addition to eliminating impurities and promoting circulation. Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing techniques are used to treat:

  • Discoloration and hyperpigmentation like age spots, sun spots, freckles, and brown spots
  • Loose or lax skin
  • Removal of scars, including acne scars
  • Uneven skin texture or rough spots
  • Signs of premature aging including fine lines and wrinkles
