Many people devote a great amount of time to their appearance. Although the volume of their hair and perfect winged eyeliner play a role in beauty, both require a good base to work with: healthy skin. Despite adherence to the most extravagant and consistent skincare routines, sometimes your skin color, texture, and quality can become compromised; that’s where aesthetic lasers come in!
Laser skin resurfacing treatments rely on the remarkable laser technology we have available to us today. Focused beams of light (at a dose of 5 to 10 Joules per centimeter squared) are applied to the outermost layers of skin; this removes damaged skin, and preserves and stimulates the healthy skin layers that lie beneath. This, in turn, stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. Let’s take a look at three reasons why you should consider skin laser therapy.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles: Aging happens to all of us, but at different rates. Fine lines and wrinkles — particularly around the mouth and eyes — are one of the most noticeable changes our bodies undergo. By softening these tell-tale signs, your entire demeanor will change along with your skin.
- Treat brown spots, redness, or discoloration: Everybody’s skin is unique. Spots and discoloration can occur due to sun exposure, aging, or simple skin pigmentation issues; some patients just want to remove unwanted freckles. You’ll find that your skin tone is more even and balanced when you eliminate your brown spots and correct your skin pigmentation.
- Tighten skin and encourage collagen production: Your skin loses elasticity as you age, allowing the power of gravity to pull everything down. Laser resurfacing both encourages the production of collagen and promotes collagen absorption in the surrounding, untreated areas. The final result is skin that stays where it’s supposed to!
Cosmetic lasers have been in use for several decades, explaining why they’re used in a number of medicinal fields. There are ophthalmic lasers that can turn back the clock on your eyesight, skin lasers that are focused on removing hair, and even veterinary laser equipment that relieves pets of their pain. With the help of laser technology, you can say goodbye to saggy, discolored skin and hello to a firmer, more balanced you!
