Why You Should Choose Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Reasons to choose laser skin rejuvenation abound. A very precise treatment, laser skin rejuvenation causes little damage to surrounding skin and tissue. Laser skin rejuvenation is so precise in fact that it can safely and effectively treat even delicate areas, such as the skin around the eyes. Two main types of lasers are used for laser skin rejuvenation – the CO2 laser and the Erbium laser. The CO2 laser treats cosmetic problems such as scars, warts, wrinkles and enlarged oil glands. The Erbium laser removes surface-level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on areas such as the face, hands, neck and chest.
Regardless of which type of laser is used, laser skin rejuvenation is far superior to other skin rejuvenation methods, such as chemical peels. While both types of procedures exfoliate the skin, laser skin rejuvenation poses a smaller risk of complications and longer lasting results. And laser skin rejuvenation treatments don’t carry the nasty side effects of chemical peels, which tend to leave pores wider and more visible as well as increase the chances of hyperpigmentation.
What’s more, laser skin rejuvenation works lightning fast. The effects of laser skin rejuvenation can be seen immediately, and the skin’s texture continues to improve for the next several months to a year. The best part? Laser skin rejuvenation results are remarkably long lived, usually lasting for a number of years.
Are You an Ideal Candidate?
Most likely. Laser skin rejuvenation works magic on many skin types and tones, depending on the type of laser used. The most ideal candidates for laser skin rejuvenation are people who have:
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Non-responsive skin after a facelift
- Fine lines or wrinkles around or under the eyes, forehead or mouth
- Fair, untanned skin
People with active acne or very dark skin may not be ideal candidates for laser skin rejuvenation. This is because laser treatments can make acne worse, and, in patients with darker skin tones, they can also produce hyperpigmentation. Other people who may not reap benefits from laser skin rejuvenation treatment include those who have:
- Oily skin
- Scarring from minor cuts
- Excessively saggy skin
- Certain skin conditions
- Cold sores or herpes outbreaks
Smokers and those taking certain medications also won’t benefit greatly from laser skin rejuvenation.
It’s important to have reasonable expectations in general – laser skin rejuvenation doesn’t produce perfect skin, but rather improves the appearance of damaged skin that has aged over the years.
Prepare to Rejuvenate
Each skin rejuvenation laser works differently and has slightly different side effects. The CO2 laser removes thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage to surrounding tissue using very short pulsed light energy or continuous light beams. These lasers successfully treat wrinkles, scars, benign skin growths, birthmarks and other skin conditions.
The Erbium laser works in a similar fashion by vaporizing the outer layers of skin, causing the skin underneath to contract. The result? Increased collagen production. The Erbium laser is designed to remove moderately deep wrinkles and improve the overall color and skin texture of the face, neck and hands. The Erbium laser’s “cool” light beam results in less post-operative redness and swelling along with faster healing time.
Laser skin rejuvenation procedures are fairly straightforward. They’re generally performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia as well as oral and intravenous sedative medications. The time it takes to complete treatment varies considerably. Depending on whether it’s a partial or full-face treatment, a laser skin rejuvenation procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.
Afterwards, the medical practitioner will cover the treated area with a protective ointment or a nonstick dressing. These should remain undisturbed for 24 hours. For several days afterwards, the area will be painful and swollen, and to relieve these symptoms, you’ll be advised to take over the counter medications. You’ll likely also be advised to clean the treatment site two-to-five times a day with a saline solution, and then apply an ointment such as Vaseline. This post-operative care will help prevent any scab formation and scarring.
How long it will take to recover depends on the type of laser used for the laser skin rejuvenation treatment – most people usually recover from a CO2 laser procedure within two weeks, while faster recovery can be expected with the Erbium laser (most folks recover within a week). You can expect any post-procedural redness associated with the laser skin rejuvenation procedure to subside within a few months following treatment. It’s important you wear sunblock for several months following the procedure to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation and sun damage.
You can generally expect a laser skin rejuvenation treatment to be trouble-free. But although complications caused by laser skin rejuvenation are rare, they can still happen. They might include hyperpigmentation, bacterial infections, milia, reactivation of a herpes simplex cold sore, and scarring.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Produces Results – Brilliantly!
Expect brilliant results with laser skin rejuvenation. The effects of laser skin rejuvenation are dramatic, immediate, long lasting — and they continue to improve over time. Of course, results can vary depending on the type of laser used and the cosmetic issue being addressed. Wrinkles caused by aging and long-term sun exposure tend to respond extremely well to laser skin rejuvenation, while wrinkles caused by repeated movement and muscle use can be improved but not entirely eliminated. Laser skin rejuvenation has also proven less effective on severe acne scars. That said, laser skin rejuvenation can significantly improve mild or moderate acne scars.
Laser skin rejuvenation makes it possible to recapture that lovely radiant, youthful glow. It’s one of the safest, most precise and effective cosmetic procedures currently available. So what are you waiting for? Schedule a free, no obligation laser skin rejuvenation consultation today at LaserAway.
