5 Benefits of Laser Treatments

5 Benefits of Laser Treatments

As we begin to age, we notice our skin begins to change. From wrinkles to spider veins, there are many concerns that start to surface which we would like to change, but topical treatments only go so far. If you’re looking for a rejuvenation regimen that is effective and precise, you’ll want to learn about laser treatments. Lasers work deep within the skin to restore it and offer a more youthful and natural appearance.

Eliminate Acne

From acne to acne scars, laser treatments are effective at reducing the signs of blemishes on the skin and providing individuals with clear skin.  Lasers work to penetrate deep within the dermis to kill the bacteria that causes acne. The high-concentration of monochromatic light evens out the pigmentation and helps to reduce scarring. The combination of efforts means many patients can benefit from two procedures at once. First, there is the reduction of the bacteria, and second, you can rid unwanted acne scarring that has carried over from your youth. The result is fresh, youthful looking skin.

Even Out Skin Tone

Lasers are the latest technology for skin resurfacing, that not only reduce scarring but help restore tone. They can remove wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and cheeks. Additionally, it can help those who suffer from sunspots that are from overexposure to the sun or aging. The laser works by gently vaporizing the outer layer of sun-damaged or acne scarring to reveal smooth, fresh new skin underneath. Similarly, the laser works to phase out fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure gives your physician control over the application. Recovery time lasts about two weeks and works best for lighter skin tones.

Remove Hair

If you’re not interested in shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser treatments are an effective way to eliminate them altogether. Effective on almost every area of the body, lasers give precise control over what hairs to remove and can even target hairs that are dark, thick, and coarse.  The procedure is fast, which means your physician can work quickly through larger areas of the body. For example, the upper lip can be completed in minutes, and the back can take roughly an hour. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can target multiples hairs at once. The result for most patients is permanent hair loss.

Get Rid of Spider Veins

The tiny red and blue veins with a thread-like appearance near the surface of the skin are known as spider veins. They are caused by increased pressure on the veins and can appear anywhere on the body. However, most individuals will find them on their legs and thighs. For years, there wasn’t much you could do once they started to appear, but with the introduction of laser treatments, adults now have the option to banish them for good. The procedure uses a focused beam of light on the spider vein. As the laser begins to heat up, the vein is destroyed and reabsorbed into the body after 4-6 weeks. Lasers offer precision, which means physicians can target the specific area without damaging the surrounding areas.

Feminine Rejuvenation

For women who have given birth, suffer from urge incontinence, or who have had breast cancer and can’t be on hormones, lasers are a safe and minimally invasive procedure providing tightening, strengthening, and smoothing. It can also help with unwanted secretions, increase blood flow, and sensitivity. The lasers work to stimulate and promote the production of collagen. New skin cells will be produced in the underlying layer of tissue bringing about a smoother, tighter, and healthier skin. Before treatment, a pelvic exam should be performed, and the patient must have had a routine Pap Smear within the last six months. Results are achieved over a span of three months, with the inclusion of rest and temporary abstinence as part of the recovery process.
