What is laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a form of laser resurfacing that can treat minor facial flaws and improve the skin’s appearance through the use of a laser. There are 2 types of laser treatments that patients will need to discuss with their practitioner to determine which option is best suited for their individual needs. An Ablative laser is the more invasive method and requires a longer recovery time. It works by removing the epidermis, or thin outer skin layer, while heating the dermis, or underlying skin, to stimulate growth of fresh, new collagen fibers. The treated area will appear smoother and lighter as the skin grows and heals. The other type of laser is a non-ablative laser which is a less invasive method that stimulates collagen growth without removing the outer layer of skin. While it is less invasive, therefore requiring less recovery time, it also is less effective. Laser resurfacing treatments can be effective in decreasing the appearance and prominence of fine lines, as well as improving the appearance of your complexion from the effects of sun damage or scars. Excessive and sagging skin cannot be treated through the use of laser therapy.
How long does laser skin rejuvenation last?
The lasting effects of laser skin rejuvenation will vary depending on the individual and the treatment they received. Laser skin rejuvenation patients can expect long-lasting results from their laser treatment, with individual results being unique for each patient. Many factors will affect the longevity of the treatment results such as the type of treatment, extent and invasiveness involved in the treatment, skin type and other factors that vary for each treatment. Laser hair removal results can be prolonged through regular maintenance, with the initial treatment expected to last up to a full year. Laser acne treatment results can last for several years. To understand the results you can expect from your treatment, it is important to discuss your options with the practitioner who will be performing the treatment. They will be able to walk you through the procedure, any risks you need to be aware of, what to expect for your recovery and what you can expect for your final results and any maintenance you need to be aware of.
What does laser skin rejuvenation treat?
Laser Acne treatments use lasers and lights to help reduce acne, however these treatments alone don’t often clear acne. Patients also typically need several treatments to see significant results in the severity of their acne, with varying results from one individual to the next.
Warts can be removed through the use of lasers, but it is often a painful and invasive procedure and recommended only when other methods haven’t worked. Warts that don’t respond to topical treatments or are extensive in their size and quantity are typically the cases where a doctor would recommend a laser treatment.
Face rejuvenation can be achieved through the use of lasers for treatment of age spots, fine wrinkles, uneven skin texture or tone and sun damaged skin.
Wrinkle reduction can be achieved using laser therapy on various areas of the face, hands and neck. Laser therapy can be successful in reducing and eliminating fine wrinkles as well as deep wrinkles, depending on the type of treatment used.
Rosacea can be treated using different types of light and laser therapies, depending on the symptoms of rosacea to be treated. There are several laser therapy options that will treat the different symptoms patients suffer from.
Pigment reduction will need to be properly diagnosed prior to laser therapy treatment to ensure if it is not a sign of a larger problem such as melanoma. Once confirmed to not be melanoma, a laser can be used to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin in as little as one to two treatments. Your practitioner can confirm how many treatments will be required based on the extent of the pigment damage.
Skin tags can be removed through the use of a laser beam focused on the targeted area. The laser beam works by evaporating the skin tag in thin layers, resulting in a quick recovery time with no additional treatments required.
Acne Scar removal can be handled through the use of lasers to minimize the appearance of acne scars however it isn’t guaranteed to remove 100%, even after several treatments. Skin can be improved through laser acne treatments, but it won’t be perfect. Treatments are also very specific to targeted areas of the skin and can cause noticeable differences in the skin from the untreated areas to the treated areas of the skin.
What are the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation has long-lasting effects for many patients, with a wide assortment of treatment options available depending on the area of the body and reason for the treatment. While some methods can be invasive, many are fairly non-invasive with recovery time lasting a few days to a couple weeks and is far less invasive than cosmetic surgery procedures. Laser therapy works by targeting the skin’s collagen and regenerating it to improve the skin’s appearance and elasticity.
Where can I get laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation can often be performed in a qualified, certified medical professional’s office. The treatments are typically performed by a dermatologist in a medical clinic or a medical spa. Due to the use of lasers, prospective patients will need to ensure that the clinic or medi spa they are looking into has properly trained and qualified staff to perform the advanced treatments.
