Who is a candidate for a laser facial?
If have spent time in the sun, you may have signs of aging starting to appear. These include age spots, sun spots, irregular pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. You also benefit from a laser facial if you desire a smoother skin texture.
Laser is particularly useful for treating:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone
Other pigmented lesions
How does the laser improve skin appearance?
Laser facials direct a beam of light to the surface of your skin. The energy from the laser addresses irregularities, such as sunspots, without scarring or damage.
Simultaneously, it stimulates collagen production to tighten the surrounding tissue, improving skin texture and reducing signs of aging. Collagen is a natural compound that your body produces to give strength to skin tissue.
What are the benefits of laser facials?
Chemical peels and abrasive scrubs remove an outer layer of skin and require significant healing time. Laser facials penetrate the outer layer of skin to stimulate the underlying vessels and pigment, but the outer skin isn’t damaged.
Do laser facials hurt?
Most patients experience just minimal discomfort. You may feel some initial soreness that’s easily relieved with the laser’s cold-air cooling system that periodically blows cool air onto the treatment area as the laser works.
You can return to daily activities immediately following a laser facial, but you should wear sunscreen to protect your treated skin.
