We know you probably regularly care for your skin, but sometimes it just doesn’t cut it. No matter how many times you apply anti-aging serum it simply can’t reverse all wrinkles or age spots. So, let lasers do the work your skin care routine can’t. Here’s advice from Dr. Garth Dicker, Cosmetic & Laser Medical Centers, to get a flawless complexion.
Dr. Dicker explains how laser work, “Essentially a laser works by producing a single and specific wavelength (or color) of light. When this light is concentrated it produces head which can then be used to specifically target structures in the skin.” Some lasers eliminate melanin, which will remove the brown spots on skin or hair follicles aka laser hair removal. Depending on a lasers wavelength they can also remove rosacea, broken capillaries, blood vessels, and acne scars.
Resurfacing will reduce fine lines to smooth your skin. It targets your skin’s text rather than pigmentation. Dr. Dicker comments, “Laser skin resurfacing is when a laser device is used to produce a smoother and younger looking skin surface.”
Both ablative and non- ablative treatments are types of laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Dicker explains how the two differ, “Ablative referee to removing the surface layer of skin whereas ‘non-ablative’ refers to not removing the surface layer of skin. Ablative treatments can give faster results, but the flip side is that there is more downtime and a greater risk of complications.” Fractional ablative treatments have quickly been adopted by users as is reduces downtime by limiting the amount of skin being removed.
One treatment may work wonderfully for someone else, but is completely wrong for your skin type. When considering a laser treatment always consult a professional to get the best results for your skin type. Always research experience, education, and look at their past work.
