Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the most effective and long-lasting methods of facial rejuvenation there is. It's also non-invasive and fairly painless compared to surgical methods. It sounds perfect, but as with any other cosmetic treatment it's important to educate yourself before you make your final decision.
Here's everything you need to know about this wonder treatment:
It Pierces The Deepest Layers Of Your Skin
A laser skin treatment removes layer by layer of skin, allowing new skin cells to form that is more youthful in appearance. That means it can target the damage done years ago just as well as the damage done at the beach a few days ago. The lasers operate with extremely high precision, so small areas of your skin can be treated without impacting the rest of your face.
It Works To Undo Many Types Of Skin Damage
Very few things escape the grasp of a laser skin treatment. Sun damage, botches, scars, acne wrinkles and lines all see positive improvement with laser skin treatment. Although the effectiveness will ultimately depend on the severity of the issue, most patients are very satisfied with their results after a few treatments.
It Stimulates Natural Collagen Production
Many of the healing properties associated with laser skin rejuvenation are natural. It simply removes damaged skin and allows new, undamaged skin to grow in its place. It also stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the main protein found in your skin, and it's responsible for its youthfulness and elasticity.
As you age, you lose collagen and your skin begins to wrinkle and sag. Collagen injections are a very popular method of treating age related skin damage, but with laser skin treatment you get all-natural collagen production without the invasive procedure.
There Is Usually A Healing Process
Although it's a non-surgical procedure, many laser skin treatments still require a bit of downtime for healing. Exactly how long will depend on what type of laser is used and your overall health. Most treatments will be fully healed within 2 to 3 weeks. You can still go outside and live as you normally would, you'll just have to be a bit more careful in the sun.
It's Best Performed By An Experienced Professional
In the right hands, laser skin rejuvenation can be a very effective treatment. When performed by someone without experience the results can be mixed at best. And don't mistake equipment for experience. They aren't the same thing and no tool can make up for a lack of experience.
The lesson here is that you shouldn't just go for the first cosmetic surgeon who offers a you a deal or choose based on who has the latest and greatest equipment. A skilled hand is the single most important tool there is when it comes to laser skin treatments.
