Whether you’ve been taking the best care of your skin over the years or have succumbed to the effects of ageing and environmental factors, laser facial treatments are something that can rejuvenate the skin in a number of fantastic ways, helping you restore that youthful, healthy and vibrant complexion.
What are laser facial treatments (resurfacing) and how do they work?
As the name suggests, laser facial treatments make use of a laser which, when projected on the skin in a concentrated manner, gives you what’s called a ‘medical-grade facial’, providing far better results than a traditional salon facial.
The focused beams of light projected on the outer layers of the skin during laser resurfacing, help to remove damaged and dying skin, while stimulating and preserving the healthy layers underneath. In the end, you will see the production of new collagen, giving you skin that’s firmer, smoother and fresh as a daisy.
The type of laser facial treatment you require depends on your skin type, your typical areas of concern and the end results you seek.
What are the benefits of laser facial treatments?
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
With age, fine lines and wrinkles can become visible around the eyes, nose, mouth and forehead. Laser skin treatments target these areas to make your skin look shinier, healthier and smoother. No more fine lines and wrinkles!
Skin tightening and more collagen production
The skin loses its elasticity with age as gravity pulls everything down. Over time, your skin sags but this is where laser facial treatments enhance skin tone and boost collagen production in the target site as well as surrounding areas. The end result is firmer, more youthful-looking skin which will improve even further over time.
Get rid of redness, brown spots or discolouration
Problems revolving around skin pigmentation, the natural ageing process or too much exposure to the sun can cause a variety of skin issues, including unwanted freckles, brown spots, redness and inflammation in the skin.
Laser facials effectively eliminate all this, correcting the skin’s natural pigmentation levels, so that you have a clearer, more even and balanced skin tone.
Reduce enlarged pores
Age and genetic factors are primarily responsible for enlarged pores, which make your skin look bumpy and uneven. For most people, this is a confidence-breaker as they become more conscious when people speak to them face to face.
Laser facial treatments are a great way to reduce enlarged pores, making your skin appear smooth and even.
Conceal traumatic, surgical and acne scars
Only sufferers of acne truly understand how frustrating it can be to deal with acne scars and find with creative ways to cover them up. Scars may also occur due to mishaps, accidents or surgeries, which can affect your appearance and self-confidence for the worse.
Laser facial treatments can greatly reduce scars, and in some cases, even get rid of them completely. It’s a win-win for your skin and general wellbeing!
