Laser treatments are not what they used to be. Advancements in laser technology have provided men and women with a number of ways to effectively address specific skin concerns without damaging their healthy skin cells. 

If you are considering using laser to reduce the appearance of ageing and general skin damage, these are the types of treatments that are recommended for different concerns.

Treating Skin Concerns with Laser – A Guide to Your Options

Skin Concern: Dullness and Poor Skin Texture

Any type of laser treatment that stimulates collagen production is ideal for improving the texture of your skin and reducing a dull appearance. As the laser remodels and stimulates the collagen in your skin, it naturally reorganises and stabilises the surface of the skin. It’s a common misconception that lasers remove the top layer of your skin. What it actually does is penetrate the surface of the skin and target the deeper layers to create a rejuvenating effect. Lasers that can improve the texture of your skin include Fraxel, Picosecond and Clear and Brilliant. 

Skin Concern: Redness

According to The DOC Cosmetic & Skin Clinic, redness is usually caused by genetics, sun damage, hormones or conditions such as rosacea. While topical treatments can be used to address skin redness, laser therapy is still the most effective option. Laser treatments target redness by heating up and destroying the blood vessels that are causing the redness. These vessels aren’t required for medical reasons so there is no harm in getting rid of them. The lasers that are ideal for reducing redness include KTP and Excel V. This advanced technology is very accurate which means it only targets the unwanted blood vessels. 

Skin Concern: Wrinkles and Sagging

Signs of ageing such as wrinkles and sagging can be treated with different forms of energy, with radiofrequency and ultrasound technology being the most effective. During a radiofrequency treatment, heat is delivered to the underlying collagen fibres, which increases collagen production. Ultrasound systems such as Ulthera are also ideal for treating wrinkles and sagging. The sound waves that are produced are completely safe and because they can be delivered at very specific depths, treatments are highly effective. Pairing radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments with injectables such as fillers will create long-lasting and natural results.

Skin Concern: Dark Spots

Once dark spots start to appear, laser is the ideal way to treat them. Pigment and fractional resurfacing lasers are the best options for treating visible dark spots. During a pigment specific laser treatment, heat is applied to each spot individually, which breaks up and destroys the pigment under the skin. Yag, Ruby and Alexandrite lasers are the most popular. Fractional resurfacing lasers stimulate collagen production but exfoliate the skin at the same time, which helps destroy dark spots. 

Skin Concern: Acne

LED light therapy is a top choice for treating acne-prone skin. The red and blue lights reduce inflammation and kill the bacteria that cause acne. Photopneumatic therapy is another popular option at the moment and it’s used to pull excess oil directly out of the pores, while killing off bacteria at the same time.

Choosing a Laser Treatment Clinic

Laser treatments are highly specialised, which means not just anyone should be applying this technology to your skin.

Before you schedule any of the above-mentioned laser treatments, it’s important to find out more about the clinic’s reputation, the qualifications of the clinician that will be assisting you and to go through some of their before and after photos to determine whether they can achieve the outcome you have in mind.

Asking around for recommendations is always a good start.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet
explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

The design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks

First of all I would like to say great blog! I had
a quick question in which I’d like to ask iif you don’t mind.
I was curious too find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usuallyy wasted simply just trying to figure oout how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
Appreciate it!
