Laser skin treatment is a preferred course of action for treating many skin conditions. This form of skin therapy is far more effective than creams and serums and is a better option than many other cosmetic procedures as it is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime.
Here are some of the common skin issues that laser skin therapy can address:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Laser skin treatment tightens the skin by using heat to stimulate the collagen under the skin’s surface. This process encourages collagen growth in the area that is treated and causes the absorption of collagen from surrounding areas. This regeneration of natural collagen will cause wrinkles and facial lines to be filled. Results will be seen immediately and will gradually improve as the skin continues to replenish its collagen reserves.
Another benefit of laser skin treatment is the appearance of smaller poles. Pores are simply openings in the skin. While you cannot actually make your pores smaller, you can make them appear that way. Laser treatment will cause the pores to tighten giving the impression of reduced size.
Laser skin therapy can also be used for pigment removal—good news if you have unwanted freckles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, age spots or birthmarks. Laser treatment is effective for this purpose because the cells containing excessive pigmentation will absorb the energy from the laser without the surrounding areas being affected. When this energy is absorbed it will break up the pigment which will then be flushed out by the body, leaving you with an evener skin tone.
Scar removal is another way laser therapy can be used to improve the appearance of your skin. Laser skin treatments can significantly diminish scars and in some cases remove them completely.
In this procedure, the laser is used over the scarred area to remove damaged skin cells. The laser beams penetrate the inner layers of the skin to restore its supportive structure by stimulating collagen growth. As the skin heals, it will shed the old, damaged tissue for new cells. This will give you smoother skin.
