All You Need to Know About Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Aug 31, 2019 | Anti-aging, Facials

Laser skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that helps resurface the skin and eliminate the effects of sun damage, aging and several other facial skin disorders. Out of the many reasons that are responsible for the widespread practice of this treatment, its effectiveness, convenience and safety are the topmost reasons. Also, its cost-effectiveness has made it a preference over other costly skin treatments. 

Laser skin rejuvenation treatment dissolves layer by layer the molecular bonds of the damaged skin, until a fresh layer surfaces. Moreover, it stimulates the production of collagen, builds new skin cells and brings about fresher, healthier and smoother-looking skin.  

The Ideal Candidates for Laser Skin Rejuvenation

People who have fine lines, wrinkles due to age, hyper-pigmentation and scars on their skin, are the ones who mostly opt for this cosmetic treatment. However, the ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing is the one who has non-oily and elastic skin. It is also advisable that the person who goes for laser skin resurfacing must not be consuming any medications. 

The Procedure

Laser skin rejuvenation is a common procedure done at med spas and is performed with local anesthesia. Once the area prepped for treatment goes numb, the practitioner uses a laser device to vaporize the outer most layer of your skin. Once the laser dissolves the skin layer, the fresher, smoother and younger looking skin that hides underneath is revealed. The duration of the treatment depends on the area that is being treated. However, on average a normal treatment typically takes 30 to 45 minutes. 

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing has benefits that amount to getting youthfulness and beauty of your skin back. 

  • It removes fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, blemishes and birthmarks.
  • Overexposure of skin to the sun causes it to become rough and course. Laser skin resurfacing improves such skin conditions.
  • Enhances the production of collagen in the lower dermis.
  • It easily removes moles and warts from the skin’s surface.
  • It can also treat the very early stages of skin cancer.

Recovery & Results

The recovery time is also dependent on the area of skin being treated and the type of laser being used to treat skin irregularities. Some invasive treatments may result in great improvements, but they will require an extended duration of time to recover. However, the regular treatments of laser skin rejuvenation do not require such taxing downtime.
