Which Laser Skin Treatment is Right For Me?
There are many different types of skin laser treatments out there to help fight the signs of aging, acne, blotches, scars, wrinkles and lines caused by time and sun damage. Laser skin treatments don’t only help clear away some of these blemishes, but they can also help your face look younger and healthier.
To decide what skin resurfacing treatment is best for you, you must understand the differences between them.
What Are Laser Skin Treatments?
Scarring, age spots, acne, pigmentation and unwanted hairs aren’t exactly most people’s idea of good skin. That’s why there are different types of skin laser treatments! Choosing the right one simply depends on what kind of skin issues you’re dealing with.
You can address sun damage, acne, surgical scarring or stretch marks and reveal the underlying radiance of your skin with a skin rejuvenation laser skin treatment. There are a lot of skin irregularities that can occur from the sun or various skin disorders and textural irregularities. Wrinkles, sunspots and visible blood vessels are all examples of issues that skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing can help.
Procedures like laser resurfacing, mechanical resurfacing, dermal fillers, spider vein treatments, chemical peels and even injectable products can make a huge improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These different types of skin laser treatments make a huge difference for someone struggling with skin damage since they can address the entire face] or specific regions, such as common trouble spots like around the mouth or eyes.
They can also be used to reduce the appearance of sun and age spots, acne scars, and many other skin conditions. This is an especially good procedure for winter months because the best way to heal quickly post-treatment is to avoid harsh UV rays.
Some skin is more prone to hyperpigmentation than others. Complexion blending can help darker skin spots from acne, sun damage, injury, dryness, irritation and many other variables. Complexion blending is a simple laser skin treatment used to lighten hyperpigmentation so that the overall complexion of the skin is far more even.
Complexion blending can also help create a more even texture to the skin by reducing pore appearance and reducing mild wrinkles or light scarring. The treatment is entirely painless and does not require downtime, so you can expect to get right back to your daily activities after your appointment.
Typically, complexion blending is a once-per-month treatment done for five months, though the exact treatment plan varies depending on what’s needed.
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin resurfacing procedure that uses an infrared light source to tighten skin through a process of tightening the collagen under the skin’s surface. This causes the skin to contract, resulting in the tightening of any loose skin. Innovative Forma technology is used to gently lift and tighten the skin to result in a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Facial skin tightening offers results immediately after the treatment. While this procedure is not quite as dramatic of a change as a facelift, there is no downtime, making it much more convenient. The instant results and easy recovery make this procedure increasingly popular. For optimal results, typically two or three procedures are required, spread across two or three months.
An additional benefit to skin tightening is that the procedure prompts the growth of new collagen in the treated areas, causing untreated areas to absorb more collagen. This regeneration of natural collagen not only allows for immediate smoother, softer skin, but the effects continue to improve over the next few months as the skin naturally restores its collagen supply.
What’s the Best Laser Skin Treatment for Me?
In order to find the exact best skin resurfacing treatment for you, it’s best to address your concerns with a professional board-certified plastic surgeon. Many conditions can require a series of treatments, but the most important aspect is for the patient to care for his or her future skin in order to achieve the best results.
