When it comes skin laser treatments or any cosmetic procedure, it always pays to do your research. For example, did you know that autumn is considered skin laser season? That’s because, for best results, it’s a good idea to have the procedure done when daylight hours are short, and you’re spending time indoors.
Skin Laser Treatments
Laser skin rejuvenation is a proven solution to improve your complexion. Although treatments will be tailored to your goals, issues that may be addressed include:
- Removing age spots
- Reducing wrinkles
- Tightening skin
- Banishing unwanted hair and
- Correcting uneven tone
Laser treatments and light therapy work for all types of complexions. The trick is making sure the right kind of laser is being used. There are lots of machines out there, and none of them works for everything. For example, IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments are mostly used to treat sun damage, acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. Performing a procedure with the wrong equipment can result in cell damage or discolouration, especially on darker skin types. This is the primary reason it’s best to work with a medical professional who can provide the safest and most effective treatment options.
Always remember to discuss any ongoing skin concerns before undertaking treatment. Be honest about conditions like cold sores or fever blisters as laser treatments may temporarily aggravate the skin. Additionally, when the treatment is over, remember to use a board spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis to protect your skin and prevent future damage.
