With the advancement of laser technology, cosmetic laser treatments have become increasingly popular in the US. Because lasers can target very specific areas of the skin and typically have little to zero downtime following the procedure, it’s a perfect option for many of those who are looking to improve their skin’s appearance. There are a number of cosmetic procedures that lasers can be used for, including skin rejuvenation, red and brown spot removal, tattoo removal, hair removal, vessel removal, and skin rejuvenation and tightening.
Laser Vessel Removal
Laser treatments are an effective means of removing undesirable blood vessels. Some people suffer from spider veins and other small visible vessels on their face, neck, and body often making them feel self-conscious. Through use of a laser, these unwanted blood vessels are targeted and destroyed without damaging the surrounding skin and tissues. The destroyed blood vessels become reabsorbed by the body, after which blood flow is directed away from the skin surface into deeper vessels. This procedure typically contains little or no downtime.
Laser Brown Spots Removal
When one area of the skin contains high concentration of melanin in one area, the area becomes darker in color. These areas are commonly referred to as brown spots. Laser treatments are one of the ways to address a brown spot problem. So how does it work? A laser delivers short bursts of light that break up melanin in the areas that are affected, and fades out the brown spot. The treatment leads to an improved skin complexion and more even skin tone.
Age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles are all common signs of aging. Fortunately, the aging process can also be mitigated through the use of laser treatment. In fact, laser treatments can dramatically lessen noticeable fine lines around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes. Skin rejuvenation lasers also assist in the production of new collagen, resulting in healthier, smoother skin. This leaves the patient with more youthful looking skin. Age spots can often be reduced by 50% or greater with just a single treatment and often completely with a series of treatments. One of the advantage of laser treatments is reduction of side effects and minimizing potential of infection. Several applications of laser treatments are often needed to show highly effective results for some of these cosmetic procedures.
