Laser treatments are a highly advanced cosmetic technique that utilize non-invasive laser energy to address a range of skincare concerns. Whether you have skin damage, wrinkles, or would like to enhance the overall quality of the skin, laser skin rejuvenation can be an effective treatment option. Here’s everything you need to know about this procedure.
The laser skin rejuvenation procedure uses non-invasive laser energy to exfoliate damaged skin layer by layer. With precisely controlled light energy, it is possible to target and eliminate sun damage, discoloration, scarring, and other imperfections. The laser energy also stimulates collagen production in the body, which can help produce tighter, firmer and healthier skin in the weeks following treatment.
Immediately after laser skin rejuvenation, patients will notice a reduction in the appearance of skin damage. As the skin heals and collagen production increases in the body, patients will notice a brighter, enhanced complexion that results in an improved skin tone and texture. These results will develop gradually over the weeks following treatment, and can continue to develop for as long as six months after treatment. However, most patients notice significant results from treatment about one or two months after their appointment.
After laser skin rejuvenation, there is very little downtime due to the non-invasive nature of the treatment. Most patients are able to return to work and other activities within a few days. However, once the skin is exfoliated during treatment, the newly revealed skin will be highly sensitive. It may also be reddened, similar to a sunburn. The skin will heal within a week or two of treatment, but it is important to protect the skin from sunlight and other irritants during this time.
