Improve Your Skin with Laser Treatments

As every woman ages, it is inevitable that no matter how many creams, sunscreens, or scrubs she uses, she will come out with creases, scars, and spots.  Even the highest quality products on the market won’t make wrinkles or acne disappear. There is hope, however, for regaining that fresh and vibrant look that each woman strives for when she wakes up in the morning. Recent studies have shown that laser treatments can effectively address many issues women have with their skin.

One of the most effectively treated dermal maladies that can be addressed with laser therapy is acne. As though you didn’t already have enough worries with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne has somehow squeezed its way from your adolescence into your adulthood. One way to level the playing field and reduce the appearance of scars is to see your dermatologist about laser therapy.

Although many people can successfully treat their acne with over the counter creams and cleansers, some find that exploring other options is necessary. In this case, the lasers work below the sebaceous glands (these are the structures within your skin responsible for causing the blemish) addressing the problem at its source. The lasers create a minimal thermal injury, which effects long-term treatment for acne.

If acne is no longer an issue for you, but you have noticed crows-feet, fine lines, or wrinkles on your face, it may be a good time to consult a dermal specialist. In some instances, wrinkles can be reduced using lasers that by eliminate the damaged skin cells and encouraging the collagen to support the healthy re-growth of new cells.

Occasionally, wrinkles can be reduced by simply stimulating the growth of collagen alone. It should be noted that although laser surgery is effective at significantly reducing the appearance of lines, in most cases it will not completely remove wrinkles. Treatments like Botox and collagen injections have also been shown to effectively promote smoother looking skin, and may be a less invasive option.

Additionally, much progress has been made in the treatment of rosacea, which is a condition caused by the presence of several blood vessels and capillaries beneath the skin. Dermatologists typically recommend a combination of laser treatment and topical therapies in order to effectively address rosacea.  Utilizing a few different therapies ensures that the inflammatory nature of rosacea is treated while vascular issues are being tended to. Further therapies for rosacea include avoidance of any substances or activities which may stimulate a flare up such as prolonged sun exposure, high levels of stress, or any excessive topical irritants.

Laser treatments have also been used for therapy on dermal issues in areas other than the face. Problems like spider veins and stretch marks, commonly seen on the legs, can also be approached with laser treatments. If vitamin E supplements or various topical oils have not improved your condition, laser therapy can offer a reasonable answer to your issue. When special lasers are targeted at the veins of interest, a blood clot forms, causing your spider veins to collapse and be reintegrated into your immune system and are thus no longer visible on the body.

    Laser is usually recommended for light skin and dark hair. The laser passes through the light skin (which contains little melanin) and zaps the melanin rich follicles.

    Laser hair removal is not 100% permanent, but it will remove up to 90% of unwanted hair, and hair re-growth is much lighter. Most people say that laser hair removal is less painful than waxing, threading or electrolysis.
